DC Comics Valentines

Aquaman dc-comics-valentines-c-1978-1980

 

These Valentines Day Cards featuring DC characters are cringeworth, but also quite cool. Also if you want to know why I chose Aquaman as the header image for this post, it’s because I don’t think he gets enough exposure, he’s a dancing master!

Why Everyone’s So Scared of “Fake Geek Girls”

I’m not sure I like the whole fake geek girl thing? Just because you aren’t an obsessive geek doesn’t mean you can’t like the odd fandom, or even wear a Superman or Wonder Woman T-Shirt/Belt/whatever because you like the design.

Why are people threatened by people encroaching on their territory? It doesn’t make any sense. Or at least it didn’t before I read this.

Beware Fake Geek Girls…

DC Comic/Neil Degrasse Tyson Pin the Location of Krypton

If you want full details head over to Bad Astronomy but apparently this weeks issue of Action Comics Superman #14 pins Krypton as Orbiting LHS 2520 a Red Dwarf star that is 27 light years away from us.

They apparently asked Neil Degrasse Tyson to suggest a star that would fit the location of Krypton and he chose that one.

Also I’ve not read Superman in quite some time but what the hell is going on with his costume in that image?

Here is an image of the star that Krypton orbits:

Why Spider-Man Needs the Hyphen

Comic about the fact that Spider-Man is spelled with a hyphen; you can remember it by pretending that the hyphen is his web!

This comic by Metro Kitty explains why Spider-Man needs a hyphen but Superman and Batman don’t. It does raise another issue. Are people actually afraid of bats? Batman is supposed to have chosen the bat because it’s something that strikes fear in the heart of men, I don’t think I know very many people that are afraid of bats, they are so cute:

How could you be afraid of that? Spiders on the other hand…

Scary Spider

I’m not afraid of spiders myself, sure some of them creep me out a little I’d I’d never hug a Black Widow, but they seem to elicit fear an awful lot more than bats do…

Mashed Up Marvel/DC Heroes and Villains

It took some crazy Google-fu to find the source of these images by Deviant Art user ~nomorepalo.

The above image is a mash up of the Avengers and the Justice League:

PRESENTING: The Avenging League of America!

Starring: (left to right)

Speederman (flash/spiderman) – 22 years old Peter Pecker was bitten by a lightning charged super spider giving him the ability to do spider stuffs… quickly….

Iron Bat (Ironman/Batman) – Multimillionaire superhero by day and super gigolo at night (hence the name Iron Bat). Bruise Vain gets all the bad guys and all the ladies.

Asgardian Chick (Thor/Hawkgirl) – a valkyrie who was exiled from Asgard for being too slutty. She can do wonders with her “hammer-shaped mace”.

Captainman (Cap. America/Superman) – a super powered kryptonian who was injected with super soldier serum. Now he has the power of a super-powered kryptonian and a super-powered human.

She-Woman (She-Hulk/Wonder Woman) – an amazon princess who was exposed to gamma radiation giving her hulk-like appearance…

And below some Villainous Mashups, while I think the pairing are spot on for the heros I’m not sure about all the villains:

PRESENTING! The Super Enemies of America!

Starring: (left to right)

The Anonymous (Chameleon/Riddler) – A notorious internet terrorist, The Anonymous spams innocent people’s emails with irritating riddles.

50/50 (Venom/Two-Face) – 50% fag, 50% evil alien symbiote for a total of 100% irritation.

Uberweight (Kingpin/Bane) – A crime lord/luchador… he’s not special… He is very heavy though.

The Grin Goblin (Green Goblin/The Joker) – A mobster who fell in a vat of magic potion which gave him severe acne. To avoid being ridiculed by his peers, he wears an equally ugly mask of a goblin.

Dr. Octopussy (Dr. Octopus/Catwoman) – with 8 limbs and 9 lives, Dr. Octopussy is every man’s dream girl

I disagree with his opinion on Two Face and Venom I actually quite like those two characters…
