Wolverine and the X-Men officially consists of the one season.
The show mainly focuses on the characters Wolverine, Cyclops, Emma Frost, Nightcrawler, Beast, Storm, Charles Xavier, Rogue, Colossus, Shadowcat, Iceman, Forge, Bishop, Domino, Polaris, Jean Grey, Magneto, Scarlet Witch, Blink, and Quicksilver.
During the height of the fandom (2008-2009), fanworks were mainly found on FanFiction.Net and on the Livejournal community andthexmen. The fandom is slowly branching to AO3. Fanfiction is still being posted to FFN as of 2016.
Several crossovers appeared for the fandom, the most popular one being X-Men: Evolution, which not surprising since many fans of WATXM were fans of the XME series first and often compared the two or combined them as WATXM being a future version of XME.
Due to the fact that the fandom is small, it's hard to judge exactly which pairings are popular but several pairings have appeared multiple times:
Most of the pairings are fairly common X-Men ships.
- The Nightmare by green_amberjade, the first? fic for the fandom - is an attempt to show the transition from X-Men: Evolution to WXM (Rogue/Quicksilver, Rogue/Gambit, Rogue/Cyclops)
- DominoxRogue yuri by Demon-Keychain (Domino/Rogue)
- Nightcrawler and Scarlet Witch by VolodyaNocturne (Kurt/Wanda)
