Welcome to Episode 46 of Tales of the Justice Society of America!
This week, Scott and Mike aren’t screwing around, Dear Listeners! There is no introductory discussion this week as the guys just jump right into the third chapter in the EPIC Crisis on Earth-Prime storyline.
Chapter Three takes place in Justice League of America #208, which boasts a fantastic George Perez cover featuring all of the main players completely mesmerized by the awesome ‘fro that the mushroom cloud-headed Per Degaton is sporting. He is sure to be a hit with the ladies, assuming they don├â┬ó├óΓÇÜ┬¼├óΓÇ₧┬ót die of radiation poisoning first.
This exciting chapter of the story tells the full story of why Earth-Prime is a desolate, holocaust-torn landscape in 1982 full of mutants and Aussie ex-cops trying to get a tanker truck full of gas to those that need it despite the bikers that want to stop them is revealed. Or… something like that.
You’ll love the funny bit involving a VCR! (If you don├â┬ó├óΓÇÜ┬¼├óΓÇ₧┬ót know what a VCR is, Scott and Mike suddenly feel REALLY old)
There is also a lot of fun discussion — including a quick history lesson on how DC completely screwed over the history of Hawkman; a brief discussion on the movie Fat Man and Little Boy (which leads to a discussion on Star Trek: The Next Generation because for minute Mike and Scott thought this was Star Trek Monthly Monday or something); a reminder on why Per Degaton stories bother Scott and Mike; Mike├â┬ó├óΓÇÜ┬¼├óΓÇ₧┬ós terrible John Travolta impersonation; Don Heck├â┬ó├óΓÇÜ┬¼├óΓÇ₧┬ós artwork; why Firestorm is kind of like Geordi La Forge (because – again – the guys think this is Star Trek Monthly Monday); why Kennedy probably wouldn├â┬ó├óΓÇÜ┬¼├óΓÇ₧┬ót have nuked Earth-Prime; and so much more!!
The guys also read a handful of YOUR e-mails! WOW!!
Next time: All-Star Squadron #15, the penultimate chapter of Crisis on Earth-Prime!
