The day has finally arrived. When I was 12 years old I remember watching The Dark Phoenix Saga as part of the popular Fox Kids X-Men animated series that was popular in the 90s.
Even before I watched my first episode of the show I was familiar with the characters.
I started out collecting Fleer Ultra and Topps trading cards. Marvel Girl was immediately my favorite character. Once I witnessed the gut-wrenching descent of her character into destruction, she further solidified her place in my pantheon of superheroes.
I was so fascinated by this character, and of course her lover Scott, I was giddy when the wedding issue came out. It was such a fantastic special everyone in my family bought their own copy.
In 2006 I was mesmerized by the conclusion to the original X-Men film franchise. Sure, I was disappointed in the films depiction of my beloved character, yet as a fan of Jean more so than the Wolverine, well I can say the movie still captured my heart and brought a flood of human emotions to the forefront of my being. As much as it gets a bad rep, I still went back to see it two more times.
It would be an understatement to say I am beyond hyped for this film. That is all show is about to start, check the podcast for unfiltered thoughts.
