Episode 16 - Dark Phoenix Part 1


In this week’s episode, your friendly neighborhood geeks - Liz, Paul and special guest Scott -  deep-dive into the most iconic X-men storyline of all time in the lead-up to Dark Phoenix

In part one of this special two-part episode, we discuss Jean Grey's journey from the innocent Marvel Girl to the extraordinarily powerful Phoenix. We're going deep into the nitty-gritty of Chris Claremont's X-men run, so be warned- big spoilers for that! 

"In Dark Phoenix, the X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy."
