97 – Superheroes on TV, Part 1

The Mythcreant Podcast

What’s that on your TV screen? Is it a bird or plane? Nope, it’s three podcast hosts talking about superheroes on television. Capes and spandex work differently on the small screen than in movies or comic books, and we’re here to discuss why. Although mostly we end up debating whether or not Superman is a good choice for protagonist. The verdict may shock you! What will definitely shock you is how much Mike knows about superhero shows from the early 90’s. Also heavily featured is the Flash, which is not the fastest topic to discuss, and Arrow, which is a rather pointy subject.
