236: Wonder Man is Your Responsibility

This week, we figure out who is the first among first among equals, with a very scientific, Tony Robbins-endorsed, leader-off! Cyclops, Nightwing, Captain America, Storm, Superman, Mister Fantastic, Black Panther: which one would you follow into battle? The answer may shock you!

Plus, we’ve absolutely lost our minds, and the news shows it.

229: A Batman who Washes His Ass

Holy smokes, did you know there’s a new Batman movie in the works right now, helmed by Matt Reeves and starring Robert Pattinson? So I guess there won’t be anyone else playing Batman after this, he’s the last one, nobody else will ever play Batman.

Despite this, we do our best to recast Batman and his allies and enemies, just in case they do ever decide to make another Batman movie. Y’know, just in case!

Plus: Dan DiDio’s ousting from DC, all the hot ToyFair news, the cast reveal for Kevin Smith’s Masters of the Universe: Revelation, and Kyle tells us about The Fourth Planet, a comic series from someone we aren’t attempting to fource a bitter rivalry with.

226: I Shall Become a Circus

Cue up Entrance of the Gladiators, because we’re off to the circus this week! Th…that’s what the circus song is called. Kind of a badass name for what is essentially Boy, Clowns are Goofy: The Song. Anyway, yeah, circus! From the Flying Graysons to the Circus of Crime (to Golden Age superhero costumes being inspired by circus strongmen, which we don’t really talk about, whoops), comics and circuses have a long, shared history. A history that we mock.

Plus: DMZ, Bloodshot, and more in the News! A brand new card-based Warmup that you’ll love! And many, many instances of Bry saying “daddy.”

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.

210: Flowers for Dick

Ruination! This week, we set out to ruin some of our favourite characters. Kinda like all those times that we’ve tried to fix characters that haven’t gotten their fair shake, but the opposite. Moon Knight, Thor, and Nightwing are so screwed after this (assuming that Marvel ,and DC listen to this podcast [they won’t]).

We’ve got that, plus: more CW Crisis news (this thing needs more cameos, I say), and some more new Amalgam characters! Let’s get ruined!

169 : She’s got her $#!% Together and he’s got his $#!% in a Box at his Aunt’s!

Gotta keep the status quo! Such is the mantra of many comics fans. But can it work to switch it up? Has it worked to do a big character/story shift? That’s what we talk about this week. From Nightwing Batman, to Flash Thompson Venom, to Captain Marvel, what’s worked? And which is your Spidey Quo? – lonely, ridiculous shlub, or married and a jerk? We weigh in. That plus so much more…like, birds of prey dvd collections, Bat fly jeans, Galactus Gary Busey, hood farts, someone who might have been chappy, and the almost title of this episode, ‘I’m a mob princess over here, heeeyyyyyy!’ Join us, won’t you? Please. Save us. Call for help.
