X-amining X-Men: The Animated Series 3x08 - Patreon First!

"Savage Land, Strange Hearts Part 1"

Original Airdate
September 10, 1994

Writers: Robert Skir, Marty Isenberg

In the Savage Land, Sauron and his forces are overwhelmed by Ka-Zar and his rebellion. Sauron is rescued by Zaladane, a priestess of Garokk, a religious deity represented throughout the Savage Land via a series of stone heads. Zaladane tells Sauron to leave the Savage Land in order to find additional mutants on which to feed. He flies an old jet of Magneto's to New York, transforming into the human Karl Lykos in the process. Later, Lykos bumps into a group of X-Men visiting New York City, and absorbs Wolverine's energy, not realizing he's a mutant. The energy transforms him back into Sauron. Rogue and Storm attack Sauron in the air. Sauron hypnotizes Rogue and turns her against the X-Men, allowing him to escape to the Savage Land with Storm. The X-Men follow him, and are reunited with Ka-Zar. Meanwhile, Sauron unleashes Storm's dark side, then attack Ka-Zar and the X-Men. They manage to weaken Sauron such that he transforms  back into Lykos, at which point Garokk tells Zaladane to unleash Storm, who angrily attacks the X-Men.
