We all know that there is a lot of animated Marvel media out there. Unfortunately, a good amount of it is...not great. So when Jeremy and Gary encountered X-Men Evolution, fresh off the strange Incredible Hulk and the very bad Avongers...ahem, Avengers, cartoons, changing up the focus and format was an excellent idea. Listen to two knowledgeable comics buds actually be excited and enthusiastic about, at present, Grant Morrison’s New X-Men run. I was intrigued enough to give Marvel Unlimited a shot and follow along with the podcast, and having read the first few issues of this run, am really interested to see where it, Jeremy, and Gary’s Discourse on it go!

Rank #1: 115 - HoX PoX Review

Podcast cover
Read more

HoX PoX is complete! Jonathan Hickman's epic, and much-publicized 12-issue relaunch of the X-Men universe wrapped up last week, so now - on the eve of the "Dawn of X" series of new monthly X-titles - it's time for us to look back at the complete HoX PoX saga. What did we think of "House of X" and "Powers of X" overall? Who were our favorite characters, and what were the most exciting moments? Do we have any theories or predictions? And how x-cited are we for what is to come next? All of these questions and more are answered, as we get into an in-depth discussion of what truly was one of the biggest and most revolutionary events in X-Men history.

In this eagerly anticipated by no one episode, Trev finally plows into the next two Axel Braun X-Men porn parodies, WOLVERINE XXX and AVENGERS vs X-MEN XXX. Stained costumes, strange cliffhangers, and oddly specific comic book references...Trev has seen it all. And we do mean ALL. Are the films worth seeing for X-Men fans, or just average horn-dogs? Listen on, and find out. But first, Trev and Joe take a look at the LEGION trailer that was unveiled at San Diego Comic Con, as well as talk about the character of Legion and how they feel the character can be translated to television. Also, brief discussion on the critical response to SUICIDE SQUAD, the lack of a Cable casting announcement, and more.

Rank #4: 50 - When X-Men Went Weird: The NEW X-MEN Review

Podcast cover
Read more

This week, we take an in-depth look at Grant Morrison's classic (and divisive) "NEW X-MEN" run. From 2001 to 2004, the Scottish writer completely upturned the idea of what an X-Men comic could be, in the most shocking reinvention of the franchise fans had ever seen yet. Less a traditional superhero story and more a warped, dark sci-fi epic, Morrison's time on "NEW X-MEN" continues to be one of the most discussed and analyzed periods in X-Men history...so now it's our turn to take a stab. The dissolution of Scott and Jean's relationship, the emergence of Emma Frost as a central X-Men character, the confusing tale of Xorn, and the introductions of Cassandra Nova, John Sublime, Quentin Quire, Fantomex and more - it' all here, as we take a look at the entire run, summarizing each story arc, and sharing some of our favorite characters, ideas and revelations. And don't worry...we promise this episode is a lot easier to follow and understand than a typical Grant Morrison story.

Rank #5: 98 - Second Coming Review

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode, we review the 2010 conclusion to the epic trilogy of X-Men crossover events that started with "Messiah Complex" and continued with "Messiah War." In "Second Coming," Cable and a now teenage Hope Summers have finally returned from their time-hopping adventures, and Bastion and his cabal of resurrected X-villains are intent on killing Hope, and with her the potential future of the now extremely dwindling mutant race. With their very existence on the line in a way they have never experienced before, the X-teams are forced to turn to a more militant approach in order to fight back, as Hope wrestles with her status of would-be mutant messiah, in one of the most action-packed X-events of all time. How does the crossover hold up, eight years later? We share our thoughts.

Also, we discuss what it might mean that MCU mastermind Kevin Feige apparently had script input on X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX, the importance of DEADPOOL 2's Grammy nomination, and Joe ponders whether or not to see ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL. All this, and more!

