  1. um, actually… alien legion is from the marvel comics epic line from the late 1980’s through the early 90’s. i do belive the title was picked up by dark horse in the 90’s after being canceled by Marvel, so you’re half right.


    great episode, btw! 🙂

  2. I am not an animal hater, but I am with Chris on this.

    Growing up, my family had minimally one cat and one dog, sometimes more. It was always horrible cleaning up after them or finding them in my long boxes clawing through my comics and Mad Magazines.

    When I was in my teens, I vowed I would never have a dog, cat, marmoset, donkey or otherwise.

    Now I have a seven month old, so it’s a wash.

  3. I liked the Street Fighter movie better when it was called Bloodsport and was about Frank Dux. Seriously though, I would bet all the dollars that the reason SF:TM focused on Guile is because Van Damme as Guile is the exact same character as Van Damme as Frank Dux.

  4. “For me, it was Tuesday.” Beautiful.

    Street Fighter has the dubious honor of being my second favorite G.I. Joe movie.

    Real talk: That scene where they’re about to have a potentially awesome cage fight with Vega but then the UN army invades and arrests everyone? The ultimate cinematic troll.
