Going by Geek History Lesson’s guidelines, I put together my ideal X-Men team.

Team Name: The Unpredictable X-Men 

The Leader: Emma Frost
The Co-Leader: Beast
The Brutes: Colossus and X-23
The Heart: Storm
The Covert: Domino
The Rookie: Jubilee
The Wildcard: Gambit

I think Emma and Beast would make a solid duo as team leaders, but will also bring different philosophies to their roles. I would keep the Colossus/Domino dynamic from the Cable and X-Force series. Storm would keep the team on track. I think Gambit and X-23 would have a “work flirt” relationship with fun and witty dialogue. Jubilee would just be totally boss 90s Jubilee. I’d buy this book, for sure.

Too much banter and limited content:

Too much vocal fry and nonsense:
Almost anything with two or more women hosting (Sorry, ladies)

I’d love any recommendations for other good listening. Always looking for something new. Of course lol

Did you know:

LES MISÈRABLES has a 3-page, 823-word sentence which is divided by 93 commas, 51 semicolons, and 4 dashes? Rumor has it that someone suffocated from lack of oxygen in the 1940′s just short of the 73rd comma while giving a dramatic reading from the work.
