This week we start off our X-Men series with “Days of Future Past” by Chris Claremont. As Cyclops leaves the team, a new generation of X-Men step in, including new member Kitty Pryde. We talk about the fight with Wendigo and the tryst into a bleak, sentinel-ruled alternate future. For more information on past or future shows, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
Our “DC Let Downs” series concludes with one of the most lauded comics of all time, “Final Crisis” by Grant Morrison. This 7-issue comic is the end play of the incredibly long build-up that spanned multiple DCU-wide events. We talk about all the narrative problems, the character problems, and the WTF problems because, really, none of the good ideas from this comic had any room to shine through a cloud of anti-life haze.

This is probably one of the freakiest dystopian apocalypse comics we’ve ever read. “Supergod” manages to have a singular smooth narrative with powerful art that creates truly horrifying visions of why, just maybe, humanity shouldn’t actually worship the superhumans it may be striving to make.
