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 at the Fire and Water Podcast Network entitled 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. It's filled with Legion goodness!

Introducing Pilgrim-One and Babbage!
Gotta respect a dude for punching Lobo in the face, even if he really doesn't have just cause.
The Blasters make a comeback on Starlag II! (No one cares.)
The Time Trapper? Smells like Zero Hour up in here.
Valor meets the love of his life... or does he?
Valor: The Quest for Peace
Ah damn, Lori turns out to be Glorith after all! (Still sexy, yo.)
Glorith changes history by letting Valor die.
It will be up to the future Mon-El to Mulligan Valor's career.
