Background

In this week’s ball-stalking episode, Magnus is rejoined by Jon M. Wilson to begin winding up the comic book-oriented portion of the ultra super mega epic 13-part Batman v. Superman megaseries epic of ultra superness!

This megaseries is all about saluting Batman comics, Superman comics and Batman & Superman comics! Oh yeah, and there will also be a lengthy Man of Steel retrospective as well as an initial reaction episode for Batman v Superman!

In terms of comics, this megaseries is all about the old, the new and a tasteful selection of stuff in between!

In this week’s adventure, Magnus and Wilson imperiously turn their collective attention to a crucial turning point in Superman’s publishing history. Yes indeed, the guys talk about Superman #1 cover dated January 1987.

And because they both suffer from the devil’s own case of ADD, they spend over two and a half hours working their way through it. No kidding! 2 hours, 42 minutes, 51 seconds of Superman #1 discussion.

But that’s not all that happens in these issues! Nope! An important character from the Silver Age gets an extensive makeover, forever altering his destiny in the Superman mythos!

For those determined to ruin the Internet for everyone else by perpetuating click-bait on Facebook, “Magnus melts Wilson’s brain with a Post-Crisis Superman conspiracy theory!”

Due to the avalanche of rugged awesomeness in this week’s show, unfortunately there was just no time for listener feedback this week.

A plan has been formed to be deal with the backlog of feedback but it’s far too early to go into details beyond that. Even so, fear not, loyal subjects! Your leader will reveal all in due course.

In the meantime, don’t let the lack of feedback this time 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!
