Caption Contest Delayed

I had a last minute family outing to attend today and thus did not get around to judging or selecting a new image for this round of caption contest posts so I will get that done for you all some time tomorrow.

There’s No Place Like Chrome For The Holidays

While this has nothing really to do with superheroes, the pieces have a very cool Transformer/mech vibe. Also inspires us all to think outside the box.

Happy Holidays all!

Character Building Delayed

Sorry about this guys. I haven’t actually had a chance to record it yet. Usually I’d try to get the episode recorded on Sunday when I’m not doing anything and then I’d edit it all together and pre-post it on Monday, ready for Tuesday. But this Sunday my family were putting up our Christmas decorations, so I was busy for most of the day and when I wasn’t it was still too noisy for me to record my audio decently because Xmas decorating round my house makes a loooooooooot of mess. Then yesterday I was at work and when I got back I had other things to sort out, what with it being my Mums birthday tomorrow. So yeah, long story short, I’m going to record the episode when I get back tonight (when this is posted I’ll be at work) and depending on what else happens today, I’ll try to get it edited and uploaded for you today, but it will be up much later than usual, afternoon sometime. But it might end up being delayed until tomorrow. Sorry ’bout that.

Geek Quiz ♯1

So, I’m gonna try something different this week. I can’t think of any decent questions for the Big Question, so instead I’m going to bring one of my old forum topics over to replace it (ironic really, as the Big Question started out as a forum topic as well).

The idea is simple, there’s ten questions on a variety of “geeky” subjects, ranging from Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comics, Movies, TV, Anime and Games. The person with the most correct answers wins, probably a no-prize, in true Marvel style. If you guys like this idea then I will try to keep it going as the Thursday blog post (it’s something different). Anyway, without further ado, lets jump in.

1. Name the original line up of the Justice Society as they appeared in All Star Comics ♯3 Winter 1940? (1 Point per member= 8 Points)

2. How many TV episodes of Doctor Who have the Zygons appeared in? (1 Point)

3. Which of these anime series didn’t have its origin in a manga published in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine? (1 Point)

a) Naruto

b) One Piece

c) Fairy Tail

d) Bleach

4. In what century is Star Trek: The Original Series set in? (1 Point)

5. How many episodes of Firefly aired in its original run? (1 Point)

6. Who was the first member of the Brotherhood of Mutants encountered by the X-Men (excluding Magneto)? (1 Point)

7. Name the actress set to play Wonder Woman in the up-coming Batman vs. Superman film. (1 Point)

8. Who was the composer responsible for the score of the Star Wars movies? (2 Points)

9. What is the opening line of J.R.R Tolkiens book The Hobbit (1 Point)

Bonus Point: Which Dwarf arrives at Bilbo’s home first? (1 Point)

10. In which game did Mario first appear in? (1 Point)

Bonus Point: What name was he given in said game? (1 Point)

Answers below the jump. No peaking now, that would be cheating.
