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: 23 - The (maybe) Dark (someday) Phoenix Saga

Podcast cover
Read more

In this super-sized episode, Trev & Joe are joined by a special guest and real-life girl, Christina Himmelspach (@stinaspach), in order to finally give the show some female perspective. The three provide, for its 21st anniversary, a full in-depth breakdown of the four-part adaptation of The Dark Phoenix Saga from the '90s X-Men: Animated Series, discussing its highs, lows, and weird decisions. Also, in the second ever episode of Chatting Tatum, the choice of Doug Liman to direct Gambit analyzed (and Tatum is fawned over, of course). The trio also ponder whether the Deadpool movie is being primarily marketed to "dude-bro's," and answer some listener questions regarding potential Deadpool cameo's in future X-films, Quicksilver's magic walk-man, and the "Rogue Cut" of Days of Future Past. And, Christina talks cosplaying, Trev defends himself against an infamous slanderous story that Joe won't let die, and the trio discuss the recent Shia LeBeouf "All My Movies" event. All this and more, on (perhaps) the most estrogen-friendly episode yet!

This week's theme song, Songs You Didn't Know Had Lyrics: X-Men, comes from Fox's Animation Domination High Def. Check it out at:

Rank #2: 52 - God Loves, Man Kills, We Review

Podcast cover
Read more

It's one of the most famous X-Men stories of all time, and - as discussed in this episode - it suddenly feels as relevant as ever. This week, we take an in-depth look at Chris Claremont's classic 1982 graphic novel, "God Loves, Man Kills." Along with being the (loose) inspiration for X2: X-MEN UNITED, this story is also one of Claremont's highest accomplishments with the franchise. In fact, it might just be THE best X-Men story ever. Agree? Disagree? Listen to our thoughts, and let us know what you think.

But first, in a segment we may or may not have already done in the past, Trev tries to guess who Wizard Magazine wanted to cast for the rumored X-MEN movie in 1995. Also, discussion of the apparent Fox X-MEN film franchise release schedule. And, Trev makes an impassioned plea for Marvel to once again make the X-Men comics franchise the socially relevant examination of racism and civil rights the world needs it to be right now. That's right - we're getting political again, with no apologies this time.

Podcast cover

On this episode, Trev & Joe attempt to explain one of the most inexplicable X-Men characters of them all, the super-villain Mister Sinister. Following the news that Sinister will appear in the new WOLVERINE movie, the guys discuss his comic book origins, appearance, wildly inconsistent powers and motives, and whether or not he's the proper villain to headline what is being billed as the final WOLVERINE film. All in the hope that, if we talk about Sinister enough, Bryan Cranston will ask to come on the show.

Also, the guys ponder whether or not they will buy X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, while discussing the recent release of deleted scenes that shouldn't have been deleted. Plus, Trev's love of AMERICA'S GOT TALENT, Joe's ongoing search for the perfect potato chip, the wonders of online grocery shopping, America's reluctance to embrace the bidet, the myth of STAR TREK: TNG being a great show, STARGATE and its hundred spin-offs...all this, and more, in what is arguably one of our most off-topic episodes ever!

Rank #4: 29 - Chris Claremont's Neo Con

Podcast cover
Read more

In the year 2000, X-Men fans were given what seemed to be a special treat. Legendary writer Chris Claremont, famous for his epic run writing the X-Men from 1975-1991, finally returned to the core X-titles for the first time in nine years. It was exciting! It was much hyped! It was...a complete disaster. In this episode, Trev & Joe take a look back at this now almost-forgotten, strange blip in comic history, when the greatest X-Men writer of them all was removed from the main X-Men books after only ten disappointing months. All is X-amined - the underwhelming new villains, the abandoned plot threads, and the behind-the-scenes drama that might have just doomed Claremont from the beginning. PLUS, the guys give their Deadpool box office predictions, discuss the announced casting for the Legion TV series, and share their thoughts on the X-Files revival (hey, it's somewhat X-related). All this, and more!

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 #7: 49 - The Good, The Bad, and The Fox

Podcast cover
Read more

There's a lot of big X-MEN news this week, and we're here to x-plore all of it. First up, a discussion of the recently announced new X-Men comic titles that will make up the line's 2017 relaunch, as part of Marvel's "Resurrxion" event. What do these new titles suggest about the future of X-Men comics, and why should fans of the '90s be excited about the two new core titles?

