Daunted by complex continuity? Can’t tell a mutate from a warpie? We are here for you. We have trained for this responsibility for decades. We have the backissues, the calluses, and a really detailed map of the Summers family tree.



We’ve been explaining the X-Men informally for years–to our friends and family, to the Internet, and, occasionally, to patient strangers on the street. Now, we’re making it official, with Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men: a weekly podcast dedicated to unpacking the weird, wonderful world of our favorite superhero soap opera for newcomers and die-hard fans alike.

I can't believe I've never reviewed this!

I've been listening to this podcast since day one. I may sometimes fall behind, but I always catch up. Jay and Miles have a great rapport and provide a sense of balance in their approach to the material, and I appreciate how both hosts are willing to examine the significance and implications of this beloved comic book material and ask important questions (some of which we may never answer) and still have fun doing it.

While I don't do it myself, the way the episodes are structured also means you can skip episodes that follow X-Books you aren't interested in, but I will say Jay & Miles have made even stuff I thought I would never care about - like Cable and X-Force - interesting to me! Now I never have to read those comics (except sometimes the show makes me seek them out after all. I do occasionally skip a live episodes or an interview with an artist or writer, if I am not interested in the people involved. But the all-in or pick choose approach both seem well served by this podcast
