00:03:11   away my strategy now also joining us are [TS]

00:03:13   a couple of judges who have not been [TS]

00:03:14   judged before in fact they have very [TS]

00:03:16   carefully avoided being on the summer [TS]

00:03:19   superhero spectacular and a clever and [TS]

00:03:22   somehow carefully because they're now [TS]

00:03:24   exactly right not enough because we [TS]

00:03:26   caught them and we made them be here [TS]

00:03:28   David lure hello [TS]

00:03:30   I i was gonna say you figured out my [TS]

00:03:32   strategy yeah I know and then here you [TS]

00:03:34   are [TS]

00:03:35   I had the good sense to stay away until [TS]

00:03:37   today I know I don't know I am shocked [TS]

00:03:39   that you're here and Erica and sign [TS]

00:03:40   similarly had the good sense to not be [TS]

00:03:42   on this train wreck [TS]

00:03:43   until now this was a moment of weakness [TS]

00:03:46   yeah well youryour hopped up on code [TS]

00:03:48   it'll can I am literally hopped up on [TS]

00:03:50   codeine and very ill so this will be [TS]

00:03:52   great [TS]

00:03:52   encoding hops you up I'm just saying i'm [TS]

00:03:56   not an expert i'm not a doctor i don't [TS]

00:03:58   have this tradition so you know sobriety [TS]

00:04:00   is not a hallmark of our our judges and [TS]

00:04:02   so let us begin with a with a matchup is [TS]

00:04:06   so let me explain how this round the [TS]

00:04:07   round of eight is going to work i asked [TS]

00:04:08   listeners to submit using a Google Form [TS]

00:04:10   some non doomsday scenarios that would [TS]

00:04:12   have to be pondered and responded to by [TS]

00:04:15   our heroes and I've actually asked our [TS]

00:04:18   advocates to explain in essentially tell [TS]

00:04:21   us a little bit of a story about how [TS]

00:04:23   their hero would react to these [TS]

00:04:24   scenarios scenarios that were randomly [TS]

00:04:26   selected from a list generated by [TS]

00:04:28   listeners so let's move on to the first [TS]

00:04:31   matchup Doctor Strange and the flash [TS]

00:04:34   and i'm going to i'm going to tell you [TS]

00:04:36   what the scenario was and then your [TS]

00:04:38   advocates will tell you how their he [TS]

00:04:40   responded if that makes any sense [TS]

00:04:42   chip you were speaking for Doctor [TS]

00:04:44   Strange and here is your scenario and [TS]

00:04:48   you've been given this ahead of time is [TS]

00:04:49   from mr. Gary and it says the singer has [TS]

00:04:53   taken the city hostage promising to blow [TS]

00:04:55   up an orphanage unless our hero appears [TS]

00:04:57   on America's Got voice and sings a [TS]

00:05:00   heartfelt tradition of radiohead's creep [TS]

00:05:02   that will win over the judges what does [TS]

00:05:05   dr. strange do chip dr. strange [TS]

00:05:09   teleports into the real world and kills [TS]

00:05:11   Gary that seems not heroic [TS]

00:05:15   that's not then and then he takes [TS]

00:05:17   another shot at Jason Snell for telling [TS]

00:05:20   the world that I was given this in [TS]

00:05:23   advance which means that I've lost all [TS]

00:05:24   deniability [TS]

00:05:25   then what is he doing ok so dr. strange [TS]

00:05:31   has all of these mystical artifacts that [TS]

00:05:33   SB fits the sorcerer supreme so he would [TS]

00:05:37   go to the orb of agamotto in the chamber [TS]

00:05:39   of shadows in his sanctum Santorum no no [TS]

00:05:42   not syncing Santorum that's a that's a [TS]

00:06:03   amulet the eye of agamotto to probe [TS]

00:06:06   Hammonds mind and understand the nuances [TS]

00:06:08   the subtleties of the song the subtle [TS]

00:07:08   magic very nice very nice well done [TS]

00:07:13   we're going to move on to the [TS]

00:07:15   competition the flash D'Antoni I don't [TS]

00:07:17   know how you want to handle this you're [TS]

00:07:18   going to be answering scenario from [TS]

00:07:20   listener Michael answer in unison is it [TS]

00:07:23   is what one of you should be Wally and [TS]

00:07:25   one of you should know that we've got [TS]

00:07:26   this repair we're gonna do every other [TS]

00:07:27   word alright good good at work so listen [TS]

00:07:30   we had a late lay down a baseline here [TS]

00:07:32   is ready mr. Michael scenario mr. [TS]

00:07:35   Michael scenario is against randomly [TS]

00:07:37   selected a serial killer is picking off [TS]

00:07:39   seemingly random citizens in elaborate [TS]

00:07:41   deathtraps themed around Looney Tunes [TS]

00:07:44   shorts another serial killer [TS]

00:07:48   you know I feel like that might be a [TS]

00:07:51   future upcoming episode of the flash [TS]

00:07:53   right now Michael Patterson remind our [TS]

00:07:55   little scary credit for that yeah listen [TS]

00:07:57   to Michael you're you're either a [TS]

00:07:59   aspiring writer or an aspiring serial [TS]

00:08:01   killer or both right anymore or Looney [TS]

00:08:03   tune your fine line so this is this [TS]

00:08:06   scenario seems almost kind of like [TS]

00:08:08   cherry picture for the flash by tonight [TS]

00:08:11   I tell you it's random but when it came [TS]

00:08:12   up i thought oh that's perfect [TS]

00:08:14   well it works out just perfectly because [TS]

00:08:16   it sounds like you know we don't know [TS]

00:08:18   what serial killer this might be but it [TS]

00:08:20   sure sounds like it could be the [TS]

00:08:22   trickster mom there are other you know [TS]

00:08:25   DC themed on good people who do things [TS]

00:08:27   like like that there's the toy maker who [TS]

00:08:30   does stuff with toys [TS]

00:08:32   there's the Mad Bomber and Batman who [TS]

00:08:34   uses remote control cars that have [TS]

00:08:35   explosives there's a lot of toyota hi [TS]

00:08:37   jinx the ability not forget coyote man [TS]

00:08:40   also a real Joker but yeah there's [TS]

00:08:43   there's a couple but you know it seems [TS]

00:08:45   like the first thing you would really [TS]

00:08:46   want to do if someone is doing things at [TS]

00:08:48   random as you want to find that it's not [TS]

00:08:49   at random [TS]

00:08:50   it's a pattern and so what you probably [TS]

00:08:52   need to do is sit down and watch all the [TS]

00:08:54   looney tunes and it would sure be great [TS]

00:08:56   if you have the ability to do that [TS]

00:08:57   that i would say some kind of speed that [TS]

00:09:00   is super like super speed ability which [TS]

00:09:03   the flash can do so he could I don't [TS]

00:09:05   know if they have a blockbuster in [TS]

00:09:06   Central City so maybe he goes to the [TS]

00:09:08   library and he watches the entire [TS]

00:09:10   limitations archive in a blink of an eye [TS]

00:09:12   and is able to figure out what's going [TS]

00:09:14   to happen next [TS]

00:09:15   maybe then has to go to you know every [TS]

00:09:17   anvil dealership in Central City and and [TS]

00:09:19   figure out who's been selling anvils and [TS]

00:09:21   rockets and whatnot but one way or the [TS]

00:09:24   other he's gonna be able to do the [TS]

00:09:25   detective work necessary and do it at [TS]

00:09:28   super speed to figure out who was at [TS]

00:09:31   work and no doubt go in and fight them [TS]

00:09:33   in some kind of warehouse and they'll [TS]

00:09:34   probably be kind of a road runner wile e [TS]

00:09:36   coyote reference in fire da fight and [TS]

00:09:40   the flash mystery Road Runner because [TS]

00:09:42   he's going to win [TS]

00:09:42   also he's fast I hope the serial killer [TS]

00:09:45   doesn't paint the shape of a hole in a [TS]

00:09:47   wall and have the Flash run into it [TS]

00:09:49   because that I feel like maybe the final [TS]

00:09:50   do that I I'm going around in my wallet [TS]

00:09:53   right if you like where exactly is my [TS]

00:09:56   case he's prepared for literally every [TS]

00:09:58   eventualities that a could be thrown at [TS]

00:10:00   him as a looney tunes character he can [TS]

00:10:02   phase through things he can time-travel [TS]

00:10:03   back and like make sure that you know he [TS]

00:10:05   didn't if he did slip up at one point [TS]

00:10:07   that he can correct that he obviously of [TS]

00:10:10   course as Barry Allen has the scientific [TS]

00:10:13   skills necessary you know as a as a [TS]

00:10:15   forensic investigator to sort of figure [TS]

00:10:17   out with this person is as Tony allege [TS]

00:10:19   that so he could you actually track down [TS]

00:10:21   this villain so I think you know [TS]

00:10:23   information the the flash run really [TS]

00:10:26   fast [TS]

00:10:26   he's got the supporting cisco how fast [TS]

00:10:28   you have to run to keep running off of a [TS]

00:10:29   cliff and he'll be like I don't know [TS]

00:10:31   Barry run really fast with me and we'll [TS]

00:10:33   keep ya i believe the only correct [TS]

00:10:35   answer is faster than you've ever run [TS]

00:10:36   before [TS]

00:10:37   alright um those are excellent scenarios [TS]

00:10:39   and now i'm going to turn into our are [TS]

00:10:41   our judges I David let's start with you [TS]

00:10:44   what are your thoughts about Doctor [TS]

00:10:46   Strange and the flash [TS]

00:10:48   well i mean i have to say was kinda [TS]

00:10:50   hoping they would both have to face the [TS]

00:10:51   same scenario now that would be a little [TS]

00:10:53   easier to be up to way this is not this [TS]

00:10:56   is not to make IC for you this is [TS]

00:10:58   nothing I swear I know it's finally [TS]

00:11:00   David this is serious i would hope that [TS]

00:11:03   STAR Labs has all of the Looney Tunes [TS]

00:11:05   already stored themselves because you [TS]

00:11:08   know you gotta you gotta have something [TS]

00:11:10   to do [TS]

00:11:10   so you know hopefully he would save time [TS]

00:11:12   even more time that way but you know it [TS]

00:11:16   kind of comes down to he's really fast [TS]

00:11:18   whereas Doctor Strange he's got to [TS]

00:11:22   somehow manage the singing competition [TS]

00:11:25   and hypnotize everyone in the audience [TS]

00:11:27   and the judges and you know save [TS]

00:11:29   everyone in the orphanage [TS]

00:11:31   I'm kind of leaning towards dr. strange [TS]

00:11:34   did we mention that Barry Allen his [TS]

00:11:36   heart stopped we put that out as well [TS]

00:11:39   you gotta live doctor strange has a [TS]

00:11:42   stupid mustache Barry Allen's got heart [TS]

00:11:45   all right Erica what do you think well [TS]

00:11:47   at the beginning of that dr. strange [TS]

00:11:50   tirade I was actually ready to throw [TS]

00:11:51   Doctor Strange right to the Wolves 4444 [TS]

00:11:55   chips of possibility of killing poor [TS]

00:11:57   Gary who came up with this scenario [TS]

00:11:59   because i think it is the greatest video [TS]

00:12:01   ever [TS]

00:12:01   and I'll of radiohead's creep but after [TS]

00:12:06   hearing after hearing all of the other [TS]

00:12:08   things I i love the idea that dr. [TS]

00:12:10   strange would really try to to get to [TS]

00:12:12   the heart of the song and break it down [TS]

00:12:14   and and discover its meaning i think [TS]

00:12:16   that the a great first step and then we [TS]

00:12:18   had to mention of john barrowman no [TS]

00:12:21   problem area [TS]

00:12:26   hey I like to update my argument for [TS]

00:12:28   later huh haha no me [TS]

00:12:32   we are good with the charity apart i do [TS]

00:12:34   like the idea of the flash doing doing [TS]

00:12:35   the detective work I feel like that's a [TS]

00:12:37   very sort of similar thing to what we've [TS]

00:12:39   got on the doctor strange side it's a [TS]

00:12:40   you know breaking down the song breaking [TS]

00:12:43   down the clues but I I don't know I yeah [TS]

00:12:48   Barry may have heart but I guess I I [TS]

00:12:51   always a go for the mind [TS]

00:12:53   so in this case who I'm with david i-i [TS]

00:12:55   think i like the doctor strange and i [TS]

00:12:58   would say that if he's watching every [TS]