Podcast cover

Back in the summer of 1996, after years of teases, the X-traitor was finally revealed, in one of the biggest crossover events in X-Men history....ONSLAUGHT! Now, 19 years later, in this super-sized episode, Trev & Joe are ready to discuss this moment, even at the cost of their own sanity. Listen as the guys bravely attempt to summarize and analyze one of the craziest events in X-history, as well as its even crazier fallout, the infamous Heroes Reborn. Even if you're not that interested in the story, maybe you'll enjoy listening to the two lose their minds as they struggle to adequately recap a gigantic, and at times baffling story, that even today sends shivers down the spines of many comic readers.

But first, some discussion about Rose Byrne returning to the role of Moira MacTaggert in X-Men: Apocalypse, and the recent announcement that writer Brian Michael Bendis is soon leaving the X-books. Also, in another edition of X-Crement, Joe shares his confusion about Professor Xavier's seemingly unlimited budget.

Do you believe in life after love? First up this episode, we examine that question in a special (but somber) edition of "Chatting Tatum," as we discuss the recent news regarding Channing's personal life. Then, on a more positive note, Joe shares his thoughts on the Marvel Knights 2010 miniseries "Angel: Revelations." 

Next, as crazy as the idea of an "X-Men podcast" might sound, that hasn't stopped Marvel and Stitcher from launching the recent audio drama, WOLVERINE: THE LONG NIGHT. We've listened to the early episodes, and we're here to tell you what we think about this experiment in a new form of X-Men storytelling. Finally, we review the first two episodes of LEGION Season Two. Is the show still as wild and inventive as before? Listen on to find out!

Rank #9: 79 - She's Not the Messiah, She's a Gifted Little Girl

Podcast cover
Read more

After over a year of watching the X-Men and other mutant teams deal with the devastating fallout of 2005's "House of M," in which the mutant population was decimated, in 2007 a three-part saga was commenced to finally pay off and bring to a climax the events set into motion by that event. In this episode, we look at the first part of that saga, the 2007 crossover event "Messiah Complex," which sees the X-Men, the Purifiers, and Mister Sinister's Marauders all fighting to gain control of the first mutant birth since "House of M." Except, what they don't know is that a thought-dead former X-Man actually has the baby...and another trusted teammate is about to betray them all in an attempt to destroy the child. "Messiah Complex" was the beginning of a new era for the X-Men, simultaneously bringing hope (literally, even) back to the mutant universe, while also kicking off an even darker, more violent tone that the books had previously seen. We discuss it all, with an in-depth discussion of the event.

But first, our thoughts on the new DEADPOOL 2 trailer, and we speculate about the recent news that Brian Michael Bendis will be teaming with Tim Miller for a mysterious X-MEN movie currently known only as "143." Plus, Trev shares his quick thoughts on BLACK PANTHER, and Joe tries very hard not to die from pure joy, as this is a very Cable-heavy episode.

Rank #10: 69 - Joss Whedon's X-stonishing X-Venture

Podcast cover
Read more

With geek icon Joss Whedon recently in the news for...well, let's just say "reasons," there's probably no better time than now to re-examine his classic X-Men epic, the Eisner Award winning "Astonishing X-Men." In 2004, in the wake of Grant Morrison's groundbreaking "New X-Men" run, Marvel was looking for another superstar writer to take the reins of their merry mutants, and bring the X-Men back to a more classic direction. Enter the BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER creator Whedon, who - along with incredible artist John Cassaday - delivered one of the biggest and most beloved runs of the franchise ever. Now, Trev & Joe look back at Whedon and Cassady's entire "Astonishing X-Men" run, re-visiting each of the four main story-lines, how they feel about the arc's classic moments (including an unforgettable resurrection), and which characters they feel Whedon handled particularly well. Plus, some discussion of how recent revelations about Whedon the man might influence how fans now regard this and other Whedon works.

But first - talk of Jessica Chastain's recent bombshell that she is NOT playing Lilandra in X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX (including speculation of who she must be playing instead), rumors of Fox being unsure of Simon Kinberg's directorial skills, and the big news that Drew Goddard will write and direct the now confirmed X-FORCE movie. All this, and more!

