Are you ready to slam evil?Jake + Mitch dip into the well of sweet 90’s nostalgia in re-visiting Billy Zane and his purple jumpsuit. THE PHANTOM was not quite a phenomenon, but in the brief trend of resurrecting art-deco comic strips of yesteryear, it was definitely a contributor.

Nevertheless, the guys ask the tough questions:- Treat Williams: Best comic book movie mustache ever?- Better airplane stunts: Billy Zane or Tom Cruise?- Which is better: Judge Dredd or The Phantom?They also go down a rabbit hole of discussing the merits of Superman and Lex Luthor’s arch-rival status.
