What Happens When You Run A Secret Supervillain Prison?

One of the biggest instances of Fridge Logic on The Flash is the secret prison they have to hold metahumans inside the particle accelerator pipeline. It's one thing to say a normal prison can't hold them — which is true, considering one's a teleporter and one can turn into mist — but it's another to run an entire… » 4/02/15 12:46am Today 12:46am

A History of Marvel Crossovers: The Silver Age

When last we left off, superhero comics had waned and been replaced by horror comics. In the Golden Age of Marvel, most heroes inhabited separate worlds, rarely crossing over, with two exceptions: the Human Torch/Sub-Mariner fight and the short-lived All-Winners Squad. When Timely Comics became Atlas, they tried to… » 4/01/15 11:16pm Yesterday 11:16pm

Eggs For Sale, Mysterious Eggs For Sale

Good day! I hope this post finds you well. I'll get right to it: my great-uncle passed away suddenly, and left me quite an inheritance. A house— very likely ghost free— with a cellar just FULL of these things. Who wants 'em? » 4/01/15 5:17pm Yesterday 5:17pm

Wednesday Android Update: I Hate Today Edition

Ugh. I hate April Fool's Day with a passion. I feel almost like what's her name in Mean Girls. YOU CAN'T SIT WITH US! That's in regards to anyone who tries messing with me today.

One perfect issue: Thunderbolts #1

Some might feel going a bit too far calling this "Perfect" but to me, it is. It's an issue famous for its final page, of course, but to me, the reason that works is what came before it. It's a product of its time and something I truly and honestly believe just can't work again. If that's not perfection, I don't know… » 4/01/15 2:09pm Yesterday 2:09pm
