283: Do You Know What Happens to Darkseid When he’s Hit By Lightning?

Since the beginning, the superhero works of Zack Snyder have loomed large over this podcast. The source of debates, disagreements, and endless jokes. But now, our greatest challenge yet has arrived, and the team is united as they… watch Zack Snyder’s Justice League and talk about it for a while, I dunno! But that’s not all: Jamie “The Roastmaster” Nichols joins to help, bringing the perspective of a movie fan who doesn’t know much about the original comics! But first: What is the Mystery of Meemaw? Can you pinpoint the exact place we stopped bothering to bleep out F-words? Can you guess which one of us was secretly Martian Manhunter the whole time? Find out as you reach around into this extra-long, extra-sweary episode brought to you by RNC Coffee (promo code: zeroissues) and The Goofy Movie on Disney Plus!

272: Wondy, Mando, and the “Multiplicity” Sequel

Kick off 2021 with us as we dig into a couple of the big releases of the season: Wonder Woman 1984 and The Mandalorian! We’ve got some different, and at times complicated, takes on these two, and we hope we have something a little more interesting to say than a lot of the reactions online. But that’s not all! We hear about Chip Zdarsky and Jason Loo’s graphic novel “Afterlift”, react to the potential Michael Keaton Cinematic Universe, a potential Bat-revival, the Eternals, a new Spider-Man costume, and more – oh my!

Another week, another fun podcast! This week the boys are talking about offshoot characters. Characters like Thunderstrike, Great Grandma Thunderstrike, Strange Visitor, Superboy X (or whatever it was), Slingers, Young Avengers and so many more.

It’s time to FOOM it up!! Yup! We’re talking about that ol’ space dragon monster, Fin Fang Foom! Each of the boys does their pitch of a Foom story to be told to take the Foom where the Foom has never gone before! All that AND we talk the ridiculousness of Superhero costumes. Who puts their initial on their chest AND their belt buckle? And is EVERYTHING unstable molecules? Plus a bevy of news from a Boys spinoff, Supergirl wrapping up, Hawkman casting in the Black Adam movie that no one knew was coming out or not, some Watchmen anger, and Bry intruduces ‘Drake-Watch’.

244: Superman, Your Kid’s a Nerd!


It’s that time of year again! No not to get your fishin’ license and go looking for Aquaman! It’s Father’s Day this weekend! So we look at superhero dads who you may not have known had gone out & made a baby…. or two… or three… or 45 in the case of Wolverine. Is deadbeat dad his new mutation?!? We talk about that and kids from Superman, Batman, Colossus (Are you my papa, tovarisch?) and many more. We debate whether Tony Stark had a vasectomy at 25 or developed an extremis condom. Either is possible. And yes, we actually discuss it. We’re nerds. We also have a warm up bit with a game of 20 questions, and lots of news including Spiderman at the BLM protests, the police bizarrely using the Punisher logo, the new DC distribution deal and the sad passing of a comics legend, Denny O’ Neil.

239: I’m Weisz to You

So, this episode gets a little weird, for some reason! We’ve got some really interesting news about the current state of the comic book industry, and Merk has a very fun quiz, but then, in our main segment, which is supposed to be all about the current changes that are being, by necessity, forced on the MCU, the audio has been completely corrupted and
