Place your bids, gang - it's time for an auction!

Logan's at Legacy House... and there's an interesting assortment of items up for grabs, indeed -- including his old running buddy with the funny-looking noseless mask!

Also: In lieu of a Mailbag Segment - we're taking a stab at fantasy-booking the replacement members of the Krakoan Quiet Council!

X-Lapsed, Episode 155 - Excalibur #17

March 30, 2021

An issue of Excalibur with Otherworld AND the Coven Akkaba?  What have we done to deserve this?  The coronation of Betsy Britain into the Corps continues... seventeen issues in.  If she ain't legit by now... is she ever going to be?

Also: In lieu of a Mailbag section, I fantasy-book my new (Hellfire Gala) X-Men team!

X-Lapsed, Episode 154 - New Mutants #15

March 29, 2021

The new direction for New Mutants is ramping up... causing your humble host to ask so many questions!  This has unexpectedly become one of the "meatiest" books in the line - prompting quite a bit of discussion and analysis.

If earlier New Mutants arcs caused you to drop the title - I'd say it's definitely safe to come back home!

March 28, 2021

Getting to know you!  Getting to know all about you!

Welcome back, friends - to the issue where we finally start getting into the head of our Point of View character.  We find out why he's so worried about learning how to use his powers... and dare I say, begin to care about him!

A much stronger issue than I was expecting.  Not perfect - but, we're moving in the right direction!

From Claremont to Claremont, Episode 2d - X-Force & Spider-Man: Sabotage!

March 27, 2021

We can't stand it... we know you planned it!

We gonna (try) and set it straight... this Liefeld/McFarlane-gate!

Welcome back, friends - to the eXtreme corner of From Claremont to Claremont where Chris (@Charlton_Hero) and I take a look at X-Force!  This time out, it's a (literally) sideways two-part crossover with Todd McFarlane's adjectiveless Spider-Man title - in which, well - basically nothing happens, but the Toddster winds up quitting Marvel forever!  We'll talk all about that, and a whole lot more in this very episode!

Also: Mr. Bailey sits in for the dread (and x-tended) "Pod-File" segment including the Marvel Bullpen Cool-o-Meter for November, 1991!

Unduh da sea!

Today we join Wolverine, Forge, and the no-longer dead Kid Omega as they perform some underwater surgery on Lovecraftian infection -- all the while asking the tough questions good Krakoans ought not to ask!  Also, Namor shows up to rustle some feathers and drop a hot take or two.  It's a goodie!

Also: A decidedly Generation X-flavored mailbag!

Dead Man Walking!

Today we start the second-half of, what I suppose we might call the Cable "maxiseries"?  We're dipping right back in with the kidnapping plot that launched this volume, and was unfortunately slid to the back-burner for the Festival of Swords.

It's a fun issue - and a return to form for one of our favorite books in the line!

Today we'll talk all about how little I know about the King in Black event... other than to say, it sounds like pretty much EVERY Marvel mass crossover event, just with a gooey coat of paint!

Also: Great Mailbag!

Welcome, friends - to the milestone 150th Episode of X-Lapsed!

Today we're celebrating by returning to one of our favorite story beats of the HoXPoX era -- the Crucible!  And boy, do we have a lot to talk about!

Also: Great Mail... and a new segment chatting up some recent-ish news in the World of X!  We got a cancellation and a Summer Event to parse!

I want to THANK everybody for helping me get to 150 episodes - I can say with 100% certainty that I couldn't have done it without your support!  Thank you all so much!

Plus: Great mailbag... and the formal announcement of the X-Lapsed Origins blogging project!  Pop over to the site for some seminal bits and bobs about Betsy's Beautiful Blonde British Brother Brian... and our most favoritest place ever: Otherworld!

Agree?  Disagree?  I'd love to hear your thoughts on this issue and overall volume of Generation X

Episode Two rolls on, as Jeremiah (@bigox737) and I discuss the weirdness of which dupe got shot, and look into Havok and Polaris's awkward romantic reunion.  Jeremiah will also hop into the hot seat for the dread "Pod File" segment!

