X-amining X-Men: The Animated Series 3x13 - Patreon First!

"The Dark Phoenix"

Original Airdate
November 19, 1994

Larry Parr

In the wake of the Inner Circle club's defeat, Dark Phoenix attacks the X-Men, their battle spilling out into the nearby Central Park. She easily overpowers them all, but is unable to kill them. Instead, she flies off into space. Hungry for more energy, she devours a star, thereby destroying an uninhabited system, but her actions are observed by a Shi'ar research vessel, which informs Empress Lilandra of the new danger posed by the Phoenix. Back on Earth, Cyclops is aware of Dark Phoenix' actions through his psychic rapport with Jean, and declares that she's heading back home. Beast proceeds to build a mnemonic scrambler in the hopes of disabling Dark Phoenix' mind long enough for the X-Men to overpower her. Dark Phoenix returns to Earth and goes to Jean's childhood home, where the X-Men are waiting. Gambit manages to get the scrambler on Dark Phoenix, but she quickly burns out it. Just then Xavier enters Dark Phoenix' mind and with the help of Jean, is able to telepathically contain the Phoenix Force, restoring Jean's control of her body. The X-Men cautiously celebrate their victory, just as Lilandra and the Imperial Guard arrive, declaring their intent to arrest Jean.
