    Loki #1: Glorious Purpose

    Loki #1: Glorious Purpose

    The premiere begins in 2012, with Loki using the Tesseract to escape the custody of The Avengers. He is immediately captured by the Time Variance Authority and taken to stand trial for his alleged crime. The TVA is an all-powerful organization created by entities known as the Timekeepers to maintain the proper flow of time. Judge Renslayer is just about to “reset” a guilty Loki, but the God of Mischief is saved by Agent Mobius, an investigator who hunts particularly dangerous variants. Mobius interrogates Loki in an effort to break through his emotional defenses, showing Loki his future and the consequences of his actions. Loki briefly escapes, only to realize the futility of it and, in the process, his own insignificance and powerlessness in the universe. Mobius then offers Loki a proposition. He wants Loki to help the TVA hunt down a fugitive variant that has been killing teams of TVA Minutemen, because the variant is Loki himself. 


     


    Loki is Marvel’s third Disney+ show, continuing Phase 4 of the MCU. Loki stars Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, Sophia DiMartino, and Richard E. Grant.

    MCU#9 - Thor The Dark World

    MCU#9 - Thor The Dark World

    The Madames roast the film that has them wondering why it was even made, since Malekith’s problem could’ve been solved with a trip to Sunglass Hut. They discuss how Thor: The Dark World is barely about Thor or The Dark World, which is kind of a problem, since the movie is called Thor: The Dark World. There’s also plenty of ranting about the tone-deaf treatment of women, particularly Jane Foster, whose character assassination is on par with Abraham Lincoln’s. And of course, no episode covering the Thor franchise would be complete without Kris salivating over Loki like a cartoon wolf. 


     


    Thor: The Dark World is the second film in the Thor franchise and Phase Two of the MCU. Overall it is the eighth film of the Infinity Saga.


     


    Thor: The Dark World stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Kat Dennings, Stellan Skarsgard, and Christopher Eccleston.

    FATWS #6 - One World, One People

    FATWS #6 - One World, One People

    In the series finale, the hunt for the Flag Smashers culminates in New York City, where Karli Morgenthau and her allies have infiltrated GRC operations in order to stop the global resettlement plans. Bucky arrives to help and is joined by Sharon Carter. Sam flies in wearing his new suit and wings, having finally accepted the mantle of Captain America. Cap fights Batroc while Bucky tries to thwart Karli’s plans to evacuate the building. Sharon, who is revealed to be the Power Broker, is playing all sides throughout the episode. Karli creates various diversions to delay Sam and Bucky, who prioritize saving lives. She takes two trucks full of GRC officials hostage, but Sam and Bucky manage to save them all, even with John Walker showing up to take his vengeance on Karli. Together, Bucky and a more stable Walker apprehend Karli’s core group. But Sharon corners Karli and Batroc horns in on their business. Sharon kills Batroc, but not before he also shoots her. When Sam arrives, it appears that Karli has shot Sharon. A fight ensues, with Sharon saving Sam’s life by fatally shooting Karli, keeping Sharon’s secret safe. Sam gives an impassioned speech to the GRC officials, which is caught on live TV. His efforts are enough for the GRC to suspend their resettlement plans. 


     


    After the battle, Zemo manages to execute the remaining Flag Smashers from his cell at The Raft. John Walker goes to work for the mysterious Val, becoming the U.S. Agent. Bucky finishes his therapeutic work and makes peace with his past, present, and future. He joins the Wilsons, who are celebrating Sam’s journey, for a family party in Louisiana. As promised, Sharon Carter receives a full pardon from the U.S. government and regains her job at SHIELD, setting her up to be the ultimate double agent. And Sam brings Isaiah Bradley to the Smithsonian Institute to see the long overdue exhibit that Sam got installed.


     


    The Falcon and the Winter Soldier continues Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Disney+ series stars Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Wyatt Russell, Emily Van Camp, Daniel Bruhl, Adepero Oduye, Erin Kellyman, Florence Kasumba,and Amy Aquino.

