Welcome friends to Back Issue Bloodbath, a comics-centric podcast presented by Geek Hard. Join hosts Andrew Young and Sammy Younan as they get down and dirty in the four-colour world of comic books, focusing on classic stories, new issues, comic creators and hot button topics.
This Friday, Marvel’s Iron Fist Season 2 drops on Netflix. The show features a number of recognizable characters from the first season, as well as a few new ones. Alice Eve joins the cast as the villainous Typhoid Mary. This has lead many who are not up to date on Marvel comics to ask, “Who the Hell is Typhoid Mary?” This week, we try our best to answer that question for you.
Typhoid Mary made her debut in Daredevil #254 in the spring of 1988. Created by Ann Nocenti and John Romita Jr., the character suffers from a split personality disorder. As Mary, she’s a sweet, caring woman who falls in love with Matt Murdock. As Typhoid, she’s a crazed killer who has the powers of telekinesis and pyro-kinesis (she can move items and set them on fire with her mind.) Will she be able to pull off these tricks in the new season of Iron Fist? Time will tell. Let Andrew and Sammy fill you in on the first comic story on Typhoid Mary as they discuss whether or not it holds up today. It’s all coming your way on a brand new episode of your favourite comic book podcast, Back Issue Bloodbath!
