oHOTmu or NOT Ep.48: Daimon Hellstrom to Hercules

The son of the literal Satan. An early humor and romance heroine. A golden beauty. The Prince of Power. Which are hot and which are not? The Girls collectively known as the Canadian Hot Squad make that determination. See if you agree.

Featuring permanent panelists Isabel, Nathalie, Josée, Amélie and Shotgun.

Yay! A perfect birthday gift for me, a new oHOTmu episode to listen to!

Love the comments on the Hellstrom family, and really hoping you touch on Daimon's 90s look (the Warren Ellis/Leonard Manco run) when you get to your next special.

Her: Hot, but forgettable. Perfect description. No one's really done anything interesting with Her that I can recall.

I really wish Hercules had used the sash and skirt for the main pic. It sounded like the ladies agreed with me. The "He-Man" comment from Siskoid was perfect.

Off-topic: I know they have you for this sort of thing, but I'm curious if (as non-comic readers for the most part), any of the oHOTmu women have a question about comics that they would like answered on a future episode of my show. As comics-adjacent people, is there anything that they've heard about and are curious to know more about but haven't gotten around to asking you about yet?

That's right! Happy birthday!

(I'll ask about Geektown.)

Amelie has questions, she says, but only if she can be on the line to ask them and hear them answered.

Plainly looking to be on her 10th podcast show.

That seems like something that could be arranged, as long as I have the question(s) ahead of time, to give me time to do any necessary research...I'd prefer the episode to not end up me saying "Huh. Good question...Next question?" a bunch of times.

I understand. Not counting my own, I've shown up on episodes of five different podcasts so far, and always looking to expand that.

Great episode, as always. I always liked Hellcat in the Defenders; her friendship with Valkyrie was really well done ... it felt real. Nice to see her on Jessica Jones, although I don't like what they did to her character.

Her went through a lot of names: you mentioned Paragon and Ayesha, and I think she was also known as Kismet for a while. I don't think the writers had any clue what to do with her.

you're right about Byrne's faces, but then you could say the same about Kirby, Ditko, Kane, Saviuk, and numerous others.

Byrne was my go-to here because he's got his fingerprints all over OHOTMU.
