THAT'S FUNNY, SHE DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT SWIMMING??

Glad to see that DC is committed to clarity and quality control where it concerns diverse new legacy characters.

Also, I kind of love how this panel simultaneously promotes diversity and relies on an enormous racial stereotype.

I think people should just use "You know I don't swim Maria" as a standard response to any statement.

My annoyance at the Croc product placement is distracting me from the real issue. (Sorry if you like them, but I can't stand those things).

I don't know why Crocs and swimming made me think of this, but at some point the podcast should investigate what the ABCP would be like in various alternate universes. There's the pokemon version, the version where it's hosted by the duo of Avi and Erin, the Golden Age version...

Oh well, looking forward to #100 no matter what you guys decide to try!

It took me a little while, but I think the "you know I don't swim" line is supposed to be a joke about the effect that his girlfriend "melting" would have on their love life.

Or not.

Wow, DC is introducing me to racial stereotypes I didn't even know existed :(

And why is she walking a few inches above the ground instead of, you know, on it?
