X is for Podcast #131 – 1984: The New Mutants, Kitty Pryde, & The Hellions During Wartime!
Nico and Jonah are back for an all new season of X is for Podcast, and this time they’ve brought along their newest co-host, Matty! The team takes a look at the story that changed everything; with the X-Men away in the Secret Wars, Kitty Pryde takes front and center! The trio discusses the elements of the Secret Wars that affect the X-Men, namely the love lives of Magneto and Colossus, both men of metal contrasted against romance and betrayal. Then, back on earth, Kitty Pryde & the New Mutants are going through their own coming of age… and it’s not pretty. The New Mutants, Kitty, & Doug Ramsey find themselves against the Hellions, Emma Frost of the Hellfire Club’s newest squadron of goons, in a battle for the future of mutantkind. Yeah, it’s sort of that big. But moreover, the team takes a look at the social issues, realities, and complexities of examining a story from 35 years ago that continues to hold up! All this and more on an all new X is for Podcast! Read along with Secret Wars 1-12 (relevant cutdown pages available on Twitter) & New Mutants 15-17.
