Fans Are Rooting for One Controversial ‘X Men ‘97 Romance They Spent the Entire Episode Attached to the Hip

‘X-Men ’97’ turned out to be a surprise hit for the Marvel Studios. Ever since the first episode was released the show had consistently high ratings, and fans praised it for its story, authenticity, and faithfulness to the original show and numerous improvements made to characters.

Having said that, the show wasn’t without controversies, especially when the creators of the show went public that Morph was non-binary, and in episode 3, the romance between Morph & Wolverine was teased.

As Madelyne Prior unleashed horrific nightmares upon the team, one of the most interesting sequences was the one that belonged to Morph. In his vision he can see Wolverine in the shower, but instead of averting his gaze or acting shocked he continues to take in the view and jokes with Wolverine saying: Needs some help with those hard to reach place?”

This scene quickly turns back into a nightmare with Wolverine replying: Always with the jokes eh Morph? As If I don’t know?”

Now following the release of Episode 7, those hints that there might be something more between Morph and Wolverine got even bolder. In X-Men ’97 episode 7, the team cornered Bolivar Trask in Madripoor. Fans noticed that Wolverine and Morph were inseparable and that Wolverine was mostly concerned for Morph’s well-being, which prompted numerous reactions on social media:

Even if this leads to nothing, at least we’ve gotten some good memes out of it. Personally, I think that the relationship between Wolverine & Jean Grey has better legs to stand on, but that’s just me. Have something to add? Let us know in the comments below!
