SSS #466: James Gunn vs X-Men: The Animated Series

The Superhero Show Show #466

 James Gunn vs X-Men: The Animated Series

The Taste Buds discuss a Cyclops episode of X-Men: The Animated Series, and go over James Gunn’s big announcements, on an all-new episode of The Superhero Show Show!

On an all-new, all-different episode of The Superhero Show Show, Mike and Ryan are left alone to discuss two major life events.  The first is, of course, the little video that James Gunn made announcing the projects of the first chapter of the all new DCU: Gods and Monsters. 

If you want to hear what they have to say about the five movies, you’ll have to head over to Patreon. But in the episode proper they will give their hopes and predictions for five new television shows: Creature Commandos, Waller, Lanterns, Paradise Island, and Booster Gold. That’s a lot of TV, but most of it will be filmed and then never shown, so it won’t be so bad.

The Taste Buds are still without any new shows to watch this week, so they turn once again to X-Men: The Animated Seriesand it’s a Cyclops episode!!! Ladies and gentlemen, Superhero Show Show proudly presents No Mutant is an Island, obviously a stupid title, because Krakoa is a mutant and an island.

Still upset with Jean’s death, which in the order the episodes aired happened two years ago, Cyclops decides to go back to the orphanage he stayed at when he was a kid. Most of the children today are being adopted by a man named Killgrave, aka the Purple Man. It’s up to Scott and the head of the orphanage (who has a little requited crush on Scott) to stop the Purple Man and rescue the children.

And next week features the return of television, when a new episode of Harley Quinn mercifully drops!

A disillusioned Cyclops leaves the X-Men and returns to the orphanage where he grew up, only to find it under the control of a mind-controlling mutant.

Also, don’t forget to:

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit

If you or someone you know needs help, or if you want to get more involved, here are 5 resources:

2. Don’t Ban Equality is a campaign for companies to take a stand against abortion restrictions.

3. has information about where to find clinics.

4. provides early at-home abortion pills that you can keep in your medicine cabinet. And five.
