What To Expect From X-Men ’97 Episode 7?

X-Men ’97 Episode 7 is named Bright Eyes and the title is a reference to a dialogue said to Cable in an episode of X-Men: The Animated Series. It might show the reunion of Storm and Professor X with the members of X-Men. This should happen to defeat the enemies and avenge the killings of Genosha.
