Omnitron and Omnitron and Omnitron and Omnitron! And more!
This is both a villain and a hero episode! And even more!
Run Time: 68:35
At the very beginning, we mention that our business partner Paul makes a video series with his brother where they talk about rockets and stuff. It's called Specific Impulse, and they have a bunch of great videos on YouTube! Check them out!
At the top of these show notes you can see the initial iteration of Omnitron in its "Rampaging Robot" form, rather than its Factory form. We'll show a few different versions of Omnitron in these show notes as they come up in the episode.
As promised in the episode, here is the chart that helps explain the Omnitron(s) timelines:
For details on how this chart works and what each color refers to, listen to the episode!
Warning: With the upcoming images in this point, we recommend you don't scroll through them all now, but wait and scroll down to each of them as we reveal their existence in the episode, just to have the correct forms of Omnitron in mind as we tell the various stories.
Now, a parade of Omnitrons!
Omnitron II, AKA Cosmic Omnitron:
Omnitron III, AKA Omni-Blade:
Baron Blade, what were you thinking?
Omnitron IV, which is not a robot entity so much as a barely intelligent robotics factory:
The last non-hero incarnation of Omnitron in the Sentinels of the Multiverse Timeline!
To jump ahead, Omnitron-X:
And the event that brought Omnitron-U to life!
Then, moving on to the Sentinel Tactics Timeline: Omnitron V!
And its robotic soulmate, offspring, and counterpart, the Omni-Reaper!
The combination of both together create the dual-bodied entity known as Omnitron VI!
And in the upcoming Sentinel Comics RPG? What is the fate of Omnitron there? Only time will tell...
At 63:35ish, Christopher says, "In the Sentinel Tactics timeline, we have the hero: Omnitron." As you can probably tell from context, he meant the Sentinel Comics RPG timeline. He just got caught up in the moment! Whoops!
Thanks for listening!
Join us next week for an episode about Mister Fixer, and the week after that for The Chairman! Get your questions in now!
Another member of the Freedom Five! It's Bunker!
An important note before getting into the actual show notes for the episode. This episode was recorded at the beginning of the year, as we knew that this week, we would be unable to record an episode due to various conventions. As a result, the Q&A portion of the episode is MUCH shorter, as we had far fewer Bunker questions. Not to worry! On May 23rd, we'll be posting Episode 19 - Freedom Five Recap. That episode has been planned since just after we posted the episode about The Wraith, as we've gotten a bunch of follow up questions on both Legacy and The Wraith. That episode will just be a huge Q&A section covering all of your Freedom Five issues, including Bunker questions! So, apologies for the shortness of this episode, but we'll make it up to you in May! Get your questions in using our handy question form!
Now, back to the standard show notes and such!
Run Time: 45:23
Even though this episode is short, we're still proud of it because we get to talk a bit about how things work behind the scenes in Sentinel Comics, so that's cool.
Time for some tricks - we're gonna talk about Kismet!
Run Time: 75:06
In the intro, Christopher mentions the shirt he's wearing. Because he's a fun guy.
We talk about The Block - an extradimensional prison detached from time and space - a few times in this episode. It's pictured behind Kismet there in the cover image for this episode.
As mentioned, Kismet exists because of a winning entry to our 2012 Create A Villain Contest! Well done, Alex.
Let's talk Setback!
Run Time: 84:16
We were really tempted to post this show a day late, just because of who this episode is about... but we didn't want to let our listeners down!
If you haven't listened to the Expatriette episode yet, we suggest you do so before the Q&A portion of this episode - lots of connected stuff.
We mention that the building he went to for medical testing was a RevoCorp building. More on RevoCorp in the Baron Blade episode!
Not a lot of notes today! This episode is pretty self contained.
See you next week for Setback's old flame and nemesis, Kismet!
Time for another villain episode! Today, we talk all about the leader of the Citizens of the Sun!
Run Time: 86:41
As a note, today's episode is about a pretty terrible person. She's a villain, and not really a sympathetic one. Just so you know.
Because of the impressive number of questions you all asked about Citizen Dawn, today's episode features a slightly shorter character overview segment, followed by a much longer Q&A section. Great work everyone - keep those questions coming!
