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!

Dec 11, 2016

He may have spun off into his own solo series, but Colin "Stormtongue" Mulkerin is always up for a good old nostalgic crossover! Bringing with him the intrepid Brad Bultman, Colin returns to Smash Fiction to answer another of the most important questions: When Bob, Helen, Dash, and Violet Parr, collectively known as the Incredibles (along with their friend, Frozone), find themselves in the city of San Fransokyo during a massive prison break, what will happen when they get into the inevitable "each team thinks the other team are supervillains" fight with Hiro Hamada, Baymax, Honey Lemon, GoGo, Wasabi, and Fred -- Big Hero 6?

Will technological genius prevail over the inherent qualities of "being super?" Does the power of family and fashionable costuming trump the power of friendship and SCIENCE? Is The Incredibles actually promoting the elitist idea that human worth is conveyed by birthright, as opposed to Big Hero 6's apparent dedication to the concept of people creating their own worth through hard work and ingenuity? Actually, that last question isn't answered here, although there is a critical discussion of both films from a progressive gender studies perspective... and the question of what makes someone "worthy" does come up, though maybe not in the way you think...

...but hey, Kit defends stoners (kind of), Dan makes it incredibly clear that he has read way, way too many comic books, and MeganBob tells us how she really feels about children. Justice is served.
