Default A hypothetical 1980s X-Men animated series episode guide

Obviously, had the 1989 "Pryde of the X-Men" pilot extended beyond that (and the Konami arcade game):
1x02: Escape the Savage Land!

Professor X and his X-Men are baffled to discover a tropical jungle in the middle of Antarctica. There they meet Ka-Zar, a brave warrior who helps them fight off a group of monsters that stalk our heroes. Things get even stranger when Magneto suddenly appears…

1x03: One Nation, Under Nefaria

Count Nefaria traps the entire city of Washington, D.C. beneath a giant dome that not even the military's forces can penetrate. Then he makes his team of X-Men imposters look responsible for the deed. Can the real X-Men clear their names and free the US capital before it’s too late?

1x04: Not by a Longshot

Cerebro detects a new mutant in the city. When the X-Men meet up with him, they find out he’s an amnesiac and doesn’t remember anything about his past, or his abilities. The team is in awe of his apparent streak of good luck, but so is Magneto…

1x05: And Your Enemies Closer

When a mad scientist named Dr. William Stryker kidnaps Professor X and wires him up to a machine that will use his psychic energy to destroy all mutants across the world, the team turns to the only person that’s powerful enough to stop it from happening: Magneto.

1x06: Island of Fear

After the X-Men answer a distress call from their friend Banshee in Scotland, they travel across the globe to his island laboratory and find it in shambles. A monstrous experiment of his is on the loose, and it lurks in the dark, watching the team…

1x07: Flight of the Dark Phoenix, Pt. 1

Jean Grey, a former member of the X-Men who disappeared after a fateful mission in outer space, finally returns to the mansion. Cyclops is beside himself. Is she what she seems? But while the rest of the team explain her history to Kitty, the White Queen plots to harness Jean's psychic powers for her own use. Meanwhile, a group of aliens appear on earth, searching for something called the Phoenix.

1x08: Flight of the Dark Phoenix, Pt 2

Despite the White Queen’s attempts to control Jean Grey’s mind, the powerful Phoenix entity won’t allow it. But everyone is shocked when the mysterious extraterrestrials put Jean Grey on cosmic trial for destroying their entire home planet! Can the X-Men stop this madness, or will the Phoenix powers be the end of Jean Grey?

1x09: The Weapon X-periment

When the Danger Room malfunctions during training, Kitty Pryde and Wolverine are stuck inside one of its simulations. While the rest of the team try to fix the problem in the control room, Wolverine tells the new recruit about how he joined the X-Men and the mysterious “Weapon X” project.

1x10: Meet The New Mutants

When the X-Men are captured and taken off into space by strange aliens known as the Brood, it’s up to Kitty Pryde and a group of misfit teenage students from Xavier’s School for the Gifted to save them. But the real question is: can they get along first?

1x11: The Spider-Man Adventure

Chaos ensues when Mysterio joins forces with Magneto to take over the Daily Bugle headquarters. The X-Men team up with Spider-Man and his amazing friends Firestar and Iceman once again to derail their plans, making Kitty feel like the odd one out.

1x12: The Uncanny Space Knight

When a race of alien witches known as Wraiths come to take over our planet, the team calls upon the help of their number one enemy - ROM the space knight. But Magneto seeks to reprogram him to serve his own agenda...

1x13: Back to the Present

Kitty keeps phasing in and out of the future, one that’s ruled by the Brotherhood of Mutants and their army of robot sentinels - a dark future where the X-Men have lost the war and are hunted like fugitives. Can she stop this timeline from coming to pass with the help of Wolverine and Professor X?

Season 2:

2x1 - Old Friends, Pt. 1 - The Iceman Cometh - Iceman and Beast have come from Los Angeles looking for the X-Men's help. The New Defenders have been soundly beaten, and only the X-Men can help them save one of their mutual former friends... Angel.

He's back, and he needs the X-Men's help in rescuing his girlfriend, former X-Men Lorna Dane, (Polaris) from a mutant called the Living Pharaoh. But can Havok keep his powers in check while fighting such a powerful foe?

2x9 - Secret Wars, Pt. 2 - The X-Men have made peace with the other heroes and Magneto, but now must face a cosmically powered Doctor Doom. Can Professor X and Cyclops follow Captain America's lead to victory?

2x12 - Mutant Massacre Pt. 2 - Survival - Decimated from their losses and needing recovery, the depleted ranks of the X-Men need to accept help from Thor to defeat these new opponents. Can the group ever recover?

2x13 - Rebirth - Psylocke, Longshot, Rogue, and Havok have joined Colossus, Storm, Dazzler, and Wolverine to make an all-new team of X-Men. But with Professor X with Lilandra recovering from his injuries, and Magneto being put in charge at the Mansion, will anything ever be the same for the team? Get ready for the stage to be set for an all new team next season, as the group goes global, starting with the Australian outback!

Nice, a lot of those seem very plausible for a late 80s X-Men series. I can almost imagine the pre-credits PSA where Storm or Dazzler warn on what to do about stranger danger or prejudice.

A revisit to the Spider-Friends would have been too good to see, especially in a slightly more serious series that hopefully had the production value of the pilot.

I probably love that Pryde pilot way more than I should. It sucks that the series wasn't greenlit but I'm glad that it did eventually lead to the 92 series being sold.

Anyways, here's a link to some visuals to help visualize what could have been. This is all production art.

Really fun. Reminds me of how much I want an X-men animated series I haven't seen a million times.
