Welcome to the X-Men, Rascally Roy Thomas – we hope you survive the X-Perience!
This time out, we’re reintroduced to the dread Lucifer… as well as the tandem of ersatz X-Men, Blob and Unus the Untouchable?! We’ll talk a fair bit (probably too much) about the concept of “Fan Turned Pro” as it pertained to eventually making comics less accessible, storywise, to the more casual reader – Was X-Men #20 the first domino to tip in that direction?!
Plus: Our regular smattering of Silver-Age backmatter… including a rather snippy Stan Lee venting his frustration on Brand Ecch Comics – which facilitates your humble host recalling times wherein Brand Ecch Comics Podcasts lifted some of his own material! Also: The X-Lapsed Mailbag and the presentation of our first ever “Fake-Ass No-Prize”!
