Controversy Erupts as Geeks + Gamers and Tyrone Magnus Criticize “X-Men 97” for Introducing Non-Binary Morph

Fan Outrage and Defense

Popular YouTubers, including Geeks + Gamers and Tyrone Magnus, have expressed anger over the portrayal of the character Morph as non-binary in the upcoming Disney+ series “X-Men 97.”

However, fans defending the decision argue that critics are missing the franchise’s historical context as an allegory for social issues like the Civil Rights Movement.

Insight from Showrunner

Showrunner Beau DeMayo revealed to Empire Magazine that “X-Men 97” will focus on the X-Men grappling with unexpected challenges in the future.

He explained that Morph’s portrayal as non-binary offers a lighter take on the character and emphasizes an intriguing buddy relationship with Wolverine, a fan favorite.

Revival and Character Reinterpretation

Marvel Studios Animation’s decision to revive “X-Men: The Animated Series” with the upcoming Disney+ series “X-Men 97” has sparked controversy due to the reinterpretation of Morph’s character as non-binary.

Despite having been portrayed as a stereotypically male character in previous comics and series, Morph’s new identity adds depth to the storyline.

Character History and Evolution

Morph, originally introduced as Changeling in the X-Men Adventures #1 comic in 1992, underwent a transformation from an evil nemesis to an ally of the X-Men.

Despite being killed in the pilot episode of “X-Men: The Animated Series,” his character reappeared with a new identity.

However, it was revealed that his revival came with the addition of an evil personality implanted by Mr. Sinister, adding complexity to his storyline.
