Episode 20: Game Changers – Batman is a Series of Circles

This week, we’re tackling game changers, with very little prep! Hopefully it doesn’t show! Those things that have come, seemingly out of nowhere, and changed the comic book industry.

Which basically means talking about the X-Men a lot. Also: Bishop vs. Cable, the best-ever use of Stryfe, three Thors are better than one, and the boys try (and fail) to explain Hypertime!
