X-amining X-Men: The Animated Series 3x05 - Patreon First!

"Cry of the Banshee"

Original Airdate
September 7th 1994

Writer: Michael Edens

Moira and Banshee are drawn to the commotion in Xaver's room, where he and Lilandra are battling Juggernaut. They gain the upper hand until Juggernaut's partner Black Tom enters the fray, saying they were hired to kidnap Lilandra. Xavier is thrown out the window as the pair make off with Lilandra, but Banshee uses his mutant sonic cry to rescue Xavier. Moira and Banshee remain dubious that Lilandra is real, but Xavier calls out to the X-Men, who reluctantly leave Jean's bedside for Muir Island. Meanwhile, Black Tom and Juggernaut meet with their client, Erik the Red, but Lilandra's psychic bond with Xavier allows the X-Men to learn where they are: Banshee's ancestral home. The X-Men travel to Cassidy Keep and battle Black Tom, Juggernaut, and Erik the Red, but their battle is disrupted by the arrival of the powerful Gladiator, leader of the Shi'ar Emperor D'Ken's Praetorian Guard. He easily tosses Juggernaut aside and claims Lilandra for his Emperor, but Phoenix awakens and quickly flies to Ireland, where she tosses Gladiator into space. Lilandra is saved, for now, but D'Ken himself has just arrived to the planet.
