I remember watching a X-Men cartoon scene on TV in 90s. My cartoon senses say that it wasn't the popular X-Men: The Animated series. Here are the details I remember:

  • Extended hands were shown from first person view perspective (like Superman sees his hands while flying). The guy was flying from the space into the atmosphere.

  • He reached the roof where he found a mutant which I failed to recognize (I never encountered him again).

  • The mutant attacked him by very high wind blown from his mouth. There was probably two more attacks (by the mutant on the roof) which I don't remember. The mutant won.

  • Again something flying into the atmosphere from the space (the same way as the previous guy). This one turned out to be Phoenix.

  • The mutant on the roof attacked the same way (with the all three attacks), but nothing worked.

  • The Phoenix then blew the mutant off the roof by yellow fire.

Sorry for such a blurred short description. I was a kid then and I don't remember more details. Can you please identify this X-Men cartoon scene?


I haven't found mention of the rooftop battle in a transcript, but the Phoenix Saga in Season 3 of X-Men the Animated Series includes scenes on the roof of Cassidy Keep. Being the house of Banshee and Siren, I could see it likely they might be repelling someone by their sonic shouts, which could resemble wind coming out of their mouths. It would probably be somewhere in episodes 5-7 as Episode 7 apparently starts with them on the roof post-battle.

An image from Episode 5 does show the outstretched arm shot: Outstretched arms with red gloves, headed for a distant building on an isle

Gladiator comes in around the 13 minute mark of the episode.

  • I love the squeaky voices in the video, lol! Seems it might be a little compressed ... – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Apr 24 '15 at 18:13
  • @Thaddeus: Thanks for the link to Comics Alliance. That's where I got the image from. It made me realize that I'd forgotten to actually add the links to the article. – FuzzyBoots Apr 24 '15 at 18:30

    No worries, my friend. I want to be helpful as well. Don't want people to think I am only here for the reputation... – Thaddeus Howze Apr 24 '15 at 18:38
  • It was the Gladiator which attacked with wind blow. I mixed it all. He failed to smash Phoenix with the same attack. – 11.01.11 Apr 24 '15 at 19:50
