That was probably the most intellectual Podcast X episode yet.

About whether or not Batman is the the little boy inside forever.
I think the moment his parents died he became someone else altogether. But it took him a long time to discover who he really was, Batman.
His parent's death created Batman but it isn't his only source of motivation. So many things have happened during his career that drive him ever onwards to save Gotham.

So basically, I may not have agreed on alot of what Trekkie said, but he was right about that.

Also, Trekkie sounds like Billy Quizboy from Venture Brothers.

That's gotta be the first (and probably last) time anyone's used "intellectual" and "Podcast X" in the same sentence.

I never knew that Venture Bros. character had a name; they did give him one of the show's all-time great lines, though (the flea market episode: "He's an albino! You can kill him with light!")

I should've known something was wrong with the comic send when it took a whopping three and a half hours to e-mail you (or so I thought) Tank Girl last week. I'm resending via Hotmail instead of SendThisFile now to yr sithchic@bigpond.net.au address.

Geoff Johns is a hack? JSA is consistently one of the best titles put out by either of the big two, and the Sinestro Corps War was incredible.

The Batman issue is clearly a string of hallucinations within memories within a flashback within a flashback. He's having a heart attack, remembering his time in the cave, where he hallucinated Bat-Mite and saw his own funeral, and where he remembered the "Robin Dies at Dawn" issue, where he hallucinated Dick's death.

I'd like to think the Joe Chill scenes really happened, but it's understandable if they didn't. It's open to interpretation, and works either way.

As for the podcast itself, you two are some of the most captious, close-minded fanboys I've ever wasted an hour listening to. You haven't even read half the stuff you're bitching about.

You are the cancer killing the comics industry.

Agreed.

God, what a fucking waste...

Cancer? The only wasting disease here is the AIDS your crack whore mothers were infected with when they were gang-raped at the Home for Retarded Mongoloids.

Oh wait, that's actually the story of how you two were conceived!

Oh great comeback burn, my man!
It's probably just one person.
But this person/s should be warned that I am the head minion of this here podcast and it is my sworn duty to protect it from the likes of haters.

Any fool would have realised that this podcast isn't about the comics and even when it is it's not to be taken seriously. Honestly, some people!

Even though i also disagree with your opinion about Geoff Johns, I don't agree with anything else those posers said. They couldn't even come with a colorful moniker to post with.

Typical status quo fanboys: They can read comics and watch SF all of their lives and still have no imagination whatsoever.
I have a name for that duo (or bi-polar)fanboy/s: Status Quo.

To Status Quo:

You'wasted' an hour on PCX? You get the gist of the show in fifteen minutes, so why 'waste' the rest of the time listening if the show is so bad? Then you 'waste' another fifteen minutes posting your thoughts about the show. Real cool there, chili dog. Fess up, You liked the show. You just can't stand the though of someone disagreeing with 'the collective'.

"Honestly, some people!"

Damn Courtney, I can't believe you actually scolded the troll(s)! I'd say that you'd make a great mother some day, but I know how you feel about (as you correctly call them) Vagina Monsters.

And Tim, you nailed what passes for the thought process of the typical fanboy so perfectly I can only add, "Yeah! What he said!"

Maybe I could get a surrogate mother?
It would be interesting, raising/brainwashing a child to be a mini me.
God, they would turn out so mentally screwed up.

Ummm.... isn't that a big oxymoron there. Wouldn't labeling them as "fanboys" imply the connotation that they would have read the stuff they're "bitching about".

And while I agree that everyone is entitled to their own input and opinions; I also must agree with T_Thoom that aren't you waisting your time listening and posting about podcasts you don't like. (rather than finding one you do)

I also take it that comics are the most important thing in you life for you to make such an effort... and you don't have any larger worldly issues to deal with.... Must be nice dude.

Courtney: You think you're joking, but you're right - "parenting" is brainwashing! Turn those Vagina Monsters loose at birth to grow up in the wild, I say.

SatanicMuffin: Thanks for that, dude; I know for myself I just don't have the patience for anything I try out that turns out to suck.

Case in point: I watched the pilot for that new Galactica show right up to the point where the "orgasm sensor" in the Cylon chick's spine was activated and I was like, "Uhh...no." *click*

If these guys had the same reaction, I guess they'd not only keep watching that particular episode, but the entire series right up 'til the end.

PCX: The Classics Tour.

If they really want to jump the shark with Batman have Bruce's whole existence be a secret government experiment lead by undercover agent Alfred in order to program a boy into the top sleeper agent.

Similiar to when they tried to imply Alfred was Bruce's father. It would be so easy for Bruce to check their dna.

No, in a one on one fight, Batman would beat Iron Man. He would probably use an emp device and a brain scrambler. And before he called in the JLA he would call in Bat support, have Tim and Oracle hack his system while he had Lucius Fox buy up controlling stock in Starktech. And have his backup satellite blow up any info and power relays Tony has set up. Also he does have a few Bat cyborg suits. Probably not on par with Iron Man's suits but it would give him time to disable Tony. Or Batman being Batman, he might have been able to inflitrate the Stark mainframe and built his own Bat-Iron-Man suit.

Atleast in the movie Lucius Fox knows Bruce is Batman and not like in the comic books where he's a clueless brilliant accountant in charge of all of Bruce's money.

Ha ha. "He cheats on her I'm sure." How prophetic were those words on Arnold.

I so hated stuff like that in BSG, you know they did it to be clever, but wouldn't you think people would notice them glowing along their backside when having sex? How about set up an orgasmotron machine to test for cylons? The show would be so good at times, and then they would have to put something dumb in it to show how clever they are.

At least these Anonymous members didn't come after you in Guido Fawkes masks.