It's the season one finale of Days of Future Podcast (don't worry, we explain within), and we're going out with a bang! First up, we discuss the MCU Phase Four announcements from San Diego Comic Con, assessing the cinematic universe the X-Men will eventually be entering in the (near?) future. Then, we take a look at all of the upcoming X-universe comic titles that were announced at SDCC. What do we think about out first peek at the post-HOUSE OF X/POWERS OF X X-Men landscape?

Speaking of HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X (or "HoX PoX," as the cool kids are calling it), the first issues of both have been released, and we've read them! That's right, Joe is joining Trev in staying current on this epic relaunch of the X-Men universe. We take a deep dive into the first two issues of Jonathan Hickman's bold new take on Marvel's mutants, summarizing the events and then sharing our thoughts and predictions on what's to come. It's an incredibly exciting time to be a X-MEN fan, to be sure, but do we feel the initial issues lived up to the hype? Listen on to find out!

Could it really be as bad as the hype suggests? We aim to find out. NOTE: This is less a screen-specific commentary, and more a document of two guys being very confused about what they are seeing. We can't guarantee this is one of our best episodes...but if you've ever wanted to hear us baffled and close to losing our minds, this might be the episode for you.

How do Marvel's merry mutants fare against the king of the vampires himself? 

On a less frightening note, we also discuss the recent revelations about the upcoming LEGION television series, offer our thoughts on all the LOGAN movie news that just dropped, share our favorite classic Halloween specials, and take a moment to unbox some x-tremely generous listener mail.

After a bit of a holiday break, we're back to talk all things...Star Wars? That's right, instead of our usual off-topic tangents (and on the perhaps foolish belief that you all like just listening to us talk about ANY nerdy stuff), we've decided to dedicate an entire episode to our thoughts on STAR WARS EPISODE IX: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER and Disney+'s THE MANDALORIAN. It's a very interesting time for Star Wars, with a fan-base divided and general confusion and disagreements about where the franchise should go next. How did we feel about the new movie, and the much-hyped new streaming series? And how do we feel about Star Wars in general these days? All this and more, answered within.

Don't worry, we'll be back to discussing X-Men (including a look at the new NEW MUTANTS trailer) very soon. So please pardon this temporary diversion.

For our fifth annual Halloween episode, we're taking a look at 1985's "Heroes for Hope: Starring the X-Men" one-shot, a special issue put together by Marvel to help raise awareness about hunger in Africa, with all proceeds for the book going towards African famine relief. A surprisingly dark, psychological horror-tinged tale that sees the X-Men battling an ancient demon that can summon their greatest fears, this book was a true all-star effort, with contributions from both numerous famous comic creators (including Stan Lee, Chris Claremont, Alan Moore, Frank Miller, Brian Bolland, Archie Goodwin, Denny O'Neill, John Romita Jr. and many others), AND a few notable authors from outside the industry, such as George R.R. Martin, Edward Bryant, Harlan Ellison, and the master of terror himself, Stephen King.

Plus, we try to figure out which X-Men characters would be best suited to play some of our favorite iconic horror movie characters (n case they want to trade in superheroics for acting), and Trev offers some very brief thoughts on the first couple "Dawn of X" titles, X-Men #1 and Marauders #1. All this and more, so turn off the lights, go grab some of that Halloween candy you stole from your children (you know you do it), and give us a listen.

113 - HoX PoX ROX

Podcast cover
Read more

It's the season one finale of Days of Future Podcast (don't worry, we explain within), and we're going out with a bang! First up, we discuss the MCU Phase Four announcements from San Diego Comic Con, assessing the cinematic universe the X-Men will eventually be entering in the (near?) future. Then, we take a look at all of the upcoming X-universe comic titles that were announced at SDCC. What do we think about out first peek at the post-HOUSE OF X/POWERS OF X X-Men landscape?

