The Superhero Show Show #445

Stargirl's Frenemies and X-Men: The Animated Series!


It's the second episode of Stargirl, a Wolverine-centric XTAS, and the conclusion of the conversation with None of My Friends Like Comics, on an all-new Superhero Show Show!

On an all-new, all-different episode of The Superhero Show Show, the whole gang is back, and Cassie is leading her fellow Taste Buds through a breakdown of Stargirl: Season 3! There has been a murder, and now everyone is a suspect, although some far more than others. The Friends all place bets on who they think the killer of the Gambler is, who they know it isn't, and everything in between. As for the rest of the show, is season 3 living up to the highs of the first two? Tune in and find out.

The Taste Buds also travel to XTAZMANIA to watch a season 4 episode called Lotus and the Steel! Wolverine takes yet another break for the X-Men. This time, he's heading back to Japan to help a village that has helped him in the past. The village is being attacked by a gang of bikers, and it's up to Logan to take them out! Well...Logan, and the children of the village, who set-up high-tech traps involving holes and fish.

Finally, Ryan sits down with Nick from None of My Friends Like Comics for one last time as they discuss keeping up with comics and pull lists, and the state of comic book-based television today. Listen to Nick's show 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 donations4abortion.com

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. Abortion.cafe has information about where to find clinics.

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