CM Podcast 92 – Controversial Stories

Welcome back, CM Podcast fans.  Jon and I both have this cold that’s been going around so we apologize in advance for the coughs and hope to be back to 100% next week.

I have been reading Nick Spencer’s Steve Rogers: Captain America and really have been enjoying it.  It is a controversial story because it has Cap as an Agent of Hydra instead of the Sentinel of Liberty.  Time will tell if this will go down as a great story or terrible idea in the annals of history.

This gave me the idea to talk about 3 other controversial stories and how people reacted to them.  In this podcast, we review the following:

  1. Identity Crisis (2004)
  2. Ed Brubaker’s Captain America (2005)
  3. The new 52 Launch (2011)

Also, In the podcast Jon speaks to the criticism that DC received on their female characters in the new universe.  To give you a visual on how women were portrayed in the new 52 here are 3 examples (left to right): Catwoman, Starfire and Voodoo.

As always, thanks for listening.

You comics pal,

Jim
