For your 28th unpaid advertisement-laden visit to the Non-Stop Comic Shop, Jordan begins with a trio of unfortunate apologies before reviewing Avengers #59-60, an infamous slice of the Silver Age that suggested that Hank “OG Ant-Man” Pym’s relationship to Janet “OG Wasp” van Dyne may have had some unhealthy qualities from the start. After the break, the boys talk about the newest MCU movie “Ant-Man and the Wasp”, of which Jordan finds the structure hilarious and the narrative unsatisfying. Along the journey, you will learn: What was Hawkeye’s long forgotten catchphrase? Who won the pop-culture reference battle between Hulk Hogan and Monty Python? What evidence did Brendan find that proves Black Widow has been dead for 50 years? Does having a character named Ghost justify ripping off a scene from the movie Ghost? What exciting new element does Walton Goggins add to the “black SUV chase” trope? How dark can our rants about the passing of Steve Ditko and the firing of James Gunn get? And does anyone know how to spell “fiancee”? #TheyreCuriouslyStrong
