Days of Future Podcast: Examining the X-Men

In their first ever video episode, Trev and Joe are x-amining the "Elite 8" of our annual Mutant March Madness tournament (which kicked off in episode 156 of the podcast). This time, it's a battle to determine the "Most Stylish Mutant." Join us as we decide whether Cable, Cyclops, Domino, Magik, Mister Sinister, Mojo, Storm, or Warlock will take this year's crown (or is it a trophy? As discussed in the episode, Trev doesn't know much about B-Ball). facebook.com/daysoffuturepodcast Twitter & Instagram: @dofpodcast

Days of Future Podcast: Examining the X-Men

It's time once again for our annual Mutant March Madness tournament. This time, we're pitting the costumes, designs, and overall "look" of 64 different mutant characters against each other. Which mutants do we believe are the most visually striking on the page? How important is an abundance of various costumes over the years versus one defining look? Is it better for villains to look "scary" or "cool?" All of this and more is considered, as we try to figure out which mutant is the most "stylish." Note: This episode was recorded over Zoom, which is not our usual protocol. Apologies in advance...

Did you hear it?? Did you hear Patrick Stewart's voice in the trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness?? Well, we sure did, and we're here to break down all the wild speculation this confirmation of Professor X appearing in the movie kicked off. What version of Xavier will this be? How big a role will Stewart play? Might James McAvoy come along, as well? And is this the first step toward soon seeing other X-Men characters in the MCU? We're covering it all, baby. But first, some discussion about whether X-Men comics should feel obligated to acknowledge real-world events, brief...

Days of Future Podcast: Examining the X-Men

After a holiday hiatus, we're back for a brand new season of Days of Future Podcast! That's right - it's our long-awaited third season premiere, and we're celebrating by sharing our overall thoughts on the state of the X-books as the "Reign of X" era, and Jonathan Hickman's time on the books, comes to a close. We briefly discuss both the "Trial of Magneto" and "Inferno" events, as well as our expectations and concerns about the upcoming post-Hickman world of the X-Men. This includes our takes on the new upcoming X-titles such as "Knights of X," "Sabretooth," "X-Men: Red," and "Immortal X-Men."...

It's the Spoopiest time of the year, so you know what that means - Trev and Joe once again trying to figure out just what a Halloween episode of this show should even be! Thankfully, this time we have not one but TWO Halloween related issues to discuss. First up is the recently released "X-Men #4," which sees Jean Grey doing psychic battle with the Doctor Strange villain Nightmare on the night before Halloween. Next up is "X-Men Unlimited Vol. 2, #1," from 2004, featuring a story about the students of Xavier Academy trick-or-treating, free of worries about being in public with their mutations...

Days of Future Podcast: Examining the X-Men

For our 150th episode spectacular, we're perhaps going the obvious route, and taking an in-depth look at "Uncanny X-Men #150," from October of 1981. On its 40th anniversary, we're taking a look at this classic tale from writer Chris Claremont and artist Dave Cockrum - a very famous and important chapter in the ongoing battle/relationship between the X-Men and their most important villain, Magneto. Is it still just as x-citing a read today as it was when first released? But first - discussion about the recent announcement of a Wolverine video game from the same studio that made the beloved...

Days of Future Podcast: Examining the X-Men

The comics world and X-Men fans in particular were recently rocked by the news that, upon the conclusion of his "Inferno" event, Jonathan Hickman will be entirely leaving the X-Books, much earlier than many were expecting. As the grand architect of this new era of the X-Men, Hickman has been a controversial figure in X-fandom, but there's no denying the impact he has had on the status quo of these characters and their world. So what does it mean when the man who has overseen it all, departs? We're here to discuss the potential fallout of this announcement, including whether we're worried about...

We're finally living in a post-NEW MUTANTS world, and to celebrate, Trev has decided to be nice and let Joe lead a deep dive into - to date - the ONLY solo title starring one of his favorite X-Men characters. So we're taking a look at 2004's "Jubilee," written by Robert Kirkman of THE WALKING DEAD and MARVEL ZOMBIES fame. In this superheroic take on teen high school dramedies, Jubilee moves in with her mysterious aunt in Los Angeles, and tries to deal with the everyday routine of being a normal high school student. Did Kirkman create a necessary piece of Jubilee canon here? We discuss this, and more...including Tye Sheridan's recent comments about an eventual Cyclops recasting, and what the upcoming THE BOYS spin-off series on Amazon has to do with the X-Men!
