Wolverine and the X-Men (2008)
Aired by Nicktoons in the United States, “Wolverine and the X-Men” focuses on the X-Men without Professor Xavier but led by Wolverine.Kari Wahlgren voices Emma Frost in “Wolverine and the X-Men.”
Emma Frost demands to be recruited by Wolverine to help find Professor Xavier because she is the only available telepath to use cerebra. She becomes romantically interested in Cyclops, but he is too stressed over the missing Jean to notice Emma’s interest.
The season finale reveals Emma was working for the Hellfire Club, who hoped to unleash the Phoenix to gain power. She was responsible for the missing Jean Grey because she and the Stepford Cuckoos miscalculated their telepathy. When the Hellfire Club releases the Phoenix Force from Jean Grey, it heads to the city to unleash mass destruction. But Emma feels guilty enough for causing troubles in the X-Men, so she transforms to diamond form and successfully contains the Phoenix within her diamond shell, but it shatters. She is presumably dead after that.
The show was not renewed for a second season to find out Emma’s fate, but Associate Producer Joshua Fine said in an interview that she would have placed her consciousness into Jean for a return in season 2.
Director: Steven E. Gordon
Writer: Greg Johnson
Summary: The story begins when an explosive event destroys the X-Mansion. After the destruction, Jean Grey is suddenly missing, and Professor Xavier is missing as well because he is stuck in the future. Although the mansion is destroyed, the Professor encourages the X-Men to continue with their lives because the future needs them. Cyclops is depressed over the loss of Jean Grey, so Wolverine leads the X-Men to prevent the apocalyptic future while fighting villains such as Magneto and the Brotherhood.
