We heard that Black Panther was kind of a big deal (btw, check out last week's spoilercast about the movie), so this week we're looking at his short-lived stint as the leader of the Fantastic Four.

Written in 2007 by Dwayne McDuffie (Damage Control, Static Shock, much of the DC Animated Universe), Fantastic Four 544-550 finds the the titular team in disarray after Civil War.  Reed and Sue take a break from the team, so the newly-married T'Challa and Storm join up with Johnny and Ben to fight classic foes like the Silver Surfer and the Frightful Four.

Doctor Strange, the Watchers, and Klaw also make guest appearances!

Next Time: Gotham by Gaslight

Spoilers spoilers spoilers!

We have a very special episode to talk about the biggest movie in the world, Black Panther!  Was Killmonger right?  How good of a performance did young Forest Whitaker give?  Are the Oscars for Costume Design and Original Song already locked up

Special guest Marselles from The Blurred Nerds and Pixl Gods podcasts joins special guest Kimberly on this episode.  Bruce also chimes in with his favorite moments from Thor: Ragnarok

Next week, we'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming covering Fantastic Four 544-550 (Black Panther & Storm join the Fantastic Four)!

Happy Valentine’s Day! We’re celebrating in the traditional way, which is to doubt all love right before your wedding, but go through with it anyways.

At least that’s what’s Spider-Man did, yeesh. Don’t let that loser get you down though, there are some fun Marvel Weddings to be had!

We read three of them: Reed Richard & Sue Storm (Fantastic Four Annual 3), Peter Parker & MJ (Amazing Spider-Man Annual 21), and Scott Summers & Jean Grey (X-Men 30).

Next Time: Fantastic Four 544-550 (Black Panther & Storm join the Fantastic Four)
