Welcome to Two-Headed Nerd #548: The Goldball Protocol! This week, we discuss Rob Liefeld’s most recent departure from Marvel, the upcoming Moira X title, the lawsuit over the X-Men Animated theme song, and Kevin Feige’s new position as King of Marvel Entertainment.

Plus, we try to make sense of DC’s new timeline and rumors of the upcoming 5G event in another edition of Ask a Nerd.
