Superman. Batman. Spiderman. Iron Man. X Men. The list of heroes and the groups that that they belong to has historically ended with the suffix "man"
Today on the Reel Debaters we a trending away from all things masculine and celebrating the female superhero and all their glory.
The scenario is this: For the day you are given Nick Furries ( think GM of a sports franchise if you don't know who he is) duties to assemble a 4 person superhero team, sort of a football fantasy draft for comic book personalities if you will. Who is your lead female hero and why. We left everything on the table when it came to how we were allowed to pick and argue. Hero or Villain didn't matter. We allowed personality traits and all powers and capabilities as well as we are not limited to any superhero dynasty ( Marvel or DC, was fair game) and prove your argument as to why your pick is the most badass of them all
Characters Being argued are from the movies Suicide Squad, Dr Strange, Thor Ragnarok and the X Men series
In the living room this week in order of least to most facial hair are Martin Navarro, Mark Cowell, Chris Stanton and Micheal Petrow.
Trailer of the week: Spiderman , Far from Home
SPOILER ALERT: This week on our catch up and what did watch portion we've all finally seen Avengers; Endgame so if you still have yet to see it skip to the second hour of the show, this went DEEP!

Welcome to The Reel Debaters, where real life meets reel life...
Each week you’ll hear 4 debaters sit down as they come up with a new tussle where they compare, contrast and insult each other with their takes for your listening pleasure. They'll either insert themselves into a story or see how they fare or bring the characters into real life scenarios that make less than no sense. As a bonus you'll get access from within the film industry and listen to "reel talks" about our favorite moments, scenes and stories.
Tune Thursday for a new episode and if there’s something you wanna hear beaten to death send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org
