Fully Clothed Super Heroines

The comic book industry has a long history of sexualizing women, so much so that someone started a project called the “Hawkeye Initiative” which replaces female characters in comic art with Hawkeye from the avengers to show how ridiculous the poses look and of course there are many reasons why showing cleavage is bad for crime fighting.

So it’s refreshing to see these new takes on classic super heroine costumes, by Michael Lee Lunsford, that preserve their modesty while still allowing them to kick ass.

The Avengers Has Turned the Internet Shawarma Crazy

Words cannot describe my love for shawarma, if you aren’t familiar with shawarma it’s chicken or lamb or more recently beef cooked on a huge rotating skewer rolled up in flat bread with some vegetables sauce (Garlic sauce or tahina depending on the meat) and occasionally french fries (Although I think the french fries are not part of the traditional recipe) and it is what I grew up eating. It’s a staple food in the middle east, it costs about 50p (I reackon 75 cents?) and it absolutely delicious.

I’ve had shawarma in London, Glasgow and even Tokyo I think if you told me I could only eat one food for the rest of my life I’d pick shawarma. But enough about that. I’ve noticed the internet has picked up on shawarma because of a passing reference to it in the Avengers.

This can only be a good thing as it will hopefully lead to shawarma being more mainstream, which means that I will have access to it wherever I go!

Graphic Spoiler Alert Does TDKR

Do not read this if you have not seen the Dark Knight Rises.

It’s really funny, but it is essentially the whole plot of the film, it also has a minor spoiler for The Avengers, but nothing major.

AVENGERS Fantasy Re-design

What if you took the avengers and sent them back into a fantasy universe? Maybe they would look something like DeviantArt user DenisM79‘s sketches?

It’s worth looking through his gallery as he has also done Rockabilly redesigns of Cat Woman and Bat Man.

And if that’s not cool enough for you how about these slightly more stylized fantasy Avengers by Another Deviant Art User theDURRRRIAN

The Avengers: Assembled for Art Nouveau!

Woo more Art Nouveau by *ninjaink, this one entitled Avengers Nouveau. Well it’s for 4 of the Avengers in it so that’s understandable, Notably the four who have had their own movies, made recently, nobody ever has any time for Ant Man 🙁
