One-Shot: Why The Hell Is Captain America A Nazi?

nazi

On this episode, the gang is absent, so Ryan interviews some people about Captain America becoming a Nazi! This isn’t an episode on the story Secret Empire, but about the concept of Captain America himself, what he means to people, and how him becoming an agent of Hydra affects fans in different ways.

Special thanks to Sly, David, Henry, and Matt for talking to me!

Issue 50 – Midnighter: Gay Nemesis Batman

In this episode, Divisive Issues struggles to balance it’s edgelord tendencies and a normal perspective on the world.

Midnighter Vol 1: Out by Steve Orlando and ACO

In a truly divisive episode, the gang discusses the first volume of the New 52 Midnighter book. Midnighter is basically gay Batman with the edginess of Nemesis. Darryl has supported both of these ideas but is this truly what he wanted? Phil is sick of Sly bashing his bourgeois friends while Ryan is sick of Phil’s kink-shaming. And finally, Sly’s imprint corner makes a glorious comeback.

Issue 49: Bush, Putin & Pope Benedict vs Hitler

Pope Benedict

On this episode, the gang turns to a simpler time in geopolitical history, when Hitler’s moonbase attacked the world and only the 5 greatest Mahjong players could stop him, the leaders of the free world! Players like George Bush Sr., Pope Benedict, and Vladimir Putin!

The Legend Of Koizumi by Owada Hideki

In this episode, we reminisce about the good ol’ days of politics, when the fate of the world was constantly determined by a tile game. Sly marvels at Putin’s majesty for the umpteenth time. Ryan is the true Papa Bush, who’s pre-emptive strike abilities are over 9000. Darryl is really struggling to learn the rules of Mahjong and it’s kind of like rummy? And in a Divisive Issues first, Phil has some real life ties to one of the characters in this book!

Issue 48: Before Rorschach: The Question & Mr. A

question

In this episode, the gang poses a lot of questions. Who watches the Watchmen? What questions does the Question question? Why is Mr. A such an A-hole?

We discuss the two characters who were the inspiration for Rorschach in Watchmen. We discuss their origins, their politics, and their unique creator, Steve Ditko. Sly can’t help but defend a fellow asshole while Ryan gets slowly won over by Phil’s wish fulfillment character. Phil is not impressed by superheroes with a play-doh face and while Darryl is not impressed by Ryan’s idea of a joke.

In this episode, we read the most talked about book from DC’s new Hanna-Barbera universe, The Flintstones!

Issue 46 – Killing X-Men Part 2: Death Of Cyclops

cyclops

After two weeks of arguing, the gang ends with a surprisingly amicable discussion on the Death of X. Death of X being either the death of Cyclops or the death of the X-Men as a franchise however you wanna look at it. But don’t worry, we’ve got Inhumans now! They’re way cooler.

Ryan can’t help but be inspired by Obama-esque speeches, even when they’re delivered by people with stupid Xes on their faces. Sly goes off about the inaccuracies present in the Official Marvel Handbook and it’s explanation of the punch dimension. Phil identifies a lot with Cyclops’ desire to find someone to kill him while Darryl critiques the third graders working on Marvel’s art staff.

Issue 45 – Killing X-Men Part 1: Death Of Wolverine

wolverine

On this episode, the gang’s the best at what they do, and what they do isn’t keeping Wolverine alive.

Death Of Wolverine by Charles Soule and Steve McNiven – tinyurl.com/DeathWolverine

In this episode, we watch the ol’ Canuck die in part 1 of our 2 part series: killing X-Men. It turns out Marvel would rather see the X-Men die before letting Fox get the rights to them. Ryan gets an adamantium injection into his “bone.” Sly grabs some forks and run around as “definitely-his-favorite” X-Man. Phil knows a lot about Japanese culture. Darryl has Nemesis flashbacks, but that’s nothing new. Come back next time and we’ll kill Cyclops!

Special Edition 6 – Suicide Squad (feat. the Joe Kerr)

suicide squad

Suicide Squad won an Oscar and was one of the top grossing films of 2016. That’s all well and good but what do five nerds think about it?

Suicide Squad – www.imdb.com/title/tt1386697/

In this episode, the gang brings back original co-host Joe to discuss one of the most contentious topics yet: is Suicide Squad is the most mediocre movie ever made or the worst movie ever made? Ryan really wants to go to sleep but tyrannical Sly won’t let anyone else speak until he finishes his point. It also turns out that Phil really loves Jughead’s hat when it is on fire. Darryl just wishes Will Smith could be with his kids as Joe realizes he has been betrayed by his ally in arms.

Note: when we say Magnificent Seven, we mean Dirty Dozen. As usual, Ryan doesn’t know anything about movies.

Issue 44 – Keijo!!!!!!!! Boobs & Butts Battling it Out

Keijo

On this episode, the gang finally finds a sport they can get into. Spoilers, it’s fighting but with butts.

Keijo!!!!!!!! – Ass Island – tinyurl.com/KeijoAssIsland

In this episode, we delve back into the world of manga, but this time instead of it being horror themed, it’s nudity! Darryl is our senpai. Phil really loves anime (surprise)! Ryan doesn’t know how respectful he should be towards these characters and can’t decide which names to use. Sly doesn’t want you to believe in his ass, he wants you to believe in the ass that believes in you!
