Money would never motivate a true super-sero. The work is too creative for money to be an incentive. Not to mention money must be the easiest thing for a super-hero to get their hands on day-to-day.
Just think of how many lives Superman could save, and how much money Superman could make by getting into the diamond trade. That's good business right there!
 
If you want to motivate a super-hero all you should need is evil.

@Babs I'm with you on Joss Whedon. Not a fan.
 
Also Futurama pointed out why superheroes never reveal their identities: Collateral Damage. Everytime Superman throws a car at a baddie, someone has to pay for that! And I'm guessing insurance won't cover that. My point being, they'd PROBABLY dock a superhero's pay for every dent, ding, and scratch they leave around town during fights. Either that or cities like Metropolis would have staggering city taxes to cover that kind of damage.

My idea for the Avengers movie,
Nick Fury and SHIELD have been putting together a team of heroes because heroes and villains (powerful people are out there and who knows when they will strike or snap, they need heroes who can handle that)
Loki (introduced in the Thor movie) at the same time wants to attack Thor, and manipulates the Hulk into attacking New York.  (Either he controls his mind or tricks him with hallucination and mirages, or both).  So the Avengers MUST be put together, no more waiting.  Hulk is a serious threat.  So the Avengers are called in to confront the Hulk.

So it expands on the Avenger
Eventually, after their initial confrontation with the Hulk, it is discovered that Thor's brother Loki is behind it all.  Hulk doesn't like being used like that.  So he joins the Avengers in fighting Loki.
In the end the Avengers, and some SHIELD agents repel Loki and save the day.  Hulk runs off, and the Avengers are formed and in the public eye now.

I love his point about how with the larger mainstream comics that the finale is always the same. It makes it almost like a sitcom. Actually, I believe it's tragedies that always come in threes.
 
I like shows that you can learn something from. It's why I'm normally watching Discovery or History Channel. I did enjoy the remake of Battlestar Galactica. My favorite show is Mythbusters, which is made in San Fransisco. So, that's makes two things that come out of San Fransisco that I enjoy. Mythbusters and Comic Vine.

I read the study on how colors inflict emotions. Prisons are colored a specific way. We studied this in psychology and sociology.

Wolverine in his Civil War trade speaks to what Atlantians smell like. I believe he says something along the lines of fish and motor oil. Though, that didn't stop him from sleeping with that one at the end of the book.
 
I can understand parts of the Registration Act, but not the part where they have to make their identity known publicly. They could of just kept the identities a secret. Only to be used if the Hero got out of line. Hell, you could probably arrest them and never reveal their true identity. Use a military court.
Though Babs' argument really doesn't cover mutants who were never asked if they wanted these powers. They were forced on them. Their Civil Liberties would be null for just their birth.
 
It's called "Review Wednesday"?? I don't mind the reviews. I like reading reviews or the videos.

The resistance to Clark wearing tights was a stylistic choice since he was not meant to be Superman. In this last season it is billed as the rise of Superman. The show's creators still remained when the superheroes first did. 
 
I don't think realism is a problem with The Dark Knight it was successful because it treated the characters with dignity and intelligence. Heroes was cancelled because the same storyline was repeated over again for multiple seasons.    
 
Joss Whedon sucks. 
 
I don't think Babs made that strong an argument against Superman he is more than human and fully sympathetic and would not snap. 
 
 I always wonder what people mean when they say "if Superheroes were real" do you mean if superpowers existed or do you mean what if Brainiac or even The Primordial Annihilator  Mageddon a creature that can insight violent actions and hatred in the planet's population really existed there would need to be superheroes to battle them. You would want superheroes to exist and if they were real then they would get pies from people or free stuff just out of gratitude. 
  
If you are worried about continuity when reading comic books then you probably do not care about the story much.  The order goes Final Crisis then Cry for Justice then Blackest Night and Rise and Fall then Brightest Day.

I really liked the second part of the podcast where you discussed the news and different topics. They should leave Kraven alone. I won't risk them ruining one of my top 3 best comics of all time.

I enjoyed the first season of Heroes was pretty good and exciting but then everything fell apart.Also they didn't cast me as the guy with Heat Vision in fact no one had Heat Vision and that was a fatal mistake.Smallville is bleh and I can't believe I watched most of both of these series.I doubt any of these Superhero shows will work The Cape sill be too campy and NOF won't be funny enough.
 
Yellow might just be my least favorite color right in front of pink.
 
Cheadle is way better as Rhodey and I agree with you GMan Terrance Howard doesn't seem like a very threatening person.I doubt Terrance Howard will play a superhero...
 
JRJr is too cartoony for the Avengers and most other books.Fraction is a decent writer I mean he did win an award for Iron-Man so he can't be too bad all around.
 
Joss Whedon is good Nathan Fillion as Captain Malcolm Reynolds is great!Bromance!I used to watch Buffy and Angel and they were fun but Firefly blows them out of the water. Whedon does a good job with Babs I think you are alone on that one.
 
Fishy Vampires! Make Namor a Vampire and give him a new name...beware the Piranha! lol
 Namor Stinks,Namor Smells,Namor wipes his butt with golden fish scales!
Namor the Submariner is a big fat wiener!
lol sorry I had to take it back to the playground for a minute.
 
