          In the uncanny xmen jean piloted a ship to reenter earths orbit after the xmen and starjammers rescued princess lilandra and fought off the imperial guard... they were in capsules that saved them from the radiation of it while jean was possessed by the phoenix force.. why do you think they changed it in the phoenix saga?

              These are the stories I missed 40 years ago! I came in with _'Days of Future Past'_ a year or two later. 😁

                    At the time of this story 20 years of xmen history and they wanted to update Jean grey because no one cared about her. *40 years later* we still dont care about her

                                            I like your videos a lot Rob, but I have to say, you use the phrase “in it’s [or their] entirety” a little too much. But I’m still a fan.

                                                        When had writers who could write and artist who could draw. Came into the x-men right after this so my sister and I had to catch up. Great stories. Chris says why can't it be a woman? A woman not a wahman.

                                                          It’s hilarious how political the x-men were and everyone loves them... but now in this toxic world of ignorant social media bs, anything political in a comic makes all the people rise up and hate these books so much. Why can’t it be like the old days?! The old days were super political ffs.

                                                          People have just found out that the world wants to close the book on bigotry and racism and a certain group of people are so angry and scared that they are being shunned and told that it’s wrong. They get one major validation (*cough* trump) and suddenly they feel justified to come out in the open and start vilifying any comic with any sort of progressive or political message. Comics that most fans grew up with had a progressive political message and they still should. Just because it’s exposing your flaws as being wrong doesn’t make it bad, it’s just making you uncomfortable. Sounds like their problem, the angry reader... not the comics themselves.

                                                          Frankly, a progressive message or story isn’t really even “political”. People see that word as negative often. Progressive means moving forward. Liberal means being open to new ideas. These are good things. Don’t let people force you into living in fear. We should evolve into the best that we can be. We can’t debate facts endlessly, keeping us from ever exploring stories and concepts that expand our minds and society.

                                                          Don’t be afraid to talk about politics in comics please. Rob or anyone reading this... we can’t be silenced because of this loud, vocal minority saying that comics, games, tv and movies can’t be political. They have been before and they were beloved. They should be again.

                                                            No the X-Men were political but it wasn't preachy SAW madness. I loved the initial meaning of the X-Men being a metaphor for blacks during the Civil Rights era of the 1960s. Metaphors are an important tool when it comes telling a story with political themes. You don't hit the read over the head with your message constantly like today's comics are doing

                                                            I can't believe how well you started off only to veer so far into being completely wrong about almost everything you listed.

                                                            The political left is wielding the whole diversity thing as a club to beat anyone they disagree with. If someone doesn't agree with them on any little aspect of their ass backwards ideas, they call you a Nazi white supremacist, even if you're Jewish or black or Latino.

                                                            Since they call everyone left of Bernie Sanders a Nazi, they see Nazis everywhere, and tell actual Nazis that they're rabidly growing, so the actual Nazis feel braver and rear their ugly heads.

                                                            What's worse is that by calling everyone an alt right Nazi, they've devalued the term. Now those written off as Nazis by these dumbasses will be open to alt right talking points, because maybe they aren't as bad as the people falsely calling everyone Nazis claims them to be.

That X men that appears in this old comics and looks kinda like a native american... who is he? why he wasn't in the X-Men animated series (I think he might have been in the opening sequence?) looks like he was a staple of the series

I would anxiously await each new issue and would keep checking this circular rack at my local 7-11 where comics were displayed. It was so easy to get hooked right away, not just because of the great plot and action sequences, but also because the relationships between team members were so well written. Thanks for this video!
