X-Men (1992): Come the Apocalypse

Join Scott and Hamish as they delve deep into the character of Apocalypse and break down the classic episode of the X-Men 1992 animated series entitled "Come the Apocalypse"! Listen as they discuss Apocalypse from his beginnings as Louise Simonson's leader of the "Alliance of Evil" in X-Factor #5 to his feature film debut in "X-Men: Apocalypse". They'll also review his four horsemen in their original forms, including the shocking transformation of Angel to Archangel in this episode, as well as the comic books. They'll also talk about the incredible anime intro that only aired in Japan (plus with some closing credits elsewhere), the ToyBiz line of action figures that was sometimes tied to the show, and a whole bunch of funny moments from the cartoon. And if that wasn't enough, Scott also plays a clip of an X-Men skit he recorded as a little kid. So put on your yellow spandex, leave Morph behind, and enjoy the show!

Captain America: Civil War (Comics and Trailers)

Join Scott and his guests, Kevin, and Civil War comics expert, Chet, as they delve deep and gear up for the much anticipated release of the latest movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: "Captain America: Civil War"! They'll first breakdown the seven-part Civil War comic book miniseries by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, released in 2006, and theorize what story elements may be translated to the screen, what may be changed, and what the volumes of supplemental Civil War comics material add to this story. Then, they breakdown the two major Civil War movie trailers, and discuss how these scenes relate to the previous films of the MCU as well as the original comics source material. (As well as the first looks at Black Panther and Spider-Man!) Will there be another "Stamford incident"? Will another hero die? How will the character of Spider-Man be used in this story? Will Crossbones kill Captain America? All of these questions are tacked, and much much more! So step out of your cryonic containment, brush your perfect teeth, and enjoy the show! (After all, we could do this all day.)

Join Shawn and Scott as they discuss an 80's Saturday morning gem: The rarely seen (or heard of) animated X-Men pilot for NBC! Listen as Scott gives a condensed history of the X-Men in animation, Shawn addresses recent news of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and both recount a Spider-Man voter registration PSA with great confusion. Why does Wolverine speak with an Australian accent? (Yes, really.) Why aren't most of the X-Men dead at the end of this episode? What's up with Kitty Pryde's parents? These questions, and more, get tackled like a powered-up Magneto! We tried like thunder, and now this episode is coming your way!
