The year was 1998, and Marvel had a big hit on their hands with the movie BLADE. But they also had one of the most notorious bombs ever with NICK FURY: AGENT OF SHIELD, a cheesy failed TV pilot starring David Hasselhoff from BAYWATCH as a cigar-chomping, jokester super spy who fights overacting Nazi bad guys who want to destroy the world with a super virus.

NICK FURY: AGENT OF SHIELD is one of Marvel's biggest misfires, but could it be that it was actually... CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take you through the weird origin of this weird project, and consider the possibility that campy superheroes are just as valid as the serious ones, as our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS CONTINUES!

The Marvel superhero BLADE is half man, half vampire, all badass. And after he starred in his groundbreaking movie trilogy, which spawned the superhero movie boom we're stilling living in today, he made the journey to the small screen with BLADE: THE SERIES, starring Sticky Fingaz as the title hero, Jill Wagner as an undercover vampire, and Richard Roundtree as Blade's dad!

It was action-packed and full of blood, gore and nudity, but was BLADE: THE SERIES... Canceled Too Soon? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dissect the undead corpse of this short-lived action show from the Spike channel, and reveal what works, what sucks, and why BLADE: THE SERIES is basically just a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's NOTORIOUS, as our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS continues!

The late, legendary Stan Lee helped reboot and recreate the superhero SOLARMAN for a very, very, VERY short-lived comic book series, and a failed cartoon pilot about dweeby comic book nerd whose dad wishes he was more into sports, and who turns into a fantabulous hunk of a hero! He teams up with a stupid robot and fights a bad guy who uses a death ray that destroys suns to save up for the day when he REALLY tries to be evil.

SOLARMAN can be easily defeated by a slightly cloudy day, but was he... CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold delve into this failed pilot, which was made in 1986, released in 1989 and then re-released in 1992 (just in case), and figure out what the heck is up with it. Is SOLARMAN a great hero who got overlooked by history, or is he just kinda lame?

You'll find out as our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS continues!

Our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS turned tragic this week, so we begin our episode with a eulogy for Stan Lee, the co-creator of most of our most beloved Marvel comics characters, and eventually created a multimedia empire. But along that journey to box office billions there many missteps, and boy howdy, was GENERATION X one of them.

This failed pilot for a live-action, teen-oriented X-MEN primetime series was a gaudy fiasco that has more in common with Batman begins than the GENERATION X comic books, and it never made it past the pilot episode.

But was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold walk you through this weird mish-mash of 1990s hipness on the latest episode, as chosen by our Patreon subscribers!

Not every chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a success. Despite the best efforts of Disney, Marvel and ABC, MARVEL'S INHUMANS takes some of the most fascinating characters from the Fantastic Four comics and drops them in the middle of a boring adventure series about classist a-holes who oppress an entire civilization into manual labor because their powers aren't cool enough... and they're the GOOD guys.

Was MARVEL'S INHUMANS a great idea ruined by bad filmmaking, or was it doomed from the very start? And most importantly, was it CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold give you the troubled history of this Mighty Marvel Misfire and break down what works, what broke down, and why nobody cared.

Our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS begins! Marvel movies and Marvel tv shows rule the world today, but there was a time when the comic book company struggled to get into the multimedia marketplace.

And so we got weird esoteric ephemera like the animated series FRED AND BARNEY MEET THE THING, in which the rocky superhero from the Fantastic Four goes on solo adventures with a group of teenagers, and turns into a teenager himself, using magic rings and a rhyming enchantment.

Does this Thing thing do its thing? And was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics Bibbs and Witney delve deep into Ben Grimm's bizarre existential crisis and analyze every dumb thing about this insanely dumb show, which also features anthropomorphic cats and lots and lots and LOTS of octopi.
