The X-Men TAS Podcast: Episode 39 – The Dark Phoenix Saga Part One – Dazzled

Posted in on December 11th, 2017 by Willie

Oh baby, Dark Phoenix Month is here and the timing couldn’t be better! Dark Phoenix (the movie) is in the news, Disney is buying back the X-Men (maybe) and the X-Men TAS Podcast is diving deep into one of the most classic story lines the series has to offer! So join us as we discuss…

  • How Professor X is so bad at therapy that he blows up half of Muir Island!
  • Dazzler, the Jem and the Holograms mutant reject!
  • The Hellfire, I mean Circle, I mean Hellfire Club controversy!
  • The trashy Jean Grey romance novel we’ll never get to read!
  • My plans for a female centric X-Men movie that in no way interests Sonia (noted female)!

It’s a long and delicious escape into the world of red satin tights, corporate monopolization, and tantalizing, sensual senses! As usual, make sure to subscribe to our podcast via iTunes or Stitcher and tell all your friends about it!

Posted in on October 9th, 2017 by Willie

Phoenix Month continues, exploding from the deepest depths of the Hudson River straight into your earbuds! We have a jam-packed episode that takes you all around the galaxy and back again, somehow linking the world of the X-Men to the Seinfeld cinematic universe! So join us as we discuss…

  • How to properly fly the space-shuttle through the skyscrapers of lower Manhattan!
  • How Howard the Duck, Deadpool and Larry David all make their magical presences felt in this episode!
  • How there is no better place to meditate then atop the Brooklyn Bridge!
  • How lucky it is for Professor X that Lilandra is not a deformed space monster!
  • How “The Gifted” impressed and depressed us and all our other thoughts on the new FOX show!

If that wasn’t enough, we lay out a plan on how to revitalize and energize the comic-book movie and television worlds before they decay into outright stagnation! It’s a crazy and whirling episode that we hope you all enjoy!

X-Men, The Animated Series Review

Posted in Comic Books on June 4th, 2011 by Willie

Before I launched williesimpson.com, I ran a website called internetclub91.com with my friend Ken Kocses.  On that site, I created a web series called the Superhero Club Review.  The reviews had the premise that I would review every superhero related TV show and movie ever.  Well, I still haven’t given up on the idea, and I WILL return to reviewing these things one day, maybe soon.  Anyway, in honor of the new X-Men First Class movie coming out, I thought I’d repost my review of the legendary 90s cartoon, X-Men.  If I start making reviews soon, I’m going to begin with the X-Men movies, but until then, I hope you enjoy this if you’ve never seen it.
