BatChat With Matt & Will: Id, Ego and Super(boy’s)ego (w/ Josh Weil)

Welcome to teen hero comics of the 90s. It’s a very very mixed bag. For all the charm that some have, some… don’t. Friend of the show and Patreon backer Josh Weil really wanted to talk about Impulse #50, so we found some other stories of teen heroes in the 90s and Batman, specifically the teen heroes of Young Justice. This gave Will his first non-Star Trek exposure to two time GLAAD award winning writer Peter Allen David and another go around with Joe Kelly. And he was not too happy about it. But a good time was had by all in the talking, and that’s what really counts.

  • Young Justice: Origins (Young Justice V.1 #1-6)
  • First Fool’s (Impulse #50)
  • Silent, But Deadly (Superboy V.4 #85)

Be sure to check out this week’s BatChat column, where we look at Detective Comics #1,066, The Batman/Scooby-Doo Mysteries #2 and Batman: The Audio Adventures #3.

Matt Lazorwitz read his first comic at the age of five. It was Who's Who in the DC Universe #2, featuring characters whose names begin with B, which explains so much about his Batman obsession. He writes about comics he loves, and co-hosts the creator interview podcast WMQ&A with Dan Grote.

Will Nevin loves bourbon and AP style and gets paid to teach one of those things. He is on Twitter far too often.
