Josh has been watching the Marvel shows on Netflix. After spending some time going through the second season of Jessica Jones (reluctantly), he noticed that several of the themes in the show revolve around people being prejudiced toward powered people. This gets Josh's mind running. He asks the guys what they think would happen if actual powered people started to appear in the world. Would they be able to live in peace? How would the government handle it? Would the presence of powered people create super villains and heroes? We talk about all of this and more on this episode of Topicocalypse.
