“Impostors” continues here! Madness and mayhem face off against law and order for control of Gotham City, and not even the Batman is safe! With The Joker Impostor leading the charge of chaos and filling the streets of Gotham with his army of Jokerz, the ranks of the Batman Impostor’s army grow thanks to regular citizens choosing sides and taking up arms. But what is Impostor Joker’s ultimate goal – and what does it have to do with the real Dark Knight and Clown Prince of Crime?

    Bettie Page! Bettie Page! Riding through my head!

    Bettie Page! Bettie Page! Man, she’s a lovely woman.

    I know that doesn’t rhyme.

    Your shows are gold lately. By the way I took Stephens advice last show and finaly saw Hancock last night. That movie didn’t make any sence at all???

      I never said it was good, or that it made sense, only that Matthew should watch it to see how H’wood has dealt with a more down to Earth Superman figure in the past :D

        Oh I completely got what you meant. And I rather enjoyed it as a matter a fact. Only the part about the 3 thugs that somehow knew how to hurt Hancock i didn’t get at all. Where they some sort of fallen angles or what???

        Lost me. But the more-human-not-so-powerfull “superman” kind of hero I really liked. The feelings you expressed about not being able to relate to the big S in the last podcast – I can tottaly get behind that.

    Another great show, and I am not being biased due to my vocal cameo.

    The Asset does really sound like a fallguy, just to prop up the competition by default. I have only read one of these Pilot season books, and they just don’t seem to be my cup of tea.

    Here you go Matthew…

    Bettie Bettie in my mind
    Bettie Page all the time
    Your beauty is all I find
    When I conjure this loving rhyme…

    May Bettie rest in peace.

    Ah, this brings back memories. The Rocketeer movie came out when I was 11, and it was the first movie I ever saw at the local drive-in. At the time, I had never read any comic books, but I remember really liking the movie on that giant screen. I should watch the movie again as an adult, and see what I think now.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
