S12:E3 - The Mighty Crusaders Vol. 2, No. 9 (1984)
Old Legends Never Die
This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée vote to defund superheroes after reading the Mighty Crusaders no. 9! Some human flagpole who calls himself the Shield has straight-up murdered a jewel thief but sees no issue with this because he's from the '40s, when that kind of thing was totally acceptable. Unfortunately, it's now the go-go '80s, and vigilantism has been criminalized. Hey pal, you wanna use excessive force with absolutely no consequences, you join the police force like an honest citizen! Luckily, the Shield has friends in high places who will stop at nothing to keep him from being held responsible for his actions. Plus, meet the Brain Emperor, a villain so proud of his brain that he makes sure it's visible at all times, which is definitely not sanitary.
