Episode #74 – Definitive Five: Part II (More of Our Favorite Character Versions)

The Definitive Five returns!  There are occasions where you might find a single character appear in films, tv, comics, animation, and video games, and you might also find that there are often significant differences between the different versions.  Sometimes the changes are welcome and well-regarded while other times not as much. Frank has assembled another list of characters that have appeared across multiple forms of media, and the panel will decide which of the five formats is home to the definitive take of that character.
