Main Topic

The continuity conundrum is that Marvel and DC continuity is convoluted and confusing.

Solutions to the continuity conundrum

  • Dave: Scrap the DC continuity
  • Matt: Reduce number of Marvel titles, limit characters to one title
  • Ben: Scrap the continuities, set a time limit of e.g. 10 years with the intent of having the story end and starting over again at the end

Green Lantern: Rebirth was released in 2004, not 1994.

Superhero comic recommendations

  • Dave: All-Star Superman, Green Lantern: Rebirth, Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps War, Identity Crisis
  • Matt: Kraven's Last Hunt (Spider-Man), Civil War, Ultimate Spider-Man, House of M
  • Ben: Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men

Ben is doing pastoral counseling over Google Chat while recording


If they get enough support, they will quit their jobs and go full time, releasing 1-hour episodes 5 days a week


Firefly theme singalong Best singalong in SFC history

Archivist Note

Matt arguing that Marvel continuity has never had a crisis is a semantics game. For example, Heroes Reborn is totally a crisis, even though it was branded as a "rebirth"
