First rule of Fight Club... Don't talk about fight club.
That's right, the gloves finally come off in Episode 27! Brian gets REALLY feisty and Rob finishes the podcast under protest.
But inbetween punches, we manage to review Wolverine Origins 16, Uncanny X-Men 489, X-Factor 22 and New X-Men 41.
We also go Inside the Mansion with lifetime tag-along Skids.
In Retro Reviews the golden age of X-Men begins in The Dark Phoenix Saga part 1, issues 129 through 133.
And in one of our more... creative... Top 5's we pick theme songs for X-characters using Disney songs!
And in case you're not already dying to listen, we've got two words for you: X-Cast Rap.
Download it right here or on iTunes!
And don't forget to visit our forum.
And here's the lyrics to the rap:
You just tuned into the Uncanny X-Cast
Explore the x-world in the Days of Future Past
With On shelves now, featuring the latest issue
Claremont days in the retro review
Brian P. New Mutant lover, X-vet is in your presence
Not failing to mention his obligatory Cypher reference
Robs back in the mansion, he's a year in the game
Never let him catch you disrespecting Mammomax's name
Not a hour, hour half, keep'em two hours long
Need to hear Rob's cursing, Brian hating Skottie Young
Check the forum for posts on how Rockslide Rocks
Also get the link for Brian's fic Paradox.
Inside the mansion lighting all from Wolverine to Skids
This show should last forever, forget the wife and kids
Its been two weeks, you need your X-news fast
Click on your mouse, download the Uncanny X-Cast
Finally the legend emerges. We learn about the classic New Mutant's fanfic - Paradox!
We review New X-Men 40, X-Men 201, World War Hulk: X-Men 2, and the soon to be classic Wolverine 51-55 lupine arc.
We get the scoop on what happened at San Diego Comicon, and plow forward in retro reviews from X-Men 125 - 128.
Also, learn more about lamination, how angry the Wolverine arc made Brian, and why Skottie Young is better than us in every way.

And don't forget this week's On Shelves Now featuring not one but TWO issues of X-Factor - 20 and 21. We also look at Uncanny X-Men 488.
In Retro Reviews we visit Murderland in Uncanny X-Men 122-124 and meet Arkon? Acorn? Akron? in Uncanny X-Men Annual 3.
And of course a big special thanks to you guys for giving us the motivation to make it to episode 25. Here's to hoping we make it two more!
