Episode 9: Akira, Ghost in the Shell, and Miyazaki

PS: I’m no longer calling them the ‘alt-right’, fuck these people. They are Nazis. Period. That’s what they are, white-supremisits with a new name, so I’m not going to use it any longer.

Episode 8: Superheroes and Politics

This week, of all weeks, it’s Superheroes and Politics. We go over multiple properties and their political leanings and the political ideologies behind supers in general. Hey, it’s a bit of an antidote to the shit-storm of the American election. 😉

Aliens: 1986 vs Die Hard: 1988
Mephisto doesn’t have horns or a tail and DD and Mephisto met up during Inferno (I also said Fall of the Mutants which was before Inferno and gots nuthin’ to do with Mephisto.)
