Beast and Forge would make an unlikely alliance with Magneto and Mister Sinister to stop the Phalanx invasion of Earth. Omega Red would be thawed out to salvage a toxic nuclear submarine but has his own plans for the warheads. Graydon Creed Jr. and the Friends of Humanity would return to reunite Nightcrawler with his real mother. Storm would save an alien planet and become engaged to their ruler, only to learn what kind of person he really is. Fabian Cortez would try to resurrect the dreaded Apocalypse. Wolverine would remember the time he and Captain America fought the Red Skull. Mister Sinister's origins would be revealed. The worst would come with Henry Peter Gyrich attacks and seriously injures Charles Xavier. All would seem lost until Lilandra and the Shi'Ar offer their assistance. But that would mean the loss of the X-Men's beloved leader.


"No Mutant Is An Island" was originally intended to air in Season Three after "The Phoenix Saga" and before "Savage Land, Strange Heart." However, due to animation problems it was delayed two years while a different company animated it again from scratch.

The "Beyond Good And Evil" story arc was originally meant to be the ending of the series. However, Fox bought a few more episodes at the last minute. The original animation studio, Graz Entertainment, went bankrupt. The final six episodes feature a different animation style, the work being done by Saban.
