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:
- Episode 63: Storm – The Most Recognizable Black Superhero
- Episode 54: The Origins of Emma Frost
- Episode 40: Strong Comic Book Females: Rogue
- Episode 5: “Jean Grey as Metaphor” — “The Dark Phoenix Saga.”
We hope you enjoy this episode, and we can’t wait to hear who some of your favorite X-Men women are!
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.
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.
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!
In this episode of the ComicsVerse podcast, Marlene Bonnely, editor-in-chief of Comics.Tumblr.com and personality at iLikeComicsToo.com, stops by to discuss X-Men’s Rogue in-depth. We cover everything from her time as an Avengers villain and member of the Brotherhood of Mutants to Rogue’s joining the X-Men and romances with Gambit and Magneto. Finally, we conclude with Rogue’s time on Mike Carey’s run of X-MEN: LEGACY and UNCANNY AVENGERS.
Appearing in this podcast from ComicsVerse is: Justin Gilbert Alba, Josh Cui and Tom Bacon.
