The first episode of Rachel and Miles X-Plain the X-Men, ”The Strangest Podcast of Them All,” debuts this weekend. We hope you’ll join us!


  1. What are Cypher’s actual powers? He’s “good at language,” but sometimes that means learning/speaking new languages. Sometimes it means he’s a persuasive speaker. Once it even made him a good computer programmer! What can he ACTUALLY do? And can his character be redeemed?

  2. What ever happened to Skids? Also, what ever happened to Sage? I lost track of Skids years ago when she was in the 198 series. Sage seems like she just up and vanished. It’s hard keeping track of literally hundreds of great characters!

  3. I’ve got a few.

    How big a role do you think the Shi-ar play in the stability and safety of the X Men and in who they have become?

    Yellow? Why in the name of all that looks terrible on cheap paper did their original uniforms have to be so yellow?

    Iceman. Actual player or unacknowledged mascot?

    Do you think that there will ever be a live action movie made that tells the story told in the Majik miniseries?
