UPDATE:Â There’s an audio error due to editing, where Matthew is out of sync for the first 45 minutes of the show.Â I won’t be able to fix this until later tonight, when I’m done with my video work.
This time around, we lament the loss of a new imprint, some old friends, and Stephenâ€™s patience. Meanwhile, Rodrigoâ€™s in the timestream, Stephenâ€™s in Free Fall, and Matthewâ€™s in Tower City, while Skrull Bryan decides that if he canâ€™t take over the world, heâ€™ll at least be the lord of Bogeyâ€™s drive-inâ€¦ Plus: we know your mama dresses you funny, so why not win sompin for wearing a funny suit? Itâ€™s all this and Cellblock Four as Major Spoilers provides the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything!

An international space race ensues when an asteroid containing enough precious metals to shift the balance of power on Earth is detected on a path through our solar system. When the U.S. Team arrives on the asteroid, they discover the remains of an abandoned alien mining camp. But when the U.S. ship is sabotaged and crew members go missing, it becomes clear they’re not alone on the asteroid. Stranded, the remaining crew members must band together to survive the monstrous inhabitants on the asteroid, find a way off the rock and save Earth which now sits directly in the path of destruction. In the process, they discover a deep dark secret contained within the asteroid. It holds the key to both their destruction and to their salvation. But unearthing it will change the fate of humanity forever.

Home to beautiful white sandy shores, crystal-blue waters… and the world’s most dangerous maximum-security penitentiary. For 185 of the world’s most dangerous super-powered criminals, it is their final home. They will reside within these walls until their sentence is served… or they meet their end. There are no escapes. There are no bargains or compromises. There is only San Tiburon.
