BUT ABOVE IS MY BEST EFFORT AS OF 2/1/2001. AIR DATES: xmen: deal with the devil 10/6 immediately after phoenix saga xmen: no mutant is an island played 10/8/97 xmen: proteus 10/9 TODO; NUMBER THESE "Night of the Sentinels, Part I" Jubilee is saved by the X-Men when Sentinels -- giant mutant-apprehending robots -- attack a shopping mall. The X-Men discover that renegades within the government are using a Mutant Registration Program to track down and eliminate mutants. "Night of the Sentinels, Part II" The X-Men break into the Mutant Registration Office and destroy the files, but Beast is apprehended while trying to escape. Gyrich and Trask, the renegades responsible for the Sentinels, kidnap Jubilee, hoping she can lead them to the X-Men. "Enter Magneto" While Beast stands trial for the break-in, a powerful mutant 'master of magnetism' attempts to break him from prison. Professor Xavier recognizes his age-old foe Magneto, a maverick who aims to start a mutant war against humanity. "Deadly Reunions" While Professor Xavier attempts to stop Magneto's reign of destruction, Sabretooth--an old foe of Wolverine's -- infiltrates the X-Men headquarters. "Captive Hearts" Cyclops and Jean are captured by a band of underground-dwelling mutants called the Morlocks. While the X-Men attempt to rescue them, Wolverine must confront his own strong feelings for Jean and his jealousy toward Cyclops. "Cold Vengeance" Wolverine leaves the X-Men to seek solitude in the Canadian wilderness. He finds peace among a group of Baffin Island Eskimos, only to discover that Sabretooth has been stalking him all this time. "Slave Island" Hearing that mutants are welcome on the island nation of Genosha, Professor Xavier sends Storm, Gambit and Jubilee there for a vacation. They soon discover Genosha is a slave camp, where mutants are forced to construct Sentinels. "The Unstoppable Juggernaut" When Xavier's mansion is destroyed and a series of spectacular robberies are committed, the X-Men suspect a giant Russian mutant named Colossus. The real culprit turns out to be Juggernaut, Xavier's evil half-brother who's out for revenge. "The Cure" A Doctor at the Muir Island Mutant Research Center claims to have found a cure for the mutant gene. Rogue flies to the island seeking the 'cure', which turns out to be a plot by the villainous Apocalypse to turn mutants into his evil servants. "Come the Apocalypse" The immortal mutant Apocalypse terrorizes the world with his Horsemen--mutants who journeyed to Muir Island seeking the fictitious cure, but instead became the living embodiments of Famine, Pestilence, War, and Death. Can the X-Men stop them from carrying out Apocalypse's plan to annihilate all humankind? "Days of Future Past, Part I" A mutant time traveler, Bishop, arrives from the future to stop a traitorous mutant from assassinating Senator Kelly. The problem is, the journey has given him temporary amnesia. Bishop can't remember who the assassin is--except that it's one of the X-Men! "Days of Future Past, Part II" Bishop identifies the traitor -- the mysterious Cajun Gambit! Can the X-Men stop Bishop from destroying Gambit before the assassination can take place? Should they? "The Final Decision" Recovering from their initial battle with the X-Men, Gyrich and Trask have resumed Project Wideawake by creating the ultimate Sentinel: the Master Mold, a walking factory capable of creating Sentinel robots at an assembly-line pace. The X-Men must join with their oldest nemesis, Magneto, to destroy the Master Mold and prevent the extermination of all mutantkind. ================== "'Til Death Do Us Part, Part I" As Jean and Cyclops attempt to tie the knot, Mr. Sinister lays traps to destroy the X-Men one by one. Sinister's agent of destruction is none other than poor, tormented Morph who has his own bone to pick with the X-Men. "'Til Death Do Us Part, Part II" Mr. Sinister's efforts to destroy the X-Men appear to be working as he and Morph turn the superheroes against each other. Even Professor X and Magneto foolishly fall into a Sinister trap. "Whatever It Takes" The Shadow King lures Storm home to Mt. Kilimanjaro by 'possessing' her young spiritual son Mjnari. Meanwhile Wolverine appeals to a schizophrenic Morph to rejoin the X-Team. "Red Dawn" Omega Red, the ultimate living weapon, is resuscitated by three corrupt generals who want to reclaim and rule the crumbling old Soviet empire. Colossus, with the help of the X-Men, fights to save his country and its fragile freedom from these forces of tyranny. "Repo Man" Vindicator and the Canadian Alpha Flight capture Wolverine. They demand some return on their investment: either he joins their team as originally planned or they repossess his indestructible, adamantium