  1. Thank you so much for adding time stamps! It really helps a loser like me who is behind on half of the X-Titles right now.

    Love the podcast, love the reviews! You guys are awesome!

  2. Amazing x-men was an excellent one shot… Good to see a spotlight on some student characters. Loved the way the characters played off each other (tension but a grown up resolution between Northstar and NIghtcrawler). And also the good point that we sometimes see raised in X-Men about degrees of mutation… Eg, Northstar may be gay but he had model looks. Reminds me of the jealousy Marrow used to have for “pretty Kitty” back in the day (I think fairly justified jealousy, Kitty is always portrayed as slightly too perfect by writers who seem to have fallen in love with her themselves!). Lady Mastermind is also an excellently suitable villain for this – her motivation is really just maliciousness! Shame she and Emma Frost look almost interchangeable. Naughty Chris Bachalo tends to repeat favourite costume designs… Anyway, good read!

  3. Did you two do something wonky with your RSS feed? My reader (Bloglovin) has somehow not picked up your last three posts. Is it something on my end, or did you change something? Still loving the show, btw!

  4. The unbridled joy on Rachel’s face when Miles suggests Nightcrawler/Northstar buddy road movie is the stuff dreams are made of.
