Will X-Men 97’s Gambit Pay Off?

The Taste Buds review X-Men ’97’s Gambit, Rogue, and Magneto adventure, plus the seventh chapter of Neogenic Nightmare on Spider-Man: The Animated Series!

On an all-new, all-different episode of The Superhero Show Show, the Taste Buds are tackling what might be the biggest episode of television this year: X-Men ’97 #105! At the X-Mansion, a news reporter is interviewing the team about what it’s like to be an X-Man, and what it’s like to be hated. Meanwhile, X-Men 97’s Gambit, Magneto, and Rogue Head to Genosha, an island for mutants that has been officially recognized by the United Nations. Everything is going great, and everyone is telling truths, but a surprise guest arrives at the party to warn the team, and they might have gotten there too late.

X-Men 97’s Gambit, Magneto, and Rogue Head to Genosha!

The internet is already buzzing up a storm about the episode, and on this podcast, the Taste Buds break it all down for you. Nothing will be spoiled here, but beware that this episode will be chock-a-block with spoilers. Chock. A. Block. How does the episode do with handling all of the drama of the story? What do the Taste Buds think the future holds for the team after this episode? And how did X-Men ’97 do with continuing the Marvel mutant tradition of soap operas, love triangles, and tears? X-Men 97’s Gambit says “yes!” Tune in to find out for yourself!

No Pull List this week, as apparently everyone cleared out of the way for X-Men ’97, so the gang heads straight to smTASMANIA to discuss another chapter of Neogenic Nightmare! It’s chapter 7 (it’s halfway done!), and, if you remember, Peter now has six arms! That’s what happens when you take potions that were rushed into production. The anti-vaxxers were right all along! Not only does he have that to figure out, but also Michael Morbius has been kidnapped! And guess who thinks Spider-Man is responsible…it’s the Punisher! X-Men ’97’s Gambit says “uh oh!”

All of that, and so much more, on an all-new episode of The Superhero Show Show!
