Out of all of the Avengers, Captain America is probably my least favorite. But he might be able to win me over with some of his awesome cupcakes. You know they are the most direct way to a man’s heart.
This is so awesome! When I was growing up, a hot Friday night was watching The Incredible Hulk followed by The Dukes of Hazzard. It’s been a long time since a decent superhero show has been on television, and it looks like ABC is out to remedy that.
I imagine physicists all over the world must have been titillated by the news that broke out yesterday: scientists at the CERN laboratory have discovered what they think is the Higgs Boson particle.

The first episode of the new geek series has aired and the episode is up on YouTube right now. The series is called Super Power Beat Down and the initial episode pits two well-known Batmobiles against each other in a drag race.

You probably already know that Bryan Lee O’Malley’s popular Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is getting a movie adaptation. It turns out that there will be a Scott Pilgrim video game too, although that seems to be inevitable, given the numerous video game references in the comic.
Who loves writing term papers? Me neither. And if this archeological find is any indication, our beloved comic book heroes must have hated writing them too, mainly because they suck at it. Well, not everyone – the nerdy Peter Parker got an A+ on his paper, although I doubt his teacher knows the tragic story behind this:
Everyone expected a comic app for the iPad, and Marvel delivered. Marvel Comics for iPad is a lot like iTunes, combining a comic book store and a reader into one app. The reader allows for page-by-page as well as frame-by-frame scrolling, and there are thumbnails at the bottom that let users skip to any page.
Next month, Marvel will release a slew of comic books with alternate covers that feature different renditions of Iron Man. Marvel calls its gimmick Iron Man by Design, and oddly enough, none of the books are Iron Man titles.
Here’s a new and different idea for a DIY iPod case: use pages of old comics. A little masking tape, a few pages of killer images, and the ability to cut a straight line with scissors is all it took to assemble this chic custom case.
Topless Robot posted the trailers for the upcoming Iron Man and Wolverine anime. According to Mania, both features will be shown on Animax in spring 2010. Both of them will be produced by super studio Madhouse, responsible for classics like Ninja Scroll, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, Trigun, Millennium Actress, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Hajime no Ippo and many other awesome stuff that I want to watch again.
