History:
(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Beyond Good and Evil - Part II" - BTS) - Apocalypse of the ravaged future of Earth-13393 had obtained access to the Axis of Time and prepared to kidnap the world's most powerful psychics of Earth-92131 and use their simultaneous death to unleash sufficient psychic energy to stop time and break the elemental balance between good and evil. As all of existence would end except for the actuality inside the Axis of Time, Apocalypse could recreate the universe in his own image.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Beyond Good and Evil - Part II" - BTS) - Karma was captured by Apocalypse's lackeys and placed in a glass-like canister amidst other imprisoned psychics.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Beyond Good and Evil - Part II") - Karma was seen, imprisoned alongside Mesmero, Psylocke, Oracle and the X-Man Jean Grey when Mystique and Magneto discussed the loss of Sabretooth at the hands of the X-Men. Karma and the others overheard Apocalypse promising to resurrect Magneto's deceased wife after which Mister Sinister arrived with another psychic, Gamesmaster.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Beyond Good and Evil - Part III") - Karma was seen, imprisoned between Mesmero and Gamesmaster's canisters, when Apocalypse summoned Mystique to his side. Not long after, Apocalypse successfully tricked the X-Men after which he acquired the last of the psychics, Charles Xavier.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Beyond Good and Evil - Part IV") - Ready to put his plan in motion, Apocalypse activated the process which caused the psychics, still stuck in the canister, were forced to float, circling the Axis of Time. Apocalypse, however, was unaware that time-traveler Bishop was already near the Axis, guided by Immortus, posing as "Bender" the crazy caretaker of the timelines.

   Unbeknownst to the psychics, Magneto and Mystique turned on Apocalypse upon learning his true plan and freed the X-Man Wolverine who'd also been imprisoned inside the Axis. Shortly thereafter, Cable arrived as well just as the psychics' combined power began to affect the timelines. In the end it was Bishop who decided to get involved and shot one of the canisters, freeing Psylocke, who immediately ordered the time-lost Bishop to continue shooting at the remaining canisters. When several other psychics were released, Apocalypse knew he was in danger of failing. He sent his Horsemen to kill Bishop and Psylocke, but they failed. When they returned to the Axis of Time, the strain of the events caused the structure to collapse. Apocalypse and his Horsemen fought Magneto, Wolverine and Cable until the freed Karma and other psychics joined their powers to stop Apocalypse. With their combined powers, the psychics removed Apocalypse and all others from the Axis of Time. Since his Lazarus chamber had been destroyed in the past, Apocalypse simply ceased to exist in the present. Karma and the freed psychics presumably returned to their proper homes.

"Beyond Good and Evil" was intended to be the series finale and was originally going to end with the X-Men disbanding after the final conflict with Apocalypse. However, the series was given a last minute reprise by Fox when they ordered six more episodes to close out the season. To save money, Saban produced the final episodes of the series in-house rather than calling on Graz Entertainment which had done all of the series. Instead, Saban hired a studio in the Philippines (simply called the Philippine Animation Studio, which also worked on the second season of the 1994 Fantastic Four series) which explains why these episodes had a different animation style.

The psychics captured by Apocalypse were: Gamesmaster, Gremlin, Jean Grey, Karma, Mastermind, Mesmero, Moondragon, Oracle, Professor X, Psylocke, Revanche, Shadow King, Stryfe, Rachel Summers, Typhoid Mary, the White Queen and two unidentified characters who appear be a Guardian of the Universe from DC's Green Lantern and the midget Gwildor from He-Man. Because they are unidentified they are not listed under Karma's affiliations but will receive sub-profiles in the future profile of Apocalypse of Earth-13393. We've listed Magneto, Mister Sinister, Mystique, Sabretooth under her enemies as they were Apocalypse's loyal servants charged with kidnapping the psychics, Karma would've considered them her enemies.
