X-amining X-Men: The Animated Series 3x07 - Patreon First!

 "The Phoenix Saga Part Five: Child of Light"

Original Airdate
September 9th, 1994

Writer: Mark Edward Edens 

With the mad Shi'ar Emperor D'Ken in control of the M'Kraan Crystal, Phoenix explains how he is using the power to create a new universe inside the crystal, one which will soon draw in all existence. Phoenix sends the X-Men and Starjammers away and tries to stop D'Ken, but gets pulled into the crystal, along with everyone in the vicinity. As the effects of D'Ken's actions begin to be felt on Earth, the X-Men, Starjammers, and Imperial Guard try to stop D'Ken inside the crystal, but he is in full control of the environment. Realizing she can't stop him from inside, Phoenix brings everyone out of the crystal. Phoenix explains that the Phoenix Force chose Jean as a host because her powers allowed it to connect with the crystal, and she draws on the emotional strength of the X-Men to create a lattice around the crystal, containing D'Ken and its harmful energies inside. This ends the immediate threat, but Phoenix declares that to prevent anyone else from harnessing the power of the crystal, she must sacrifice herself to bury the crystal inside Earth's sun where no one can reach it. After bidding a tearful goodbye to the X-Men, Phoenix flies into the heart of the sun. When the X-Men return to Earth, Cyclops is nevertheless despondent over the loss of the woman he loves, but Professor X believes Phoenix will rise again.