The character we're talking about this week is the mother of the character we talked about last week, so there's a lot of information you'll want in this episode. If you missed last week's episode, go check it out! Then come back. No rush - we'll wait.
Here's the photographic evidence of Adam's inverted Citizens of the Sun mug:
We mention that Citizens Hammer and Anvil are the best. They are. True fact.
Next week, we talk about Setback! We're recording that episode on Thursday, February 16th - a day earlier than usual - so get your questions in by Thursday morning!
It's time for everyone's favorite gun-totin' purple-haired markswoman!
Run Time: 83:05
Hoo boy! We're having trouble sticking to this "one-hour-show" thing, aren't we? We just have so much to say!
In attempt to appeal to younger generations, Christopher uses the phrase "on fleek". No, he doesn't know how to use it or what it means. But does anyone?
We talk about Expatriette's first unfinished mission, in which she fought and failed to kill a mechanic in Slim's Auto Shop. I wonder who he could be...
After Christopher and Adam briefly discuss six-sided dice vs. twenty-sided dice as "standard" dice, Christopher mentions he'll make a survey and put it in the show notes. Here it is! We'll probably stop taking responses at some point... maybe not, though!
Both Christopher and Adam bust out their fake French accents during the Q&A portion of this episode. We're sorry. We're so sorry.
See you next week for an episode about Expatriette's mom!
Hey, folks! This Interlude is called the Trevorlude for reasons! Come and get it!
Run time: 11:48
Right off the bat, we talk about a game of Sentinels of the Multiverse that we played. Christopher says that none of the heroes had hands. This doesn't mean that they had their hands chopped off - the players controlling those heroes had no cards in their hands. Just to be clear.
Now, on to the important stuff - upcoming episodes!
February 7th: Expatriette
February 14th: Citizen Dawn
February 21st: Setback
February 28th: Kismet
Got questions on those characters? Ask them now!
Our first villain episode had to be about Baron Blade, right?
Run Time: 69:27
Oh, man. Some big reveals in this episode. Let's get to it!
Just before the seven-minute mark, Christopher mentions that we've said before that we're not going to turn this into a Star Wars podcast. Trevor has to edit at least a few minutes of Star Wars discussion out of almost every episode. We like Star Wars.
While discussing the "Trial of Baron Blade" story, we talk about the super-powered law blog, Law and the Multiverse. We recommend you check it out.
On Thursday, we'll post an Interlude episode about what episodes you can look forward to in February. Got questions for us? We welcome them! Ask them using our handy form!
We're talking about The Wraith!
Run Time: 78:01
In the first three minutes, Christopher says that there's another 45 minutes of episode to go. He vastly underestimated how much he and Adam are able to talk about The Wraith. By about half an hour.
Because she lives, works, and fights there, we talk a lot about Rook City. Check out the Sentinels Wiki for more information on that terrible place.
Adam perfectly NAILS the name "Madame Mittermeier’s Fantastical Festival of Conundrums and Curiosities" right off the top of his head. Props.
Also, we linked to the Sentinels Wiki a bunch in these show notes. That's because the fine folks over there do such a great job. Keep up the good work, Wiki-mancers!

Welcome to our first Interlude episode!
Run Time: 21:46
Interlude episodes will be shorter episodes that we release on occasional Thursdays. We'll use these to answer general questions, additional questions about characters that we've covered in previous episodes, and other supplemental information.
Today, we're covering a bit of overarching info about the world of Sentinel Comics - how it works, what our vision for it involves, etc. Also, we discuss what you might find in The Letters Page podcast, going forward.
Only one Show Note for this episode: at the 19 minute mark, we mention that there have been a few episodes of The Letters Page at this point. Obviously, that's not true. We had recorded this Interlude with plans to release it after we had a few episodes in the bag, but upon listening to it, we realized it would be a great "Welcome to The Letters Page" episode, so here we are!
No other Show Notes on this episode - everything else is pretty well contained in this Interlude! So, listen in as we talk about the Multiverse, Sentinel Comics, and what to look forward to in upcoming episodes of The Letters Page!
