SSS #470: Javicia Leslie vs the Other Emmy Nominees

The Superhero Show Show #470

Javicia Leslie vs the Other Emmy Nominees

The Flash this week is airing The Mask of the Red Death, Part I, and we’re reviewing the ever-living heck out of it!

On an all-new, all-different episode of The Superhero Show Show, Cassie and the Boyz are watching The Flash! Again! When will there be new shows! Next week? Nope. Hoo boy.

This week’s release is part one of the two-part The Mask of the Red Death. The big bad of the season, Red Death, is finally making her move! And that villain is played by…(spoiler alert?) Javicia Leslie, from TV’s Batwoman! Ryan Wilder – not our Ryan Wilder, but a Ryan Wilder – is trying to convince everyone that Barry Allen is the worst person in every dimension, not just the worst person on television! As her suit of armor goes after Barry, Wilder goes after Iris. You know how much Barry hates it when people go after Iris!

The Taste Buds discuss Leslie’s instantly iconic performance, the hot Rogue-on-Rogue action, and Barry’s favorite brands of bottled water.

Then the gang heads over to XTAZMANIA, because Mojo is back on X-Men: The Animated Series! Longshot winds up on Earth, and starts farting on car seats. Mojo chases after him, and turns the episode into Comedy Central Presents The Roast of the X-Men. The episode has War Wolves, Spiral, Master Domo, a horny Jubilee, and so much more.

Finally, if that wasn’t enough show, Ryan sits down with ScreenCrush editor and Spider-Man book writer Matt Singer. In part one of a two-part conversation, Ryan reveals two of the four elements that make up Singer, including the aforementioned Spider-Man and a certain Austrian actor that they both love.

All of that, and more, on an all-new Superhero Show Show!

Also, don’t forget to:

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit

If you or someone you know needs help, or if you want to get more involved, here are 5 resources:

1. Shout Your Abortion is a campaign to normalize abortion.

2. Don’t Ban Equality is a campaign for companies to take a stand against abortion restrictions.

3. has information about where to find clinics.

4. provides early at-home abortion pills that you can keep in your medicine cabinet. And five.

5. has a collection of these resources and more.
