Superman has gone rogue! Or… not-Superman has gone rogue and it’s up to the not-Justice League to stop him! Darryl, Phil, and Sly take a trip through the first eight issues of Mark Waid’s Irredeemable, and emerge out the other end… feeling bad for a genocidal killer? Best to listen to the podcast and not take that statement out of context!
Darryl can’t let go of his “-Man” suffix, Phil is the only person that knows the difference between Scylla and Charybdis, and Sly could do without all the sexual deviancy (that isn’t cucking.)
It’s the end of the year, which means we’ve compiled our favorites and least favorites of 2019! It was a pretty packed year, so things might shake out differently than you’d expect! Not only that, but Phil and Darryl dive into Superman: Grounded, and walk away from that long walk feeling pretty good.
Ho ho ho-ly cow! It’s been another year which means it’s time for another Christmas-themed podcast! This time the Divisive Issues crew will be diving into the X-Men animated series as well as X-Men Evolution. Gather ’round the fire and let us regale you with tales of scorpions, alien girls, and flying angels…
Ryan becomes the defender of the downtrodden sewer folk, Darryl keeps thinking the leader of the Morlocks is a greek nymph, Sly evolves his opinion on x-mas specials, and Phil believes in angels.
This is it! Ichigo must race to the soul palace to save the Soul King! Or… does he have to? Does it matter? Does any of this matter? The DI crew is losing their minds trying to process what is happening at the very end of Bleach, bringing us to perhaps the most daunting question of all: Would we recommend Bleach?
Darryl pronounces omniscience as “am-nish-sense” like a paulo stulti, Phil’s favorite fight ends on a whimper, Sly has had his fill of “BAN-KAI!” hype moments, and Ryan now knows the meaning of TRUE despair.
We’re back at it! Our saga through Bleach is nearing its close as we discuss the final two arcs left in the series. The first 30 minutes are spent discussing the “filler” arc, and then it’s on to the craziest, dumbest, and worst-drawn arc yet!
Darryl calls Tatsuki “Taki” like a Soulcalibur scrub, Phil is a big supporter of the Quincy monarchy, Sly has a bone to pick with the german alphabet, and Ryan is actually sick this podcast—whether from germs or Bleach, we can’t tell.
Also, sorry about Phil’s audio blips an hour in—nothing we can do about that.
On this episode, we’re diving into the torrid history of The Clone Saga, and we’re bringing our non-fans Darryl and Phil kicking and screaming into Ben Reilly’s tragic backstory. We cover his lab-grown birth, the discovery of his own unique identity, and his struggle with yet another clone, KAINE. Only after we record do we realize all the crime bible jokes we could’ve made.
We’re currently cloning Ryan so he doesn’t get a chance to participate, but Sly tries his best to lay out the Clone Saga for us while Darryl feels Ben’s identity crisis and Phil really gets into shouting Kaine’s lines.
Let the battle for Fake Karakura Town begin! You guys are excited for this, right? Right?! Well, even if that doesn’t sate you appetite for action, we have Ichigo vs. UIquiorra, and Ichigo vs. Aizen coming up! We’ve been waiting for those fights for so long that they’re bound to be really good and definitely not super long and boring! Prepare for our longest episode yet!
Darryl pronounces “keikaku” as “cake-cock-coo” like a baka gaijin, Phil slips in two different Cell references, Sly defends the parts Darryl hates the most, and Ryan is checked out, having reached his “it’s dumb” quota for Bleach
The consensus is in: Bleach is not “terrible!” The gang begins their descent into Bleach’s canonical hell (well, purgatory), Hueco Mundo! Another lady is need of saving, the Espada are in need of a beating, and Kubo’s backgrounds are in need of some buildings! We’re only halfway through, so hang in there!
Darryl pronounces “Re-su-rrec-ción” as “Rez-or-reck-zion” like an estupido extranjero, Phil wants to control our sovereignty, Sly thinks this arc is the best yet, and Ryan has checked out. Podcaster’s note: Nakama means friend.
Darryl pronounces “SHI-KAI” as “SHIK-KAI” like a baka gaijin, Ryan fantasizes about Byakuya and Ichigo kissing, Phil enjoys teaming up with his rival, and Sly can only understand media through the lens of Yu-Gi-Oh.
