We discuss the latest Captain America story that had the entire internet a buzz. The apparent revelation that Cap is actually a Hydra agent. Leading many to lay wild claims of antisemitism at writer Nick Spencer and some death threats for good measure. We give our thoughts on this latest controversy in comics.
We talk with comic artist Marcus To! Marcus will be on to talk about Joyride, the creator owned miniseries being released through Boom! Studios (the second issue of which hits comic shops this Wednesday!). We’ll also chat with him about his recent work on New Avengers as well as his upcoming run on the new Nightwing series debuting this summer.
Our review of X-Men: Apocalypse starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence . Synopsis: Worshiped as a god since the dawn of civilization, the immortal Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) becomes the first and most powerful mutant. Awakening after thousands of years, he recruits the disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and other mutants to create a new world order. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Professor X (James McAvoy) and Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) lead a team of young X-Men to stop their seemingly invincible nemesis from destroying mankind.
We are also talking with actor Carolina Bartczak. Carolina has a small but pivotal role as Magda, the wife of Magneto in X-Men: Apocalypse. What secrets of the X-Universe will she reveal on this week’s show? Carolina was born in Germany to Polish parents before immigrating to Canada.