skeleton. [KIPP][HERE][NEXT] "X-Ternally Yours" An ancient tithe and an age old family feud force Gambit to return to his southern roots...where the woman he jilted at the altar waits to enact some sweet revenge. "Time Fugitives, Part I" Once again, Bishop, an upstart mutant from the 21st century must travel back to the present day to help the X-Men fight a plague that threatens to consume all mutant kind. "Time Fugitives," Part II As human mutant relations worsen and the plague rages uncontrollably, Cable, another time traveler, takes matters into his own bionic hand to set the present straight and save his own future world. "A Rogue's Tale" When Mystique, Rogue's foster mother, forces her to revisit her own past, Rogue's overpowering flashbacks drive her from the X-Men and into the waiting arms of Ms. Marvel, Rogue's first enemy. On a psychic plane, an avenging Ms. Marvel and an apologetic Rogue battle it out. "Beauty and the Beast" Against all odds, Dr. McCoy (Beast) falls in love with Carly, a blind patient of his. Carly's father is a rampant mutant hater until the Friends of Humanity thugs kidnap Carly then, only the X-Men can help. "Mojovision" Mojo, a very megalomaniacal, interdimensional network programmer (is there any other kind?) casts the X-Men as his latest all galaxy television hit, when he uses his psychic powers to pit them against one another on a far distant planet. The blood thirsty crowd goes wild and the X-Men's fight to the death will ensure the greedy showman's highest ratings ever. "Reunion," Part I A captured Xavier and Magneto are the bait as Mr. Sinister lures the other X-Men to his Savage Land castle. After capturing the team, Sinister will use their genetic material to update Magneto's lowly band of 'mutates' to create his own army of unstoppable mutants. "Reunion, Part II" Upon touchdown in Savage Land, the X-Men lose all their mutant skills and are immediately captured by Sinister's Nasty Boys. As Sinister begins to DNA imprint Rogue, Wolverine and island native Kazar must stop the procedure and save all their drained and hypnotized companions. ================== "Out of the Past, Part I" Wolverine's former love, a Japanese woman named Yuriko, believes Wolverine caused her father's death. She has turned herself into a living weapon, the cyborg Lady Deathstrike, and has come to America to seek revenge. Deathstrike lures Wolverine and the X-Men into the Morlock tunnels where she hopes that a stunning, alien discovery may be the secret to her destroying the man she once loved so deeply. "Out of the Past, Part II" Yuriko's alien discovery--a Shi'ar vessel--turns out to be a prison cell containing a voracious, gaseous prisoner, the M'Kraan Spirit Drinker. It immediately attacks Wolverine, Deathstrike and her cohorts, the Reavers, throwing them together to struggle against it. When the Spirit Drinker absorbs Jubilee's spirit, will Wolverine be able to overcome the alien creature or will he join Jubilee, locked inside it forever? phoenix 1 "Sacrifice" Shi'ar emissary Eric the Red commandeers the Eagle One space station, so his emperor D'Ken can launch a surprise attack on the one person who stands between him and the all-powerful M'Kraan crystal, his sister Lilandra. Will the X-Men stop D'Ken and his mission before he brings an interstellar war to the earth's doorstep? And who can withstand re-entry in order to safely land the shuttle now that the auto pilot is damaged? phoenix 2 "Dark Shroud" Jean Grey pilots the shuttle, but her psycho-kinetic shield fails her. When she calls out for help, the mysterious, amorphous Phoenix force takes over. Even after the shuttle is safe, Jean can neither remember her ordeal, nor can she shake the feeling she is not herself. Meanwhile Professor X also undergoes an alarming transformation. He retreats to Ireland to rest... until two surprise visitors appear. Or is he imagining things? phoenix 3 "Cry of the Banshee" At great personal risk, Lilandra comes to Professor X's aid in Ireland. Lilandra again pleads with Professor X for assistance in the M'Kraan matter. As Jean struggles against the Phoenix energies, the other X-Men worry that the professor has lost his mind--especially now that he insists his mysterious 'friend' Lilandra, who no one else has ever seen, has been inexplicably kidnapped. phoenix 4 "Starjammers" Jean loses her identity to the Phoenix spirit as the battle for the M'Kraan crystal approaches. The amazingly powerful Jean/Phoenix transports all the X-Men to Lilandra's ship where the empress has hidden the crystal. But D'Ken is waiting and so is another band of would-be crystal thieves... Corsair, Raza, Hepzibah and Ch'od. The battle to save the crystal and the universe as we know it gets more hopeless by the