Issue 84: The Rise Of The MODERN Captain Marvel - Still Carol Danvers!
We’re ALMOST done talking about Captain Marvel! This is the last Carol Danvers episode! We made it! We cover her arc during Civil War and AvX! Carol Danvers separates kids from their moms over politics and then makes out with Captain Marvel as part of her initiation to take up the mantle!
On this episode, we finish up Carol’s saga. We only have ONE more Marvel-ous episode left, we promise! Sly dumps a bunch of lore. Darryl gets a warboard. Phil still kinda likes Civil War. Ryan is still talking about Civil War tie ins.
Back Issues 2 - Civil War: Were We Wrong To Like This In Our First Episode?
Yesterday was Christmas, but now it’s time to look towards the future. I mean, let’s live in the past! As part of our annual Back Issues tradition, we make Phil and Darryl read a book we covered in our FIRST EPISODE EVER. Marvel’s Civil War! By our nothing-but-problematic-fave Mark Millar! We actually liked it a lot two years ago, but does it hold up to our comic newbie hosts?
We also pick our favorites and least favorite books we covered in 2018 and hoo boy, for four boys with no honor, we sure have a lot of honorable mentions.
In this episode, Sly wants to regulate the Speed Boys of the world, Phil prefers the Millar Universe to the Marvel one, Ryan is proud of Phil for the first time in his life, and Darryl is the only one saddened by the mindless slaughter of Z-list villains.
