In which Jay and Miles from X-plain the X-men are called in to discuss Joshua Williamson’s What If Infinity: X-men is a bit like Firefly, there are universes X-men who were also Avengers reunite, DC Earth designations are like trade numbering, Cannonballs Not Actually X-men are a weird group, Sunspot and Cannonball have a weird wifeswap, picking family over team, the Power of Friendship saves the day, the villain is ill-defined, and the X-men are dead – JUST LIKE YOU. Also questions from listeners like you (or maybe you?)!
