The dynamic duo of Robbie Landis and Ben Morse is back once again for another episode of the Other Identity. The Other Identity is a podcast dedicated to exploring the culture birthed by comic books. This week Robbie and Ben catch up on what they’ve been doing during Quarantine. They also talk about what makes a good villain and start with the villains of Marvel comics and movies.

As the days blend into weeks and into months, Robbie is starting to lose hold on reality. Ben seems to be keeping himself in check with a daily routine of Zoom calls. Robbie updates us on how’s feeling about his read-through of the DC Rebirth Era with his #DCRebirthEraChallenge. Meanwhile, Ben is working his way through tons of different comics. They also decide Robbie should take a break and do a new challenge. Each week he’ll attempt to read through a classic event or crossover comics. You can help decide what he reads each week by reaching out via Twitter at CheckpointXP, Robbie_LandisCP, or BenJMorse with the hashtag #RobbieReads.

This week Robbie and Ben are talking all about villains. There are too many to fit into one episode, so this time they’re focusing solely on the villains of Marvel. What makes a good compelling bad guy? What are some examples of the great villains and does it take something different in the pages than on screen? Plus, they detail who their favorite villains are and why. It doesn’t stop there though as they’re allowing all the listeners to help decide who the greatest Marvel Villain of all time is in a bracket challenge.

You can help vote to determine who’s the biggest, baddest villain in the Marvel universe.
