Tonight we synergize with other parts of the Radulich in Broadcasting Network as myself, LRTR, and Movie Review Club celebrate the release of Xmen Age of Apocalypse and focus on Marvel's favorite mutants.. XMEN.

This evening i welcome back Josh Calandros who you may remember from our Secret Warts coverage and our discussion about Y the last man. also coming back to the show is the casual heroes and you can also find him talking MORE wrestling on the Bunkhouse Stampeded here on blog talk... he is the one the only Gavin Napier. The topic of tonight's show takes us back to the mid 90's and a Marvel event that shaped the mutant landscape The Age of Apocalypse had taken over. It all starts w/ a 4 part story called Legion Quest that quickly evolves into one of the best story arcs Marvel had in the 1990's.

Unfortunately near the end we lose Gavin to technical difficulties. However we stick to it and get some pressing questions answered with Josh!

OH YEAH - bonus discussion there at the beginning about Malibu Comics!


From Marvel.com

"In a twisted version of the world they knew, the X-Men battle against the eternal mutant Apocalypse as Bishop seeks to repair the timeline. Legion, Xavier's own son, attempts to kill off all of Xavier's enemies; however, when Legion attempts to murder Magneto, Xavier sacrifices his own life to save Magnus. As a result, Magneto casts off his anti-human sentiments and carries on Xavier's dream of peaceful co-existence, thereby founding the X-Men."
