One thought on “Episode 50: X-Cutioner’s Song Part 1

    Great episode and a fun topic! Some history here (I know research). The main stable of writers/artists had recently left Marvel and the new guys had to come up with a crossover quick. After 1990’s wildly popular Xtinction Agenda, then 1991’s X-books relaunch with #1s, the pressure was high for 1992. So Xcutioners Song was devised and promised the reveal of Cable’s true origin (though the crossover didn’t deliver on that). As you said, very mixed response from fans (myself included).

    However, you can talk about Xcutioner’s Song without talking about the polybags and trading cards. If you had mentioned that, not sure any of these issues will get acquitted. 🙂
