S20:E1 - Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future No. 1 (1988)
A Summoning of Thunder
This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée put a bow on 2021 with Captain Power and the Laser Gun Boys or Whatever! For the brave few who managed to get through the relentless trainwreck of a title, Continuity Comics' adaptation of the short-lived Captain Power tv show offered a glimpse into a grim future ruled by evil robots, constant war, and Amazon auto-subscriptions that you forget about until they've already shipped! Okay, so not exactly fresh terrain for the Couch, but what better way to wrap up a year that's felt like nothing more than a tired rehash of the last, equally terrible year than with a comic book you'd swear has been covered dozens of times already? So strap on all your non-functional NES accessories and blast a hole into 2022 with the podcast that was already prepping you for doomsday anyway!
