Failed Superhero Movie? Not quite! We dive into Robert Townsend's "The Meteor Man" and pull out how this move was ahead of its time as it was empowering, not only for communities of color, but for every community who's ever needed to know what it means to "come together".
In this episode, we take a look at one of our favorite superheroes growing up! We look at him in a way that I never consciously thought about and are primarily looking at the film trilogy while also touching on the comic history.
I believe that we can take elements of our favorite superheroes and apply their desire to be better into our daily lives. That sounds great, but like anything, it takes time, practice and failure.
In this episode I welcome Crunchy from the Millennial Nostalgia Berries Podcast! We cover Milestone Comics and their title characters. We discuss the impact they had on mass media comics as well as highlighting what may have been their downfall. Milestone Media changed the game on what it meant to stereotype underrepresented superheroes. They broke the status quo, they created new back stories and became leaders within the comic book industry where there was great under-representation.
In this episode we travel back in time to someone who isn't regularly, if ever seen, as a superhero but everyone knows his name. While not ever seen or given the title of superhero, he is a man who's known to be invincible, a master swordsman and quite handsome!
