When are the X-Men not the X-Men?

Well, it looks like they haven't been since we started this little project... nice of them to finally let us know!  We're going to talk a lot about what it means to be an X-Man vs. what it means to be a Krakoan today.

Also, there's going to be a bit of sword-fighting...

In our penultimate episode, we take a look at the sort of underwhelming Cable "eulogy" issue... which features two stories.  First we follow Hope and Jean around the globe to shut down some safe houses... then we get a handful of pages reminding us what a devoted husband and father Cyclops was (and no, I'm not joking!).

It's a fun time as always - I sure hope you'll join us!
