Welcome back to Make Mine Multiversity: A Marvel Podcast! Each episode we’ll be looking at Marvel books, old and new, discussing those books, and also talking Marvel news, Marvel history and, sometimes, we’ll even have lists! I’d say we don’t have any this time, as it’s book club week, but, uh, well, lists find a way.

Make Mine Multiversity is a twice-monthly podcast that premieres on the first and third Friday of every month! Unless you’re still stuck in the Halacha Zone, in which case it’s always Shabbos afternoon.

In this episode, the Make Mine Multiversity book club is back, ready to transport you to Earth-70105, where things are the same, things are different, and one shift ripples out into the world. What If Iron Man wasn’t Tony Stank? What IF WWII had a different hero? What If Spider-Man was as creepy as the name sounded? Find out, dear readers, if YOU DARE. Or if you like listening to Jake and Elias make absolute fools of themselves.

Next month’s book club: twenty-five, count ’em, 25(!) issues of the 2004-2008 “Astonishing X-Men” run by Joss Wheadon & John Cassaday. That’s a lot of quips, a lot of X-drama and a whole lot of early 2000s to be wary of.

Thoughts on the show, or about Marvel Comics in general? Shout off in the comment section below and get the conversation started or share them on Twitter using the hashtag #MakeMineMultiversity. Elias can be found on Twitter @Quetzelish and Jake @Rambling_Moose.

    Make Mine Multiversity Episode 56: Metal Man Punch Good

    By , and | Nov 20, 2020 | Podcasts

    This month's book club was so massive, so big that we needed to bring in a special guest to help us out. No, it's not John Cassady, though that would be sweet. No, it's not Joss Whedon because, uh, how to put this delicately. Well, here's a Rundown with some details and we get into it in the episode. It's fellow site contributor Joe Skonce! He's here to talk about all 25 issues of "Astonishing X-Men," make bad jokes with Jake and Elias, and talk about that big metal man who punch good: Colossus.
