Our earliest superhero media
Growing up super
We continue our hiatus between shows filled with freeform topics. This week, we discuss the superhero media that we grew up with—TV shows, movies, comics, even books!—and how it shaped our involvement with the genre. Then, a brief Superhero Sweep touches on the new new Suicide Squad movie, and in our Letters Page we transplant a Star Trek episode into the superhero genre.
If you’re looking for a way to support the show, have you considered a lovely shirt?
