Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men

As Mentioned in Episode 123 – Mojo Mayhem

Listen to the episode here.



  1. It’s awesome how the (self admited) worst work of Adams is better than the best work of so many other ‘artists’.

    I recently knew that most of people (Marvel Wikia included) think of the Domos as robots –that caught me by surprise. I always took for granted that they were bioengineered creatures just like Longshot or Quark, I never considered them as androids just because Major has got circuits or because Minor can be switched on/off (Longshot himself was switched off into his artificial womb by the spineless, remember?). I think they’re simply cyborgs. What do you think?

  2. So for Kitty’s powers and the signatures: why wouldn’t they work that way. Theoretically she can phase anything she’s touching (hence her clothes staying with her…most of the time). If she really focused on only affecting the specific ink on the contract and ignoring the rest of the paper wouldn’t it allow her to phase it.

    1. I think it’s more that we’d never seen Kitty phase anything that specific and complex a shape (either before or since), certanly not something that was saturating another material at the time she tried to phase it.

      I don’t think we’ve ever seen her phase to dry off after being out in the rain or the like, yet here she’s focussing her power precisely enough to remove multiple ink signatures from the paper they soaked into and dried in.

  3. Oh, man… next episode they’ll go through the Siege perilous. It’s the end of an era!!!

  4. Miles (and Jay), do you know how to support your voice from your diaphragm? It’s usually applied to singing, but it’s also used for things like screaming without making your vocal chords bleed. You just have to breathe low and feel tension in your lungs/stomach when you sing/shout/use the Mojo voice. I’m sorry to bother you, but I’m a big fan and I want to make sure that you don’t wreck your voice.

  5. Real late to the party, but I’m listening from episode one on up – the Bugs Bunny character is also pretty clearly a satire of Captain Carrots from DC’s Zoo Crew, which itself was a satire of the Justice League.
