    "SpykeCam," X-Men Evolution

    "SpykeCam," X-Men Evolution

    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 every week, but for real this time.

    "Turn of the Rogue," X-Men Evolution

    "Turn of the Rogue," X-Men Evolution

    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 distress, and also, Magneto makes a great cameo in this one. X-Men Evolution is a fun show.

    "Speed and Spyke," X-Men: Evolution

    "Speed and Spyke," X-Men: Evolution

    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 to analyze some hard-hitting queer metaphors in this one, as well as the Evan/Pietro ship that was probably popular with queer teen viewers at the time. Meanwhile, Xavier remains the show's most haunting antagonist.

    Listener Mail, September 2020

    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-life timeline. We conclude, as always, with another thrilling issue of The Mutant Ages: The Comic Book, featuring... Cable! Time travel is real!!

    "Mutant Crush," X-Men: Evolution

    "Mutant Crush," X-Men: Evolution

    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. Maddy and Ryan would not recommend that you watch this episode! But please enjoy us tearing it apart... including Ryan's mic sounding a bit blown out the entire time because we had to use backup equipment (and also we were yelling, because we were mad, because this episode is f****d up). Stick around to the end of the episode for a very special segment featuring some insights about bullying via Ryan's sister, who works as a guidance counselor.
