Episode 239: Fallen Angels


This week, once again, Vince forced me to read something before reading it himself. This time, he took me back to the 80s, following reject New Mutants in X-Men: Fallen Angels. The mini-series ran for eight issues, however I could only get through four. The problem is that it is very much an 80s series, requiring actual effort to muscle through it.

In our What We’re Reading segment, we covered some new Marvels, as well as the 7th issue of Secret Wars, which even Vince agreed was meh.

    hi gents,

    thanks for the podcast. Fallen Angels brought back some memories – I had read and enjoyed the series back in the day and it is somewhat dated and painful to read today. Nonetheless enjoyed the flashback. To add to the cheese, I remind you of the half-assed way that Sunspot and Warlock caught up with their New Mutant team-mates just in time for the “fall of the mutants” event – someone was scrambling to fit them in.

    I believe that the X-Factor issues you are referring to where Maddrox’s wayward duplicate returns is sometime in the early issues of the “new” X-factor shortly after the governmentalization of the team in issue 71. Then again this could have also been revisited at some other point.
