Episode 313 - League of Champions #6

Episode 313: League of Champions #6

Giant superhero seeks giant super villain to fight. Must have own easily breakable doomsday weapon.

A comic based on a tabletop RPG based on the superhero comic genre? It sounds like a great idea in concept but actually, that's a terrible lie. It was the eighties so go with me here. Instead what we get is the adventures of the alleged superhero team known as The Champions (Rich White Guy, Big Guy, Iceman Clone, Blonde Victim Girl, Redhead Victim Girl, Brunette Victim Girl and Senile Grandfather) as they take on the subtly named organisation DEMON (hint: they might be evil) and their leader, Lifetime Movie Of The Week Man. But that's not all, as we have a character development subplot that not only never goes anywhere but is basically forgotten within the same issue. Add in a Batman Cosplayer, a nagging Dependant NPC and a Generic Immortal Evil Sorceress and you have the regrettable experience that is the League of Champions!
