Episode 11 part 1, wherein our hosts initiate a group activity.It's summer time and it's a beautiful time to be a comic book fan. We've got films starring Batman, Spider-man, Rawhide Kid ... they aren't making that movie? Oh, they are, but it's only available on hotel pay channels? Shame. Anyway, the Avengers film kicked off the season with a bang, so we're here to cash in. Originally the Avengers were slated to fight the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, but it's next to impossible to find the original MMPR movie on anything except VHS, so we had to settle for the next best thing: The Justice League (Of America) (sometimes.)The movie Avengers (Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow) are represented by Peat Ski, who not only saw the movie twice but got so upset when it was over that he tried to jump into traffic rather than wait for the sequel. Fortunately, some kid knocked him out of the way just as a speeding truck full of nuclear waste was coming. Unfortunately, the kid was killed on impact and Peat will never be friends with Daredevil.Pyg has chosen a variation of the Justice League featured in the original animated series. He's using Wonder Woman, Batman, the Flash, Green Lantern (John Stewart), Hawkgirl and the Martian Manhunter. It's truly a murderer's row of heroes, all with impressive powers and impractical costumes. But unless someone picks up our Martian Manhunter spec script (J'onn Carter of Mars...too soon?), only one of them will have a movie that grosses a billion dollars.Avengers vs. Justice League ... it's happened in the comics (sorta), but this will settle it once and for all.This episode is so big and epic that we had to split it into two episodes. Even after that, there was still material that didn't make the cut, so expect a bonus episode in the near future. Part 2 will be available in two weeks.Read more »
