Shang-Chi! CM Punk! It’s a double-topical episode! Shang-Chi is finally getting a movie and we admittedly knew absolutely nothing about him, so we went back to his beginnings in Special Marvel Edition #15 & #16 which was then renamed to Master of Kung Fu and the story continued with #17-19.
But we didn’t stop there! We also read Master of Kung Fu #126 written by the Best in the World himself, CM Punk.
Then we continued our long-read of The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck with #2. So much content!!!
If we’ve learned anything from this show, the best way to make a cool Thor comic is to take a non-human character and put Thor clothes on it. It worked with Frog Thor and it totally works with Beta Ray Bill.
We read his 1st appearance at the beginning of Walt Simonson’s classic run from the mid 80s in issues 337-343.
Thor also fights a dragon and changes his secret identity situation from unnecessary to still unnecessary.
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps building towards Infinity War, we’re doing the same with all of Jim Starlin’s Infinity books and this time it’s the Infinity Gauntlet, a 6-issue miniseries and one of Marvel’s best event comics of all time.
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!
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.