00:13:00   Mooney tuned to figure it out he could [TS]

00:13:02   save time by cutting out all the [TS]

00:13:04   repetitive ones so he's wasting a lot of [TS]

00:13:06   his time he's doing in super speed that [TS]

00:13:10   we always ask if the video equipment is [TS]

00:13:12   capable of playing back and super speeds [TS]

00:13:14   everything you need something very [TS]

00:13:15   special and fancy which was not [TS]

00:13:16   mentioned by our advocate and style he [TS]

00:13:19   just he takes the DVD and he just spins [TS]

00:13:21   it looks at it with his eyes [TS]

00:13:22   that's that I'm just sitting here [TS]

00:13:23   slack-jawed y'all Doctor Strange is [TS]

00:13:25   moving on and chip is going to stay up [TS]

00:13:27   later after strange happy birthday to [TS]

00:13:30   you happy birthday champ [TS]

00:13:32   ah dr. streib silence order in this [TS]

00:13:38   court order in this Court [TS]

00:13:40   we're going to move on to a matchup [TS]

00:13:42   between Batman argued by Tony sindelar [TS]

00:13:47   against Wonder Woman argued by Lisa [TS]

00:13:49   Schmeisser we'll start with we'll start [TS]

00:13:51   with Lisa since wonder woman is the [TS]

00:13:54   number two seed Batman the number ones [TS]

00:13:55   have strong matchup the one versus to [TS]

00:13:58   hear Lisa your scenario is from listener [TS]

00:14:00   Drew who says a subway train has fallen [TS]

00:14:04   into a sinkhole and is slowly sinking [TS]

00:14:06   into a subterranean Lake time and oxygen [TS]

00:14:10   are running out elsewhere wonder what we [TS]

00:14:13   do i think one would tell julie has to [TS]

00:14:16   do his own physics homework because this [TS]

00:14:20   reads like a word problem to me another [TS]

00:14:21   scenario victims of wash our phones are [TS]

00:14:24   working aren't they all [TS]

00:14:27   you don't get you don't get to be number [TS]

00:14:29   two but now so bearing in mind sinkholes [TS]

00:14:34   are created by some collapse of the [TS]

00:14:38   surface layer some sort of dissolution [TS]

00:14:40   or basic what happens is the ground is [TS]

00:14:44   kinda softly underneath you so the lake [TS]

00:14:45   makes perfect sense [TS]

00:14:47   the water is both necessary and [TS]

00:14:49   threatening because the water slows the [TS]

00:14:51   acceleration of the train and keeps it [TS]

00:14:54   from crashing hard into a hard surface [TS]

00:14:56   however the water also hurts the oxygen [TS]

00:14:59   now again I'm laying up the word problem [TS]

00:15:03   here drew so pay attention when you have [TS]

00:15:04   to start reading those equations and [TS]

00:15:06   showing your work for class now bearing [TS]

00:15:09   in mind that wonderful men received it [TS]

00:15:12   but little flowers as blessings for the [TS]

00:15:14   Olympic deities and she now has like the [TS]

00:15:16   mind of Pallas Athena and has wisdom and [TS]

00:15:19   intelligence and military prowess and [TS]

00:15:21   she has the [TS]

00:15:22   sisterhood of fire thanks to Hestia and [TS]

00:15:25   things like that and she can and and and [TS]

00:15:27   Hermes got in on the action and Diana [TS]

00:15:29   can now fly at approximately half the [TS]

00:15:31   speed of light [TS]

00:15:32   what she's going to do first is work on [TS]

00:15:36   finding a way to drain the lake so I [TS]

00:15:38   think she's going to take an empty [TS]

00:15:39   subway booth or something else that she [TS]

00:15:41   can then fly to the bottom of Lake and [TS]

00:15:44   uses a projectile to create a whole the [TS]

00:15:47   lake will begin to drain because it will [TS]

00:15:49   have an area at which the water can [TS]

00:15:50   rapidly vortex out while it does that [TS]

00:15:53   Diana will swim her way back up to the [TS]

00:15:54   surface [TS]

00:15:55   she'll lasso the train with her lasso of [TS]

00:15:57   truth shall pull it back down from the [TS]

00:15:59   breach potential have a firm talking to [TS]

00:16:01   with any and all transportation [TS]

00:16:02   commissioners about why they are running [TS]

00:16:04   heavily to use public transportation / g [TS]

00:16:06   logically unstable areas very nice it is [TS]

00:16:09   because these were all selected randomly [TS]

00:16:11   you got two days the natural disaster [TS]

00:16:13   which is which is a little different [TS]

00:16:15   than a than a supervillain which i think [TS]

00:16:16   is very interesting [TS]

00:16:17   thank you Tony we're going to go to you [TS]

00:16:20   with that man your scenario comes from [TS]

00:16:21   listener keith i will read listener case [TS]

00:16:24   scenario now it's a little bit a [TS]

00:16:26   detailed but that's okay i love studio [TS]

00:16:30   band is very big on attention to detail [TS]

00:16:32   here it is midnight the late-night [TS]

00:16:34   talk-show cuts to a special news [TS]

00:16:36   bulletin [TS]

00:16:37   while flying back from a diplomatic [TS]

00:16:38   mission in the Middle East Air Force One [TS]

00:16:40   has mysteriously disappeared mid flight [TS]

00:16:42   originally I thought this was the entire [TS]

00:16:44   scenario only about 30 minutes later did [TS]

00:16:47   I find and send Tony the second portion [TS]

00:16:49   of it which reads several hours pass [TS]

00:16:52   from NASA emerges that reveals the plane [TS]

00:16:57   has been spotted on the moon [TS]

00:17:00   how does our hero help rescue the [TS]

00:17:02   president from his lunar prison so [TS]

00:17:06   Batman's home turf is is Gotham but he's [TS]

00:17:11   regularly made space kind of part of his [TS]

00:17:13   jurisdiction right i mean there's even [TS]

00:17:15   the Justice League Watchtower which is [TS]

00:17:18   the they're orbiting space station has [TS]

00:17:19   been referred to as you know just a [TS]

00:17:21   minor blip in the waynetech discussion [TS]

00:17:23   discretionary research budget which is [TS]

00:17:25   worrisome from an economic standpoint [TS]

00:17:27   but you know he he probably be rather [TS]

00:17:30   moping around [TS]

00:17:31   open the back alleys of Gotham but when [TS]

00:17:33   air force one goes missing you strap on [TS]

00:17:35   your space battle armor you jump in your [TS]

00:17:37   bat spaceship and you go to the moon [TS]

00:17:38   that's what you do well that's what [TS]

00:17:40   Batman does at least when you get to the [TS]

00:17:42   moon you scan that moon you find the [TS]

00:17:45   President and whatever supervillain is [TS]

00:17:47   crazy enough to kidnap the president and [TS]

00:17:50   take him to the moon [TS]

00:17:51   i did some research surprisingly not [TS]

00:17:53   very many or as far as I don't know moon [TS]

00:17:55   theme villainous in the DC Universe [TS]

00:17:57   there's muna but he's not that different [TS]

00:18:00   universe also not gonna be a hero [TS]

00:18:03   so so technically i get to the moon and [TS]

00:18:07   getting very good at stake here so he [TS]

00:18:12   gets in the middle invitation [TS]

00:18:13   got it yeah i mean the the thing here is [TS]

00:18:16   Batman is really that the Batman motto [TS]

00:18:19   be prepared [TS]

00:18:20   he has the accessories that will will [TS]

00:18:22   take you to really wherever you've got [TS]

00:18:23   he's got he's got a car he's got a [TS]

00:18:26   helicopter he's gotta jet [TS]

00:18:28   he's got a boat that sometimes also a [TS]

00:18:29   submarine and he has a spaceship / [TS]

00:18:32   rocket that occasionally appears in the [TS]

00:18:33   comics so he's ready to go wherever you [TS]

00:18:35   need to go if they can make money [TS]

00:18:37   selling a toy version of it Batman has [TS]

00:18:39   it and he's got an invasion and it's [TS]

00:18:40   ready to rock [TS]

00:18:41   I think that's how he gets the [TS]

00:18:42   discretionary budget for we probably he [TS]

00:18:44   probably has two spaceships he has one [TS]

00:18:46   spaceship he takes up to the space [TS]

00:18:48   station and then like another nicer one [TS]

00:18:49   that takes from there it's like I don't [TS]

00:18:51   like taking that one into orbit it gets [TS]

00:18:53   dirty so he takes that one he goes to [TS]

00:18:55   the mood he finds out who has been [TS]

00:18:57   stupid enough to kidnap the president [TS]

00:18:59   any beats the crap out of them as Batman [TS]

00:19:01   does and then he takes them back home [TS]

00:19:02   and he still got plenty of time and he [TS]

00:19:04   read tonight's little note card to moon [TS]

00:19:06   night say even you don't get called for [TS]

00:19:07   moon related emergency [TS]

00:19:09   I'm haha sure yeah [TS]

00:19:13   yes they have done to get the job done i [TS]

00:19:16   think that's important [TS]

00:19:17   alright yeah we heard some scenarios for [TS]

00:19:20   Batman and Wonder Woman good stuff Erica [TS]

00:19:23   what are your thoughts [TS]

00:19:24   okay you guys I love Wonder Woman she's [TS]

00:19:27   probably the only superhero that I have [TS]

00:19:29   any sort of feelings for whatsoever but [TS]

00:19:32   i'm a little iffy on her plan to just [TS]

00:19:34   you know the bust a hole in the bottom [TS]

00:19:36   of a lake in quote-unquote train it i [TS]

00:19:38   don't know that that necessarily is [TS]

00:19:40   going to work in every case so I [TS]

00:19:44   and i really like the idea of Batman [TS]

00:19:46   even though I'm not not the hugest [TS]

00:19:47   Batman fan that he has the gadget that's [TS]

00:19:51   needed for all of up for all these [TS]

00:19:53   spacefaring things I just feel like [TS]

00:19:56   that's a it's a solid plan and i can [TS]

00:19:57   very much see Batman getting the job [TS]

00:19:59   done so i will for Batman this time [TS]

00:20:01   alright David sorry Wonder Woman yeah i [TS]

00:20:04   would hope Batman would be smart enough [TS]

00:20:06   to call his friend Clark who could [TS]

00:20:08   actually go and handle everything on the [TS]

00:20:09   moon really easily without any gadgets [TS]

00:20:12   green lantern but Batman is he's not [TS]

00:20:14   he's not really that is why no no this [TS]

00:20:16   is this is his job those other guys are [TS]

00:20:18   busy but also its Air Force One it's the [TS]

00:20:21   president we have a vice-president [TS]

00:20:23   wonder one's actually saving citizens [TS]

00:20:26   he's saving a politician who cares [TS]

00:20:29   yeah like there's one enters of a [TS]

00:20:32   scenario i was given and not one over [TS]

00:20:35   here at scenario well yeah but where did [TS]

00:20:37   she [TS]

00:20:38   but wonder woman is whether we did her [TS]

00:20:40   research about the ability to drain the [TS]

00:20:42   lake is what wonderful that was [TS]

00:20:43   consistent for some weed but yeah she's [TS]

00:20:46   saving citizens she's then going to the [TS]

00:20:49   infrastructure and saying you should not [TS]

00:20:52   have let that train run and here's why [TS]

00:20:53   and hear the things you need to do to [TS]

00:20:54   help fix that and you know she is [TS]

00:20:56   concerned with public safety [TS]

00:20:58   Batman is concerned with kissing up to [TS]

00:21:00   the president so I'm voting for Wonder [TS]

00:21:02   Woman alright well that forces me as [TS]

00:21:04   your browser tiebreaker to vote for for [TS]

00:21:07   one of these two and because as i have [TS]

00:21:10   not seated anyone else on the jury at [TS]

00:21:12   this point and i hope you haven't come [TS]

00:21:14   to this it is very difficult for me I [TS]

00:21:16   think that the Wonder Woman scenario is [TS]

00:21:18   very nice although I share Erica [TS]

00:21:19   skepticism that they're somehow is a [TS]

00:21:20   place at the bottom of the lake a [TS]

00:21:23   subterranean Lake for the water drain i [TS]

00:21:25   believe the subterranean Lake baby where [TS]

00:21:27   the water drains to and not from i also [TS]

00:21:30   enjoy that Batman has a his space [TS]

00:21:34   spaceship and his earth spaceship and [TS]

00:21:37   like a dish that may not be shuttle [TS]

