Ep.188 - Video James
00:47:29

Episode Notes

What's Wolverine's favorite video game system? The XBox I'm sorry.

We're talking about X-Men games tie-ins, some video, some card. These comics are not good, they have never been good, and they never would be good. But they are weird hell and I know you crazy kids love weird comics. Honestly? We get pretty distracted and don't talk about comics and instead Zack talks about playing video games in his friend Dave Newman's basement. Don't worry, it's still a super exciting episode to listen to.

Ranked this episode:

  • X-Men: Prelude to Perdition

  • X-Men: The Movie Special #1 (WotC)

Episode Notes

This week we talk about Lorna Dane, the lady known as Polaris. She had a rough go of it at the start of the 00s and we dive right into that whole ding dang mess.

Also, Zack got a football fact wrong and is very sorry that he implied that the traitor Tommy Tuberville used to coach Alabama, not Auburn. It's been a long week and Zack tries to think about the SEC as little as possible. Bama still sucks. Go Bucks!

Episode Notes

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Well, soon I guess. We celebrate in the X-Men way by just winging it based on cultural sterotypes that are probably a little insensitive. It is a very X-Men way to celebrate, that is for sure. Anyway we rushed to get this out so it isn't as editied as usual, sorry about that but I think it still turned out fun.

Incrediably excited to share this one with you folks. You might know him from X-Force, X-Men, Cable & Deadpool. It is legendary comicbook creator Fabian Nicieza. We talk about so many cool things like Shatterstar, Adam-X the X-Treme, and a secret Gambit project that the internet has no record of. Frankly, it is a wild interview.

Timelines are confusing. So is having multiple characters with the same name. Luckily, Ed Brisson is here to clean everything up. I'm sure after this the X-Men will no longer be confusing. Also this was recorded before X-Force was announced so be happy we talked about them as much as we did!

Episode Notes

I'm not gonna sugarcoat this one for you guys, this episode deals with a rough story. A story so rough that Zack needed everyone to know he was drinking to soothe the pain. Also we brought in Brett Simon from Renegades: Talking Valiant to discuss it. We are sorry it came to this (but not sorry for Brett because he is dope).

Ranked This Episode:

Ep.48 - Isn't That What The Marvel WIkia Is For? with Jordan D White
01:01:22

Episode Notes

The Marvel Wikia describes Jordan D White as "a panhandler in New York City". I describe him to my uninterested co-workers as the guy in charge of X-Men, which frankly, is a more relevant description. We talk about some of the big, upcoming changes in the world of X-Men, how to best structure a line, and the dangerous difference between voicing his opinion as a fan vs an editor.

Zack’s mic is still broke but he has a service ticket in with Blue to get a new ding dang microphone that doesn’t sound like he is running it through a BOSS DS-1. He does have a new USB cable on order to see if that fixes it, which will be here just in time for the next episode.

Episode Notes

You know him best from ET, Saving Private Ryan, and that movie about farting giants but Steven Spielberg (yes, that Steven Spielberg) participated in the creation of an X-Men comic once. It's actually really good. Also some other times that the X-Men helped kids in need.

Ep.46 - Me & Pizza Hut? We're Your Friends with Chris Sims
01:22:08

Episode Notes

Special, unintentially long episode of you guys this week. X-Men '92 co-writer, and podcaster who we stole the entire concept of this show from, Chris Sims joins us to talk about one thing, Arcade. Along the way we have some fantastic conversations about, well, most things X-Men.

Also Zack's mic broke right before recording this and he had to use his emergency back-up mic (not the double back-up which is a Rock Band USB mic, but stil) so sound quality isn't where we want it to be. Sorry.

Ranked this episode:
