On an all-new episode of The Superhero Show Show, The Taste Buds discuss the finale of Marvel 616 and Wonder Woman 84!
On this week’s Superhero Hour Hour, Cassie brings in her Unnatural 20’s compatriot Katelynn to hose the boys down and do some real talk about two things: Wonder Woman and Squirrel Girl. (In the interest of full disclosure, Katelynn doesn’t care about Wonder Woman, but Squirrel Girl is Katelynn’s favorite Marvel superhero, and overall superhero, and fictional character, and non-fictional person. She thinks Squirrel Girl is real). They start the show with a conversation about
HBO Max did something crazy, and release this summer’s biggest blockbuster into our homes six months later. And now you get to see what this foursome thought about it. And I’m going to let it be a surprise. I will not tell you what they thought about it. AARRRGGHH. It’s so hard not to tell you that they were not fans. It is not a good movie. BUT…which of the four of them did a good job explaining why it was a bad movie, and which of the four of them let their disappointment run all over them and just barf insults. OK, none of them did that. But no one like it. It’s a movie with a lot of flaws.
But here is the reason for the season. On the finale of Marvel 616, high school kids in Florida do a play about, among others, Squirrel Girl, and we brought in our Squirrel Girl expert to judge the depiction of the character, and the performances of these high school newbies.
That’s probably enough, right?
After that, we’re talking about episode 203 of Pennyworth, and of course we go to X-TASMANIA, to discuss Angel, Cable, Apocalypse, and all of the X-Men in between them. You know we’re trying to do an episode of X-Men: The Animated Series every week, and this one is a doozy. Rogue is in the hot seat this weak, and if you don’t think that seat is hot, she’ll touch you and then you’ll die. Like Cody. Do you want to be like Cody? Didn’t think so.
