Graphic Policy Radio: X-Men and the MLK Legacy Roundtable. In honor of MLK Day, we present the podcast discussion. #Podcast #Comics #ComicBooks
One of our most listened to episodes of Graphic Policy Radio discussed the X-Men and their use as an allegory of the civil rights, it covered the series throughout its many incarnations and writers. The discussion also veered into the depiction of minorities in “comic” entertainment and Marvel’s continuity. In honor of MLK Day, we present that podcast discussion.

At the same time, the duo makes their next move against…

So Evan Peters is allegedly in “WandaVision” according to the cast list on Google. Now I see his appearance going one of three ways:
1. Evan Peters is going to be the guy in the beekeeper uniform.
2. His appearance is just going to be a fun little cameo for MCU and X-Men fans. I see him probably being a S.H.I.E.L.D or S.W.O.R.D agent, but maybe an FBI agent as an extra little wink to his Quicksilver character.
3. He will show up as Quicksilver in an end credit scene for the final episode and his appearance will factor in to “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” People have been talking about how Marvel as conditioned us all to expect an end credit scene after every episode, which same, and there haven’t been any end credit scenes in “WandaVision” obviously. However, “WandaVision” isn’t over yet and end credits always come at the end of the story, so I think there will be an end credit scene and it will be about Peter Maximoff ending up in the MCU due to Wanda or Wanda and whatever outside forces may be influencing her. I think she’s gonna try and bring back Pietro Maximoff and end up accidentally bringing Peter Maximoff into the MCU instead. Or she ends up bringing back both, who knows.
