The latest episode of X-Men '97 was another jaw-dropping effort that featured heaps of surprises.

You can read our recap of "Tolerance Is Extinction" by clicking here. In the meantime, Head Writer Beau DeMayo (who was fired by Marvel Studios for reasons which still aren't clear) has taken to X to share heaps of insights into this latest instalment. 

He started by addressing a few key moments, including who that mysterious woman was speaking to Bastion and some of the unique imagery included in the episode...including a big Easter Egg.

DeMayo weighed in on whether Tilby was willingly working against the X-Men, confirming that while she didn't want to become a Prime Sentinal, the journalist has been gathering intel on the team this entire time. 

He also elaborated on X-Men '97's place in the MCU's Multiverse. 

Later, the showrunner confirmed that the Spider-Man who appears is indeed the Peter Parker who took centre stage in Spider-Man: The Animated Series. On a less happy note, DeMayo confirmed both Gambit and Dazzler are very much dead following the attack on Genosha.

Finally, DeMayo chimed in to explain why he recommended a couple of specific X-Men: The Animated Series episodes before X-Men '97's three-part finale. It turns out today wasn't the first time we've met Bastion's parents! 

X-Men '97 revisits the iconic era of the 1990s as The X-Men, a band of mutants who use their uncanny gifts to protect a world that hates and fears them, are challenged like never before, forced to face a dangerous and unexpected new future.

Eight episodes of X-Men '97 are now streaming on Disney+ with new instalments following weekly.
