Show Notes Transcript Chapter Markers

Andy, Chris, and Rob, and The Fish join Matt for an exciting round of our signature "Think or Drink" trivia. After we crack open our Oskar Blues Brewery Mutant IPAs, Rob unveils his superhero alter ego. As the game begins, we serve up a strong cocktail of superhero knowledge. We tackle questions about various characters, their superpowers, and the storylines they've been part of.

As the game progresses, we dive deeper into the multiverse of comic book knowledge. The laughter never stops as harder questions come into play about the masterminds behind iconic comic book films, their gripping plotlines, and the unforgettable cinematic moments they gifted us.

Which of the contestants will be heroically victorious? Who’s thinking and who’s drinking?

Matt:

Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one.

Rob:

We have liftoff. Welcome to Matt and Friends Drink the Universe.

Matt:

Alright, everybody, welcome back to Matt and Friends Drink the Universe Today Andy: we're we interrupt this broadcast.

Rob:

Someone our lovely host, we're not saying who Definitely shook all of our beers before we got in here. So instead of starting this off with his normal intro, I have the first trivia question for everyone.

Andy:

Oh, who is responsible for the sticky floor? Is it A Rob B Welser? I'll just stop there. It's Welser.

Matt:

Today we are going to do.

Rob:

Think, think or drink.

Matt:

Are you?

Andy:

thinking or you drinking. Way too much effort went into that.

Rob:

Well, you know that's the MO of Season 2. Let's make a thousand drops and hit them buttons as much as we can.

Matt:

We're just going to see what happens. We're going to see what happens. Alright, today is Think or Drink the Matt, and Friends Drink the Universe Trivia. Today's trivia theme is superheroes.

Rob:

I would just like to say real quick I do not have any peripheral vision in this. Makeshift beer can mask that I've made.

Chris:

Sadly, my request from Season 1 of starting to videotape all of this did not happen. Otherwise listeners, you would be seeing Rob's fantastic superhero beer case mask that he made.

Andy:

But fear not, fair listeners. We took pictures.

Matt:

Oh, it will be on social media. It's Tough Man's Arch enemy douche face.

Rob:

That's douche-fache to you, sir.

Matt:

Okay, as always with Think or Drink, if you answer a question correctly, you do not lose any points and you get to pick somebody else to take a drink and they lose a point. If you answer your question incorrectly, you lose a point and you have to take a sip of your drink For those difficult questions. At any time, you can choose to make it a double. If you choose to make it a double, you select somebody else to help you answer the question. If you answer the question correctly, you can choose individually whether or not you would like to recoup a point or if you would like to make somebody else around the table drink and then pick a sip. If you answer the question incorrectly, you both lose a point and you both have to drink. We do have one fresh aspect of the game to introduce today. This is something that is new and we're calling it Put it On their Tap. Chris is going to explain how it works.

Chris:

So in this game, we are going to give people the option to not have to answer a question and instead elect someone else to answer that question. The twist here is when that person answers the question. If they answer it correctly, they then get to give a drink to the person who punted it, but if they get it wrong, they are going to earn a point for that person who punted the question to them. So it's a little bit of a risk. Do you want to punt the question? Because if you definitely don't know it, you're punting the question. But it's a risk. Who do you choose to answer this question? Because if they get it right you're drinking, but if they get it wrong you get the point.

Matt:

I like it, let's hope we all remember once we're sipping. Now that we're like five minutes in, let's go ahead and introduce who's at the table.

The Fish:

Wait a minute once we're sipping. I'm already half through here, man.

Chris:

Alright, that's okay.

Rob:

Why don't you start with that guy?

Matt:

Yeah, we're going to start with the guy that's joining us again from Connecticut. That guy, what's your name?

The Fish:

He just called me the fish we just call him the fish.

Matt:

Once again Swimming through the Universe. Also with me today here at the table. I'm Andy.

Rob:

Matt:

Now. Traditionally, we go around the table, starting with Rob. Should we go the other way this time? Why don't we start?

Rob:

The Fish:

Rob:

Rob:

That's wrong. That can announce that Tony Jones or Robert Redford In Captain America it was Hugo Weaving, but in Infinity War and also Was he in I know it was a different game. Or was he only in Infinity War?

Chris:

I think it was only in Infinity War. But in Infinity War was a different actor, really Okay.

