Welcome to THN Cover to Cover 10/15: She-Hulk, Andor, Hellraiser, Halloween Ends & Your Calls! Recorded LIVE in front of a Discord audience! This week, Joe and Matt discuss a bevy of nerdy topics with the Listenerds, including…
- What is Aunt May’s full name?
- Werewolf By Night and the creepy future of the MCU!
- The agony and the ecstasy of the She-Hulk finale
- RIP Gambit… Don’t worry they already announced a new series for Gambit and Rogue.
- The Morlocks and how to hide in the sewers like a complete amature.
- Matt defends the cult horror classic Phantasm.
- Matt and Joe skewer Halloween Ends.
- Superman’s Mullet.
- Andor talk!
And of course, the Question of the Week, courtesy of Anathmatician via Discord: Question of the week suggestion! In the most recent episode of cover to cover, Brian Domingos flatly refused to accept Namor is a mutant despite Marvel repeatedly making it part of continuity. I respect his consistency on this issue, and it got me thinking: What is the established element of comics continuity which you absolutely refuse to accept, no matter how often companies try and insist that it is the case? For me, it is John Constantine being a superhero. I started reading Constantine in the original issues of Hellblazer, and the idea that he is part of any kind of Justice League, even a dark one, is so weird to me that I can not fit it into my brain.
