Superman's Action Comics' Cover Perfectly Recreated As a Springy Statue…

Factory Entertainment calls its line of spring-enhanced collectibles Motion Statues, but that's really just a fancy way to avoid calling them Bobbleheads and dodge a potential lawsuit. It's the same general idea, except that instead of a giant oversized head bouncing around, we have Superman lifting a car in a scene… » 3/18/15 4:20pm 3/18/15 4:20pm

Swimming in an iceberg is like being inside the Fortress of Solitude

Swimming inside an iceberg looks amazing because the ice looks like glass and that's crazy, and because it kind of resembles an underwater version of Superman's Fortress of Solitude. Or at least, like a crystal palace. National Geographic shows us how a free diver explores the ice cold waters below. » 10/20/14 10:13pm 10/20/14 10:13pm

50 ways that Superman could beat Batman in a fight

Batman may be infinitely cooler than Superman but let's not kid around here, a Batman vs Superman fight isn't even a contest. Pound for pound, power for power, Superman would destroy Batman. So instead of making a full Batman vs Superman movie, they should just show the different ways Superman could kill Batman. » 9/29/14 10:54pm 9/29/14 10:54pm

Flying man in wingsuit comes close to crashing into Rio's Jesus statue

A good policy on all wingsuit jumps is to never crash into anything. A secondary policy to follow would be if you do crash into something, make sure it's soft and not Rio de Janeiro's 125-foot tall Christ the Redeemer statue. Jesus Christ may be forgiving but his statue made of 635 metric tons of reinforced concrete… » 2/25/14 9:44pm 2/25/14 9:44pm

Dear Superman: Don't Spin Earth Backwards, You'll Break Everything

Remember how Christopher Reeve's Superman spun the earth backward to go back in time and save Lois? Turns out, he probably shouldn't have done that, because slowing the earth's rotation to a stop would seriously mess up everything on our planet, as Earth Unplugged explains. Not cool, Superman. » 2/15/14 11:00am 2/15/14 11:00am

Flying man in wingsuit flies deathly close to the ground like Superman

He's Superman. Actually, I take it back. I don't even think Superman would fly this impossibly close to the ground because it's just ridiculous. Insane, really. That didn't stop wingsuit pilot Brian Drake from zipping mere feet from the ground though. Look at him tear through the gully and marvel at death being… » 12/18/13 7:26pm 12/18/13 7:26pm

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

Metropolis: The Real-Life Town That Superman Couldn't Save

Until the 1970s, the tiny southern Illinois town of Metropolis had two claims to fame: The long-demolished fort George Washington had founded nearby, and the Uranium Hexafluoride Processing Facility, which employed hundreds of its citizens. But in June 1972, the Illinois House of Representatives and DC Comics gave… » 8/22/13 12:24pm 8/22/13 12:24pm

They're doing a Superman/Batman movie... but that's not the big news

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder just came out and rocked our worlds at Comic-Con. Not just announcing that Batman will be in the Superman sequel — which he did with a cool-looking metallic Superman-Batman logo that drove the crowd nuts. But that was not the biggest deal. » 7/20/13 4:58pm 7/20/13 4:58pm
