Super Hero Speak – #136: Star Wars Revenge of the Plumbing Technician

This is it, Super Hero Speak reviews Star Wars The Force Awakens. An episode so big the guys had to bring in their new partner in crime Zack Howe to help with this one. The guys rate, review and discuss the biggest block buster of 2015. They discuss burning questions like, how does a janitor go toe to toe with a Knight of Ren? Is Rey a Mary Sue or is the internet filled with sexist bastards? Why do the bad guys keep building giant space lasers that get easily destroyed? This in and so much more in Star Wars Revenge of the Sanitation Technician. Be warned the SPOILERS are heavy in this one. Enjoy!

Not only is Eric Cooper a very talented author, he’s also a very vocal equal rights advocate. So this week Dave and Ben sit down with Eric and talk about his Change.org petition to demand all the different comic book conventions feature more diversity. The audience is growing and becoming more diverse. The industry is slowly doing the same, it’s time for the cons to reflect that.
