Listener Questions Edit

  • Why didn't they bring back Thunderbird, and instead created Warpath? Isn't it strange that he's been one of the few heroes that's stayed dead all of these years?
  • Colossus is always described as turning into organic steel. I'm not a metallurgist, but as I understand it, all steel is organic (in the sense of containing carbon.) This can't be what they mean though, because it would be very extremely redundant. Is it ever explained what organic steel means?