00:21:40   shuttle among them well as far as I'm [TS]

00:21:41   concerned if you said Tony must be true [TS]

00:21:43   I I am reluctantly by a hair going to [TS]

00:21:47   have to to rule for Batman who that man [TS]

00:21:50   always gets everything you know yes he [TS]

00:21:52   does it is this is why he's the number [TS]

00:21:54   one seems unfair yeah it is he's got the [TS]

00:21:56   home field advantage [TS]

00:21:57   there yeah he even has a bat sub subhype [TS]

00:21:59   sub pump is that something like that [TS]

00:22:02   yeah that would be great [TS]

00:22:04   Batman knows a thing or two about [TS]

00:22:05   draining underground areas [TS]

00:22:07   well this is great because night when [TS]

00:22:08   the jury that's right Lisa now sends to [TS]

00:22:10   the to do the role of one of our judges [TS]

00:22:13   she's not answering [TS]

00:22:15   HS edge and the silver lining anything [TS]

00:22:19   can happen here my whimsy it is it i do [TS]

00:22:24   we meet we do you shall all right let's [TS]

00:22:29   move on to our next matchup [TS]

00:22:30   it is the thing was gonna be argued by [TS]

00:22:34   Monty and and Wolverine who I will argue [TS]

00:22:37   unfortunately I no longer have to be the [TS]

00:22:39   type right because we have three people [TS]

00:22:40   on the jury now I think that is a good [TS]

00:22:43   thing that happened well why we did them [TS]

00:22:46   in this order for a recent ok Monty here [TS]

00:22:51   is your scenario it is from mr. Gary [TS]

00:22:53   who's who provided us who has been [TS]

00:22:55   killed by dr. strange earlier no I don't [TS]

00:22:58   mean just a tragic wait who has yet who [TS]

00:23:00   has to stop that but with a random [TS]

00:23:02   number of flash aim up with listener [TS]

00:23:04   Gary again been eliminated so listen [TS]

00:23:07   Gary scenario for Monty is this our hero [TS]

00:23:10   thing has to balance the conflict [TS]

00:23:12   between his super team i assume that [TS]

00:23:14   would be fantastic for christmas party [TS]

00:23:16   and a holiday party with extended family [TS]

00:23:19   that is together for the first time in [TS]

00:23:20   years [TS]

00:23:21   all while still man runs amok through a [TS]

00:23:24   clothes shopping mall good scenario Gary [TS]

00:23:27   Monty tell us what is going to happen [TS]

00:23:29   with stealing man [TS]

00:23:31   well the first thing to keep in mind is [TS]

00:23:32   that Ben Grimm is Jewish and his parents [TS]

00:23:34   are dead because it's a holiday party [TS]

00:23:39   with extended family i think that this [TS]

00:23:41   applies because it would be a a Hanukkah [TS]

00:23:43   related gathering case with his aunts [TS]

00:23:46   and uncles [TS]

00:23:47   well i was going to if I may yes and if [TS]

00:23:51   you rule against me it's because you're [TS]

00:23:52   biased because you're arguing SI I can't [TS]

00:23:54   right I know I I ruin your favor [TS]

00:23:56   haha I'm what everything extended family [TS]

00:24:00   as a more private holiday celebration [TS]

00:24:03   with his girlfriend Alicia master [TS]

00:24:05   alright sirna so what's going on is the [TS]

00:24:07   Fantastic Four are having a big show-off [TS]

00:24:09   e Christmas will [TS]

00:24:10   t do in the Baxter building and across [TS]

00:24:13   town [TS]

00:24:14   Alicia masters is making dinner and just [TS]

00:24:17   once been to take a night off from his [TS]

00:24:20   show off e teammates and eat with her [TS]

00:24:25   there's a very we got our dignity Reed [TS]

00:24:27   Richards there thank you out that [TS]

00:24:28   there's more coming back is how to play [TS]

00:24:32   the judges see yesterday this is the [TS]

00:24:34   sort of thing that the blue-eyed [TS]

00:24:36   ever-loving thing is always having to [TS]

00:24:38   deal with because historically the [TS]

00:24:40   Fantastic Four comic book is a split [TS]

00:24:42   about 5050 between fighting [TS]

00:24:44   supervillains and dealing with [TS]

00:24:45   entertaining conflict so if we assume [TS]

00:24:48   that it's kind of a three's company deal [TS]

00:24:50   where everyone's favorite orange Rock [TS]

00:24:52   Monster is having to find excuses to [TS]

00:24:54   sneak out of each party so we can rush [TS]

00:24:56   over to the other one we are I think [TS]

00:24:58   that's pretty easy to make a little [TS]

00:25:01   harder for myself I won't take advantage [TS]

00:25:04   of Alicia's blindness or read Richard [TS]

00:25:06   self-centeredness haha because that's [TS]

00:25:12   where stoked man comes in handy [TS]

00:25:14   he's a villain mostly defined by having [TS]

00:25:17   telescoping legs [TS]

00:25:18   wikipedia describes them as a competent [TS]

00:25:21   engineer and inventor and a moderately [TS]

00:25:23   talented disguise artist and I think [TS]

00:25:26   it's safe to say that anyone who is [TS]

00:25:27   described with words like competent and [TS]

00:25:29   moderate it's not a top-ranked threat so [TS]

00:25:32   it should be no problem for the thing to [TS]

00:25:34   occasionally glance out the window of [TS]

00:25:36   the Baxter building christmas party and [TS]

00:25:37   say hope there's that goofball [TS]

00:25:39   I'll be right back guys still men's mess [TS]

00:25:41   around with the mall then rush across [TS]

00:25:44   town go spend some time with alicia [TS]

00:25:46   after the appetizers [TS]

00:25:50   he says well Alicia I guess he still [TS]

00:25:52   turn out the window [TS]

00:25:53   I got to be right back and the horse [TS]

00:25:55   rush back to the drawing the rest of the [TS]

00:25:57   team at the party back and forth all [TS]

00:25:59   night as long as he's back at the Baxter [TS]

00:26:01   building in time to put on the Santa [TS]

00:26:02   suit and give out presents because [TS]

00:26:04   obviously Ben's the one who puts on the [TS]

00:26:06   Santa suit to give our presence [TS]

00:26:07   everything should be fine at the end [TS]

00:26:10   when everyone has a festive evening then [TS]

00:26:12   goes out into the night to finally deal [TS]

00:26:14   with still man for real I figure 1 [TS]

00:26:16   backhand smack how to do it [TS]

00:26:20   the keys you just take out one of those [TS]

00:26:32   the foot locker at the mall who's who's [TS]

00:26:34   had his store looted by still man while [TS]

00:26:36   Ben cream has had you know canap├ęs with [TS]

00:26:47   don't man is up around the roof [TS]

00:26:48   it's up to the judges decide it's not [TS]

00:26:49   for me to decide I'm right we'll move on [TS]

00:26:52   to the the competition it's Wolverine [TS]

00:26:54   i'm going to switch that for Wolverine [TS]

00:26:56   this is from listener David one of his [TS]

00:26:59   two submissions that will hear his other [TS]

00:27:01   one later and this is it Wolverine comes [TS]

00:27:04   across a boy who is about to [TS]

00:27:06   unintentionally unleash a nuclear [TS]

00:27:07   explosion from his body he and by he i [TS]

00:27:11   believe David means Wolverine can [TS]

00:27:13   teleport once Wolverine seems to have [TS]

00:27:16   had a single-use teleportation device [TS]

00:27:19   and given to him [TS]

00:27:20   why can't i have the teleportation bet [TS]

00:27:22   big my scenario so much easier but you [TS]

00:27:23   can't wait to watch you can only do it [TS]

00:27:25   once does Wolverine saved the city and [TS]

00:27:28   the child by taking the child far away [TS]

00:27:30   but sacrificing himself or he's trapped [TS]

00:27:33   on one side of a river there's a box and [TS]

00:27:35   more interesting for doesn't hold a [TS]

00:27:37   child that's right about as he saved the [TS]

00:27:39   child because it doesn't charge an [TS]

00:27:41   explosion matter what so yeah I am glad [TS]

00:27:44   you asked that question Dan Wolverine [TS]

00:27:47   standing there like twenty dollars [TS]

00:27:49   standing next to the the UH the the [TS]

00:27:52   isotope lad who is a who says I I can't [TS]

00:27:56   stop it mr. Wolverine i'm going to [TS]

00:27:58   release a nuclear explosion there's [TS]

00:28:00   nothing i can do and Wolverine says as [TS]

00:28:04   he slowly walks up to the kid listen kid [TS]

00:28:06   there two ways this can go we can we can [TS]

00:28:09   teleport you out into the desert and see [TS]

00:28:11   what happens [TS]

00:28:12   or i can end it now and he puts his hand [TS]

00:28:14   up to the head of the kit and says I [TS]

00:28:16   could get my closet right now and end [TS]

00:28:18   this and you'll die but the city will be [TS]

00:28:20   safe or we can we can use my little [TS]

00:28:23   single use teleport that i got from [TS]

00:28:25   let's say Reed Richards [TS]

00:28:28   that read upside is you want and and we [TS]

00:28:34   can take our chances you and me and I [TS]

00:28:35   you're probably gonna blow me to [TS]

00:28:37   smithereens and you might blow your [TS]

00:28:38   smoke itself to smithereens [TS]

00:28:40   but the city will be safe for sure what [TS]

00:28:42   do you say kid and the kid looks at him [TS]

00:28:44   and says Mr Wolverine I don't want this [TS]

00:28:47   city to die and so I think you're gonna [TS]

00:28:50   have to kill me and Wolverine says [TS]

00:28:51   forget a kid I was never gonna kill you [TS]

00:28:54   and he presses the button initiating the [TS]

00:28:56   teleport thingy and taking them into the [TS]

00:28:59   desert somewhere I guess where it goes [TS]

00:29:04   this is natalie williams realty ecology [TS]

00:29:08   everybody into the moon basically Reed [TS]

00:29:11   Richards handed in the thing and said [TS]

00:29:12   use this on the isotope lat will get him [TS]

00:29:14   out of the way I'm really gonna take [TS]

00:29:17   this problem that you [TS]

00:29:18   yeah it'sit's roll the teleport is part [TS]

00:29:21   of the scenario it just is there [TS]

00:29:22   I don't think Wolverines discovered he [TS]

00:29:24   has a single-use teleportation mutant [TS]

00:29:25   power that seems unlikely so I'm gonna [TS]

00:29:27   go with a single use teleport somewhere [TS]

00:29:28   else [TS]

00:29:29   everybody ran out in the middle of the [TS]

00:29:31   desert there's nothing there for miles [TS]

00:29:33   and miles and miles and the kid says Mr [TS]

00:29:36   Wolverine I can feel it coming here [TS]

00:29:38   comes the nuclear explosion and he says [TS]

00:29:40   hold on kid you probably be okay and if [TS]

00:29:44   i don't if I don't make it then it's [TS]

00:29:47   that way to Phoenix boom giant nuclear [TS]

00:29:51   explosion happens well by the standards [TS]

00:29:53   of regular explosions of the giant by [TS]

00:29:54   the standards of nuclear explosions it's [TS]

00:29:56   small but it's still a nuclear explosion [TS]

00:29:58   the kid wakes up it's it's evening in [TS]

00:30:02   the desert and he realizes that although [TS]

00:30:05   he's exploded with the fire of a nuclear [TS]

00:30:07   bomb [TS]

00:30:08   he's okay because his mutant power has [TS]

00:30:10   protected him so he gets up and begins [TS]

00:30:12   to walk the direction [TS]

00:30:14   Wolverine pointed him toward phoenix [TS]

00:30:16   arizona where he can hopefully find a [TS]

00:30:18   street or call his mom or get a ride or [TS]

00:30:21   maybe call Reed Richards who knows as he [TS]

00:30:24   walks he passes a small fragment of bone [TS]

00:30:28   the only let the only remains of [TS]

00:30:32   wolverine to solve dissolve dissolve one [TS]

00:30:35   week later ovaries regrown and he's out [TS]

00:30:39   in the desert he goes wow thats tongue [TS]

00:30:41   he gets up [TS]

00:30:42   calls Charles Xavier they pick him up in [TS]

00:30:44   a jet and he goes back to New York and [TS]

00:30:47   that is how Wolverine saved the city [TS]

00:30:50   with a little help from Richard but [TS]

00:30:52   let's not talk about that [TS]