Chris:

Matt:

Fish which supervillain is the leader of the Sinister Six? Is it Craven, the Hunter, dr Octopus Sandman or the Green Goblin?

The Fish:

That would be Dr Octopus.

Matt:

That is correct.

Chris:

Okay, I wasn't confident about that, so it shifted at some points.

Andy:

I thought, it was Green Goblin I don't know if Green Goblin never let it.

Matt:

Just like I did with the last review we did. I had chat, gpt prompted questions and I verified and Dr Octopus did come back as an answer on Google when I chose like three different ways. So I believe it.

The Fish:

Yes, okay, so we're going with Andy, all right, cheers.

Matt:

Andy. Yeah, here are the names of Superman's adopted parents Martha and Henry Kent. Martha. Martha and Steve Kent. Martha and Jonathan Kent why did you say that name? Or Martha and Thomas Kent.

The Fish:

Well, you got Martha yeah.

Andy:

Martha's the easy one.

Matt:

That's why she appears four times in this question, I think it's.

Andy:

Do you want to double up?

Rob:

here, buddy, I think it's.

Andy:

Jonathan, I'm going to double.

Rob:

Yeah, you want to double.

Andy:

I'm making a double with my man across the table here, Rob.

Rob:

It is Martha and Jonathan.

Andy:

Kent, that is correct. That's what I was thinking From Smallville, Kansas. Ladies and gentlemen, Yep, all right, and we're taking them points back. Give me a point back.

Rob:

We're taking them points back. Andy, you and I were at two, and now we're climbing back out that ladder. Here we go.

Andy:

All right, I did enjoy Smallville.

Rob:

Thank you.

Andy:

I might have like this first two seasons on DVD. It's a good show.

The Fish:

Yeah, no, that was a good show.

Chris:

For those of you children just listening, a DVD preceded a blue ray and was of shittier quality which preceded Netflix, because I don't even think kids know what blue rays are.

Andy:

Oh, I preceded the Netflix streaming.

Matt:

My daughter is flat out, at seven years old, enraged by regular commercials on the TV, like it's the cutest little kid rage ever.

Andy:

That's fair.

Matt:

We were on vacation recently and she was in the hotel and one came on and she was like how do I get my show back? What's wrong with the television? How do I like?

Andy:

How do I get to the next episode? I recently tried to skip the commercials while watching a Philly's game and then felt really dumb.

Rob:

Well it happens, Happens to the best of us.

Matt:

Chris, how many Marvel movies has John Favreau produced, directed or acted in?

Andy:

Well, there you have it, boys. We got to the hard ones, okay.

Rob:

That's a challenge. I mean it's a lot. That's a challenge Three five, eight or 10.

Matt:

I'm going to go eight, a conservative eight. You're going to go eight. You do have other options on the table. You can put it on somebody else's tab if you'd like you can make it a double.

Chris:

Oh, I'm going to put it on Andy's tab. Oh, you're putting it on.

Matt:

Andy's tab. All right, all right, you got three, you got five, you got eight or 10. And that's movies that John Favreau Johnny Favreau's produced, directed or acted in.

Andy:

It can't be three. He's acted in more than three.

The Fish:

Yeah.

Andy:

I don't want to help. I'm with you on the eight. I'm going with eight. It's actually 10.

Rob:

It is 10. So, John Favreau, you got the three.

Matt:

Iron Man's Yep. So he is the director and producer and director of Iron man and Iron man 2. He's the co-executive producer of the Avengers and Iron man 3. And then he's in all three Spider-Man, all three, yeah. And then he's in Infinity War and Endgame Correct and he was also in Daredevil, the 2003 version of Daredevil.

Rob:

Oh, the Ben Affleck. Yes, he was Foggy Nelson in the original Daredevil. Correct no.

Matt:

He was Foggy Nelson in the original. I've never seen that, so.

Chris:

I don't feel bad about knowing that.

The Fish:

Oh, don't worry about that. That was a terrible movie yeah.

Rob:

Terrible movie. That was terrible that bad, so Andy got it wrong.

Chris:

Compared to the TV show? Yes, oh, compared to the TV show, he loses the point.

Rob:

So he loses the point. All right, a good punt or no? Do you regain a point?

Chris:

I thought yes, I regain a point, so he doesn't lose anything.

Rob:

You just regain a point, correct.

Chris:

Correct.