Speaking of HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X (or "HoX PoX," as the cool kids are calling it), the first issues of both have been released, and we've read them! That's right, Joe is joining Trev in staying current on this epic relaunch of the X-Men universe. We take a deep dive into the first two issues of Jonathan Hickman's bold new take on Marvel's mutants, summarizing the events and then sharing our thoughts and predictions on what's to come. It's an incredibly exciting time to be a X-MEN fan, to be sure, but do we feel the initial issues lived up to the hype? Listen on to find out!

112 - X-STATIX Returns!!

Podcast cover
Read more

In 2001, writer Peter Milligan and artist Michael Allred took over X-FORCE, ditching the characters fans already knew and loved for a completely new cast and a bold new concept - a satirical book about a mutant superhero team that were also reality TV stars. Eventually re-launching with the new title X-STATIX, this insanely creative title would be ultimately short-lived, but go on to enjoy a strong cult following to this day. Now, 15 years since the original X-STATIX title ended, Mister Sensitive, Doop, Dead Girl, Vivisector, & U-Go Girl are back (along with some new members), in Milligan and Allred's brand-new GIANT SIZE X-STATIX #1. In this episode, we discuss the issue, giving our thoughts on if the return of X-Statix lived up to the hype, and also our excitement over the surprise announcement at the end of the issue.

Plus, we've seen the first three episodes of the third and final season of LEGION, so we're checking in with our initial thoughts on the climactic run. Is it still as weird as ever? Is the new storyline worthy of the second season cliffhanger? And what do we think of the show's depiction of Charles Xavier? All this, and more.

111 - Fox Rankings, DARK PHOENIX Fallout, & Keanu!!

Podcast cover
Read more

The Fox era is officially over (yeah, yeah, we know...NEW MUTANTS...but whatever), and so we figured it was a good time to look at the entire Fox X-Film franchise and offer our definitive rankings of the twelve films. How similar are our lists? Which films do we believe stand above the rest, and which do we consider unwatchable? And what is our overall impression of the entire franchise? Listen on to find out.

Plus, with DARK PHOENIX released and already evaporating from the public consciousness, we take a look at the fallout, including details on the original ending, Simon Kinberg assuming personal responsibility for its failure, and what its future reputation might be. Also, new info about a scrapped Beast movie, Joe discusses his excitement about the upcoming Hickman run of X-books, and we offer our thoughts on who Keanu Reeves could play in the X-Men wing of the MCU. All this, and, in the return of Mutant Match-Up, we ponder whether a villainous telepath or a certain snarky mercenary would be the better candidate to relaunch the X-Men film franchise for Disney.

110 - DARK PHOENIX Review

Podcast cover
Read more

It is finally upon us. Nearly 20 years after it started, the Fox X-MEN franchise comes to a close with DARK PHOENIX, which arrived in theaters this past weekend to an embarrassing critical drubbing and dreadful box office results. But does the film really deserve the reaction it received? We're here to share our thoughts on the highs and lows of the film - What does it get right? What does it get wrong? What did we think of Sophie Turner's titular performance? And is the movie a worthy conclusion to this iteration of the X-Men cinematic saga? We discuss all this and more, in an in-depth review and breakdown of DARK PHOENIX.

109 - Lifedeath Review

Podcast cover
Read more

In 1984, writer Chris Claremont and artist Barry Windsor-Smith offered up a different type of superhero story in X-Men #186. "Lifedeath: A Love Story" finds a recently de-powered Storm being tended to by Forge - the man who, unbeknownst to her, is himself partly responsible for her losing her mutant abilities. How does a woman once worshipped as a super-powered goddess face a future with no powers? Is she more than the sum of her powers? This classic, introspective story sought to answer these questions, in the process further developing Storm into one of the X-Men's best, most complex characters. A year later, Claremont and Windsor-Smith would deliver a sequel story, "Lifedeath II," in X-Men #198, this time depicting a wounded, exhausted Storm tasked with protecting a young pregnant woman in the African plains. In this episode, we take a look at both of these classic stories, examining what they tell us about Storm, and why stories like these manage to resonate and stand out amongst the more common action-packed adventures often found in comic pages.

