This week, our heroes find themselves discussing the hometown of the first superhero! The versus could have been a good match this week between Drizzt Do'Urden and the original Human Torch until we rolled the old 20-sider to find out the fight is on Stumbos IV, a planet with 10 times the gravity of Earth. Dustins Dungeon of Deepness takes us to Blade Runner, which none of us have seen (sorry!) and we wrap it up with a fanboy gushing all over the show Smallville. Enjoy!
