Maddy and Ryan have loved watching the first season of X-Men Evolution, but this season finale was... so freakin' weird. Magneto has kidnapped and/or coerced the strongest mutants he knows onto Asteroid M, and now he wants them to step into his special glowing pink chamber, which will elevate their mutant powers. But that's not all it does! If you'…

Who even is Magneto on X-Men Evolution? Apparently, he's just Mr. Sinister, which means Maddy and Ryan aren't sure how to feel about him. In "The Cauldron Part 1," Scott learns his brother Alex was alive all these years, and so naturally, Xavier wants to recruit him. Magneto gets there first, but who knows how he found the time or resources to do t…
 
Ryan and Maddy revisit Weapon X (again) in X-Men Evolution, although this show's writers seem just as disinterested in this particular storyline as we are. The framing device here is Kitty writing a LiveJournal entry (a.k.a. an email to her parents)about her and Kurt sneaking onto the Blackbird to follow Wolverine to Canada while he has a panic att…
 
"Shadowed Past" is a real tearjerker of an episode, all about how Mystique feels like she can't be a good mother... and maybe she's right. Maddy and Ryan cried along with Rogue and Kurt for this sad journey through the psyche of Mystique, who finally reveals to Kurt that she's his mom, not that it goes particularly well. It may all sound heavy, but…
 
Maddy and Ryan recorded a super-long listener feedback episode this week, featuring questions about Magneto and Xavier's politics and whether they would still work in a modern adaptation, analysis of which X-Men remind us most of ourselves, and also, listing off our favorite comics about Storm. The episode concludes, as always, with another thrilli…

Game Master Sean Jaffe weaves the crew through a brand new adventure in this 15-part weekly series. Scott Tofte as Leonardo Adam Sheehan as Michaelangelo Chr…
 
Welcome to the Mutant Ages podcast, where we unceremoniously ring in our 100th episode by talking about Wolverine and Nightcrawler slashfiction. Okay, so we didn't realize this was our 100th episode while we recorded it, but it's still pretty special, right? So anyway, X-Men Evolution's "Survival of the Fittest" is about Mystique breaking Juggernau…
 
Episode Notes Patti and Jonathan discuss the miniseries, Pixie Strikes Back, the one-shot, X-Men vs. Dracula, and do so with lots of toilet humor. Jonathan tells a six-minute duck story and Patti tells a six-second duck story. There is a lot of fun on this episode, but Jonathan finds a deeper, personal connection to Pixie’s plight at the end of her…
 
In "SpykeCam," Spyke's history teacher gives him a video camera and he immediately uses it to blow up Logan's spot with Sabretooth. And also to make gay music videos in the woods behind the X-Mansion. In other words, Spyke does exactly what Ryan and Maddy did with a video camera when they were his age. This episode is so gay, and sure, we say that …

In "Turn of the Rogue," Professor Xavier finally reveals that he's a huge liar, although he takes his damn time to do it. Still, we're surprised he did it at all! Rogue gets her big turn in the spotlight this episode, showing off her martial arts skills as well as the fact that she can drive a snowmobile(???). Cyclops gets to be the damsel in distr…

Get ready for another conversation about queer villains, because Pietro Maximoff is here, he's queer, and he's got a big crush on Evan Daniels, a.k.a. Spyke. We're finally back on solid ground with an X-Men Evolution episode that isn't actively upsetting, plus it's a Storm-centric episode, since new character Spyke is her nephew. Ryan and Maddy get…

Ryan and Maddy dig into their email inbox, Twitter mentions, and Discord conversations for some discussions about Mystique and Mr. Sinister's queerness, mental health metaphors in the X-Men, and the question of how the MCU's reboot of the X-Men would portray a character like Magneto, now that we're getting so far away from World War II in our real-…

Find out on the summer series f…
 
In the fourth episode of X-Men: Evolution, we get introduced to Fred "The Blob" Dukes. This starts out as a promising story about someone who pushes back against his bullies, but then it spirals off into fatphobic garbage and negative stereotypes about fat people.

Rogue has finally arrived, sugah dumplings, and she has two moms. Two terrible, terrible moms. Professor Xavier would be a better parent, but not by a lot, because he still sucks in this episode. Rogue has to figure things out for herself, as usual. The results are still pretty bad-ass even though she's just a kid.X-Men Spotlight: Destiny, a.k.a. I…

Episode Notes Patti and Jonathan discuss koalas, Scrubs, and X-Men: Deadly Genesis.

Who’s trying to get that Wonder Bread? Find out on this episode of Mutant Musings! Show Notes …
 
Enter Kitty Pryde and her valley girl accent on the second episode of X-Men: Evolution. Ryan and Maddy love Kitty even if she has, like, a totally tubular speech pattern.

Ryan and Maddy settle in for the debut episode of X-Men: Evolution! But first, some reminiscing about the political climate during the time period that this show came out, and also our own experiences as teenagers watching this show. X-Men: Evolution is much more overt about its queer analogy, and also, it's just a damn good show. Oh... by the way?…

What is a nightmare bubble? Who eats the dead bodies on Krakoa? Find out on this episode of Mutant Musings! Show Notes New Mutants #11 X-Factor #1 Marauder…
 
It finally happened... We watched X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The 2009 exploration of Wolverine's origins disappointed us at the time, and it disappoints us so much more in 2020. With Todd Harper's help, Ryan and Maddy tear apart this notoriously bad movie, which is impressive only in the sense that it manages to offend just about everybody.Next week…
 
The Green Team, along with new ally Alopex, is off to investigate some shady dealings over in Chinatown.

Maddy and Ryan finally close the book on X-Men: The Animated Series with the second half of the show's two-part crossover with Spider-Man The Animated Series. It's a very entertaining send-off.

Back in September 1995, the Spider-Man animated series did a crossover with X-Men: The Animated Series, starting with Spider-Man learning he's mutating and then going to Professor Xavier for help. Unfortunately, instead of just calling Xavier on the phone, Spider-Man breaks into the X-Mansion, and for some reason he's surprised that the X-Men attac…

Last but not least, we have the second issu…

At long last, Maddy and Ryan called Wolverine. Or at least, we called the best-known originator of the character's voice, Cal Dodd, the actor who voiced Logan on X-Men: The Animated Series. We talked to him about Wolverine's emotional vulnerability, the ways that X-Men: TAS refused to shy away from politics, the fact that Cal is a Storm/Wolverine s…

Now that Ryan and Maddy have finished watching all of X-Men: The Animated Series, they can look back on the series as a whole and evaluate it.

We also talk about our personal lives over the pa…
 
Magneto was... right?! We knew that, but we didn't expect X-Men: The Animated Series to tell us that. In the show's stirring series finale, Professor Xavier gets attacked on live television by known mutant hater Henry Gyrich, and Magneto rallies mutants to fight back against the system that has been trying to kill them. When the laws are unjust, yo…

What's it like to be the only mutant in a small town in Kentucky? Pretty bad, as it turns out. X-Men: The Animated Series gives us another depressing but realistic analogy for queerness in "Hidden Agendas," plus a storyline about a renegade military off-shoot that convinces the residents of Cumberland, Kentucky to become even more bigoted than they…
