"Who you know certainly could pop up again any day now in and be interesting comex on but i just think for it's like you know it's that crossover between a jim starling adam warlock cosmic saga and like dc's crisis on infinite earths but just with so little to ground you in like in stakes in in character. i it just never worked for me and again. It's one of those things. Where like i know. There's people who are in on. Oh yeah like the excalibur qabli. Yeah he's just drawn to excalibur and alan davis specifically in really likes it. So you know it's very it's very An acquired taste. I suppose and Taste i have never acquired despite my intentions. I mean i you know it's funny too. 'cause like al davis is famously. Like one of the best night. Crawler artists of all time nightclubs. My favorite x. men character. You know one of my favorite marvel characters wall time yet. When i read excalibur i so rarely unlike. Oh sweet night crawler book. They could just i. It so rarely gives me that. I like i so i i would say like character actually worked for me. In general. Like with allen davis. I think he's got a good voice for characters It's it's the plotting in the world building stuff that just like he doesn't like where jim starling just has that like perfect control where you were just like you feel like you're being carried along when somebody who's like just in the hands of somebody who's really confident in what kind of a story they're telling and like what you need to know what you don't need to know like you know about his like world building like some of it doesn't make sense but he just like brushes aside. You don't need to know that you don't even think about that. You don't need to know that whereas yeah right way too bogged down in all the details. That aren't important and you just like you get really sucked up. Because it's also mixing with the silly..

"Really interesting now, Douglas said. This this is Douglas Kennedy. I'm overwhelmed just by being able to view Mr Sir Hand face to face. I think I've lived my life both in fear of him and his name in one way or another. And I am grateful today to see him as a human being worthy of compassion and love. To Kennedy. Children say Let him go Six. Say no. And now California parole board staff. There is a California parole board as I Indicated earlier. Have 120 days to review the transcript of the hearing and make a recommendation to Governor Newsom. Newsom, who is currently facing a recall election will have 30 days to a pole reverse or modify the decision. So it goes to the California parole Board. I have the listener who called so there's no parole board. There is just Google it. It's right there. And, uh, 120 days to review a transcript of the hearing and make a recommendation. Boy. Oh, boy. Ray calling from Santa Rosa Ray. Welcome to K G O I'm with the six Cantonese There has to be John. There has to be some consistency. And you just can't. Uh, let one guy go who assassinated? Uh, a very influential politician who was going to, uh, challenge Nixon for President. Whether I don't know if he would have got the nomination. But then again, you have to consider Gavin Who said on his watch that there would not be any executions even though Californians voted back in the death penalty, and then you also have to consider that scumbags horrible people's adult deserve to live like Richard Allen Davis, who murdered Poly Class this I don't know if he's still alive or not. I hope he's dead. But the, uh East Sacramento rapist murderer No, I understand all that. But the bottom line. I want to get to a few more colours here. Your bottom line is Don't give him parole and I agree with you. Uh, Let me go to, uh Dan calling from Salinas, Dan. Welcome to K G O. Hi, John. How's it gon? I'm great. Um If I had to decide between jail for him and letting him out, I go jail, but I was wondering, do they ever We spent a lot of money to keep the man do they ever make us make a third option for home confinement? They can on a gun. I might be okay with that, but never for total freedom. The only thing is he'd be living with his brother. But look, I have to tell you, I mean, I understand what you're saying. But I wouldn't let him out. I agree. That's better than I would never let him have total freedom. Right. All right, Dan. Thanks very much. Let me go to David calling from, uh San Francisco David, Welcome to KGO. Hi, John. I, uh, I both know, um, I was fortunate. I think I was old nine or 10 to be able to go and shake Bobby's hand when he came to San Francisco just before he went to Southern California. I think it was an ABC studios. Yes, it was exactly San Francisco. You're correct and You know? Aside from the I mean, it's a major fact that he actually assassinated someone who would have so much impact on our history, but from a humanitarian standpoint. What he did. He killed the father of eight Children. I don't know how Ethel man. Unfortunately, Kennedy's had a lot of money, and they were able to do things in a way that maybe others would not. But he murdered the father of eight Children who had to grow up without him. Fortunately had other people that influenced them. And I just think that Those type of crimes are unforgivable. In that respect. My mother raised four of us with, uh by herself. I can't imagine trying to do that with eight I understand completely it. It's not fathomable to me. That, uh That he should. Get out. I I just don't see it. I'm was a Doug and Bobby Jr Robert. Yeah. Yes. And I've met Robert Junior reforms. I'm surprised But maybe, you know, I was thinking maybe we're the was the younger ones who weren't really able to reflect. Don't just Douglas was a baby when that happened. Listen, I gotta let you go. But I appreciate your observation. I know we're gonna be talking more about this, but I want to get in the commercials and then Jan wall and will rock and roll with jam right here on K G O John Rothman on KGO 8 10.

