X-Men '97 episode 6's ending promises a thrilling conclusion to season 1, by focusing on two major mutants that will surprise and excite audiences. Given what transpired in X-Men '97 episode 5's tragic ending, many were curious how episode 6 would pick up the pieces. As was hinted by X-Men '97 episode 6's title, "Lifedeath - Part 2," the story instead switched to the continued efforts of Ororo Munroe/Storm. The many deaths of X-Men '97 episode 5 took somewhat of a backseat in favor of Storm attempting to recover her mutant abilities.
In X-Men '97 episode 2, Storm was shot by a power-dampening bullet by the X-Cutioner, leading her on a quest to meet Forge. X-Men '97 episode 4 detailed Forge and Storm's burgeoning romance, failed attempts to restore the latter's power and the emergence of a demonic villain known as The Adversary. Many assumed this storyline would continue into the remainder of season 1 and even X-Men '97 season 2's story. However, X-Men '97 episode 6's ending delivered big on Storm's story and included the return of another crucial mutant that promises an exciting culmination to season 1.

What Was Professor X’s Vision About In X-Men ’97 Episode 6’s Ending? Professor X's lesson takes a dark turn as he is warned of episode 5's tragic proceedings. Close Initially, Charles Xavier's lesson begins to change the minds of the Shi'ar somewhat. Charles explains that their barbaric, tyrannical ways are not the only method to securing an empire and that coexistence - no matter how messy it may be - can also work. However, the lesson quickly takes a grim turn as Charles receives a psychic vision warning him of the attack on Genosha in X-Men '97 episode 6's ending.
This vision was Charles' own psychic abilities warning him of what has transpired on Earth.
The globe in the corner of Charles' psychic classroom bursts into flame, while the students before him devolve into skeletons. The pain Charles feels is only heightened in X-Men '97 episode 6's ending after this when a giant figure of Gambit appears before turning into a skeleton like the others. As alluded to, this vision was Charles' own psychic abilities warning him of what has transpired on Earth. Charles quickly realizes what he initially saw as the good-natured gala in which his children - the X-Men - were dancing, drinking, and spreading love has spiraled into darkness, death, and destruction.
The lack of a Magneto skeleton hints that he may still be alive after X-Men '97 episode 5's ending, linking to popular theories.

Close On the other side of X-Men '97 episode 6's story was Storm, who struggled to save Forge's life after the latter was bitten and infected by The Adversary. Storm is sent into a nearby cave to retrieve a cactus, the juice of which will heal Forge's wounds. Unfortunately for Storm, The Adversary haunts her every step in X-Men '97 episode 6's ending.
This helps Storm realize that her powers being lost was not solely due to the X-Cutioner's weapon, but also a mental block caused by her own lie that being human could be tempting.
While The Adversary seems like a villain in X-Men '97, the demonic being is actually the catalyst needed to return Storm's powers. The Adversary turns out to be a manifestation of Storm's fears and doubts, stemming from the conversation with Jean earlier in X-Men '97 season 1. In X-Men '97 episode 2, Storm tells Jean that she sometimes wonders what it would be like to be human and calls the possibility a "tempting daydream." In X-Men '97 episode 6's ending, The Adversary says these words to Storm.
This helps Storm realize that her powers being lost was not solely due to the X-Cutioner's weapon, but also a mental block caused by her own lie that being human could be tempting. Storm states that she believed this lie, before truly embracing her powers and reigniting her mutant abilities. Therefore, X-Men '97 episode 6's ending reveals that Forge's attempts to remove the X-Cutioner's curse on Storm succeeded in episode 4 and that it was only Storm's recognition of her reality that could restore her Omega-level powers completely.
The return of Storm's powers leads to a flight sequence that mimics other superhero stories such as Man of Steel.
What Was The Adversary In X-Men ’97? The Adversary has slightly different origins in X-Men '97 than it does in the comics. Custom Image made by Debanjana Chowdhury While X-Men '97 episode 6's ending confirms that The Adversary was a manifestation of Storm and Forge's combined fears and doubts, it confirms a major change from the villain in Marvel Comics. In the comics, The Adversary stemmed from Forge's Cheyenne roots. In the comics, Forge is trained in Cheyenne magic by a shaman called Naze. Beings like The Adversary are mortal enemies of the Cheyenne shaman and are simply malevolent beings who wish to destroy the universe.
In the comics, The Adversary's battle with Storm is brought about by Forge and Naze's magic powers and is defeated in a much more long-winded, complex way that involves the X-Men sacrificing themselves only to be reborn later. Given this story, it becomes clear that X-Men '97 took a much different route with The Adversary. Instead, The Adversary is a dark manifestation, one that is defeated when Storm accepts her role as a powerful mutant and an X-Man.

In X-Men '97 episode 6's ending, the villain behind the attack is revealed as none other than Mister Sinister.
Related X-Men '97 Just Made Gambit & Magneto's Deaths Worse X-Men '97 episode 6 finds a creative way to remind viewers of Gambit and Magneto's tragic fate, calling attention to their absence in the show.