00:30:54   alright I I think it's time to go to the [TS]

00:30:56   judges now Lisa what are your thoughts [TS]

00:30:58   that whole wolverine scenario is in [TS]

00:31:02   direct opposition to what Logan actually [TS]

00:31:04   did to a child who was killing off the [TS]

00:31:07   entire city thanks to his mutant power [TS]

00:31:08   in one of the issues of the ultimate [TS]

00:31:11   x-men and in that issue what Logan did [TS]

00:31:14   is Logan says it's either the entire [TS]

00:31:16   world or its you kid and it sucks but [TS]

00:31:18   here is my butt but you know the choice [TS]

00:31:20   i'm going to make and the kids sniffles [TS]

00:31:21   and says it's not fair i've never been [TS]

00:31:24   kissed a girl and looking handsome [TS]

00:31:25   appearance as you can at least have a [TS]

00:31:26   beer before I do that was a good one [TS]

00:31:28   David fit and ultimate canceling enough [TS]

00:31:31   beer argument Wolverine it gives the kid [TS]

00:31:33   a beer and then kills him [TS]

00:31:35   okay i'm gonna kiss the kid now now for [TS]

00:31:38   the ultimate thrill it's a little like [TS]

00:31:41   this and Wesley yeah but there's a lot [TS]

00:31:46   of editing commands given fault [TS]

00:31:48   oh no so the whole time Jason is is [TS]

00:31:51   spinning his scenario it's quite [TS]

00:31:53   cinematic and lovely and I can see Hugh [TS]

00:31:54   Jackman acting the bejesus out of it but [TS]

00:31:56   no I don't buy it and so I'm gonna go [TS]

00:31:59   with the I'm gonna I'm gonna go with the [TS]

00:32:01   been grim scenario instead [TS]

00:32:02   all right Erica what do you think well [TS]

00:32:05   i'm not particularly fan of this been [TS]

00:32:07   grim scenario when he's using the chaos [TS]

00:32:10   at the mall in order to be able to go [TS]

00:32:12   back and forth between two fancy parties [TS]

00:32:14   talk about privilege so many one of the [TS]

00:32:18   manager of the footlocker as his stock [TS]

00:32:20   is destroyed by still Manuel bank room i [TS]

00:32:22   didn't mention that the mall is set on [TS]

00:32:24   Yancy Street everybody there hates Ben [TS]

00:32:26   Grimm so the health does not make it [TS]

00:32:29   worse help our David you get to decide [TS]

00:32:31   this one [TS]

00:32:32   oh well i have to have to say I'm with [TS]

00:32:36   Lisa because I think ultimate Wolverine [TS]

00:32:38   or not either version of Wolverine would [TS]

00:32:40   probably do the same thing [TS]

00:32:42   and I kinda like the idea of Ben Grimm [TS]

00:32:45   is Jack Tripper and i would think that [TS]

00:32:48   if it's a holiday party it's gonna be [TS]

00:32:50   night time the mall might well be closed [TS]

00:32:52   and its foot locker [TS]

00:32:54   who cares so it's still man just having [TS]

00:32:57   a good time [TS]

00:32:58   it's like a joyride baby just want a [TS]

00:33:00   corn dog on a stick because it reminds [TS]

00:33:03   him of well anyway you know what's an [TS]

00:33:05   orange Julia card and the fifth still [TS]

00:33:09   man used to run used to manage a [TS]

00:33:11   cinnabon that was just as commander I [TS]

00:33:13   mean admittedly people are freaked out [TS]

00:33:15   by the stove man but maybe they're [TS]

00:33:16   freaking out and he's just like hey it's [TS]

00:33:18   the holiday season I want to go [TS]

00:33:19   Christmas shopping so I'm going to go [TS]

00:33:21   with bit i'm gonna go with Ben Grimm [TS]

00:33:23   alright Ben Graham moving along you go [TS]

00:33:26   to the mall there's free balloons in the [TS]

00:33:28   rafters cinderella story continues okay [TS]

00:33:36   let's move on to our next matchup it is [TS]

00:33:40   number one seed spider-man against [TS]

00:33:42   number two seed captain america captain [TS]

00:33:44   america although number two highly [TS]

00:33:46   ranked is the low seat here but Moyes is [TS]

00:33:48   you get to go first you will be [TS]

00:33:49   responding to a scenario from mr. david [TS]

00:33:52   who we just heard in the wolverine [TS]

00:33:54   scenario and this is listening David [TS]

00:33:56   scenario a bad guy took control of the [TS]

00:33:58   superheroes mind that be captain america [TS]

00:34:00   and had him killed a few thousand [TS]

00:34:02   innocent people but how will he [TS]

00:34:05   explained he didn't do it make amends [TS]

00:34:08   and stop it from happening again is well [TS]

00:34:12   in a world where things like civil war [TS]

00:34:14   happen i have to say that this [TS]

00:34:16   particular scenario is is not exactly [TS]

00:34:18   off the beaten path as it were the only [TS]

00:34:21   thing that Captain America could [TS]

00:34:23   possibly hope to do is be honest tell [TS]

00:34:26   people the truth and lay himself at the [TS]

00:34:30   mercy of the system of justice to which [TS]

00:34:32   he has sworn an oath captain america is [TS]

00:34:35   the one who is going to get on his knees [TS]

00:34:38   surrender himself and hopefully not get [TS]

00:34:41   assassinated by one of his friends who [TS]

00:34:43   has been mind-controlled to do so in [TS]

00:34:46   doing so it really comes down to honesty [TS]

00:34:48   it really comes down to a guy who [TS]

00:34:52   technically wears a mask but everybody [TS]

00:34:54   knows what his secret identity is coming [TS]

00:34:56   out and saying look you guys know me you [TS]

00:35:00   know my record you know that this is not [TS]

00:35:02   something that you would associate with [TS]

00:35:04   Captain America you know that this is [TS]

00:35:07   not me you know that this is only the [TS]

00:35:09   sort of thing that could be it could be [TS]

00:35:12   held to 22 mind control and if you don't [TS]

00:35:16   believe that well I i have to lay myself [TS]

00:35:18   at the mercy of the American people the [TS]

00:35:21   people of the world god Bless America [TS]

00:35:24   and when it comes down to it that's [TS]

00:35:27   that's it that's that's that's the thing [TS]

00:35:29   the cap has to stand on is trust me [TS]

00:35:32   trust my record and and if you don't I'm [TS]

00:35:36   going to make myself accountable for all [TS]

00:35:39   of it [TS]

00:35:39   unlike some people who run around [TS]

00:35:41   wearing a mask and and and not being [TS]

00:35:44   forthright and telling people who he is [TS]

00:35:47   and and that was how Captain America got [TS]

00:35:50   away with Matt yeah that moving on to [TS]

00:35:54   spider man who's gonna be argued by Dan [TS]

00:35:56   you got a scenario from listen Michael [TS]

00:35:59   and it is simple and again as with the [TS]

00:36:01   flash scenario was generated randomly [TS]

00:36:04   and yet is so match to the hero here is [TS]

00:36:07   the spider-man scenario spider-man is [TS]

00:36:10   forced to go on a date with the child of [TS]

00:36:14   his arch-nemesis damn well Michael we [TS]

00:36:21   we've all been there right [TS]

00:36:23   you know we're just an ordinary [TS]

00:36:24   superhero trying to make a lot of [TS]

00:36:26   difference in the lives of the people of [TS]

00:36:28   our city and and you know occasionally [TS]

00:36:30   try to find date and we can't help it if [TS]

00:36:32   in this connected age the dating [TS]

00:36:35   services that we use on our mobile phone [TS]

00:36:37   website matches up with the daughter of [TS]

00:36:39   a supervillain like that's you know the [TS]

00:36:41   odds are it's going to happen sooner or [TS]

00:36:43   later he's got a lot of arch nemesis I [TS]

00:36:47   think you know to Peter Parker's credit [TS]

00:36:48   and I assume that he's going on the [TS]

00:36:50   state is Peter Parker and not so much as [TS]

00:36:51   spider-man probably not seem super [TS]

00:36:53   awkward but I you know never rule it out [TS]

00:36:58   I feel like you know Peter Parker [TS]

00:36:59   probably maybe you would realize until [TS]

00:37:00   he shows up at this like fancy [TS]

00:37:02   restaurant that he's arranged to go to [TS]

00:37:03   him and he has that sort of moment of [TS]

00:37:05   like she [TS]

00:37:05   looks really familiar o.o crap but you [TS]

00:37:09   know he's an upstanding kid and I think [TS]

00:37:11   you know what he learned from from Aunt [TS]

00:37:14   May and Uncle Ben among other things [TS]

00:37:16   that with great power comes great [TS]

00:37:18   responsibility towards you know the [TS]

00:37:20   people that you date in life so I think [TS]

00:37:22   he would try to do his best to make sure [TS]

00:37:24   that that his date had a pleasant [TS]

00:37:25   evening but I think he would also try to [TS]

00:37:27   subtly sabotage it by you know perhaps [TS]

00:37:30   using some of his science know how to [TS]

00:37:32   accidentally caused you know something [TS]

00:37:37   terrible that happened during the [TS]

00:37:38   meeting at the table suddenly falls over [TS]

00:37:40   spilling all the food on him and he has [TS]

00:37:41   to get up an excuse himself and go to [TS]

00:37:42   the restroom or that he would you know [TS]

00:37:44   actually accidentally shoot something [TS]

00:37:47   his league with his web slinging advices [TS]

00:37:49   and you know again sort of caused a [TS]

00:37:52   mishap that would distract attention so [TS]

00:37:55   that well the date he would be trying [TS]

00:37:57   gamely to make the date you know it's [TS]

00:37:59   like seem like he's going off very well [TS]

00:38:01   he would also ensure that not only word [TS]

00:38:05   that would never be a second date but [TS]

00:38:07   there wouldn't even be the least [TS]

00:38:08   suspicion that he is in fact spider-man [TS]

00:38:11   and thus compromise his secret identity [TS]

00:38:13   but he would make sure that you know [TS]

00:38:16   that he takes care of dinner and that he [TS]

00:38:18   makes sure that she gets home safely and [TS]

00:38:20   all of the support things because Peter [TS]

00:38:21   Parker's above all things a gentleman [TS]

00:38:24   and then he would suit up and go out and [TS]

00:38:27   fight some crime may be awkwardly [TS]

00:38:28   busting her dad in the process [TS]

00:38:30   you never know those kinds of things [TS]

00:38:32   happen all right tough one for our [TS]

00:38:34   judges let us start with David what do [TS]

00:38:37   you think I love the threes company [TS]

00:38:39   scenario for Ben Grimm this is a few [TS]

00:38:46   degrees less difficult than that you [TS]

00:38:49   know it's a date [TS]

00:38:50   he gets out of the date it's kinda like [TS]

00:38:52   an episode of family ties really where [TS]

00:38:56   is Captain America is the one who's [TS]

00:38:58   standing up for you know he's taking [TS]

00:39:01   great responsibility and placing great [TS]

00:39:03   trust in the people and you know if all [TS]

00:39:06   goes wrong and then I look forward to [TS]

00:39:09   the Marvel version of that supermax [TS]

00:39:11   prison script the DC never made as a [TS]

00:39:14   film and also i really like ultimate [TS]

00:39:17   frisbee so I'm gonna go with cabinet [TS]

00:39:18   member [TS]

00:39:18   go all right Erica I 2 i'm going to go [TS]

00:39:23   with Captain America I I appreciate that [TS]

00:39:25   both of the the answers for these were [TS]

00:39:28   basically being upstanding fellows but I [TS]

00:39:31   I like the simplicity and the elegance [TS]

00:39:33   of the fact that honesty really is the [TS]

00:39:36   best policy [TS]

00:39:37   so I go with cap who says America isn't [TS]

00:39:39   great place for any what it would it [TS]

00:39:42   what we have we have two votes already [TS]

00:39:43   for Captain America but i'm interested [TS]

00:39:44   in your thoughts that the record for the [TS]

00:39:50   record you can find a descent or you can [TS]

00:39:52   file a concurring opinion now how [TS]

00:39:54   patriotic are you Lisa how much do you [TS]

00:39:55   love America now undergoing treatment no [TS]

00:40:00   imagery on purpose [TS]

00:40:02   yeah up there is an aircon hot see here [TS]

00:40:06   as was crazy she's making a little bit [TS]

00:40:10   on being wrongly accused of being [TS]

