X-Men ’97‘s premiere created a lot of excitement around Marvel’s new animated series and is likely to have viewers wondering when exactly they will be able to watch the next episode. Not only did X-Men ’97 episode 1 and 2 garner overwhelmingly positive reviews, it also left viewers on a major cliffhanger. This combination of a high-quality new show and an exciting plot-hook means the third episode is highly anticipated.


All X-Men ’97 episodes are scheduled to be released on Disney+ at the same time on their respective release dates. Although the show premiered two episodes at once, the remainder of X-Men ’97‘s episodes will be released one at a time a week apart. This includes the show’s three-part finale, “Tolerance Is Extinction.” Anyone looking forward to learning exactly what is going to happen to Storm without powers, or what’s going on with the two Jean Greys can tune into the show as soon as it premieres, but it may mean staying up a little later than usual.

X-Men ’97‘s weekly release schedule mirrors the original weekly releases of the original X-Men: The Animated Series.

What To Expect From X-Men ’97 Episode 3

X-Men ’97 season 1, episode 2, “Mutant Liberation Begins” set up several major storylines that will likely continue in episode 3, “Fire Made Flesh,” and throughout the season. Based on the episode’s title, episode 3 will likely focus on the cliffhanger regarding the multiple Jean Greys from the end of episode 2. The title is part of a quote that Jean Grey says both during the original “Dark Phoenix Saga” in the comics, and in X-Men: The Animated Series‘ adaptation of the same story:


The mortal Jean Grey is no more. I am fire-made flesh, power incarnate. I am the Dark Phoenix!

Although the episode’s title indicates that Jean will be the main focus, it is likely that a B-story will focus on Storm’s life now that she no longer has her mutant powers. The way people stared at her on the bus at the end of episode 2 seems to indicate she is still recognized as an X-Men member, even though she doesn’t have her powers. This could lead to some dangerous situations for Storm, who could be targeted by X-Men ’97 villains like the Friends of Humanity.