"It could be anything right Time of day at Berkeley. They're debating on a city level whether to eliminate Traffic officers. So they would stop the enforcement of traffic violations by the police department, but they want to replace it. With cameras, cameras no with unarmed officers from the city's Department of Transportation. They want to hire public works officials who would be unarmed to do parking enforcement in traffic stops and things like that. I thought that was kind of a novel idea. Do you think about that? Um Well, you know, First of all, there are what people do in traffic. It can be dangerous. And a lot of people die each year from reckless driving across the country, You know, I mean, if you if you're down on Shattuck and people are flying down that street and he had all the people wandering across, people could get hurt, right? I mean, It's a pretty busy section and you know you do I, which is? Ah, that's a real crime. Yeah. I mean, you know in traffic, how many times do they stop somebody in traffic, and it turns out that that person was doing something really illegal and you know, and it's just the nature of criminals. You now they caught Timothy McVeigh. Right. A traffic stop, right? No. His license plate it falling off. The cops ought pull them over. And that started the chain of events. So, yes. Oh, knuckleheads tend to do knucklehead things and everything they do. So what you're saying is it s so if it's an unarmed public works employee pulling somebody over the date you I'm trying to let this out just out loud, and that is If this person who is behind the wheel is guilty of something more than just whatever traffic violation was spotted by the city employees, Then maybe you do need to call backup. It's apart of the investigatory powers. So here's the deal. He's just kind of quit pawn over black people because they're black. Okay, you need to follow the 14th Amendment. The probable cause. And for the rest of people quit acting like such a horse. Tio officers, the cops that aren't doing anything wrong, You know, I mean, if accomplice being a real jerk, remember their job. And, you know, I mean, if they're being a jerk to you, and you sensitive because of the color of your skin, and you could remove yourself in that situation, But despite leaving way escalate, But we do this so well in our society today, we know we've seen injustice and say, Well, you think that's bad? Watch this right and they take it to another level. So I mean, you know, I mean, on one hand, you know what? The story we're talking about, By the way, Chip Franklin for Nicky this week with Brett Burkhardt, and we're talking about this. Ah, apparently this loophole in 35 states that allow cops to have sex with detainees. There's a law federal also, you can have sex with prisoners. But since they have been actually charged with anything yet it's party down. So you know the problem with with police in this country is ah, noticeable and severe and we have to do something about it, however. There are a lot of communities in America that don't have from's with this, and you know what we need to do is in places where you have large minority groups. Whether is Hispanic, or African American. You've got to get cops in there that reflect that community, then know the people that can negotiate these things down like no. Instead of letting it go the other direction. How do you do that? Traffic, community oriented policing right? Exactly, And you know, here's the thing with traffic nowadays is. Cops can't give anybody a break anymore because we'll be accused of favoritism or racism. In other words, if I got a guy who's driving, you know, 45 a 35 and I and I pull him over and I realized the guys, you know, seems like a solid citizen, and I just want to say, you know, I don't want But if he was African American, and I became a ticket, because maybe he, you know, I see a joint the car in an open beer or something, right? I mean or flip it around and say that, you know, I let that the black I go and I'm a black officer and I stopped a white so I mean You know what I mean? How do we do this and move forward? It's got to be a dialogue. We've gotta be able to talk about it. Number one. We need cops. Yeah, I mean, we need we do need cop. Would you agree? Yeah, absolutely. I mean, you talk about officers not being able to let people go during a traffic stop. I mean, the biggest high profile case I can think of is Richard Allen Davis was pulled over in the North Bay by an officer and let go. By the way. Can you stop you there? Anybody has their middle name when you're talking about him. Sounds like either a serial killer or presidential candidate. But go ahead yesterday, Helen Davis, right training. So what happened was he was pulled over in the North Bay and then let go. And in the trunk of his car was Polly Klass. Jeez. Yes, well, there you go. That's the example of why you don't let people go exactly well, and you know, you know that did you know that's why they give criminals the middle name is so they don't malign somebody else that has the same right deserves is such a common name. Yeah, well, any name they do that with, like, you know me Ted Bundy. They didn't because it's a pretty unusual name, but they did it with, you know. Well, you know Lee Harvey Oswald. You know, you're just a Lee Oswald going to say, And I did. What? No, no, I mean, you mean Harvey Oswald. There's my cousin. Anyway, so coming up, we'll tell you about the story that I was a bit earlier. What if Trump decides He's not going to leave office. It's not as easy as a lot of people are picturing it because he needs help. And if those people help them, they could be arrested. We'll tell you who those people are. And all that. Next. You listen to the morning show with the Commodore. I'm Chip Franklin sitting in and with Brett Burkhardt. This is kgo. The K G all morning show with Chip Franklin filling in for Nikki Maduro on KGO Aten. Hi. This is Jay Farner, CEO of Rocket Mortgage.

