Jean Grey’s lost it.
Mastermind’s been making her think she’s in the past, she’s been smooching dudes she shouldn’t be smooching, and now the Phoenix Force has moved in and I don’t think she can handle it.
All this while the X-Men fight fancy folks and aliens in the conclusion of the Dark Phoenix Saga from Uncanny X-Men #133-137.
And in All Star Superman #3, we meet some jerks!
Next Time: The Flintstones #1-6
The first appearances of Kitty Pryde, Dazzler, AND Emma Frost? The Dark Phoenix Saga is a story so big, we wouldn’t dream of trying to contain it in one episode.
We read the first half in Uncanny X-Men #129-132 and watched as Scott Summers couldn’t handle Jean’s smoochin’ ways.
And in All-Star Superman #2, what’s hidden in Superman’s secret room?!?!?!
Next Time: We finish the Dark Phoenix Saga with Uncanny X-Men #133-137 (with an option for #138)!
In 2009, after the abomination of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, who would have thought the Wolverine trilogy would rise from the ashes like a phoenix to bring us Logan, one of the best superhero movies of all time.
In this spoiler-filled episode, we discuss the whole Wolverine “trilogy” and how Logan and Origins have remarkably similar beats (only one movie is, you know, good). We also reflect on Hugh Jackman’s 17-year tenure as James Howlett/Logan/Wolverine. And what scenes in Logan made us cry (spoiler alert: it’s different for each of our panelists)!
Plus the answers to questions you didn’t even know you needed to know about Wolverine’s healing factor!

Old Man Hawkeye. I mean… wait… Old Man Logan, a comic book about Venom-Dinos, Dumb Hulks, and the Red Skull doing creepy Captain America cosplay. And Wolverine was kind of in it too.
It’s a goofball buddy comedy road trip for the ages!
X-Men: Apocalypse comes out this week, and to celebrate the X-Men film series’ Sweet 16, we’re ranking the previous 5 X-Men films (and discussing the 3 spinoff films). What’s the worst? What’s the best?
Also, who’s really to blame for the failure of The Last Stand (which turns 10 years old today)? And we discuss screenwriter Simon Kinberg’s penchant for burning bridges (in both The Last Stand and Apocalypse). And what X-Man would be the best Pokémon?
