Anthony & Doc tackle a world without Y chromosomes when they examine Yorick Brown from Y: The Last Man! Yorick's got so many problems we actually examine FOUR! And how is Doc like the 1990s Chicago Bulls? Listen now to find out!
Yorick Brown created by Brian K. Vaughan in Y: The Last Man #1 (September 2002)
Yorick Brown, an amateur escape artist, and his pet capuchin monkey Ampersand are the only male survivors after an unknown cause kills every male mammal with a Y chromosome simultaneously – society thrown into chaos as women try to cope with the loss
Yorick’s mother, Representative Jennifer Brown, tasks Agent 355 with bringing Yorick to Doctor Allison Mann, a geneticist working on cloning, in an attempt to figure out why and how Yorick survived
All Yorick wants to do is find his girlfriend Beth, who he proposed to minutes before everyone died – she was in Australia
Dr. Mann was giving birth to a clone the instant the plague happened, and blames herself
Yorick, 355, and Dr. Mann all head to California, as Dr. Mann’s research lab burned down by the Daughters of the Amazon, a tribe of misandrist women who feel the plague was Earth’s way of punishing the patriarchy that had destroyed society – the Amazons know Yorick is alive, and will stop at nothing to kill him and Ampersand
After many years, Yorick reunites with Beth, who tells him that she was going to dump him right before he proposed, but the plague prevented her from telling him how she felt
Yorick realizes he’s in love with 355, but she’s killed by Alter, an Israeli commando on the hunt for Yorick
Yorick ends up marrying Beth II, a flight attendant, who gives birth to a daughter, Beth Jr. - Beth Jr. later becomes President of France
Dr. Mann eventually learns how to clone humans, including Yorick, who grows old and is institutionalized after a joke is interpreted as a suicide attempt
Impulsiveness – related to survivor’s guilt, nearly gets him killed several times early on (16:15)
Responsibility put upon Yorick (22:37)
Overconfidence in intelligence (28:15)
Out of universe (41:15)
