Let Your Geek Sideshow presents… Then & Now– a pop culture podcast!

To me, my listeners! This week, we are delving into the evolution of one of the most beloved superhero teams of all time- the X-Men. This team of marginalized mutants has become a symbol for acceptance and understanding across pop culture, inspiring generations of fans through comics, beloved cartoons, and a number of films.

While not every version of their story has lived up to its fullest potential, it’s clear that the love for Marvel’s mighty mutants only continues to grow with each new era of Xavier’s dream for coexistence. These characters inspire us to stand up and embrace our uniqueness, because that is our true strength.

From the massive House of X and Powers of X events going on right now at Marvel Comics, to the highly-anticipated future of the mighty mutants on film as a result of the Fox acquisition by Disney, it’s clear that Wolverine, Storm, Jean Grey, and all the rest of our favorites are set to change and adapt in never-before-seen ways.

Let’s unlock the X-Gene and discuss X-Men, Then & Now.
