Going a bit (or maybe more) off the beaten X-Path today, to discuss the first of three issues of Runaways (vol.5) we’ll be covering on the program. We’ve got Wolverine and Pixie pullin’ a rescue… but, what happens when the rescuee (Molly Hayes) doesn’t even realize she’d asked for help?
Plus: Some Great Mailbag!

One thought on “X-Lapsed, Episode 161 – Runaways #33 (2021)”
I had never read an issue of Runaways or any story featuring these characters. They just passed me by. I was pleasantly surprised that Rainbow Rowell was able to involve me in a story featuring characters I didn't know.
The high school setting helps. Everyone knows those tropes, we instantly feel at home. As you say there was real horror in the Shelter in Place scenes. The banality of the horror makes it worse.
Loved the way that Wolverine and Pixie arrive and I love the idea of a Doombot butler. Just an altogether delightful comic.
Anyway until I get a Doombot to keep my flat organised, Make Mine X-Lapsed.
