Episode DescriptionEdit

In which Franklin Richards is definitely a normal human meat child; Thing’s code-name is delightfully ambiguous; your kids are probably robot sailors; it’s always a Doombot; Rachel accidentally identifies with Reed Richards; all dramatic roads lead to Latveria; and superheroes are terrible at conflict resolution.

Listener Questions Edit

  • Have Magneto and Dr. Doom ever interacted in continuity? I ask because Scarlet Witch and Doom seem to have some kind of relationship, and I'm not 100% on what the nature of that relationship is. Do they at least get together and compare capes maybe?
  • I forget what writer said it, but the writer made the argument that the X-Men was a school, Fantastic Four was the family, and The Avengers was a team, and that's what the stories should reflect. Do you still think that's true? Was it ever true?
