The Avengers and the Search for a Savior

PodcastGod and Comics

Joss Whedon, the writer and director of the new film "Avengers: Age of Ultron," is an avowed atheist, but sin, salvation, and sacrifice abound in this latest Marvel movie juggernaut. We discuss themes of hopelessness and heroism in the new film, plus Fr. Matt recommends a nudie book, we geek out about the Scarlet Witch, and Fr. Jonathan surprises no one by making yet another reference to a comedian from the 80s. All this along with recommendations, This or That, and a whole lot more!

Here's some of the rad stuff we talk about:


Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Firefly and Serenity


West Coast Avengers

Fr. Robert Barron on the new Avengers film

Sinbad (for those of you too young to remember)
