Kriss and Dpalm are back for the second part of our Heroes for Hire Character Corner. You can find Part 1 here.

In this part, we talk about Danny Rand, Iron Fist, and the badass Samurai, Colleen Wing. We start right away addressing the elephant in the room: The cultural appropriation/white washing with Danny Rand and Asian culture. Yes, Danny should have been Asian American. Period.  With that out of the way, we go through some of the early years with Danny which are pretty well done and build a pretty good story. It also introduces us to Colleen Wing and how much of a badass she is. We end with Fraction/Brubaker's Immortal Iron Fist run & the new The Living Weapon run

He's the best there is at what he does and what he does isn't very nice. Our massive Character Corner on the X-Man named Wolverine.

Normally the first Insanity Check back from a break would be a long episode and with everything going on in Trump's America, you'd think so. But just the opposite here. With everything going on we kinda wanted to do a shorter less structured show because...well, everything has just been so much.

First Character Corner of 2017 is here! Kriss and Dpalm start the year off talking about Piotr Rasputin (Colossus) and Kitty Pryde (Shadowcat). We start with Giant Size X-Men #1 that gives us our first introduction of Colossus along with a bunch of other fan favorites like Storm & Nightcrawler and the second full appearance of Wolverine. We then go through the Claremont years and discuss then the introduction of Kitty Pryde and why the character is so important. The relationship between Peter and Kitty is a bit weird because of their ages but it develops into something less creepy.  This Character Corner also was a great excuse for us to re-read Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men run which at its core is a Colossus/Shadowcat story. Along the way we geek out over how much we love the X-Men growing up and the potentials for doing Wolverine and Cyclops Character Corners.  
 
We talked for almost 2 hours and still cut out a lot, so give this a listen and let us know what you think
