This Week in Marvel 81st Birthday

It's Marvel's 81st birthday, and This Week in Marvel is making it a podcast party! Ryan "Agent M" Penagos, Lorraine Cink, and James Monroe Inglehart all joined forces for a spectacular celebration of Marvel through the decades, from the very first comic it ever published to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and more!

It's such a big episode that it had to be summarized in an acrostic poem:

Mighty Marvel Insider Mania
Artists like Jack Kirby and Joe Simon
Reveal of the Marvel-Fortnite Crossover
Various heroes from Captain America to Runaways
Eighty-One Years of Stories!
Literally so many heroes… X-Men, Hulk, Daredevil, Thor… SO MANY HEROES!

There's even a reading list of Marvel Comics to go along with it! Listen to the full episode below:
