[show]According to Producer/Writer/Director Boyd Kirkland, the Acolytes provided new, bigger challenges for the heroes to face. The theme of the series was growth, beginning with these guys first discovering their powers, and then learning how to use them while still trying to get along with the "normal" world. According to Kirkland, by season 3, they knew they had to up the stakes. The Brotherhood hadn't really developed into the kind of team Magneto wanted, so he recruited Gambit, Colossus and Pyro. The first two were very popular X-Men characters in the comics, and Kirkland and co. wanted them in their series. But we already had many more heroes than villains, so the writers and producers thought it would be fun and more surprising to break with convention and introduce Gambit and Colossus as bad guys. However, these two would be conflicted about what they were doing, and would eventually join the X-Men. According to Kirkland this is one of the stories that never got to be told.
- The US version got a new opener from this episode onwards (episode 3.10 "X23").
- Magneto and Mystique meet their apparent end in episode 4.01 "Impact".
