In the latest thrilling installment of X-Men ’97, fans are taken on a nostalgic journey filled with homages to classic X-Men stories and exciting Easter eggs that pay tribute to the rich history of the mutant universe. One of the standout moments is Jubilee’s immersive video game experience, which captures the essence of classic arcade-style gameplay and adds a fun and interactive element to the storytelling.

Episode 4 plays as sort of a double story with the first half being about Mojo, an alien slaver that kidnaps some of the X-Men to be part of his “shows” and the second half being a more serious toned part of the episode called Life/death. Fans were quick to jump on how they felt about this.

The introduction of Mojo, a character who quickly captured the attention of viewers with her unique powers and compelling backstory, was part of the original series of Aliens named “Spineless Ones”.

Fans took to Twitter and Reddit to share their excitement about Mojo’s appearance.

Fans delighted in seeing Jubilee take on virtual challenges and showcase her mutant powers in a new and exciting way, drawing parallels to her iconic role as the youthful and energetic member of the X-Men team. And some say that was one of the most entertaining parts of the episode.

But not all fans liked the idea of a 2 in 1 story, some fans thought each story deserved its own episode.

Fortunately some fans actually enjoyed the double story and claimed that both were delightful watches and additions to season 1 of the series so far.

One of the standout elements of Episode 4 was that Magneto seemed to be a bit suspicious, at least fans seemed to be concerned with his demeanor so far.

The episode also shines with a plethora of Easter eggs that reference classic X-Men stories,

One of the easter eggs was the mention and introduction of storms arch villain, The Adversary. Longtime fans of the comics noticed and couldn’t help but tweet about it on social media.

A special moment fans are raving about on social media is at the end of the first story, Jubilee and Sunspot share a firework worthy kiss.

On social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok, fan artists showcased their talents by creating stunning art inspired by Episode 4, capturing memorable moments and character interactions with vibrant colors and dynamic compositions. These artistic tributes served as a testament to the enduring impact of the X-Men animated series and its ability to inspire creativity and passion among fans of all ages.

As fans eagerly await the next installment of X-Men ’97, the buzz surrounding Episode 4 continues to reverberate through the online fandom, with debates, theories, and fan works keeping the excitement alive. But another thing that people love is seeing real life references in shows.

The motendo system mentioned in Episode 4 by Mojo was based on Super Nintendo and an actual game called X-men Mutant Apocalypse.

Whether it’s discussing Motendo, Jubilee’s character development, analyzing the Sentinels’ tactics, or simply sharing their love for the X-Men universe, fans remain deeply invested in the world of mutants and the captivating stories that continue to unfold in this iconic animated series.

In conclusion, Episode 4 of X-Men ’97 has once again demonstrated the enduring appeal of the X-Men franchise and its ability to captivate audiences old and new.
