Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The fifth season of X-Men upheld the tradition established by Seasons Two, Three and Four by getting things started with a mulitpart episode. In Part One of "The Phalanx", Wolverine's fellow "Weapon X" victim Sabretooth apparently eturns to wreak havoc in the city. Catching up with Wolverine, the X-Men discover that their nemesis is actually the shape-shifting, terrifyingly voracious Phalanx. Only Beast and new mutant Warlock manage to escape when Phalanx springs a trap for the X-Men. Can the two remaining team members prevent the villain from literally swallowing up all mankind?
