Issue 91: Countdown To Infinite Crisis – Isn’t Blue Beetle The Greatest?

All for the cost of a candy bar!

It’s finally here. Hold on to your butts, we’re gearing up to talk about DC’s big event. Not Crisis On Infinite Earths, the very different INFINITE CRISIS!

Read Along: Countdown To Infinite Crisis, The OMAC Project, and Superman: Sacrifice

On this episode, Phil is smitten with an AI (or just its text), Darryl is smitten with Wonder Woman, Sly does a heel turn and defends the structure of a crossover event, and Ryan is beaming with pride as Blue Beetle gets the love he deserves. This is a pretty big episode, not just because robots are taking over the DC world, but we also announce SIX future episodes!

Issue 90: Death’s Head 2 – He’s Back And He’s BEAUTIFUL

Death's Head 2 kinda rules, doesn't he?
The X-Treme Prejudice is X-Cruciating in this X-Cellent X-Hibition!

The gang’s back to talk about Darryl’s mentor, Death’s Head II. The time traveling, multiple personality, cybernetic assassin. Or something like that, I don’t know. It’s dumber than ever. But also… great? If you haven’t heard part one, it’ll either help or make it worse.

We cover: Issues 1-4 of Death’s Head II’s ongoing series

Darryl continues to stan for the dumbest character in existence, Ryan stans for “little font” Jubilee, Sly can’t garner one iota of concern for Tuck, and Phil’s just here for the T&A. If you thought everyone was mean to Death’s Head (and Darryl) before, you ain’t heard nothin’ yet bub!

Issue 89: How Many Ways Can A Robin Die? A Bunch!

Whoops, Robin's dead again.
Alfred, we gotta go get a new Robin again! Yeah, I know, it happened again.

On this episode, the gang watches Batman grow up and develop from only hallucinating Robin dying, to causing it, then to only witnessing it. Again and again and again. We cover a bunch of Robin’s fake out deaths from the 60s and 70s! Not to be confused with the time he actually died in the 80s, which we covered exactly a year ago!

Ryan is bamboozled by how AIR TIGHT the plots of these stories are, Darryl thinks Batman shouldn’t be wasting his time advancing science, Sly defends every comic in this episode, and Phil wishes Robin was actually dead.

Issue 88: Flex Mentallo – Man Of Postmodern Muscle Mystery

This is your brain on black mentallium

On this episode, the gang gets weird. We cover the standalone Doom Patrol spin-off book on everyone’s favorite HERO. OF. THE BEACH. Flex Mentallo! Never heard of him? Don’t worry, maybe it’s just because superheroes had to turn fictional to save our universe? Buckle up for a postmodern journey and remember, the fish gets changed more than the water!

Read Along: Flex Mentallo: Man Of Muscle Mystery By Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely

Darryl wants to know why this is all happening, Phil wants to know how this is all happening, Sly has given up, and Ryan’s as happy as a kid in a candy store. As our hero Grant Morrison says, “Those comics, they really #&@! you up something.

Issue 87: Kaijumax – Biting Satire Or Something Much Less?

Ryan still thinks Kaijumax is good, damn you
Is it a powerful metaphor or is it just racist?

On this episode, the gang takes a patreon request and covers one of their first indie books, Kaijumax by Zander Cannon and published by Oni Press – a gruesome tale of giant monsters in a maximum security prison. Asking the tough questions, like what if we treated giant monsters as badly as we currently treat actual human beings? And what if it was cute to look at?

Read Along: Kaijumax Volume One

Darryl remains in shock at the events in this book, Sly has NO SYMPATHY for one-note debtors, and Ryan really hates the prison system (both real and imaginary) and Phil just wants to watch Pacific Rim again.

Issue 86: Shazam! DC’s Captain Marvel Gets A Reboot!

I guess this is my name now!

Note: An Earlier version of this episode with a missing ending was uploaded previously. This is the fixed one!

On this episode, we revisit Captain Marvel, but only just barely since he isn’t called that anymore! Just in time for Shazam! We cover the story that we’re pretty sure the movie’s based on, his retold origins from the DC reboot.

Read Along: Shazam By Geoff Johns and Gary Frank

Phil’s had enough of troubled kids with a heart of gold, Darryl knows who the REAL Santa is, Ryan has more knowledge about tigers in business suits than one might think, and Sly’s argues that Superman’s outlook is for babies and Black Adam’s is for big boys.

Annual 3 Part 2: Ultimates 2 Vol 2 – More Divisive Than Ever

Ultimates sure is something
Sorry, chum. You’re nuts. And you’re going down

Our Annual extravaganza must once more come to a close, as we finish the second half of the Mark Millar epic, Ultimates 2. Does it fly off the rails as hard as Ultimates 1, which we covered last year? Listen to find out! And make sure you listen to part one first!

Read along: Ultimates 2

On this episode, we get INTO it. The four hosts choose some interesting lines in the sand on if the Avengers movie improved on Millar’s work or, god forbid, took away from it? Ryan think anything less than 10 issues is too subtle and rushed. Sly has some shocking reveals on his opinions of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Phil discusses the nuances of mental health awareness, through the lens of a teenaged edgelord. And Darryl might be the only one left with any sense on what constitutes a good book anymore.

Annual 3 Part 1: Ultimates 2 Vol 1 – Not to be Confused with Ultimates 1 Vol 2

In this episode, the gang continues what they started and read Mark Millar’s Ultimates 2. The Millarfication of the Marvel Universe continues! This is the one that everyone seems to love, but will the gang agree with the general consensus? It’s a Mark Millar book so probably not. But tune in anyway to find out!

This is actually our second take at this episode because we actually did lose our original audio despite our claims to the contrary in the emergency MCU episode. So in this episode, gasp as Ryan’s lie is revealed, laugh as Sly gets his kneecaps broken, cry as Phil gives his heartfelt apologies, and snore as Darryl recalls the points he made during our original take.

Special Episode: Discussing The Marvel Cinematic Universe

On this very special episode, technical difficulties pushed our Annual Extravaganza back two weeks and Ryan, Sly, and Darryl get together to talk about the MCU. What makes it a success, what we’re worried about for the future, how excited we are for Captain Marvel and much more!

Issue 85: The Origin of the NEW Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan

We finally finish talking about Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel, and Marvel Comics in general as we wrap up this long trek through comic history with Kamala Khan as Ms. Marvel. And we end it on a high note.

In this episode, we all praise G. Willow Wilson and her success at an editorially mandated Marvel character, Kamala Khan. Ryan is the loremaster this time around because Sly is just too hyped about the next Edgelord August. Phil was just a big smily face emoticon while reading this and Darryl has finally gotten over his ex, Carol Danvers.
