The geeks (For this edition they were Helen and Steve, Claire, Hat, Matt and Regie) got together to select their very own super-teams - who chose what, and how many times did Steve pick Simon Pegg?
Here's how it broke down:
Helen picked Mal Reynolds, Captain of the Firefly class transport ship Serenity - from the TV show Firefly and the Movie Serenity. If you don't know these science fiction gems, you should seek them out.
Steve Picked Nick Angel, the Super Cop in a small English village from the movie Hot Fuzz.
Claire Picked Toothless the dragon from the movie How to train your Dragon.
Hat picked the Marvel super-hero America Chavez. She noted that although America is a character from modern times, she did, in her first solo issue, travel through time to punch Hitler. This is her doing that:
Matt Chose Indianna Jones - and if we need to explain who that is you're listening to the wrong show...
Regie picked The Doctor - making it clear that he wasn't picking any itteration of The Doctor specifically (they're all The Doctor, after all) but that he was perfectly happy with the current version, Doctor 13. (And again, if you don't know who The Doctor is, you're probably listening to the wrong show.
Steve picked Chewbacca. You know, the big walking carpet. (And again, really, if you don't know who he is this is not the show for you - but also, really, we're impressed you've avoided Star Wars to this degree.)
Hat picked Keylith from Critical Role. And no, none of the rest of us had heard of her either, but here she is:
Matt picked the Barry Allen silver age Flash.
Regie picked Batgirl - this is the version he specified:
He mentioned that this version was better than the newer costume as seen here:
Helen picked John Wick -
Claire picked Aloy
Hat picked Selene from Person of Interest
Matt picked the version of Batman from Grant Morrison's run on JLA
Regie picked Riri Williams aka "Ironheart"
Helen picked Shuri from Black Panther
Steve picked mayor of New York from Deus Ex Machina