The Fish:

I finished my class, moving on to Number two, dude.

Chris:

What's the next one?

The Fish:

Wait, wait, wait. We need to figure out what the next one is Ransacking the universe.

Rob:

Yes, let's ransack the universe. Now ask me a question, here we go.

Matt:

Asking you a question yes, marvel Comics. What is the real name of the character known as the Moon Knight? John Paul Duchamp, jack Monroe, mark Spector or Eric Brooks?

Rob:

So this is a multi-level question. The answer is Mark Spector. However, he has more than one personality. He also goes by three or four other names, but Mark Spector is the answer you're looking for Mark Spector.

Matt:

yes, is the correct answer.

Rob:

Thank you.

Andy:

Underrated show. Chris, I'm going to make you drink, of course.

Rob:

Okay, so at the end of this round he only has three different names. Yes, in the TV show, but in the comics he has like seven or eight personalities, yes, so comics, it's much more. At the end of this round. Chris in the lead with four points. The rest of us are all at three.

Chris:

Would have never guessed it in my wildest dreams.

Rob:

Well, you know, people are just coming after me and not coming after you. Here we go.

Matt:

You ready fish?

The Fish:

Yeah, yeah, go ahead. I got full beer now.

Matt:

Which Marvel superhero made his first appearance in the comic book Tales of Suspense number 39 in 1963. Spider-man, iron man, captain America or Thor. Tales of Suspense 39, 1963. Options being Spider-Man, iron man, captain America or Thor.

Chris:

You can punt to your question. Make it on some level or make it a double. Or make it a double. Bring someone down with you.

The Fish:

Yeah, well, how many points do I have there, rob?

Rob:

You have three, three points Three.

The Fish:

Alright. Well, it was Iron man, thor, spider-man, iron man.

Rob:

What were the four choices? Again, spider-man, iron man, captain America or Thor yes, captain America.

Matt:

For excessive thinking. I'm drinking, but at the same time.

The Fish:

I'm making a double with Chris there.

Chris:

Poor choice. I'm not the one that we're going down together. My guess would be Thor, your guess would be Thor, but I mean fish. Do you want to go with Thor? Yes, sure, alright we're going with Thor. It's Iron man.

Andy:

Oh, wow.

Rob:

I would have thought Thor. I would have thought Thor because I thought that Thor was the only character on that whole list that was introduced outside of his own comic run.

Matt:

So Iron Man's Marvel Comics premiere in Tales of Suspense, number 39, cover dated 63, was a collaboration among editor and story plotter Stanley, scripted Larry Lieber and artist Dan Heck. And the cover artist character designer by Jack Kirby in 1963 Lee. Heck had been toying with the idea of a businessman superhero.

Chris:

Alright, fishy and I are drinking.

Rob:

That's right, alright. Cheers On to a question for Mr Andy what you got.

Matt:

Alright, andy, which superhero is? The master assassin known as the Merc with the mouth, cable, punisher, taskmaster or Deadpool?

Andy:

That would be Deadpool yeah it is Deadpool, they vary.

Chris:

We went from insanely difficult.

Andy:

Yeah, just a nice off pitch.

Chris:

Yes it's fine.

Andy:

Let's give that one to Fish.

Chris:

Fish on the brink now.

Rob:

Down to one and Fish does not have a make. It make it a double to recoup any points.

Chris:

No, just the no. I do not the punt which can get him a point back.

Matt:

Yes, In the movie Chris Avengers Infinity War, which two characters are the first two to encounter Thanos, iron man and Spider-Man, thor and Loki, doctor Strange and Wong, or Hulk and Black Widow, thor and Loki. That is correct.

Chris:

Is that accurate in the comics as well? I don't know, it's very different from the comics.

Rob:

Even the motivation of Thanos is not even close to that. There's no lady death.

Andy:

As much as I like to rail on, civil War is so much better with the comics. The Thanos saga is so much better in the movies.

Chris:

In the movies it makes him so much cooler. I love the motivation. Obviously terrible, but yeah, what are the scores? Alright, we'll give it to Andy. Okay, we were all at three, except for Fish.

Matt:

Okay bud. Rob? What planet does the soul stone reside on in the MCU Vormir Thank? You I hate you so much.

Rob:

Yes, it is Chris. You can have a drink, damn it.

Chris:

I would have at least had to hear the answers on that one, I would not have, and in a million years I would not have gotten that one Dude even with options.

