The Mutant Ages – The Archangel Monologues

WARREN WORTHINGTON’S GONE. THERE IS ONLY ARCHANGEL NOW.

This excerpt is from a piece we call “The Archangel Monologues”, performed by Maddy and Ryan on their podcast, the Mutant Ages.

Archangel is a fallen death angel, an empty shell of who he was. We know because we read his online blog.


The Mutant Ages – X-Men: The Animated Series – Days of Future Past (Part 2)

Who’s the TRAITOR? Senator Kelly is DEAD! (Sort Of)

Ryan and Maddy check out the second half of X-Men: The Animated Series’ adaptation of Days of Future Past, and it’s a lot stronger than Part 1. This episode smooths over the rough edges of Bishop and Wolverine’s future together, plus it solidifies the threesome between Bishop, Wolverine and Gambit. And by “solidifies,” we mean, “it’s not canon, but come on. Just watch that poker scene!”

Anyway, this episode manages to juggle its many plot-lines and characters with ease. The only part we don’t like is the Blob. We talked about his portrayal in Pryde of the X-Men, and we don’t like it here either.

The Mutant Ages – X-Men TAS: Days of Future Past (Part 1)

This week, Maddy and Ryan watch Part 1 of X-Men: The Animated Series’ adaptation of Days of Future Past, and we get amped up about Wolverine’s butt. Even more than usual. You know who else is amped about Wolverine’s butt? Bishop! According to us.

The X-Men: TAS adaptation of Days of Future Past moves fast and takes some shortcuts through comic book canon. In this episode, Bishop acts like a total jerk and makes a bunch of impulsive mistakes, but is that really so different from his comic book incarnation? Ryan says no. Maddy ends up agreeing, but at the end of the episode, she still makes the case that Bishop has potential as a character and deserves more. More of Wolverine’s butt! But also better-written stories, and maybe even one of those Netflix shows or something.

The Mutant Ages – Professor Xavier is a JERK

PROFESSOR XAVIER IS A JERK.

Let Maddy and Ryan explain to you why, through this clip of the Mutant Ages!


The Mutant Ages – The Unstoppable Juggernaut

This week on Maddy and Ryan’s X-Men: The Animated Series rewatch, we meet Colossus, from Russia! You know he’s from Russia because he just can’t stop telling us that. We also meet the Juggernaut, who is the actual focus of this episode, not that we want him to be. Wolverine and Jubilee become besties with a killer sense of teamwork, but aside from that, this episode is a real snooze. Let us recap it for you (with jokes) so that you don’t have to watch it yourself, hm?

The Mutant Ages – Xavier & Magneto’s Backstory

In this clip from Maddy and Ryan’s podcast, the Mutant Ages, Xavier reveals his secret backstory with Magneto, where they role-played being doctors, until they revealed to each other “their powers”.

Listen to the full show!


The Mutant Ages – Slave Island

Maddy and Ryan discuss “Slave Island,” in which our X-Men: The Animated Series heroine Jubilee puts up with the worst vacation ever, thanks to Gambit. Storm also gets plenty of moments to shine in this episode, and she even gets a cute scene with her girlfriend Rogue. (According to the writers of the show, they’re not canonically dating, but they’re TOTALLY dating.) This episode also introduces us to Cable, everyone’s favorite bisexual time traveler. Maddy gets on a soapbox about the fact that Marvel won’t just let Cable and Deadpool date, so strap in for that.

The Mutant Ages – X-Men: The Animated Series – Deadly Reunions

Professor X is a jerk. Ryan and Maddy keep telling you that, but in this episode, it’s really astounding how much of a jerk he is! We’ve reached X-Men: The Animated Series’ fourth episode, “Deadly Reunions,” in which two pairs of boyfriends get reunited: Xavier and Magneto, plus Wolverine and Sabretooth. Except there’s one little problem with shipping Sabretooth and Wolverine: it might be incest, depending on varying comic book canons. Oof. Anyway, we’ll tell you all about it on this week’s THE MUTANT AGES!
