Here at “The Alternate Reality” we indulge in a weekly round table discussion/good natured debate of cool comics, movies, TV and other pop culture related foolishness. Recorded in the heart of beautiful downtown Mount Greenwood at the Alternate Reality Studio Center, “The Alternate Reality” is hosted by our regular contributors of south-sides sages and the occasional guest. We’re coming to you weekly so give us a listen at the player link below, or click here to download.

The Terrific Trio (minus Adan) are joined by guest Jason. Teaching history and political concepts through comics. Comics response to 9/11 and other at the time current events that are now history. Creator’s political points of view matriculate into
their work whether they want them to or not. Light touches as opposed to heavy touches in storytelling. Captain America in the 1950’s and how he was brought back in the 70’s to make a political statement. Richard Nixon and the Secret Empire and how that was a Watergate parallel at the time. Spiderman as a role model for the archetypical “good neighbor. “Muties” as metaphorical social commentary. Was Superman vs Muhammad Ali-social commentary or just a gimmick? Steve Rogers as a terrorist, Sam Wilson saving illegal immigrants and the evolving face of Captain America.
