X-Men '97's three-part finale is now more than half complete, with episode 9, Tolerance Is Extinction Part 2, kicking off the battle between mutants and Bastion.


The latest instalment, which is available to watch now on Disney Plus, also ended on a shocking cliffhanger, paving the way for the last chapter of the finale.

X-Men '97 has been a huge hit with fans and critics, telling bold new stories with refreshed visuals, but still sticking to the spirit of the original animated series.

It also arrives mere months before MCU film Deadpool & Wolverine comes to the big screen, meaning fans of Marvel's mutants are truly being spoilt this year.
