The "Ahab" of the proceedings is Archangel, who has embarked upon an obsessive mission to destroy the immortal mutant Apocalypse. Rogue joins Archangel in his quest, while the other X-Men pursue an alternate strategy with the same goal. Alas, Archangel's stubborn single-mindedness could end up destroying everyone, hero and villain alike. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Savage Land, Strange Heart, Part One In the first half of the two-part X-Men adventure "Savage Land, Strange Heart," we are introduced to the half-human, half-pterodactyl Sauron. Under the spell of high priestess Zaladane, Sauron kidnaps Storm and bundles her off to Savage Land. Without the other X-Men to control her, Storm prepares to unleash the full fury of her energy to prevent Zaladane from sapping her life forces. Meanwhile, Storm's colleagues have plenty of trouble on their own -- namely, a fearsome dinosaur-like creature called The Garokk. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Savage Land, Strange Heart, Part Two In the second half of the two-part X-Men adventure "Savage Land, Strange Heart," Storm has unleashed the full force of her inner powers -- and she truly enjoys the rush! But there are consequences to her euphoria: Her unbridled strength has revitalized the deadly "stone spirit" Garokk. Now he threatens to increase his power by fusing with the volcanic forces of Savage Island. The X-Men, assisted by the Fall People, must put an end to Garokk's reign of terror. But this means that they must also do battle against their former comrade Storm, thereby setting the stage for one of the series' customary Crises of Loyalty. "Savage Land, Strange Heart" was originally broadcast during X-Men's 1994-95 season. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Dark Phoenix "Dark Phoenix" was an appropriate title for the third chapter of X-Men's "Dark Phoenix" saga. The titular Phoenix has threatened to destroy the X-Men if they force him to give up possession of Jean Grey. He forces Jean to fly to the D'har Star System for the purpose of regenerating her strength. But the journey ends disastrously when an out-of-control Jean destroys the entire system. Reluctantly, the X-Men align themselves with Shi'ar empress Lilandre, who has declared that, in her present state, Jean must be liquidated for the good of the Universe. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Cold Comfort This episode marked the return of former X-Man Bobby Drake, a.k.a. the freeze-inducing Iceman (who'd previously popped up as a regular on another Marvel cartoon series, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. The downside is that Iceman has apparently gone bad, breaking into a secret government installation and wreaking all sorts of havoc. Rescued from the authorities, he is brought to Professor X to explain himself -- but only the Beast, a.k.a. Dr. McCoy, knows the real motivation for his colleague's alleged crime. "Cold Comfort" was originally broadcast during X-Men's 1994-95 season. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide X-Men: Weapon X, Lies and Videotape This final episode of X-Men's 1994-95 season begins as Wolverine is mysteriously unhinged by the information imparted in a postcard. Beast wants to know why his friend has gone off the deep end, so he takes Wolverine to the Weapon X lab where he was first transformed into a mutant. Also converging on the lab are Sabretooth, Maverick and Silver Fox, who likewise had been test subjects
