In our milestone ONE HUNDREDTH episode… we talk about a wildly underwhelming issue of Wolverine! Welp, we certainly do play the ball where it lay here on the show, don’t we?
Today’s episode is dedicated to anyone who has listened to this program – without you, there’s no way I’d be able to keep up this rigorous schedule. Your listenership and engagement mean more to me than I can put into words. Thank you all.
We have an excellent Milestone Mailbag this episode as well!

One thought on “X-Lapsed, Episode 100 – Wolverine #5 (2020)”
Congratulations on your 100th episode spectacular! Thanks to Jesse I now have a new theory. The resurrected X-Men are edited to have their teenage personalities. It fits their general lack of inhibitions and finally explains Jean's costume and codename choices. I could even combine it with our previous theory that the real characters are in suspended animation and everyone is a clone.
Onto the Wolverine story. Can I be the first to ask for a return to the version of Dracula from Paul Cornell's Captain Britain series. Dracula only really works for me with a hearty dose of camp. This grimdark nonsense just annoys me.
I could no-prize the "ride or die" comment by explaining that Wolverine is very, very old and is attempting to use a modern phrase to be "down with the kids" and doesn't understand it. He thinks it means go away or I will kill you.
I read the bit with the rainbow as related to Thor. I haven't been reading any non-X Marvel recently but it felt Asgardian. Maybe one of your other listeners could confirm or deny my theory.
Anyway until Dracula does Veganuary, Make Mine X-Lapsed!
