Heroes and Villains 9: Green Arrow

A billionaire playboy who fights crime with his young sidekick. Does this sound familiar? No, it's not Batman, it's Green Arrow. He's made appearances in comic books since the golden age, had a lone appearance on Superfriends, was a regular on Smallvile and now has his own show, Arrow. Frequently serving as the moral compass and voice of the left for the DCU Green Arrow has a long and interesting story.

Heroes and Villains 8: Valkyrie

My first ever episode done by request! Also my first female superhero. Based on the epic opera by Wagner, Brunnehilde the Valkyrie is the mightiest of all Asgardian godesses. Her origin is largely unknown, but her power is unquestioned. Hand picked by Odine to lead the Valkyrior, the choosers of the slain, she was tricked by the Enchantress into being a pawn. Thankfully due to key events she was given an opportunity to be one of the greatest and most impactful heroes of the Marvel Universe. Listen now to learn of the epic that is Valkyrie.

Heroes and Villains 6: Damian Wayne (the Fifth Robin)

Inspired by Batman, Inc. that was released today, I bring you a superhero that has been all over the (spoilery) headlines. I do reveal a spoiler at the end of the show, but let's be honest, I am spoiling the worst kept secret in comic books. Don't worry I don't spoil until the end of the show and I give plenty of warning. Now sit back, get comfortable, and listen to me tell you all about the son of Batman - Damian Wayne!

Heroes and Villains 5: The Phantom

He introduced the world to skin tight costumes. He defended the jungle, existing as more of a legend than a man. He swore to devote his life to the destruction of piracy, greed, cruelty, and injustice, in all their forms. Packing pistols and carrying on the family tradition, no one intimidated the bad guys like The Phantom!