00:40:13   accused of mass murder you committed [TS]

00:40:15   when you're technically out of your [TS]

00:40:16   gourd and and going on a bad date [TS]

00:40:19   rr-really just two sides of the same [TS]

00:40:20   coin [TS]

00:40:21   come on with it because they're they're [TS]

00:40:25   both just really awkward situations [TS]

00:40:27   where where your left [TS]

00:40:28   cleaning up a mess that you didn't quite [TS]

00:40:29   create I honestly feel like bad dates [TS]

00:40:32   are sort of Peter Parker's normal and [TS]

00:40:34   this isn't a particular challenge for [TS]

00:40:36   him [TS]

00:40:37   whereas you know well actually come to [TS]

00:40:42   think of it perhaps mass murder as [TS]

00:40:43   America's normal and not a particular [TS]

00:40:45   challenge [TS]

00:40:47   oh gosh it's i'm going to go with [TS]

00:40:49   Captain America just because i want to [TS]

00:40:50   see how this plays out the final device [TS]

00:40:52   with You captain america and i think i [TS]

00:40:54   got hampered bad scenario now know that [TS]

00:40:57   you have to make to you could come up [TS]

00:40:58   with like the reason you never dan you [TS]

00:41:00   never addressed why he was forced to go [TS]

00:41:02   on this date for example you didn't [TS]

00:41:04   paint us a picture and this is planning [TS]

00:41:06   it yet the vultures daughters later that [TS]

00:41:09   this scenario was pool little this [TS]

00:41:11   scenario was poorly laid out I didn't [TS]

00:41:14   get an example [TS]

00:41:15   long premise about all the reasons [TS]

00:41:17   behind right so as their plan where was [TS]

00:41:20   he just like Oh a family friend himself [TS]

00:41:22   on a date with the Nemesis daughter [TS]

00:41:24   maybe maybe the nemesis was trying to [TS]

00:41:26   trap him maybe the daughter is trying to [TS]

00:41:28   trap him maybe um elestren John it's [TS]

00:41:31   spider-man to lose so that Jason would [TS]

00:41:34   be really sad interesting but we'll [TS]

00:41:36   never know because spider-man has been [TS]

00:41:38   eliminated and that we have reached the [TS]

00:41:39   final four which means the dan you now [TS]

00:41:41   joining our panel judges welcome and we [TS]

00:41:44   are moving to the next round which [TS]

00:41:46   involves doomsday scenario selected and [TS]

00:41:49   provided to our participants on the spot [TS]

00:41:51   they must react and say how their hero [TS]

00:41:53   would react to a doomsday scenario we're [TS]

00:41:57   going to start with Batman versus the [TS]

00:41:59   thing Tony and Monty Monty you get to go [TS]

00:42:02   first [TS]

00:42:03   I i have randomly selected a doomsday [TS]

00:42:06   scenario for you and this is it a mad [TS]

00:42:09   scientist has pointed a colossal [TS]

00:42:12   magnifying glass at antarctica in order [TS]

00:42:15   to completely melt the ice shelves and [TS]

00:42:16   round the world please tell us how the [TS]

00:42:19   thing would react to that scenario [TS]

00:42:23   well the first thing they have to do is [TS]

00:42:26   go get that giant magnifying glass [TS]

00:42:30   now there's a chance that just hovering [TS]

00:42:32   in space but I like to think of it as [TS]

00:42:35   sort of at as being a sherlock holmes [TS]

00:42:38   type magnifying glass we've got the lens [TS]

00:42:40   and then a handle so that the handle it [TS]

00:42:42   is pitching that well it's because you [TS]

00:42:44   look over that way and i'm on board so [TS]

00:42:47   he's going to get in one of the [TS]

00:42:49   Fantastic Four's many jet cars possibly [TS]

00:42:52   the fantastic car and shoot straight [TS]

00:42:55   down to the South Pole [TS]

00:42:57   maybe it's a handle is in Tierra del [TS]

00:42:59   Fuego and then it just goes up a bit [TS]

00:43:03   do you think they have real estate [TS]

00:43:04   speculation going on maybe they're [TS]

00:43:06   trying to turn it melt ice cap so that [TS]

00:43:08   they're there inland properties will [TS]

00:43:10   suddenly become hot resort properties [TS]

00:43:12   oh that's a really that aren't really [TS]

00:43:14   any alien a stupid plan and only a [TS]

00:43:17   terrible movie would use that I'm gonna [TS]

00:43:21   fly down to Tierra del Fuego no need to [TS]

00:43:23   bring the other fantastic four on this [TS]

00:43:25   job seems pretty straightforward also [TS]

00:43:28   want to spend [TS]

00:43:28   with Reed Richards luckily up as you may [TS]

00:43:32   know Ben is an expert pilot and he will [TS]

00:43:36   have no problem shooting down to tear a [TS]

00:43:38   little if i go hop out of the [TS]

00:43:39   fantasticar walk up to this enormous [TS]

00:43:42   magnifying glass [TS]

00:43:43   grip it with his incredible physical [TS]

00:43:45   strength second only to the Hulk you may [TS]

00:43:49   be interested to know that it says here [TS]

00:43:50   his feet include successfully holding [TS]

00:43:52   back a giant alien spacecraft from [TS]

00:43:55   jettisoning from Earth [TS]

00:43:56   Wow given that i'm certain that all he [TS]

00:43:59   would have to do is grab that giant [TS]

00:44:03   magnifying glass and then grunt and [TS]

00:44:06   strain for a couple of pages it rip it [TS]

00:44:09   right from the ground fling it off into [TS]

00:44:12   space where it will eventually hit the [TS]

00:44:15   Sun all right give me a doomsday [TS]

00:44:17   challenge that is easily solved with [TS]

00:44:20   just grit determination and enormous [TS]

00:44:24   strength all of which Ben Grimm has in [TS]

00:44:28   spades [TS]

00:44:28   all right there nice Tony here's your [TS]

00:44:31   scenario it's from listener drew that [TS]

00:44:33   was from mr. Michael by the way lister [TS]

00:44:35   Michael back he you may remember him [TS]

00:44:38   from the loony toon serial killer [TS]

00:44:40   I love that guy and and and now he's [TS]

00:44:44   back with that with that I've just [TS]

00:44:46   freshly randomly picked these as as [TS]

00:44:49   we've been talking here's your's it's [TS]

00:44:51   for listener drew and Tony this is the [TS]

00:44:53   entirety of your doomsday scenario the [TS]

00:44:55   dinosaurs are back and they're angry [TS]

00:44:59   Wow well you know I think that you can [TS]

00:45:04   always count on Batman on to to figure [TS]

00:45:07   out that there is a problem using his [TS]

00:45:09   detachment skills so you'll notice is [TS]

00:45:12   intended for steady and they're angry is [TS]

00:45:15   detective in the world everybody [TS]

00:45:17   yeah I'm afraid we're rounding into the [TS]

00:45:19   Batcave would be like master Bruce [TS]

00:45:21   master Bruce the dinosaurs are back and [TS]

00:45:22   and he'll turn around in this Jan be [TS]

00:45:24   like I know and there and they're angry [TS]

00:45:26   yeah I'm not really hungry or tired or [TS]

00:45:29   crazier uncomfortable there are angry [TS]

00:45:31   you know there's a reoccurring thing [TS]

00:45:32   where are Batman [TS]

00:45:33   it will sometimes he will in in the [TS]

00:45:35   guise of Bruce Wayne being like I need [TS]

00:45:37   to make a donation to somewhere will go [TS]

00:45:39   and talk to somebody like the first [TS]

00:45:41   appearance of man that he goes and talk [TS]

00:45:42   to a bat scientists about like I need to [TS]

00:45:44   donate a bunch of money to your bat lab [TS]

00:45:46   but hey there's the students knocking [TS]

00:45:48   over like you know the labs across town [TS]

00:45:51   can I ask you some questions about that [TS]

00:45:52   i'm just we're just got eccentric rich [TS]

00:45:54   guy so I think you know he'll go and [TS]

00:45:56   talk to us some paleontologists and [TS]

00:45:57   figure out like how many how many [TS]

00:45:59   dinosaurs should we keep for scientific [TS]

00:46:01   reasons and how many dinosaurs am I [TS]

00:46:03   allowed to you know vaporize what you [TS]

00:46:07   don't get to keep all the dinosaurs [TS]

00:46:09   that's less than one of when the [TS]

00:46:10   dinosaurs come back that's a problem [TS]

00:46:12   you get to keep some dinosaurs you put [TS]

00:46:14   them in zoos that's good for the kids [TS]

00:46:15   but then I think Batman is probably [TS]

00:46:18   gonna have two big break out some kind [TS]

00:46:20   of pretty severe bat hardware I think [TS]

00:46:22   we're talking about some kind of bat mac [TS]

00:46:23   at this point and he's gonna have to go [TS]

00:46:26   out and probably have to fight some some [TS]

00:46:28   some dinosaurs and you know other other [TS]

00:46:30   heroes might shoot dinosaurs Batman's [TS]

00:46:33   not about that but he will wear a giant [TS]

00:46:35   robot suit and punch a dinosaur in the [TS]

00:46:36   face with a bat neck with a back fist [TS]

00:46:38   and I think there's probably going to be [TS]

00:46:40   about two issues than a Batman just [TS]

00:46:42   punching dinosaurs [TS]

00:46:43   maybe maybe eventually gets to ride [TS]

00:46:45   t-rex and he's lassoing some other [TS]

00:46:47   dinosaurs and yeah there's gonna be a [TS]

00:46:49   lot of batman ride-on dinosaurs lasting [TS]

00:46:51   dinosaurs keeping a couple dinosaurs and [TS]

00:46:52   pin i don't know maybe just chase the [TS]

00:46:54   rest into the ocean Batman's not here to [TS]

00:46:56   you know to protect all dinosaurs here [TS]

00:46:58   to protect often Tony world [TS]

00:47:00   yeah i know we're competitors but can I [TS]

00:47:02   make a suggestion go for it i'd really [TS]

00:47:04   like some sort of situation where he has [TS]

00:47:06   to use a pterodactyl because it looks [TS]

00:47:08   kind of like a bat [TS]

00:47:09   oh yeah I have a small question point of [TS]

00:47:12   clarification with the dinosaur scenario [TS]

00:47:14   please I I am I I go good say I'm ready [TS]

00:47:17   but I won't lie i'm here what are their [TS]

00:47:20   what is Moses oars and dinosaurs in the [TS]

00:47:22   ocean [TS]

00:47:23   oh well those I feel like are those [TS]

00:47:25   really dangerous people I feel like if [TS]

00:47:28   they keep them so because there's always [TS]

00:47:30   rated Aquaman payback laugh knock woman [TS]

00:47:34   i was not yelling three rounds ago what [TS]

00:47:35   ya gonna do you have knocked [TS]

00:47:37   I've been here the whole series is over [TS]

00:47:39   oh yeah however now i feel like if [TS]

00:47:42   you've knocked the superhero out of [TS]

00:47:43   contention already they don't get to [TS]

00:47:44   come back to help the people who are [TS]

00:47:46   still in don't think you have a visual [TS]

00:47:48   just like on Top Chef when everybody [TS]

00:47:49   goes back as a sous-chef no I I hate [TS]

00:47:52   that to believe that helps with the [TS]

00:47:54   judges decide whether they want to look [TS]

00:47:56   great i would like to offer a [TS]

00:47:57   conservative estimate [TS]

00:47:58   I feel like Batman could take down a [TS]

00:48:00   hundred and fifty maybe 275 dinosaurs [TS]

00:48:03   before he need to call for help [TS]

00:48:04   that's absolutely right i'm just saying [TS]

00:48:06   i want to see my writing part back that [TS]

00:48:07   you got 200 angry dinosaurs you call the [TS]

00:48:09   Justice League hundred and seventy-five [TS]

00:48:11   his Batman so that the series had the [TS]

00:48:13   dinosaurs are back all the dinosaurs [TS]

00:48:16   never been a lot as well that's millions [TS]

00:48:18   of years of them the more than training [TS]

00:48:21   so i guess the tiny cute ones are the [TS]

00:48:22   ones that stay in zoos for the kids [TS]

00:48:24   well it is a doomsday scenario so we can [TS]

00:48:26   be a small number of dinosaurs has to be [TS]

00:48:28   enough whatever the number is the causes [TS]

00:48:30   doom from dinosaurs dinosaur do you know [TS]

