(Editor’s Note: The X2 review starts around the 55:00 mark). Continue reading The Superhero Pantheon Vol. 2 – Episode 10: X-Men & X-Men 2

Today marks the first of many (or possibly none) listicles essays on such important issues permeating throughout the franchise…who were the best villainous sidekicks in the history of the franchise?
