    Not exactly the same but didn't they have the same powers?

    I mean Morph in AOA is differnet from the cartoon but I always figured they named him Morph to refer to the cartoon one.

    Which is why Marrow is way better. Same powers, 20 times more interesting.

    The reason I didn't like the fact that they created Spyke is because:
    a) If they wanted someone who could shoot bones out of their skin, they should've just used Marrow
    b) If they wanted another black character, they could've used Bishop.

    On top of that, he was an annoying brat who looked like Dennis Rodman's less masculine love-child.

    Neither are great arguments. I hated Spyke, but Marrow wouldn't have fit in at Xavier's school, and neither would Bishop. They needed characters that could work with the concept.

    Why wouldn't Marrow or Bishop have worked? This show clearly wasn't beyond the changing and tweaking of origins & personalities.

    And even if Marrow or Bishop wouldn't have 'worked' with the mix, Spyke hardly felt in place.

    Well, the boosted Spyke's powers eventually.

    His mutation eventually covered him in a bony layer across his shoulders and head, which is why he went down with the Morlocks. He's essentially become one of them looks wise. He also had the ability to charge or heat up his spikes, so when he threw them they would cause explosions.

    In other words, they realized that nobody liked Spyke, so they tried giving him new powers, and ended up writing him out of the final season by having him join the Morlocks. At that point, his role had already been reduced to nothing (he hadn't had a personal episode since the first season), and he was basically filling out the team. It was around that time that Iceman started to get a bigger role.

    Spyke was in the X-men Evolution Comic books. i honestly think that even the writers did not love him. They just abandoned him, especially in seasons 3 and 4 where we see very little of him.
