Episode 100: Yuck

One hundred episodes! No, for real, we’ve done one hundred episodes!

Time to rest on our laurels, right? Time to stay stagnant, and not change anything ever, right? Wrong, nerds! We’re talking about how that other long-running thing, comics, have tried to change things p with characters and stories over the years, in an effort to “stay fresh.” What’s worked, what failed miserably? And how much would you pay for a second ongoing Saga book?

Plus: we cast the, uh, cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia  as the Fantastic Four, and we celebrate Ash Wednesday! All of this, live, from our castle in the sky.

Episode 96: Just a Page of Cyclops Crying

What happens… when good guys… go bad? Whether it’s due to brainwashing, reality-altering, mental breakdown, or just plain ol’ choosing evil, hero heel turns are a proud comics tradition! We talk about the bests and the worsts, from the slow breakdown of the Scarlet Witch, to Hal Jordan going evil and/or being possessed by a yellow space bug, to Deathstroke’s stupid insta-evil drugs, and whether the Superior Spider-Man counts as a body-swap or brainwashing. Also! We discuss how to save Agents of SHIELD and tie it closer to the Marvel movies (but not THOSE ones), and finally try to come up with a proper tag line after like 3 years!

Episode 95: Opposites Attract

 

Sad National Opposites Day, nobody! In dishonor of the day, we’re not talking about bizarros, or negative versions of pre-existing characters. We absolutely don’t mention Zazzo-Plus, we don’t try to distinguish between different kinds of opposites, and we refuse to make up new opposites for characters.

Uh, not also: Kyle continues to do no haikus ever in the warmup, and Merk debuts the worst new ongoing segment, Character Storm!
