X Men 97 Voice Actor Discusses Morph Being Non Binary and Fan Backlash

Since ‘X-Men ’97’ teased Spider-Man’s appearance from the original series, fans have been eager for him to reunite with Mary Jane, and the creators made it happen.

In the exciting finale of ‘X-Men ’97’, Peter Parker and Mary Jane finally found each other again. The episode featured many iconic cameos, including several Avengers, but one stood out. Showrunner Beau DeMayo confirmed its authenticity and hinted at the potential for another beloved animated series from the same era to be recreated.

The season finale titled “Tolerance Is Extinction, Pt. 3” brought a captivating storyline. Professor X intervened, healing Magneto and saving humanity by redirecting Asteroid M. A cameo by Peter Parker and Mary Jane, reminiscent of their appearance in the 1994-1998 Spider-Man animated series, delighted fans. DeMayo confirmed their reunion on social media, addressing a narrative gap from the original series where Peter and MJ never reconnected.

This nod to the original show isn’t just an Easter egg for fans; it could hint at future developments. There’s been talk of Marvel Studios focusing more on animated projects, sparking rumors of a revival of the original Spider-Man Animated series.

It’s now confirmed that the two shows share the same universe. Even if the original show doesn’t return, we can appreciate the showrunners for wrapping up Peter’s storyline. Got something to share? Drop it in the comments!
