There’s nothing you can do to get us to join your Evil League of Evil.
It’s a rough ride as Lani and Joshua close out this season. But before they hit the trail of narrative chicanery, Joshua tells Lani all about superheroes and their annoying offspring from the future.
We Don’t Half-Hit People.
For an introduction to the Lighthouse, Joshua talks about what agency looks to space in the 616 and then Lani discusses all the time, and story, out of joint.
Rain or shine, the man with the umbrella’s always ready.
Joshua tells Lani about Villain Worlds and how they’re different from Bizarro Worlds and makes some recommendations of Villain Worlds to read and others to avoid. Then they dive hard into the Framework to discuss returns of favorite and less favorite characters, ships that were a bad idea, and, just because they have time, they kick around the very nature of reality.
We are freakin’ robots.
For the LMD arc, Joshua points out two knock-off Captains America as well as the shell game that is LMDs and Doombots in the 616. Then Lani leads the conversation about identity, bad girl shenanigans, ill conceived ships, and the missed opportunities in LMD.
We know what a good light source is. A guy with a flaming head.
It’s a vengeance fueled story arc on Agents of SHIELD as they introduce GHOST RIDER! Joshua and Lani dive into the more mystical end of the Marvel comics before freaking out about how cool a flaming skull in a Dodge Charger is.
We’re running. Very Fast. Away.
Just like real life, it is a cavalcade of difficult topics for Joshua and Lani discuss. Slavery, both fictional and otherwise, the misuse of police powers, and more are mixed into the usual, and enjoyable, spy and relationship shenanigans.
We’ll discuss the consequences of your little science fair later.
As we pick back up with the Agents, Joshua discusses the thematic overlap between Inhumans and the X-Men. Then Lani and Joshua kick around the various couples and how their relationships impact the arc.
We’re leaving because of witches. Welcome to the new Dark Ages.
Joshua discusses the many and deadly foes of Spider-Man while defending secret identities. Then, Lani and Joshua discuss how this could have been two great Spidey movies instead of one good one.
Until this exact moment, we thought you were Build-A-Bear
At last! The ending of one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time! Lani and Joshua talk about the end to the Thanos Saga as well as the mixed bag of endings some of our original Avengers received. Joshua also goes back to the DC Universe of the mid 1990s to try and explain the time travel in this movie. (Spoiler: it isn’t really time travel.)
