STEPHEN MELCHING'S X-MEN ANIMATED ARCHIVE

X-MEN -- "Weapon X, Lies, and Videotape"
Outline dated 5/23/94


Page 4: Please substitute a robot or some such for the grizzly bear Wolverine fights.


Page 5: Please do not refer to Maverick as Wolverine's "drinking buddy."


Page 8: Please substitute for the use of "Shiva," a Hindu god. A name from Greek mythology, or some such would be acceptable.


Page 9: It will not be acceptable for Sabretooth to say he wants to "kill" Wolverine.


X-MEN -- "Weapon X, Lies, and Videotape"
First Draft Script dated 6/22/94


Pages 1 and 13 (flashback): Silver Fox may be in jeopardy, but she should not be lying on the floor injured. Also, please lose either Sabretooth's "...and tasty," or "just like..." to avoid a suggestive reference to Silver Fox.


Pages 2 and 16: Please do not show Wolverine and Sabretooth "trading blows" (socking each other with their fists).


Pages 3-5: Please do not have Wolverine intentionally slash the support for the lights so they strike Cyclops, and do not have Cyclops seriously hurt or knocked unconscious. Cyclops and Xavier should not require hospitalization or monitoring afterwards.


Page 9: It will not be acceptable for Wolverine to say "I almost killed Scott." Something like "I was completely out of control when I attacked Scott" would be acceptable.


Page 11: Caution that the dummies are faceless, or some such, so viewers clearly see that they are not human.


Page 14: Please do not have Wolverine attack Sabretooth first.


Page 15: Caution to make all the weapons futuristic.


Page 17: Please delete or substitute for Sabretooth calling Silver Fox "squaw."


Page 20: Please limit the shots fired in the "Andre" scene. Each person should fire no more than one blast.


Page 27: Please delete or substitute for Sabretooth calling Silver Fox a "stupid skirt," and do not have him raise his hand to strike her.


Page 31: Please have Beast stun the team members at the very beginning of their attack on each other.
