Issue 86: Shazam! DC's Captain Marvel Gets A Reboot!
Note: An Earlier version of this episode with a missing ending was uploaded previously. This is the fixed one!
On this episode, we revisit Captain Marvel, but only just barely since he isn’t called that anymore! Just in time for Shazam! We cover the story that we’re pretty sure the movie’s based on, his retold origins from the DC reboot.
Phil’s had enough of troubled kids with a heart of gold, Darryl knows who the REAL Santa is, Ryan has more knowledge about tigers in business suits than one might think, and Sly’s argues that Superman’s outlook is for babies and Black Adam’s is for big boys.
Our Captain Marvel bonanza continues! Legacy’s all grown up now and he’s the new Captain! After his dad came to Earth and died, he came to Earth himself. But what happened next? Did he do his dad’s legacy proud? Spoilers, not exactly… Legacyvember continues HERE!
On this episode, we talk about the first arc of Peter David’s second run on the fifth volume of Captain Marvel. You know, the one that stars the fourth Marv? Or was it fifth? Maybe third? I can’t keep track anymore. Phil finally learns to appreciate quips. Darryl really wants God to just randomly mess everyone up. Ryan finds out how Darryl really feels about him. And Sly has the father of all Freudian Slips.
After doing our regularly scheduled Holiday and New Year’s Episodes, we’ll be back in January to pick up where we left off with Captain Marvel! Is it FINALLY time to learn more about Carol Danvers? If they’re making a movie, she must be the most accessible and streamlined version of Captain Marvel? Well… tune in next year to find out!
On this episode, we cover some more people trying to take live up to Captain Marvel! Carol Danvers, Monica Rambeau, and Gennis-Vell! Sly defends sexism and Spider-Man. Ryan defends 90s writers. Phil defends X-Treme characters. Darryl offends us all.
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.
