All the 90s Marvel fans must have missed their childhood days when all that one could hear was, “To me, my X-Men!” The highly anticipated revival of the best Marvel animated series ever made is finally on its way. The title “X-Men ’97” can be a bit confusing, but as it’s a revival of the beloved Saturday morning show that ended in 1997, it does seem appropriate. Being one of the earliest adaptations of world-famous X-Men characters, this animated series served as a foundation for the popularity of these characters before they got into adaptations for movies and television series. Here is a detailed discussion of everything we know about “X-Men ’97.”

What would happen in X-Men ’97?

Produced by Marvel Studios Animation, the series is written and created by Beau DeMayo for the streaming service Disney+. It is based on Marvel’s beloved X-men and would see the events after ‘X-Men: The Animated Series’ ended in 1997. DeMayo also said that the upcoming show would focus on a separate story from the currently running MCU’s multiverse. It will feature the events after the original series ended in the late 90s. Moreover, in this show, X-Men leaders will be shown struggling after the loss of Professor X.
