Great job!! Love this podcast and look forward to it every Sunday night or Monday morning. I look forward to your entertaining discussions on all things superhero. The art work and show notes are remarkable and unlike any other. Your knowledge is impressive and your banter feels like I’m listening to old friends.
Great in-depth discussion of superhero movies
I love this podcast. It’s one I look forward to every week. The guys really dig into news and online information about superhero stuff, mainly movies. They are easy to listen to, well-read and have interesting ideas. I don’t always agree with them but I always think about what they say. Thanks to both of you.
So you guys asked how can joker match up age wise with Batman simple cure he falls into acid vat and it slows his age gives him poison immunity also red hood story could tie in some how !!!
