336: A Very Sticky Team-Up

IT’S TIME FOR ADVENTURE! Join us for a very special episode as Kyle steps into the sweet spider-chair of Madame Web to guide us on a role-playing game called “SPIDER and MAN” (as found on the wilds of Reddit)! Merk becomes Sticky! Bry becomes Skull Spider! Two Spider-Men of the Spider-Verse, tasked with protecting the Cosmic Cube! But when just entirely too many Green Goblins and Hobgoblins and Demogoblins (oh my) come gliding out of the woodwork to capture the Cube and plunge the multiverse into chaos, can our mismatched duo of Spider-Dudes roll the right dice to save the day? There’s only one way to find out: listening to this episode! This sticky, webby episode.

333: Kraven’s Cool Garfield Vest

It’s time to get silly! About being serious. This week, we take your non-nonsense, grim and dark, serious characters and turn them into something light-hearted, fun and zany! And then… we do the opposite!? Richie Rich gets spooky, kooky, and altogether ooky! Carnage becomes a little scamp in the Sunday funnies! Ben Grimm gets GRIM. Kraven the Hunter becomes Kraven the FUNter! And more pitches sure to drive any “too serious” fan over the edge… with laughter! (and hopefully not rage.)

In the warm-up, it’s a pitch for Capcom to resurrect the Marvel fighting game as a “Darkstalkers” style spin-off starring Dr. Strange, Scarlet Witch, and so many other Marvel magic characters! And such news: Bry gets manic about Michael Keaton getting manic! Merk gives ya all the Jack of Hearts developments your heart can handle! And Kyle has got a sweet tip on a modded Marvel vs. Capcom game that may just be perfect. Perfect… like this episode. (Nah, just kidding, but we hope you like it.)

332: Isn’t Batman a Verb Now?

It’s a big ol’ bat heavy episode this week! We’re talking odd, strange, adorable and down right wrong versions of Batman, as we rate them out of 5 Batmen on how Batman they Batman…. knowwadimean? We each bring a few batties to the table…..and some of them are pretty mite-ey! Wink! Plus we do a warm up creating a brand new Bat-villain …. out of houseplants…. and malicious compliance… it’ll make sense, we promise. All that and news about, well, guess! Batman spin offs on HBO. And other non-bat news about Spiderman, Finn Wolfhard and a certain Boys star arrested in Spain! Join us as we batman it up!

331: Low-Cal Batzone Zone

Coming to a theatre near you: crappy tie-in products! This week, we go over some of the best, worst, and most notorious tie-in junk that gets attached to comics and movies: from Baskin Robbins’ Hydra Force Sundae, to Watchmen condoms, to the Howard the Duck call-in line that definitely isn’t a sex thing (and if it is, big whoop, right?); there’s been some real air balls courtesy of our good friends at Synergy Ltd.!

But first! We’ve got Jon Bernthal-adjacent Punisher news (this episode was recorded before the announcement that Netflix was losing its’ Marvel original shows, whoops!), and a fast food-themed CharacterStorm! All that and Grimace!

330: It’s Disgusting Shakespeare, Is What It Is

Peacemaker cameth and wenteth, and we have many thoughts on what we have seen! How did the show rapidly evolve? What made it even possible? What parts do we especially love as shameless James Gunn fans? How amazing was that cast as a whole? What could possibly be in store for season two? And how about those last-episode cameos that we’re not sure if it’s cool to casually talk about in an episode description?? But we’ve got another special treat in honour of this hard-R foul gross-out romp: we don’t even TRY to bleep our swears or edit out our disgusting tangents! You’re welcome (we’re sorry)! May want to put in the headphones if there are kids around, seriously.

Oh, you think that’s all? Listen friend, don’t even worry about it, we’ve got multiple segments on this show! We talk about the new “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness” trailer, somehow both speculating and commenting on the state of over-speculation for literally everything. We’ve got news! Comixology updates and finally fully integrates with Amazon and nobody is happy about it, not even one bit! DC’s Wonder Twins are getting a movie on HBO Max (no, really)! And more!? And more!

329: The Sky is the Limit

Feeling angelic? Well, even if you don’t, we’ll make you feel like you’ve got wings! …. that was cheesy….. But seriously, we’re fixing characters this week! And our target is the ever flyin’ X-Man ANGEL! He’s been a character that, as we say right at the start, has often been the blandest of the X-Men. Or at least never really had more than a storyline or two where they took off as a character. We give you three different directions for the ANGEL…. the angelic mutant saviour, the multiple Angel angle, and the Defending Champion!
All that plus Merk gives you a 2 comic book tv shows…. one to avoid, and one to watch! Will you agree?
And news! Justice League Incarnate changes the face of a number of DC’s events from the past 40 years, Tony Stark pops the question, and DC Dinosaurs!! AND… AND…. Chanum Tattings.
Oh boyo boy! You don’t wanna miss this one. Chanum Taters. Er. Tattings. Whatever. It’ll make sense. See you there!

328: Merk Doesn’t Care About Children

Does the title of this episode shock you? Good! Now that we’ve got your attention, this week’s episode is about banned comics, or attempted-banned comics, or how exactly we got into this situation in the first place. All that, and a Comics Code Authority quiz!
But wait, there’s more! We dig up the corpses of some Golden Age characters who didn’t make it out of the Golden Age, because they were bad, and then point and laugh at them! Y’know, for kids!

327: KRAKAKOOM!

The lightning strikes once again! Last week was a longer episode, so this week it’s all random rapid-fire topics! We’re pit in a fight-inventing grudgematch between Prince Robot IV and Wolfsbane, under caaa-razy circumstances, and we decide the victor! We recast “The Eternals” with the great comedy actors of literally any era! Batman: Soul of the Dragon is a movie we think you should watch… now! Bry quizzes us with which Spider-Verse variants are real or fake! Kyle gets in on the quiz game as we have to guess if a list of characters were alive or dead in the year 2000! And then Merk steals the quizmaster crown to test our knowledge about what bizarre Defenders villains existed or not! All this and… wait, no, that’s it. That’s the show. It’s plenty of show!
