  1. Oh god I didn’t know what to think of this because I generally hate these conversations, but this podcast turned out to be a lot of fun.

    I fully agree with Chris Simms re: ninjas.


    Snake-Eyes would send Wolverine and Batman home crying, too. YES I SAID IT.

    (Also, I have to disagree re: Rocket Raccoon vs. Darkseid, because Rocket winning that fight is unarguably the more satisfying outcome.)

  2. I’m surprised the “Who Would Win in a Fight” conversation didn’t end with Squirrel Girl. She is unbeatable, after all.

    I’ll admit that I was a bit skeptical about the idea of a massive podcast crossover event, but I enjoyed this first episode a lot! I can’t wait to see where T̶h̶e̶ ̶d̶i̶s̶e̶m̶b̶o̶d̶i̶e̶d̶ ̶v̶o̶i̶c̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶G̶r̶e̶g̶ ̶R̶u̶c̶k̶a̶ The Beyonder teleports y’all next.

  3. Hmm, I think my only issue with the outcome of the “Thor Vs Storm” one is a matter of the physical damage that would be required to hurt Thor, like… at all.

    Storm is smart, a street fighter and ruthless in combat, no question, but honestly, what CAN she do physically to Thor, an immortal Asgardian who frequently trades blows with Hercules and the Hulk without blinking and who can have buildings collapse on him without really slowing him down. She can hit him a hundred times, but frankly I doubt he’d feel any of them.

    His command of the weather is as strong, or stronger, than Storm’s, though she might more varied (especially if Claremont is writing her with her rather over the top “can create a Jovian air pressure level hurricane on Earth” or “blasts of near absolute zero cold”, neither of which seem to be part of her usual power levels).

    Unless she manages to get hold of an Asgardian dagger (and lord knows Storm is capable of doing so) and works out a way to apply it with sufficient force to get through his skin, but otherwise, the first punch Thor connects with her, it’s pretty much over for Storm.

    She might win, but it certainly wouldn’t be the open and shut case the podcast sort of hints at.

    …andrereading that, I’m reminded that my ability to obsess over such things at short notice is _exactly_ why I consciously avoid such discussions in comic shops. 🙂

  4. Entertaining.

    I’m disappointed that, in true superhero crossover fashion, you all didn’t immediately fight each other before realizing you are all on the same side.
