Scott and Mike are back once again to discuss the greatest super-hero team to ever grace the printed page, The JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA! This week we have another episode jam-packed with comic book-y goodness!
First off, the e-mails from the most amazing and AWESOME listening audience in this or any other universe! The talk is fast and furious and includes more discussion on such varied topics as BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD, what sort of metal music Hawkman would listen to (Scott thinks Carter would be a Winger fan), how a meeting of the JSA might go if the Flash got called out for his… er, self-indulgences… and much, much more!!
Then it’s on to Adventure Comics #463 and 464 (which feels a lot like the ALL-STAR COMICS #76 it was probably intended to be). In 463, the JSA seek vengeance for the Death of Batman, but man is this a wonky story!! It feels like there must’ve been some scenes cut out of it, so hopefully there’ll be a special edition DVD at some point. Oh well, at least we get an explanation as to how Dick and Helena get their secret identities back.
After that, in 464, Wildcat goes out for a night on the town with a teenage boy…. uh, waitaminute… that sounds bad. All right, let’s try that again. Wildcat declines an invitation to hang out with Robin, Power Girl and Huntress and ends up meeting a teenage boy on the street. Ummmm… That’s not much better. Okay, here it is… Wildcat goes out to clear his head and ends up having a conversation with a teenage boy that is totally on the up and up and NOTHING INAPPROPRIATE HAPPENS! WE PROMISE! The fact that Wildcat quits the Society after this is a TOTAL COINCIDENCE! Yeah, that works…
No ads again this week, dammit, but they will return next week as does the Hostess ad! Whoo-hoo! And, as always, Mike and Scott take a stroll through the other books that came out from DC at the same time.
So go on… listen already!
