  1. I’m embarrassed to say that I didn’t get what Ron said when he said “Fay (sp) Xavier in the big helmet saying “To me my X-Men”. I don’t get the reference

  2. Got it! Thanks Conor!

  3. I like that “Larroca Faces” has become something of a reoccurring topic of conversation. It was keeping me away from Doctor Doom, but I’m happy it made the patron pick because if you guys hadn’t discussed it I would have given it a pass. I love Doom. I actually enjoyed that they brought him back to a more antagonistic role in Dan Slott’s FF.
