Talk Nerdy to Me Episode 13

Jack and Troy from geek out about Marvel Ultimate Comics Spider-man (Miles Morales), the upcoming Robert Kirkman Outcast series, and the Fox TV Lucifer show. 

Miles Morales

Miles Morales is a fictional superhero who appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics.  He is one of the characters who goes by the identity of Spider-Man. Brian Micahel Bendis, the characters creator drew inspiration from both U.S. President Barack Obama and American actor Donald Glover.  The character possesses powers similar to those of the original Spider-Man.  Miles derives his powers from the bite of a genetically engineered spider. Spider-Man’s nemesis Norman Osborn engineered the spider in an attempt to duplicate those abilities.

Miles Morales first appeared in Ultimate Fallout #4 (August 2011), following the death of Peter Parker. Miles is a teenager of Black Hispanic descent.  He is the second Spider-Man to appear in Ultimate Marvel.  The Ultimate Marvel Universe is an imprint with a separate continuity from the mainstream Marvel Universe. Miles became a character in the main Marvel Universe after Marvel ended the Ultimate imprint in 2015.  

Reaction to the character is varied.  Some approve the creation of a positive role model for non-white children.  The replacement of Peter Parker displeases some.  Still others decry it as a publicity stunt motivated by political correctness.  Alonso denies this charge. 

Outcast by Kirkman

Outcast is a supernatural horror.  Kyle Barnes loved ones have been involved in demonic possession since his childhood. Kyle attempts to unveil what lies behind the supernatural manifestations.  He also tries to determine why he seems to carry special peculiarities.  A reverend aids him on this quest.

Image Comics published the first issue in 2014. Kirkman developed a television adaption before the comic was ever released.  Cinemax bought the rights to produce it as a television series.

Kirkman said it was the first time that he already had a clear ending in mind when he began to write the comic book; he described Outcast as an epic horror story, hoping to give real scares to readers, unlike The Walking Dead style. In the first issue Kirkman also stated that first orders were higher than the last Walking Dead issue.

Lucifer TV series

Lucifer is an American fantasy police procedural comedy-drama television series.  It features a character adapted from the character created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Keith, and Mike Dringenberg as a supporting character in the comic book series The Sandman, which later became the protagonist of the spin-off comic book series Lucifer written by Mike Carey, both published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint. The series focuses on Lucifer Morningstar.  Lucifer is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell.  He resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the beauty of Los Angeles.  He gets his kicks helping the LAPD punish criminals.