"However, Allen Davis has run her power seemed back to their pre mutant massacre mode. Granted I'm not a kitty Pryde expert heads me asking the question. So I'm not sure what happened in the interim. But then I remember her powers acting more uncontrollable during God loves man kills two AK when Claremont was back. So my question basically was. Kitties powers, slashed the mutant massacres effects in them are in that nebulous does a what does the writer? Remember it status if they were tacitly fixed until Clermont red Condit, or if there is ever an official fix to them as far as I can tell kitty gradually recovered over the several years after the mutant massacre, partly through deliberate work effort in partly just through recovery. Her powers have been varying Lee controllable over the years, what her defaults state was whether it was phased or solid has has varied been slightly less consistent. Our since the mutant massacre than it was before based on a combination of external factors and her state of mind at the time. Yeah. I remember there being mentioned here and there in Excalibur before this of could you working on regaining control that by bed of not being default faced all the time. But I don't think there is any one big turning point and having searched Google, and our various resources and the text of our own episode notes of for while this afternoon that didn't turn anything specific up. So yeah, I think you're right. I think it's just sort of whatever the writer decides. After last on Twitter, Jahan miles. What would your powers be under the Victor von doom paradox? Now as a reminder to those of you who have forgotten her didn't listen, that's that's that's when people's names directly, inform or reflect their powers etymological destiny. Right. So what do you think miles? You've I feel like you've got a lot more going for you here than I do right miles Stokes. Okay. So we have a unit of distance. And then we have a term for either empowering a fire or being excited. Now, if we're talking like superhero comic style powers, I'm gonna say, let's take Myles as being miles per hours wishes to say speed instead of distance you could get both in basically have a power that was essentially seven league boots you could. But but what I ended up with was that the more excited. I get the faster I can go which I feel like for me actually, kinda makes a lot of sense. Oh, cool in that. Actually, incorporates your first and last name, exactly. Or like, maybe for a more combat power. I could speed up the motion of electrons. So as to create friction and stoke some sort of electrobi- or heat and a target. I feel like that's a reach. So maybe let's just go with the thing where I get really excited, and then I'd get fast. So my my name, or at least the name might Meyer regional name doesn't include any any any common nouns or any any any words that would imply powers, but as a result of that specifically my last name does come with an occasionally useful power in real life. And that is being related to every single other person with the surname editing within about three two or three generations because it is a name that has been through so many different translations that it's unique to one family. That said when you say you're full name. It does kind of remind me of wolverine comma, killing Jay, comma, editon like editing, which is the thing that you do. But the thing is that's phonetic. That's not the word and it falls apart. If it's written down, which is an important component of the Victor von doom paradox. Because it's comics based that is a very good point. Now, we are entirely listener supported podcast and some of those tiers of support come with knowledgeable on the show from a range of fictional characters. In concepts today miles is is doing double duty. And the the Mike is not going to one character. But it is going to be shared between sexy. Rogue and sexy gambit, I gotta say Remmy Sam big use quadruple data idea. Yours is unorthodox is wearing a prom dress to funeral but dang if the rate more chemistry than a high school curriculum with these folks, maybe it's common experience you and I've been trying to find happiness in the face of death and plane crashes and badly handled.

