The Shortbox returns, and this one is a doozy. Remember the Ultimate Universe? Y'know, Marvel's attempt to re-imagine and re-establish their core characters for a new and modern audience? Yeah cool right. Remember when they decided to just kill them all in the most edgelordiest fashion? Well, if you didn't make sure to listen to this episode as we groan through our breakdown of Ultimatum by Jeph Loeb and David Finch.
Another week, another episode of Matt complaining about the state of Marvel comics. We know, you’re sick of him complaining but it makes Tyler laugh so it just can’t be stopped. That’s not to say comics weren’t enjoyed this week! Despite an Emma Frost heel change and more talking heads, we got an appearance by the Tolkein Avengers. On top of that, Matt and Tyler give a step-by-step process on how to call in to Aquafina and bring much needed change to America. Don’t understand? Well, you’ll just have to listen!
