In my opinion, TAS had the better Rogue but Evo had better characterization of just about every other character. It was much more well grounded and you actually had a chance to see many of the characters grow into the leaders and people they were in a series like TAS(Which just copy/pasted and watered down most of the stories and characters from the comics). The villains were alot better and more convincing, the brotherhood was much more relatable, Apocalypse was much more powerful, mythical, ruthless, and intimidating, and Mystique's screwed up relationship with Rogue and her views were way better than TAS' and more convincing. The school was better represented(instead a small team operating outside of a huge building) and many of the stories were more original. Which helped you to enjoy it more instead of watching a watered down rehash.
