Episode DescriptionEdit

In which we persevere in the face of adversity; Storm goes on a quest; Mr. Sinister makes his first appearance; Dazzler learns about teamwork (again); it still sucks to be Havok (but not as much as it sucks to be Madelyne Pryor); you should probably put down that cactus; the Murder Grampas join Freedom Force; Storm’s life is a metal-album cover; and the X-Men are doomed as hell.

Listener Questions Edit

  • I was wondering if either or both of you generally call the X-Men by code names or by their real names? I know it's always Scott, Jean, and Kitty for me, but I tend to stick with code names like Storm, Gambit, and Beast. I'm not sure what it means exactly, but I was just wondering if you or other X-fans x-perience the same thing?
  • I'm currently working on a men's wear fashion collection inspired by the women of the X-Men universe. I'm fascinated especially with Dazzler's recent character redesign both esthetically and from a story perspective. Are there other examples of X-women undergoing dramatic esthetic transformations in terms of their wardrobe that you could point me towards? And what's your take on the Dazzler makeover?
