Minute Thirty: From Coulson’s Input to The Other’s Question

Matthew Costello, author of Secret Identity Crisis: Comic books and the Unmasking of Cold War America, joins us in this episode!

In the thirtieth minute of The Avengers

The relationship between Steve and Agent Coulson is central to our conversation here. How does it play for Steve as the man out of time? It’s interesting how he reads the stars and stripes as old-fashioned. Is that his understanding of the modern era? Phil acts as the audience surrogate here, helping us (and Steve) connect to what’s going on in the world here.

We also get to talk about the odd lair Loki’s managed to put together (in just two days!). They’re very busy. How is Loki doing his thing with Sanctuary? Or did they notify him they wanted to chat? Why does The Other seem to be Jawa-sized and we only see his top half? What the heck is going on here? Tune in!
