As we await the fall debut of a myriad of superhero shows, the newly dubbed Super Squad takes this week as an opportunity for a giant-sized Superhero Sweep segment, discussing the recent resolution of Spider-Man in the MCU, casting for Crisis on Infinite Earths, and news of an upcoming Arrow spin-off. Then we answer a letter about some fantasy casting, and indulge in a lively debate about the pronunciation of everybody’s favorite jerk superhero.
If you’re looking for a way to support the show, have you considered a lovely shirt?

We convene our Comic Book Club not to talk about a specific comic, but more generally the plight of the comic-book reader when it comes to events and continuity. Marvel and DC are both in the process of revisiting and changing their continuity via dramatic in-universe events. Is continuity worth the trouble? Are events fun, or soul-crushing? How do we feel about the old and new Marvel Secret Wars? Does the new all-woman Avengers team fill us with excitement or trepidation or both? And stick around after the show as we discuss Superman’s new power, the appeal of Harley Quinn, and even more comic nerdery!
Comic Book Club returns with a discussion of comic-book “special events,” and why they are (in most cases) amazingly disappointing. We discuss our favorite and least-favorite events, from Crisis on Infinite Earths to Civil War to that time that Superman fought Spider-Man.
