Oh no, I missed mean ol’ Professor Xavier’s class last week, and now we’re all stuck in detention! And he’s forcing the whole class to judge his original five students against each other by some very scientific criteria: Powers! Fighting skill! Teamwork! Good roommate qualities! Teenage angst! Hanging a wall photo! Hosting a Canadian talk show a la Mike Bullard! Tax evasion! And MORE! So pull up a chair and listen along as we definitively rank the first class of The X-Men, and in the process decide once and for all which of these five Old Mutants is the worst original X-Man of all! Is it Angel? There’s only one way to find out!!
And in the warm-up, we finally talk about The Marvels! What did we think of the latest chapter of the never-ending MCU? Did it deserve better than the box office delivered? What does it under-performance say about the state of superhero cinema and its ever-growing budgets and profit projections? How does it line up in The Timeline vis-a-vis Disney+’s Marvel’s “Secret Invasion”? Does Captain Marvel fight Shao Khan!? And where’d all those Flerken go? Let’s talk all about it!
