X-Lapsed, Episode 178 - X-Factor #8

April 30, 2021

The Boneyard's Haunted... by X-Factor?!

Today's episode features plenty of Mutant death... and morr of the Morrigan.  It also feels a bit truncated - which will likely be today's "watchword"

Also: A very challenging Mailbag for your humble host, who tries not to stumble over his words too badly.

X-Lapsed, Episode 177 - Children of the Atom #1

X-Lapsed, Episode 177 - Children of the Atom #1

April 29, 2021

After a year of delays... it's finally time to meet, well - whoever these Children of the Atom turn out to be!

In this opening chapter, we get elbows deep into the mystery of who... and/or what these characters might end up being!  Are the Chimeras?  Are the high on MGH?  Are they just really good Cosplayers?

... and how come they changed the last page of this issue when it published digitally?  I make a lot of wild theories... and I'd love to hear yours as well!

Also: An X-Cellent Mailbag Segment!

X-Lapsed, Episode 176 - Runaways #34

April 28, 2021

Another day - Another Wolverine guest-appearance!  I do believe that we might wind up eventually doubling our episode count including all of Logan's wandering around the 616!

Today, after sorting out a misunderstanding with the Runaways, Wolverine and Pixie set out to rescue a brand-new mutant -- and bring the Runaways with 'em for good measure!

If you don't listen... Nico might just transform you into an ice cream cone!

X-Lapsed, Episode 175 - Hellions #10

April 27, 2021

In today's x-tra size milestone episode, we find out what Arcade and that elf from the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer special had in common.  Hint: It has to do with teeth!

Also: Our titular Hellions face off against their deepest, darkest desires... and maybe grind up on a robot manikin or two.  I promise this is a book worth reading... and, hopefully an episode worth hearing.

All that and some great and thought-provoking listener mail!

Thanks to everyone for their support over these last one hundred and seventy-five episodes!

X-Lapsed, Episode 174 - M.O.D.O.K.: Head Games #3

April 26, 2021

We're still "off the beaten path" here... and, we're looking at - of all things, an issue of M.O.D.O.K.: Head Games!  Whodathunkit?

We've got a little playful shade thrown at our Head of X... and a fun little adventure through the white-space with one of our new favorites - The Unbelievable Gwenpool!

Speaking of "unbelievable" - I can't believe I just read a M.O.D.O.K. comic where I a) felt bad with him, and 2) wanted to read more!  It's an #XLapsed Miracle!

It's the Hotpants Issue of Generation X - we've got a couple couples getting ready to start coupling... well, three couples I guess, if we count the Fenris Twins (let's not!).

A fun issue... and a promising start to the second half of this run!

April 24, 2021

It's anthology day at #FCTCXMen - and so, Walt (@waltkneeland) and me are going to take a look at two issues of Marvel Comics Presents!

The Cyber storyline rolls on in Wolverine... the Beast is still looking for love... and we get to discuss the first Marvel work of eventual Uncanny X-Men artist, Joe Madureira!

All that, plus Walt answers the dreaded Pod-File questionnaire!

X-Lapsed, Episode 173 - Black Cat #9

April 23, 2021

Remember how we all used to complain during the 90s that Wolverine would show up in so many books a month?  Well, it's a good thing THAT'S a thing of the past, innit?

The more things change, right?  Today, we're taking a detour into, of all things, an issue of Black Cat (an ongoing series your humble host didn't even realize was a thing!) where she and a certain Mr. Patch are running the tables in Madripoor's Hightown.  It's a very fun story, I hope you'll give a listen!

April 22, 2021

Welcome to our "Just the X, Ma'am!" look at the Marvel's Voices: Indigenous Voices Anthology Special!

Today we will be discussing two stories... one featuring Dani Moonstar, the other featuring Silver Fox -- the latter of which gives us the origin story of Old Blue from that crazy "Tracykins" issue of Wolverine (vol.2) we covered during the first episode of From Claremont to Claremont!

Also: Great Listener Mail!

April 21, 2021

It's taken us 12 issues and 13 months... but, we're finally heading into The Vault to catch up with Wolverine (X-23), Synch, and Darwin!  It's mostly a fight scene, but there are some useful bits and bobs dropped in.

Also: Sinister Secrets Revisited!  We take a look at the 19 Sinister Secrets we first read a very long time ago to discuss which ones played out... and which we're still waiting on!  It's a very fun conversation I had with myself -- I hope you'll give it a listen!

Wolverine and Maverick flee Madripoor (it's a lawless place, donchaknow!) and try to talk each other into leaving their way of life.  Wolverine would dig it if Mav came to live on Krakoa... while Mav thinks it would be cool if they teamed up as Mercs again.

Today they're going to go on one "last" caper together...

Just when I thought it was safe to look forward to New Mutants... we're taken back into Otherworld!

Many of the story beats of the last few issues that I cared about are squashed into a scant handful of pages so we might engage in yet another romp through the Fair and Foul Kingdoms.  Huzzah?

Another step off the beaten path!

Today we're joining the Champions, who are currently on the run from yet another acronymic Marvel organization!  This one is out to stop young heroes from... well, being heroes and they're called C.R.A.D.L.E. (get it?).

After I do my darnest to navigate the OUTLAWED storyline, we discuss former Champion, Cyclops' attempt to help out his old friends.  Also: The Marauders show up!  It's about as X-Book as we can get... without being an actual X-Book!

All kidding aside... if you've already read this one, you know we've got a LOT to chat about.  Let's buckle in and... theorize!

Today's episode ponders some deep concepts such as maturation, change... and questions whether what we're seeing play out on the page is what we think it is.

Also: Some X-News and theories regarding the upcoming #ReignofX Summer of Bloat!

It's a story of beatboxing Rat Kings, and owl-based testicular trauma... you won't wanna miss it!

Welcome to the HoXPoXDoXSoXRoX King in Black cash-in one-shot.  If we used to refer to certain Crisis on Infinite Earths tie-ins as "Red Sky Crossovers", I suppose we can call this a "Symbiote Dragon Sky Crossover".

Here, the Marauders very nearly get involved with the main King in Black story (rescuing the Cyclops Who Laughs and the Storm Who Laughs)... before being distracted by a passing boat.

On the plus side, this is Alan Davis Otherworld... which is far more whimsical and less up its own butt than anything we see nowadays.
