Needless Things Podcast 109 – X-Men

May 26th, 2016
PhantomTroublemaker, Beth, and Chad J. Shonk discuss Marvel’s MerryMutants – the X-Men!

Overthe years the corner of the Marvel Universe that was not occupied bythe Avengers has been a place of almost constant change. Evolution,one might say. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby started the adventures of theoriginal team of outcast teenagers back in 1963 and the moniker“X-Men” has included many different teams and characters sincethen.

Thepopularity of the mutants was such that Hollywood made them one ofthe first success stories of the comic book movie boom. We’ve beengetting movies with “X” in the title since 200, with wildlyvarying degrees of quality but almost universal success. The newestentry – X-Men:Apocalypse– comes out today and looks to be one of the most divisive entriesso far!

Listenin as Beth, Chad, and Phantom discuss the evolution of theirindividual X-Men fandom and the success – or lack thereof – ofthe various movie adaptations!
