¿How is that this series is more constant than who is who?
I get it. It takes time to search and write. but it's been months.

I have absolutely no control over the Who's Who podcast, but I'll tell Shagg and Rob to get a move on ;).

Unless you mean that thing I sometimes do with Who's Who in Crisis? Then that's my fault for making it seem like it would be a regular series.

I never thought I'd get an in-depth discussion of Bill Foster's cleavage. I'm glad you mentioned his shitty and pointless death during Civil War ... I guess they just wanted to up the body count.

I loved the collective squeal for Fabulous Frog Man; wasn't there a story where he was helping the Avengers fight someone and defeated the bad guy by puking all over him? I can't remember what issue that was, but it pretty much sums up Eugene's career in a nutshell.

I liked the Frankenstein Monster discussion, though it's been a while since I read the book. Have you read the Athena Club books by Theodora Goss ("Strange Case of the Alchemist's Daughter" and "European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman")? The main characters are all women related to Victorian horror literature (Jekyll/Hyde's daughters, Beatrice Rappacini, a cat-woman from the Island of Dr. Moreau, and the female monster from Frankenstein) In this series, the female monster wasn't destroyed, but lived on and encountered the male monster again, then eventually met the aforementioned ladies. It's a pretty cool book series, if you like feminist Victorian horror mash-ups.

That would be Spider-Island: Avengers #1, where he throws up on the spider-powered Flag-Smasher! (Someone was using this issue of OHOTMU.)