Next, we take a look at both the good and the bad regarding the X-MEN movie universe, as this past week gave us both a new trailer for LOGAN, as well as some distressing news about director Tim Miller leaving DEADPOOL 2. We pick apart the LOGAN trailer, and share how it affects our current feelings about the movie, and then try to make some damn sense of this Miller situation, and what it might mean for the Deadpool franchise moving forward (Hint: it won't involve Quentin Tarantino). And we wrap it all up with our predictions of what and when the next actual X-MEN movie will be.

All this and, of course, more of the off-topic tangents you've come to expect from this alleged X-Men podcast. So give it a listen, and enjoy!

Rank #8: 61 - Long Dark Phoenix of the Soul

Podcast cover
Read more

"The Dark Phoenix Saga." It is arguably the most famous and beloved X-Men story of all time, and it is also apparently the source material for the next X-MEN movie...an often predicted and now seemingly confirmed do-over of the first attempt at translating the classic story in X-MEN: THE LAST STAND. What is it about this story? Why do Fox and the X-MEN filmmakers believe is necessary to revisit it now? And is this truly the best time to try it again? We examine all of these questions and more, as we discuss X-MEN: THE DARK PHOENIX and the fallout of the title announcement.

Also, talk of the other recent news regarding NEW MUTANTS and DEADPOOL 2, and the first official photo of ABC's upcoming INHUMANS series. Plus, most importantly, Trev takes an incredibly well-researched Buzzfeed quiz which uses food choices to reveal which X-Men villain he is. All this, and more!

Rank #9: 57 - Old Man Jackman: The LOGAN Review!

Podcast cover
Read more

17 years ago, an unknown Aussie by the name of Hugh Jackman took on what seemed an impossible task: to breath life into the most popular X-Men character, in the franchise's very first live-action adaptation. His interpretation not only made him a star, but would go on to become one of the most beloved, iconic comic book movie performances of all time. Now, nine movies later, an era comes to a close, as Jackman plays Wolverine one last time in the brand new film LOGAN.

In this episode, we give our full review. Is it a worthy swan-song for Jackman's version of the character? What about Patrick Stewart, also potentially leaving the series after this? How important is the much-discussed R rating to the film? Is the introduction of X-23 to the X-MEN franchise an effective one? And...did we cry? All this, and much more, in an in-depth discussion of the movie.

Needless to say, SPOILERS abound in this episode, so approach with caution if you have not yet seen LOGAN.

Also, some very quick thoughts on the pre-LOGAN teaser for DEADPOOL 2, recent casting news about the as-of-yet untitled FOX X-Men series, Simon Kinberg potentially directing the next X-MEN movie, and some new casting rumors for Cable.

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.

Dazzler actually be appearing in the film? Will Taylor Swift truly
play her?" And, "just who the hell IS Dazzler, anyway??"Thankfully,
Trev & Joe are here for you, with this special look at Alison
Blaire, aka Dazzler, x-ploring both her origins and her place in
the X-universe. As a bonus, the guys also take a look at Lila
Cheney, Marvel's OTHER rock'n'roll mutant from the '80s, and
discuss a couple very well-done fan films starring the two
characters.

Plus, thoughts on the latest APOCALYPSE trailer, rumors of
X-23's cinematic debut, the over-excitement over the DEADPOOL DVD

Also, following their amazingly accurate DEADPOOL box-office predictions, the guys once again give their guesses at how the new film will do in the domestic box office. Then, the guys temporarily turn their attention away from the X-Universe to share their thoughts on CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR (which, to be fair, at least features one former mutant character in Scarlet Witch).

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.

That's right, it's finally time to x-amine OLD MAN LOGAN, from superstar creators Mark Millar and Steve McNiven. In this future-set tale, we meet an older, broken Logan, who has not popped his claws in fifty years, and lives a quiet family life in a supervillain-controlled America with no more superheroes. What led to Logan's new pacifist stance? And will a mysterious mission with an elderly, nearly-blind Hawkeye bring back the Wolverine we all know and love? We run through all eight issues of this classic 2008 event, sharing our thoughts on both the highlights and some of the more questionable elements.

But first, a brief discussion of the current ugliness plaguing the world of fandom, as well as our take on the surprising fallout of the recently released X-MEN: GOLD #30, featuring the long-awaited wedding of Kitty Pryde and Colossus. Or did it??

