X-amining X-Men: The Animated Series 3x02 - Patreon First!

"Out of the Past, Part 2"

Original Airdate
August 5th, 1994

Director: Larry Houston
Writer: Len Wein 

The monstrous Spirit Drinker emerges from the alien craft, and quickly drains the spirits of the Reavers. As Lady Deathstrike and the X-Men retreat, Jubilee sacrifices herself to save Gambit, her spirit consumed by the creature as well. Monitoring the situation from the X-Mansion, Professor X reaches out telepathically to call Beast, Cyclops and Jean Grey into action. In the Morlock Tunnels, Wolverine, Gambit and Deathstrike try to destroy the Spirit Drinker in order to free the souls it captured, but have little luck. Wolverine sends Gambit to the surface with Jubilee's body, after whic Lady Deathstrike is caught and drained as well. Just then, the rest of the X-Men arrive. As Beast and Xavier investigate the alien craft, the rest of the team manages to force the creature onto the third rail of the subway, where the electricity is enough to destroy the Spirit Drinker, restoring to their bodies the souls it had consumed. Back at the alien ship, Xavier is suddenly overcome by visions of alien beings and the world afire.
