X-Men: Days of Future Past

Join Scott as he delves deep into the bleak dystopian future of the classic X-Men story: Days of Future Past! Listen as he compares and contrasts its original telling in the Uncanny X-Men comic books, the loose adaptation of the animated series Wolverine and the X-Men and the film X-Men: Days of Future Past, with an especially close look at the three episode arc from Fox's X-Men the animated series. What commonalities do these versions share? Why does Apocalypse always seem to pop up in these adaptations? Is this story just a Terminator rip-off? All these questions are answered and more! Plus an "interview" with "Stan Lee"! So transfer your mind elsewhere for a little while and enjoy the show!
