Every Episode 4 Easter Egg
This week Peacemaker, John Cena refers to “Matter-Eater Lad”. It sounds like some kind of deranged James Gunn joke about silly superhero names, but there really is a Matter-Eater Lad in DC Comics. He’s a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes, and his power is (wait for it) that he can eat anything.
This is just one of the funniest references to Easter eggs, secrets and DC in the latest episode of Peacemaker. In our last Peacemaker video, we break them all down, including the meaning of Peacemaker’s father’s upside-down flag, the reference to Superman and one of his powers, and the White Dragon comic book costume we see in the lab of the Peacemaker’s father, and what that lab (and its quantum-deployable storage area that leads to a dimensional nodule) has to do with DC Comics – and how that might explain that Matter-Eater Lad reference from the same episode. Watch it below:
