Great for X-fans and list junkies.

I love War Rocket Ajax. Particularly the Every Story Ever portion of their podcast. However, I don't care about DC comics, so half the time I'm tuning out or skipping forward thru certain portions of the program. I was quite happy when discovering Battle of the Atom, because it takes my favorite portion of a great comics podcast and applies it exclusively to the X teams of Marvel comics. It's fun listening to people talk about comics I love (gotta agree to disagree on a few opinions) and also great to get info and recommendations of comics I haven't discovered yet. The hosts are goofy and fun. Adam's more laidback style works well with Zack's slightly manic enthusiasm as the two hosts banter. Keep up the great work and thanks for the podcast! X-men junkies, this podcast is for us!

Less survival and more lovin’ the experience.

Not sure what it is about these 2 X-Men fans but man! Do they make you wanna jus read X-Men comics everyday.. Since I don’t have the time to go through and find the gems, I’m glad Zack & Adam have, as well as starting this podcast! I enjoy binging and stocking up on episodes. Lots of X-Men knowledge as well as lots of laughs. Thanks gents for always giving me something to look forward to on Monday morning.

An escalator can never break: it can only become stairs. You should never see an Escalator Temporarily Out Of Order sign, just Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience.
