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?

Due to the holiday, there will be no new Mutant Ages this week. See you next week, or… See you X-TIME!!


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!


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!


The Mutant Ages – Night of the Sentinels (Part 2)

X-Men: The Animated Series gets real heavy in the second episode, because our heroes lose one of their own. Ahh, Morph, we hardly knew you! Ryan and Maddy do a spotlight on Morph’s comic book history, and then, analyze whether or not Wolverine and Morph were dating. Because we ask the important questions on The Mutant Ages.


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!
