Legends of the Superheroes

Since I had a special episode posted last week (and if you didn't know about that, you really need to look up The Hammer Strikes! on Facebook and Google+) I thought I'd let you all know my basic idea behind it.

Beyond being an attention grab for my show (which I don't deny that this is) it is also a way for me to explore live action versions of superheroes, or at least characters that first appeared in comic books. With the Marvel Cinematic Universe all the rage right now, I want to take a look back and see where this came from. There will be a high cheese factor on these episodes, simply because of the time period that many of these movies/tv shows were made, but that does not preclude there being gems in there.

Speaking of Marvel, I'm going to specifically skew away from the modern movies, since those are getting enough press already. It's not that I don't like them or am unwilling to talk about them, far from it. But as I've established on The Hammer Podcasts!, I like to look back and see where my love of certain things came from. Also, since I am going to be teaming with other podcasters, all of whom are much more experienced in the medium, I hope to learn a few things for my own use. Plus, I always like to hear different points of view and how others got into the same thing.

If there is a particular show/movie you'd like to see me cover, please feel free to let me know. You can drop me a line at, in the comments here, or on social media. Let me know what you want to hear and I'll shanghai someone more famous than I am see if I can find the appropriate podcaster to team up with.

BTW, if you missed the podcast, you can find it here:

Many thanks once again to Rob Kelly of The Aquaman Shrine for agreeing to be my first guest ever. It's amazing what he has to say, especially when he isn't interrupted. Make sure you check out his site for all the Aquaman you could ever ask for.
