Face Front, True Believer! In the earliest days of #MarvelSHP, when Frank was still working out his agenda, he stumbled upon Patsy Walker's surprisingly rich legacy of one of Marvel's earliest and most important but least recognized characters! It's been three years since he tried to spread the word to Illegal Machine and Mister Fixit, so you might have thought that was that! In truth, Frank has continued to collect Patsy back issues and solicit suitors to discuss the humor strips that ran from 1944-1967! Now it's time to take the Centerville gals on "mystery dates" with some well-known podcast hosts from the Fire & Water Podcast Network! Excelsior!

Face Front, True Believer! Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man swings in for his, what, sixth international major motion picture release? Not counting the Italian one or the Japanese one or the TV shows that got repackaged as movies or any other random stuff? And this is the second reboot for a third proposed trilogy? Illegal Machine was so excited that he stayed home and let Pekita Trotamundos take his place alongside Diabolu Frank & Mister Fixit! Even with Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, Stan Lee and more making appearances? Boy, this one must really be something! And we've got the Mighty Marvel Mailbag, with Pekita playing Flo Steinberg (no subtitles, sorry)! Excelsior!

Face Front, True Believer! Fry-Hole returns to join Illegal Machine, Mister Fixit, & (oh, lord, "The Ruiner") Diabolu Frank to discuss (bash? ruin?) the heavily-anticipated sequel to one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's most beloved and surprising films, Guardians of the Galaxy! The episode is as long as the actual movie, so whether we love it or hate it, you're going to get maybe too much of us on this, however it shakes out! Excelsior!

Face Front, True Believer! Our attempts to record an episode on the Jessica Jones TV show from Netflix have been plagued by delays and technical difficulties, including only recording five minutes of an hour-long first try that mostly centered on co-hosts Illegal Machine and Diabolu Frank! We finally got a full length show "on tape," with a fired-up Mister Fixit besides, so sorry that the audio quality is like unto tin cans connected by string! First we give an overview of the history of Marvel Comics' adults-only MAX imprint, with special mentions for Punisher, Nick Fury, and... Rawhide Kid? Then we look at Alias, the three year long solo series where the super-heroine Jewel, A.K.A. Jessica Jones, made her debut (and which provided the source material for the television adaptation!) Finally, we get into the TV show itself, which trades Carol Danvers for Trish Walker as the star's bestie and emphasizes Luke Cage as her love interest (in his own live action debut!) Excelsior!

Face Front, True Believer! This week we return to Marvel's ex-Soviet super spy Natasha Romanoff for spotlight episode #2.5! After being an Iron Man villain and a Hawkeye femme fatale, the Black Widow hangs up her fishnets and goes ginger, donning a more film-familiar costume and gadgets to fight crime! Petty, prosaic, politically problematic street crime! And also your Friendly Neighborhood Web-Head, beginning in July 1970's The Amazing Spider-Man #86 by Stan Lee & John Romita! Then we continue to her first "solo" series (she was a glorified back-up for The Inhumans) in the bifurcated anthology Amazing Adventures #1-8 (1970-1971,) although we only synopsize the first three by Gary Friedrich (him again) and John Buscema! Beware the Black Widow's stinger! It's a knockout! Excelsior!

Face Front, True Believer! After a lengthy hiatus, we're back with two full hours of mediocrity (to be generous) and tedious statistical analysis of a mainstream media outlet's superficial understanding of the concept of super-heroes, too much of it coming from Frank! Illegal Machine tries to keep up enthusiasm as best he can, while Mister Fixit throws in the towel about halfway through! Look, our new mobile mixer had another cock-up and we lost our episode on Jessica Jones, so this is the best we could scrape together to salvage the night! Excelsior!
