Episode Description

In which we begin our 3-part coverage of Fall of the Mutants; Roma is very good at her job; strange things are afoot in Dallas; Mystique’s parenting skills are somewhat lopsided; Neal Conan is awesome; Havok gets a soapbox; Storm and Forge flirt with godhood; Rogue’s costume exists in a state of quantum uncertainty; Colossus is the organic steel wrench in the gears of chaos; and the X-Men die for real (but get better).

Listener Questions Edit

  • Do all, most, or many mutants require a specific source to recharge their powers? For those that don't, is it just basic metabolism? If Angel has a long day of dodging things, can he get in a mondo cheat meal without regretting it later? If Dazzer becomes deaf, would she effectively lose her powers?
