Similar to how X-Men: The Animated Series got molded into being X-Men ‘97 today, fans are hoping that Marvel wakes up and capitalizes on the opportunity to make Spider-Man ‘98 inspired by the events of Spider-Man: The Animated Series. The web-slinging hero was seen in the most recent episode of X-Men ‘97 when Magneto sends the entire Manhattan into utter chaos by disrupting the power signals.

This is not the first character to appear on the show thus, bridging the gap between X-Men and the MCU. Earlier, we saw General Ross appear in an episode, who we know as a villain from the Hulk storyline. Doctor Doom and Baron Zemo have also been spotted in the animated show X-Men ‘97. However, Spider-Man’s appearance has sparked the most uproar as fans are requesting Marvel to revive the character’s standalone animated series too.

This is mostly because the Spider-Man who made a cameo was none other than the one who headlined the 1994 animated series. Therefore, this opens up the doors for the MCU to make another animated universe with all the superheroes from comics and their respective villains. The success of X-Men ‘97 has certainly helped the cause for animated series and how important they can be in consolidating the fandoms.
