Episode 25: A Very Goth Universe


Luke and Jay (his Pathfinder DM) sit down to go over Mutant X, Havok, The Six, a series of messed up timelines, lost plot points that ultimately ends back where it started. Also the best Cyclops!

Universes and Issues Explored: 

  1. Earth 1298 – Mutant X

Notes:

  • SHIELD stands for Saviors of Humanity by Intervention in the Evolution of Life-form Deviants.
  • Vendetta only has an alternate version in the 2099 universe where she eventually became Punisher 2099.
  • Magneto had been fighting the Kree, not the Shi’ar but it literally didn’t matter.
  • Technically Cyclops didn’t approach Havok with the ship but it is more entertaining in my headcanon.
  • Bastion being Cerebro XIII may also be headcanon but otherwise Cerebro XIII has no reason.
  • @jaydawson is Jay’s Twitter.

Our cover is by Noél Villay and our theme music is by Vibe Leviathan.
