Valentine’s Day may be over, but the love-in continues! Join Chris and Cindy as they tackle the loves and losses of comicdom’s most famous red and blue heroes! Yes, it’s DC and Marvel’s flagship characters, Superman and Spider-Man!

Follow Spidey and his bride-to-be-and-yet-never-was Mary Jane from that first famous door knock, to the deal with the devil that undid it all.

Then stop by Metropolis to visit comics’ first couple, Lois and Clark, who finally made good on 50 years of “will-they-won’t-they” to ultimately land on “they never did”.

The winding road of romance proves their greatest enemies for happiness not to be Lex Luthor or the Green Goblin, but executives at the very companies they keep afloat!

Super Mates Episode 1 -Comic Couples Part 1

It’s our debut episode, and it’s Valentine’s Day! Join Chris and Cindy Franklin as they reveal the Secret Origin of their relationship, and how it involves comics. Then we get to the topic at hand, and examine some of comicdom’s greatest couples and learn lessons in love and marriage, including;

• Self-mutilation to save your child.
• When is it okay to wear dominatrix gear and torture your spouse and teammates?
• Fostering a strong marriage with an inescapable reincarnation curse hanging over your heads.

Chris and Cindy pick apart the so-called wedded bliss of Aquaman and Mera, the Fantastic Four’s Mister Fantastic and the Invisible Woman, and Hawkman and Hawkgirl. It’s a journey through comic history, including retcons, reboots, reimaginings, and Hollywood as the Franklins prove love can survive even the most convoluted stories writers can throw at it.
