The Mary Sue’s Favorite Posts of 2013

We’ve shown you the posts that got you clicking and talking in 2013, but now it’s time to get biased. See, all of us here at The Mary Sue love writing for The Mary Sue in general, but there are some posts that we just love more than the others. Maybe something exciting happened. Maybe something disappointing happened and we relished the opportunity to write about it and discuss it with our readers. Maybe someone sent us superhero-themed sex toys. 2013 was a weird year.

The Mary Sue’s 2013 Summer Movie Wrap-Up

This summer was a weird one. It felt, in a way, like were were still coming down from the high of The Avengers, the movie that ruled our hearts, minds, and wallets a single summer ago. On hand to catch us as we fell were some good movies, some bad movies, some movies that we weren’t angry at, just disappointed, and one shining example of Oh please God, no, why did this movie happen?!

We’re taking a fond (or, in some cases, not-so-fond) look back at the summer of 2013′s giant monsters, giant robots, giant stuffed rabbits, and the giant pile of wrongness that was a whole lot o’ whitewashing. Whew. With the summer over, let’s get ready for the end-of-year releases. More Hunger Games, Thor, and The Hobbit are right around the corner.

San Diego Comic-Con, kicking off tomorrow and running through this Sunday, is four days of condensed joyful, nerdy madness. None of The Mary Sue team will be attending the con (no one’s sadder about it than us), but if we were to be magically whisked away to nerd Mecca, here are some—OK, a lot—of the panels we wish we could stand in line for hours to attend.

You going to any of them? Feel free to drop us a comment telling us what we missed. Feel free to gloat a little, too. That’s what we’d do in your place.

Technology Helps Hospitals Get Your Superhero Back Up and Running

Hospitals are a necessary part of the infrastructure of the comic book world but not one that’s generally paid a whole lot of attention to. They’re like bathrooms on spaceships: You know they’re there, and you know people have to use them (don’t tell me Spider-Man hasn’t given himself a concussion with an over-enthusiastic swing at least once), but they just don’t show up all that often unless it’s to blow one up The Dark Knight-style.
