As for being caricatures, have you read the old comics? There is some really cheesy dialogue in those older X-books. The dialogue and story telling was way better in the animated series.
You just answered your question. Batman. Everything about that show makes XTAS look like a joke. The animation was gorgeous and current for its time. The voice acting fits right in with the quality you would get today.