minute. phoenix 5 "Child of Light" D'Ken achieves his terrifying goal--the crystal is his, allowing him to create his own universe inside the all-powerful gem. Under D'Ken's influence, the crystal begins to suck life from the solar system into itself like a black hole. D'Ken is fast becoming the power of the living galaxy. What has become of Phoenix? Must she sacrifice herself and Jean to save the world? "Obsession" Archangel has become obsessed with destroying Apocalypse, who he blames for ruining his life. A sympathetic Rogue joins his reckless, Ahab-like quest, against the warnings of the other X-Men, who have their own, more indirect plan to stop Apocalypse. In the end, the X-Men have Apocalypse in their grasp, only to have their plan ruined by Archangel's unthinking vengefulness. "Cold Comfort" Former X-Man Bobby 'Iceman' Drake is caught breaking into a top secret government installation. The X-Men free him and take him to Xavier, who grieves over this former favorite pupil who walked out on the X-Men and has apparently gone bad. But Bobby had a reason for breaking into the installation, a reason he will only confide to the one X-Man he still trusts, Hank 'Beast' McCoy. "Savage Land: Strange Heart, Part I" Under the instruction of high priestess Zaladane, Sauron, a strange half man/half pterodactyl, kidnaps Storm to the Savage Land in order to feed from her pure, boundless mutant energy. Separated from the X team, Storm is encouraged by Sauron to free her inner tempest of energy -- but does she dare? When the X-Men arrive they must fight off dinosaurs, Sauron, a mysterious power named Garokk and... Storm! "Savage Land: Strange Heart, Part II" While Storm revels in her own elemental powers, Garokk, the stone spirit, secretly rejuvenates himself through her uninhibited energy display. Can the X-Men and the native Fall people control Storm and overpower Garokk before he fuses with the island's volcano and the surging planetary force below it? dark phoenix 1 "Dazzled" The Phoenix continues to inhabit Jean's body, brazenly taking over at will. As a chanteuse named Dazzler flirts with Scott, Jean/Phoenix finds herself psychically seduced by Jason Wyngarde, with help from Emma Frost and the other mutants in the Inner Circle Club. Wyngarde weaves a new history for the confused Jean/Phoenix, creating a passionate romance between himself and her. When the X-Men come to rescue Jean, they find her fighting alongside Wyngarde -- her fiance. dark phoenix 2 "Inner Circle" As Professor X and Emma Frost battle for psychic control of Jean, the Inner Circle members quarrel over how to dispose of their prisoners the X-Men. Is Jean and Scott's psychic connection gone forever? Or is she strong enough to overcome Phoenix's influence and Wyngarde's trickery to remember who she is...or at least was? dark phoenix 3 "Dark Phoenix" When the X-Men confront Phoenix to give up Jean's body, Phoenix vows to destroy the team. To re-energize, she flies up through the D'Bari Star System, passing a very surprised Shi'ar Star Cruiser crew. As they watch in horror, she feeds upon and destroys an entire star system. To defend space life as they know it, the Shi'ar empress Lilandra decrees Phoenix/Jean Gray must die. dark phoenix 4 "The Fate of Phoenix" The X-Men battle Lilandra's Imperial Guards for 'custody' of Phoenix/Jean Gray. Although Xavier and Lilandra wish they could settle amicably, they are set on opposite courses. When Phoenix falls in battle, Xavier startles everyone by commanding the X-Men to stop Phoenix now, while she is vulnerable. But how can Cyclops, Wolverine, Storm or any of the team strike Phoenix while she inhabits the body of their dearest friend and teammate Jean Gray? And what will happen if they don't? [JEAN IS GONE] Xavier Remembers - this episode is technically a last-season/season 5 episode, however, at the end, they detect Jean's return, so CONTINUITY-WISE, it exists at some point past Dark Phoenix 4 but before Jean returns in the old season 1/2/3 episodes. (she was gone for 6 or so episodes) [JEAN RETURNS] 62. Family Ties Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch go to Wundagore to meet The High Evolutionary and discover that Magneto is their true father. b: 04-May-1996 pc: 412 w: Marley Clark NOTE: For some reason, David Hemblen does not provide the voice for Magneto in this episode. Amazing that this is the only appearance of the Scarlet Witch, considering the fact that she is part of the Avengers. There that annoying oppinion it's amazing, it's a pity, this and that goes again (as a reference to my comment on the one kind of the same on the episode Beyond good and evil part 2). In fact forget what I just said look at Beyond good and evil part 2 for the criticism there