Face Front, True Believers! As much as it may seem like we’ve become The Marvel Comics Super Special Podcast, movies are actually supposed to be a secondary concern to the actual comic books, so we decided to do a nigh-Lady Daemon level deep dive for an anti-heroine with close ties to cult rituals who debuted in a black and white magazine and was often written by pre-fame Chris Claremont! Presenting Satana Hellstrom, Sister of the Son of Satan! We look at her early stories from before she landed in the first ever Handbook of the Dead and then go down a rabbit hole cut into the bottom of the Mighty Marvel Mail Bag! Since we only gave Satana the first half hour, we bothered to pull together a tumblr gallery for the first time since our Doctor Strange episodes! Excelsior?

Face Front, True Believers! Frank finally finished editing and releasing our coverage of the third; no sixth… Wait, do the solo movies count, since Origins had the team name in the title? Ah screw it most recent flick in the too long running X-Men franchise just a fortnight after its not-especially-anticipated release! And by “we” meaning a show run by Mr. Fixit while Frank lies passively on his back, nearly pulling a Fixit by almost dosing off several times and (speaking of releases) farting loudly and moistly following a full day of convention going and Mediterranean buffet gorging without Mac, who abstained from this outing! Also, Frank kept rolling around on the floor, bumping into the laptop and once accidentally shutting down the recording, making Fixit paranoid for the rest of the session! We’re in the same room, but you’ll swear it was a Skype session the way we phone it in at four in the morning! Also, Fixit’s recording panics, hiccups (one literal) and Frank’s bowel sounds are mostly edited out, which is more than we can say for the sprawling bloat of Bryan Singer’s latest, possibly last, arguably lamest outing with Marvel”s” mutants! Excelsior?

JLA: Day Zero (1994)

The Manhunter from Mars offers a final supplemental postscript to JLMay– The JLA: Year One Podcast Crossover Event! Think of it as JuneLA, or maybe a JLMepilogue. In the third edition of JLA: Day One, Diabolu Frank discusses the controversial Zero Hour retcon of Triumph as a founding member of the Justice League, alongside the Post-Crisis Five and Superman, in Justice League America #92 (September, 1994)! Just keep telling yourself it never happened, because it never did, right from the beginning! In fact, that was kind of the whole point! Bookending that topic are excerpts from Chase #6 (July, 1998) and Martian Manhunter #17 (April, 2000) covering the retroactive continuity predecessors to the JLA, the Justice Experience and their mysterious member Bronze Wraith…
