“Comic Book Men” is taking on one of the greatest debates of all in its upcoming episode: who is the ultimate superhero arch-nemesis?
“Green Goblin, of course, is Spider-Man’s biggest foe. He’s kind of Spider-Man’s Joker,” Smith says.
Flanagan counters, “I think he’s even more heinous than the Joker. I mean, he killed his first love Gwen Stacy, and years later Spider-Man found out that Norman Osborn — that Green Goblin — had an affair with a young Gwen Stacy and got her pregnant.
That’s why I say the Green Goblin trumps what the Joker has been able to do to Batman because, yeah, Joker killed Robin, but at least he didn’t impregnate him.”
In “Dukes of Jersey,” a “Dukes of Hazzard” fan comes by the shop to show off his collection of memorabilia to General Lee. Meanwhile, Flanagan encounters his first brony. Sounds like an all-in-all memorable experience.
“Comic Book Men” airs Sundays on AMC at 12 p.m. ET.
