Added DiffLines:

** Likewise, Dr Peter Corbeau is inevitably referred to as "Super Doctor Astronaut Peter Corbeau", and no mention of the Shi'ar by Jay passes without Miles fuming "bird jerks" in response.

Added DiffLines:

** On live shows, the whole [[AudienceParticipation audience]] joins in.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Par the course for two reviewers covering the histories of characters that have built up over fifty years of history, but there are a number of character perceptions they hold strong to throughout the series:
** They agree with Kitty Pryde that Professor Xavier is a jerk!



* AscendedFanon: Miles and Jay are both prone to adopting personal interpretations as canonical, although they are also very clear about the difference between that and actual canon.



* NarmCharm: It's pointed out in Episode 001 that Magneto's overall look is horrible, but it's such a mainstay and Magnus makes it work for himself so well that you can't help but respect him for sticking with it.
* NightmareRetardant: It's pointed out that Bolivar Trask's illustration of a mutant-ruled future loses some impact as the "horrifying creature" depicted looks like Kiff from WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}.



** Any mention of either Firestar or Emma Frost will eventually bring up [[NeverLiveItDown the time Frost blew up Firestar's pony]]. (As they admit, [[BeamMeUpScotty she actually burned the building down with the horse still inside]], but it's funnier to say that she blew it up.)

Added DiffLines:

* IconicOutfit: For the entire Silver Age team, the one and only Plaid Suit, which Creator/JackKirby seemed to pass around from character to character throughout his run.

Added DiffLines:

* CoolHat: X-Men villain’s (i.e. Magneto, Juggernaut, the Sentinels) tendency to have ridiculous Creator/JackKirby designed hats is mentioned at several points.

Added DiffLines:

** Miles compares [[ItMakesSenseInContext the Sentinels going to fight the sun]] to Lancelot trying to take down a castle with a sword in Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail.

Added DiffLines:

* AerithAndBob: Miles is so disappointed that Bolivar Trask named his son ''Larry''.

** Miles compares the Sentinels to [[Franchise/DoctorWho the Daleks]] for their goofy design but terrifying presence due to years and years of context building them up as unstoppable forces.
