Episode 121- This is the End 03- Terminal Velocity (with J. David Weter But You Can Call Him Dave!)

In this week’s ball-racing episode, J. David Weter But You Can Call Him Dave swings by to hang out with Magnus and continue His Excellency’s This is the End mega series, which is all about that trend in the 90’s when the main hero would die, get incapacitated or otherwise get chased out of his job in favor of someone else.

Here at Trentus Magnus Punches Reality, our dedicated staff universally adore those stories (or else!). And, as long time loyal subjects learned from the beginning, what Magnus believes is the definitive statement as to what *IS*.

This week, Dave and Magnus gab about all things Terminal Velocity. What did Mark Waid do right? What did his army of artists royally screw up? Does Terminal Velocity even count for the aforementioned “Let’s replace the main hero” shtick?

Dave and Magnus take turns pining for Mike Wieringo, analyzing story bits and having an open, balanced exchange concerning Dave’s opinions about Impulse. No judgments are made, both points of view are validated and the mutual respect practically drips off the mp3 file containing this open exchange of equally valid ideas. At no time does one threaten to beat the other with a chair. Really! Honest!

For those determined to ruin the Internet for everyone else by perpetuating click-bait on Facebook, “You won’t believe what Dave says about Bart Allen!”

Yes indeed, comics are read, fun is had and both sides get equal time as Magnus and Dave get swept away in Terminal Velocity’s rather unexpected problems.

Because of the virtual deluge of ball-stomping comic book talk, unfortunately there was just no time for listener feedback this week.

But don’t let that get you down! You can still offer your feeble effort at tribute! You humble serfs are always welcome to kiss your benevolent leader’s ring. Corrupt DiManzocorp interns are ready, willing, able and eager to accept your bribe to present your meager missives to your wise emperor. The email address to use is trentusmagnus@gmail.com as the other seems to be having technical problems.

In an another sublime act of truly unprecedented charity, the leader permits you lowly rabble to suggest topics for a future episode. Thus, petitions may be sent to trentusmagnus@gmail.com for DiManzocorp interns to review, whereupon your leader might consider thinking about the possibility of potentially discussing whatever you have in mind some day. And that’s a promise!
