Episode 49 - I'm the World's Greatest


Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.

Happy 4th of July, fellow Americans
No interview this week, but the show is up a day early. For the people.

Three comics from July 2, 2014. Plus your Nerd Confessions (about your favorite comics EVER) and a bit of Regression Therapy. 

Show Notes:
This week’s theme is delusions of grandeur. We’re looking at characters who think they’re untouchable, unstoppable. That’s a pretty common trait in comics. Heroes and villains with a god complex make up probably a third of the books out there. What sorts of things have to be in play to convince an individual that he is all-powerful? And yes, shockingly, all of the delusional characters we’re looking at today happen to be male. Go figure.

Moon Knight #5 22:00
This unstable vigilante is kicking ass and taking names, looking more confident than he has in years. So far, his delusions really are pretty grand.

The White Suits #4 37:35
Who are the good guys anymore? And if revenge is the motivator behind one's actions, are those actions still done for the greater good?

Sheltered #10 52:50
A God amongst kids. Or a reprehensible leader, using his charisma - and a lot of lying - to carry out the most atrocious acts.