No A.I. may be allowed to flourish...

Today's issue of Hellions is quite a challenging one, as it gives us a lot to chew on regarding morality, mortality... and probably a few other "-alities" to boot.  Another wonderful chapter of this wonderful book.  If you're not reading Hellions... you should be! 

Also - Great Mailbag... and a missive that actually inspired a brand-new segment for the show, wherein I take a look at the most recent Sales Charts (October, 2020).  We'll keep doing this as new sales/shipping data becomes available!  Lemme know what you think!

Why does Theresa Cassidy keep dying?  Well, that's what X-Factor's going to have to find out... and it looks like getting those answers is going to be akin to pulling teeth for our heroes.  There's a LOT of food for thought dropped in this issue... and as such, we've got tons to blabber about!

Plus: Great Mailbag... annnnd -- 

-- Since we're getting so close to catching up to "real time", I decided to take a dip into Marvel Previews to check out the X-Books shipping in April, 2021.  We'll probably be doing this once a month from this point on... lemme know what you think!

Welcome to Earth, Arrako... hope we survive the X-Perience!

That's right, friends... it's with this issue of X-Men that the trade enforced at the conclusion of the Festival of Swords comes to pass.  Arrako arrives in the 616... but, how quickly will these new near-Omega level mutants (who have been crossbred with Amenthi demons) acclimate to their new digs?  We've got a lot to talk about today!

If you're digging the show... or at least appreciate the effort put into it, please consider spreading the word!  Thank you!

If you said "Why back to Otherworld, of course!"... well, I mean - where else would we be going?  It's more squishing of our square-peg X-Characters into the round-magic-hole...

Ahem... we've got great mailbag though!

Welcome friends to the new Sunday Special Series!

Today we're going to begin our look at one of the series' that caused your humble host to head for the hills back in 2017... the anachronistic Generation X!

Since the issue itself doesn't give us a whole heckuva lot to talk about, today's episode will feature a lot of me yammering on about my life and times as a Gen X Gen Xer who read Gen X back in the long ago.

As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the series and the show!  Please consider spreading the word if you enjoy!

We need to talk about Hank McCoy.

Our bouncing Beast sure has made a jerk of himself over... well, the past twenty or so years of publication... but, with today's issue - he kinda steps over the Rubicon into irredeemability (at least in your humble host's opinion).

Also, Krakoa purges an inky blob... and Domino's dog (which I didn't even realize she had) has a pretty bad day.

Welcome to a new era for the New Mutants - we've got a new writer, a new direction, and a new threat!  Our Old New Mutants are going to be training a crop of directionless and malaised New New Mutants -- and these newbies are asking some difficult questions... referencing the dearly departed (and never comin' back) Madelyne Pryor!  We got lots to talk about...

It's the penultimate Juggernauting... where we find out just how Cain got his groove back (though, I think I've been saying that for at least the last two issues of this series!)  I really mean it this time though... I think!

We're going to talk about what it means for Cain Marko to be unshackled from Cyttorak - and also dive into D-Cel's deniability problem.  It's a fun chat.

Also: An amazingly insightful edition of the mailbag, that you gotta hear!

Kicking off our second episode (in segmented form) of From Claremont to Claremont, Jody (@regalfan) and I dig right back into X-Men (vol.2) - and talk a whole lot about the debabying of Magneto!  The Many Lives of Moira X have never been quite so scandalous... well, maybe.

Also, Jody sits in for the dreaded "Pod-File" segment, wherein I ask him all of the nutty questions Marvel Staffers used to be asked in the "Pro-File" section of the Bullpen Bulletins of Marvel Comics back in the long ago!  It's a great (and enlightening) chat, and we sure hope you'll join us!

Also, we talk a bit too much about quicksand...
