    Presidents Day 2017

    February 20, 2017 by ARTaylor

    In the United States of America, today is Presidents Day, celebrating the forty-four individual Presidents of the country. The day is celebrated as a federal holiday on this day as the birthday of the first president, George Washington. The Incredible Hulk recreated Mount Rushmore which features the likeness of presidents Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt. Real-life president Bill Clinton was on Fantastic Four and Iron Man played by Jim Cummings. X-Men had an unnamed woman as president, apparently based on Clinton's wife Hillary who herself ran for president twice. The Avengers: United They Stand featured an unnamed man as president, though not seemingly based on any real life person.

    In honor of the day, Marvel En…

    Today marks the seventy-fifth anniversary of the infamous Executive Order 9066 allowing for the internment of Japanese Americans by the United States government. This order was signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in response to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and resulted in the internment of between 110,000 and 120,000 individuals either from Japan or of Japanese descent. George Takei, then only five years old, was one such person who was interned. The internment lasted throughout World War II until March 20, 1946.

    In 1980, President Jimmy Carter opened an investigation as to whether the internment was justified, who found little evidence that the Japanese people interned were disloyal to the American government. In 1988, Preside…

    Consider this just a rumor for the moment, but Bleeding Cool has word that a new series could be coming based on the X-Men. Their source is reportedly close to the Marvel creative summit that happened last week. Supposedly there is going to be a lot more coming involving the Children of the Atom this year.

    It has been a well-known secret that things are tense between Fox and Marvel/Disney for a while. Fox owns the film rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four and Marvel wants them back. In response, Marvel Comics has ended Fantastic Four, their longest running comic series, and massively downplayed mutants in all media and merchandise.

    In addition to this, there seems to be a division within Marvel between Marvel Studios and the rest of the Marvel co…

    January 2017 Poll Results

    February 1, 2017 by ARTaylor

    It's that time when we look back at the previous month to examine the results of the poll. Last month we asked if you could have one superpower what would you have?


    1. The winner with 58.3% was healing and longevity. While many superheroes are quick healers, how else can they bounce back quickly after getting beat up all the time, the most famous of them is Wolverine. He can come back from virtually any attack, recover from any event, and has been alive long enough to be born in the Nineteenth Century. It's possible that with so much real world talk of Americans losing their health care this seemed an appealing option.
    2. Getting 25% was flight. Superheroes fly through a variety of means, usually with technological means like jets or flight suits …

    50 Years of Batgirl

    January 29, 2017 by ARTaylor

    This month marks the fiftieth anniversary of the debut of DC Comics' Barbara Gordon, better known as Batgirl, who appeared in the comic Detective Comics #359. Though not the first character to take the name she is undoubtedly the most famous. The first Bat-Girl had at the time faded into obscurity and the following Batgirls, while popular in their own right, were never able to attain the reception or legacy that Barbara has.

    The character was created to give a female presence to the Batman live action series featuring Adam West with the character appearing in the comics around the same time. Rather than the previous Bat-Girl and Batwoman, she was created not as a romantic interest for Batman and/or Robin but as a capable female crimefighter. T…

    The rumors that have been flying for months have been proven true. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Sony Pictures Entertainment's Spider-Man film will feature Miles Morales as the titular hero, as confirmed by Sony's president Kristine Belson at a slate presentation this morning.

    1. The clear winner with 66.7% of the votes was The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. The series was the longest and final entry in the universe lasting two seasons. Avengers garnered high critical and fan praise. It featured a wide roster of characters from nearly every facet of the Marvel universe. The series was unfortunately cancelled to make way for Avengers Assemble, though the exact reason for this has continued to confuse fans as to the exact reason why.

    45 Years of Dirty Harry

    Today is the forty-fifth anniversary of the premiere of Dirty Harry. The film follows a San Francisco cop named "Dirty" Harry Callahan as he tries to stop a serial killer terrorizing the city, inspired by the real life Zodiac killings that were going on in the San Francisco Bay Area at the time. It was highly controversial at the time but became one of the most iconic films in the cop genre and perhaps the most iconic role for actor Clint Eastwood. The film was the fourth highest grossing film of the year and spawned four sequels. The famous "Do you feel lucky, Punk?" scene has become engrained in popular culture while it skyrocketed sales of the Smith & Wesson Model 29 revolver. Sadly, though, it also inspired some real life terror as some…
