Fangirl and I are back with the second part of our 20 Questions session! This time we tackle what makes a great X-Men story, if the Jean Grey love triangle is really a thing, Magneto’s history as a survivor of the Holocaust, and more!
As a complement to our weekly HiX-Men Report, Fangirl and I assembled on our own to tackle 20 big questions about the X-Men.
Part of what makes the Report so unique is that Fangirl is a relatively new X-Men reader, despite being a voracious consumer of thousands of comics each year. She comes to every issue of Hickman’s X-Men with fresh eyes, but we don’t get to tackle every one of her X-questions in our panel format. Also, as someone who has been making guides aimed at new X-Men fans for almost a decade, I also had some questions for Fangirl’s fresh eyes!
In this first of four episodes, we talk Magneto’s helmet, the Phoenix Force, the best leader of mutantkind, and more!
The HiX-Men Report had a lot to say about Powers of X (2019) #2! This issue revealed more about the mysterious 100 Years future of the mutant race, and the direction that the 1000 Years future is headed towards. Get ready for a deep dive dissection of every scene!
House of X (2019) #2 was billed as one of the most important X-Men issues of all time. Was this major retcon an amazing revelations or just another complication? Fangirl, Zach, Tyler, and I dissect it for you page by page (especially the big “data page” at the end of the issue) in a pair of videos to make sure you don’t miss a single detail.
Fangirl, Zach, and I are back to dissect the second of Jonathan Hickman’s intertwined X-Men series, Powers of X– which is meant to be read out loud as “Powers of 10.” This first issue visits four different points on the X-Men timeline – Year 1, Present Day, 100 Years, and 1,000 Years.
This week Marvel released the first issue of Jonathan Hickman’s epic X-Men relaunch. What was it about? Was it any good? Join me, frequent conspirator FanGirl, and my newly-found fellow dupe from an unknown Madrox Zach as we dig into House of X (2019) #1
