Loikamania 095: The AVX Special

This week, Pat is joined by Travis Holyfield as we talk about Marvel’s big summer event, Avengers vs. X-Men. We start off with a debate on which side of the fight is truly right, with Pat representing the X-Men, and Travis rooting for those gaudily clad fascists known as the Avengers. We follow it up by discussing the entirety of act 1 of the event, talking about the plot, our favorite bits, and some tie-in talk as well. A very fun and spirited debate, so check it out!
