After our big commercial push (seriously, buy your tickets), we talk about a genre of comics unusual from the rest: Stories where the bad guys win. Some titles mentioned include: Doom 2099 by John Francis Moore and later by Warren Ellis, Empire by Mark Waid and Barry Kitson, and Wanted by Mark Millar, and All Hail Megatron from IDW.
Next we discussed shared vs independent universes, and the hypothetical question of whether or not stories can benefit from being in its own unique universe.
