S15:E4 - Ms. Marvel No. 5 (1977)

Bridge of No Return

Jan 31, 2021

This time on the Couch: Breaker, breaker, 1-9! Mike, James, and Shée are haulin' a big rig loaded up with Ms. Marvel no. 5! In the 1970s, Marvel launched an exciting new hero designed to give young female readers someone to look up to, and then clothed her in a few random scraps of fabric and had her fight a monster truck. Sure, maybe Ms. Marvel never became the feminist icon some hoped she would be, but she did jackknife a semi carrying dangerous chemicals and immediately got into a vicious brawl with an Avenger, so she can hang with the rest of the raging psychopaths we call comic book superheroes any day.
