Marvel Animation revealed plenty of news regarding their upcoming revival of the X-Men ’97 series. The series is set to feature the return of the classic team and some exciting new characters.
The core team will feature Rogue, Gambit, Wolverine, Jubilee, Cyclops, Storm, Jean Grey, and Beast, all reprising their roles from the original series. In addition, new heroes set to make their debuts include Sunspot, Morph, Cable, Bishop, Forge, and Nightcrawler. The team will now be led by Magneto himself, who will be sporting a costume based on his look in the 80’s Uncanny X-Men comics.
A number of villains are set to appear in the show, including Sebastian Shaw, Emma Frost, Calypso, Val Cooper, and Mister Sinister, who will serve as the series’ main antagonist. The show is set to deal with the theme of “why do we need the X-Men,” so it will be exciting to see how this idea is explored.
Lastly, the panel also confirmed that season 2 has already been confirmed. It seems Marvel is confident in the series and is excited to explore more of the world of X-Men ’97. For now though fans can look forward to the series debuting on Disney+ in Fall 2023.
