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.

Comics continuity is ridiculous. Jay and Miles clearly get that explaining it is a Sisyphean task. I love that their incredulity increases as their familiarity with the material grows - there really is no getting used to how nonsensical the villains' plots are or how everything comes back to Inferno. I've learned to love X-characters I'd hardly heard of and appreciate stories in current X-titles that would have gone straight over my head, all thanks to Jay and Miles.
