Smash Fiction is a debate-style comedy podcast in which a rotating cast of nerds argue on behalf of their chosen fictional characters. Only one can win!

Sep 12, 2016

When a bomb threat goes unheeded during a swag police fundraiser, it's a good thing to have a superhero on hand. After all, comic book police officers can't protect themselves from much of anything; hell, the chief  himself usually doesn't even know about his daughter being a vigilante, and couldn't do anything about it if he did. Unfortunately, you can have too much of a good thing, and while one superhero is great in a crisis (non-infinite variety, thank you very much) two can be a real problem. Especially when they do what superheroes always do: start fighting each other instead of the bad guys because...well, it was all a big misunderstanding.

In this case, the Bat-family's resident detective/martial-artist/super-genius, Barbara Gordon, and the web-slinging, music-loving, slang-tossing protector of Earth-65 New York, Gwen Stacy, mistake each other for the potential bomber and immediately start to go at it (no, not that way, shippers, sorry). Will Batgirl use her equipment, experience and extreme edginess to defeat her opponent, or will Spider-Gwen's strength, questionable karate chops, and intensely bright color palette prevail?

Featuring a ridiculously unfair initiative contest, an extensive explanation of kung fu, and the truly unique reveal of who actually called in the bomb threat, and why (hint: It involves lightning.)
