In episode 64 of The Electric Shadows Podcast, Robs Daniel and Wallis show remarkable restraint in largely eschewing X-related puns as they discuss Dark Phoenix.
But, they do talk about the long, windy road of this 19-year-old franchise, why in some ways it is superior to the MCU, where it has stumbled, and what they think of the latest instalment.
Which, of course, is a retelling of a plot events previously visited in X-Men: The Last Stand (AKA, the Brett Ratner one, AKA the black sheep of the X-franchise, but actually containing good stuff and certainly better than X-Men: Origins – Wolverine).
They also rank the entire series best to worst and make room for favourite moments.
So, pop your headphones on and let us X-cite you. Damn, almost made it to the end!
