What Were They Thinking: I Wish They’d Destroyed This

You know, one thing has surprised me about this weeks What Were They Thinking. In all the weeks we've done this feature, a feature where we look at the stupidest, most ill-advised things in comic book history, we have yet to look at DC's Elseworlds. You know, that imprint that they publish all of the stories that are too weird to be considered canon to DC continuity, which is saying something when it is canon that you can punch a whole in the fabric of the universe with just your fist. Admittedly some of the stuff in there is good, some even very good, but that doesn't mean there isn't dross. And what dross it is. So without further ado, I present to you Superman Wonder Woman: Whom Gods Destroy

Poll Position: Best X-Men Team Member

Ok guys, classic style poll for this week. Easy premise, who is the greatest member of the X-Men, past and present. We're including all characters who have been a part of the main X-Men team or one of the sub-teams such as X-Factor or X-Force. However, we are not counting characters like Magneto, Juggernaut, Deadpool or Spider-Man, because whilst they may have been a member of the team at some point they are more famous for their roles outside of the team as either villains or solo characters. As per usual, I have given you 10 characters to start and you can add your own suggestions, provided you give both the characters hero identity and real name.

The List: Another Top 10 Characters I’d Like To See In The DCEU

So, as promised last week, when I did Another Top 10 Characters I'd Like To See In The MCU, this week I'm focusing on the DCEU and characters I didn't mention the last time I did a list about who I'd like to see in the DCEU (so no Martian Manhunter, Nightwing, Batgirl or Ocean Master on this list). Problem is, the DCEU is so much harder to do than the MCU, because whilst Marvel have lots of established franchises at this point and TV shows that tie into the cinematic universe, DC only really has the Justice League characters and Suicide Squad whilst keeping their Films and TV Shows completely separate (and there's that whole aversion to origin stories thing they have). So I'm not going to suggest anything for TV because, honestly, keep the Arrowverse as far away from the DCEU as possible please. With that in mind, here are another 10 characters I'd like to see in the DCEU.

Character Design Challenge #304 – Masterworks

Your challenge this week is to recreate a portion of The Scream by Edvard Munch using HeroMachine. There is no limit on number of entries this week.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.

Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this).

This contest will close on Sunday, January 15th at 9:00am Eastern.

2016 Movie Retrospective

Hey everyone, it’s that time of the year again where we look back on the movies of the previous year. I didn’t have enough to do a Top 10 of both Best and Worst, so it’s all being lumped together into one mega-list. So, without further ado, let’s see how we did, starting with the worst and working our way up to the best. There's a lot to talk about, so we won't be getting into spoilers either. Let's begin!

Poll Position: Ranking All Current MCU Films

So, first Poll Position of the new year. So it needs to be something special right? Well, as this year will see the release of 3 Marvel Cinematic Universe Films and edges us ever closer to Marvels end game of the Infinity War, why not do a poll to find out which MCU film people think is the best, and which is the worst. You can vote for as many films as you want once per day, obviously you can't add any films because I've included all of the current MCU films already so there's nothing to add.
