Presenting a joint podcast production with Peter from The Daily Rios podcast (where you can also listen and subscribe to The Legion Project), where we will discuss, issue by issue, the 1984 Legion of Super-Heroes (volume 3) series affectionately known as the “Baxter run”.

In this episode, we discuss Legion of Super-Heroes #8, “To Destroy a World!”. To save the universe, the Legionnaires inflict nuclear destruction on a sun-eater factory, and someone attempts to murder a descendant of Superman. Speaking of Superman, we also talk about DC Comics Presents #80, which features those “lost” Legionnaires.
