90s nostalgia and failed superhero movies take center stage on this week’s contest! That’s appropriate, given the presence of comic experts Matt Wilson, Chris Sims, and Benito Cereno from the world’s most destructive comic book and pop culture podcast: War Rocket Ajax.

After a brief discussion of several characters’ Zoom skills, they’ll take a trivia dive into the dark recesses of syndicated TV shows from the 1990s.

The competition heats up even further when they are quizzed on the worst superhero movies ever made. You won’t believe some of the disasters that this game will drudge up!

With some tailor-made categories for round three, it all comes down to the lightning round where our players really get a chance to show their stuff!
