Welcome to Two-Headed Nerd Episode #663, where our sentient Cosmic Longbox is forcing us into classic comic book reviews based on a theme. This time our theme is about getting to WORK! Sometimes a hero or villain does a very specific job and what better way to let everyone know your specialty than putting it right in your name? Prepare for examinations of the aptly named Wrecking Crew, The Master Jailer, Deadshot, Big Wheel and plenty of other characters with their job right there in their name!
BONUS! Uncle Joe’s Story Time: Two Johns and a Roger, The Convoluted Origins of Metallo
