This week's episode is part two of our conversation about Sean Gordon Murphy's Elseworld title: White Knight, with friend of the show Caitlin Rosberg! You can find the first part here.  We delve into what worked, what didn't work, and what does the future hold for this incarnation of the Dark Knight.

Feature #1:  Our Favorite Asian Superheroes (or Villains) in Comics

Feature #1.5: “Lost and forgotten” Asian superheroes

 

Feature #2: Our favorite Asian Superheroes in Film and TV

May 24, 2018

Hey ACC-tion heroes! This week, Tim and Nick ask each other three insightful questions. Come for the questions, stay for the amazing answers!

 

Feature 1 - Three Questions

We each ask each other three questions.

Nick to Tim

  1. What insights would an Asian-American bring to the shield if, like Sam Wilson, they took the mantle of Captain America for a while?
  2. If you were a wrestling promoter in the DC Universe, who would you recruit?  No, you can’t cross-over Ben Grimm.
  3. We talk a lot about how heroes (and sometimes villains) have helped us understand ourselves.  Has a hero (or villain) ever helped you understand someone ELSE?

 

Tim to Nick

  1. Generally speaking, what limits you from reading comics? Not a critique, but a genuine curiosity.
  2. If you were tapped to write for a book, which one would you want to tackle?
  3. Comic book movies obviously pull source material from comics, but increasingly we are seeing movies affect the content of comics. (Example: Drax’s redesign), do you think this is a positive trend, negative, or neutral?

 

Feature 2 - Pullbox

 

  • Nick: Future Guys of Tomorrow
