Heroes and Villains 59: Deathstroke the Terminator

Proud member of The Omega Nerds Network

 

This week I discuss Slade Wilson, also known as Deathstroke. He is one of the classic enemies (and occassional ally) of the Teen Titans. I discuss his rapid rise in the pre- Viet Nam war military as a teenager, the scientific experimentation the lead to his "near superhuman" powers and his rise as the world's most famous mercenary. I also discuss his dysfunctional family life that involves being shot in the face by his wife (the are no longer married by the way). Listen to this episode to hear all about the things that make Deathstroke one of the Baddest guys in the DC Universe.

This week Charlie joins me to discuss one of his all time favorite properties, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Most people probably know these "heroes on a half-shell" from the long running animated series, but we discuss the nitty gritty of what made the original Mirage comics so great. We also spend a fair amount of time discussing the various multimedia incarnations as well. Listen in to hear us spend just over an hour discussing "Turtle Power"

James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes was a tremendously skilled soldier, as well as Captain America's trusted allie during World War II. Unfortunately he seemed to meet his demise atop an exploding aircraft near the end of the war. Bucky was believed to be dead for over sixty years until a mysterious figure known as The Winter Soldier began to appear. Listen to this episode to hear Dan and me give you all the background information you need on the character who will undoubtedly play a major role in the upcoming film "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

On this episode I am joined by Tom Pandich to discuss one of the more complicated characters from Spider-Man's world, Venom. Coming from a race of alien symbiotes, the being who would become Venom was exiled from his home planet because he was not "parasitic enough". Thanks to a (perhaps not entirely) chance encounter with Peter Parker on Battleworld, the symbiote was transported to Earth where he would eventually meet his ideal host - Eddie Brock.

Ryan Allgood Joins me again to discuss another character from the Star Wars Expanded Universe, Quinlan Vos. He is a force sensitive Kiffar, with the added power of psychometry making him desirable to both the Jedi and the Sith. He managed to fall in love and reproduce much like another Jedi you may know who was also tempted by the Dark side of the force. Whether serving as a Master on the Jedi council, or as a member of the Dark Acolytes, Vos is truly an interesting and formidable character.

I want to wish everyone the best of luck in 2014, and I thought what better way to ring in the New Year than by bringing you the luckiest superhero in the world - Longshot! Created to be a rebellious slave in a strange dimension, he was a clone of his own son (confused yet?). His greatest power is his ridiculously improbable luck. Listen up to learn all about this guy with mojo to burn.
