Special: Tales To Astonish

With the first season of The Great American Pop Culture Quiz Show complete, we celebrate with our first of many theme matches — Marvel Comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Join us as Ben, Darren and Tim test their knowledge of all things Marvel including a Marvel Cinematic Universe invasion of the rest of pop culture and a trip through some of Marvel’s weirdest storylines. We’ve got werewolves and time travel shenanigans aplenty for you to enjoy!

Also on this episode, you’ll find out what’s in store for season two (it’s neat!). We are accepting applications to be a contestant on season three so if you think you’ve got what it takes, apply now!

Episode Notes

 🗒 Brackets and full episodes notes can be found on this episode's page on USAQuizShow.com

 👊 Remember Iron Fist? No, really. Think about it. Do you actually remember it?

 👀 Uatu The Watcher is watching us from a distance

 🎷 Since Marvel's acquisition of the Ultraverse line of comics, "Nightman" is technically a Marvel show.

 👛 What's in the pouches? Only Rob Liefeld knows for sure.

 🐺 The 90s "Capwolf" storyline is good, actually

 🛣 We managed to work in two references to The Crossing, maybe the most reviled Avengers storyline of the past 30 years...

 🍼 ...and one reference to the very icky Avengers #200, which is the most revolved Avengers storyline of the 30 years before that.

 🌎 The "Ego the Loving Planet" story, in which Ego is a pick-up artist trying to get with Earth, only to be put off when he sees that she's just covered in yucky people, is wonderfully silly.

 🧠 Remember: standing offer from Darren to learn math. Thanks Darren?
