MTR Network (entertainment)

Dpalm is joined once again by James Roberts, author of IDW's critically acclaimed Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye comic series. On the heels of smashing final issue, Mr. Roberts is on hand to talk about working with editors and corporate, talk about introducing a brand new cast for fans to love, and walks us through all of Season 2. We even get a sneak peek of what lies ahead as Roberts previews the (presumed )return of Rodimus and crew to our comic shelves in Lost Light 1, available everywhere in December.

This is a different Insanity Check than usual. Kriss & Dpalm address the shocking 2016 Election results and who is really to blame. Some folks might not like what they have to say but this is a real episode that  draws a line in the sand between People of Color and who is really to blame for electing a bigoted, White Nationalist endorsed by the KKK.

This Character Corner we take a trip to the mystical side of the Marvel Universe and talk about Doctor Stephen Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme. With Doctor Strange making his live action debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we thought it wise to give a break down of the character and some essential reading. We start off with his origins and discuss Strange's ethnicity as well as some of the problematic issues at the base of the character. Dpalm talks about some of his issues with early appearances of Doctor Strange and how the more modern takes address some of those issues and make the character more interesting. We also discuss the trade paperback, Doctor Strange & Doctor Doom: Triumph & Torment and how it's not only great insight into both the characters of Strange and Doom but also a good starting point before getting into Hickman's New Avengers & Secret Wars. Give the episode a listen and let us know what you think.

Well, you can thank Donald Trump being horrible for this. Kriss and Dpalm have an "emergency" Insanity Check where they discuss Donald Trump's campaign falling apart, the latest debate (if we can call it that) and what to expect going forward.

It's time for another Character CornerLuke Cage debuts on Netflix this Friday. Misty Knight will also make her live action debut in that 13 episode series. We decided that this is going to be Part 1 of our Heroes for Hire series as its hard to talk about Luke Cage and Misty Knight without Danny Rand (Iron Fist) and Colleen Wing. So we'll definitely be talking more about Cage & Knight when we do Iron Fist/Colleen Wing next year, but we start you off with the essentials. Luke & Misty are both African-American characters that come from the blaxploitation era of Marvel but have become solid characters that are so much more than that. Luke Cage's origin story still holds up pretty well and is very relevant in today's climate. Misty Knight has never had her own solo book, but she's been central in several series. Give this episode a listen and check out the reading list. Most issues are on Marvel Unlimited.
Luke Cage:

  • Luke Cage Hero For Hire
    • Issue #1 - First Appearance
    • Issues #8-9 - Beats up Doctor Doom for $200
  • Power Man Volume 1 #48-49 - Meets Danny, Misty & Colleen for the first time & clears his name
  • Power Man and Iron Fist Volume 1 - Starts at #50 picks up from #49 with Luke's name being cleared and teaming up with Danny
  • Relationship with Jessica Jones
    • Alias
    • The Pluse
  • New Avengers (2004) - Bendis Run
    • New Avengers Annual #1 - Wedding between Luke & Jessica
    • Issue #22 - Civil War Tie-In. Refuses to sign & joins Cap
    • Issue #47 - The story of when he fell for Jessica
  • Mighty Avengers
  • Power Man and Iron First (Current David Walker Run)

Misty Knight
