The superhero film landscape at the turn of the century was bleak and much of the blame can be laid at the feet of Batman and Robin, taking the camp factor too far and turning the genre as a whole into a punchline, luckily that would all change in the year 2000.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined for the first time by Shawn Eastridge to talk about X-Men. We discuss the context of the movie, the story, some history, humor, the cast, Malcolm X vs MLK Jr., does it hold up and our ratings.
