Hey Folks, the Part Time Podcast is back with another episode, our season 2 Premiere. In this episode we cover a variety of topics from this week’s news and the upcoming slate of our favorite and not so favorite TV shows.
- The Flash- Returning January 19th
- Agent Carter- Returning January 19th
- Arrow- Returning January 20th
- Legends of Tomorrow- Premiering January 21
- DareDevil- Returning March 18th
The meat of the Podcast however centers on our first (of many, hopefully) superhero drafts. In this, we are taking the basic plot line of a non-comic book film, and inserting a team of superheroes from both Marvel and DC.
The Premise: Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
Quickly, a synopsis from the actual film: "With the IMF now disbanded and Ethan Hunt out in the cold, a new threat -- called the Syndicate -- soon emerges. The Syndicate is a network of highly skilled operatives who are dedicated to establishing a new world order via an escalating series of terrorist attacks. Faced with what may be the most impossible mission yet, Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with Ilsa Faust, a disavowed British agent who may or may not be a member of this deadly rogue nation"
Ethan Hunt has been injured and is not capable of taking part in the action of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. Ethan must hire a team of superheroes to prove that the syndicate exists and take them out.
The Draft Results
- Batman- The ultimate detective, leader, financer
- Luke Cage- Bulletproof, front line combat
- Green Arrow- Sharpshooter, financer
- Oracle- Tech/hacking, behind the scenes help
- Daredevil- Stealth, combat, and lawyer just in case things go bad.
- Dick Grayson- Super spy/Ethan Hunt Type
- Deadpool- 4th wall breaker, wild card, ninja
- Snake Eyes- Stealthy ninja
- Forge- Tech/Hacking, expertise
- The Flash- Retrieves lost items, can get in and out with no issue, can run through solid matter
