Our Captain Marvel bonanza continues! Legacy’s all grown up now and he’s the new Captain! After his dad came to Earth and died, he came to Earth himself. But what happened next? Did he do his dad’s legacy proud? Spoilers, not exactly… Legacyvember continues HERE!
On this episode, we talk about the first arc of Peter David’s second run on the fifth volume of Captain Marvel. You know, the one that stars the fourth Marv? Or was it fifth? Maybe third? I can’t keep track anymore. Phil finally learns to appreciate quips. Darryl really wants God to just randomly mess everyone up. Ryan finds out how Darryl really feels about him. And Sly has the father of all Freudian Slips.
After doing our regularly scheduled Holiday and New Year’s Episodes, we’ll be back in January to pick up where we left off with Captain Marvel! Is it FINALLY time to learn more about Carol Danvers? If they’re making a movie, she must be the most accessible and streamlined version of Captain Marvel? Well… tune in next year to find out!
We watched a Dinesh D’Souza “film” called Death Of A Nation. Whatever you do, don’t watch this god damn movie and DEFINITELY don’t listen to a word this guy says.
On this episode, we celebrate a very successful midterm election by playing chicken with death and watching Death Of A Nation, the Grown Ups 2 of political documentaries. This movie suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks. Darryl took copious notes documenting all the arguments Dinesh forgets to follow up on. Ryan wants to arrest filmmakers who don’t agree with him. Phil’s basically a scientist arguing flat earthers. And Sly is rushing towards death at 7 times speed.
On this episode, we cover some more people trying to take live up to Captain Marvel! Carol Danvers, Monica Rambeau, and Gennis-Vell! Sly defends sexism and Spider-Man. Ryan defends 90s writers. Phil defends X-Treme characters. Darryl offends us all.
Election Day was yesterday, but we recorded this on Sunday, so I really hope you people voted. I’m writing this on election day morning, from my dark room that only has 538 refreshing every 4 minutes and an IV to keep me hydrated from all the tears and nervous sweating. Am I rambling? No, you are. This is what QAnon sounds like, right? Just stupid rambling?
On this episode, we talk about some conspiracy theories. Just what the heck is QAnon and why do so many people think he has the inside scoop on which Democrats are about to go to jail? And is George Soros really the mastermind that the right pretends he is? Darryl just tries to have a little fun. Ryan debates with an attempted murderer. Phil has really just had enough of… everything. And Sly feels VERY strongly about Home Depot’s donations.
We’re going to spend the next month tackling one of the most convoluted and messy names in comics! Not Shazam, not Marvelman, but the one (of seven), the ONLY (of seven), CAPTAIN MARVEL! This episode focuses on the Kree warrior, Captain Mar-Vell! What a very different and original name! From his first appearance, through the little boy big boy revamp, all the way to the obviously named Death Of Captain Marvel!
On this episode, Sly attempts to summarize the history of the name Captain Marvel, both in universe and in lawsuits. Phil gets real personal when it comes to his own INEVITABLE death. Darryl strikes some bizarre and wide eyed poses. And Ryan’s got a bit of a cold, so he’s bringing his nasaliest A-game for you.
Special episode time! Ryan got married so he recorded an interview episode a few weeks ago! This one’s with Ivan! We talk about a bunch of stuff, so just listen to it already! It’s a really interesting talk about some less mainstream leftist ideas!
The world’s on fire again, so we needed a break. What do you want from us? We’re only human! We take a break from the news and/or history and talk about our family again. You know, those people that you can’t stand that just share memes all day about how Irish people were slaves too and Obama’s a Soros puppet who should be in jail? Yeah, those heroes.
In this episode, Ryan gives his strategy to help the police get the public to trust them again. Phil becomes the world’s ultimate inventor. Darryl fears for his life. And Sly sells oil, but great oil that’s very helpful from only the finest snakes.
Also it’s Ryan’s birthday the day this comes out, tell him happy birthday on twitter. @stoopkidliveson
In this episode, Ryan struggles to defend why cynicism can be good when it’s in a story he kinda likes. Sly thinks all superheroes look the same. Darryl discovers the most relatable villain. And Phil just can’t help but nitpick plot holes just because they don’t make any sense and hurt the narrative. What a stickler!
We’re talking elections! The electoral college! Super delegates! Some of the wackier things that have happened in some historical elections and campaigns!
It’s not a current events episode! This one’s a lot of fun! Ryan graduates from the electoral college. Darryl puts the SUPER in super delegate. Phil wins the popular vote, but loses the election. And I knew Sly’s segment. I worked with Sly’s segment. And this episode is NO Sly’s segment (he does have one, actually).
We talk about a book we’ve been awkwardly avoiding for years, DC’s 2004 event: Identity Crisis. This is one of the biggest DC stories we’ve covered and it’s the one that proved just how cynical Alan Moore’s influence was. So we should hate it, right? Well…
On this episode, we dip into the first half of Identity Crisis. We’ll finish it next time, don’t worry! Ryan’s a giant hypocrite who likes this book (but WITH ASTERISKS, HE SWEARS). Darryl finally found a superhero story that he doesn’t think is dumb (most of the time). Phil just loves big anime fights. Sly packs this episode with more lore than ever.