"We should I feel like we should we should talk to Logan about somehow tying tying this into whatever we do for the next summer special. I love this plan. Anyway, meanwhile, in our earth, the real world Allen Davis had as we said just ended his superlative run writing and drawing this book he had ended by tying up a lot of dangling plot threads and doing a great job of just sort of going back through pretty much all of clermont's history on the run at pulling from some other places to to give us this amazing amazing finale. So let's see what happens next because it's a superhero comic, something always. Happens next specifically Excalibur number sixty eight facades part one of a dead space. I guess this is plotted by Scott lobbed L scripted by dance slot penciled and colored by Steve Collado and inked by Harry Candelaria. And the story opens with captions informing us that between issues captain Britain got dragged off by temporal wave on the way back from earth, eight eleven whoops. What the hell? This is almost as bad as cyclops dying off screen in X men three which was easily in the top fifteen terrible things in X men three. I would argue that this is actually worse because there we at least had some surrounding context in here. It's just like oh. And by the way, this happened. I was so mad at this issue when I bought it when I was a kid because I loved captain Britain. I had the trade paperback of like the second half of his big run the one after Allen Davis that was by Jamie Delano. He'd become one of my favorite. Characters or at least my favorite sort of second tier characters and all of a sudden he was gone with barely any explanation. Also gone from the team is Meghan who is sufficiently upset by captain Britain's disappearance that she has taken leave in order to pursue a new full-time career of being sad in a waterfall. It's actually pretty cool. She sort of merged with the water of the waterfall, and it's just sort of staring off sadly into space, and it works pretty well. I'm not a huge fan of Steve book Lotto's art in this issue. But certain little bits work. And I think this is one of them, and I will say there is a grand plan for captain Britain disappearing in for Meghan getting semi catatonic like is not utterly without context. But still reading this month to month that sucked he's gonna come back with a mullet and a terrible codename, but pretty awesome costume that. I used to drawn notebooks and school all the time. I love that like righteous mullets are what you get. When you fall into the space time continuum for a while that. That sounds about. Right. Did the eighties? Come out of the space time continuum. I mean, I guess technically I was gonna say by definition. Yes. But anyway, one of our other lineup changes is that Micromax has suddenly joined the team, you know, the size changing guy who is working with secret agent issue organization f I six awhile back who there wasn't really that much interesting about. Yeah. He was kind of a jerk and boring and now he's on Excalibur and might be running it, or at least think that he is. Although nobody else really seems to agree Micromax does have one ally on the team. At least Keilan is staunchly in favor of Micromax is enthusiasm for fight training. And Micromax for his part is likewise unimpressed with x caliber all the files at six labeled. This team is the peculiar mutant team, you know, exploding bathrooms dinosaur d'appel ganders cross time Capers all. I've seen during my observation period is a bunch of angst ridden super types, all of whom are morbidly over obsessed with death speaking of which one of those super types. Kitty Pryde is currently falling apart because Ileana Rasputin her best friend is dying in America. This takes place, by the way, a bit before uncanny x men three three which we covered in episode two thirty. And this is something that's happened. A lot to kitty. I mean, not as much as it's happened to colossus, but still the people she cares about sort of dying off one by one. And that's going to continue to be a theme throughout a lot of her life. What she's got now that you won't have later, though, is Ferron kitty Pryde. I command you to stop crying. Don't you knock and be you can't just command a person to stop crying?.

"So J I've been wondering what's on your mind miles. Where does the Phoenix force come from? That's a complicated question. The Phoenix has led a fairly I tint existence. Although it could be argued that as cosmic force. It's technically omnipresent doesn't have a specific origin point. Or has. It always been around. Officially it is a child of the universe. Born in the void between states of being make of that. What you will? Okay. That's very abstract, but it just happened to manifest as a giant flaming bird. Well, if we're going to go there, we're going to have to talk about its mythic origins, or I guess the mythic origins of the concept of Phoenix's at they developed on earth since that's where the writers and artists who actually created the Phoenix force as an idea or from. I know Phoenix's show up in a lot of mythology. Right. They do. But here's the interesting thing signs actually point to them being based on an actual bird. Wait seriously. What kind of bird immolate itself and rises from its own ashes will not actually do that. But there is a type of bird. That's flame colored hangs out in highly alkaline volcanic lakes, which look fiery from a distance. And at least it's exit hop large mounds that pretty closely resemble the mythic Phoenix pyre what kind of raptor does. That. Oh, oh miles. The Phoenix isn't based on raptor. Then what it's based on Fleming goes what? I'm Jay added and miles Stokes. And we are here to explain the X men because it's about time. Someone did welcome tap is so two hundred twenty four of and two miles. Explain the X men where we walk you through the ins the outs and the wreck cons of comics greatest superhero, soap opera and St. into one of my very favorite arcs of x caliber. I'm glad what are your favorite ARC's? Because it's it's the last one Jay this is Ellen Davis Davis's last arc of x caliber the series will continue. But we'll definitely judge. It a lot harder. We will especially some of those later writers bus which other ones. But yeah, this is really the end of an era. I mean, allegations run is very much its own thing. Of course. But it's also distinctly a sequel to the Chris Claremont Allen Davis run as much as it's a continuation at this point the voices of both Clermont. And Davis are going to be off the book. Once we finish this episode. Yeah. But what a way to go out. I mean. Alan Davis's run. So far as writer has been largely predicated on tying up and sort of picking up. These amazing loose ends and loose plot. Threads and tying them together into this fantastic. Whole and in a lot of ways I feel like this story is a pretty good metaphor and a pretty good pin to put into all of that. It really is. I mean Davis tying up not just up from x caliber but stuff from the history of the characters who are in caliber. I mean, this is really the climax of for instance, Rachel summers story up until this point well and also in even more. So he's taking a lot of disparate and conflicting and complex timelines elements of those timelines and resolving them with an incredibly marvelously elegant solution which will get too much much later in the episode for now, I feel like we should talk about the background that's going to go into this. Because again..

