Non-Stop Comic Shop #23: Nothing Can Kill the Grimace

(Please be advised: This is a two-part episode.  Both halves are posted above)

For your epic double-length 23rd visit to the Non-Stop Comic Shop, we roll out our long-awaited reviews of two very different Avengers movies. First up, it’s Ultimate Avengers: the Movie from 2006. While it failed to both properly adapt the famed Ultimates comic arc and launch a pre-MCU connected cinematic universe, it almost made up for it with goofy walking cycles, sultry pep talks, adorable goth metal couples, lazy alien Nazis, and unforgivable spelling errors. After the break, the boys and long-time friend Carly assemble to report on Avengers: Infinity War, the MCU movie that you only need to see about 15 of the previous 18 MCU movies in order to understand. So join us as we ask the tough questions like: Why does the opening remind us of that really old movie, Alien 3? Why does Science Bros + Magic Bros = Sherlock Bros? Why are all of our Facebook friends brushing up on Malthusian economics? Why does Brendan keep calling the villain “Thanatos”? Why is Shuri the undisputed expert on multi-modal reflection sorting? Why is Gamora? And why WAS Gamora? #ExcelsioT

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".
