Season 1 of X-Men '97 wrapped up on Disney+ yesterday and showrunner Beau DeMayo has once again shared some insights into the episode - titled "Tolerance Is Extinction - Part 3" - on X.

He started by confirming what we've long suspected since the series began: Morph does indeed have romantic feelings for Wolverine. That was hinted at in a shower scene earlier in the season, and DeMayo has revealed the non-binary mutant's feelings are indeed one-sided. 

This adds new context to the scene in the finale when Morph transforms into Jean Grey and tells Logan she loves him. Now, we know that what initially seemed like the mutant's way of comforting his dying friend was, in fact, a declaration of love...

DeMayo also credited the team who worked on X-Men '97 for faithfully recreating iconic comic book panels and strongly hinted that Professor X and Magneto's psyches merging to become Onslaught was part of his long-term plan for the show.

Finally, the showrunner - who parted ways with Marvel Studios after season 1 wrapped - addressed Gambit's death, revealing it was simply "the first act" of his and Rogue's story.

In the closing moments of "Tolerance Is Extinction - Part 3," we saw Apocalypse find one of Remy's charred playing cards in the ruins of Genosha, suggesting he'll be resurrected as one of the villain's Four Horsemen: Death. 

DeMayo also confirmed that the missing X-Men (Wolverine, Morph, Storm, Jubilee, and Sunspot) are in either 3000 B.C. or 3960 A.D. 

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.

All episodes of X-Men '97 are now streaming on Disney+.
