    #454 - The History of Marvel In New York w/ The Bowery Boys Podcast

    10/07/2020 Duration: 01h10min

    When you think of Marvel, what is the first place that comes to mind? Though the answer will vary from fan to fan, many will no doubt answer New York City. From Spider-Man swinging across the Manhattan skyline, to the Fantastic Four’s Headquarters in Midtown, to the real-life Marvel offices which have always touched the island metropolis, Marvel’s DNA is tightly wound with New York’s. Today, Ryan and Lorraine speak to Greg Young, host of The Bowery Boys podcast, about Marvel’s storied history in the city that never sleeps.  Throw in some news, as well as a sneak peek from host of Marvel’s Voices Angélique Roché at her upcoming interviews with Chris Claremont and Marlon James on the reprint of God Loves, Man Kills, and you’ve got yourself a jam-packed episode! 0:49 - News17:47 - God Loves, Man Kills Spotlight 25:48 - Interview With Greg Young60:24 - Community

    Once upon a time you’d pop some coins in a Hulk-sized machine to live out the fantasy of fighting as the X-Men for just a few minutes. Today, you can put Iron Man’s suit on for 8+ hours (though you should definitely take breaks) from the comfort of your own home. In this episode, Marvel’s Iron Man VR director Ryan Payton joins Ryan and Lorraine to discuss the making of this incredible game.  Plus, thanks to a listener question, writers Alex Segura and Jan Michael Friedman are taking us where we’ve never gone before, as we look at Marvel’s under-appreciated history of comics based on the only TV show that could have predicted such an amazing future: Star Trek!   0:42 - News5:57 - Community 38:22 - Iron Man VR Interview w/ Ryan Payton
