Here are 7 facts about the X-Men that you might not know

Excited about X-Men: Days of Future Past? Yeah, we are too. Would you be as excited if the movie was called The Merry Mutants: Days of Future Past? Probably not as much!

10 things you probably didn't know about Spider-Man

Maybe he's your favorite superhero. Maybe you watched all the movies. Maybe you read most of the comics. Maybe you always thought you could relate to Peter Parker.

Which superhero had the coolest and best secret headquarters?

Being a superhero is the best job in the world. Not only do you save the world and get the girl and receive the world's adulation, you're also somehow rich enough (even though you're above the idea of money) to have a sick secret headquarters that every kid dreams about. And though your hero headquarters are typically » 4/02/14 6:28pm 4/02/14 6:28pm

How much money would it cost to be Captain America?

Want to be an All-American superhero with a heart of gold? You only need a little over 54 million bucks, a time traveling device to send you back to the 1940s, a good vibranium source and a healthy budget for food.

Comic book God Stan Lee explains his beef with Superman

Though the world of comic book superheroes requires a suspension of disbelief, there are still rules even superheroes need to follow! Things just can't happen when they don't make sense! At least that's what comic book legend Stan Lee thinks. And if he thinks like that, we should listen. Here he explains why he really… » 11/05/13 9:58pm 11/05/13 9:58pm

An awesome guy made an insane Thor hammer that smashes everything

This ridiculously awesome man made version of Thor's hammer Mjölnir is so impressive that even our most Thor-like human Chris Hemsworth would have trouble swinging it around. Though it's not quite the weight of 300 billion elephants, it's the closest thing to Mjölnir on Earth. That's because it's made from 10 separate… » 11/04/13 7:03pm 11/04/13 7:03pm

The Complete Visual History of Wolverine's Suit

Oh, that yellow spandex with beautiful blue trunks. As classic as that suit was, I have no beef with Wolverine's badassery tossing that away in the movies (plus, with a body like Hugh Jackman's...). But still, it's nice to see the Wolverine we all loved as a child again. Here's the full history of all the suits that… » 7/18/13 10:30pm 7/18/13 10:30pm

What If... The Avengers Were All Sentient Artificial Intelligences?

"What if" is sort of a loaded phrase in the Marvel Universe. Writers have always been able to ramble off a What If... Wolverine had hot dogs for claws!? and then you'd see "WHAT IF: HOT DOG WOLVERINE" on a spinner rack. But sometimes, just from the nature of comics being batshit insane, we get thought experiments… » 7/02/13 5:35pm 7/02/13 5:35pm

Image Will Sell All Digital Comics with No DRM

Well, this is a weird little thing that could be a very big deal. Image Comics—home of series like Invincible and The Walking Dead—just said it's going to sell its own comics as DRM-free PDFs. You buy a digital comic straight from Image, and you download a PDF than you're free to give to whomever you want. It's the… » 7/02/13 3:29pm 7/02/13 3:29pm

Digital Comics Finally Get Subscriptions and Discounted Collections

This is one of those times when you see the news and think to yourself, Wait, they just got that? Comixology—the biggest digital comics distribution platform and the service that powers the official apps of Marvel, DC, Image, and other publishers—finally has subscriptions.

What If the Superheroes from The Avengers Existed in Real Life?

Because we don't have any real life superheroes in this totally lame world of ours, we obsess over the lives of silly celebrities with beautiful cheekbones and photoshopped curves and cry over athletes wearing fresh laundry. It's what we call fun! But if superheroes existed on Earth, all those puny humans would never… » 6/25/13 9:31pm 6/25/13 9:31pm

The Reason We Need a New Superman Movie Is Because the Last One Sucked

Studios make movies so they can fill seats to print money to make more movies to fill more seats to print more money. And the easiest way to start printing money is to go with an established movie franchise. Like Superman! But the real reason we need a new Superman movie (as opposed to needing a new Spider-Man movie)… » 6/04/13 9:00pm 6/04/13 9:00pm

This Guy Built the Most Incredible Spider-Man Suit Ever

Though building out the armor required for an Iron Man suit is obviously (some would say imposingly) impressive, re-creating the detailed webbing and lithe nature of Spider-Man's suit is just as incredible a feat. MoonSpider shared the Spider-Man suit he made and it puts all Halloween Spidey costumes to shame. » 5/20/13 11:39pm 5/20/13 11:39pm

If Superheroes Were Sponsored By Famous Brands

How do superheroes afford being, well, superheroes? It doesn't seem too lucrative a gig given the time commitment and hazardous work conditions but yet every hero still seems to make ends meet. But if superheroes are struggling financially, they should totally look into sponsoring themselves. Iron Man by McDonald's.… » 3/11/13 8:20pm 3/11/13 8:20pm
