Dawn of X, Wave Two rolls on with the introduction of a very bizarre book, indeed - it's Hellions!

What happens when you put Sassy Sinister in charge of a group of "inconvenient mutants"?  Well, we're about to find out.  This is a book that should NOT work - but, damned if it doesn't!  We're gonna have fun with this one!

Also: A Giant-Size (and somewhat emotional) mailbag segment!  Thank you all for helping to push the Chris and Reggie Channel over 100,000 downloads!

Today we're going Giant-Size to discuss an issue that claims to focus on Nightcrawler... and, while he IS in this story - the more accurate title for this might've been Giant-Size X-Men: Magik.  We're going to talk about continuity and costs here... as our entire story is built to add a resident to Krakoa, who we already saw pass through the portal months ago!

Also: An actual Giant-Size Mailbag segment, talking about all things HoXPoXDoXSoX!  It's a great time as always, I do hope you'll join us!

Today we wrap up the Major X miniseries proper... and, well - I wish I could say we've got a lot to talk about... but, we don't!  We will see some Deadpool-on-Deadpool action... and our big-bad will get taken down by the Care Bear Stare.  I will also rail on about inconsistencies in the depiction of our titular character.

Just one more episode to go... if we're bad enough dudes and dudettes to see our way through!

A little something different for your Saturday!

Your humble host has been long dragging his feet on releasing the next full (12+ hour long) episode of From Claremont to Claremont: An X-Men Podcast - however, today I'm dropping the segment where Jody Yerdon (@regalfan) and I discuss the final issue of the Chris Claremont run - X-Men (vol.2) #3 (December, 1991).

In addition to covering the issue itself, we also include a bit of a "hook" in that Jody (along with the rest of the FCTC hosts) will share with us the "Soundtrack of Their Life" - It's a very fun conversation - and I hope you all enjoy, and maybe even share some of the songs that would be on your own playlists!

For the handful of folks who even remember that FCTC was even a "thing", I apologize for taking forever to start releasing these!

What's (no longer) Eating Neena Thurman?

Today, after a short stint in [dead], we welcome Domino back to the X-Force fold -- only, she's a little bit different than last we left her.  For one, well - she's alive, but for another - she's no longer tormented by all of the things she suffered toward the end of her previous life.  We will be asking questions...

Also: More great listener mail... and a whole lot of my babbling!  It's a fun show as usual, I hope you'll decide to join us!

X-Lapsed is back in Otherworld... welp, it was nice while it lasted, eh?

Today's issue takes us toward the Starlight Citadel so Betsy Britain can find out why she has been forsaken by the place - after all, she is Captain Britain... stands to reason she ought to be able to visit the place where the Captain Britain Corps used to hang out, no?

Also: Great listener mail - more discussion of the controversial Crucible... and perhaps the even more controversial, Fallen Angels miniseries!

Stop me if you heard this one before - in today's issue, our heroes head over to a Russian-ish country that doesn't recognize Krakoa as a sovereign nation.

Yeah, it's that again - but, at least this time out we get a new reality-warping mutant to deal with, and get to see some of the weirdos from the Mutant Liberation Front!

Also: X-Cellent listener mail, including a missive that isn't totally on board with the HoXPoXDoXSoX direction!  Lotsa meat on the bone today - I hope you'll join us for the fun and discussion!
