355: Sizzle War

The mutants are a-comin’! But how? How is Marvel going to fit a whole species into their already bloated slate of movies, TV shows, and other assorted bric-a-brac? That’s what we aim to figure out, this week!

But first: we’ve got a heaping helping of Constantine and Warner Bros Discovery news, the first on Paul Levitz and Alan Davis’s upcoming Avengers book, and we get in depth with Merk’s own comic-skewed version of the Pivot Questionnare from Inside the Actors Studio. All that and Merk being so very, very wrong about steak sauce!

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!

223: It’s a Terrible

IT’S A TERRIBLE…costume. Terrible. The worst. Which character wins THAT distinct honour? There are plenty battling in that secret war. Join us as we discuss ridiculous costumes! PLUS…. we go over a bevy of movie news, from Christian Bale’s reported talks to join Thor, to Scott Derrickson exiting Dr Strange, and the new New Mutants trailer, Morbius rumblings and the ‘indefinite delay’ of the Hawkeye series (it may have been because he was going to wear THIS costume). All that AND Kyle debuts a new warm up game! BLOCKBUSTER STORM!! PS- Bon Jovi hates apes.

211: Fluff Me

This is the end, beautiful friends…. for these unfortunate characters! This week we pitch endings in the spirit of several Marvel titles that tell the last story of that character. However we don’t know which characters until the last second so we’re making up their endings on the fly!! How does Machine Man go offline? How does Angel fall to earth? How does Spidey sputter? How does Blade bite it? That plus a House of X game, witness (with your ears) the origin of JIMBERJACK, get a rundown of some Marvel NYCC news, Joker movie first weekend numbers, and a bizarre, rambling open that even we don’t understand how we went from Namorita to ‘what is a casserole’? Join us, won’t you? And please bring your favourite casserole.