to and see if you agree. Also this has been appearing lately in alot of other episodes. Please use the form! The Scarlet Witch appears for the first time; Professor X and Wolverine seem to know who she is, suggesting that she's been active off-screen (and of course, she was briefly seen in "Repo Man"). The High Evolutionary debuts in real-time (he was shown in a flashback in "Savage Land, Savage Heart, Part 2). "Orphan's End" Cyclops discovers that Corsair, a space pirate with a checkered past, may be his father. Corsair is on the run from Shi'ar authorities, who demand that Cyclops turn him over to them. Corsair swears his innocence. Will Cyclops turn in the man who may have abandoned him as a child? "Juggernaut Returns" Juggernaut's life is at risk when someone else uncovers the Ruby of Cyttorak and claims the powers of Juggernaut for himself! Will the Professor let his brother perish, or will he restore to power one of his most intractable foes? "Nightcrawler" Gambit, Rogue, and Wolverine take a ski trip in Germany for some much-needed R & R. While Gambit and Rogue seem to be enjoying themselves, Wolverine is restless, and longs for some action. When he hears reports of a demon hiding in a local monastery, his investigation reveals not a demon, but a mutant, Nightcrawler, whose devilish appearance is in stark contrast to his peaceful and deeply philosophical nature. While the X-Men convince the townsfolk not to fear what they do not understand, Wolverine, too, learns something about the nature of faith. "Weapon X, Lies, & Videotape" A cryptic postcard unleashes a flood of maddening and painful memories in Wolverine that threaten to drive him insane. To keep his mind from being torn apart, Wolverine and Beast travel to the one location that may hold the answers to his hidden past: the ruins of the top-secret Weapon X lab where Wolverine's bones were laced with adamantium. There he encounters other former 'test subjects' -- Sabretooth, Maverick and Silver Fox -- who are suffering similar mental breakdowns. Old passions and rivalries are reignited as the four former government agents break into the lab, leading to an explosive climax and the realization that some secrets are best left buried... ================= SPIDERMAN: "The Mutant Agenda, Part II" Wolverine catches up with Spider-Man, hot on the trail of Landon. Inside the laboratory, Landon is about to 'dip' The Beast in a strange chemical stew, but Spidey and Wolverine crash through the lab wall in the nick of time. When Landon accidentally falls into his own experiment, he metamorphoses into a monster that feeds on electric energy. Can Spider-Man and The X-Men succeed in stopping a 50-foot-tall former scientist turned ohm-eating menace? "Proteus, Part I" "Proteus, Part II" When Proteus discovers that his deadbeat dad is a prominent politician, he storms the Union Hall right in the middle of his dad's campaign speech on 'family values.' Can Xavier compel Proteus the monster to allow Kevin the boy to meet his father, or will Proteus destroy the dad who has disowned him? "Sanctuary, Part I" Weary of battling for mutant supremacy, Magneto offers to transport all mutants to an orbiting asteroid where they can live human-free lives in peace. However, the governments of the world feel threatened by Magneto's plan, and decide to blow the asteroid up -- until Professor X intervenes on Magneto's behalf. In an effort to understand Magneto's intentions, Beast, Gambit, and Xavier visit Magneto's peaceful asteroid, only to be implicated in the assassination of Magneto! "Sanctuary, Part II" As Magneto plummets helplessly to Earth, Fabian Cortez assumes control of Asteroid M, blames the X-Men for Magneto's disappearance and holds the world hostage with the asteroid's stolen nuclear arsenal. Can the X-Men stop the deranged traitor in time or will Cortez succeed in his maniacal plan to destroy life on Earth? "Beyond Good and Evil, Part I: The End of Time" This four-parter begins in the year 3999 in an Apocalypse vs. Cable face-off which Apocalypse wins by stealing Cable's computer and with it the ability to time travel. Now no one is safe with the X-Men's sworn enemies portal-ing in and out of time and space...all on Jean and Scott's second attempt at a wedding day. And when Apocalypse kidnaps Jean Gray, Professor X cannot get a psychic reading on her anywhere. Meanwhile Bishop gets trapped in the axis of time. When his sister Shard goes looking for him, she portals to the X Mansion but is she too late to help? "Beyond Good and Evil, Part II: Promise of Apocalypse" In what seems to be a terrible scheme to rule the fate of humankind, Apocalypse and a stunning array of evil colleagues have conceived of a plan to engineer a new breed of