Bear in mind the new Superman movie hadn't come out yet when we recorded this one, obviously.

Also, I think I messed up and called Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy DC's Guardians of the Universe, or vice-versa.

And the podcastx@hotmail.com e-mail is apparently "broken" again; if anyone has any comments, you can just leave them here on the blog as always.

It's OK, Johnny. You're fucking dead now. You will hurt no more.

I think Magneto's never been a villain. He's a former terrorist, yes, but Xavier's a fucking dick!

I listen to this podcast called Children of the Atom where they go through each issue of the X-men, from the beginning. Prof X is such an asshole, using his powers to do horrible things.

Why is Magneto the bad guy? Because he thinks humans suck? We do suck! Even in a world of superheroes and villains, they still manage to be horrendous. Magneto was right. Cyclops was right.

In Magneto's defense, he never blatantly lusted after a teenaged redhead like "Chuck" Xavier did. Not that I blame him, of course.

And Marvel really needs to make and sell those "Magneto Was Right" t-shirts from Grant Morrison's run on the book. http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lkb3bt3hdK1qzzvp9.jpg

You have to remember that Charles Xavier seems to be old because of his bald head and advanced education, but the bald head is from his mutant powers and in comics people get advanced educations at ridiculously young ages, so lusting after Jean wasn't anywhere near as appropriate as it would seem.

Of course, nowadays, so much history is retconned into his past that he must have been old at the time just to have had all that history, but it wasn't back when that story was written.

I think Claremont had both the Professor and Magneto running around during World War II (or maybe Korea); either that or I'm confusing them with Reed and Ben from the FF, who were once definitely supposed to have been in WWII somehow.

Whatever Xavier's age, he's running buddies with Mags, and he was a holocaust era kid.

Magneto tried to revolutionize the world, while Xavier sniffed the panties of his first female student.

Considering how hot Jean was back in the day (and slutty to boot, judging by how she wasted no time making out with Hank McCoy in the new Bendis book), who can blame Xavier?

Unless they retconned it, Magnus was born in the 1920's and Xavier are suppose to be old enough to serve in the Korean War.

Magneto was de-aged to a baby by Alpha, The Ultimate Mutant. Then aged to his prime by Erik the Red.

Charles Xavier is a clone. Killed by the Brood, soul transferred into a newer clone. Implied to be a younger body.

I thought I was the only one who remembered those old pre-Steve Gerber Defenders books.

And I just can't believe they gave Magneto his own series. What about Doctor Fucking DOOM?!

I never read those Defenders, I first learn about Magneto being turned into a baby from other X-books.

Didn't they give Doom a limited series. He killed. ba rump bump.

Dr. Doom is Marvel' greatest villain. On that basis, he should have a book of his own. I mean, they already gave Dracula his own series, right?!
