The wait is almost over. X-Men ‘97's three-part finale continues tomorrow when “Tolerance Is Extinction, Pt. 2” drops on Disney+.

Marvel’s animated series has continued the tales of the X-Men from the ‘90s cartoon, adding in timely relevance with great aplomb. Here’s a short tease of the next installment, featuring a fashion shake-up as well as more hints about the story, which finds humanity needing to trust in the X-Men once more. As tends to be the case, they may be the best hope the world has to survive.

To avoid early anxiety about what is actually going to happen in the next episode, let’s just geek out for a moment about the costumes here. We see Jean reach for her mask without her Dolly Parton-sized wig, Wolverine grab his red-tinged gloves, Storm put on her crown, and Cyclops don his visor. We see you, Marvel: using the old costumes for the main team from the 1980s Uncanny X-Men era. It’s just really cool to see the show pay homage to the comics and iconography in this way.
