Needless Things Podcast 109 – X-Men

Phantom Troublemaker, Beth, and Chad J. Shonk discuss Marvel’s Merry Mutants – the X-Men!

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

The popularity of the mutants was such that Hollywood made them one of the first success stories of the comic book movie boom. We’ve been getting movies with “X” in the title since 200, with wildly varying degrees of quality but almost universal success. The newest entry – X-Men: Apocalypse – comes out today and looks to be one of the most divisive entries so far!

Listen in as Beth, Chad, and Phantom discuss the evolution of their individual X-Men fandom and the success – or lack thereof – of the various movie adaptations!