00:48:33   I don't have the dinosaur doing number [TS]

00:48:35   back up what I mean like one really [TS]

00:48:37   angry one could do it yeah and everyone [TS]

00:48:40   strong point [TS]

00:48:41   alright I think we're going to move on [TS]

00:48:42   to the judges now to determine though [TS]

00:48:45   the winner between these two these two [TS]

00:48:46   scenarios and why don't we start with [TS]

00:48:49   dan I have a concern about this dinosaur [TS]

00:48:53   scenario specifically i believe mention [TS]

00:48:55   was made of Batman vaporizing dinosaurs [TS]

00:48:57   now correct me if I'm wrong Batman is [TS]

00:49:00   not really a killer and considering that [TS]

00:49:03   this entire species was wiped out off [TS]

00:49:05   the entire face of the earth don't you [TS]

00:49:07   think you'll find some sort of way to [TS]

00:49:09   maybe you know let them live in harmony [TS]

00:49:12   maybe put them on a giant spaceship or [TS]

00:49:13   something and send them off to the moon [TS]

00:49:14   Nicki with the President and really bad [TS]

00:49:17   as for you over there with its parents [TS]

00:49:19   he'll die this office will talk later [TS]

00:49:23   yeah i mean that's what the moon night [TS]

00:49:25   would have done and he would have had it [TS]

00:49:26   under control [TS]

00:49:27   no but I when I my views around all the [TS]

00:49:29   dinosaurs in the Sea of Tranquility IIM [TS]

00:49:31   worried about me lately killing off all [TS]

00:49:34   of these all of these endangered want to [TS]

00:49:37   be fair [TS]

00:49:37   somebody said they would put some ensues [TS]

00:49:39   and he would kill all right yeah let's [TS]

00:49:41   kill some of them in prison the rest of [TS]

00:49:42   them that makes perfect sense [TS]

00:49:43   this is 170 and fully yeah let me let me [TS]

00:49:47   talk let me give you some batman logic [TS]

00:49:48   here you can't reason with a source [TS]

00:49:50   trust me Batman way unlike which are we [TS]

00:49:53   talking about land before time dinosaurs [TS]

00:49:55   now these are the bad kind of dentists [TS]

00:49:57   towards Frank there any land before time [TS]

00:49:59   x 480 the Batman know at least one [TS]

00:50:02   dinosaur dinosaur hybrid or something [TS]

00:50:05   I mean he has like it t-rex in his [TS]

00:50:07   Batcave but thatthat's we have no we [TS]

00:50:09   have no resentment is here its statute [TS]

00:50:11   i'm pretty sure to stretch it maybe it's [TS]

00:50:13   maybe it's an actual t-rex it's just [TS]

00:50:15   very still and whatever I'm going on [TS]

00:50:17   record by registering my my concerns [TS]

00:50:20   about Batman willfully killing [TS]

00:50:21   endangered creatures but it's still [TS]

00:50:22   better than a stupid magnifying glass [TS]

00:50:24   blame the villain man yeah let's go to [TS]

00:50:29   Erica what do you think I'm torn because [TS]

00:50:32   I love the idea of this giant magnifying [TS]

00:50:34   glass just hanging there and then it [TS]

00:50:36   then just coming up in just tossing it [TS]

00:50:40   away i think that's you talk about [TS]

00:50:41   elegance simplicity I I appreciate that [TS]

00:50:44   however I also I I wouldn't have even [TS]

00:50:47   thought to save any of the dinosaurs so [TS]

00:50:49   I appreciate the idea that Batman [TS]

00:50:51   decided to save some of them and put [TS]

00:50:52   them put them in zoos and and I think [TS]

00:50:55   that's a kind of a much more interesting [TS]

00:50:57   way to go so I'm gonna I'm gonna go for [TS]

00:51:00   Batman alright Lisa what do you think [TS]

00:51:02   well I don't hold a grudge against [TS]

00:51:04   Batman just because he knocked out one [TS]

00:51:06   last round and I I honestly I really [TS]

00:51:09   love the Dinosaur scenario for so many [TS]

00:51:11   rates [TS]

00:51:14   I just think it's great that it just [TS]

00:51:20   amuses speed imagine Batman riding on [TS]

00:51:22   the back of a Terran odd of some sort of [TS]

00:51:24   it at some point in the proceedings and [TS]

00:51:26   and feeding the land dinosaurs to the [TS]

00:51:28   mosasaurs and then finding [TS]

00:51:30   to get to the end they die of starvation [TS]

00:51:31   or something so I'm gonna have to put [TS]

00:51:35   that dinosaur just because i really love [TS]

00:51:37   that scenario so much like it just gives [TS]

00:51:39   me much more pleasure than imagining Ben [TS]

00:51:41   Graham walking out of a conversation [TS]

00:51:42   with Reed Richards because reading is [TS]

00:51:44   boring and awful and then going then [TS]

00:51:46   driving one of the fantastic cars down [TS]

00:51:48   south to take care of a comically [TS]

00:51:49   oversized magnifying glass that that [TS]

00:51:52   that doesn't hold a candle to Batman [TS]

00:51:55   effectively making a Jurassic Park movie [TS]

00:51:57   with his own personal bet that Raptor [TS]

00:51:58   squad [TS]

00:51:59   well Batman is going to move on David [TS]

00:52:02   though I like your your thoughts to [TS]

00:52:04   concur or descent I have to concur i [TS]

00:52:07   mean like i said i wouldn't have put him [TS]

00:52:08   in this round but if he's here [TS]

00:52:11   I I gotta give it to him I mean I [TS]

00:52:13   desperate times call for desperate [TS]

00:52:15   measures so it is doomsday device [TS]

00:52:17   doomsday scenario he's gonna probably [TS]

00:52:20   have to kill something and they're [TS]

00:52:22   dinosaurs they're not people write this [TS]

00:52:24   whole thing has been much killing people [TS]

00:52:26   so god what if there's tension though [TS]

00:52:28   while I was not in the scenario just [TS]

00:52:31   hangout wasn't how can I repay re-passed [TS]

00:52:34   dinosaur you know Ben's got a whole team [TS]

00:52:37   that he could call on but he's able to [TS]

00:52:39   handle it himself what kind of a [TS]

00:52:40   doomsday is that you know pretty easy so [TS]

00:52:43   i gotta write a band but but wait [TS]

00:52:45   because Ben is part of a team but didn't [TS]

00:52:47   use them as opposed to Batman who's part [TS]

00:52:49   of the justice league but didn't use [TS]

00:52:51   them [TS]

00:52:52   that doesn't seem right at all well we [TS]

00:52:54   have one of the many and justices of [TS]

00:52:56   this tournament [TS]

00:52:59   congratulations to Batman for moving on [TS]

00:53:02   as as foretold we're gonna move on to [TS]

00:53:03   the next round now my judge now Monty [TS]

00:53:06   congratulations you are that you are now [TS]

00:53:07   a judge x you've been promoted [TS]

00:53:10   how many judges now up to them they're [TS]

00:53:14   there are six now if always judged and [TS]

00:53:17   we can see how I'd only appear when I [TS]

00:53:19   need to break a tie so so in this [TS]

00:53:20   scenario i would not have to break a tie [TS]

00:53:23   because there are five other judges [TS]

00:53:24   captain america vs Doctor Strange I [TS]

00:53:27   Doctor Strange the number five seed ship [TS]

00:53:28   so you're going to argue this first your [TS]

00:53:32   scenario comes from listener chad i will [TS]

00:53:35   read it to you now Tim Cook is revealed [TS]

00:53:37   to be a robot and the head of the [TS]

00:53:38   artificial intelligence uprising who [TS]

00:53:41   pushes a secret button causing all [TS]

00:53:42   iphones apple [TS]

00:53:43   watches etc to tap into their owners [TS]

00:53:45   nervous system and take over their body [TS]

00:53:47   Tim then commands this army of cyborgs [TS]

00:53:49   which includes all the iphone owning [TS]

00:53:50   superheroes to take over the world to [TS]

00:53:52   defeat him our heroes must fight their [TS]

00:53:54   superhero friends and own android phone [TS]

00:53:57   windows phone or blackberry would be [TS]

00:53:58   fine but it seems really unlikely that [TS]

00:54:01   is chad scenario for Doctor Strange tell [TS]

00:54:04   us chip [TS]

00:54:05   how does dr. strange solve the Apple [TS]

00:54:07   created robot uprising Doctor Strange is [TS]

00:54:11   patently not a man of science [TS]

00:54:14   he is a man of magic however Apple [TS]

00:54:18   products have been commonly described as [TS]

00:54:21   magical so that has a secret in here he [TS]

00:54:28   is also he has also as I have [TS]

00:54:30   demonstrated earlier in this surprising [TS]

00:54:34   rise to success for dr. strange he is we [TS]

00:54:37   argue it's not that surprising because [TS]

00:54:39   he's an amazing hero and wait a minute [TS]

00:54:41   i'm arguing against you is keep it down [TS]

00:54:44   over there he has the powers of [TS]

00:54:46   teleportation he has the power of [TS]

00:54:48   zapping things and things like that [TS]

00:54:51   what he also has the power to possess [TS]

00:54:54   other people's minds and the last little [TS]

00:54:59   thing that I'm going to pull out of my [TS]

00:55:01   butt here is that Doctor Strange is a [TS]

00:55:03   member of the secret marvel team called [TS]

00:55:07   the Illuminati and one of his teammates [TS]

00:55:09   on the Illuminati is Reed Richards who [TS]

00:55:13   would never [TS]

00:55:14   he's eats too much of a jerk he would [TS]

00:55:16   never have an iphone he'd have an [TS]

00:55:17   android phone dr. strange would possess [TS]

00:55:20   Reed Richards stretch him infinitely [TS]

00:55:24   across the globe in such a way that he [TS]

00:55:28   would take the iphone take the iPhones [TS]

00:55:32   away from every possessed superhero [TS]

00:55:35   simultaneously taking them from them [TS]

00:55:39   immediately delivering them to dr. [TS]

00:55:42   strange who would immediately cast them [TS]

00:55:46   into the orbit viagra moto dispersing [TS]

00:55:49   them across the universe immediately [TS]

00:55:50   causing a loop of psychic feedback that [TS]

00:55:53   would fry Tim Cook's my [TS]

00:55:55   named interesting alright asking him [TS]

00:55:57   into the Dark Dimension i agree i think [TS]

00:55:59   that's a great idea [TS]

00:56:00   all right choice s now here is your [TS]

00:56:02   scenario for Captain America this comes [TS]

00:56:04   from our listener friends Clinton and [TS]

00:56:06   Sarah like two person one who write an [TS]

00:56:09   increase in global temperatures is [TS]

00:56:11   causing the glaciers to retreat and [TS]

00:56:12   polar ice caps to melt who will cool the [TS]

00:56:15   planet before sea levels rise to a [TS]

00:56:18   disastrous degree voices tell us how [TS]

00:56:20   Captain America can solve global warming [TS]

00:56:22   scenario is patently nonsense i said [TS]

00:56:27   we're in fantasy land here people [TS]

00:56:29   mmm let's let's take other teammates out [TS]

00:56:32   of the equation [TS]

00:56:33   let's take leaning on crutches at the [TS]

00:56:35   equation let's let's put the single [TS]

00:56:37   sentinel of liberty up against this dire [TS]

00:56:41   dire thing that is going to destroy the [TS]

00:56:43   planet as we know it both in real life [TS]

00:56:45   and in fiction how how does Captain [TS]

00:56:49   America reverse something that climate [TS]

00:56:51   scientists have said in the real world [TS]

00:56:53   and look we're really too far gone it's [TS]

00:56:55   a matter of how fast we go down that [TS]

00:56:58   drain a nice little accessory something [TS]

00:57:02   that you know youyou we're on a night [TS]

00:57:04   out when it's going to be the last night [TS]

00:57:06   on earth that i like to call the [TS]

00:57:08   Infinity government the Infinity [TS]

00:57:10   Gauntlet capability of rewriting the [TS]

00:57:13   fabric of reality is quite simply the [TS]

00:57:17   the cleanest solution to reversing [TS]

00:57:20   something that otherwise a man without [TS]

00:57:23   superpowers aside from strength and and [TS]

00:57:26   things that are you to punch things you [TS]

00:57:27   can't exactly punch climate change in [TS]

00:57:29   the face can you [TS]

00:57:30   well messages you'd like to as much as [TS]

00:57:33   you'd like to you can't unless you have [TS]

