The Superhero Show Show #375
A Very Omni-Man Mother’s Day
It’s the Invincible finale, plus the Legends of Tomorrow premiere, and so much more, on an all-new The Superhero Show Show!
On an all-new,\ The Superhero Show Show, Cassie and the Boyz are taking in the spectacle that is Amazon Prime’s Invincible! Cassie is not a huge gore fan, so it’s up to Mike and Ryan to convince her she’s wrong! Will Nolan and Mark have any relationship breakthroughs? Or will it be PunchFest 2021? If you’ve seen ANY episodes of Invincible, you can probably answer that question without watching this one, but still…this one is dope. The Taste Buds also discuss Mark’s relationships with all of the women in his life, and of course go over the appearance of the most handsome alien in the galaxy, Allen!
Then the Taste Buds turn their sights to every other comic book-based television show that came out this week, including BATWOMAN, BLACK LIGHTNING, FEAR THE WALKING DEAD, THE FLASH, LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, SUPERGIRL, and VAN HELSING!
Finally, the Friends head towards X-TASmania, and watch another episode of X-Men: The Animated Series! This one – believe it or not – is a doozy, complete with quarantines, Proud Boys, and blaming Asians for plagues! What!?!? This show is so fake. None of this could have ever happened.
All of this, and so much more, on an all-new, all-different Superhero Show Show!
