Super Heroes – Iron Man, Superman, Thor, Captain America – Whether you love them or hate them, super heroes are abound in today’s pop culture – and they are big business. But what is it about super heroes that makes us love or hate them so much?
Beginning with Iron Man 3 we talk about the most recent wave of Super Hero movies – What we liked, what we didn’t, and what we want to see in feature films. Joining us for this episode are Rick Shea, owner of Famous Faces and Funnies (the largest comic shop on the space coast), and Actor/Comedian/Improviser and Comic Book nerd extraordinaire Fawad Siddiqui. They’ll be giving us their insights as to how the source material for these super hero stores come in to play.
So check out the video below where at times, we get a bit rowdy but we all have a good time. Let us know what you think of these movies and what we have to say about them in the comments below. You may just win a pair of IMAX tickets to see Guardians of the Galaxy!

Given the rapid, almost Hulk-like growth of the film market in that country over the past few years, Avengers director Joss Whedon is half-expecting to get a call any day now asking whether he can set part of the superhero sequel in a Chinese locale. “I’m working on the script right now, and if someone came to me and said, ‘We’re looking into doing a chunk of this in China’—well, I’d have to think about it,” Whedon says. “China is on my radar.
