ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 76: X-Men “The Dream”

Thirty-one years after I picked up my first comic book, we recorded this podcast on the day I turned thirty-seven. As they say the planet Jupiter does every twenty-eight years, in many ways my experience with comics made a full revolution around my life. The beginning of this journey filled me with curiosity, wonder, and life lessons I never found in any other form of media, and the circle completed itself not too long after I had the opportunity to interview the most prolific X-Men writer ever—Chris Claremont.

LISTEN: ComicsVerse interviews X-Men writer Chris Claremont!

Joined by my friend, ComicsVerse X-Men writer and podcast co-host Marius Thienenkamp, Episode 76 of the ComicsVerse Podcast, “X-Men: The Dream,” explored the significance of the metaphor of the X-Men both in and outside of comics through discussions of race, sexuality, inequality, and “othering” in western civilization.  Podcast panelists Jamie Rice, Kay Honda, Nolan Bensen, and Corey Spanner weighed in on parallels between historical activists like Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and Gandhi which lead to conversations about dominant cultural hierarchies and the nature of humanity itself.

X-Men comics and characters are rife with meaning and serve as a mirror of how society treats anyone who is, and feels, different and how those same people cope in a world that hates and fears them. The concept of the X-Men served as a perfect platform during this podcast to embark on an analysis of American culture as a microcosm of human nature and what it ultimately means to be American.

HEAR: Want more X-Men analysis? These podcasts are all X-Men related!

As someone who read X-Men comics their entire life, I thought of no better birthday gift than to celebrate the medium and series that gave me, and continues to give me, the most hope and feeling. I am lucky in that I was able to hold such a conversation with such wonderful close friends, colleagues, and caring individuals.

ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 71: X-Men’s AGE OF APOCALYPSE

The ComicsVerse Podcast team has assembled to bring you, the listener, an in-depth discussion on the X-Men crossover, “Age of Apocalypse,” just in time for the upcoming film, X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, due out on May 27th.

Be warned: The combined forces of Justin and Chris may have broken the ComicsVerse all-time record for profanities used on a podcast. It could even be suggested that, using the variety of colorful words that would make a Sailor uncomfortable, one could in theory, turn it into a drinking game. There’s plenty of material to work with.

LISTEN: Director Josh Boone is set to direct the next X-Men spinoff film — NEW MUTANTS! Hear to the podcast all about the comic series!

The ComicsVerse crew covers the entire run of the 1995–1996 crossover, providing everything from summaries of this nine-title event to an exploration of the deeper themes and tropes “Age of Apocalypse” provides.

The story itself begins when Professor X’s son, Legion, goes back in time and kills Magneto, believing it was the only way to truly achieve his father’s dream of peaceful coexistence between mutants and humans. His trip, though, is ill-fated: Instead of killing Magneto, he kills his father, which (in true X-Men fashion) completely misplaces and changes the original timeline and the lives of our favorite mutants, as well as the entire Marvel landscape.

HEAR: If you’re an X-Men fan, we have a podcast all about Storm!

This complete reversal of the original X-Men timeline creates a post-apocalyptic world, brought on by none other than Apocalypse himself. This new timeline completely changes the landscape of the prominent characters of the time: Cyclops and Beast emerge as villains and Magneto as a hero and the leader of the X-Men (on top of being Rogue’s husband). Most of the other Marvel heroes, like Spider-Man, are dead, while others, like Carol Danvers, never receive their powers. “Age of Apocalypse” completely changed the status quo of Marvel characters at the time.

So what are you waiting for? Press that “play” button and listen in for what should be an extremely entertaining podcast! We hope you enjoy!
