Ranking Super Powers is our Endgame.
Today we are celebrating 11 years of the MCU and superhero pop culture by giving our take on an aged old question: “What are the best super powers?”. Face it, even the most jaded comic book sneerer wishes they can get up and fly out of bed, transform into a fire breathing lizard, or shoot lasers out of their eyes! This week join Tuong La and New Mutants Justin Godelie, Dan Foerster, and Angus MacDonald as they put on the Infinity Gauntlet and materialize their take on the Top 5 best super powers!
Wait a sec.. Green book? That can’t be right..

The Academy has had one of it’s most controversial years yet. Just when you think they finally “get it” they manage to take one step forward and two steps back. From everything surrounding the hosting, to subtracting and re-adding categories to the main program, to the Best Movie they chose, it’s clear that this whole awards show is kind of a hot mess. However, it’s not all cloudy skies! While this year may not have had the strongest line up of movies, it still gave us some real humdingers which we are here today to share with you! Join Tuong La and True Oscar Winners Desiree Connors Warmington, Taylor Fleming, and Leslie Cserepy as they celebrate PodCavern & Ranked’s second birthday, and rank the Top 5 Movies of 2018!

The day of Infinity War as finally arrived!
10 years ago Marvel started a revolution for comic book nerds around the world with the very first Iron Man.

Through 18 movies, they have been slowly building the foundation of the biggest comic book event since…well ever. To celebrate this momentous occasion, join Tuong La as he gathers the Infinity Stones with the help of Stenley Philippe, Stephen Peeling, and Glen Barlas as they look back and rank the very best Marvel Movies leading up to Avengers: Infinity War.
