SIDEBAR: Jon Favreau Is My Stepdad

**SPOILER WARNING FOR SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME**

Todd and Andrew saw Spider-Man: Far From Home and oh my God now it’s time to geek out over it. Does Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio top Keaton’s Vulture? What is the future of the MCU now that the Avengers are gone? Could J.K. Simmons dethrone Rami Malek as our new God-King? It’s very possible all of these questions have answers. It’s also very possible we just spent 35 minutes talking about the now-very-real ship of Happy & Aunt May.

Episode 33: Make America Gotta Go Fast...Again

Oh Sonic...our very fast boy with a very complicated past. He’s been a street fighter, an Olympic athlete, a zero gravity surfboard racer, and even a knight facing off against King Arthur. We decided to give everyone’s favorite blue hedgehog yet another second chance by fixing some of Sonic’s more pained gimmicks. Our crack team of armchair-quarterbacking game designers are proposing massive overhauls to Sonic and The Secret Rings, the Werehog, and the edgy ‘dark’ version of Sonic whose power is gun-having.

FLAVOR TEXT: Magic: The Gathering (Pt. 2)

On Part 2 of our journey through the lore of Magic: The Gathering, we cover everything after The Great Mending up to where the story stands today. Our main focus is the Gatewatch, the unlikely alliance of demi-gods that consists of an All-American quarterback, a lovestruck wizard, a goth necromancer, and one very swole cat.

The art behind Magic is still really tight! Here’s this episode’s rad image album.

Episode 32: Please Stop Trying to Domesticate My Near-Sighted Son

Yeah, sure, your pet is your best friend because and they provide you with unrequited love and companionship, yada yada yada. But your dog would be waaay cooler if it could breathe fire.

Episode 31: The Waaahmazing Whimsy of Wario and Waluigi

From Dinosaur Blade Runner to CG hedgehogs with real human teeth, we here at Debate This! unequivocally love when video games get adapted to other things. So this week, we’re asking what video game could be the next great cinematic masterpiece. Will it be the anime-esque adventures of Monster Hunter, the hilariously unoriginal space-pirate-ninja drama from Blood Wake, or the very smelly misadventures of Nintendo’s dirty boys Wario and Waluigi?

Debate This! is going on the road...kind of! Come see us at CORGS-Con on Saturday, June 1, at the Makoy Center in Hilliard, OH. We’ll be hanging out and giving away free merch!

Episode 30: Two Baldwins Deep (ft. Giovanni Colantonio)

The 1993 film Super Mario Bros is notorious for 1) being very bad, and 2) inadvertently creating a sub-genre of crappy movie adaptations of popular video games. So this week, we’re finally going to right this wrong and re-shoot the Mario Bros movie the right way. Problem is, we don’t actually create new concepts, we just steal from the likes of Wes Anderson, Martin Scorsese, and...the dudes from Super Troopers. Thank God we brought in guest expert Giovanni Colantonio to help pen this masterpiece.

You can listen to more of Giovanni talking about video games on Left Trigger Right Trigger, or check out Fullmetal Bazinga, an improvised science-fiction audio drama based on the final season of the Big Bang Theory!

**HUGE MASSIVE SPOILER WARNING FOR AVENGERS: ENDGAME**

The release of Avengers: Endgame marks the end of an 11-year saga. A saga which, quite frankly, many of us thought would never actually work out. But much like our 20s (excluding Matt), the Avengers saga is done, and we are now left only with one underlying question: What happens now? The boys spend their time sharing their thoughts about what’s next for the MCU, as well as impressions and hot takes after seeing the movie.

Episode 29: In Between Pennywise Thighs

The Top Generals of the World’s Military need our help! The R&D department of Debate ThisI Corp. has been tasked with developing a new weaponized vehicle, so naturally we’re going to pull blueprints from games because that is a totally normal thing to do. Instead of boring old helicopters, how about the AV-49 Wasp from Halo? Why drive that tank when you could fire napalm from a reinforced ice cream truck? Bomber planes not providing the ummph you need? This warp star is guaranteed to provide much more explode-ier results!

Episode 28: Agent Kirby’s Pillow Palace

DC’s Blackest Night arc in the mid-2000s finally accomplished the thing that 30 years of comics preceding it couldn’t—it finally made the Green Lantern cool by adding other Lanterns of different colors of the spectrum. So we decided to overlay some of our favorite Smash Bros characters onto these lesser-known Lanterns to make some truly unstoppable forces. We’ve got a zombified R.O.B. that worships death, an Incineroar with rage-induced bloodfire vomit, and everyone’s favorite eldritch horror, Kirby!
