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!
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!
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.
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!
