Valor: The Journey from Invasion to Zero Hour

He was born in the ashes of Invasion, and he will die on Zero Hour. Call him Lar Gand, Mon-El or Valor, he has a very specific destiny. Unless history collapses of course, then destiny means nothing. Before starting their new podcast, Zero Hour Strikes!, Bass and Siskoid come together for one last First Strike: The Invasion Podcast to cover this Daxamite bridge between the two crossovers, and address your final feedback on the 40-part podcast series.
