Character Neglect: The Human Torch

As a writer, I love reading or watching various media and pondering what I would do with this character or that one. It's my favorite creative past time and one of the big reasons I enjoy writing fanfiction. I think that's even half the reason I've written most of my fic.

The Worst Batman story EVER

The trouble with doing this "worst story ever" thing on DC characters is that there's a lot you have to take into consideration. The 1940's-70's were a far different time, people didn't take comics as seriously and so you can understand some of the goofiness of the times.

I haven't done one of these in a while but this is a nice bit of trivia. Where is the one place other than Edwards Air Force Base and the Kennedy Space Center that the Space Shuttle has landed from orbit? (Hint - this is a photo of the landing.) » 3/30/15 11:34am Today 11:34am

The Last Man On Earth

Spoiler Warning for anyone who hasn't watched the show yet, it's on Hulu so if you can put up with the same annoying ads every five-ten minutes then I would suggest you go take a look. It's worth watching. You've watched it? Ok let's continue. » 3/30/15 11:03am Today 11:03am
