Non-Stop Comic Shop #10: Beleaguered

 

For your tenth visit to the Non-Stop Comic Shop, the boys balance the scales with a comparative look at how the big and small screens both handled the coming together of the Justice League. First up, on the “Secret Origins” episode of the Justice League animated TV show, a foolish attempt to redo the plot of Superman IV: the Quest for Peace invites a highly derivative alien invasion. Can Batman, Superman, the guy WAY more powerful than Superman, and four other guys who just showed up out of nowhere (two of whom are basically Klingons) save the series until it gets to it’s far better second season? Then, in the theatrical Snyder-Whedon joint, cinema’s blandest villain is leading a highly derivative alien invasion. Can Batman, Wonder Woman, plastic upper lipped-Superman, and three other guys who just showed up out of nowhere (who weirdly have colorful costumes, senses of humor, and a desire to prevent civilian casualties) save the DCEU until it gets a second good movie?

Take a gander at our previous show here!

Jordan has been creating geeky Internet media for about 8 years now, starting with his late lamented video review show, Geek Criteek. He's since found his calling as a podcaster and video game live-streamer, hosting and editing over 100 episodes of each. An avid fan of D&D, MST3K, the PS4 and the MCU, he isn't sure which is his prouder achievement: that he framed one episode of the Non-Stop Comic Shop by singing the plot of Thor Ragnarok to the tune of a Steve Miller song, or that during that very song he was able to come up with a rhyme for "Devil's Anus".
