The fifth episode of Marvel Studios' animated revival series, X-Men '97, "Remember It," culminated with a devastating Wild Sentinel attack on the mutant nation of Genosha, resulting in the apparent death of two main characters.

Misdirects and fake-outs are par for the course when it comes to comic book adaptations, so we weren't certain that Gambit wasn't still clinging on to life until this week's episode, "Bright Eyes," which made it very clear that Remy LeBeau - at least for the time being - really is dead.

With (at least) two time-travellers on hand in Bishop and Cable, there's always a chance Gambit will return before the end of the season, but former showrunner Beau DeMayo has indicated that the character will not be resurrected any time soon.

Now, Marvel Studios has commemorated the fallen hero with some awesome new artwork from Chris Graf, Sylvia Filcak-Blackwolf, Ben Hong, and Amelia Vidal.

Spoilers for this week's episode follow.

While it looks like Gambit will be staying six-feet under for the foreseeable future, "Bright Eyes" revealed that Magneto actually survived the mutant massacre, and is now a prisoner of the incredibly powerful villain known as Bastion. What does this "Super Sentinel" have in store for the Master of Magnetism?

Be sure to tune in to Disney+ for next week's episode, which begins the 3-part season finale, "Tolerance is Extinction."

X-Men '97's voice cast includes Ray Chase as Cyclops, Jennifer Hale as Jean Grey, Alison Sealy-Smith as Storm, Cal Dodd as Wolverine, JP Karliak as Morph, Lenore Zann as Rogue, George Buza as Beast, AJ LoCascio as Gambit, Holly Chou as Jubilee, Isaac Robinson-Smith as Bishop, Matthew Waterson as Magneto and Adrian Hough as Nightcrawler.

Beau DeMayo, who was recently fired, serves as head writer, while episodes are directed by Jake Castorena, Chase Conley and Emi Yonemura. Brad Winderbaum, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and DeMayo executive produce.
