Nightcrawler returns in X-Men 1997 clip

Spread MCU News

Nightcrawler appears in a clip from this week’s X-Men ’97 episode, “Remember It.” However, there may be a negative aspect to this situation. The video opens with Nightcrawler teleporting himself, Rogue, and Gambit to a Genoshan market and tells the latter two that “everything around us would not have been possible without the work of the X-Men,” much to Rogue’s delight. However, Gambit quickly notices the excessive price of apples, which are being offered for $10, which Nightcrawler ignores, with Rogue remarking, “Ignore him.” “Fly can’t help but spoil honey.” The video concludes with the unconvinced Gambit ominously responding, “Or maybe Gambit’s willing to ask questions no one else will…”

Similar to “Motendo/Lifedeath – Part 1,” the narrative for “Remember It” was made public, along with other episode synopses for the first season of X-Men ’97. According to the description, as Genosha prepares to join the UN, “selected members of the team head to the island nation to be honorees,” while a behind-the-scenes press gathering at the house “risks airing the X-Men’s dirty laundry.” Prior to this, ex-showrunner Beau DeMayo indicated how X-Men: The Animated Series’ plot will be continued in February on X-Men ’97. “Every design choice is actually a clue to the storylines we’re doing,” DeMayo explained at the time. “Nothing is arbitrary. The second purpose was to transport the X-Men back to a period when they were debating which parts of this they wanted to maintain. Was things really simpler back then, or were we simply more naive?”

In addition, tying into Nightcrawler’s thanks of the Children of the Atom, DeMayo promised that X-Men ’97 will “pick up about several months after Professor X left Earth after being shot by Henry Gyrich,” which had led to “this wave of increased sympathy towards mutants and understanding.” However, DeMayo stated that this causes the X-Men to wonder what the future holds for them. On a different note, producer Brad Winderbaum revealed that Season 3 is already in the works. “Just like the original series that was drafting so heavily from Chris Claremont’s work, we’re continuing that,” Winderbaum told me. “We’re looking at the late ’70s, mid ’70s, early ’90s era. We start to play outside of the Chris Claremont sandbox in the 1990s, almost reaching Grant Morrison. But it’s absolutely like the original series; it’s based on the storylines from the books.”
