  1. Review: Sterling Gates’ The Posthuman Project Provides An All-Ages Alternative to Age of Ultron

    OK, less "alternative" and more "in addition to," but still.

    You might know Sterling Gates' work from comics, including Supergirl, Superman, and Green Lantern Corps. However, Gates is also a screenwriter and he, along with writer, Matthew Price, and director, Kyle Roberts, have created an indie superhero film called The Posthuman Project, which is available on iTunes and other VOD outlets TODAY!

  4. 10 Rules For Making A Modern Transgender Superhero

    I started this article originally to write about transgender superheroes in comics but that proved much more difficult than I first thought it would be.

    Phillys Latour Doyle parachuted into Normandy, where she "posed as a poor French girl, riding her bicycle across the countryside to sell soap to German soldiers in order to give away their positions to the Allies." She did some literal avenging. She's a badass. (via Moviepilot)

  9. Dorkly Presents the 5 Weirdest Redesigns of Your Favorite Comic Characters

    OK, this looks bad.

    Every once in a while, comics creators try to shake things up and bring a new perspective to classic superhero attire. Sometimes it works, like with Carol Danvers or the latest Batgirl. Sometimes it decidedly does not. Here are those times, as curated by Dorkly.

  13. Wear This Superhero Cologne to Cover Up the Stink of Your Manly, Heroic Angst

    "My parents are dead, but man do I smell good!"

    Sadly, these superhero colognes exist only in the mind and the concept art of web design company Animink. But can any of us really be said to exist? The cosmos is so unthinkably vast that all human experience is only a pinprick within its cavernous emptiness. If we have no effect at all on the darkness around us, can we really claim to be at all? Who are you? Who am I? Who is Batman, and what does he smell like? Rancid sweat with slight undertones of leather and sweat, right? It has to be gross.

  14. Hijab-Wearing Superhero Fan Draws Herself As Various Comic Book Characters

    And it was good.

    "I am a Muslim girl (who wears a hijab) and I prefer to wear long/loose things that go below the butt" writes Tumblrer Nora. So when Nora participates in the Draw Yourself Challenge, those are the duds her chosen superheroes wear as well. The result is pretty dang nifty. It might be a day early to start flipping one's lid over America-related stuff, but that flag hijab makes me want to do a dance.

  16. Gorgeous Superhero Watercolors To Class Up Your Living Space

    Why Not Do It With Some Style?

    Only some of these paintings are available to purchase as prints on artist Blule's website, but she does also have a print of Little Red Riding Hood where the hood is the wolf's corpse. I feel the need to point that out, because... Little Red Riding Hood where the hood is the wolf's corpse. C'mon. Never has a watercolor been so metal.

  17. In Which Janelle Monáe Inspires Kids To Become Their Own Superheroes [Video]

    We Can Be Heroes

    I imagine that for many of you, this will resonate as strongly as it did for me. In this music video for android superstar Janelle Monáe's cover of David Bowie's "Heroes," bullied school kids find strength in comic books, which inspire them to become caped crusaders of their own. If you can make it to the end without getting misty-eyed, you are tougher than I. On a side note, I would absolutely read a comic book in which Janelle Monáe fights crime. (via io9)

  18. These Illustrated Superhero Silhouettes Shed Light On Origin Stories

    Submitted For Your Approval

    Superhero origins are often frightening or humbling, and I think that's what we love about them. We love the idea that an ordinary human being can become something extraordinary. We love the idea that even gods and aliens can find kinship with humanity. I see those qualities reflected in Khoa Ho's "Superheroes - Past/Present" poster series, and I admire how simply that effect is achieved. Click through for a sampling of his work. Prints are available at Hero Complex Gallery.

  20. The Scarlet Pimpernel and What Superheroes Owe to Baroness Emma Orczy

    The Escapist : The Big Picture : Scarlet Unity - What Assassin's Creed and Batman Have in Common
    You'd think after discovering that Alexandre Dumas was multiracial years ago, I'd have learned to assume less about the writers of historical adventure novels, but I had no idea that The Scarlet Pimpernel was written by a woman. Or narrated by a woman! They left that out of the Broadway show and illustrated book retelling of the Looney Tunes adaptation that were, uh, my only experiences of the story as a kid. Here's to reading the original! Previously in Badass Women in History
