[ Archives: May - August ]


[ 20th of October 2002 ]

Sorry for the lack of updates, I've been having Internet connection problems. But, I will have a big surprise for you all later this week hopefully, so until then I won't be able to update much either. However, please keep coming to this site - we're nearly at the 3,000 hits mark!!! :) As soon as I've finished what I'm working on I'll be back to updating regularly again! 

[ 13th of October 2002 ] 

New quotes courtesy of Rogue238 and I am currently working on the Jean bio. I also fixed the links to some of the downloadables that weren't working. Still haven't seen Day of Recovery, thought it was gonna be on today but do you know what the stupid people did?!?! They showed Joyride, . . arghh . . why don't they show stuff that nobody over here's seen yet?!? 

[ 10th of October 2002 ]

I've added stuff! Yes! There's new stuff in the Downloads section: check out the wonderful Rogue Otaku Mascot, wallpaper and an X-Evo screen saver!!

And, lots and lots of news from the Continuum below! . . . .

Report #1 - 

The original five members of the X-Men will team up for an episode of X-Men: Evolution this season.

"We really wanted to do an original five episode and we struggled to figure out how the heck we could get just those five characters together, and we did a nice job, I think," Marvel Studios' Craig Kyle said. "You get to see the original team in an episode by themselves. It's pretty cool."

The episode will involve one of the three keys needed to unlock Apocalypse.

Kyle was speaking at a recent X-Men: Evolution convention panel in Los Angeles.


Report #2 - 

Mystique and Spyke step into the spotlight in upcoming episodes of X-Men: Evolution on Kids' WB!.

The network on Tuesday night announced the following schedule: "Blind Alley" on Saturday, Oct. 19, a repeat of "Mindbender" on Saturday, Oct. 26, "X-Treme Measures" on Saturday, Nov. 2

X-Men: Evolution story editor Greg Johnson provided The Continuum with loglines for the new episodes.

In "Blind Alley," Mystique escapes Area 51 with one thing on her mind: vengeance against the person who locked her in there.

In "X-Treme Measures," Evan's mutation is becoming more and more difficult to control, and so is his temper. He finally finds solace and acceptance in a most unlikely place -- but at what cost?

It's likely at least two more new episodes of X-Men: Evolution will air in November.

Oh yes, and how could I forget to mention that we're already past the 2000 hits mark! Wahey! :) :) :) - as a treat, take a look at wnat movie Nightcrawler is gonna look like:

And I know I said I'd add some content today . . . sorry about that. I'll definitely, definitely do it next time! 

[ 30th of September 2002 ]

I'm really busy right now, but I am really hoping to add some actual content to the site next update - it'll most probably be Jean's bio and if I've got time then hopefully I'll manage a couple more. In the meantime, you can click here to read a very long and detailed report about X-Men: Evo from X-Fan, with some interesting revelations about the 'whys' and 'hows' by the shows producers. Below are a few interesting snippets form the article:


" . . . The team also spoke of the current third season, and confirmed that Apocalypse will be the major threat for this season, but moreso towards the latter half. There was also mention of the possibility of a fourth season, but the current focus is on season three.

An upcoming episode, tentatively titled "Self Possessed", will focus on Rogue. The team wants to limit her mutation, so as not to make her more powerful. Don't expect to see Rogue flying any time soon.

Questions were asked about other Marvel Universe characters appearing in the series, to which the creators responded that legal issues limit said appearances as these characters are already locked into other projects, such as movies, with other companies.

Gambit, Pyro and Colossus were not originally considered for the show, but were later added to the second season finale. Fans can expect to see more of them in season three.

Iceman was originally conceived as a member for the show's debut season. His appearance in the series is thanks to his being a founding member of the original X-Men in the comic books, so fans can expect more air time with him.

Due to his popularity, there will be more focus on Wolverine. As to why the older characters, such as Wolverine and Storm, only appear occasionally, the answer is that Kids' WB! wanted prime focus on the younger characters, so the older X-Men were relegated to mentor status . . . "

There is also going to be a DVD available in March 2003 showing the third season that will include scenes that were apparently cut from episodes viewed by American viewers due to September 11th. However, I know I saw these scenes when the episodes were shown over her, so these extra parts won't be anything new to some . . .  

" . . . In Act 3 of "Growing Pains", Avalanche and the Brotherhood are busy destroying the football field. Jean uses her telekinesis to save Principal Kelly, who then uses his cell phone to call the police. Jean snatches the phone from his hands with her powers and smashes it to pieces. Rogue becomes buried under the debris of the bleachers after Blob destroys them. Lance notices the mascot about to fall on Kitty after she saves a female student and pushes her to safety, causing the mascot to fall on him instead.

In Act 3 of "Power Surge", following Xavier probe of Jean's mind, a flash of immense power escapes Jean's unconscious body. We see first hand evidence of the power Jean truly possesses as she begins to re-arrange matter on a molecular level.

In "Badda Bing, Badda Boom", after Tabitha and her father fall through the roof, Kurt teleports them safely to the ground. Tabitha's father knocks out Kurt in an effort to escape with the money he stole. Tabitha gives chase as they run outside and straight into the waiting police officers. . . "

[ 21st of September 2002 ]

Yay!!!! I'm soo happy and it's all thanks to Brittney and her fabulous star award!! Thank you Brittney!! ^_^

Today, I also bring you new character bios!!! Celebrate! These ones are Kitty and Scott!!! :) A report from the Comic Continuum a few days ago also hinted at things to come on the third season: 

"They've [the new episodes] all been good. My second one is a very interesting one with Mystique and Scott. It kind of becomes a fight between the two of them in a dark basement, which is kind of weird. It had a lot of fun stuff and a lot of action. 

And there's another one with Rogue. The scripts I've worked on have been among the best stuff I've ever gotten. And the final one, well… (laughs)."

A new link to a brand-spanking new site called The Institute - go visit it! Aaaand I have a new page (kinda) it's a message board for all you people to leave your views on episodes, chat, tell me stuff about the site or whatever! Everyone's more than welcome so go leave a post now!! Yay! However, it will probably take quite a while to load so please be patient.

Also, I did some more episode guides, two I think, and am in the process of completing some more character bios as that is what you lovely people seem to want me to do according to that poll to the left ^_~

[ 11th of September 2002 ]

I'm sooo sorry for the severe lack of updates lately but I've been busy working on a new site during all my free time (Just couldn't resist . . ) . This isn't much of an update 'cause there's no actual content been added by myself right now but I do have the next chapter of 'New Stuff'' by Barbara and have been planning what I'm gonna do for the Competitions section on the 'Other Stuff' page so look out for that soon . . . . .

Oh, and also, the Continuum has reported that the episode to be aired on September 21st called The Stuff of Heroes will concentrate on the search for Xavier, focus on Storm and see the return of a guest star.


[ Disclaimer: Waah! They're not mine. Nope, surprisingly enough I don't own the X-Men, Evolution, the Brotherhood or pretty much anything on this site except my own boring lumps of text, the very amateurish looking prize banners and buttons, the layout and any remotely original ideas.  Anyway, don't sue or anything cause I am officially stating now *ahem* that X-Men stuff all belongs to Marvel and not me! I should also probably note that all the Evo news stuff on this site was probably taken from the Comics Continuum and the music that plays on the site is courtesy of this site. ]
