We’re taking a break before the season seven playoffs for some very nerdy trivia with some special guests from the iFanboy podcast network! We were lucky enough to be joined by Josh Flanagan, Conor Kilpatrick, and their recurring guest and science-expert Dr. Ryan Haupt for a match tailored just for them! After a trip to Amity for a game of My Champion, we’ll quiz about the history of the use of the famous ‘morphing’ effect across the history of movies and TV. In round two, we’ll go DEEP into comic book lore with a round about early versions of superheroes we know from movies and TV. All this, plus an epic lightning round!

Fate is set by a loom,
A pathway out of workaday gloom.
From a story by Miller,
He’ll be trained as a killer,
With a mentor straight out of a tomb.
In the 2008 movie version of Wanted, a secret group of assassins kills people according to the dictates of a loom of fate. Joining this group is a way out of a dull, colorless life as an accounts manager for the main character, Wesley Gibson. The movie was loosely adapted from a comic book written by Mark Millar. Wesley is trained as an assassin largely by the mysterious Fox, played by Angelina Jolie, who played Lara Croft, the Tomb Raider, in two earlier movies.