human. Professor X notices the kidnapping victims all seem to be psychic mutants...but where is Apocalypse taking them and will the others ever be able to follow? "Beyond Good and Evil, Part III: The Lazarus Chamber" Professor X's efforts to locate Jean and Cable's tracking of Apocalypse somehow inexplicably converge when Cable finds himself portalled unwittingly into the midst of the X-Men who are also seeking out Apocalypse. Together they determine Apocalypse is plotting nothing less than the ruling of Time itself. "Beyond Good and Evil, Part IV: End and Beginning" As the true and terrifying nature of Apocalypse's final plan emerges, several in his band of villainous cohorts try to stop him. Can they free the captured Professor X and the other psychics in time to save Time and the universe as we know it? "One Man's Worth, Part I" Bishop and his sister Shard travel back in time in order to stop an alternate and unacceptable future--a future without Professor X and where the X-Men never existed. Brother and sister arrive in 'alternate present,' where humans battle violently against 'The Leader' Magneto, and his followers who include husband and wife Wolverine and Storm. Can Bishop and Shard convince Storm and Wolverine that someone whom they have never met, Charles Xavier, holds the fate of mutant-human relations in his hands? Can they convince Storm and Wolverine to choose to create a future which holds the promise of Xavier and the X-Men but which denies them the love they have found in this life? "One Man's Worth, Part II" Failing to stop the assassination of Xavier, Storm convinces Wolverine they must help Shard and Bishop until they succeed in ensuring Xavier's existence. They travel forward to the future but now the past has changed enough so that Forge's time travel machine has never been tested--not to mention that Forge has no idea who these four time travelers are! Will Nimrod succeed in stopping them? Will Forge's machine function...if he even allows them to use it? Or will this band of time travelers fail to save Xavier for a second time? "Courage" The very day Morph returns to the X-Men, a terrorist attack on a top-secret high tech weapons factory interrupts his home-coming party. When Morph and Wolverine investigate, they discover every mutant's worst nightmare has come true -- the Sentinels are back in action -- the very same group that almost ended Morph's career as an X-Man. Can he come to grips with his own inner fears and face these terrifying opponents? "Have Yourself a Morlock Little Christmas" As all of the X-Men prepare for a festive Christmas, foster child Jubilee is thrilled. It's her first Christmas as part of the X-Men 'family.' She, Storm, and grouchy humbug wolverine go to Manhattan for some last-minute shoppingonly to be caught in a life-or-death crisis involving Leech, the littlest Morlock. Can Wolverine provide the miracle that will save the child's life? Can Jubilee's Christmas be saved? Will Jean and Gambit stop fighting in the kitchen? "The Lotus and the Steel" Wolverine, losing control, quits the X-Men to return to rural Japan, site of happier times, in an effort to find himself. He works peacefully with a former spiritual teacher, the monk Oku, to build a temple. But the neighboring village is about to be attacked by bandits, led by the merciless Silver Samurai, unless payment is made. Some of the villagers want to resist, and ask Wolverine for help. Wolverine is torn. This is just the sort of thing he had wanted to leave behind. Meanwhile, Jubilee, blaming herself for Wolverine's abrupt departure, is searching rural Japan for him. Will Wolverine break from his spiritual reclusion and fight? Will Jubilee find him in time? "Love in Vain" Rogue is stunned when Cody, her first love, tracks her down. Meanwhile in a New Mexico desert, Wolverine witnesses the crash of a spaceship carrying horrific, alien bug-like creatures -- the Family -- which overwhelm him. As Cody and Rogue plan for a weekend trip, Rogue is shocked to realize they are heading for the New Mexico desert! Is this coincidence or is Cody in some way connected to the Family? "Secrets Not Long Buried" When Cyclops flies solo to a tiny western desert community to see an old friend, his plane is blasted out of the sky. Injured, he struggles into town, only to discover his friend is missing and the town is caught in the grips of a militant, mutant-only, anti-human hate group called The Children of the Shadow. As Cyclops -- minus his mutant power because of his injuries -- searches for his lost friend, The Children of the Shadow hunt him down. None of the townspeople will help. Will Cyclops, after enduring years of anti-mutant prejudice, be killed because now no one believes he's a mutant?
