The one and only Travis McElroy — who hosts the highly popular My Brother, My Brother and Me and The Adventure Zone podcasts — was on hand to (what else?) host a panel for C2E2, where he was joined for an evening of pure, unadulterated fun by wife Theresa McElroy (Shmanners podcast), Symphony Sanders (Welcome to Night Vale), Anne Wheaton (wife of Wil Wheaton) and more.
McElroy kicked off the panel titled "An Evening with Travis McElroy and Friends" with some deep philosophical questions about superheroes (of course) including one about the Mighty God of Thunder and his hammer. If Thor sat Mjolnir down in an airplane, would it crash? Could he also stop the Earth from spinning? Well, McElroy really thought this through and came up with a worthy answer.
During the panel, McElroy asked the most important question of them all: If you could be a superhero, would you? (Because let's face it, if the Spider-Man comics thought us anything, it's that with great power comes great responsibility.) What superpowers would you want to have? And what superpowers do you think you would actually be getting based on your personality? More superhero questions asked by Twitter users followed, and the panel kicked into high gear with McElroy and co. providing some hilarious answers and anecdotes along the way.
The host was then joined by the cast of Hello from the Magic Tavern: Arnie Niekamp, Matt Young and Adal Rifai for additional queries of the superhero kind and more, such as what would they do about meeting their future time-traveling selves and whether they would rather fight a shark with bear arms, or a bear with shark arms (the arms being sharks and not fins).
The nerdy fun just keeps on going full speed ahead for a panel that's almost 80 minutes long, so sit comfortably in your very own flight simulator chair (a sofa will also do just fine) and enjoy.
