In 2009, after the abomination of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, who would have thought the Wolverine trilogy would rise from the ashes like a phoenix to bring us Logan, one of the best superhero movies of all time.
In this spoiler-filled episode, we discuss the whole Wolverine “trilogy” and how Logan and Origins have remarkably similar beats (only one movie is, you know, good). We also reflect on Hugh Jackman’s 17-year tenure as James Howlett/Logan/Wolverine. And what scenes in Logan made us cry (spoiler alert: it’s different for each of our panelists)!
Plus the answers to questions you didn’t even know you needed to know about Wolverine’s healing factor!

Iron Fist is finally getting his own TV show and we’re not entirely sure who’s excited about that. We went back to the mid-70’s to read his first solo series in hopes of finding out where his appeal came from… and we came up short.
The good news is that literally every other character is way more interesting than Danny Rand himself, so there’s still plenty of fun stuff to talk about.
Join us for our 50th Episode Super Kung-Fu Podstravagaza Special which is secretly hosted by skeletons wearing our clothes.

Old Man Hawkeye. I mean… wait… Old Man Logan, a comic book about Venom-Dinos, Dumb Hulks, and the Red Skull doing creepy Captain America cosplay. And Wolverine was kind of in it too.
It’s a goofball buddy comedy road trip for the ages!
On the 2nd episode of First vs Last, we go back to a simpler time when everybody agreed that Nazis were bad and worthy of punching. Chris and Kimberly join Vince to discuss the film history of everyone’s favorite whip-wielding community college professor: Indiana Jones!
We’ll look at the much beloved Raiders of the Lost Ark and compare it to 2008’s Kingdom of the Crystal Skull — which if you ask the internet, was the worst movie ever made!
Also covered: Reddit’s top fan theories, which panelist’s dad REALLY wants to be Indiana Jones in real life, and was Crystal Skull doomed to be a hated film from the start?
Everybody’s favorite Baldwin brother hosted SNL for a record 17th time!

For being one of DC’s most important heroes, we sure haven’t given the Flash much attention.
We tried to remedy that by reading a classic Mark Waid story from the early 90s called The Return of Barry Allen, a story that manages to encompass every generation of the Flash.
You’ll get the modern Flash, Wally West. You’ll get the Golden Age Flash, Jay Garrick. And, of course, you’ll get the return of the titular Silver Age Flash… unless there’s a plot twist of some sort… but don’t worry, I’m sure that won’t happen…
