    November 18, 2018 3:30 pm Great show, guys! I like Conor's thoughts on Mister Miracle -- because I came away thinking the same thing. There's also Scott mentioning that he can "always escape" at the end. Lends support to the idea that he offed himself, but given his nature, he can come back whenever he wants...he just doesn't want to at the moment. I also have thoughts on the Anti-Life Equation being a metaphor for depression.
    June 10, 2018 1:35 pm When the intro music kicked in, my first thought was "Oh God, what have they done?" Then the episode happened. And now all I want is a Patreon level where Josh does the entire podcast in Michael McDonald voice.
    April 28, 2018 4:52 pm Loved it. RE: The shield, I think Cap made the conscious choice not to retrieve it because of his schism with Tony. I think Cap took it to heart when Tony told him to give the shield back -- I don't think Steve thinks of it as his. Cap, being the guy that he is, probably felt honor-bound to leave the shield with Tony, as it was his father's invention, and Tony had just found out the truth behind his parents' murder. I think it's building towards a moment in the next movie where Tony will give the shield back to Cap.
    April 12, 2018 7:00 pm I know you probably dread going solo, but you have a talent for bantering with yourself, Josh. Nobody knows how to set you up for a joke like yourself.
    March 15, 2018 9:13 am Hasn't Jean been dead for longer than she's been alive? I say the other original X-Men probably have a decade on her at this point, heh.
    January 29, 2018 8:06 pm Thank you, sirs, for my power. I feel like this is a rebirth for me -- like a mutant, just discovering what his power is and learning that he's enrolled in a school for partially gifted old people. I promise to use my power responsibly. Also, I will look for a partner with the power to keep beverages at optimal cold temps. With our powers combined, we will be a force.
    June 12, 2017 1:00 am Conor, regarding the Wonder Woman Annual issue, I'm pretty sure the recent Superman Reborn arc essentially wiped out all New 52 continuity and replaced it with a hybrid continuity. That's why the Superman shown in the first meeting wasn't N52 -- because they're saying he was merged with pre-N52 Superman in Reborn, creating a whole new history. In addition, Superman and Wonder Woman also never had a romantic relationship. Basically, New 52 never happened the way we remember it, and the catalyst was the Supermen combining. Comics.
    February 26, 2017 5:07 pm ACTUALLY, Ron, Magneto was de-aged. I'm disappointed in you. He was changed to an infant and aged to his prime. Ewing did some interesting things with the Marvel timeline in the Ultimates, last year. I can't remember the specifics, but he wrote the timeline was constantly cosmically adjusting to the Marvel U. So, it's not so much that the characters are never aging, it's that time is being clipped, unbeknownst to anyone...or something. I remember thinking it was a great way to approach it when I read it. Someone please "actually" this for clarification.
    July 17, 2015 8:51 pm As always, thanks for the listening material, guys. I agree with 99% of everything stated. Maybe it was 100%, but I'm leaving it at 99 to cover myself. I may have liked it a little less than the panel, possibly. The movie was okay. It's on par with Incredible Hulk. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't anything I'll have a desire to rewatch unless I'm partaking in a Marvel movie marathon. Ant-Man is an eccentric-type character that would do well in a more eccentric type film, as Conor pointed out. They didn't do enough to break their mold when the opportunity was there. Yellowjacket was a dud -- Marvel continues to struggle with their antagonists. Hope was your typical tough-as-nails ice queen. I would've liked for them to use Janet's personality for Hope. We already have Hope's archetype in Black Widow and any number of other Marvel females. It would've been nice for them to make Hope "kick ass" in less literal ways. Not every Marvel heroine needs to know how to do that crotch takedown. Douglas was good as Pym, as was Rudd as Scott Lang. They did well with what they were given, I just don't think they were given much. I thought the little girl playing Cassie was great...they could've made Scott's relationship with her more of a focal point. Beyond that, like you guys, I loved the stuff with young Hank Pym. This movie could've worked better telling two stories (past and present) which linked up at the end. It would've provided a different flavor than the standard vanilla we got. I agree, the breakout star of the movie was Michael Pena. He had the funniest gags in the film, and his two scenes where he was "flashbacking" to Scott were probably the two best scenes in the movie. It was okay, but I left wanting more.
    May 24, 2015 7:20 pm From what I understand of Secret Wars, all of the territories are a mishmash of realities, occupying the same world. I think that's why the characters are not allowed to leave their area. If a character leaves their area and visits another, they'll see that there's another version of said character, and Doom would have a lot of explaining to do. The only characters experiencing that type of discovery are the 616 and 1610 characters, as their territory was merged into one. With the "616" and "1610" territories, I'm assuming that -- while these characters are technically the characters we've known from each respective ongoing universe -- their memories have been altered. Every character on Battleworld had their memories altered. While these are all alternate realities, these realities never worshiped Doom before the creation of Battleworld. That said, the only characters who seem to maintain knowledge of the prior status quo are those who managed to snag a life raft before the worlds collided. So, with Ultimate End, I think we're seeing the two universes operating with no recollection of any incursions, regardless of these being the 616 and 1610 universes from Secret Wars #1. 616 and 1610 are in the same boat all the other territories are -- Doom is their God, they don't remember when he wasn't, and they can't leave their territory.
