Avengers: United They Stand: Command Decision

Join Scott and Hamish as they continue their look at the Marvel animated series of the 90s and watch an episode of what some call the worst Marvel cartoon ever made: “Avengers: United They Stand”. Imagine if The Avengers we’re saving the world in the future, and had to wear hideous transforming robot suits of armor. Oh, and also Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor aren’t even on the team. Who would lead the team, then? Why, none other than Ant-Man! The fun-loving Scott Lang Ant-Man? No, the perpetually angry and insecure Hank Pym Ant-Man! And it just keeps getting better from there! Listen as they breakdown the episode “Command Decision”, a very special story where Captain America randomly shows up to help the Avengers fight Baron Zemo and his “Masters of Evil”. They’ll discuss the making of this series, how closely connected it is to the rest of the Marvel animated series of the 1990s, and why it pales in comparison to the shows that came before it. They’ll also detail the origins of the characters in the comics, and talk about why this show was little more than a half-hour commercial for a new line of action figures. So put on your futuristic armor, and grab a hot cup of coffee, because you’re gonna need it! Hey! Where’s that coffee?!

Captain America: Civil War (Comics and Trailers)

Join Scott and his guests, Kevin, and Civil War comics expert, Chet, as they delve deep and gear up for the much anticipated release of the latest movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: "Captain America: Civil War"! They'll first breakdown the seven-part Civil War comic book miniseries by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, released in 2006, and theorize what story elements may be translated to the screen, what may be changed, and what the volumes of supplemental Civil War comics material add to this story. Then, they breakdown the two major Civil War movie trailers, and discuss how these scenes relate to the previous films of the MCU as well as the original comics source material. (As well as the first looks at Black Panther and Spider-Man!) Will there be another "Stamford incident"? Will another hero die? How will the character of Spider-Man be used in this story? Will Crossbones kill Captain America? All of these questions are tacked, and much much more! So step out of your cryonic containment, brush your perfect teeth, and enjoy the show! (After all, we could do this all day.)