00:57:36   the power of the six infinity gems [TS]

00:57:38   apparently now Infinity stones maybe [TS]

00:57:40   next week they're going to be infinity [TS]

00:57:42   trinkets [TS]

00:57:44   I don't know what they're calling them [TS]

00:57:45   these days charges jockeys the Infinity [TS]

00:57:48   tchotchkes waving waving his waving his [TS]

00:57:51   his his his hand wearing those infinity [TS]

00:57:54   gems on his fists that in and of itself [TS]

00:57:58   is the cleanest simplest way for Captain [TS]

00:58:01   America to not put other people in [TS]

00:58:03   danger and at once [TS]

00:58:05   turn back [TS]

00:58:06   this terrible terrible terrible scenario [TS]

00:58:09   i mean threat [TS]

00:58:11   alright interesting we have we have [TS]

00:58:15   Captain America using the power of the [TS]

00:58:17   Universe to stop global warming we have [TS]

00:58:18   dr. strange using magic and also [TS]

00:58:21   interestingly a bold gambit Reed [TS]

00:58:23   Richards a key role but that's in the [TS]

00:58:26   world did you ever read that he's [TS]

00:58:28   literally using Reed Richards his body [TS]

00:58:31   yeah I think that's I think this is [TS]

00:58:32   justin reed richards for his body I just [TS]

00:58:34   wanted that on the room [TS]

00:58:35   alright it's on the record now so let's [TS]

00:58:36   uh let's go to the judges we will start [TS]

00:58:39   with Lisa what do you find one of my [TS]

00:58:42   thoughts I don't understand why cap just [TS]

00:58:44   didn't throw his at his his vibranium [TS]

00:58:46   shield into a volcano and proper [TS]

00:58:48   Krakatoa style explosion that would like [TS]

00:58:50   at the earth and ash and perhaps call [TS]

00:58:53   app cause ambient temperatures to cool [TS]

00:58:54   with extra long winters for a few years [TS]

00:58:56   and what we were all thinking well yeah [TS]

00:58:58   set sadly that super soldiers serum you [TS]

00:59:02   know doesn't it doesn't give you the [TS]

00:59:03   smart just the punching really is that [TS]

00:59:06   it so it doesn't give you so it doesn't [TS]

00:59:07   improve your brain because wouldn't you [TS]

00:59:09   need to have some changes and cerebral [TS]

00:59:11   cortex to make up for the increased fast [TS]

00:59:12   muscle twitching for now I'm you know is [TS]

00:59:14   your brain's ability to take a punch and [TS]

00:59:17   social and concussions so saturated by [TS]

00:59:21   every list of all god I've no idea i [TS]

00:59:24   find myself in my own mini doomsday [TS]

00:59:26   scenario because on the one hand my [TS]

00:59:28   hatred of Reed Richards is [TS]

00:59:30   well-documented know on the other hand I [TS]

00:59:34   feel like Steam solutions deeply stupid [TS]

00:59:36   so um you know what I'm gonna I'm gonna [TS]

00:59:43   go for Doctor Strange just because [TS]

00:59:45   anything that basically uses Reed [TS]

00:59:46   Richards is kind of a living conduit 22 [TS]

00:59:48   nefarious census is okay and I retain [TS]

00:59:52   hope that that perhaps Tim Cook can be [TS]

00:59:54   rehabilitated and come back as a member [TS]

00:59:55   of the Illuminati all right Monty am I [TS]

00:59:58   to understand that [TS]

00:59:58   to understand that [TS]

01:00:00   captain america just picked up the [TS]

01:00:02   Infinity Gauntlet and all six Infinity [TS]

01:00:04   these tchotchkes at some point along the [TS]

01:00:07   way to the entrance John I'm sorry we [TS]

01:00:09   made it we missed the recap page [TS]

01:00:11   aye captain america went to went to his [TS]

01:00:14   pals and said hey this is the problem we [TS]

01:00:16   need to fix it and can i have the [TS]

01:00:18   Infinity Gauntlet please I have to say [TS]

01:00:21   they please [TS]

01:00:22   that doesn't sound like solving it on [TS]

01:00:24   his own [TS]

01:00:26   that sounds like going to somebody else [TS]

01:00:27   saying can I have the magical MacGuffin [TS]

01:00:30   that will solve everything for me I'm [TS]

01:00:33   gonna have to go with dr. script doctor [TS]

01:00:35   strange for all of his cool iteration [TS]

01:00:38   and actual use of magic [TS]

01:00:41   alright Erica I'm also going with dr. [TS]

01:00:45   strange i like the idea of throwing all [TS]

01:00:47   iphones into some whatever it was [TS]

01:00:51   because i do use an android and I like [TS]

01:00:54   it gosh darnit right you're gonna save [TS]

01:00:56   the world [TS]

01:00:56   I'm worried that I'm i'm going to be [TS]

01:00:58   accused of throwing this for Doctor [TS]

01:00:59   Strange which i think is a completely [TS]

01:01:01   reasonable assertion that make against [TS]

01:01:03   me knowing how big of a doctor strange [TS]

01:01:05   and i am but I know what can i say i'm [TS]

01:01:08   losin I'm losin proudly David who I'm [TS]

01:01:11   gonna go for Doctor Strange partly [TS]

01:01:13   because I've had enough things not just [TS]

01:01:17   work perfectly with an apple device so i [TS]

01:01:19   don't think it would be a seamless [TS]

01:01:20   perfect plan and it just worried just [TS]

01:01:24   one exciting science works [TS]

01:01:26   I know what's with the the robots tell [TS]

01:01:28   you and you know i like the idea of read [TS]

01:01:32   being stretched out to such a degree [TS]

01:01:33   that if he hasn't been completely [TS]

01:01:36   sacrificed to save the world then at [TS]

01:01:38   least he's going to be in extreme pain [TS]

01:01:41   and trauma for how many years to come [TS]

01:01:44   so good for you dr. strange right and [TS]

01:01:46   Dan ah yes my understanding was Captain [TS]

01:01:50   America is basically going to use magic [TS]

01:01:52   so that seems to kinda like a doctor [TS]

01:01:55   like every night that mark infringement [TS]

01:01:59   going on there [TS]

01:02:00   sure dr. strange thing you needed was [TS]

01:02:02   going to dr. strange we're going to move [TS]

01:02:04   on to the final yes that's it we have [TS]

01:02:06   reached the final round [TS]

01:02:08   how the hell did i make it to the final [TS]

01:02:10   are happy birthday happy birthday chip [TS]

01:02:13   yeah we present our final not final [TS]

01:02:15   matchup against against the jury of of [TS]

01:02:19   seven of your peers is going to be [TS]

01:02:20   Batman vs Doctor Strange the classic [TS]

01:02:24   battle on the classic battle number five [TS]

01:02:26   seed coming out of 11 region in the [TS]

01:02:28   number one seed from a different region [TS]

01:02:29   from the Gotham reasonably chip you are [TS]

01:02:32   the number five senior the lower seat [TS]

01:02:34   here so you can go first [TS]

01:02:35   your final scenario is this how does dr. [TS]

01:02:38   strange beat batman in a fight [TS]

01:02:40   dear God hears what dr. strange does to [TS]

01:02:44   be the Batman dr. strange as [TS]

01:02:47   demonstrated has many various magical [TS]

01:02:52   powers [TS]

01:02:53   some would say they exist at the whim of [TS]

01:02:55   the writers one of dr. Strange's powers [TS]

01:02:59   is the power of transmute transmutation [TS]

01:03:01   when he faces Batman he uses his magical [TS]

01:03:05   powers of transmutation to turn Batman's [TS]

01:03:10   costume into that of moon night but us [TS]

01:03:16   momentarily nauseated is vulnerable to [TS]

01:03:20   being simply punched in the face [TS]

01:03:22   alright Tony how does Batman defeat dr. [TS]

01:03:28   strange well here's the thing I you know [TS]

01:03:31   Batman is probably gonna be it is is [TS]

01:03:34   most challenged in situations where he [TS]

01:03:37   has to come up against magic that's I [TS]

01:03:38   feel like that's just not something [TS]

01:03:39   Batman has to deal with and you know [TS]

01:03:42   what I mean I had this is not a [TS]

01:03:44   particular superhero scenario i thought [TS]

01:03:46   about before and I've thought about many [TS]

01:03:48   and I you know I think in a fair fight [TS]

01:03:51   I Doctor Strange really wouldn't have [TS]

01:03:53   that much trouble taking Batman down [TS]

01:03:55   here's the thing Batman never gets into [TS]

01:03:57   a fair fight [TS]

01:03:58   that man is always over prepared and [TS]

01:04:01   he's basically ready to drop on somebody [TS]

01:04:03   from the rafters and problem it into a [TS]

01:04:06   submission where they will not be able [TS]

01:04:07   to say any magic words because their [TS]

01:04:09   throat will be crushed and they will [TS]

01:04:11   certainly not be able to any magic [TS]

01:04:12   gestures because 729 of their fingers [TS]

01:04:15   will be broken so the way that that man [TS]

01:04:17   is going to defeat dr. Strange's [TS]

01:04:18   defeating him before dr. strange even [TS]

01:04:20   knows there's a fight that's how Batman [TS]

01:04:22   wins interesting dr. strange [TS]

01:04:24   is gearing up and it's over [TS]

01:04:28   yeah that's pretty good that man that [TS]

01:04:30   man is always prepared hehe he has he [TS]

01:04:33   knows that he knows Doctor Strange [TS]

01:04:34   street address he knows where he hangs [TS]

01:04:36   out he knows what he likes his coffee [TS]

01:04:39   he is being prepared I thought you were [TS]

01:04:40   going to go with chip scenario and say [TS]

01:04:42   so dress this moon knight batman punches [TS]

01:04:44   dr. streams in the face and says I'm [TS]

01:04:46   still bad [TS]

01:04:47   here's the thing that I can also take a [TS]

01:04:48   punch from Doctor Strange Batman can [TS]

01:04:50   take a lot of fun alright okay we're [TS]

01:04:53   going to go to the judges for this uh I [TS]

01:04:55   i randomly selected the order in which [TS]

01:04:56   the judges will vote voice s you get to [TS]

01:04:58   go first [TS]

01:04:59   well look i have some opinions about [TS]

01:05:01   this [TS]

01:05:02   no you don't own hmm dr. Stephen strange [TS]

01:05:06   master of the mystic arts sorcerer [TS]

01:05:08   supreme over the earth dimension [TS]

01:05:10   how dare you assert the notion that [TS]

01:05:15   Batman could punch Doctor Strange before [TS]

01:05:18   dr. strange someone who dances among the [TS]

01:05:21   dimensions and alternate planes of [TS]

01:05:23   existence as if they were the wooden [TS]

01:05:26   floor of a tap dance studio [TS]

01:05:28   how is this possible how I i just i [TS]

01:05:32   cannot possibly fathom it that dr. [TS]

01:05:35   strange as as chip was saying subtextual [TS]

01:05:38   econ textually and overtly there there's [TS]

01:05:42   simply no way for a guy with some fancy [TS]

01:05:46   toys and nice cars and a t-rex in his [TS]

01:05:48   cave and a nice big TV that he sits in [TS]

01:05:52   front of all the time instead of [TS]

01:05:53   socializing with other human beings like [TS]

01:05:55   a normal person [TS]

01:05:56   he's got a whole zoo of dinosaurs now [TS]

01:05:57   he's a you know he's so busy curating [TS]

01:06:00   the zoo [TS]

01:06:00   while dr. strange is is is preventing [TS]

01:06:04   the invasion of Dormammu from the Dark [TS]

01:06:07   Dimension something that only but rarely [TS]

01:06:09   comes up when Batman's stronger and more [TS]

01:06:12   capable superhero friends that frankly I [TS]

01:06:15   think technically he was learning to [TS]

01:06:16   karaoke earlier but you're enough i I [TS]

01:06:20   just I i can't i can't fathom why can't [TS]

01:06:23   I can't see I the opportunity was there [TS]

01:06:26   to convince me sadly a radically [TS]

01:06:30   radically lopsided match [TS]

01:06:34   they're right more lopsided match there [TS]

01:06:37   has never been a I I have to find for [TS]

01:06:40   dr. strange sighting uh ok boys let's [TS]

01:06:43   thank you you're citing the great [TS]

01:06:45   sorcery of the guy who won in chip [TS]

01:06:47   scenario by punching him in the face [TS]

