Much like Daylight Savings Time, the Intrepid Trio are back with a spanking new issue of Mighty Marvel Geeks!! They hit the ground running with Eric heading up the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. recap of episode 13 Parting Shot.. Eric breaks down the high octane episode and Mike and Kylan weigh in with their observations, as well. There’s on point where it might hit you in the feels! Mike then jumps in with the episode’s Biggest Moments, and he does not miss! Kylan then brings it all around with casting news for Marvel’s Most Wanted. The guys begin to use their deductive skills to figure out who Oded Fehr has been cast as…do you think they may be close or way off base? In added TV news Eric shares a story about the possibility of a Captain Britain series! The Trio are hoping this one proves to be true!! Mike then drops another bomb with Jeremy Renner stating how he would love to do a Netflix Hawkeye series! Kylan then bring the Marvel Unlimited Pick of the Week with Hawkeye and Mockingbird #1(2010).

The show the goes in the backstory with two rumor pieces and Marvel Unlimited Bookclub. Eric takes on a rumor about XMen: Age of Apocalypse being the jump off point where the XMen franchise is incorporated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Much is said and Kylan actually starts to get a headache from lack of logic in the story. Mike then wraps up the news portion with a story about the Tower of Terror becoming a Guardians of the Galaxy ride. At this point the Intrepid Trio is almost punchdrunk with the insanity of it all!! Kylan then wraps up the backstory with The Amazing Spider-Man #129(1974).

MMG Issue 106: Deliciously Twisted & Awesomely Wrong

Your Intrepid Trio returns this week with more news you can use in this weeks issue of Mighty Marvel Geeks. It is a show filled with Deadpool talk, rumors about the end of Agent Carter, and Marvel actively jumps into the cosplay game. Kylan kicks things of with his spoiler free-ish review of Deadpool. And believe me when I say he struggles to not drop all of the Easter eggs…although one huge one is let loose, so you’ve been warned! The guys then talk about the movie’s R rating and is it well deserved. The discussion then gets deeper into the level of appropriateness for younger viewers, in general. Eric then jumps in with his summary of this weeks Agent Carter episode “The Atomic Job”. More questions are asked and few are answered, that is for certain! We then get into rumors of Season 2 being the end as it has been confirmed that Hayley Atwell is starring in a new pilot for ABC. Mike then shares an article about Marvel making screen accurate items for cosplay, including Iron Man’s helmet and Cap’s shield. The biggest question for us is exactly how wide is Cap’s shield?

It is Kylan’s turn to bring the Marvel Unlimited pick of the week. His selection is New Mutants #98 (1991), the first appearance of Deadpool and Domino(kinda appropriate, huh?). The guys then make their trip to the comic shop with their picks for the week. Mike chooses Uncanny Inhumans #5, Star Wars #16, and Avengers Standoff: Welcome to Pleasant Hill #1. Eric is liking Starbrand and Nightmask #3, Mighty Thor #4, and Star-Lord #4. Kylan fills his bin with Silver Surfer #2, Squadron Supreme #4, and Power Mans and Iron Fist #1!