Plus, we take a look at the teaser trailer for the third season of LEGION, offer box-predictions for DARK PHOENIX, and discuss the firs in-depth details of Jonathan Hickman's upcoming revamp of the X-Men comics line, with "House of X" and "Power of X." And, way too much talk of the GAME OF THRONES series finale.

108 - X-Men: Days of Future Past Audio Commentary

Podcast cover
Read more

In the much anticipated return of the film commentary series, Trev & Joe are once again joined by our friend (and fellow X-Nerd) Tom, to provide a running audio commentary for 2014's X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. This star-studded follow-up to both FIRST CLASS and the original X-MEN trilogy is one of the most successful, critically acclaimed entries in the Fox X-MEN franchise. Why is this particular entry so beloved, and does now knowing where the series was heading after this (not to mention more knowledge about the problematic director) change how one might x-perience the film? Join us as we watch the film and x-plore these questions, and more. As usual with our commentaries, watching along with us is recommended, but certainly not required.

NOTE: This audio commentary is for the theatrical edition of DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, not the alternate "Rogue Cut."

107 - Earth's Mightiest Podcast: Avengers Endgame Review (a "What If" special)

Podcast cover
Read more

In the grand tradition of Marvel's classic "What if" series, which explored alternate versions of beloved characters and stories, this episode takes a look at a world where Trev and Joe don't host an X-Men podcast, but instead have a long-running Avengers podcast. And wouldn't you know it...it's just in time to review the much anticipated AVENGERS: ENDGAME, the 22nd film in the MCU, currently obliterating box office records across the globe. What did Trev & Joe think of this massive hit? Listen on to find out.

NOTE: this is a very spoiler heavy discussion, so if you're one of the 17 people who have still not seen ENDGAME, tread carefully here.

106 - The Gifted Season 2 Review

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode, we take a look back at the recently completed second season of FOX's THE GIFTED. How did the second year stack up against the "better than you would think but still not GREAT" first season? Which characters were improved, and which lost some luster? Was this year's storyline more compelling? What did we think of the live-action depiction of the Morlocks? Most importantly, is the show still a worthwhile watch for X-Men fans? We answer all of these questions, and more.

Also, we briefly discuss the just announced return of Peter Milligan and Michael Allred's "X-Statix," and share our thoughts on the STAR WARS EPISODE IX: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER trailer. Plus...ESPN?

NOTE: This episode was recorded before news of THE GIFTED's cancellation...so when we speculate on the possibility of a third season, feel free to roll your eyes in annoyance.

105 - MCU X-Men Director Draft

Podcast cover
Read more

With it now more or less assured that the X-Men will soon be coming to the MCU, in this episode we discuss which directors we would most like to see handed the reins, and why. 

Plus, we once again speculate on the future of THE NEW MUTANTS based on Maisie Williams' recent comments about the lack of planned reshoots, and examine the recent news about superstar comic writer Jonathan Hickman returning to Marvel for two new X-books, "Age of X" and "Power of X." And, in one of the most contentious moments in DOFPodcast history, we have an intense, way-too-long argument about Steven Spielberg's recent announcement that he will be working with the new Apple streaming service, and whether or not this makes him a hypocrite. Cause, you know...X-Men?

104 - Mutant March Madness II - Movie & TV Characters

Podcast cover
Read more

Last year, we held a Mutant March Madness tournament to determine the best X-Men comic character of all time. This year, the tourney is back, but we're turning our attention to the live-action realm, as we pit 64 of the most iconic live-action X-Universe characters against each other in a last-mutant-standing battle. Included are characters from the X-MEN and DEADPOOL film franchises, as well as TV's LEGION and THE GIFTED. Determining factors include how accurate they are to their comic book origins, how strong the actor's performance is, and - if those aren't enough - the "X-Factor!" Who is the greatest X-Men movie & TV character ever? You might think you know, but we promise there are some surprises along the way.

