  1. The Winter Olympics Will Have a Giant Kryptonian Face Projector, the World Engine Is Working

    Behold MegaFace, Destroyer of... Faces...

    It seems that Zod's plan to turn Earth into Krypton in Man of Steel wasn't entirely unsuccessful, as this year's Winter Olympics in Sochi will have a building-size version of the pin art face displays used by the Kryptonians. They're calling it MegaFace. Yeah, they pretty much named it after Megatron. Get your references straight, Russia.

  4. Neil DeGrasse Tyson Found Krypton for Superman in Comics and For Us in Real Life

    Everybody loves Neil DeGrasse Tyson. So it's no surprise that when DC Comics decided that Superman would try to find Krypton in the night sky in an upcoming issue of ACTION COMICS, they thought Mr. Tyson should be the person to help the Man of Steel. (In such a vulnerable moment, it's important to have support from a friend, right?)

  6. Barack Obama Is Going to Be on MythBusters

    We all already knew that President Barack Obama was a bit of a geek, what with his buying Star Wars memorabilia in public, joking about dilithium crystals, and telling reporters that he was actually born on Krypton, sent by his father Jor-El to save Earth. (Maybe that's what all those birth certificate rumors are actually about?) Now, he's about to add another feather to his cap o' geekiness by appearing on the Discovery Channel's Mythbusters. Obama will appear in an episode exploring the ancient Greek myth that scientist Archimedes was able to set invading Roman ships on fire using reflected, focused light.
