  1. It never occurred to me that Falcon’s outfit looks a bit like that of a wrestler, but I can see it! He could even have the bird as a masoct, like Coca B Ware (I think that was his name) with the look of the Ultimate Warrior somewhat!

    I think Anthony Mackie said he’d be down to wear the classic comic costume, and I would love to see it. They definitely added the red later to tie it into the classic look. The less said about the comic’s original orange and green suit the better. Only Aquaman can work that combo.

    I never cared for the “Snap” Wilson retcon. It seemed to play into black stereotypes, casting the formerly good-natured Sam as a one-time pimp (or pimp-like hoodlum). Once again the movies trump the comics, giving us a Falcon who was a solider helping soldiers deal with PTSD and other post-combat problems.

    Speaking of the movies, its’ so weird to think of Thanos as just being some dead head-shot when he’s currently THE epitome of all things bad at Marvel.

    Fun show as always ladies (and Siskoid)!

  2. Good job on the episode, everyone! I enjoyed the takes on these entries. To me, most of these are not well known as I haven’t read many books that they have appeared in so I think I agree with most of the ladies on these. I don’t have the lens of nostalgia to distort my feelings *cough*Electro’s cool*cough*.

    The most I got out of the Enforcers was that Fancy Dan had sleazy hands. Also, the hands, if uncurled, look like they would be larger than his head, perhaps? Sleazy, indeed. I’m sure he beat Spider-Man by merely grossing him out.

    Sprite looks like Teller from Penn and Teller. I don’t get the Eternals.

    Bad joke alert! Dating Eternity would be a long term relationship. End of alert.

    Lastly, Falcon’s “wing” motif on his abs look like antlers to me so it looks like he’s smuggling a reindeer in his pants.

    Keep up the great work!

  3. The Eternals seems like Kirby’s less effective Marvel riff on the Fourth world. As such, I’d wonder if Siskoid can take a side visit on one of the anniversary shows comparing the Eternals to the New Gods and asking which group is hotter. (Big Barda for the win.)

    That said, now all I can picture is Ajax on his knees cleaning the toilet. In fact, the poofy thing on the front of his helmet could be a toilet brush!

  4. Another fun episode!

    Agree with the comment that the Enforcers seem like they came out of a ’30s movie…even when they were created in the 1960s, there was a definite old-school sensibility to them. And what was old-school in the 1960s is…well, I guess “ancient history” is the most appropriate phrase for today. But that’s why I like them so much.

    Eternals: It speaks volumes about Jack Kirby’s sense of design that even the throwaway background characters are so visually interesting. I, too, want to know more about that woman in the pink/purple outfit in the crowd shot!

    The comments about Ajak made me think of Eddie Izzard’s routine about the Trojan War: “Agamemnon, famous warrior! Ajax, famous toilet cleaner!”

    I’m kind of surprised that the Falcon entry didn’t include a shot of his original costume…but perhaps it’s lucky that the ladies didn’t see that. Of course, there’s always the future episode where you’ll review the characters’ other looks.

  5. Love this show. Entertaining even when one finds oneself in Stockton Ca. Trust me you have to work harder to amuse me when I’m here. You guys managed it.
