A sorta-kinda themed collection of Reign of X issues for this week's compilation piece!  The watchword is "reunions".  Today we're going to see the rematch between Storm and Callisto in the Crucible, Dani and Xian preparing for some Otherworldly stuff, Cable back on the trail of those missing babies we forgot all about, and (as our cover art suggests) Wolverine reacquainting with his old pal Maverick!

It's a fun show... wherein you can also join me in trying to make sense of the voodoo math Marvel employed to get Wolverine up to his 350th LGY issue!  All that, and 3+ hours of my regular nonsense, right here waitin' for ya!

From famine, to feast... and back to famine again!

After a few episodes full of intrigue and import... we return to reality!  An issue of S.W.O.R.D. that, while not bad, reads kind of like a filler/inventory story.

We've got the story of Storm trying to prove to herself and those around her that Marsarakko has not broken her.

We've finally arrived at Inferno... and your humble host has NOT yet been spoiled!  This is one that takes me back to our earliest episodes... wherein I was making wild and outlandish theories, noticing all sorts of symbolism that may or may not exist, and didn't trust anything I was seeing!  In other words, I had a LOT of fun with this!

I hope to hear all of YOUR wild theories on this one too!  The crazier the better!

It's not that you're wrong... you're just a jerk!

Today, we kick off the second arc of the Marvel Unlimited X-Clusive - X-Men Unlimited... and they're calling it X-Men Green... with good reason.

We're going to join perpetual killjoy, Nature Girl as she shows us how much she values human life.  It's a rough one, that feels like it was written by a petulant teen-ager doing their best to rebel, but we'll get through it together!

Also, Jeff the Land Shark runs through a tulip patch.

Plus: We take a look at Marvel Previews for all the goods we're gonna be getting in December -- it's the "calm before the storm" month, wherein many of our favorites (and not-so-favorites) are coming to an end!

You remember that "dupe rule" we discuss like... all the time on the show?  Well, this issue changes a lot of what we thought we knew about it.  Only, will this turn out to be one of those situations wherein it's far easier to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission?  Could we be witnessing the beginnings of a schism between The Five and the Quiet Council?

We'll ask questions like that... and many more - today!
