  1. Episode one down. Being the knowledgable comics fan I thought I was guys got me on the Namor cartoon. Literally had never seen this before! Looked like I missed nothing..the clip was terrible. One thing for sure Namor does not make great comics or cartoons ..but you guys managed a great podcast on him. Go figure.

    Fun episode guys. I am marching on to episode two!!

    Hero Out!