"These are plotted by Davis scripted by Scott loved Al penciled by Joe Madureira who is doing his very best Allen Davis complete with extra swoopy hair and inked by Joe Rubinstein and actor Collazo. And we're going to talk about Joe Madureira for a second. I think we've covered at least one story he did in a previous special or something he's going to be on Kenny x, men's longtime pencil or a little over a year from this. But this for me is the first time in style is really looked like him his characters. The very anime inspired almost look like action figures, and I love it. Do you think this looks like him to me, this looks like him doing his best to do a really good both Alan Davis and art Adams who are the two artists who he's very clearly working heavily off of here and should be for the story to make sense in this context like we can. We can see bits of his style poke through. But right now what's what really impresses me is how well he manages to fuse that old art Adams, the original art. Adam story that this is this is pulling off of into the current house style of Excalibur totally. The returning characters like you could almost think it was just pages out of that original story. So speaking of x factor, this is building on a story that was originally told an x. factor number forty, one and forty two, which we covered an episode. One hundred eighteen extruded the grappling arms that can those issues. We met a kid named Thomas Jones, who had the power to transmute matter into any substance whose molecular construction. He understo-. Stood. He's codename, which I don't believe ever came up in that story was alchemy and he was actually a fan created character who won a contest in the story. He was kidnapped by old school mythological trolls, not the red at kinds who wanted to turn a bunch of stuff into gold, and they were gonna venues that gold or the increased amount of gold in the world to destabilize the world's economy and takeover, which is a plot that is still very much enjoy. Oh, likewise, so much. Now those trolls were thwarted and Tom turned several of them into first golden, then led and left them around London statues before fucking off to university where he studied chemistry. Now, this story is actually a second hand flashback, right? It's going to be revealed that everything we're seeing here is a story being told by gesture of the crazy gang to a very enthusiastic audience. So while we often get the quote unquote real, and we also get scenes with with gesture speculatory narration, which is pretty great given that it's up to you, how canonical you wanna consider the events here. They're not going to tie closely into really much else. Alchemy himself is going to reappear briefly and x men, legacy, and then play a very significant role in death of axe after which she will die. So yeah, he's he's, he's not going to be a major player in the universe, and I'm not sure the trolls really ever come back after this and the folks to whom Justice telling this may be apocryphal story as as revealed at the end of the arc. He is. He is. He what he is telling them as the story of how most of England's twelve population was re homed the crazy gang's weird little Allison. Wonderland utopia where they are currently all living happily so charming well as for the contents of this flashback in the immortal words of the thing from that one issue of marvel team up what happen? Well to start with x calibre, unsuccessfully combing. The sewers for the escaped satire, nine was distracted by nearby screaming. They rushed to the rescue, but found only two, policemen, both turn to gold Cerise was able to use her alien tack to find out that they're alive. My sensors indicate the presence of sub epidermal fully operational internal Organs Act of cardio respiratory elections. These are human beings transmuted into gold. I mean, yeah, that science pretty much checks out. It absolutely does not. Meghan goes into her awesome wolf form. And I love how Joe Madureira draws her in that to track the perpetrators, but fines. Whoa, a bunch of trolls. Some of whom we've recognized for old factor. So who. Are returning characters here. Well, we have foam who's a sasquatch, hey, native to the Pacific, northwest.

