Excerpt from his video “X-MEN ANIMATED SERIES 25th ANNIVERSARY PANEL”
Let Larry Houston tell the story in his own words
Through Larry’s encyclopedic knowledge of the X-Men books, he would populate larger scenes  which had multiple mutants in the background
For legal reasons the characters were written as Mutant 1, Mutant 2, Mutant 3, Mutant 4…
Never used their real names
Once had an issue trying to use Spider-Man in Dark Phoenix that wasn’t allowed
Larry used characters Marvel had the rights to, but had not given the series permission to use yet
Fans would recognize but the general public they were generic mutants.
Left before the production of the final 11 episodes

Patrick Stewart Talks (Confirms?!) Professor X and DOCTOR STRANGE 2 | INTERVIEW
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jIJ5g8c-OQ
On Jake's Takes, Stewart was asked about the recent Multiverse of Madness trailer. "Well, I had my phone turned off as it happened, so I didn’t hear anything," he said. "It wasn’t until the next morning when I woke up and looked at my phone and found that I had been bombarded with responses and that my PR people had sent me reactions that they had detailed and passed onto me… I actually didn’t recognize my own voice, it sounded different. Whether I had a cold or something at the time, I don’t know. But I was astonished, and all they saw was the back of my shoulder, and I think my earlobe, nothing else. There would have been so many connections made. But, uh, it pleased me."
