EMP Episode 123: Say No to Stryfe
Individually they were just like those guys who like to hang around the comic book shop and talk comics but together they form the Earth’s Mightiest Podcast! Hailing Hydra since before it was cool. IN THIS EPISODE…From the geometry of Stryfe’s costume to the unsettling nature of the artwork on a book that you SHOULD be reading, the boys go HAM on the Marvel Comics AVENGERS lineup for the month of May, year of our lord 2017. There’s only so long Clint can hold the line on a book that we otherwise don’t need, Uncanny reached it’s climax…so where to now? Ultimate’s paint a pretty ugly picture of a necessary set of evils, and the Champions are still champs. Somebody should make action figures of that team! All this and more in one…or is it two - episodes of the best Avengers-centric podcast this side of Mos Eisley!

A Solid Review Podcast with a 5-Star Theme Song
I listen to Earth's Mightiest Podcast and Earth's Mightiest X-Cast. I do not listen to Merc With A Podcast, so this will not reflect that podcast.
Well worth your time. Well worth starting from the beginning. The early podcasts, while rocky, have mid-show intermission-style skits and sketches that are worth hearing. The early episodes are not bad, just long. Alex, Corwin, and Viet have a very good chemistry when they are on their game, and the subject matter (current Avengers and X-books) is interesting. The show truly lives up to its tagline that it will "protect you from bad books and avenge the books you might have missed." The rotating chair on EMX is very interesting, and Tribe One, the most frequently rotated in host, has very good chemistry with the main three.
Unfortunately, the hosts are not always on their game, perhaps due to the fact that, as family men, they seem to record at a very late hour when it will not affect their family time. Conversations frequently tail off somewhat uncomfortably as they run out of things to say about one book but no one is pushing hard enough on getting to the next one in line.
Finally, it really is a 5-star theme song. I really do enjoy the show, and would like to rate it higher, but one of the very admirable things about Alex, Corwin, and Viet is that they do not soft pedal their ratings on books. They are frank and honest, and books that the hosts' conversation show have a lot to recommend them still get 3s. EMP gets 3.5 Entertaining Hosts.