Matt:

I know you're nuts. I'm here to flex it's okay. You're doing really nicely. Douche Fosse for the win.

The Fish:

Are you still wearing the mask? No, no, that came off early.

Rob:

Okay, at the end of this round I have crawled into the lead with three points Chris and Andy at two and Fish with one. Here we go Right, it's the money round, fish.

Matt:

Fish? Which character portrayed by Jeff Globlum rules the planet Sikar and Thor Ragnarok? Is it the Grand Master, the Collector, Korg or Hella?

The Fish:

Well, it's not the Collector, it's not Hella.

Matt:

So, grand Master, it is the Grand Master.

Chris:

Yes.

Matt:

Such a good character.

Chris:

Bring me the stick. All right, fish, who you make a drink?

The Fish:

All right, so Rob's in the lead.

Chris:

Yes, he is.

The Fish:

Not any longer.

Andy:

Okay, hold him down. Fine, get down to our level.

Matt:

Andy, who directed Black Panther? Was it? And I always butcher the guys. No, tyka Watiti. James Gunn, you said that correct. John Favreau, I wrote down a key. And or Ryan Coogler.

Andy:

That would be Tyka.

Matt:

No, it's not Ryan Coogler.

Andy:

No, it's Tyka the second one.

Rob:

No, Tyka directs the Thor movies, not Black Panther.

The Fish:

Yeah, he did Ragnarok, I believe.

Rob:

Yep and Love and Thunder. He did two Thor movies.

Chris:

That's another one that I'm glad I didn't get.

Andy:

He did one.

Rob:

And he's the voice of Coog, love and Thunder. I didn't think it was that bad. I thought that they cut out way too much of the Christian Bale parts, which were very good. Christian Bale was great. He was fantastic.

Andy:

But there's one scene in it where they obviously lost their budget. Do you know the scene I'm talking about? It looks like it's just shower curtains hung up in a warehouse. Like the rest of the movie, like absolutely gorgeous. And then you go in this one scene you're like what's with the shower curtains? Why did they stop?

Rob:

at Walnut Weird. It's a little weird. It's okay, though, moving right along, Chris.

Matt:

which Infinity Stone does Doctor Strange possess in the eye of Agamotto? The space stone, the time stone, the mind stone or the reality stone, the?

Chris:

no.

The Fish:

I'm not giving you a point.

Chris:

It's the time, stone it is the time stone. All right, all right, just for that you can drink.

Andy:

Come on man, Come on Brett, you did raise your hand.

Rob:

I was letting you know I was here for you.

Matt:

Condescending. You don't know this. Call on me, Hanraes. It's fine, I was just trying to be helpful, Rob. What is the name of the intergalactic pirate group led by Yondu Untonda in the Guardians of?

Chris:

Rob:

Rob:

The game is afoot. You're all at one, I will say we're all at one. Chris and I both still have a. Make it a double. Yes, just throwing that out there. Wow, which we could have done on the last one.

Chris:

Fish also has his punt.

The Fish:

Do that. I'm gonna put it on someone else's tab.

Chris:

The Fish:

I would go with Chris All right, I'm gonna guess Ant-Man.

Chris:

Is it Doctor Strange?

The Fish:

Is Doctor Strange. It's Doctor Strange.

Rob:

Shoot Is Doctor Strange yeah.

Chris:

Really.

Rob:

And that earns him a point.

Matt:

No, it earns him a point.

Assemble on your right, on your left, or we got your back. Oh my god. I know what are my favorite scenes in that movie Just magical. I'm gonna put it on Rob's tab, you're gonna put it on Rob's tab On your left it is.

Andy:

That's what I thought, but I wasn't confident about it.

Matt:

I wasn't confident it is a call back to when Captain America laps him like 19 times.

Rob:

Yeah, so on, your left me answering it means I lose the point Now he's okay, andy's out. No he's not. I don't gain anything, you do not All right.

Rob:

Yeah, ask me the question. I'm just gonna grab another mutant. You're gonna grab another mutant there you go.

Rob:

It's Baron Zemo. He's behind the whole plot because he's controlling Bucky Barnes. So if you tell me Bucky Barnes is the answer, the answer is Baron Zemo.

Matt:

It is. His proper name is Helmut Zemo, but yes, I'll take both of them.

Rob:
