Can someone clarify something for me regarding Mutant X? I had always heard Mutant X was supposed to originally spin-off of the first X-Men film---(I've read a few things over the years that originally the characters would wear uniforms, had code names, etc.)...but FOX and the lawsuits started and most of the X-Related stuff was scrapped and changed with the only thing somewhat remaining was that the team had their version of the "X-Jet"......I due remember the first season had a disclaimer with regards to X-Men though.
