Marc’s Miserable Marvelous May continuous with one of New World’s final projects: an adaptation of the Marvel comic book GENERATION X created by Scott Lobdell and Chris Bachalo from director Jack Sholder! Peter Fluet returns to discuss the characters, world, and potential of this would-be feature-length pilot for a TV series that never was! We quiz Marc about who was from the comic book and who wasn’t, and, since it’s impossible to talk about GENERATION X without context of the era, we discuss the 1990’s of it all, including carnivals, fashion, and 1950’s-themed diners! Also, what brought about the true end of New World? And, most important of all: how great was Richard Grieco’s IF LOOKS COULD KILL? So get ready for some jubilation (except from Marc) as we examine yet another important part of the 1990’s MCU!
