S20:E3 - Peacemaker No. 4 (1988)

Peace of War!

Jan 10, 2022

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée give peace a chance with 1988's Peacemaker no. 4! After purchasing the character from the defunct Charlton Comics, DC published this adventure to help slide him into continuity like sliding John Cena's skull into a chrome bedpan. And what an 80s adventure it is! Christopher Smith, aka Peacemaker, is dedicated to eradicating the threat posed by the nefarious and culturally unacceptable Dr. Tzin Tzin, who hopes to cause chaos at the Berlin Summit! Luckily, Smith has an ace up his sleeve: The hallucinated ghost of his Nazi father is mentally abusing him from beyond the grave, granting him all the bloodlust necessary to defend global freedom! You know, none of this would've been possible if a certain 80s president/conservative godhead hadn't set in motion the closure of certain mental health facilities that could've helped certain toilet-headed crimefighters repair their fractured minds. So make sure to thank the Gipper for your freedom tonight, kids!
