Issue 76: Identity Crisis Part 2 – The Murderer Was… A Plot Hole!

My feelings on Identity Crisis are still so torn
“What if the Elongated Man stretched his way into grittiness?

We finish DC’s mega-event that changed everything, Identity Crisis! Is the ending satisfying? Does it make sense? And why does everyone hate Captain Boomerang?

Check out our last episode, Identity Crisis Part 1, first if you haven’t!

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!

Issue 75: Identity Crisis Part 1 – Whoops, Cynicism Wins After All

Identity Crisis is polarizing for a reason
“Is his true identity Elongated Man, Plastic Man, or Mr. Fantastic?”

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.
