LISTEN!

No new Quackcast this week so we're going retro.

Sorry guys… 334 didn't record correctly. I only discovered that while editing. Two Quackcasts we'd recorded didn't work, TWO in a row: the spare AND the current one! I don't check them right after I've done them because they always work… For some reason my audio recording program decided to switch to recording me from the wrong microphone, which was turned off, so half the Quackcast audio wasn't there.
So instead I've re-uploaded this old Quackcast again. It had previously been deleted due to some dickishness by Wowio. Enjoy vintage Banes and Ozone from 2012!

Summary:
Banes and Ozoneocean round off the topic of superheroes, beating that wonderhorse to death well and truly. There's a lot of reminiscing here about ancient superhero pop-culture and along the way we discuss silver age and golden age comics, supervillains, second stringer superheroes and why the remain that way, the gender and culture appeal of some characters, evolution of superheroes towards realism and grit, then webcomic superheroes, especially those on DD, and then finish up with why we like superheroes. Sidekick Captain-Ozone continues to echo disturbingly from the void while the real hero, Ultra-Banes, continues to bring the humour. We decide that it all comes back to Superman and Batman, who are the ultimate prototypes for the two main types of superheroes: super, good, and perfect Vs normal, flawed, and human.

Yup, you get a lovely original Quast from 2012 instead :D It's hard to believe we've been Quasting this long!

Nice! Wow, 2012? I can't believe how time has rocketed by. Faster than a speedin damn bullet.

It's really a shame that two quasts have disappeared. Who knows what brilliance was contained therein? But a quality rerun like this deserves another listen.
