It's time to revisit our favorite super fascists in Squadron Supreme: Death of a Universe, a one-shot from the Marvel Graphic Novel line that came out 5 years after the original series.

Turns out this takes place A WEEK after the original series. We'll see the team realize the error of their ways and... fight a giant hand from outer space? 

Then we moved onto Amazing Spider-Man #5 where Doctor Doom really botches a kidnapping.

Next Time: Super-Villain Team-Up: MODOK's 11 + MODOK's first appearance in Tales of Suspense #94

Before Big Hero 6 was a movie, it was a Marvel superhero team based out of Japan that got two largely forgotten miniseries.

We're reading their 5-issue mini from 2008 written by classic X-Men scribe Chris Claremont and drawn by David Nakayama.

Unfortunately these issues may have been better off remaining forgotten, because Big Hero 6 might be the Balan Wonderworld of comics. We try to figure out just what the heck went wrong and how they avoided these disasters with the movie.

We had a much better time reading Amazing Spider-Man #4 and seeing Spidey throw sand in the air.

Next Time: Squadron Supreme: Death of a Universe
