As Mentioned in Episode 56 – Death by Crossover

Listen to the podcast here!


  • Yaybo! Marvel Unlimited added New Mutants #36-40 just in time for this episode (starting here)!
  • In terms of formative influence, Kyle Baker’s Why I Hate Saturn was basically Rachel’s third parent.

    Not related to the episode, but you should know that Dr. Peter Corbeau appears briefly in this week Captain America and the Mighty Avengers.

      So many comments I’ve read about this have been basically “Yay, I hope this leads into X-Force!” Which saddens me tremendously.

      Comics Alliance had a poll for characters you’d like to see, but then only let you choose seven characters *and* listed characters from Generation X, New X-Men, Young X-Men, Generation Hope, and Wolverine and the X-Men. How can I vote in that poll when I can’t choose 9 characters that are the classic line-up being covered recently in the podcast? I ended up cutting Xi’an and Amara.

      What’s the point of having a New Mutants movie AND rebooting the X-Men to have them be teenagers?

      • pawpaw5771 says:

        The last few X-Men movies have jumped forward a decade each time. Perhaps the New Mutants will be from the 90s? When the X-Men are another 10 years older?

  2. I’m going to suggest that Rahne’s avatar of death is the Goddess Brigid

    who is 1) a goddess of music and occasionally shown holding a lyre or other musical instrument, and 2) is an interesting transitional goddess because she later becomes a saint, St Brigid, and so crosses some of the borders between pagan/gaelic mythology and the world of saints.

    She’s not related to the idea of death in any great way, but makes more sense than St Cecelia…
