38:00 Download May 25th, 2020

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 contend with some technical issues before diving into the results of the Marvel Villains bracket. Plus, they’re joined by a very special guest. They discuss the work and origins of Marvel writer, Kelly Thompson.

Ben and Robbie welcome Kelly Thompson to the Other Identity. Kelly got her start in comics writing licensed properties like Jem and the Holograms and Power Rangers. She eventually debuted at Marvel during Secret Wars in 2015 with Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps. She wrote the Eisner-nominated Hawkeye series starring Kate Bishop before signing exclusively with Marvel in 2018. Since then she has worked on Mr. & Mrs. X, Jessica Jones, Uncanny X-Men, West Coast Avengers, and more. She’s currently writing Captain Marvel and Deadpool, as well as the recently launched Black Widow.

Kelly talks her through her own origin story, including her first comic book and when she fell in love with superheroes. She explains to Robbie and Ben that she never considered writing comic books a dream job until it had already happened. Plus, she recalls how she first came to work with Marvel and what led to her signing with them as an exclusive writer. Ben and Robbie also put her through a lightning round of questions to better get to know her geek-side. Is she an X-Men or an Avengers fan? Which Green Lantern does she think is the best…and the worst? If she could spend the day with one hero who would it be? And what does she think would happen if Sabrina the Teenage Witch met Deadpool. All that and more on this week’s episode of The Other Identity.

 

Plus, the bracket to decide the best villain in the Marvel universe is almost over! The final fight between Magneto and Ultron has begun! Don’t forget to vote below and share your results on twitter with CheckpointXP, Robbie, and Ben!
