The burning question on everyone’s lips: Would Batman have been able to solve the Jack the Ripper murders?
Duh, obviously yeah.
Gotham by Gaslight, an Elseworlds tale from 1989, covers the whole story with art by pre-Hellboy Mike Mignola.
They even just made an animated movie out of it, which is different in A LOT of ways.

We heard that Black Panther was kind of a big deal (btw, check out last week’s spoilercast about the movie), so this week we’re looking at his short-lived stint as the leader of the Fantastic Four.
Written in 2007 by Dwayne McDuffie (Damage Control, Static Shock, much of the DC Animated Universe), Fantastic Four 544-550 finds the the titular team in disarray after Civil War. Reed and Sue take a break from the team, so the newly-married T’Challa and Storm join up with Johnny and Ben to fight classic foes like the Silver Surfer and the Frightful Four.
Doctor Strange, the Watchers, and Klaw also make guest appearances!

Happy Valentine’s Day! We’re celebrating in the traditional way, which is to doubt all love right before your wedding, but go through with it anyways.
At least that’s what’s Spider-Man did, yeesh. Don’t let that loser get you down though, there are some fun Marvel Weddings to be had!
We read three of them: Reed Richard & Sue Storm (Fantastic Four Annual 3), Peter Parker & MJ (Amazing Spider-Man Annual 21), and Scott Summers & Jean Grey (X-Men 30).

Anyone else ever been in a court room, representing a ghost or maybe Spider-Man, and just dying to change into She-Hulk?
But you can’t because your boss really wants you to stay regular old Jennifer Walters? But then he screws up by letting a bunch of miniaturized super-villains escape from a high-tech prison? Yeah, me neither.
Join us as we read She-Hulk 1-6 from 2004!
Next Time: Marvel Weddings (Fantastic Four Annual #3, Amazing Spider-Man Annual #21, X-Men #30)
Aunt May. It’s really a miracle that she lived as long as she did. The woman was in her 70’s for about 30 years, always on the verge of death from some disease or another.
In 1995, writer J. M. DeMatteis agreed and finally killed her off in Amazing Spider-Man #400.
There were also a bunch of Spider-Clones running around. Don’t worry, we’ll talk about that. Of course we’ll talk about that.

Does it count as a spoiler if it’s in the title? Jim Starlin don’t care, he does what he wants.
He and Marvel changed up their regular comic book format with The Death of Captain Marvel in 1982, the beginning of a line of original graphic novels intended to be richer stories for a more mature audience and published like traditional books.
But what kills him?!?!?! Sorry, no spoilers.
