Episode 10. THE PHANTOM (1996)

It's the third and final installment in the "Retro Heroes" series, which means Dru and David tackle Big Purple himself, Lee Falk's 1936-debuting (and arguably precedent-setting) superhero The Phantom. We braved the jungles of Bengalla to read some Phantom comics and watch Simon Wincer's wince-inducing 1996 film adaptation.
