After a quick apology for Chris’s illness, the show gets underway, and our first question asks us who we would assign as Batman Incorporated’s super-heroic protectors of North and South Carolina:
MATT: Well, I think you and I would agree on the Charlotte answer. That would be The Nature Boy, Ric Flair, who would have to patrol the streets of Charlotte. The thing is, you can’t style and profile in a mask, so he would have to be the outed member of Batman, Inc.
CHRIS: That could cause some trouble for him, and we wouldn’t want to see Ric Flair get into any serious legal or financial trouble.
MATT: He’s got such a clean record so far.
CHRIS: In addition to myself, because I’m very famous — you can tell by this rock star lifestyle that I’m living — Sumter’s two most famous native sons are Ryan Buell, who I went to high school with, who does a ghost hunting show called Paranormal State, and also Masta Killa, from the Wu-Tang Clan. But he would have to change his name to, like, Masta Non-Lethal Disabla. He could be in Batman, Inc. He already has a codename.
We also take a question on what board games we’d like to see now that Battleship has somehow found its way into movies:
MATT: I’d like to see a Neveldine/Taylor adaptation of Operation.
CHRIS: That’s good. I think Crank 2 might be that movie.
MATT: I think they made a movie that was basically Operation, but I want it to be a full-on adaptation.
CHRIS: Who would you get to play the dude? Big red nose dude.
MATT: Dwight Yoakam.
CHRIS: That’s good. I would like to see a faithful board game version of Monopoly, which would be eight hours long, and it sucked, and when you leave, you hate your family.
MATT: But even though it’s eight hours long, it doesn’t end. Someone just flips the board over.
CHRIS: I think James Cameron could do it in 3D.
MATT: I think Monopoly: The Movie is going to be a very pertinent commentary on the 1%. Uncle Moneybags is gonna get it.
CHRIS: Did you guys know Monopoly is terrible? Look: I probably don’t need to tell you guys this because you’re at a comic book convention, but if you know someone who’s, like, into something? Don’t get them the f***ing Monopoly version of that thing. That’s the worst. It’s the worst present, they’ll never play it, it’s not funny.
Plus, Chris and Matt take on the Justice League of Jason Stathams, awful wrestling comics, and a special appearance from fan-favorite guest, Curt Franklin!
