Whoa, Carnage is so Maximum it’s taking us two episodes to get through it. Spider-Man seems to be having a tough time getting through Maximum Carnage as well, because in parts 8-14 he really just can’t deal anymore.
All Star Superman also rolls on with issue 8. Booooooo!!!!! (Don’t worry, that’s a Bizarro Boo.)
Next Time: The New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract (Tales of the Teen Titans #42-44, Annual #3)
What happens when a bunch of Avengers villains band together to form The Masters of Evil? They take over Avengers Mansion of course! We take a look at a classic storyline by Roger Stern and John Buscema from the mid 80’s called Under Siege that ran in issues 270-277 (with a little underwater break in 272).
We’ll meet a bunch of our favorite B, C, and D-list villains and see if ol’ sock-head Baron Zemo can lead them to victory!
Next week, the Marvel Cinematic Universe tears itself apart in Captain America: Civil War, based on the best-selling Marvel comic CIVIL WAR!
We go back 10 years ago to read the original CIVIL WAR, where Captain America and Iron Man broke up, Spider-Man told the world he was Peter Parker, and everybody’s best friend (who hadn’t been in a comic in over decade) died!
This one’s for Cody!
Ready for some trippy 60’s comic book art? We sure are, and you can bet your American flag that Steve Rogers is too! For only three issues in 1969, Jim Steranko infused Captain America with a dose of Salvador Dali and delivered some of the coolest, most surreal, early Marvel issues we’ve ever seen.
Join us as we talk about the (first) time Cap faked his own death in Captain America 110, 111, and 113.
After the break, check out some more of Steranko’s amazing art!

Remember that time in the 70’s when Godzilla was shrunken down by Ant-Man, fought the Fantastic Four and the Avengers as he grew large again, traveled through time twice, and even had his photo snapped by good ol’ Spider-Man? You don’t?!?! Well it’s true! Not only did Godzilla have his very own 24-issue Marvel comic, but it’s ALL in continuity.
So come join Vince, Chris, and Kia as they relive the finale of this insane series (Godzilla: King of the Monsters #20-24) and see just how our big green dino-friend fit himself into the Marvel Universe.
There’s more than one way to skin an evil murderous robot. Vince, Chris, and Kia took a look back at a couple of classic Ultron stories written 30 years apart to see just how things have changed in the comic book world.
LISTEN in amazement as they discuss differences between the movies and the comics and try to wrap their heads around exactly what the heck is going on with the Avengers.
This episode: Avengers Vol. 1 #66-68 , Avengers Vol. 3 #19-22 (Ultron Unlimited)
