YMMV / Jay & Miles X-Plain The X-Men

Go To

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: 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!
  • Awesome Art: Miles never wastes a moment to mention how awesome (and impractical) all Jack Kirby designs are.
    "He had his own style, and it was AWESOME"
  • Funny Moments:
    • Episode 002:
      • Miles responds to Wanda and Pietro's near-lynching at the hands of villagers in a generic European community, prompting this comment from Miles:
      "Fucking generic Europe. I hate that place."
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • "Yaybo!", A.K.A. Stan Lee's attempt to write realistic teenage dialog for Iceman.
    • From Episode 002: "Magneto made some valid points," a more pragmatic spin on the "Magneto Was Right" meme popularized by the mainstream comics.
  • Narm Charm: 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.
  • Nightmare Retardant: 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 Futurama.

How well does it match the trope?
