Episode 68: Apocalypse – Let’s Talk Apoc

X-Men: Apocalypse was released in theatres last week… and we didn’t see it. So instead we decided to Talk Apoc and discuss other incarnations of that dastardly villain En Sabah Nur. Is it true he began as just a fill-in villain? What’s his link to Marlon Brando? Why does he constantly make robot sounds? Was he a Third Summers Brother? And how does that make ANY sense? Also: join us for the news (including the big Captain America Hydra controversy sweeping the Twitters), a dramatic classic X-Men reading, and further twists in the afterbirth of the birth of Rebirth after DC has just birthed it’s new birthy birth thing. And Baby Apocalypse. Babies all around!!

Episode 60: Overexposed Characters – Could Wolverine Be a Helicopter?

This week we’re talking about overexposed characters in comics and movies — your Deadpools, your Harley Quinns, your Wolverines… your Batmen? — and what impact becoming massively, all-consumingly popular can have on these characters and their natural appeal. Also: everything to know about DC Rebirth in 4 minutes and 30 seconds, rejected podcast topics, weird variant cover pitches, and a few tangents as the boys talk about the Ghostbusters reboot and then get super excited reminiscing about Colorforms!
