Seth and Train are back to talk Free Comic Book Day Swag. Plus, rumors on the possible return of Agents Of SHIELD and reviews of Suicide Squad and Marvel’s “What If…?”

1:00 – Free Comic Book Day Swag

  • Avengers – An alternate Earth where Atlantis never fell and all the Avengers are Atlantean. Plus Hulk battles M.O.D.O.K. in his G.O.D.O.S. suit (Giant Organism Designed Only For Smashing). Basically M.O.D.O.K. is now a HeadMaster)
  • Spider-Man – Ben Reilly is a mercenary vs. Bushwacker. Plus King Eddie Brock in space
  • Star Wars: High Republic – The Edge of Balance – A Manga book

9:00 – Agents Of SHIELD Cast in Secret Invasion?

Chloe Bennet had to back out of The Powerpuff Girls reboot for CW. Then Elizabeth Henstridge shared an Instagram about traveling to England. As luck would have it, both of those actions fall in line with Marvel’s Secret Invasion beginning production for Disney+. Since Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury will be front and center, it makes sense that SHIELD agents would be backing him up. However, this is ONLY a rumor, and nothing has been confirmed

15:00 – The Suicide Squad Review

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad seems to have disappointed at the box office, but it did not fail to entertain. For what it’s worth, Warner Bros. movies will go back to be theater exclusive in 2022. For comparison’s sake, Train puts media consumption in the 1980s against media consumption of today. VCRs anybody?

Train brings his knowledge of DC to the table in this review. Where’s Ratcatcher from? Where’s Corto Maltese? And did DC heavy hitters actually fight a giant starfish?

45:45 – “What If…?” Review

Marvel’s latest (and first animated) entry into The MCU is “What If…?”. As expected, each episode is a standalone alternate story based on a previous MCU movie. The debut episode depicted Peggy Carter taking the super-soldier serum when Steve Rogers is wounded.

Rumored titles for future episodes

  1. Captain Carter
  2. T’Challa Star Lord
  3. Loki Invasion
  4. Doctor Strange Supreme
  5. Party Thor
  6. Killmonger and Tony
  7. Zombies
  8. Tony Stark in Sakaar
  9. Ultron, Vision, Infinity Stones and Guardians of the Multiverse
