Phil and Lisa Ruin the Movies 39: Phil and Lisa Ruin the X-Men Draft

In this crossover with episode 480 of The Incomparable, Phil and Lisa break down the draft choices made in the X-Men draft. It not you, it Gambit.

The Incomparable 480: The Whole McCoy

Jason’s commitment to drafting things as a lifestyle continues in this episode, in which he’s joined by six panelists to draft X-Men from across movies, TV, and comics. The goal is to form a four-person X-Team, complete with names. Along the way we learn a lot about childhood loves, softball, vampires, the basics of German, and how the coolest and worst X-Men can co-exist.

Biff! 15: Growing up super

We continue our hiatus between shows filled with freeform topics. This week, we discuss the superhero media that we grew up with—TV shows, movies, comics, even books!—and how it shaped our involvement with the genre. Then, a brief Superhero Sweep touches on the new new Suicide Squad movie, and in our Letters Page we transplant a Star Trek episode into the superhero genre.

If you’re looking for a way to support the show, have you considered a lovely shirt?

The Incomparable 303: Kitty's in Space Now

We celebrate all of mutantkind with a broad discussion of Marvel’s Uncanny X-Men, especially the versions we grew up reading in comics. What makes their outsider status resonate? Where should new readers start? And we choose some of our favorite X-Men characters in a sequence of choices that is definitely not a draft.

The Incomparable 6: Go Ahead, Lisa, Destroy My Childhood

Comic Book Club returns! This week we talk about TV adaptations of comic books, TV shows inspired by comic books, comic books that would make good TV shows, and more. Plus, random discussion of X-Men Annuals, the Micronauts, and why Reed Richards is a douche (in X-Men Annual #5, anyway).
