X-Aspirations Episode 017
X-Men #17, February 1966
“…And None Shall Survive!”
Story by Stan Lee, Layouts by Jack Kirby, Pencils by Jay Gavin, Inked by Dick Ayers, Lettered by Art Simek.

They’re Here, They’re Queer, And They Are The Next Stage In Human Evolution!

In Which We Learn That To Keep His Apartment Xavier May Need To Convince His Landlord Mr. Roper That He Is Light In The Loafers, That Cyclops’ Optometrist Would Like To Invite You To His Gun Show, And That Beast May Have Renewed His Membership For The He-Man Woman Haters Club!

A Capricious Bagatelle, Indeed!

Trask was a fool to put his Sentinel base inside the Viking Metrodome.

Oh why won’t all you beautiful nurses just leave me alone! There! I took my pants off. Now will I attract less attention?

If I could fly, I would probably hum John Williams movie themes the ENTIRE time. Which would probably eventually ruin it for me.

Yes, Scott, your doctor could wear sleeves, but then he would just be arrested for Python smuggling!

My dog does the same thing. Just slide the screen across and Cyclops will stop running into it.

Warning to Beast: Unless a) the lady is wearing a corset, b) you’re chewing on a whole turkey leg, and c) the word ‘huzzah’ is being tossed about without rhyme or reason, I would avoid the use of the term wench. It is going to get your balls kicked-in.

Oddly enough, this is how most of my second dates start.

Now where did I leave my keys… NOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Women… Call Me Often! Pow! Zam! Boom!

Actually… I don’t get a lot of second dates. Is it my insane glare? The racist genocidal language I spout? The purple cape? It’s the cape, isn’t it?

I am so alone.

    Hey guys,

    I can’t begin to tell you how much your podcasts cheer me up. As a longtime fan of Marvel’s merry mutants since I was a kid (now in my 30s) it’s a blast to hear you two have such fun with this.

    Just to say, there seems to be a problem on this particular episode page. Downloading or pressing play seems to access a duplicate of episode 16 instead of episode 17! I’m waiting anxiously to hear your commentary of ‘And None Shall Survive!’

    Otherwise, keep up the good work! 😀

      Thanks Craig! You are right, we had the wrong podcast linked there. We usually test them, but sometimes we slack off on our Quality Assurance. We will up the vigilence!

      Also, sorry if it took a while to post this comment. We get a ton of spam and were travelling the first week of August. I am rethinking our comment filtering technique. I hate those character recognition things, but the spam posting is insane. We get a hundred a week I have to toss.
