@xxCellPhoneGirlxx: The cartoon was like lossely based on the Blue team to me, but they had members of the gold team as well(Storm, Jean Grey). I wouldn't advise someone to watch the cartoon, but it's really nothing like the comic book at that time. It was a very good cartoon though.
" @nickDMC: For some reason i can't really see Magneto leading a team, because like.. who would really follow him? before Nightcrawler died i remember him saying something about that. I need to find that issue >.> "
A lot of characters would follow Mags. It's just that he wouldn't want them to like in X-Men #1.
