MTR Network

So here it is. Part One of our Rogue War Character Corners. First up, we talk about Batman's classic gallery of rogues. And when I say "talk" I really mean that. We put together 2 1/2 hours worth of discussion on the villains that oppose the Bat and even then we had to limit it to the most well known of the villains (Sorry, no Kite Man). We tried to break them out into categories to keep the flow going. Also, unlike previous Character Corners where we have a fairly linear list of comic book runs, I just listed out most of the books we discussed since there's a lot of jumping around.

  • Mobsters
    • Carmine Falcone
    • Sal Maroni
    • Penguin
    • Two-Face
  • Stone Cold Killers
    • Victor Zsasz
    • Deadshot
  • Monsters
    • Killer Croc
    • Clayface (Basil Karlo)
    • Solomon Gundy
    • Mr. Freeze
  • Psychological villains 
    • Hugo Strange
    • Scarecrow
  • Femme Fatales 
    • Poison Ivy
    • Catwoman
    • Harley Quinn
  • Strategists
    • Hush
    • Riddler
    • Bane
    • Ra’s Al Ghul
  • The Joker

The MTR Network sat down with Greg Burnham and Marcus Williams, the creators of a new comic launching in late July 2016, the Tuskegee Heirs.  Driven by a desire to provide representation for young Black people, they discuss the inspiration and purpose of the artwork, the reason for linking a new comic property to historical events, and the challenges in creating a campaign with a goal of creating an animated property.

HiroJa Shibe and The Doctor with another review of 12 Monkeys, Hyenas. Unfortunately this episode was a full-stop for us after last weeks magnificent episode, Lullaby. We also talk about the need for shows on television in general should have shorter seasons (13 episodes vs 22 episodes).

When Dpalm suggested we do Superboy for our next Character Corner, I was skeptical that we would be able to cover a whole show. Boy was I wrong. We ended up doing 90 minutes on Connor Kent and that's after condensing and skipping over a lot of things. This is only the beginning though since we clearly have to do a Teen Titans Character Corner now. Superboy is a really interesting DC character since its really easy to follow a linear progression for this character from his first appearance up to the New 52 (but as Dpalm says...don't read any New 52 Superboy...its bad). We also cover Superboy Prime because he's an important piece of Connor's story.

Issues:

  • Superman: Reign of Supermen
    • Adventures of Superman #500 - 1st Appearance
    • Adventures of Superman #501
    • Adventures of Superman #502
  • Superman: Return of Superman
    • Superman #81 - meets the real Superman for the first time
  • Superboy Volume 3
    • Issues #25-30 - Losing it Part 1- 6 Knockout betrays Superboy
    • Issue #59 - Superman brings Superboy into the House of El as Kon-El
    • Issue #74 - Tana Moon is killed
  • Young Justice (1998 - 2003)
  • Teen Titans Volume 3
    • Issue #1 - Finds out half his DNA is Lex Luthor
    • Issue #24 & 25 - Lex "activates" Superboy and Connor takes out the Teen Titans
    • Issue #26 - Raven tells Connor he has a Soul
    • Issue  #32 - vs Superboy Prime
    • Issue #33 - Teams up with Night Wing
  • Superboy Prime Issues
    • Crisis on Infinite Earths
    • Infinite Crisis Secret Files & Origins - Superboy Prime changes the DC Universe by beating on reality
    • Infinite Crisis #6 - Connor dies stopping Superboy Prime
  • Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds 1 - 5 - Bart & Connor return & stop Superboy Prime in the Future
  • Superboy: The Boy of Steel
    • Adventure Comics 504, 505, 506, 508 & 509

Kriss & Phenom review Now You See Me 2. Unfortunately this film is an even bigger waste of talent than the first film. They do less of what made the first film an interesting concept and instead try to go Ocean's 12 while also jacking the villain's plot from a Bond movie. It's just not good.

This is a special Insanity Check. We were at Awesome Con this weekend and had our panel: Nostalgia's a...Trips Down Memory Lane Too. It was a huge success. We were in a larger room than last year but still packed the room. Thank you to all the fans who came out and supported us at the panel and those who came to Penn Social. None of this would be possible without you all. Later this week I should have the entire video up so stay tune.  

Special Thanks:

Phenom & Kriss review Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. I mean...you already know what it is. It's not like you actually thought this would be a good movie even if you are entertained by it. We deserve better but the studios will keep making this garbage.

We cover another X-Man villain turned...good? This time we cover Magneto, the greatest enemy of the X-Men. Magneto has a very interesting arc as a villain. He starts off as the perfect antithesis to Professor Xavier. He starts with the simple idea of "never again" will he allow his people to be slaughtered to believing he's the messiah for mutant kind to dealing with the guilt when he fails. Kriss once again finds himself defending some of the more awful crimes Magneto commits but maybe once you finish listening you'll be agreeing that Magneto was right too.

There's a LOT of issues involving Magneto. Below I just list some of the ones we talked about but there's plenty more. Marvel Unlimited is your friend. A great place to start is Cullen Bunn's 2014 Magneto solo series as it ends up covering a lot of Magneto's history as well.

Issues:

  • X-Men #1- First appearance
  • Classic X-Men #12 - Magneto's origin
  • Magneto's Children
    • Vision and Scarlet Witch vol 1 #4 - learns he is the father of Wanda & Pietro
    • New X-Men #132 - Revealed that Polaris is Magneto's daughter
  • X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills
  • X-Men #200 - Trial of Magneto
  • X-Men #1 - 3
  • Fatal Attraction
    • X-Factor #92
    • X-Force #25 - Magneto nearly rips Cable apart
    • Uncanny X-Men #304
    • X-Men #25 - Magneto rips the adamantium out of Logan's body, Xavier wipes Magneto's mind
  • House of M #1 - 8
  • New X-Men #115 - Genosha is wiped out
  • New X-Men #146 - 150 - Planet X/Xorn as Magneto
  • House of M #1 - 8
  • Nation X
    • Uncanny X-Men #516 - Magneto pledges himself to Cyclops 
    • Uncanny X-Men #521 & 522 - Magneto proves himself to the X-Men by bringing Kitty Pryde home
  • Magneto solo series by Cullen Bunn
