Hard-Traveling Fanboys Podcast #14: Countdown – Favorite Legacy Characters


Mild-mannered reporters by day, Greg Phillips and Nick Duke share an intense love of comic books that has made them the Hard-Traveling Fanboys.

This time around, Greg and Nick count down their favorite “legacy characters” in comics. These are the heroes who have filled in for prior generations and, in some cases, taken the mantles to higher levels.