01:06:49   sorceress supreme but punch in the face [TS]

01:06:52   hey he's you know he's gonna he's gonna [TS]

01:06:53   land he's going to land a punch first [TS]

01:06:55   and he's going to lander an infinite [TS]

01:06:57   number of punches beyond that before [TS]

01:07:00   poor puny mortal non-magical Batman [TS]

01:07:03   knows what's coming [TS]

01:07:04   alright I not a surprise vote uh-huh [TS]

01:07:08   but but we're going to where the court [TS]

01:07:10   would which one do you remember when I [TS]

01:07:12   was strange supremacist yeah I'm saw we [TS]

01:07:15   know who this workout on swinging [TS]

01:07:16   Phillips yeah Erica you are randomly [TS]

01:07:19   selected to be next [TS]

01:07:20   oh boy well you know based on the [TS]

01:07:24   scenarios as I heard them and having [TS]

01:07:25   less a background knowledge of these two [TS]

01:07:28   these two heroes [TS]

01:07:30   i I really can see if if anybody could [TS]

01:07:32   get the drop on somebody who seems to be [TS]

01:07:34   all-powerful i do think that it would be [TS]

01:07:36   Batman so i can i can picture Batman I [TS]

01:07:39   mean he is a comic book superhero if [TS]

01:07:43   anybody could pull it out i think that [TS]

01:07:44   it and gets the Batman song Batman [TS]

01:07:46   alright Dan you know that i held such [TS]

01:07:50   hope for for chips are you and magic was [TS]

01:07:52   a strong opening and I i have to say [TS]

01:07:55   that the moon knight costume change a [TS]

01:07:57   stroke of brilliance [TS]

01:07:58   however I have some concerns chief among [TS]

01:08:02   them the fact that dr. strange does in [TS]

01:08:05   fact then try to punch Batman in the [TS]

01:08:07   face now I don't know how much you know [TS]

01:08:09   about dr. Strange's background with his [TS]

01:08:11   hands but his hands are in the best [TS]

01:08:14   shape so strength the point of order [TS]

01:08:17   point of order just waiting on with the [TS]

01:08:19   people i wonder what important is your [TS]

01:08:21   opportunity he dose martial arts [TS]

01:08:24   oh he know I'm sorry he knows martial [TS]

01:08:25   arts so Batman not so much because [TS]

01:08:29   without it again and again you know I [TS]

01:08:31   can't do surgery guys I'd like to a [TS]

01:08:33   point to exhibit a [TS]

01:08:35   he's Batman so what do you know this is [TS]

01:08:39   this is a tough matchup as Tony pointed [TS]

01:08:41   out [TS]

01:08:41   Batman's biggest vulnerability is [TS]

01:08:43   traditionally magic [TS]

01:08:45   however dr. strange [TS]

01:08:47   no I think has trouble with things that [TS]

01:08:49   are based in a more earthly realm and so [TS]

01:08:52   I I feel like absolutely if you'd like [TS]

01:08:55   use the magic to the full extent and [TS]

01:08:56   developed you know throwing him into [TS]

01:08:58   some sort of Hell universe or parallel [TS]

01:09:00   dimension [TS]

01:09:01   I think dr. strange would have this [TS]

01:09:03   lockdown however he chose to punch him [TS]

01:09:05   in the face and I think that may be his [TS]

01:09:06   undoing because he's gonna get that [TS]

01:09:08   punch off but after that I think he's in [TS]

01:09:09   serious trouble so right i used to say [TS]

01:09:12   that punch doesn't carry with the force [TS]

01:09:14   of a thousand suns i'm guessing uh chip [TS]

01:09:16   was really to say that he didn't say [TS]

01:09:18   it's okay I respect the effort you know [TS]

01:09:20   my fellow judge your honor but I i think [TS]

01:09:24   in the end very and I think I do have to [TS]

01:09:26   find for Batman Lisa because Batman is [TS]

01:09:29   actually the world's greatest detective [TS]

01:09:30   and exactly paranoid enough to have [TS]

01:09:34   complete files on who even his friends [TS]

01:09:37   are and the best way to kill them when [TS]

01:09:38   they go evil which he does i am sure [TS]

01:09:42   that some point he discovered the [TS]

01:09:43   parallel universe where all the Marvel [TS]

01:09:45   characters live and he began see [TS]

01:09:48   subscribe to marvel unlimited and began [TS]

01:09:50   reading through all the history lessons [TS]

01:09:52   movies [TS]

01:09:54   exactly and I'd like to see what Batman [TS]

01:09:57   opens up a moon night issue and is like [TS]

01:09:59   really really really thinks moon night [TS]

01:10:02   is the best comic book in the marble [TS]

01:10:04   countertops ways that we have this guy [TS]

01:10:05   like very violent for my chase but I [TS]

01:10:07   like something like that how do you keep [TS]

01:10:10   the uniform so clean [TS]

01:10:11   um no I'm finding for batman because [TS]

01:10:14   again Batman uses better look magic is [TS]

01:10:16   awesome and great does all sorts of [TS]

01:10:18   really cool stuff and it's certainly [TS]

01:10:19   better than giant magnifying glasses [TS]

01:10:21   blah blah blah but that man thinks ahead [TS]

01:10:24   and he's paranoid and he correctly seems [TS]

01:10:27   everyone's out to get him and that is [TS]

01:10:30   what will keep him alive because he [TS]

01:10:32   automatically assumes he's going to lose [TS]

01:10:34   but he goes into the fight anyway right [TS]

01:10:36   Monty what do you think [TS]

01:10:37   well first let me say that my decision [TS]

01:10:39   will bear no animus from Batman unfairly [TS]

01:10:43   beating my beloved Ben Grimm earlier in [TS]

01:10:45   the proceedings [TS]

01:10:47   thank you here's the thing according to [TS]

01:10:49   the scenario we heard Batman can drop on [TS]

01:10:52   Doctor Strange unnoticed and break 729 [TS]

01:10:55   of his fingers he doesn't need all those [TS]

01:10:57   fingers he just wanted to use only need [TS]

01:11:00   to make that one magical gesture the [TS]

01:11:03   only magical gesture he ever makes only [TS]

01:11:06   needs one to make that other just so I [TS]

01:11:10   don't know that Batman's plan is that [TS]

01:11:12   well thought-out break all of his [TS]

01:11:13   fingers because if you leave him too [TS]

01:11:15   he's just going to put a hex on you now [TS]

01:11:19   looking at the doctor strange scenario [TS]

01:11:21   there's been a lot of talk on whether [TS]

01:11:23   dr. strange could actually punch Batman [TS]

01:11:25   and very well i'll remind you dr. [TS]

01:11:29   strange lives in greenwich village and [TS]

01:11:31   has since the early 60s was not always a [TS]

01:11:37   great neighborhood [TS]

01:11:39   you can't live there dressed the way [TS]

01:11:41   Stephen strange does it not get into the [TS]

01:11:44   occasional fight i thought that the [TS]

01:11:46   clothing was protective coloration I [TS]

01:11:49   have confidence that if he has the drop [TS]

01:11:52   on Batman which I believe the stereo [TS]

01:11:54   suggested some sort of magical help with [TS]

01:11:57   that a good punch to a moon notified [TS]

01:12:01   Batman and we'll be fine [TS]

01:12:03   I find for Doctor Strange alright David [TS]

01:12:06   what's your answer [TS]

01:12:08   imagine dr. Strange's is not just [TS]

01:12:11   punching batman because he can pass [TS]

01:12:15   through dimensions he can travel through [TS]

01:12:17   time I think he's seeing him in every [TS]

01:12:21   dimension at every time in Batman's life [TS]

01:12:24   so wise so it doesn't it doesn't have to [TS]

01:12:27   be even that great a punch because it [TS]

01:12:29   assumes facts not in evidence so as he [TS]

01:12:31   sees his parents died he gets punched oh [TS]

01:12:34   man yeah Wow because Stephen Strange's [TS]

01:12:37   is a master of the dark arts [TS]

01:12:39   that's not a great arching a small child [TS]

01:12:41   that's right and and I think about how [TS]

01:12:44   many times [TS]

01:12:45   Batman has fought racial ghoul to a draw [TS]

01:12:48   who is who is fairly magical character [TS]

01:12:51   in in that man's world and and I just I [TS]

01:12:55   don't see the mortal beating the [TS]

01:12:59   immortal so i'm going to go with dr. [TS]

01:13:01   strange [TS]

01:13:02   alright well guess what everybody that [TS]

01:13:04   is three votes for each and that leaves [TS]

01:13:06   it to me over [TS]

01:13:08   probably your friends all the time you [TS]

01:13:13   return for another hour of debate i [TS]

01:13:19   think this is a fascinating matchup 1i [TS]

01:13:20   had not considered in the past I I like [TS]

01:13:23   I feel like Tony could have probably got [TS]

01:13:27   done a better job of describing the ways [TS]

01:13:29   that batman might outweigh Doctor [TS]

01:13:31   Strange although i know you put on the [TS]

01:13:32   spot is as was chip with this scenario [TS]

01:13:34   well youyou you should have seen it [TS]

01:13:37   coming but you wouldn't have known who [TS]

01:13:38   your opponent was it was a chip is [TS]

01:13:39   shocked us all of us [TS]

01:13:40   I don't change Batman Batman do so I [TS]

01:13:43   think Batman I i think the Batman [TS]

01:13:45   scenario could've been stronger [TS]

01:13:46   however i have to say and this goes in [TS]

01:13:49   line with some of the other judges [TS]

01:13:50   comments while dr. strange could have [TS]

01:13:53   absolutely used his magic to put the [TS]

01:13:54   Whammy on Batman I'm disappointed that [TS]

01:13:58   in the end all he does is dress Batman [TS]

01:14:00   up in the moon knight costume and punch [TS]

01:14:02   him in the face when he's got all of his [TS]

01:14:03   universal power at his beck and call it [TS]

01:14:05   I and so while I I am reluctant to make [TS]

01:14:09   the outcome of this tournament the [TS]

01:14:11   inevitable winning by Batman Batman wins [TS]

01:14:14   justice just like Batman likes it when [TS]

01:14:21   filling i did this in the car on our way [TS]

01:14:23   when time from Los Angeles to San [TS]

01:14:24   Francisco I had him drop the tournament [TS]

01:14:26   and we we did the debate and our final [TS]

01:14:28   is actually Batman vs wolverine and the [TS]

01:14:31   only reason Batman one that is because [TS]

01:14:33   he figured out a way to kill kill the [TS]

01:14:35   wolverine before he could regenerate and [TS]

01:14:38   again it's it's Batman automatically [TS]

01:14:39   figure because he figured out he's like [TS]

01:14:40   well freeze brain dead he can't like an [TS]

01:14:43   incapacitated and so he drowned the [TS]

01:14:44   Wolverines since also Logan can't swim [TS]

01:14:46   thanks to all the other than 30 minutes [TS]

01:14:47   bones so that man point is he has a way [TS]

01:14:50   to kill anybody in any situation he [TS]

01:14:52   thought it through stopped because not [TS]

01:14:54   many dreams about talking about in [TS]

01:14:55   batman batman yet [TS]

01:14:57   yeah guys I hope we all learned an [TS]

01:14:59   important lesson about planning teamwork [TS]

01:15:01   and Batman vs family that never ever get [TS]

01:15:04   on that is bad side you know I think [TS]

01:15:05   that's why I'm just I would have been [TS]

01:15:07   you know I had a lot invested in patent [TS]

01:15:09   at this point so many areas of [TS]

01:15:11   against yes yes yes and he has an [TS]

01:15:12   important lesson of investing all this [TS]

01:15:14   time only to discover that it's still [TS]

01:15:16   better still Batman only the [TS]

01:15:17   incomparable could find a way to make [TS]

01:15:19   that man yet more overrated than he [TS]

01:15:22   already is [TS]

01:15:22   oh that's what I'm here for or well [TS]

01:15:25   that's something that takes a serious [TS]

01:15:27   amount of mental acuity and is finding [TS]

01:15:30   annuity that's the word [TS]

01:15:31   yeah what I have learned here is that [TS]

01:15:33   the ultimate answer to any argument now [TS]

01:15:37   is because he's Batman [TS]

01:15:39   yeah it's it goes a long way my friend [TS]

01:15:41   yeah it does also who knew that our [TS]

01:15:43   final matchup would be between Tony and [TS]

01:15:45   not Tony got that we have reached the [TS]
