The Superhero Show Show #434: The Umbrella Academy

The Superhero Show Show #434
The Umbrella Academy

It’s the season premiere of The Umbrella Academy! Plus X-Men: The Animated Series, the gang from The Superman and Lois tapes, and more!

On an all-new, all-different episode of The Superhero Show Show, Cassie and the Boyz are watching episode #301 of The Umbrella Academy! If you can remember all the way back to season two, the gang finds themselves back home, but home is no longer the Umbrella Academy – it’s the Sparrow Academy? What has Daddy Hargraves gone and done this time? Tune in and listen to the Taste Buds take you on a beat-by-beat journey through the first episode of the season, and their hopes for the rest of season 3. Which of the Taste Buds will stay on and watch, and which ones are ready to bail?

Then they go through all of the other comic-based TV episodes of the week, including The Boys, Superman and Lois, The Flash, Ms Marvel, and a comic book! That’s right, Mike and Ryan are reading and reviewing the last issue of DC’s comic book version of the Arrowverse!

Next, let’s take a trip to X-TASMania, and find out what happened on Sanctuary, Part II! Magneto is dead. Gambit is dead. Or are they? They aren’t. But who will be? Will it be Superhero favorite fudgeboi Fabian Cortez? I for one hope so.

Finally, as if that wasn’t enough show, Ryan and Katelynn sit down with Alison, Bethany, and Michael of the podcast The Superman and Lois Tapes for their thoughts on the second season, and what might happen in the third, all just before the second season finale. I have to say…that sounds like too much show!
