To kick off 2014, Sandy, Shan & Vince started talking and somewhere along the line, Vince hit the record button. PROFESSIONALISM!!! The result is one of the most scattershot episodes we’ve had, though we still had tons of fun.

  • Sandy and Vince drop some knowledge on the history of Green Arrow and The Comics Code circa 1960’s-1970’s
  • The Rogues talk Gal Gadot getting cast as Wonder Woman, and whether the addition of a third hero might be the downfall of the Batman/Superman movie
