Welcome to Episode #637 where our sentient Cosmic Longbox is forcing us into classic comic book reviews based on a theme. This time our theme is “Trapped in a suit”! Think of characters like Captain Atom, Wildfire, or Fuji, for all you Wildstorm nerds, whose powers force them to live inside a containment suit. Join us for tales of characters who will never feel human contact again because they’re TRAPPED, IN A SUIT!!!
