We don't often journey outside the Marvel/DC bubble so always a treat when we do. Was the Tick lost in the shuffle of all the 90s comic animation and underappreciated? Could he have been a bigger merchandise powerhouse?? We'll find out! Join us as we discuss such topics as the origins of The Tick, why Arthur wears his superhero costume to work, the balance between laughing with and laughing at, plus the Monkees connection to this show!!

Star Spangled Podcast - Captain America (1966)
This week frequent guest Mike Crockett returns as we go back to the swinging 60s for the Captain America episode "The Bitter Taste Of Defeat"! This was the first attempt at Marvel animation which as we observe is about as bare bones as it gets. We discuss several topics including the great sound effects, brown not being a good color for super villains, a barrage of witty dialogue and Cap's creator preparing to punch a Nazi! All this and more as we take a look at the Sentinel of Liberty...in cartoon form!!
Strongest Podcast There Is - Hulk (1997)

We discuss our favorite Hulk stories of all time, Abomination being the Brooklyn Brawler of the Hulk universe, the voice over choices for She-Hulk, how creepy Gargoyle is and a Night Court reference!

We go back to 2014 from the Sailor Moon Crystal episode "Sailor Mars". It's a trip to her childhood as we see if the nostalgia holds up! Join us as we chat about such topics as my usual horrible butchering of Japanese names, how many times in 1 episode can they mention how beautiful someone is, talking cats, weird catch phrases, and Sailor Moon's baffling flight attendant outfit! All this and more as we celebrate the Multiverse's one year journey...in cartoon form!
Chilling In The Multiverse
I started listening to this podcast at the office today and gotta say, it really made my afternoon. Now I gotta track down the Fantastic Four Cartoon…if it’s possible. Great show, fun premise and an inviting host.
The whole family enjoyed Matt Spectro! It was a fun and interesting time! Can’t wait for the next episode
Fun podcast to listen to whenever I have a free hour
Very accessible and has a lot of love going into it, and impressive to hear Matt’s research into the history of the comics and heroes. The Batman and Green Lantern episodes were the most enjoyable so far, mostly since they’re animated features/series I remembered watching when I was younger
