Jimmy has tamed the beast that was San Diego Comic Con and survived to tell the tales! Here, you’ll hear his recap of the show. Just a few fun tidbits of what went down, people he met, celebs he saw, elbows he rubbed, parties, roundtable sessions, interviews, awesome press rooms, hotels, outside of Comic Con, and all of the madness! He mostly did press rooms but managed to get some 1:1 interviews as well. He chatted with the Clare Kramer (“Glory” on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) about her new documentary that she directed called Joyrider. He also talked to pop star Lights about her upcoming album Skin & Earth and the comic book mini-series she created/wrote/drew/colored/lettered/etc. that coincides with it. On the last day of the con, he conversed with Shannon Wheeler about his new book Sh*t My President Says as well as his past work. And finally, Jimmy had his annual therapy session interview with clinical psychologist pal Dr. Andrea Letamendi discussing superheroes, Star Wars, and real life issues.

Starting next week and the following few weeks after, there will be no regular format shows. Only SDCC press room specials. Jimmy needs that long just to recover from all of the craziness that is Comic Con International. You will hear roundtables for Inhumans, Wynonna Earp, Doctor Who, Legends of Tomorrow, Batman and Harley Quinn, Dirk Gently, Supergirl, Dark Matter, Battlestar Galactica reunion, Gotham, iZombie, Justice League Action, Lucifer and Teen Titans Go! He missed some rooms that he wanted to cover but boy howdy did he still cover a lot!

Episode 92: X-Men, “The Dream” Part 3: Was Emma Right?

INHUMANS VS. X-MEN: Was Emma Frost Right? SPOILERS AHEAD!

Marvel’s INHUMANS VS. X-MEN, published in 2017, ended in an unexpected twist when circumstances revealed Emma Frost manipulated the war between both sides. Cyclops died in DEATH OF X from the deadly M-Pox virus. This happened not long after Cyclops killed Professor Xavier while possessed by the Phoenix Force. The deaths and/or new paths of Magneto, Professor Xavier, Cyclops, and Apocalypse left the mutant message in disarray.

A New Leader for a New Time?

Whoever would emerge as the new ideological inspiration behind the X-Men would require a powerful message. Cyclops, ever the mutant revolutionary, redefined Xavier’s dream after his death. Emma Frost, a former villain, chose to lie to everyone. She made them believe the Inhuman Black Bolt killed Cyclops on orders from Medusa. Emma Frost manipulated Scott Summers’ death into a battle cry catalyzing the X-Men into going to war against the Inhumans. To paraphrase Emma Frost’s words, she made his death matter. She turned him into an idea.

INHUMANS VS. X-MEN Mirrors Society’s Embrace of Alternative Facts

Like the inventor of the phrase, Emma Frost also falls prey to broadcasting alternative facts.

Kellyanne Conway possesses a great intellect. However, let’s remain honest, Conway is no Emma Frost in that regard. What the two women have in common includes two things: using mass media, or in Emma’s case telepathy, to broadcast a message and broadcasting a message sourced with alternative facts.

In the current political climate in the United States and the West, the rise of populism and the fleecing of voter information make it difficult to discern fact from fiction. Often times, deliberate misinformation spread to a populace seems to incite actions otherwise not considered.

LISTEN: Hear part one of our podcast X-Men, “The Dream.”

INHUMANS VS. X-MEN represents an extraordinary superhero version of today’s political events. For her own gain, Emma Frost uses her own people to purport an unnecessary aggressive agenda. This agenda only suits Emma Frost.

Emma Frost’s Defeat

Both the X-Men and the Inhumans defeat Emma Frost after she attempts the unforgivable. Emma appears to want to use mutant-killing sentinels and reprogram them to kill Inhumans. She sets her plan in motion. Most noteworthy, what makes this moment powerful relates to Emma Frost’s relationship with sentinels.

In Grant Morrison’s NEW X-MEN run, sentinels killed millions of mutants on the island of Genosha where Emma taught. Emma endured genocide against mutants, leaving her psychologically damaged forever. For Emma Frost to use sentinels to fight Inhumans, she must have gone to a dark place in her soul.

Before the Inhumans or the X-Men have an opportunity to punish Emma, Cyclops’s brother Havok seems to somehow teleport Emma to safety. Later, we see Emma wearing a helmet that looks exactly like Cyclops’s visor. Emma lost touch with reality.

A New Dawn, and a New Day for the X-Men Metaphor

After Emma Frost, Kitty Pryde takes over in X-Men Gold #1

The fact things change makes the X-Men Universe a hopeful one. Many comics mire in a particular character or set up. They tell the same story time after time. X-Men always remained an exception to this rule. While the events of INHUMANS VS. X-MEN gave rise to a new normal, I can only hope the same thing happens in real life.

READ: ComicsVerse reviews X-MEN GOLD #1.

Our podcast series X-Men, “the Dream” examines real world applications for different X-Men ideologies. In addition, last year’s episode dealt with Xavier’s Dream versus Magneto’s Dream. Finally, this year we focus more on Magneto’s Dream, Emma Frost’s war with the Inhumans, and Cyclops’s role as a mutant revolutionary.
