The Superhero Show Show #376
Zack Snyder’s Jupiter’s Legacy
It’s the first episode of Jupiter’s Legacy, plus so much more, on an all-new The Superhero Show Show
On a very special episode of The Superhero Show Show, Katelynn from Unnatural 20’s banged down the door and barged in, all vaxxed up and ready to talk about Netflix’s newest comic book entry, Jupiter’s Legacy! The show did not get great reviews out of the gate, so will Cassie, Katelynn, and the Boyz agree with the majority of critics, or will they find something to like in this Mark Millar adaptation. This is the first television show to be based on his comic books, so the Taste Bud’s opinions on his adaptations begin here! We already know they’re huge Josh Duhamel fans, so that’s a step in the right direction.
Then, the Friends discuss every other television show based on a comic book this week, including reviews of BATWOMAN, BLACK LIGHTNING, FEAR THE WALKING DEAD, THE FLASH, LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, SUPERGIRL, and VAN HELSING! That’s too much show!
But wait…THERE’S MORE…as the Taste Buds return once again to X-TASMANIA, to discuss episode 208 of X-Men: The Animated Series, Time Fugitives Part II! Will Cable make it back in time to unleash a deadly disease that will kill millions so that he can save different millions? Will any of this make sense? And who will win the coveted award for most 90’s thing?
Plus Ryan sat down with Justin and Alicia of the X-Wife Podcast to chat about Justin’s adventures into getting Alicia into X-Men comic books! The husband and wife duo break down the Power of X for Ryan, the trouble with starting a comic journey with Johnathan Hickman, why Professor Xavier is a bastard.
So much to discuss on an all-new, all-different Superhero Show Show!
