Marvel’s comics have always been known for a certain, shall we say Soap Opera-level convolution. But the confusing mishmash that is the Marvel Universe has nothing on the Soap Opera that is Marvel itself. This week, word broke, finally, that Marvel is canceling Fantastic Four. But the really crazy thing is that supposedly, they’re doing it in order to screw over Fox’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. Really? Maybe it’s even true! We talk about that, as well as the even crazier rumors that Sony and Marvel might reach some kind of accord over Spider-Man. We also talk copyright law, and how and why DC’s ownership of Superman appears to have been secured. Also, Ross makes a weird and boring digression to talk about Oscar Wilde.
The cast this week: Ross A Lincoln, Carly Smith, and Marshall Lemon.
