  1. Things We Saw Today: Hello Yes I’d Like to Play This Game Now Please

    The princess is in whatever castle she damn well pleases.

    This amazing redesign of Princess Peach (by Kirbi Fagan) is just one of many great female character redesigns in a blog post by Lauren Panepinto about the male gaze in art and entertainment and how including female perspectives doesn't take anything away from anyone else. Give it a read, check out the awesome art, and maybe join the invite-only Women in Fantasy Illustration Facebook group if you're so inclined.

    "What's wrong with wanting to be Batman's wife?" Nothing, I guess, except that this is the message we'd much rather send to little geek girls. Bravo.

  6. Oh Nothing, Just Stan Lee Dancing in a Korean Music Video

    Wait, what?

    Korean actress and singer Clara just released a music video for her new song, "Gwiyomi Song 2," which (obv) has a series of dance moves to go along with it. With literally no explanation whatsoever, Stan Lee appears in the video, doing the Gwiyomi dance. Does it matter why, really?

  7. Stan Lee Has Some Delightfully Old-Grandpa Things To Say About Vampires In New Rant Video

    "Get them off my lawn!"

    I fear that Stan Lee may missed the entire point of vampires in this most recent rant, but I'm not going to be the one to tell him that. He's just so adorable. Just don't try to explain the difference between Frankenstein and Frankenstein's monster next, or we'll probably end up breaking him.

  8. Here’s the Cleverest Stan Lee Cameo Yet

    WARNING: Contains Pun

    Ha ha see because it's a pun, or play on words, between the setting of a carved relief like a portrait onto a background of contrasting color to create an art piece or item of jewelry, and the more often used meaning of a small but significant role for a famous or infamous person in a larger work of art.

  9. In Which Stan Lee Discusses The History Of His Mustache

    Excelsior!

    As a person without facial hair, I had no idea that owning a mustache was such a complicated, nuanced affair. Thank you, Mr. Lee, for taking the time to address this very important subject.

  10. Stan Lee’s Original GOTG Cameo Was A Bit Too Naughty For Marvel

    Not like that, get your mind out of the Stan Lee gutter. Sheesh.

    Stan Lee's cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy is pretty great—he gets to pretend like he's mackin' on a younger lady, and Rocket gets to make some solid jokes at his expense. But at Dragon Con, director James Gunn revealed that he originally had a bit more vulgar cameo in mind—one that didn't fly with the head honchos at Marvel.

  12. Stan Lee Jokes Batman v Superman Would Make More Money With Him in It, Talks Avengers 2 Cameo

    Shots fired, DC.

    You asked for it, and Stan Lee will deliver: he will descend from his holy pedestal to grace The Avengers: Age of Ultron with his visage. It's the first time he's made a cameo in a Marvel movie since the last Marvel movie, so hold onto your hats and get ready to get curmudgeonly. He also teased Batman v Superman that it would make more money if he was in it, so... Shots fired, DC.

  13. Stan Lee Rants About Long Movie Credits, But We Love Him Anyway [VIDEO]

    Exelsior!

    As much as I disagree completely with this video from Stan Lee, I can't help but smile hearing him complain. Sure, the film industry is very complex and everyone who's involved in production should be recognized even if they're not a handsome movie star, but look at how adorably cranky he gets! He's like the nerdy Andy Rooney or something. You just want to give him a nice cup of tea and listen to him talk about how weird the '70s were.

  14. Teenage George R.R. Martin Once Sent a Very Sarcastic Letter To Stan Lee And Jack Kirby

    Dear Sirs, more incest and bloodletting!

    In 1963, a young George R. Martin (apparently that second initial didn't make an appearance until later) wrote a highly sarcastic letter to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Thank you, Marvel, for sharing this with us all.

  15. She-Hulk Co-Creator Stan Lee Reacts to David Goyer’s “Porn Star” Statements

    Excelsior!

    I know I was looking for a new female superhero, and the idea of an intelligent Hulk-type grabbed me. ...Never for an instant did I want her as a love interest for Hulk. Only a nut would even think of that. -- Stan Lee, speaking to The Washington Post's Comic Riffs. Stan Lee's reasons for creating She-Hulk (which we covered in our piece on David Goyer's comments yesterday) might not have been entirely as he says, but the problems with the screenwriter's statements stand. For one, Goyer's perfectly confident his words will be respected even if they reveal a broad ignorance of both the in-comics appearances of the character he's talking about and the known industry stories of their creation. For another, he's perfectly comfortable with at-a-glance assigning a female character to the "just there for the T&A" box, a trend we've seen over and over again with male movie reviewers and Black Widow. And further, his statements do nothing to shame these hypothetical sex-fantasy-crazed writers who created his hypothetical She-Hulk or hold them responsible for being a part of the problem of women's representation in genre fiction.

  18. Agents of SHIELD Confirms Two New Comic Villains, Future of Mike Peterson

    Excelsior!

    I'm not entirely certain that these panels are a depiction of the secondary Asgardian character Lorelei, but I am amused enough by Loki here to use it anyway. If you don't want to find out what lies in store for J. August Richards' least lucky SHIELD character, then read no further.

  20. Stan Lee Will Not Be Getting A Guardians Of The Galaxy Cameo and Here’s Why

    Don't worry, it's not because he's too old. That's impossible.

    Yes, it's true: Stan Lee recently revealed that he will not be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy in any way. But that's okay, we swear! The world isn't ending. He's got a perfectly reasonable explanation for why he won't be there.
