    We'll be there with bells on.

    Hey! Did you guys know there are a lot of people who would like to see a female-led superhero movie? It's true! And thankfully, it's a point of discussion that's gotten too loud to ignore. In an interview with Comic Book Resources, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige addressed the question we've been asking since, oh, forever: just how long before we see a female-led Marvel film?

    I've been ogling Craig Drake's work for a while now and when I saw he was doing a solo show, I lamented not having $200 for his work featuring Buffy...on wood! Then I found out there were prints. But they were already sold out (#nerdworldproblems). However, thanks to "The Internet," I can look at his gorgeous images until my heart is content. Take a look at a few of his pieces featuring characters from Game of Thrones, Kill Bill, Star Wars, and more.

  5. Disney Characters Dressed Up As Other Characters for Halloween, Take Three

    Great Hera!

    Artist Isaiah K Stephens’ previous sets of Disney characters dressed up as other fictional characters are great and all (Mulan as Xena!), but they didn’t have Meg from Hercules dressed as Catwoman. Hey, we’re all allowed to be biased toward our favorite Disney princesses.

  7. 10 of the Most Hardcore, Eyepatch Wearing Characters in Geekdom

    Power Grid

    Eyepatches have a long history of showing up on all sorts of characters, and most of the time they just make said character look even more badass. Sometimes we meet the character and they already have the eyepatch, and sometimes we are unbelievably horrified when a character who we’ve grown to love over the course of seven however many seasons loses an eye. As it turns out, there are a lot of characters in geekdom with eyepatches, many of whom are just cool, if not cooler, without their depth perception. Surprisingly, we couldn’t find a single pirate contender for our list, but we certainly encountered enough examples of the eyepatch of power to make up for it. Lets hear it for the runners up on this list: Doctor Who’s Madam Kovarian, King Lear’s Gloucester, and all the other characters who lost both eyes, and didn’t make our list. (Be warned, there are spoilers ahead. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica, and Venture Bros. fans, navigate with care.) Now feast your eyes on our list of amazing, eyepatch clad characters.

  8. Say Hello to the Uma Thurman of Parasitoid Wasps, Because That’s a Thing Now

    I keep a mental list of places in the world to never go, and one of those is Brazil, thanks to the existence of the terrifying Brazilian wandering spider. Trust me, it's awful. I'm afraid I now have to add Papua New Guinea and Thailand to the list, because of three new species of parasitoid wasps that entomologists have recently discovered in those countries. But we discover new species all the time. Here's what's different about these three: They're named after pop culture icons, like Uma Thurman's character in the Kill Bill movies.

  9. Terrifying Parasite Wasp Named After Beatrix Kiddo and That’s Awesome From All Angles

    Good News Everyone!

    If you're unfamiliar with Kill Bill, it's a two part Quentin Tarantino series featuring Uma Thurman as the Bride, neé Beatrix Kiddo, an assassin newly awakened from a coma who sets out to kill all the people who put her in it and took her unborn child, including the child's father, Bill. In some of the most famous fight scenes in the series, she wears a yellow tracksuit with black stripes,while Flight of the Bumblebee plays in the background. If you're unfamiliar with parasite wasps, they're the xenomorphs of the wasp world, in the genus Braconidae. Every insect in Braconidae has one thing in common: they lay their eggs in the sometimes still living bodies of their prey, so that when the babies hatch they're already inside their first meal. New species Cystomastacoides kiddo has indeed been named after Beatrix, and yes, it is indeed bright yellow.

  16. Take a Look at Some Awesome Stuntwomen From Throughout the Years

    i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

    There are a lot of people in the entertainment industry who don't get the recognition they deserve: CGI actors, crafts services, janitors, third assistant directors, the list goes on and on. On that list, alongside all the script supervisors but put in vastly more physical danger are the stuntpeople. They may not get to make the speeches at the Golden Globes, but we see the efforts of their work in every action and superhero movie and TV show we watch, and in plenty of other places as well. Flavorwire put together a great (and thorough) slideshow of actor and their stunt doubles, but let's take a look at some of the ladies behind our favorite ladies:

  17. Momtagonists: 7 Moms Who Get to Be The Hero

    Power Grid

    It’s Mother’s Day this weekend, and while we’ve covered horrible moms and great moms, we thought we’d spend this week talking about moms who get to be the heroes. This list focuses on mothers who are also leading protagonists, not just supporting characters to others with bigger roles. Geekdom is full of secondary parental figures, usually there to advise, get killed for dramatic effect, or to rebel against. These moms, however, are front and center and waving their mom flags high, and even if they might not be the only protagonist in their story, their character development is just as much a part of the whole as the other characters.

  19. Encore! 10 More Non-Costumed, Non-Powered Female Heroines

    Power Grid

    Last month, we did a list of ten female heroes who don't wear costumes and don't have super powers... even though most of the people around them (or the people or things they're fighting) have one or the other. You guys seemed to really like it, which was nice, I mean that's what we always strive for; but you also had a lot of good ideas to add to the list. So, naturally, we decided we had to do another one.