    FATWS #5 - Truth

    FATWS #5 - Truth

    Sam and Bucky confront Walker after he publicly executed a Flag Smasher. When Walker refuses to give up the shield, a bloody fight ensues, with Sam forcibly taking the shield and heading back to the GRC camp with Bucky. The GRC takes jurisdiction over the manhunt of Karli Morgenthau and her followers, leaving Sam out of the loop. Sam leaves his broken wings with Torres and heads to Baltimore, while Bucky hunts down Zemo. Meanwhile, John Walker is stripped of his titles, including Captain America, and discharged from the military immediately. He is approached by an enigmatic woman named Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine, who clearly wants to recruit Walker for something nefarious. Sam talks with Isaiah Bradley and gains a clearer understanding of his story and legacy. Bucky and Zemo both choose not to kill each other, and Bucky hands Zemo over to Ayo and the Wakandan Dora Milaje. Sam returns home to Louisiana, where he and Sarah finally create a workable plan to save their family business. Bucky joins them to help and brings Sam a long-awaited peace offering. While fixing the boat and training with the shield, Sam and Bucky work through their issues and finally bond as buddies. But Karli is busy planning an attack on the GRC, with the help of Batroc, who is working for the shadowy Sharon Carter. As Karli’s plot commences, Sam appears to be ready to take on the mantle of Captain America, no matter how the U.S. government feels about it.

    FATWS #4 - The Whole World is Watching

    FATWS #4 - The Whole World is Watching

    In a flashback, we see that Ayo was integral in Bucky’s deprogramming and overall healing. She gives Bucky 8 hours to hand Zemo over to the Wakandans. In that time, Sam, Bucky, and Zemo go to Donya Modani’s memorial in search of Karli Morgenthau. However, John Walker and Lemar Hoskins demand to join them. Sam tries to negotiate a truce with Karli, but an increasingly aggressive Walker attacks and a fight with the Flag Smashers ensues. Zemo ambushes Karli and destroys the vials of super serum that are knocked loose in the scuffle. Walker drops in, knocking out Zemo and pocketing the one remaining unbroken vial of serum. A wounded Karli escapes, and the men regroup at Zemo’s apartment. Walker again tries to take Zemo into custody, but the Dora Milaje arrive first. Walker makes a wrong move, and the warriors attack. In the chaos, Zemo escapes and the Dora completely neuter Walker. After Karli threatens his sister Sarah, Sam agrees to meet with Karli again. Upon arriving,  Sam gets alerted by Sharon Carter that Walker is crashing the meeting again. Another fight ensues, only this time the Flag Smashers get more than they bargained for when they realize Walker has taken the super serum. During the melee, Karli inadvertently kills Hoskins, fueling Walker’s rage. Unable to find a fleeing Karli, Walker pursues her friend, who Walker precedes to decapitate with his shield on a street in front of dozens of filming witnesses.

Fresh perspectives and great humor

After each episode of WandaVision, there’s so much to discuss and dissect. These lady’s do an excellent job of providing a fresh perspective and their attention to detail is Marvelous (pun intended)! They’re also super engaging with their fans via Twitter which is always an added bonus!

These Madames Truly Are Marvelous!

I found this podcast through a discussion about Wandavision on Twitter, and it has been the most marvelous (sorry, not sorry) of finds. Amy and Kris are brilliant, engaging, detailed in their discussion, and an absolute joy to listen to, and I love that they come armed with knowledge of comics history, MCU history, and storytelling tropes. Even though they know what they’re talking about, it never seems like they’re talking down to the audience, and their chemistry makes the show easy listening - it’s always good when your co-hosts clearly get along. I highly recommend this podcast - it’s fun and passionately nerdy in the best of ways. My only regret is that it took me nearly a year into this podcast’s existence to discover them!
