Face Front, True Believer! After a lengthy hiatus, we’re back with two full hours of mediocrity (to be generous) and tedious statistical analysis of a mainstream media outlet’s superficial understanding of the concept of super-heroes, too much of it coming from Frank! Illegal Machine tries to keep up enthusiasm as best he can, while Mister Fixit throws in the towel about halfway through! Look, our new mobile mixer had another cock-up and we lost our episode on Jessica Jones, so this is the best we could scrape together to salvage the night! Excelsior!

The DC Bloodlines Podcast: You May Call Me Doctor Mist!


Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or the Internet Archive, where you can also directly download an art-tagged MP3.

The ancient immortal African mystic Doctor Mist was introduced in a cameo on the last page of 1978’s The Super Friends #12 before continuing into appearances in The Super Friends #13 & 45-46 before officially forming the Global Guardians in DC Comics Presents #46. We cover these comics to varying degrees, but our primary focus is the supposed true story of “Nommo,” appended to tales starring Zatara and Zatanna. Is Dr. Mist one of the most powerful and important figures in the history of the DC Universe, or a sad and lonely fraud? You decide, and you can follow along with our reading of 1988’s Secret Origins #27 at The Secret Origins Podcast.

The Mystery of Nubia

Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or the Internet Archive, where you can also directly download an art-tagged MP3.

By all indications, 2017 needs a podcast dedicated to Queen Hippolyta’s “second,” “other,” “dark” daughter who debuted on November 7, 1972 in Wonder Woman #204, so we’re “Introducing Nubia!” The soul sister of the Amazing Amazon went on to appearances in Wonder Woman #205-206, including a solo back-up story, plus cameos in Supergirl #9 and The Super Friends #25 before vanishing from comics entirely for twenty years (and actually closer to a quarter century if you discount a single page of one of those comics.) Despite barely escaping 1973 in comics, Nubia managed to make appearances on television and in toy form when that was an extremely rare accomplishment, and her origin has a massive impact on Wonder Woman’s own. Nubia was a contender, and we argue that she still matters 45 years later on this episode!

Nubia is one of the least heralded but most valuable creations of Robert Kanigher, and possibly his single most important contribution across twenty years as a writer/editor of the Amazing Amazon (depending on how much credit you extend him on Wonder Girl.) The world is still waiting for Nubia to be fully embraced as a key component of Amazonian lore! For more on Nubia, check out my 2012 article on her, newly revised with fresh scans to replace the busted embeds Comicvine left me with.

The DC Bloodlines Podcast: The Green Fury meets The Super Friends


Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or the Internet Archive, where you can also directly download an art-tagged MP3.

After slipping to an unintentional monthly schedule with some uncomfortable elements and unfortunate timing, the DC Bloodlines Podcast returns for a thirteenth episode set on breaking its unlucky streak (and nearly broke Diabolu Frank with all the editing it required.) In this novel edition, special guest Pekita Trotamundos helps produce a two-person radio drama in the style of ABC-TV’s 1979 Saturday morning favorite, The World’s Greatest Super Friends. This is meant to reflect the early appearances of Brazil’s premier super-heroine in the DC Universe, Beatriz da Costa, originally known as The Green Fury! Later known as Fire, she was created by E. Nelson Bridwell and Ramona Fradon for the comic book tie-in Super Friends #25, cover-dated October, 1979. After that brief cameo battling Superman, The Green Fury went on to appear in issues #42-44, with her origin finally revealed in a full length starring role in the series’ final issue, the August 1981 cover-dated #47. Foregoing the usually biting commentary and contemporary music soundtrack, this episode is a loose adaptation of these stories featuring scores culled from numerous cartoon favorites of the era. However, there is a political subtext that’s hard to miss. For a peek at the early Beatriz da Costa in action, here’s a look at sample pages from The Super Friends #43 at Scans_Daily.
