Johnny Storm attacks homeless people with fire and then throws them in the ocean. Using explosives makes ice sink. Namor was amnesiac for either 15 or 50 years, depending on how you interpret Marvel’s sliding time. And Zach wants to throw grenades at you from the sky. Everything we talk about in today’s episode all about Namor is so dull, mundane, and boring, that we dare you not to listen.
Werewolf by Night surprised everybody by suddenly entering the MCU. Kevin Feige insists he’ll be ESSENTIAL to the stories they’ll be telling in the future. Searnold and Zach will break down why that might be, where the title “Werewolf by Night” came from, and some of the zanier shenanigans from the old 70’s comics. How is Mario Kart involved? You’ll have to listen to find out!
Do you need to know more than what’s in the title? Yes you do! That’s why you should listen to this episode of the Doombots Podcast. While the topic may sound silly, we actually get into some pretty deep discussion about what responsibility creators have to make sure their work isn’t used for ill. Does the modern Krakoan era of X-Men stories accidentally promote racism? What is the value of incorporating known mythology into modern “pop” stories? And what does it mean that “If you die in Otherworld, you come back wrong.”
This week we ostensibly talk about Nightcrawler starting his own New Age-y religion for mutants on Krakoa, but there’s a great big chunk that’s mostly about how much Zach hates Doctor Nemesis and thinks the way Marvel handles godly power in the comic universe is nonsense. Enjoy!
She-Hulk has been through a lot in her history as Marvel comics’s premiere superhero lawyer. From helping Spider-Man sue J. Jonah Jameson to fighting against Daredevil over the fate of Captain America, we’ll look at some of her weirdest, funniest, and most important cases. We’ll also talk about that time she thought she was a character in a comic book. What a crazy thing for someone to think!
We didn’t quite cover enough Thor last episode, so now we’re taking a look at everything Loki has been up to, why Ragnarok doesn’t make a ton of sense, and how the War of the Realms played out!
Thor comics are weird, and great, and everything in between. This week — with ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ hitting theaters, were taking a look at how Jane Foster became Thor in the comics!
It’s finally here! The 2 year anniversary of the Doombots Podcast will feature a slew of cut content from past episodes. From overly emotional reactions, to discussions about language and the Dewey Decimal system, this episode has it all. Including a lot of immature humor! Come laugh and scream and generally have fun with us as we look back on some shit that was so whacky it didn’t make the cut into a regular episode.
This week, we’re looking at #26 through 50 in our roundup of the weirdest, best and downright inexplicable C-list (or lower) characters we hope to see in the MCU!
Marvel Comics has a vast array of characters. As more and more of them become popularized in the MCU, Searnold and Zach take a look at 50 that you’ve probably never heard of, talk a bit about how they might fit into the MCU, and why they have remained on the C list. The Space Friends, Big Wheel, and 8-Ball all made the list. Who will be your new favorite? Who will you wish you could scrub from your memory? Let’s find out together in this week’s episode of The DoomBots Podcast!
