“I’d keep my eyes peeled”: Beau DeMayo Teases X-Men ‘97 Bringing Back One of the Strongest Mutants in Existence That the MCU is Too Afraid to Admit

The head writer of the show dropped a hint as to whether Wanda would make an appearance in the show.

X-Men ’97 has entered its final leg of episodes, igniting a war between mutants and human-sentinel hybrids created by Bastion. As the war kicks into high gear, fans are expecting to see a slew of omega-level and beyond-omega-level mutants enter the fray, along with other heroes who are sympathetic to the mutant cause.

The war is expected to be on a massive scale, given the number of human-sentinel hybrids that Bastion has created in secret. However, the Mutants could have some of their own heavy hitters join the fray to fight for the mutant extinction, and Beau DeMayo, the creator and head writer on the show, could have hinted at one particular mutant that fans cannot wait to see.

The last three episodes of X-Men ’97 are headed towards a major conflict in the series, with the reveal of the fact that Magneto is still alive and his escape from Bastion’s research facility, it is safe to say that the war for mutant existence has begun. Even Charles Xavier, who has been largely absent in the season, has returned from the Shi’ar Empire, calling his X-Men to him to put an end to the war (or perhaps to fight in it).

However, other superheroes could also join the fight, and fans really want to see one mutant who has been sidelined by the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Wanda Maximoff. Series creator Beau DeMayo was quick to fan the rumors when he responded to whether Wanda could show up in the final three episodes of X-Men ’97:

This could just mean that the mutant will make a small cameo, or could have a major part to play in the war that has begun. With Bastion’s involvement with characters like Doctor Doom, and Baron Zemo, it is possible that the Avengers and Fantastic Four could show up, with Wanda appearing as a member of the former.

X-Men’ 97 could have a finale that parallels Avengers: Endgame

The latest episode of X-Men ’97 revealed that Bastion’s team-up with Mister Sinister was supported by other factions in the Marvel Universe, namely Baron Zemo and Doctor Doom. There was also an unnamed woman who was part of the conference, who remains largely unidentified.

This would mean that the war against the mutants has more stakeholders than what was initially anticipated, which could get other, non-mutant heroes involved in the war, such as Black Panther, Captain America, and Doctor Strange.

This could lead to a final battle that is very reminiscent of Avengers: Endgame, as the show brings together heroic factions from across the Marvel Universe to fight a global threat like Bastion. Doctor Doom and Baron Zemo could bring their armies and allies into the war as well, which could set off a conflict at a scale that this version of the Marvel world has yet to see.
