In this special episode, recorded in October and forgotten until now, Zach and Russ talk about the trend of making every protagonist an antihero, what (if anything) can bring more traditional heroes back to the forefront, and the role of superhero films in setting that tone.

Also, Zach compares Iron Man to Jesus. Like, a lot.

These are Russ's FAVORITE (not BEST) comic book movies.

Have fun tweeting horrible things at him for it.

A new episode featuring more than just one person (I KNOW, RIGHT?) is coming this week, although it won't be until at least Wednesday because we are recording tonight and it has to go out to Patreon backers for two days first.

You should also check out our new Patreon -- you can find it here, and among other things backers can get a monthly, exclusive video podcast DELIVERED ON VHS.

...and yeah. Only one comic book movie. Promise. Mostly. Ish.
