SSS #471: MPower to the Power of Love

The Superhero Show Show #471

MPower to the Power of Love

It’s the first episode of the new Disney doc MPower, plus more Matt Singer and RIPD, on an all-new Superhero Show Show!

On an all-new, all-different episode of The Superhero Show Show, Cassie and the Boyz are taking a break from The Flash and watching the first episode of MPower, The Women of Black Panther! In the first of four hour long documentaries, The Women of Black Panther introduces audiences to the female characters of Wakanda, and the actresses that play them. The Taste Buds discuss the style of the show, the incredibleness of the actresses, and if any of it was necessary in the first place.

Before that, though, we have a punishment a’comin. Ryan has let down his fellow podcasters, and he must pay. His punishment, as selected by a jury of his peers, is to watch the notorious 2013 flop R.I.P.D.! Directed by professional dingleberry Robert Schwentke, this hardcore MIB rip-off gives us pre-Deadpool Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges as dead ghost cops who police other ghosts that are in our world. Make sense? COOL.

We’ll also run through The Flash on the Pull List, and then Ryan completes his conversation with Matt Singer, where they dive into his two greatest passions: Gymkata and movie-influenced fast food menus!

Follow Matt on twitter @mattsinger and on instagram @superpulse. And pre-order his book about Siskel and Ebert here:

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.
