Episode 6: Ironheart
Episode Notes She was never supposed to fly. But this week we're soaring the skies with the Iconic Ironheart--Chicago's own black teen girl supergenius and superhero! To celebrate this month's release of Ironheart Volume 1 (now available wherever you get your books!!), we're discussing Riri Williams and the creative team behind her new solo series from Marvel. But first, we talk about the big MCU news coming out of San Diego and share our thoughts on Phase 4. Then we dive deep into Ironheart, outlining the people and places essential to who Riri is as a person and a superhero. We explore what drives our young hero and what makes her so instantly beloved. We also fangirl over writer Eve L. Ewing, who is truly moving with courage and making the path for Black girls everywhere. Finally, we share our hopes for Ironheart to join the MCU!

Episode 4: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
You can't save everyone. But we can save ourselves after we decided to not talk about a bad movie and talk about a great one instead. This episode, we're talking about Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse which just came out on Netflix. We discuss many different aspects of this movie. Did we really need another Spider-Man movie? How does the world building of Into the Spider-Verse compare to Black Panther? Which character relationships is Mike going to fixate on this week? How amazing is the animation in this movie?

Episode 3: X-Men: Dark Phoenix
We just couldn't control it. We discuss the next X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix. We start with our spoiler-free impressions, then jump into spoiler territory with what we liked and what we didn't like. Did Simon Kinberg redeem himself in his second attempt at adapting the Dark Phoenix Saga? Is Charles a privileged white dude? Is Magneto mediocre? Are men the worst? All those questions and more are answered. Then we discuss X-Men as a whole and how it relates to the Civil Rights movement in America. How does the allegory hold up under basic scrutiny? What does the X-Men really accomplish as it relates to social justice? As always, if you like the show, rate and review us on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Episode 2: See You Yesterday
Episode Notes We talk about the new Netflix time travel movie See You Yesterday. This is a distinctly Black science fiction movie from director and co-writer Stefon Bristol, co-writer Fredrica Bailey, and producer Spike Lee. We discuss the movie, what we liked, and our opinions on several polarizing elements of the film. We examine what it means to be a Black time travel movie: What elements transform this from a movie about time travel with Black characters to a Black time travel movie? We also attempt to place the film in conversation with other time travel movies, recent discussions on Afrofuturism, and portrayals of police brutality in media. Find out more on the Nerd vs Nerd website.
