If you only listen to one episode of X-Lapsed today… this should be it!
Folks, we have finally arrived at Way of X… our first “shoe drop” issue in quite some time. It reads like something straight out of our very own Mailbag, and I cannot wait for more!
Nightcrawler is our POV character… and I can’t think of anyone better to question the fact that… nobody else seems to question the goings on around Krakoa!
Plus: X-Cellent Mailbag… including our first ever “Day and Date” missive covering the very issue we’re discussing here today!

One thought on “X-Lapsed, Episode 195 – Way of X #1 (2021)”
Between you and Andrew most of my thoughts about this comic have been covered. It was absolutely wonderful. I came into it worrying that it could never hit my expectations as they've been gradually building since the Crucible first appeared. And my expectations were exceeded. Magnificent stuff.
Of course, having a weird brain, I spent most of the episode thinking about cheese toasties. There's something about the unequal cultural exchange between the US and the UK that means I know what Americans call a toasted cheese sandwich but you don't know what we call the same thing. I actually find myself craving a cheese and onion toastie. I'm having to physically stop myself from going into the kitchen and making one.
I'm also not a fan of Dr Nemesis's new look but I hear he's a fun guy!
I'm just really excited to see where this goes next. I wonder if this is deliberate set up for the Trial of Magneto as he seems pretty villainous in this story. And Professor X seems sympathetic for the first time in the HOXPOXDOXROXSOXLOXBOXFOX era.
I can't wait to find out.