If there was a superhero in real life who was willing to play the part and was up to it then sure pay them. Sports stars get paid millions for being good,or not, at what they do so why not just pay a superhero who will save lives?The Superhero will be like a super cop enforce the law and protect and serve.That being said If I had the power I would totally rule the world, sorry, or I would at least take a decent sized country I wouldn't really want the responsibility of ruling the entire world.Superheroes would either need to be trained and paid as a super police force or register and possibly forfeit their powers if they don't want them or have a criminal history. 

Megan Fox is ew now...when I first saw her I was like hello! now I am just annoyed by her and her fake lips and stupid voice.They clean silverware at restaurants and there are health codes that are enforced now I know that doesn't mean all the restaurants in the world are perfectly clean but you can't be a scared germaphobe all the time.
 
Skrull Girl!
 
Good podcast guys...

Hahaha there was a lot of background noise at the beginning of the podcast.... and that phone call was hilarious!
I NEED to read Cowboy Ninja Viking... I will definitely get the trade!
AJ Lieberman seems like a really fun person!  

Superman Returns: That movie was not good and I agree with Tony Supes was totally out of character...
 
Heroes vs Smallville: In Smallville the main character's powers are re-used, while Heroes has a bunch of effects and things... but I think Heroes tanked because they never established characters... they are always changing... so uh!
Also I think that Smallville is doing a good job so far because putting him in the tights would not look good... I think he already is Superman... everybody just wants him to be red in blue rather than black... but I think it's good, sure not all episodes are enjoyable but as a whole it's a good show!
 
TV:@Babs if you like something under 30 min then you should watch FRIENDS... It's fun, funny and 20 min per episode.
 
Translate into live-action: Yeah I understand all the costume changes, which is why I think in Smallville the tights is not a good idea. 
 
Terrance Howard: I don't understand what happened behind the scenes there (and to be honest it bothered me to see Rhodey changed) but if this allows him to be another super hero then I think he should be Falcon! 
I agree with Sarah think Howard played a great Rhodey!
 
What Ifs: I think the artist helps the book being enjoyable... I do the what ifs a lot on Ultimate Spider-Man thinking what if Bagley was still drawing this! 

LOL at the Tony's man-crushes
 
X-Men and Vampires:
There's a chance this could be really good... and by the way Namor is finally an established character in the Marvel U which is why I love Namor with the X-Men
 
Paid Super Heroes: If something like the Avengers Initiative was established then yes!...  but you need a SHIELD for that to be controlled...
 
Smack him Sara!
 
Sara seems like she should be the new Victoria Hand/Maria Hill!
 
Megan Fox: I've said it once and I'll say it again. She should be in Transformers 3 for the first 15 minutes of the  movie and pull a death scene like what they did with Cyclops in X3... Only this time I won't be sad.
 
Continuity: I think that there's too many events. In the case of Marvel right now, the organization is all right. What I mean is that in the FF books they are off in space and IDK where else (I don't read it) while the X-Men are worried about Second Coming, so the rest of the heroes are on Siege... and none of those characters intertwined. 
Difference is that in DC there are three events going on with the same characters. So they should either wait for one event to be over for the rest to happen.
 
Babs vs G-Man Popularity Contest: By the way I think that the fact that the both of you have so many different
books that you like we can all figure out who's preferences help us pick our books.
For example I agree with Tony mostly when it's about an indy book or a Marvel book, but I agree with Sara when it comes to DC books... That way I know what to buy!
 
Skrulls: I think it will work if they set it up as it is set up on the Ultimates. The chutari (or however you spell it) invade earth so now the avengers have to join forces. Then on a sequel we get Loki just like Ultimates 2... and as long as they don't try and translate Ultimates 3 or New Ultimates into a movie it's all good!

Great podcast guys!

G-Man you should do a 'pick of the week in comic books' on the podcast.
 
Also
I think Babs should be cast in Transformers 3. She would make it awesome.
 
Great podcast.

There's absolutely no reason that they couldn't use the brown costume for Wolverine for film had they wanted to.

He is most likely going to be the Falcon. 
Finally! Someone says it Don Cheadle IS a better actor than Terrence Howard.

@RomaTotti10: Pick of the Week would be great. But I'm not gonna lie, there's no way I'd be able to rea 30+ books by Friday morning.

You guys could do Personal pick of the week, out of the comics you read.  You could even state, that this is pick of the week out of these books (and list them) or just a sort of disclaimer that you haven't read all the books that came out.
Personally I wouldn't mind.

Finally got round to listening to this, great job as usual. I have something to say about Review Wednesdays, and forgive me if I sound rude or out-or-order. I like the fact that the site is so devoted to reviewing books, but I never feel compelled to read the reviews. To me, they're basically a list of what you thought was good and bad about the comic, which to me isn't really a review. There's a difference between making a list and writing a coherent argument with paragraphs and the works. I have to admit, I don't tend to read those sorts of reviews. Again, I don't want to sound too critical or anything, and I'm probably the only one who thinks this way. This site is so good in all the other respects that it's really no big.

call me crazy but why aren't the videos available for itunes as well? Aren't the majority of them "archived" anyways. I can't see any link or reference this can be done. If I'm wrong can someone send a link?

Just went out and bought the trade of Cowboy Ninja Viking and am loving it so far. Really like the unusual dialogue and dig the extra large size.
 
Must start collecting from Issue #6 from now on!
 
P.S. when are you gonna sort out your mic and volume issues? I listen to the podcast using headphones and sometimes I can barely hear G-Man and other times Babs is making me deaf...
