Episode #54

The Magnificos have an in-depth discussion on the DC relaunch announcement dubbed DCnU. They’ve a lot to say about it. Though be forewarned, due to technical difficulties, the second half of their talk didn’t make the final cut. We’ll have to relaunch it, I guess?!



  1. A wonderful idea to atract new, younger readers to a billion dollar franchise: make him older. Right!

    By the way, they already announced -although unofficialy- that Batman Beyond and a bunch of other series will indeed continue.

    And also, the Killing Joke is also still canon, at least that`s what Bob Harras said. I donĀ“t know what the hell are they trying to pull there…

    The first podcast I ever hear! Nice, I don`t have any other comic reader friends, so I can sort of imagine I`m with my -american (?)- friends talking about all this stuff.

  2. That was a great cast guys. The points made were awesome. Thanks for validating my thoughts about Morrison’s current state of writing. The Killing Joke, Identity Crisis, Blackest Night, all these stories are supposedly still canon, not sure how that works but sure okay. It’s almost like DC said “Geoff, Jim, since weren’t going to have the two of you relaunch everything. Geoff, all your GL work stays, and Jim, I guess you can bring over some of your Wildstorm stuff too. We have deal? Great.”

    It just feels like a bad idea. I mean, what the hell, number 1s sell so let’s do that to boost sales. Dc, you know what else boosts sales and gets people reading, great stories that anyone can follow. All this talk of of DC’s creative teams doing things different,and in new ways, what ever, we’re getting another freaking Superman origin story in Action Comics, you know, because that was needed. What about the continuity that new readers can’t follow. Simple. Let’s keep all the guys that have been Robin before, while also introducing to new readers that the current Robin in Batman’s evil twisted son. That sure won’t confuse people. But, Dc still wants to use iconic characters that people know, thus Batgirl being Barbara again, meanwhile at the Halls of the Inept, they keep the many Robins.

    Okay , done ranting, again thanks for the cast, you got a new subscriber.

  3. Got a few mistypes in there, but no edit button. ” while also introducing new readers to the current Robin, who is Batman’s evil twisted son.” Fixed that part.

  4. Nataniel and Joe, glad you liked the show. Unfortunately we somehow lost the second half of the episode, but we’ll more than make up for it in the coming weeks. We’ve got some great stuff planned. Thanks for listening!

  5. Rob Liefeld must have seen Jim Lee kill a hooker. It’s the only thing that makes sense.

  6. The thing about Power Girl, is after the original Crisis… She became an anomaly in the DCU… Because there was no longer a Earth 2, and Superman being the lone survivor of Krypton… They kept to to figure out a origin that would satisfy her fan base… Personally I think Infinite Crisis was done just to give Power Girl a origin, lol…

  7. Dan Didio, if you think for a moment if you can make money and get other people to read and buy the comics by not only making them the characters younger but also ruining the suits and their world, your poorly mistaken!

    All your going to do is really upset the fans and kill a tradition that was successful enough to last over 70 years! You can’t just do that!
    It’s like chnaging the colors of the red, white and blue fag of the USA, which is NOT RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
