X-Men ’97 Spoiled An Avengers Cameo That Could Be More Dangerous Than It Seems – TheShockNews


“X-Men: The Animated Series” had a lot on its plate during its run from 1992 to 1997. It took time and effort to develop each member of the team, their numerous enemies, and those on the sidelines who occasionally get swept up in the action. Still, the minds behind the program managed to toss in other Marvel icons from time to time. Among these individuals was Captain America (Lawrence Bayne), who gets a spotlight in the Season 5 episode titled “Old Soldiers” — an episode dedicated to his and Wolverine’s (Cal Dodd) World War II exploits.

The bulk of the episode is shown through flashbacks, where Logan recalls a mission he took part in way back in 1944. Cap joins him, even coming up against his greatest adversary and one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most unlikable villains, Red Skull (Cedric Smith), before he’s trapped in a vortex. According to other animated Marvel shows of the era set in the same universe, notably “Spider-Man: The Animated Series,” Cap eventually escapes the vortex to live in the modern era. Thus, it only makes sense that he’s fair game to appear in “X-Men ’97” and maybe lead the Avengers.

Time will tell what’s in store for the animated Captain America and the X-Men as “X-Men ’97” Season 1 continues.
