Pick of the Week Podcast

Pick of the Week #721 – Doctor Doom #6

Show Notes

It’s a great week for first issues, and in the face of strong, high end contenders, the Pick of the Week (which is not wrong), is a bit of a left turn. Do we have a strong pro-Kang bias? Absolutely. All that’s important is 1) Doom and Kang on a train and 2) Shaner ascendent. Put that in the bank.

  1. I have to correct Conor on what happened with Wally since his timeline is off and he is assigning blame incorrectly. The show was a response to the comics since Wallace as he is called now was announced in January of 2014 with the reintroduction of Wally West. His first appearance was in the Flash Annual in June of that year and the show’s first season didn’t air until October of 2014. The show was casting after that announcement since Barry just appeared in a backdoor pilot on Arrow. The Flash wasn’t even in pre-production and casting when that announcement happened. The show is not responsible for that version of Wally from the New 52 where it was an original idea from the comics. The actor playing Wally also had other shows and movies he was doing like appearing in Love, Simon.

    • The Flash TV series was being developed in 2013. They obviously knew where they were going with the West family because, as CCO of DC Entertainment, Geoff Johns was able to introduce the corresponding comic book version in 2014.

    • I will add that Jesse L. Martin is great as Joe West, but unfortunately the show followed the New 52 origin. Wally having a drug addict mother and neglectful father which was Joe was frankly terrible.