"But meanwhile, the majority of it has gone to her Madeline prior and her extra universal daughter, Rachel. Net chrome comes back to take on the Phoenix fights. Rachel along with the distant descendant also named Farren Rachel vanquishes NetCom by embracing the full power of the Phoenix, which gives for a snazzy green costume and renders coma tos basically that, yeah, basically that I should note that this is far from the full history and continuity of the Phoenix force. There is a lot more including. Getting down with Odin and whole bunch of CR stuff in a big fancy sword, and we will get there eventually. But for now, our focuses x caliber in the Phoenix is only relevant as it directly pertains to that. So we're going to save that for some kind of future Phoenix spotlight in which will bring down the podcast and rice from its ashes or something quivalent and for now, let's look at Excalibur number fifty. One don't drink the water. This is written of course, by the inestimable Alan Davis. It's penciled by guest pencil or Doug Braithwaite and inked by Jeff Albrecht Jose Marzan Mark McKenna, and Jimmy palm Yati. It's neat seeing more and more names that we recognize these it totally is. Yeah. With the creative team like that with Dave is not pencil. You'd think this was a fill in issue that would be kind of inconsequential. I mean, it sort of is it is the best kind of x caliber fill-in though because it feels like Excalibur again Davis is still writing it. It's not like he's off the title. Or off doing something else. And Doug Braithwaite while he's not Allen Davis does a very good job and a kinda wanna start with the cover because it's an Allen Davis cover. And at this point, every issue is one that I turn to and say, oh, I remember that one all of the covers are so terrific in so distinctive. This one though is is a particular delight. Even among those, it's a parody of caliber number one's cover whose composition we've all seen reference to few times over the course of the series. This one features a heraldic caliber made up of lizard people and banner advertising, new look, new logo, new species. I do love these cover references. I mean, some of them are overdone like giant-sized expert number one cover with all the heroes bursting through the page. That's kind of overdone, but this is great because it's always a really bizarre take. We had the crusader acts thing from Excalibur number twenty. One. We have the x. men, gold annual number one, where we came back to the original five caliber members is always so much fun. That was the one where Rachel summers was wearing. One of the podcast t shirts, which was so cool. Cool. Oh man. I am never going to get over like us or our stuff showing up in actual comic books, and that I am convinced is now at this point, the most meta t shirt in the multi because not only did it appear in canonical x-men comic, but it was in the the Lila Cheney I will steal your heart music video and we have a picture of Emma bull who the member of the actual real world band cats laughing. The plays with Lila in marvel. Comics wearing it. Are we in the Saint elsewhere universe? Like we ourselves? Is that a thing is this just all one big Medicom to nudity and we're just some numbered earth in the middle of it. I feel like that would explain a whole whole lot about current American politics if only we could go back in time to fix it. But as we learned from Asia summers, it doesn't work that way, but speaking of better universes, we're gonna look at one right now on that is is earth ninety nine, four seventy six, and it is populated by lizard. People wish your fundamentally better than regular people. Because while some mammals, terrible. Every lizard is a good lizard and in this world of lizard people, we, of course, have a lizard x caliber, and I love each one more than the last. So who've we got on the team, we have filling the role of captain Britain britannicas wrecks, which does sound pretty good for a captain Britain name. And the youngest member of the team shadow Komsic Nathan listeners, I challenge you to find a more charming superhero name..

"Wind back in time into kitty prides body days future passed i mean it makes sense don't get me wrong that she wouldn't remember that because you know her memory is being messed up or a big part of her character archer character storyline but for it to come back now it feels i dunno triumphant i guess it feels triumphant in it feels like again a callback to things that had largely been if not forgotten set aside within the comics continuity this is a writer saying i did my homework i found those loss threads i picked them up i pattern them into a tapestry and it's one of those moments that i feel that as as someone who tends to be fairly character focused reader it's the kind of moment that i really love that really feels like it's kind of in there for me because i do remember that stuff and it always makes me so happy when someone else doesn't cares you don't need that stuff for a good story you don't need it for good superhero story but it's always really cool to see pulled back in and that's i think that's one of the great thing about reading about writing in shared universe like really long running shed universe superhero comics as a fan of that kind of my new say is that you've got so many great weird bits and hooks to pull from and davis does that just beautifully completely completely agreed in well said well i celebrate decides it's now or never time to take the fight to neck rahm unfortunately they are currently stuck in the basement of the lighthouse cerise enclosed them in a solid lights fear and gets them up into the lighthouse proper but kitty still can't phase them through the tower as outside farren flies off to confront netcom kyle and follows him and it just doesn't really work farren can sort of deflect net crumbs attacks but it's obvious that he's not gonna make any headway or even last for very long without the phoenix force i really love the shattering mystical shield effect as net crumbs apps farren this one of my favorite little allen davis things the way he draws sorcery as.
