NERD NEWS for this episode:

  • Iron Man and Hellcat sitting in a tree?
  • Transformers and G.I. Joe roll out of IDW, head to Skybound?
  • A schoolboard in TN got high on CRT and banned Spiegelman’s Maus… Sigh…

And of course, the Question of the Week

This week’s question inspired by the X Lives/Deaths of Wolverine: what is your favorite alternate persona of a comic book character? For example, Matt LOVES Patch, but HATES Matches Malone for some reason. No What Ifs, just your fave examples of a character assuming a different identity.

After that we’re taking your calls and discussing:

  • DC/WB movies and where does the HBOMax Batgirl fit in?
  • Shadow and Bone on Netflix.
  • Moon Knight, the costume, the accent, and where is this going?
  • Eternals and the problem with a text crawl that’s not in Star Wars.
  • The Book of Boba Fett, when the Mandalorian steals the show…
  • Marvel’s Echo, is she gonna kiss Daredevil or what?
