In today's penultimate issue of X-Men + Fantastic Four, the stakes are upped once again!  Well, sorta.

We're going to talk a lot about how the X-Men are being portrayed here... and any time they're pitted against, or sharing panel-space with, any other Marvel heroes.  Your humble host tires of seeing his favorite folks "jobbed out" and made to look lesser-than every Marvel character from Willie Lumpkin on up!

Welcome friends, to a whole new series - and part of the "New Fall Season" here at the channel.

Longtime Legion-denier, Chris (@acecomics) looks to right the wrong of keeping DC's future-teen-heroes as a deliberate blind-spot in his comics knowledge... and to do so, he's found himself a friend to help him navigate this twisting and storied franchise.  Lifelong Legion fan, Al Sedano (@AdamThanosPod) has gracio...

Because absolutely nobody demanded it...

... Major X-Lapsed returns with its second installment!

Today, I have far less fun with Issue #2 of Major X... which, rather than remaining a fun retro romp through the early '90s - starts taking itself a bit too seriously.  We've got Atlantean politics to deal with... and that's just the beginning!  I don't know about y'all, but Atlanteans are right up there with the Inhum...

Keeping with our coverage of X-Men + Fantastic Four - this time out, Reed and the Gang are Krakoa-bound looking for their lost kids.  Only problem is, they ain't there!  Instead, they're out on an island somewhere with Uncle Doom and (Aunt?) Call Me Kate.

It's a knock down drag out affair when the X-Men and Fantastic Four go at it... and one that, despite how much I'm enjoying it, I'm going to poke several ho...

Today we begin the story I've been looking forward to since we first saw the tense confrontation between Reed Richards and Scott Summers way back in House of X #1 (Episode 001 of this very program)!  Today we bear witness to the skirmish over "The Impossible Boy", the recently-rapidly-aged, Franklin Richards!

An Omega Level Mutant, Franklin would definitely be an asset for the growing mutant nation of Krakoa... there are...

Today we wrap up our time at the Bohusk Farm... and, it gets far bloodier than you might imagine.  We learn a little bit more about the Cartel, DOX... and those creepy grey-skinned black-eyed children.

It's a good time as always... as we head toward the "landmark" fiftieth episode of X-Lapsed (can it really be a landmark, if I'm the only one that cares?  Don't answer that!)

What is that blinding light?  It's as though we're at the end of a seemingly endless tunnel!  That's right, friends... today, it ends.  After this episode of X-Lapsed, we never have to (knock on wood) discuss another issue of Fallen Angels... ever again.

Crank up the orchestral soundtrack for your favorite Final Fantasy game, because we're about to see Psylocke battling a bona fide god... for, like a page or two.  Lo...

The King is Weird... Long Weird the King!

As Excalibur (hopefully) wraps up its Otherworld arc, the place gets a new ruler... and he's a weirdo pervert.  At least he's a Braddock!  Today we have dueling siblings, crushed nuts, and perhaps the quickest resurrection of the Dawn of X era!

Finally folks... we come to the end of our (regularly-scheduled) run on Morituri Mondays... but, never you fear - we've still got (at least) five thick issues of Strikeforce: Morituri - Electric Undertow on their way in the not-so-distant future.

But, that's a story for another day...

Today, not only do we wrap up the monthly run of Strikeforce: Morituri... but the Chris's had the absolute pleasure and privilege of chatti...

Who's ready to party like it's 1991?

Welcome, friends to the first spinoff program to X-Lapsed - Major X-Lapsed!  That's right, today we're going to be covering the somewhat divisive little ditty from the somewhat divisive Rob Liefeld.  I'll probably be doing one of these a week for the next several.  If you're expecting this to be a half-hour of me bashing this first issue of Major X... well, you're prob...

Business just picked up!  Today, faithful friends and listeners... we're talking about one heck of an issue of Marauders.  Join me as we look at one of the strongest issues of the Dawn of X era yet!

Also: An X-Tended Listener Mail segment chatting pretty much everything from HoXPoX through to DoX... with a little EcksOfTens for good measure!

Fallen Angels isn't even over yet, and X-23 is already joining another team?  Well, I guess that's just a sign of the times.  Today we join her, Synch, and Darwin as they attempt to infiltrate the Children of the Vault's... well, vault.

It's another strange one-off issue of X-Men (vol.5)... listen to me try not to complain that it's not everything I wanted it to be!

It's the penultimate issue of Fallen Angels... so, what's say we actually start-and-finish rounding out our team, yeah?

Today I talk about how unpleasant a character Kwannon is, and question how anyone ever thought she could carry her own back-up feature in a random issue of X-Men Unlimited much less an actual miniseries.  At least there's only one to go...

Whatever happened to Wolverine's bottom half?  For that matter, whattabout Quentin Quire from the shoulders down?  Prepare to find out, my friends...

Today our (makeshift) X-Treme Team takes on a group of MERCs who maybe aren't completely ready for prime-time.  They make plenty of mistakes... but, the sort that kinda have to happen for the story to work out the way it does.  That's just the row we hoe with X-Force(d).

I never thought I'd be so happy to see Deathbird!

Welcome back to Shi'ar Space, fellow NewMu's... it's time for one heck of a fun (farm-less) issue of New Mutants!  Join me as I talk all about how much I enjoy these characters... while at the same time, am growing a bit weary of the tricks of the current DoX landscape.  We've got nothin' happenin' bad guys, and a cliffhanger that threatens with some mutan...

Today's issue of Excalibur is... well, kind of all over the place.  Lotta stuff happens... nebulously.  We even get yet another mutant "death"!

Also: Your humble host learns a bit more about Britishness... just enough to realize he still hasn't the foggiest idea what he's talking about!  Join in for all the fun!

Today we kick off the Dawn of X Wave One #5s with Marauders!  We get some great callbacks to the long ago... and your humble host uncomfortably talks about the new(ish) take on Bobby Drake.  I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on the post-2016 Iceman!

Also: I am questioned as to what my "review process" looks like... and I do my best to answer.  All'at and much, much more!

Today we join the Autumn Quarter of the Krakoan Quiet Council as they attend a meeting of the World Economic Forum.  When Magneto is offered a pulpit, you can be sure he's going to take it!

What could be better than an issue of Fallen Angels?  Well, how about a "Part 4 of 6" issue of Fallen Angels?  Join me as we have the same revelations we've already had three times... and we inch ever closer to the finish line.

Welcome friends, to a most deadly episode of X-Lapsed.  Today, we're covering X-Force #4, which turns out to be rather aptly named... considering how "Forced" much of this issue feels!

Featuring dialogue no human would ever say... and yet another fatal cliffhanger ending... it's safe to say that X-Force #4 is not my favorite post HoXPoX outing.  Please listen anyway!
