DCOCD 48 - Justice League Vs Suicide Squad

DCOCD is the DC Comics events podcast, where we look at every DC event in chronological order from Crisis on Infinite Earths to... we're not quite sure yet.

It’s the end of 2016 and DC management thought about their big team movies and then went 'WAIT A SEC, WHAT IF WE MADE OUR TEAMS FIGHT LIKE OUR CHARACTERS IN MOVIES DO' and before you could say 'Martha' JUSTICE LEAGUE VS SUICIDE SQUAD was born.

It’s from creators Josh Williamson, Tim Seeley, Jason Fabok, Tony S Daniel, Gabriel Eltaeb and many more.

Paul and Mike are joined by Doctor DC (from the coincidentally named Doctor DC podcast) to discuss, dissect and score this event.

The Gary Show 7

Favourite things of our least favourite year. Regrettable acts of lending and missing pieces. You’re welcome, Neil Gaiman. Issues with hair. Lack of zing. RAP not WAP. Slight concerns about Adelaide. Prioritising podcasts with one of many Pauls. Inadvertently momentarily political. Christmas disasters. Logic. Temporal tourism. Have a very Gary Christmas everyone!

 

Featured music:

 

Intro/Outro - "Machine Gun" - The Commodores

"Heavy Weather" - The Reubens
