It’s been a while but we finally revisit the Age of Apocalypse with the next miniseries on our list, X-Calibre, which is basically the Nightcrawler and Mystique show.
It’s got pirates and senseless murder and piles and piles of dead bodies. Cool.
Then we start our longread of Batman: Knightfall with a special Vengeance of Bane one-shot that tells us about how Bane was sentenced to prison as a baby. Wait, that can’t be right…
Next Time: We break format to remember Kevin Conroy with a pair of animated TV episodes
- Batman: The Animated Series – “Perchance to Dream”
- Justice League Unlimited – “This Little Piggy”
Plus we start Batman: Knightfall properly with Batman #492
We finally read about the mutant menace as our friends, Scott and Richard, join us to discuss Giant-Size X-Men #1 from 1975, one of the most important X-issues ever!
Not only was it the first new X-Men story in 5 years, but it also marked Wolverine’s 1st time with the X-Men as well as the 1st appearances of fan favorites Nightcrawler, Storm, and Colossus.
We’ll also meet Sunfire and Thunderbird and figure out why nobody remembers them (and no, it’s not just because they’re huge jerks.)
Also, Banshee is there but nobody cares about Banshee.
And, if you’d like to get a jump on next episode, we’ll be reading Superman: Red Son!
