X-Men (also known as X-Men: The Animated Series) is an animated superhero television series that premiered on the Fox Kids Network in the United States on October 31, 1992.
X-Men was Marvel Comics' second attempt at an animated X-Men TV series, following the failure of the pilot, X-Men: Pryde of the X-Men.
As indicated by variety X-Men '97, a Marvel Studios-produced revival, is set to be released on Disney+ in 2023.
What Could Happen in the X-men ’97 Plot?
We don't know what will happen in X-Men '97, but we do know it's a direct sequel to the ‘92 series.
This means we'll find out what happened after the mutants and Magneto said their goodbyes to Professor Xavier.
The humble leader avoided death by travelling to the planet Shi'Ar with Lilandra, leaving everyone who knew and loved him to wonder if he'd ever return.
Yes, that cartoon ended like The Simpsons' Poochie gag. The good thing about such an odd anti-climax is that it left plenty of loose ends for the writers to pick up on.

X-Men: The Animated Series was many millennials' first introduction to Marvel characters and storytelling. The show's catchy theme song and cool powers captured our attention, and it lasted five seasons. And they'll be back next year with new episodes on Disney+.

Magneto, on the other hand, will be leading them this time. Other mutants will, of course, appear. Time travellers Cable and Bishop, as well as Morph and the teleporting mutant Nightcrawler, have been announced.
The heroes will face off against the Hellfire Club, named after the Stranger Things D&D crew, which includes Emma Frost and Sebastian Shaw. Mr Sinster will also be present. The series will have the same general appearance as the original series, but with more modern animation.
