After a 25-year absence, Disney Plus is bringing X-Men: The Animated Series back to our televisions. The television series is a direct continuation of the five-season programme that was a favourite of comic book and superhero fans who were young in the 1990s.
Yes, this includes well-known X-Men characters such as Wolverine, Jean Grey, Magneto, Cyclops, Jubilee, and Beast fighting the good fight in their ’90s attire. This frequently leads to conflict, with Magneto attempting to rule the world with mutant abilities and Professor X’s brilliant progeny attempting to improve coexistence with those without mutant abilities.
The animated programme promises to be both a trip down memory lane and a revival of a sci-fi television series for a modern audience. What impact will the release of X-Men 1997 have on the MCU? Exists the original cast in its entirety? And, really, how will it continue the story of the mutants?
X-Men ’97 Release Date
In the fall of 2023, X-Men ’97 will be shown for the first time on Disney Plus. At the Marvel Animation panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, the details were shared with the public. X-Men ’97 has been picked up for a second season. At San Diego Comic-Con 2022, the information was made public.
X-Men ’97 Plot
No one knows what happens in X-Men 1997. But we do know that it is a direct follow-up to the series from 1992. This means we’ll find out what happened after Magneto and the other mutants said goodbye to Professor Xavier.
By going to the planet Shi’Ar with Lilandra, the good leader made everyone he knew and loved wonder if he would ever come back. Yes, The Simpsons’ joke about Poochie was the last thing in the show. The good thing about a weird anticlimax is that it leaves a lot of loose ends for the authors to figure out later.
Professor X’s health is, of course, the most important thing, especially now that he has left a power vacuum. Magneto will take Professor X’s place as leader of the X-Men, according to recent announcements made at the San Diego Comic-Con.
Sunspot, Cable, Bishop, and Nightcrawler will also join the team, which is a good thing since they will have to deal with Mister Sinister and his experiments on mutants, the Sentinels, and the Hellfire club.
You can expect all of these, plus any other themes and ideas that the writers can fit into X-Men ’97. Maybe there will be more Phalanx or a story about the Avengers and the X-Men. At the moment, there are a number of options.
