Issue 209: The enemy of my Hellfire Club is also my enemy
Mutants fight. And so on.
51 minutes | Jun 20, 2022
Issue 208: Mutants cubed!
Three groups of mutants have one great time! We enjoyed this week's issue. We also enjoyed talking about the weird selectivity of very old names and why we're cutting the Disney+ cord!
48 minutes | Jun 6, 2022
Issue 207: Wolverine, something something,Wolverine
SEO time! Wolverine, snikt, claws, Wolverine, Logan, Japan, Phoenix, Dark Phoenix, Wolverine, Wolverine
48 minutes | May 22, 2022
Issue 206: Freedom Force and bad fashion
Hot take: Star Wars is overrated! Listen here.
53 minutes | May 8, 2022
Issue 205: Claws make the man
We're back! Weird hiatus, but we're back with another one. Issue 205 and Claremont and Windsor-Smith have packed a powerful one! (pun intended) We also spoil the latest Dr. Strange.
35 minutes | Apr 10, 2022
Issue 204: Nightcrawler is alrightcrawler
Nightcrawler takes on Arcade and buckles are swashed!
47 minutes | Apr 4, 2022
The X-Men Files goes to Disney World!
Nothing at all about comics in this one. Just lots of straight talk about Disney World, where we just spent the past six days.
48 minutes | Mar 13, 2022
Issue 203: A little about the X-Men and a lot about The Batman
Who's the hottest Batman? Listen on, true believer!
44 minutes | Feb 28, 2022
Issue 202: The Beyonder is a bad boyfriend
The Beyonder is a jerk! The action in this issue is really boring ... or is it? We also talk about how critics may be reading too much into the audiences they're writing about and why Antonio Banderas shouldn't try to film a movie while combatting allergies.
45 minutes | Feb 21, 2022
Issue 201: Lots of talking, lots of fun
We talk a lot about talking and we bring all five sense to bear this week! Also, Brian talks about his heel turn on Bobba Fett and we wonder just how much longer we'll keep sending money to Disney+. Even more intriguing: will Mark Hamill accept $96 in exchange for never appearing as a de-aged Luke Skywalker? There's only one way to find out!
49 minutes | Feb 6, 2022
Issue 200: Magneto performs a splendid face turn
Claremont turns a villain into a hero and, folks ... it's credible! We dig into the classic issue #200, and perform a slow, mumbly recap. We talk about how our initial interest in Boba Fett is rapidly waning and then there's a lovefest for the Olympics. Biathlon!
39 minutes | Jan 31, 2022
Issue 199: Yay, Magneto!
53 minutes | Jan 24, 2022
Issue 198: We still love Ororo
We spend the first few minutes talking about power cords and the terrible people who run Apple. Eventually, we get around to talking about this week's issue: LifeDeath II. We love Ororo, we love Barry Windsor-Smith. We might not love Jean Grey coming back to life and we're definitely split on Boba Fett.
45 minutes | Jan 5, 2022
Issue 197: The X-Men is 100% about Ororo
Arcade, Murderworld, etc.
47 minutes | Jan 4, 2022
Issue 196: A spoiler-rich environment
Kitty says the N-word. 'Nuff said?
43 minutes | Dec 12, 2021
Issue 195: Wolverine almost murders a child
We were on the fence about this issue, in which we see a whole lot of Power Pack. Who were they meant to appeal to anyway. We also discuss the topic of "fridging" and conclude that we might not have enjoyed Skyfall.
44 minutes | Nov 29, 2021
Issue 194: Juggernaut vs. capitalism
Juggernaut goes to the bank, Nimrod is NOT a gay icon, Brian was a jerk in middle school, and everyone ought to eat latkes any damn they want to.
47 minutes | Nov 21, 2021
Issue 193: The 100th anniversary of issue 94
We're back with the X-Men! In addition to a rich discussion of moral obligation and the culture of victimhood, Brian and Inessa find time to talk about the war on Chanukah. We're not sure who's winning.
44 minutes | Nov 18, 2021
Kitty Pryde and Wolverine issues 5 & 6
Brian is back from his vision quest and we get to talk about comics again! The Kitty Pryde and Wolverine mini-series concludes and we're both fans.
49 minutes | Oct 31, 2021
Kitty Pryde vs. Wolverine issues 3-4
We discuss issues 3 and 4 of Kitty Pryde and Wolverine. In addition, we cover wokeness in sci-fi and elsewhere, Elon Musk, The Chair and take yet another cheap shot at Loki.