103 - Dark Phoenix Trailer Breakdown

Podcast cover
Read more

A brand new DARK PHOENIX trailer (two, if you also count the International version) has dropped, and we're here to share our thoughts. The surprising(?) reveal of a major character death, the continued mystery of who exactly Jessica Chastain is playing, oddly familiar looking setpieces, and a questionable make-up job for Mystique...we eXamine it all, including the overall fan reaction to the trailer. Has this new look at the film made us more or less excited for the final chapter in the Fox X-Men saga?

Plus, we also share our thoughts on which characters and storylines we're most surprised and/or disappointed we never got to see in nearly twenty years of Fox X-Men films. And, in another installment of "Mutant Match-Up," a cocky X-student and a villain-turned-X-Men-associate are pitted against each other in an incredibly serious battle to see who could probably best fold a fitted sheet. Also, Weird Al talk, FULL/FULLER HOUSE talk, and...Kirk Cameron talk? All this, and more!

102 - Dazzler's Shining Moment...almost

Podcast cover
Read more

The year is 1980. Mount St. Helens is about to erupt, Ronald Reagan is on his way to being elected President, and over in Hollywood, megastar Bo Derek is preparing to star as Dazzler in what will be the first live-action blockbuster movie from Marvel. That's right, decades before we were all wowed by how impressive AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR was, we almost had an even more ambitious cinematic superhero spectacle - a DAZZLER movie that would have seen everyone's favorite disco-queen mutant, along with Spider-Man and the Avengers, zapped to the far future. Set to star an extremely eclectic cast including Derek, Robin Williams, Cher, KISS, The Village People, Rodney Dangerfield, and more, the DAZZLER movie obviously never actually happened. But in this episode, we take a look at the bizarre treatment written for the film (by comics legend Jim Shooter)...as well as the problematic, but perhaps more-relevant-than-ever 1984 graphic novel, "Dazzler: The Movie" (also penned by Shooter), which details Dazzler's encounters with the sleazy men of the entertainment industry.

But first, we discuss news of LEGION's third season being its swan song, ponder which X-property we'd like to see M. Night Shyamalan direct, share our thoughts on Wolverine teaming with Conan the Barbarian in the new "Savage Avengers" comic, and - bringing it back to Dazzler - take a look at the recent announcement of her and other Marvel characters receiving brand new animated series from Hulu.

101 - The Singer Conundrum

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode, we tackle a complicated topic in the world of X-Men. With a number of new allegations of sexual misconduct against Bryan Singer, it seemed high time to discuss how the controversy surrounding the director/producer affects the legacy of the Fox X-Men films. As the Fox films have been largely shepherded by Singer's vision - even often referred to as the "Singerverse" - does this mean the films themselves will forever be tainted by this controversy? Can one still enjoy the movies Singer was involved with? SHOULD one? There might be no easy answers here, but we still do our best to examine this tough issue.

But first, we share our thoughts on recent rumors of NEW MUTANTS possibly debuting on HULU, as well as the apparent mixed response to recent DARK PHOENIX test screenings. We also answer a fan question regarding X-Men recommendations for Spider-Man fans, and - in a long awaited new edition of "Chatting Tatum" - we discuss the rumor of Tatum himself taking over the director's chair of GAMBIT. All this, and more!

Retooled For Everyone’s Pleasure

By chickenriggies - Dec 09 2019

We all know that there is a lot of animated Marvel media out there. Unfortunately, a good amount of it is...not great. So when Jeremy and Gary encountered X-Men Evolution, fresh off the strange Incredible Hulk and the very bad Avongers...ahem, Avengers, cartoons, changing up the focus and format was an excellent idea. Listen to two knowledgeable comics buds actually be excited and enthusiastic about, at present, Grant Morrison’s New X-Men run. I was intrigued enough to give Marvel Unlimited a shot and follow along with the podcast, and having read the first few issues of this run, am really interested to see where it, Jeremy, and Gary’s Discourse on it go!
