310: The Goal was Always to Eat the Sandwich

Hey, kids! You like them Squid Games, right? Battle Royale-type stuff? Well then, have we got an episode for you. Watch as our contestants battle over half a sandwich, karaoke, explaining the plot of Tenet, and more!

Plus, we’ve got a CharacterBREW, and news about Boba Fett, Ben Reilly, and…uh…Marvel enacting distribution deadline changes. Weird, wild stuff!

Just let the poor boy eat the sandwich, guys.

304: Shuma-Gorath Does Laundry on Mondays

This week, we’re tumbling out of bed and stumbling to the kitchen, pouring ourselves a cup of ambition, and yawning, stretching, and talking about super heroes with day jobs. From the ones with crappy jobs, like Hal Jordan selling toys door to door and Captain America being an artist for Marvel Comics pre-creators’ rights, to the ones we wish characters had, like Batman’s Discovery Channel hit, Keeping up with the Waynes, or Doctor Strange turning the Sanctum Sanctorum into a rooming house.

It even takes over our Warm Up, where we try to give jobs to a bunch of characters who don’t really have prescribed ones (spoiler: a lot of them just end up as bouncers at a strip club). And there’s news! You knew that! Get back to work!

296: The Summers Family Deadbeat Dad Reunion

Our Podcast Dad didn’t send the cheque on time, so this Father’s Day episode is a week late AND we’re talking about the deadbeat dads of comics! Take that! Superhero books have more than their fair share of bad father figures, but what makes one a deadbeat instead of a garden-variety neglectful or abusive A-hole? Which deadbeat super-dad is the deadbeatiest of all? And how many of these disappointments are from the Summers family? (Believe it or not, some aren’t!)

But that’s not all! We’ve got news: a Warren Ellis announcement finally set off a real response to allegations from SoManyOfUs.com; Miles Morales gets a new costume; and Ben Reilly returns to the role of Spider-Man. And then Merk guides Kyle & Bry through the many surprising covers of the Batman 1966 theme song – some you may not believe!

259: I’m a Big First Moira Fan

Let’s smash some super heroes into sitcom archetypes! Doctor Doom as Victor (Beeektor), Reed’s wacky cousin from Latveria, Marvel Knight Court, Beast and Wonder Man as two swingin’ single dudes in da big city, and many, many more.

Also: news! Hot news. More Snyder, Nick Fury TV stuff, and a Warmup where Kyle just talks about a completely different podcast!

(Sorry, we never do an X-Men/Community mashup. We’ve probably already done that, knowing Kyle and Bry. But sheeeesh, Jim Rash in a hoverchair.)
