    April 3, 2020 12:16 am This is so interesting and perfectly exemplifies why I love listening to your show! Personally, I *hated* this adaptation, but I loved listening to you guys talk about it and it helped me see a different perspective. I think the main reason I didn't like it was that I read the comic right before watching the movie. I'm usually fine with story changes but this movie made a lot of them and they were so severe that it felt like they used the book as a starting point rather than a reference point. All of the nuanced and subtle moments of the comic felt very heavy-handed and obvious in the movie and it felt like everyone's character was changed to more easily fit a side. In the comic, Superman didn't kill Stalin and only took power when the people asked, whereas the movie had him kill Stalin and take power by force. In the comic, Lex regularly ignored Lois and closed the Daily Planet to spite her, but in the movie he regrets missing their wedding anniversary and regularly tries to win her over. There's more, but these were just some examples of ways in which I felt the movie changed character motivations for the worse. Like I said though, I really enjoyed hearing your opinions on the movie and I'm glad you liked it! Also, it looks like that Apokolips War thing is true. Aside from the bit that Conor mentioned, Comicbook.com is also reporting that it will be the last movie in the current shared universe.
    March 5, 2020 2:49 pm I did say it doesn’t make the issue better haha. Yeah, Superman definitely should hav recognized Tim.
    March 4, 2020 10:05 pm Two things in regards to Action Comics. First, Tim was Robin. Tynion's run retconned Tim's origin back to the pre-Flashpoint one where he discovered who Batman was and became Robin before becoming Red Robin. Second, this isn't the Superman from pre-52 anymore. In 2017 DC did an event called Superman Reborn where pre-52 Superman and New 52 Superman merged together. So this Superman is a weird mix of new 52 and old 52 memories and stories. None of this really makes the issue any better, but I just wanted to give some clarification.
    November 27, 2019 2:11 pm Hey guys, first off this episode was great! Also, on the Kitty Pryde thing. I think the reason she's acting out so much is that she's upset about the Krakoa thing. She's basically been locked out of heaven so that would naturally lead to some frustration.
    October 25, 2019 12:54 am I noticed that Josh mentioned having seen Gurihiru's art before but never followed up on where? Was it Gwenpool? I was surprised by how much I liked that series (Since I'm not a Deadpool or Gwen Stacy fan) but it quickly became my favorite series of the past decade (maybe ever). I always thought you guys would like it but I also assumed the title turned you away so it would be really cool to hear that Josh read it at some point!
    August 29, 2019 10:52 am Hey guys, minor note: The upcoming Man of Tomorrow movie isn't an adaptation of anything, it's going to be an original story (Source from comicbook.com: https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/07/20/superman-man-of-tomorrow-movie/). Also, I think you guys were thinking of the storyline simply titled "For Tomorrow" as that's the only thing I could find online that's written by Azzarello and penciled by Jim Lee.
    December 29, 2018 9:53 pm Hey guys, I loved the show! I'm not sure if you're still reading comments but I was just wondering if any of you had played the PS4 Spider-Man game. I don't game much but it was the thing I was the most excited for in this year and it really delivered in my opinion. It was kinda short, but I loved every second we got!
    October 25, 2018 5:14 pm Hey guys, I don't mean to burst your bubble but I'm pretty sure the "Steve" in Thor is referring to Old King Thor's version. When he created a new humans, instead of naming them "Adam and Eve", he named them "Jane and Steve" (for obvious reasons). I think that was the Steve he was talking to. Here's a pictue of the panel: https://pm1.narvii.com/6642/f4de17ccfb0ecb71bcbad44b2c743eb19ed7ab5a_hq.jpg
    August 29, 2018 6:40 pm Oh one more thing! I've heard her compared to John Byrne's She-Hulk if that helps explain her character!
    August 29, 2018 6:38 pm Idk if you guys check these this late but, as a diehard Gwenpool fan, I just wanted to clear a little up. She's not an alternate universe Deadpool, she's a character from our universe named Gwen Poole who got dropped into 616. She's a longtime comic fan so she knows everything about all the characters and events. She also developed the power to move between panels and do some fun other fun meta stuff but that seems to be toned down in the new series. No hate or anything, just wanted to clear that up. Here's an example of her in the gutterspace using her powers: https://retconpunchdotcom.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/gwengod.jpg
