21 Comic Books That Turned Insane Out Of The Blue

21 Comic Books That Turned Insane Out Of The Blue

“Avengers: Infinity War” is like the Super Bowl: either you saw it, or you consciously opted to miss America’s latest biggest cultural event. But football is niche compared to MARVEL MOVIES. They’re the biggest pillar of global entertainment, made by skilled professionals doing their very best work, and here’s the weird fun thing about all that: the comic books themselves started weird, got weirder, and stayed baffling throughout our modern day.

On this week’s episode of The Cracked Podcast, Alex Schmidt is joined by Cracked editor Cyriaque Lamar for a journey through decades of comic book insanity. Find out how Marvel, DC, and independent publishers have cranked out almost a century of baffling storylines and irresponsible canon changes, even as those same characters have conquered TV and film. And go out into your world knowing you live on a planet that once featured Werewolf Captain America, Badminton Champion Batman, and a friendly neighborhood Planned Parenthood Spider-Man.

  1. I want to point out my appreciation for your generosity giving support to people that really need help with your area. Your real dedication to passing the message along had been certainly effective and has really permitted workers like me to arrive at their desired goals. Your interesting help means a lot to me and even more to my colleagues. Thanks a ton; from everyone of us.

  2. The subsequent time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to learn, however I truly thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you may fix in case you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.

  3. I have to show some thanks to this writer for bailing me out of this type of matter. After checking through the internet and finding recommendations which are not beneficial, I was thinking my entire life was over. Living minus the answers to the issues you’ve solved by way of your entire website is a serious case, and the kind that would have in a negative way damaged my career if I hadn’t come across your blog post. Your own understanding and kindness in taking care of a lot of stuff was important. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a point like this. It’s possible to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks for your time very much for your expert and effective help. I will not hesitate to suggest your blog post to any person who would need care on this issue.

  4. I simply could not depart your website before suggesting that I actually enjoyed the usual information a person supply for your guests?
    Is gonna be again steadily in order to check out new
    posts

  5. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
