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.

The Justice League movie is finally out, and Russ and Zach went there and came out of it with a non-spoiler review for all you fine people.
Overall, Russ loved the movie, while Zach was lukewarm on it. Both had some thoughts on a few shortcomings, and both had plenty of favorable comparisons to make. This is no Civil War or Suicide Squad.
