Today on the 5: I like to take a few chances throughout the year to stop and appreciate the people who have made this show what it is.

From the writer of Blade: Trinity and The Crow: City Of Angels, I can't put much stock in his opinions on cinematic crutches. Those movies were held up with such weak stock it's a miracle they didn't collapse the theater projectors they ran through.

I also appreciate the several gold nuggets you guys have provided throughout your weird audio adventures. However you guys should network more with other podcasts (I came from the MU crosspolination otherwise I would never have known about you two weird geek hermits...)

Now, in other acrimonious news, it would be greatly appreciated if both of you guys could metaphorically piss and poop on David S. Goyer for his recent quote on Superman killing Zod,

"This is one area, and I've written comic books as well and this is where I disagree with some of my fellow comic book writers - 'Superman doesn't kill'. It's a rule that exists outside of the narrative and I just don't believe in rules like that. I believe when you're writing film or television, you can't rely on a crutch or rule that exists outside of the narrative of the film."


It is not a crutch, it is an intentional moral boundary role model to limit corruption from absolute power.

Batman and Superman are bombastic extrapolated metaphors/role models not expected to comply with the war on terror but to comply with a voluntary distance from absolute power corrupting everything. Killing the first one means a never ending list. Batman and Superman are an extrapolation of our own collective secular morality expected to respect due legal process not to become an executioner-lynch mob.

Humble. Looking forward to the next MU/Ozone team up. Need to make MU as huge as possible, I want that Jet-ski.
