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!

216: Hawkman’s Pal Doug

Y’know those pals who are, like… un-super pals? This week we’re talking about the friends, the sidekicks, the hangers-on of the superhero stars! Whether they’re teen sidekicks for the kids to relate to, or middle-aged schlubs for the writer of the comic to relate to, they’ve been loitering around the panels for decades! So in their honour, let’s: Find some new powerless pals for famous superheroes! Pitch a new “League of Losers” team (are you listening, Mr. Bendis?)! Have a friggin’ RICK JONES QUIZ! Snap into action!!

Plus, news! The Snyder Cut keeps threatening to be released! An X-Man is a Canadian Member of Parliament! “Joker” has made a bunch of money! Ben Mendelsohn makes us bleep ourselves! And maybe even more!?

168: Stop Trying to Make Sage Happen

This week we’re talking about “pet characters”! Whether it’s the writer’s own creation or just one they’re a fan of, some writers and artists keep going back to the same characters: Peter David loves Marlo Chandler, Brian Michael Bendis loves Luke Cage, Todd McFarlane loves capes, and Chris Claremont just can’t quit you, Sage!

Also: we touch on the sad, sudden passing of legendary Batman artist Norm Breyfogle, try to keep up with comic movie release date musical chairs, and play a fun new game with our trusty deck of 1991 Marvel trading cards!
