Description Edit

In which Gossamyr definitely probably doesn’t get blown up; we engage in a long and surprisingly canon-based exploration of Hellfire Club bathroom etiquette; the New Mutants break up with Magneto; you should probably never go swimming in the Marvel Universe; and it is possible (but unlikely) that Jay yells “IMPERIUS REX” more than is strictly necessary.

Listener Questions Edit

  • Why do the X-Factor kids mostly have the same powers as the Brotherhood of Mutants? Rusty and Pyro, Rictor and Avalanche, Skids and Unus the Untouchable are all obvious. Also, arguably, Leech and Rogue, and Artie and Mastermind. Only Boom Boom is really not a copy of a Brotherhood member.
  • With the recent addition of Cerebra to the team, and you guys discussing Nimrod, I've been thinking about Sentinels being used for heroic purposes (see Tom Skylark and Rover, Karima Shapandar, Sentinel Squad O*N*E* and Juston Seyfert), or as a sometimes metaphor for gun control. I wanted to know what you thought of machines made specifically to hunt mutants being used for good. I know the mutant metaphor isn't perfect, but would the idea of heroic Sentinels be a problem to most mutants?
