[VIDEO] On Bob the Drag Queen and Dark Phoenix

Over the past couple of months, I’ve begun to seriously watch RuPaul’s Drag Race. There is something profoundly compelling to me about watching queer people work so hard to recreate themselves. One drag queen I’ve been particularly interested in watching is Bob The Drag Queen, a season winner who has since gone on to put out great music and comedy.

I recently came across one Bob The Drag Queen video drawn from his stint on the Werq The World tour.

There is a voice at the start of Bob’s routine, a woman talking about the new sensations she feels, the new power. I am quite certain that this voice is taken from X-Men animated series of the 1990s, from the dialogue of Jean Grey as voiced by Catherine Disher in that series’ recreation of the The Dark Phoenix Saga. Right?
