In which, Andrew, Tracy, and Dude reveal that they can actually have an intelligent conversation about a controversial topic, specifically about comic writer Gail Simone’s 1999 musings on why female characters in comics seem to end up violently damaged in order to further the story or provide motivation for their male counterparts. Our heroes break the topic down and look at Gail’s initial conversation starter, and then move into the argument that has been created by various feminists based on that topic. Dude vows to spend the rest of his life–or at least the next few weeks–breaking down the lists of characters who have died in comics to uncover the statistics that may prove or disprove the idea.
