Special guest Scott Meridew, writer and list hero at A Place To Hang Your Cape, hates D.C. Comics! The Jock and Nerd love that! Anthony and Imran try to get to the root of Scott’s hate, and discuss why Marvel is better than D.C., stupid superhero names, The Flash, Arrow, the new D.C. workplace comedy, more fallout from the Fantastic Four, an audio comment form Rugboy, the D23 Expo, British Godzilla, and more!
