Episode 108: Spider-Man’s Radioactive… Fluids (Funny Jokes??)

On the 31st anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster, it’s definitely in excellent taste to talk about the history of radiation in comics! R…right? From heroes and villains with radioactive powers, to Spider-Man’s radioactive blood (and, um, other things), to the debate on whether the Atomic Age “radioactive origin” trope still works in today’s world, and how nobody likes Captain Atom — this episode is glowing green with great conversation!

Also: Kyle challenges Merk and Bry to a very educational quiz on intellectual property and fair use, and we dig into the Zero Issues mail bag and reply to some very real, definitely not made-up fan letters!

Are you ready to get so wet? Slip out of those stodgy old clothes, pop on a koi top and a couple of eels for pants, and let’s all relax with a nice refreshing glass of Agua, man, as we talk about the coolest son-of-a-lighthouse-keeper, A…Aquaman. We’re doing Aquaman this week. Okay? Okay.
