Gargoyles and X-Men CLASH in our upcoming Podcast!

What happens when Disney’s Gargoyles meets the X-Men? Tomorrow we are releasing the very first episode of our new podcast which focuses on just that — Massive self-insert fanfiction crossovers! Stay tuned tomorrow to learn more!

In the meantime, catch up in last week’s podcasts from Let’s Watch 2 Movies and The Mutant Ages, as they both recap Marvel related content — “Captain America: Civil War” and “The Unstoppable Juggernaut”!


Let’s Watch 2 Movies – Captain America: Civil War

Much like Batman v Superman, Captain America: Civil War feels stuck in 2016. Remember a year ago, when Steve Rogers’ mistrust of institutions made sense but it still seemed like he was taking it a bit too far? Now it’s 2017, and Maddy and Mary Ellen can totally see his side. We just want to run away with our brainwashed boyfriend Bucky and escape all of this.

This episode is long. Do we need to keep saying that? Anyway, tune in as Maddy spends way too much time talking about all the Avengers comics she has read, and Mary Ellen talks about the tiny personal moments in this film that make it more emotionally accessible than Batman v Superman.

Lastly, here’s the essay that Maddy mentions during an aside in the episode: sublimezoo.com/2016/05/17/black-…-death-civil-war/

The Mutant Ages – X-Men: The Animated Series – Captive Hearts

Finally, Storm gets to be in charge of the X-Men’s new mission in “Captive Hearts.” But first, she’ll have to endure Professor X being a huge jerk to her about her PTSD, to Maddy and Ryan’s chagrin. Is Professor X ever going to stop treating the X-Men like crap? Seriously, it’s like he can’t even hear us shouting at him through the screen! Anyway, this episode is all about the Morlocks, an “unsightly” band of mutants living in the New York City subway tunnels. They’re led by the nefarious and predatory Callisto, who kidnaps Cyclops and tries to make him her sex slave. This is a kids’ show, somehow.

The Mutant Ages – X-Men TAS: Enter Magneto

At last, Magneto has arrived to introduce some moral complexity to the world of X-Men: The Animated Series! Maddy liked this episode, but Ryan thought it needed another draft. The show writers went wild with the literary references this time, so get ready for some Shakespeare quotes. This week’s spotlight is on Magneto, who has a confusing and contradictory comic book history and is nonetheless one of Maddy and Ryan’s favorite mutants!


Mutant Ages – Night of the Sentinels Part 1

Ryan and Maddy’s second episode of The Mutant Ages features their first foray into X-Men: The Animated Series, with a big spotlight on Jubilee. Did you know that Jubilee is one of Ryan’s favorite X-Men? Anyway, this episode is already way longer than we planned for it to be, so bear with us. We had to analyze the opening credits of the show, okay? Enjoy!
