MSP#144: The Blackest Night Podcast (Part 1)


Blackest Night Podcast

In this issue: we’re down a man, but we still soldier on, just like the Five Doctors… (Does this mean Rodrigo is Tom Baker?) Could the foul-mouthed kid from the Bad News Bears really have a head that’s sufficiently gourd-like? We need you to nerd the hell out, then send us pictures… If you don’t Stephen will read some of his poetry. Plus: Is it just a coincidence that Corps is one letter from Corpse? Tim Drake wants a speckled lemonade and some bottomless steak fries! And the robot overlord decrees a change in the running order, and you MUSTOBEY ROBOT OVERLORD, or risk being marked as not one with Landru… Please lock your seatbacks and tray tables and return the stewardess to her original upright position, as the major spoilers podcast is on the air.

“Council of Spiders,” Part 1 of 4! Ra’s al Ghul goes from hunter to hunted! What is the Council of Spiders, why have they been killing assassins, and who is the Wanderer? After the death of Red Robin last issue, the League of Assassins now must – wait, WHAT? Everything shifts into insane overdrive as the daughter of Wayne Enterprises CEO Lucius Fox completes her quest to find Red Robin, only to get caught up in one of the deadliest games on the face of the planet.

Leave it up to a fan to ask Ryan Ottley for a commission of Invincible and Superboy Prime fighting.  It’s a cool concept and one we are happy to life for our own nefarious deeds.  So, we ask you, the Legion of Major Spoilerites, in a battle, who would win, Invincible or Superboy Prime?
Superboy Prime
