Marvel gets all the play when it comes to superhero movies so far (though that could soon change), but DC Comics has some cool superheroes too. Fans of these heroes can now get their hands on some ridiculously cute plush versions.
I’m still not sure how I feel about a movie that has Superman and Batman fighting each other. They are both superheroes and I don’t think that Batman has much of a chance against Superman in a fight – after all, he’s just a man, and Superman is well, not.
Many of the female bad guys in the comic book world aren’t purely bad. These characters always seem to me to be right on the verge between full bad and somewhat good. A new series of Vinyl Vixens statues have turned up to celebrate three of these morally ambiguous characters from the DC universe.
Last month I mentioned a DC Bombshells statue of Hawkgirl. The statue is in the style of ’40s pinup art and was designed by Ant Lucia and sculpted by Tim Miller. If you liked that statue, even though it was of a more obscure super heroine, you will love this one from the same guys.
These Marvel and DC Comics decorated superhero eggs are pretty impressive. You get all of your favorites in egg form. There’s the Hulk, Spider-Man (no Doctor Egg-topus though), Batman, Green Lantern and more. I would have loved to get these in my Easter basket as a kid.
I have no idea what this is for, but I like it! As a matter of fact, I wouldn’t mind having one of these in my living room – or at least in my la-bor-a-tory. It’s actually something called a mercury arc valve rectifier, and it sure looks cool when powered up.
