Episode 86 - X-Men: First Class (2011)

Megan Murphy returns to take us all to SCHOOL this week as X-Mens in July (Note: It's X-mas in July. X-Mans isn't a thing. - Anthony) continues!

How do Magneto's history of suffering and war and Xavier's life of privilege and study inform their conflicting philosophies about diversity? Why are we spending so much time focusing on Hank McCoy fondling a mannequin? How great would this have been if it was just X-Men: Oranges: Magneto with Michael Fassbender?  How great would it be to just stroke Michael Fassbender's hair for a while?

If we made a No Time for Heroics: First Class it would just be about us kicking around in university, introducing Andrew to his first microphone and Anthony discovering pro-wrestling for the first time, then someone just handing us a DVD of Condorman and going "oh, you don't KNOW?" It would be pretty lame, you guys.
