Congratulations, human race, we've survived yet another prophesied doomsday scenario and can continue on with our lives without the fear of fire raining down from the sky. There's only one way we know how to celebrate such a momentous occasion right: Crack open a can of green beans from the emergency rations stockpile, kick back, and watch a whole bunch of end of the world movies with the smug satisfaction that only comes from making an entire segment of the world's population look like a bunch of raving crackpots. For the sake of time, YouTube user Critica Daquele Filme has strung together some of the best scenes from these films in one bombastic supercut package, showcasing what could have been, but thankfully wasn't.
Well, boys and girls, it looks like the time has finally come: Today's the day mankind bids farewell to its existence and says a hearty hello to the feathered serpent god, Kukulkan, as he finally returns to our earthly plane. Even as we stare into the face of our imminent destruction, be thankful that we don't live in the fictitious realms of comic books. Why? Because if we did, every single day would feel like the apocalypse, what with so many intergalactic warlords, omnipotent entities, and cataclysms from the depths of space and beyond laying waste to Earth. If beings like that were tearing things up right here, right now, 12/21/12 truly would be a day to remember. On that note, here's seven comic book characters you wouldn't want to see on December 21st -- though your efforts to hide would prove futile!
With the purported 2012 Apocalypse only a mere 18 days away, many folks are more on edge than ever. Russia in particular has its hands full trying to calm the public's anxieties over the Mayan feathered serpent god Kukulkan's return. Facing widespread panic and erratic behavior among the populace, Moscow's Ministry of Emergency Situations has come forward and declared that, no, there will not be a world-ending cataclysm come December 21st. Leaving us to ask, fine, but says who?
