218: Death by a Thousand Snyder Cuts

Release the Snyder Cut! I guess! There’s somehow still talk of this thing (possibly more talk, even), so this week, we’re coming up with our own Snyder Cuts. How do you fix a movie like Justice League, anyway? And how could you fix other movies in the same way?

Plus, we’re talking about comic book piracy. When indie books are being downloaded by the hundreds of thousands, and the creators are broke, is that cool? On the flipside, comic books are damned expensive, dawg. Like, real ‘spensive. We solve this problem*!

All that, and Kyle manages to contribute to the news for once.

216: Hawkman’s Pal Doug

Y’know those pals who are, like… un-super pals? This week we’re talking about the friends, the sidekicks, the hangers-on of the superhero stars! Whether they’re teen sidekicks for the kids to relate to, or middle-aged schlubs for the writer of the comic to relate to, they’ve been loitering around the panels for decades! So in their honour, let’s: Find some new powerless pals for famous superheroes! Pitch a new “League of Losers” team (are you listening, Mr. Bendis?)! Have a friggin’ RICK JONES QUIZ! Snap into action!!

Plus, news! The Snyder Cut keeps threatening to be released! An X-Man is a Canadian Member of Parliament! “Joker” has made a bunch of money! Ben Mendelsohn makes us bleep ourselves! And maybe even more!?

210: Flowers for Dick

Ruination! This week, we set out to ruin some of our favourite characters. Kinda like all those times that we’ve tried to fix characters that haven’t gotten their fair shake, but the opposite. Moon Knight, Thor, and Nightwing are so screwed after this (assuming that Marvel ,and DC listen to this podcast [they won’t]).

We’ve got that, plus: more CW Crisis news (this thing needs more cameos, I say), and some more new Amalgam characters! Let’s get ruined!

194: It Takes a Papa Smurf to Build a Village

Ryan Mackett, the TBay Movie Guy, joins us once again! In honour of Father’s Day, we celebrate all the best dads and father figures in comics – your Uncle Bens, your Pa Kents, and all the other Dads and Honourary Dads that inspire us to be our best selves and tell us to stop screwin’ around with the thermostat, dammit. And there may be a Dad Quiz! That’s right: DAD QUIZ!

But first, we dive into the news (and inevitable controversy) of Robert Pattinson’s casting as Batman, and then submit Mr. Mackett to a barrage of random questions! Things get personal, we connect, it’s all very lovely.

183: Nothing Like Hot Yogurt

Does anybody here like food?

This week, we get reeeal snacky, and talk all about food in comics. Does Superman really need to eat? What is the worst thing that the Ninja Turtles have ever ordered on a pizza? Is Boo Berry a racist, or is calling him racist the actual racist thing? None of these questions are answered.

181: Do the Webs Come From the Claws?

Do you ever get tired of the same old powers? Day after day, the same heat vision, the same boring adamantium claws? Well, have comics got the solution for you! That’s right, this week we’re talking about all the times our favourite heroes got ridiculous new powers! Sometimes Wolverine gets HOT CLAWS, sometimes Spider-Man gets stingers out of his wrists, sometimes Superman just blue himself. And each and every time, these new powers were here to stay! (R…right?)

But that’s not all! We’ve got controversies to discuss in the worlds of comics and comic-movie news, Merk breaks down the new status quo for Guardians of the Galaxy, and we just… get pretty silly all around. Enjoy??
