CM Podcast 158 – X-Statix

Last week, Jon and I reviewed the Deadpool 2 movie on the podcast.  During the movie, Deadpool puts together a team of mutants that he calls X-Force.  One of those mutants was called Zeitgeist and I thought he was made up for the movie.  Turns out, he was 1 of 2 mutants (Domino being the other) that was actually on the team X-Force.  How did I forget this?!

In 2001, Editor in Chief – Joe Quesada wanted to inject some life into X-Force that was not doing so well in sales at the time.  Enter Peter Milligan, writer of Vertigo’s Shade the Changing Man and Animal Man.  He told Joe his crazy idea for the book – Get rid of the original X-Force and replace it with a whole new, all different X-Force.  Full of brand new mutants.  Joe agreed to let Peter tell his story and we got…

Xforce116

X-Force #116 – see that guy in the center of the cover that is doing a vault over the ram-like mutant.  That is Zeitgeist!  The mutant that can spit acid.  And get this, he dies in the comic during the first story arc.

The comic will gain popularity and change it’s name to…

x-statix-06

X-Statix!  I read every issue of this comic during it’s run from 2001 – 2004 and like the wackiness of the new teams.  Jon has never read this version of X-Force/X-Statix so I lent him a trade that I had that collected the first 5 issues of X-Statix.  We dicuss this off beat mutant book by Peter Milligan and Mike Allred.
