You need to learn how to love yourself, or at least how to not actively try to murder yourself.
020 Astonishing X-Men (1 of 2)
Dec 11, 2019 • 36 min
Moving from the Avengers back to the X-Men means more emphasis on pharmaceutical ethics, and exactly the same amount of emphasis on AI sentience.

The children are our future, but if they try and change it too much it’ll break the space-time continuum.
018 New Avengers: Breakout & Sentry
Nov 27, 2019 • 29 min
Some heroes are brought together by fate, while others are brought together by editorial mandates to revitalize a comic book franchise with more dynamic and fan-favorite characters. Hey, why not both.
017 Secret War
Nov 20, 2019 • 30 min
Who could have guessed that – no matter when this episode came out – the story of US forces destabilizing a foreign government would still be pretty relevant.
016 Spider-Man: Marvel Knights

Nov 6, 2019 • 24 min
Just because the war ends doesn’t mean the soldiers stop fighting.

012 Marvels
Oct 16, 2019 • 26 min

011 Jessica Jones and the Purple Man
Oct 9, 2019 • 21 min

Genocide, love triangles, space birds, and twin murder.
002 Spider-Man: Return of the Goblin
