All the Spiderman: Every Costume Spidey has Ever Worn

As you’re all aware, superheros are wont to change their costumes every now and then. Usually it comes with a new arc in their story. Sometimes the new costume may accommodate new features.

Somebody Needs a Nap: The Avengers as Children

Artist Ben Oliver decided it was high time that someone look into what the Avengers looked like as kindergarteners. The answer is generally grumpy and sometimes bearded. Two things that you just don’t want to see in a 5-year-old. It looks like all these kids have a really rough home life. And that saddens me. …

By show of hands, how many of you have ever read a Hawkgirl comic? I thought as much. Well the folks over at QMx decided we needed a group of 1940’s style pinups of the Heroines from the DC comics. No, I’m not really sure who half of these girls are but I would be …

Uncanny: New Scarlet Johansson as Black Widow Action Figure

Sometimes toys are creepy and there is no shame in admitting that you would rather burn down the house than let that horrible porcelain doll watch you sleep. Then there are toys that are creepy in the same way but you secretly want to purchase and set on the nightstand so it can be the …

Badass Michonne Barbie will Murder Classic Barbie

Flickr user Peewee Parker created this custom-made Michonne doll from The Walking Dead. She looks like she’d sneak up on Barbie’s Dream House and take it as her own. All the blood on the walls would hurt the resale value but parking the convertible out front will attract a lot of buyers anyway. It’s about …
