"Avengers: Infinity War" is like the Super Bowl: either you saw it, or you consciously opted to miss America's latest biggest cultural event. But football is niche compared to MARVEL MOVIES. They're the biggest pillar of global entertainment, made by skilled professionals doing their very best work, and here's the weird fun thing about all that: the comic books themselves started weird, got weirder, and stayed baffling throughout our modern day.
On this week's episode of The Cracked Podcast, Alex Schmidt is joined by Cracked editor Cyriaque Lamar for a journey through decades of comic book insanity. Find out how Marvel, DC, and independent publishers have cranked out almost a century of baffling storylines and irresponsible canon changes, even as those same characters have conquered TV and film. And go out into your world knowing you live on a planet that once featured Werewolf Captain America, Badminton Champion Batman, and a friendly neighborhood Planned Parenthood Spider-Man.
Join us for our next LIVE Cracked Podcast! It's happening Saturday, June 9th at 7pm at UCB Sunset in Los Angeles. Tickets available soon, mark your calendars now.
