Kate Pryde Goes Full Juggernaut Meme in Marauders #2 (Spoilers)

“I’m The Juggernaut Bitch!” is a popular phrase often associated with the character, The Juggernaut from the X-Men. The phrase stems from a parody video of the original X-Men Animated Series created in 2005 by Randy Hayes and Xavier Nazario of My Way Entertainment. The original animation depicted a fight between Lilandra and the X-Men with Cain Marko, the Juggernaut, overdubbed with repeat profanity, the most repeated phrase being “I’m The Juggernaut Bitch!”. It became quite the popular meme, was posted to YouTube but was repeatedly withdrawn. Further videos were made, cementing the line in pop culture.

Then when the movie X-Men: The Last Stand was released, with Vinnie Jones playing Cain Marko, The Juggernaut, the line was used in a fight scene in which the Juggernaut fought Kitty Pryde.

Today in Marauders #2, we get the culmination of the plot over the identity of the new Red King, Red Queen or indeed Red Monarch of the Hellfire Club. The identity of the individual may have been revealed in previous accidental leaks. But it is confirmed with the final page of Marauders #2, which recalls such mutant memes of the past…
