In which writers Dennis Hopeless and Charles Soule join us for a live episode at Emerald City Comic Con, Age of X is the world’s worst morale boost; Charles and Dennis X-Plain the Marvel Universe; we still can’t get Hieronymus Bosch’s X-Men out of our heads; and apparently somehow we’ve recorded and posted 150 of these things.

X-PLAINED:

  • Age of X
  • Evil Moira MacTaggert Disambiguation
  • The post-Secret Wars Marvel Universe
  • Major X-Men turning points
  • ResurrXion

149 – Panning for Callbacks

Art by David Wynne. href=”http://particlefiction.bigcartel.com/”>Contact David to purchase the original!

In which Old Man Logan is probably better than it deserves to be; Steve McNiven is magical; the post-apocalyptic future probably belongs to the LARPers; Miles’s dad may or may not secretly be Hawkeye; all babies are supervillains; every movie should have a dinosaur chase scene; Emma Frost is our queen forever; and you should never trust a Hitler cosplayer.

X-PLAINED:

  • Wolverine: Lord of the Vampires
  • Mark Millar
  • Wolverine vol. 3 #66-72
  • Giant-Size Wolverine: Old Man Logan
  • The Hooded Man
  • “Old Man Logan” vs. Old Man Logan
  • The difference between Logan and Wolverine
  • Old-timey apocalypses
  • The Hulk Gang
  • Old Man Hawkeye
  • The Spider-Buggy
  • Moloids
  • Hammer Falls
  • Ultron-8
  • Several generations of supervillains
  • How the world fell under darkness
  • President Red Skull
  • Some very cathartic violence
  • Narrative functions of the rampage

Jay & Miles X-Plain Logan (on Syfy Wire)!

 

The fine folks at Syfy Wire asked us to make a video to tell the Internet about the comics that the Logan movie is based on, and so we did! For our thoughts on Old Man Logan, X-23, Charles Xavier’s road buddy qualifications, and Donald Pierce’s amazing fuchsia cape:

148 – That’s So Ravens

Art by David Wynne. Contact David to purchase the original!

In which Archangel falls in with the LARP crowd; all yuppies are (probably) vampires; Beast is kind of a jerk; there are a lot of reasons to be mad at Forge; and you should totally come hang out with us at ECCC!
