Issue 82: A Very Divisive Christmas With Enough Santa To Go Around
Happy holidays and Merry Christmas! Santa galore here at DI HQ! We celebrated by showcasing some of our favorite Christmas comics from Marvel and DC. Some of our meaning some hosts, the actual opinions seem to vary wildly. We hope you and your family get along better than we do.
On this episode, we cover a myriad of issues. Like the time Dr. Doom was Santa! And the time The Punisher was Santa! Or the time Batman was Santa! Or when a homeless guy was Santa (and hung out with Starman). Also: Superman prevents a holiday suicide and Thanos visits dolphins with baby dolly. Sly has another Freudian slip. Darryl learns the true meaning of bravery. Ryan tries to add in some Christmas spirit. And Phil gets yelled at. A lot.
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.
Issue 66 - Thanos: God Of Death Or Pilot Of Helicopters?
Special episode alert! Who’s ready for an editorially mandated CROSSOVER? It’s the EVENT of the SUMMER! Divisive Issues will NEVER be the SAME AGAIN! We’re joined by Henry from Midtown Comics to talk about the inconsistent history of Thanos, the star of the mega-blockbuster, Avengers: Infinity War!
Hoo boy, this was a wild ride. We give a quick synopsis of the history of Thanos leading up to Infinity Gauntlet, the book that inspired Avengers: Infinity War. How did Thanos get all the Infinity gems? Is he actually worthy of this decade long hype? And just how many skateboarding heroes does Marvel have? Henry’s a wonderful guest, despite his love of Sexy Fauxbo… I mean Lobo. Ryan traveled through time to 1979 to write the first issue we covered. Sly just can’t get behind the Marvel movies changing his precious Infinity GEMS into Infinity STONES. Darryl finally finds his soul (gem) mate in Thanos, his powerful purple prince.
