We're back in the Age of Apocalypse! This time we're reading the 4-issue Factor X miniseries that heavily focuses on Scott & Alex Summers, aka Cyclops and Havok.

Turns out Havok is a real jerk who wants to kill his brother. Rude!

We also get to know the evil mad scientist version of Beast who just wants to run genetic experiments on everything. Major creep.

Then we continued the Korvac Saga with Avengers #173. Michael Korvac actually makes an appearance in this one!

Next Time: Spider-Man 2099 (1992) #1-6

For today's episode, we're diving into one of the most poorly received Batman comics of all time from the "All-Star" creative team of Frank Miller and Jim Lee.
 
We had a good time reading All-Star Superman a while back, so how bad could this be? Embarrassingly bad? Offensively bad? Incomprehensibly bad? Maybe all of the above.
 
It's so bad that we needed our friend Nick from the Your Stupid Minds podcast to help us wade through it.
 
Join us as we read All-Star Batman & Robin #1-6, and then continue our long read of the Korvac Saga with Avengers #172.
 
Next Time: We return to the Age of Apocalypse with Factor X #1-4!
