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.)
We’re all extremely ill with Olympics fever this week, and the only cure for Olympic fever? Our own Olympics, with Jughead, and Bumblebee, and Randy Quaid! Listen in as we argue over which of our clearly-not-thought-through champions deserves the gold in some of the worst events to not be in the “official” games (including some that used to be events, but got the boot)!
Plus, we’ve got a warmup of all-butler Olympics (all-butlers!), and all the news you can handle!
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. We even make up our own ones…. which leads to the uncomfortable title of the episode…. Wonder Man, we’re sorry. All that and a read this now! Maestro! And a quiz! And learn about Kyle’s offshoot character!
Mother’s Day was, uh, almost two weeks ago… and to, um, celebrate… we’re talking about the worst-ever kids in comics! We compare the worst of the Robins!

And good god, so much more. Let’s get weird!!

I tried to put that Eminem song about Venom in this one, but it just…it wasn’t in the cards, y’know? Also how silly is it that there’s a song about Venom that Eminem did? Were the guys from 21 Pilots busy? Ha, good one, episode introducer.
Anyway! This week, in celebration of Venom, we’re talking about what the sequel’s going to look like. And did you know that Sony has the rights to around 900 Spidey-related characters? We pitch movies featuring some of those folks, as well!
All that plus news, brews, and Bebop and Rocksteady just being very strong children.
