Episode 10 - Modcast X

PCX reviews Teen Titans V1 #17
"You have to admit that the Zeros did look pretty cool."
"They did look pretty cool."
"Yeah, if I’m an American soldier and I have to be blown up, I’d actually prefer to be blown up by a Zero because at least that cool plane would be the last thing I'd see."

Just stopping by to offer some info. I'm listening to your "Modcast" right now and wanted to let you know that the cover of Teen Titans #17 wasn't totally bassackwards about the cover saying "Return of Mad Mod." He actually first appeared in issue # 7. No, I don't give a shit about the Teen Titans, I'm just a comic geek with too much useless info running between my ears.

Oh, and Star Trek sucks.

Just kidding. About the Star Trek thing. Who am I to judge? I own Knight Rider on DVD, for cryin' out loud!

anonymous: Try right-clicking on the "click here to listen" link, then choose the "Save Target As..." option. When all else fails, that always seems to work here.

ikenheimer: I'm glad I didn't know about the Mad Mod's actual debut, or we might've felt compelled to review that comic, too (and I have few enough brain cells left after subjecting myself to #17).

...and I'm (obviously) not speaking for MC Trekkie here, but Star Trek totally sucks! Well, except for that time they revamped the entire premise and called it "Lexx". That was pretty cool.

In light of your weary brain cells, I have a suggestion for a review. Don't know if you've ever heard of it, but DC did a limited series back in the late 90's called Camelot 3000. You can now access the entire series in TPB form. This series was one of the worst (and embarrasingly funny) comics I ever read. The premis is ludicrus, the story is pretty cliché, but the art isn't bad. Anyway, just offering.

Dig the hell out of your podcast, BTW.

Thanks for the kind words. I haven't read Camelot 3000; I do remember it getting good press in Amazing Heroes and the like back in the day, but this would've been before Watchmen raised the bar for funnybook writing.

PCX: The Classics Tour.

Superheroes TV Series were always a disappointment when they couldn't do the same things the character did in the comics. Like Hulk wasn't invulnerable nor could he jump miles. Spider-man not doing Spider-man stuff. So when you think Wonder Girl shouldn't be able to fly because she couldn't in the TV series, I call you an enabler. You enable these cheap Hollywood Jews to cut corner and say, "Wonder Girl is a minor character, noone is going to remember she flies in the comic books." Enabler! (I'm pointing at you, MCT.)

Amazons train constantly on Amazon Island, sword, spear, bows and arrows, running in heels. All to keep them in tip top combat readiness.

Lesbians have been around atleast since the time of the Greeks, the word originates from Lesbos, an island in Greece where much female love propagated.

Camelot 3000 was great when it came out but it's become somewhat campy in my present POV. And it was done in the mid 80's.

Xantes.

Amazonian girls can't fly 'cause they haven't yet had their period- and are heavy with thick Amazon eggs and blood.

It's like Ballast.

Women from the Amazon can fly just fine.

Why can't Old women from the Amazon fly either?

Vinegar is pretty heavy too.

Listen up enabler. If anything the pre-Crisis Wonder Girl could fly because she hadn't started her periods. If they fly too fast, they bleed out. So only at times of emergencies could Wonder Woman fly for short distances, it was called the Red Rains.
