In the Criminal Justice System, the super-people gotta deal with two separate, yet equally important groups. The Top Ten precinct and their dog-boss who investigate the super-crimes and the shark-people who do a terrible job of trying to defend them. This is Alan Moore's story.

DUN DUN.

Boy, America sure did luck out when Superman landed here, right? This friggin’ alien could have landed ANYWHERE ELSE on Earth! How much would that have sucked? Especially if he had landed in the hands of one of our enemies... like stupid Communist Russia. Imagine how terrible that would have been!

Actually, don’t imagine it, just read Superman: Red Son to see how it would’ve gone down (with 100% historical accuracy.)

We finally read about the mutant menace as our friends, Scott and Richard, join us to discuss Giant-Size X-Men #1 from 1975, one of the most important X-issues ever!

Not only was it the first new X-Men story in 5 years, but it also marked Wolverine’s 1st time with the X-Men as well as the 1st appearances of fan favorites Nightcrawler, Storm, and Colossus.

We’ll also meet Sunfire and Thunderbird and figure out why nobody remembers them (and no, it’s not just because they’re huge jerks.)

Also, Banshee is there but nobody cares about Banshee.

And, if you'd like to get a jump on next episode, we'll be reading Superman: Red Son!
