S18:E4 - Quasar No. 5 (1989)

The Absorption Principle

Aug 30, 2021

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée absorb 1989's Quasar no. 5! From the outside, space investigator Quasar appears to have a pretty sweet life. He's an honorary Avenger, he runs a security firm, and his fashion accessories are on point. Unfortunately, like all of us, he's just pretending his life isn't an absolute mess of half-victories and soul-crushing compromises. In reality, Captain America has stuck him on janitorial duty with F-lister Stingray, his firm hasn't gotten a single contract, and now the Absorbing Man has stolen the power of his space bracelets! No wonder Quasar's ghost dad would rather hang out with the talking space log that lives in the Quantum Zone. Wait, what? More like Cray-sar, right?!
