In which, Andrew, Tracy, and Dude take on the news from SDCC, especially the trailers for new DC movies and the announcement of Brie Larson’s casting as Captain Marvel. They wrap up the episode with a conversation about whether or not the new Star Trek Discovery ship lacks the correct cool factor, and whether Chris Pine will ever play a character that is not Chris Pine.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, or so the old saying goes. While this might be true sometimes, it is just as often the excuse given to justify taking someone else’s ideas and trying to claim them as one’s own. The comic industry is no exception. From the very early days, once a hero started to become popular, it was only a matter of time before someone else was slapping a slightly different costume on an eerily similar creation and packaging it to sell.

After the conversation Andrew takes a few minutes to share convention going tips. Here’s a hint: shoes are a big deal.