As the world hunkers down into a pandemic-created quarantine, we've decided to spend this valuable time diving into one of the strangest pieces of X-Men history, the April 1983 one-shot "Obnoxio the Clown vs. The X-Men." This issue saw the mascot of the then recently-cancelled Marvel humor magazine "Crazy" invited to the X-Mansion to perform for Kitty Pryde's birthday. Unfortunately, he just so happens to arrive at the same time a bizarre villain named Eye-Scream is planning an attack on the X-Men....and (allegedly) wacky hijinks ensue. We discuss both the one-shot and the history of the Obnoxio character in general, in order to decipher why this issue even happened, and why Obnoxio is mostly forgotten about today.

Plus, we of course have to talk about the recent coronavirus cancellation of THE NEW MUTANTS' upcoming release. Is this movie truly cursed?

122 - Fallen Angels (1987) Review

Podcast cover
Read more

Why the heck was one of the new Dawn of X titles called "Fallen Angels," you ask? Well, it turns out the name (and name only) is, apparently a reference to a New Mutants spin-off mini-series by Jo Duffy and Kerry Gammill from 1987. In this totally bonkers eight-issue miniseries, Sunspot (Bobby da Costa) runs away from his New Mutant teammates, with alien buddy Warlock in tow, and soon the two find themselves mixed up with a bizarre team of young, super-powered street criminals, led by a former X-Villain. Along for the ride are Multiple Man and Siryn, who are sent by Magneto and Moira MacTaggert to locate the wayward New Mutants, but soon also find themselves part of this new ragtag group. It's an absolutely wild series that highlights all that was great (and confusing) about comic books in the late '80s, and we're here to talk all about it.

But first, we check in with how we're feeling about the initial wave of Dawn of X books now that the second wave is beginning to hit, and we also spend arguably a bit too much time talking about the filmographies of Kelsey Grammar and Tom Arnold. All this, and more, so give it a listen.

121 - New Year, New Mutants?

Podcast cover
Read more

In what feels like the saga that never ends, we are once again being promised (threatened with?) an upcoming release of Josh Boone's THE NEW MUTANTS. In this episode, we take a look at the recently released new trailer, and discuss our thoughts on both the trailer and the upcoming release in general. Are we still excited to see the movie? What do we think are the best-case scenarios for the film, and its impact on the MCU? Do we even really believe the movie is coming out??

Plus, we take a look at Patrick Stewart's recent statements about a supposed X-Men related meeting with Kevin Feige, and also share our take on the potential role Scarlet Witch will play in introducing mutants into the MCU. All this, and more!

120 - Rise of the Podtalkers: A Star Wars Special

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Podcast cover

It's Christmas time, that time of the year when we celebrate a jolly old man with a white beard...that's right, Chris Claremont! On this episode, we're taking a look at director Patrick Meaney's documentary "Chris Claremont's X-Men," now available on Amazon Prime. The doc takes an in-depth look at Claremont's long original run on the X-Men books, honoring his legacy and mourning a business model that evolved beyond him. We share our thoughts on the movie, as well as offer our own takes on Claremont and his undeniable place in X-Men history. 

Plus, a look at the crazy roster of the newly announced "Hellions" book, and our usual, trademark, totally-on-topic talk of The Simpsons, Star Wars, and more.

Podcast cover

Disney+ has arrived, and while everyone is busy obsessing over THE MANDALORIAN (and fretting over "Maclunkey"), let's not forget that means we suddenly have access to a wide variety of animated X-Men fare. On this episode, we discuss the three X-Men animated series that are available on the service - the classic '90s X-MEN: THE ANIMATED SERIES, the high-school based X-MEN: EVOLUTION, and the surprisingly mature, one-season wonder, WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN. 

Plus, we check in with some quick thoughts on the first issues that have so far been released in the "Dawn of X" event (before a deeper dive next episode), and Joe takes Trevor to task for abandoning him to a harsh November snowstorm in Michigan. All this, and more!

116 - Halloween Spooktacular V: Heroes for Hope

Podcast cover

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.

114 - LEGION Season 3 Review

Podcast cover

We're back! That's right, it's our long-awaited Season Two premiere, and we're celebrating with a belated, but nonetheless exciting look at the third and final season of FX's LEGION. After a controversial second season, Noah Hawley's mind-bending look at David Haller, the troubled son of Charles Xavier, returned and wrapped up this past summer. Were we satisfied with the resolution? And how do we now feel about the series in total? We answer these questions and more, with an in-depth (sorta) look at the third season.

But first, talk of the Disney/Sony Spider-Man brouhaha, the brief rumor of Kit Harrington playing Wolverine, and the X-Men cartoons coming to the Disney+ streaming service. Plus, we check in on HoXPox, and discuss how we're currently feeling about Jonathan Hickman's epic relaunch of the X-MEN comic universe.

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

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.

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.

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!
