Fuck yeah, melancholy...

I think the worst thing to ever happen to Batman is him becoming super-mega-popular. How can any character have anything new to say or avoid caricature when he’s got the equivalent representation of an entire 24 hour news channel all about him?

The Ultimate Universe doesn’t get enough credit as an innovative idea. It was mismanaged to hell and back, and probably should’ve been shut down when readers/editorial lost interest in it rather than turning it into a Eli Roth movie.

But I wish comic book companies would be more open to doing easily identifiable reboots of their classic characters in a separate continuity rather than constantly regressing their legacy characters to the Silver Age status quo. 


Seduce me with Fringe references.

I would, but I’m trying to be a better man than my father.

Five Spider-Man movies and no Black Cat? C’mon. C’MON.

Unlikely simultaneous historical events





A poster on Reddit asks: What are two events that took place in the same time in history but don’t seem like they would have?

Spain was still a fascist dictatorship when Microsoft was founded.

There were no classes in calculus in Harvard’s curriculum for the first few years because calculus hadn’t been discovered yet.

Two empires [Roman & Ottoman] spanned the entire gap from Jesus to Babe Ruth.

When the pyramids were being built, there were still woolly mammoths.

The last use of the guillotine was in France the same year Star Wars came out.

Oxford University was over 300 years old when the Aztec Empire was founded.

When pilgrims were landing on Plymouth Rock, you could already visit what is now Santa Fe, New Mexico to stay at a hotel, eat at a restaurant and buy Native American silver.

The first wagon train of the Oregon Trail heads out the same year the fax machine is invented.

Nintendo was formed the same year Van Gogh painted Starry Night.

Cleopatra (the last Pharaoh of Egypt) lived closer to the moon landings than she did to the building of the Pyramids of Giza.

When Kublai Khan became the Mongol Emperor, the first humans were setting foot on New Zealand.

The world’s oldest living tree was already 1,000 years old when the Wooly Mammoths died out.

The steam-powered train was invented before the bicycle as we know it. (And bicycles only predate airplanes by 30 years)

Betty White is older than sliced bread.

Guns (or handcannons/fire-lances) had been in use in China for about 200 years when the English defeated the French at Crécy in 1346 through the novel use of the longbow.

The lives of Confucius, Socrates and Buddha all occurred around the same time. Buddha is thought to have died in 483 BC, Confucius died in 479 BC, and Socrates was born in 469 BC (a span of just 14 years)

Mauritania became the last country to ban slavery, over 5 years after the launch of the iPod.

During World War II, there were still many living former slaves in the US.

The Native Americans had a city, Cahokia, that was as populated as London or Paris in its peak during the 13th century. It remained the largest ever city in the United States until the 1740’s. It was completely abandoned by the time a white man saw it.


Mercenaries (2014)

A diplomatic official is captured and imprisoned while touring a war zone, so a team of elite female commandos is assembled to infiltrate a women’s prison for a daring rescue.

Starring Kristanna Loken, Brigitte Nielsen, Vivica A. Fox, Cynthia Rothrock, Zoë Bell and Nicole Bilderback.

Everyone I know is going to watch this movie and hate themselves for it.

Do you think white people can use the N-word in the utopian future of Star Trek? I mean, racism is literally over, but then again, it’s the Federation, they might be all “you can’t say dumb, that’s offensive to mute people!”

What about black aliens? Like, can Tuvok say it because he has a dark skin tone, or can he not because (presumably) his ancestors weren’t enslaved on the basis of race? Can Spock say it? He doesn’t have white privilege, he’s an alien. During the ENT time period, Robocop and his Terra Prime lackeys hated aliens, that’s like a hundred years before TOS. Slavery was four hundred years ago. So does Spock have a claim to being more oppressed than Uhura? 



"you can’t sexualize robots"



Any Darkseid story that doesn’t feature Kween Big Barda and Co-Kween Scott Free gets an immediate downgrade from me. You don’t have the Coyote without the Roadrunner, and you don’t have Darkseid without Big Free Love.
