‘X-Men ’97’ Creator Reveals Key Episodes to Watch Before 3-Part Finale


This week marks the beginning of an exciting three-part story arc titled ‘Tolerance is Extinction’ in X-Men ’97. As we approach the first season finale, showrunner Beau DeMayo has recommended we revisit some crucial episodes to fully appreciate what’s coming.

One of the standout recommendations is the ‘One Man’s Worth’ storyline from the original X-Men: The Animated Series. This two-part arc is famous for its time travel plot and introduces us to a world where mutants are fighting for survival in the grim ‘Age of Apocalypse’. If you love a mix of action and complex timelines, this one’s a must-watch before diving into the new episodes.

Another key episode to catch up on is ‘The Final Decision’, the 13th episode from Season 1 of the original series. It’s packed with tension and pivotal moments that might relate to the upcoming episodes of X-Men ’97.

DeMayo also suggests the two-part ‘Sanctuary’ from Season 4 and ‘Descent’ from Season 5. These episodes include important characters like Magneto and Mister Sinister, who are likely to play major roles in the finale of X-Men ’97.

In the latest episode of X-Men ’97, ‘Bright Eyes’, we learned that Bastion is the mastermind behind some dark plans involving mutant massacres and advanced technologies. Cable, Cyclops’ time-traveling son, has returned from the future again, hinting at an intense battle against Bastion to prevent a dark future from unfolding.

What makes the finale intriguing is how these past episodes connect with the struggle against Bastion. It looks like DeMayo has crafted a story where past and present narratives intertwine, giving us a layered experience as we head into the climax of the season.

X-Men ’97 Episode 8, ‘Tolerance Is Extinction — Part 1’, is set to premiere this Wednesday, May 1. You can catch all the recommended episodes on Disney+ to get caught up before the new one drops. Let’s get ready for what promises to be a thrilling end to the season.
