#25: "The Lonesome Death Of Spider-Goblin" (Challenge Of The Supertoons Part VII)


or "The Carnage Queen declares... ORDER?!"

In the epic finale' (for now) of our animated retrospective, we go from 2009 to the modern day, as America is awed by Charles "Future Legs" Xavier, riveted by the humanity of Yellowjacket, and learns to love... Agent Venom? Really? From that weird CGI show where Iron Man is a teenager, to the most hated Marvel property of our generation (until Iron Fist), the Unreal Experts once again find plenty worth a second look that you might have written off. How exactly did we lose the dearly departed Wolverine & The X-Men? How big of an impact did Man Of Action Studios have on Marvel Animation? And HOW do you ****-up Hulk as a vampire king? HOW DO YOU **** THAT UP?!

To find out, well, you'll just have to listen!

#21: "Midnight In The Garden Of Venom And Carnage" (Challenge Of The Supertoons Part V)


or "Welcome to the Fashion Warriors, Betty... hope you survive the experience!"

In part five of our animated retrospective, the Children of The Nineties revisit Marvel's biggest decade ever... until this current one, at least. From 1992-1999, follow the trail of broken dreams and legal fees that led to the shows that captured your five-year-old imagination, as we follow the redemption of Tony Stark, the battle for the soul of the Fantastic Four, and the unending shame of Ant Man. Why did She-Hulk and her gammazons take over an unsuspecting Hulk cartoon? What's the most adult-oriented Marvel cartoon you've never watched? And what shocking corporate intrigue REALLY led to Spider-Man being exiled from planet Earth?

To find out, well, you'll just have to listen!

Off The Panel Classic - Wolverine: Origin


In this reprint of a classic OPP episode, The Men Who Would Be Unreal unite for the very first time to share their love for one of the most underrated stories to come out of modern Marvel: Paul Jenkins', Andy Kubert's, and Richard Isanove's "Origin". From his humble beginnings playing hoop and stick, to his disturbing transformation into the animal he was destined to become, your hosts explore the tragic first years of  Wolverine, and laugh at the very concept of Marvel ever redoing old event comics. Ha ha, we were so young.

#13: "Metropolis Restored" (Dreams, Hoaxes, And Imaginary Tales Part II)


or "IF THIS BE MY MISTRESS..."

In part two of our four-part series on the greatest comic book stories never told, we meet a caped crusader fighting for his life in The Great War, a wall-crawler in too deep with the wrong kind of lady, and a born-again 'bub with his heart in the right place (and the rest of him in ninja). Who IS The Huntsman, and how would he have been a game-changer for Image? How does The Dark Knight Returns tie into a coup d'etat that would have changed the comic book industry forever? And why on Earth won't Len Wein admit the TRUTH about Wolverine?!

To find out, well, you'll just have to listen!

#8 "We MUST, Robin: The Fashionably Lame Costumes of Comics"


or "The Boob Window At The Gates Of Always!"

From fishnets to head-fins, bandoleers to face-socks, gloves that stretch to the armpits to collars that climb to the heavens, superhero costumes have seen their share of highs and lows. Join Aristocratic Alex, Jammin' James, and Maniacal Mike as they plumb the depths of four color fashion in a discussion of their favorite looks, why certain costumes have stuck around for so long, the subjectivity of a good design, and what the hell is even going on with Gambit's stupid head.

All and this more, in the link!

#6: "Spawn of Image, Part One: McFarlane Just Wants To Draw"


or "BLOODFIST: Omega Genesis!"

In part one of our look at the rise, fall, and rebirth of perhaps the most controversial and influential publisher in comic book history, the Unreal Experts chart the rise of the Super-Artists: Todd "Hulk Hogan" McFarlane, Jim "Captain America" Lee, and Rob "David Hasslehoff" Liefeld. How did Jim Shooter unintentionally pave the way for Image Comics? Which account of the company's creation actually holds water? And why does it all come back to Cable?! To find out the answers, well, you'll just have to listen!

#3: "The Identity Of Secrets"



or "MILD MANNERS OF THE MASKED!"

Hidden away from the prying eyes of the world, underneath Podcast City's most exclusive nightclub, the unreal experts don their disguises and speak in cryptic tones, as they debate their most sensitive topic yet: secrets! Does the trope of duel identities still have a purpose to serve in today's comics, or is it just a golden age hold-over that's long outlived its usefulness? To what depths will Green Arrow sink to avoid a paternity test? And just who, exactly, ARE our mysterious hosts? To find out the answers, well, you'll just have to listen!

or "AND THE WIND CRIES... 'PODCAST'!"

Before their blockbuster debut in #1, witness the secret origins of our intrepid trinity, as they discuss their long relationship with comic book culture, the creators who inspire them, the stories that move them, and Machine Man. Seriously, Machine Man gets a lot of play in this episode.
