Zone 4 #402: Runaways, Redheads and Resurrections

The crew returns with a brand new episode of Zone 4!

This episode we talk way too much about The Orville, cover some comic book headlines, navigate through some segues, and round it out with a short in-depth discussion of Runaways #1!

There may or may not be a sidetrack on redheads in the Marvel Universe. Just sayin’.

If you enjoy the episode leave a comment and let us know! We had fun with this one, hopefully you do too!

ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 87: Celebrating the Women of X-Men

It’s no secret that the American left was rendered speechless on the night of November 8, 2016. What we hoped would be the year of the woman, that moment when Hillary Clinton became the most powerful female in the history of the world, ended up shocking us to the core. What remained in place of our idealism and hope was an inconvenient fact — despite outnumbering men, women were still an oppressed “minority,” forced to deal with slings and arrows long ago deemed inappropriate for males of most races and ethnicities. It is with this glaring fact in mind that ComicsVerse has dedicated our 87th episode to our favorite X-Men women.

Why Celebrate the X-Men Women Now?

It doesn’t matter which side of the political aisle you fall on. Heck, it doesn’t even matter if you’re not political at all. It’s obvious the west has some work to do when it comes to fairness between the two binary genders. Instead of arguing the point, we at ComicsVerse have decided to celebrate the point by celebrating the X-Men women: Kitty Pryde, Rogue, Mystique, Jean Grey, Storm, and Emma Frost.

What makes each of these ladies tick? How do they celebrate their femininity? What are their hopes, dreams, and fears? All this and more is discussed in episode 87 of the ComicsVerse Podcast — Celebrating the X-Men Women! Oh, and if your favorite female X-Man isn’t mentioned above, stay tuned to the end of the episode and our honorable mentions!

Keep in mind; this podcast is about celebrating our favorite X-Men women. In most cases, we’ve spent between two to four hours discussing each of these characters in their own right:

We hope you enjoy this episode, and we can’t wait to hear who some of your favorite X-Men women are!
