It’s July and the start of big blockbuster movie season.  This year, Marvel and Disney release Spider-Man: Homecoming which welcomes Peter Parker into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Jon and I were determined to see this movie come Hell or high water!  We had several road blocks which we describe in the podcast but we finally were able to see it and boy, did we like it!

We do a breakdown of the movie: Tom Holland’s performance, his high school co-stars and the motivation of the villain, Vulture.  We also share some Easter Eggs from the movie.  Very few spoilers in this podcast.

Once of the things we both agree on, The Scorpion from the Stan Lee and Steve Ditko Amazing Spider-Man comic run did not look like a scorpion…

I say he looks kind of like a green squirrel man.  It was just an odd costume design.

Listen to the podcast to find out why we even begin to talk about the Scorpio.

CM Podcast 85 – Civil War II

Happy New Year, folks!  Welcome to 2017 and I hope it is a peaceful and prosperous year for you.

We are back talking comics this week and the item on the table tonight is Civil War II or as I like to call it Civil Wat The Sequel.  Jon and I have a lively and frank discussion on the story and it’s impact in the Marvel Universe.

There will be **spoilers** so if you have not read it (and think that you may want to read it in the near future) then go read it and come back once you are done.

We will answer the question:

civil_war_2

Is Civil Wat II a battle between differing ideology of heroes on the concepts of fate and free will that at the conclusion of the series, the impacts of our heroes’ actions will be felt by the Marvel Universe for years to come?

OR

civil_war_ii

Is Civil War II just a cash grab based on a popular miniseries?

Listen to the podcast and find out.  Also, we mention that we were going to talk about Marvel’s other miniseries Death of X (and we were!  Honest!) but we go so caught up in talking about Civil War Dos that we ran out of time.  We will talk about Death of X next week.

Your Comics Pal,

Jim
