Happy holidays, Rioters! It’s Boxing Day so Geek Girl Riot’s going ten rounds with the latest superheroes: Titans, Runaways, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Once Upon a Deadpool, Aquaman, the Elseworlds crossover event, and The Umbrella Academy!
Towering Titans + Runaway(s) Writers First up we’re marveling at the monster turnaround of DC’s Titans—we started out with no hope for this series but by episode 5 things started to get brighter than Starfire’s (Anna Diop) Party City wig. Sherin and Philip discuss why it’s so much better now…then Sherin, Philip, and Alex get into how Runaways S2 has gotten so much worse. We don’t know what happened but we think S1’s writers might have Runaway themselves. Our Rioters break down the sudden emergence of harmful stereotypes and the switching of roles and relationships.
