Things We Saw Today: Marvel and DC iPhone Cases


These Chara-Cases that turn your iPhone into a superhero (or villain) should be on sale soon. Cap’s eyebrows are downright adorable. (via ScreenRant)

  • Scientists have figured out a way to permanently dye hair brown using gold nanoparticles. Now all I have to do is get filthy stinking rich and my transformation into Dot Matrix from Spaceballs can finally begin. (The Frisky)
  • Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines will be screening on Saturday, February 9th in New York City. I really enjoyed the film when I had the chance to see it last summer (here’s my review, if you’re so inclined) and thoroughly recommend going if you have the chance. More information can be found at the Athena Film Festival‘s website.

Tiffany’s Baking Co., which designed this wedding cake, described it as a combination of “gnomes, fairies, hobbits, vikings, and LOVE.” I don’t see any gnomes, fairies, Hobbits, or vikings, but it’s still a really gorgeous cake. (via That’s Nerdalicious!)

  • There’s a Twitter account called @AvoidComments that tweets daily reminders to… wait for it… “not read the comments sections for, well, pretty much anything, ever.” (via A.V. Club)
  • Monopoly is inviting fans (or people who are bored at work, let’s be honest) to vote out one of their classic game tokens and decide on its replacement via their Facebook page. The token with the lowest number of votes will be ditched to make way for a toy robot, helicopter, cat, guitar, or diamond ring. (via USA Today)

Julia Lepetit and Andrew Bridgman have created a graph illustrating “How Much We Care About Star Wars, Over Time.” Check out the whole thing at Dorkly. (via Geeks Are Sexy)

    No female characters on the Marvel phone cases lineup?

    There’s pretty much no chance that anything is gonna win but the cat. Seriously. It’s adorable.

    Just FYI: Some of the cases are currently available on Fab.com. (For iPhone 4/4S only, sadly.)

    Interesting that the female characters all look spunky and chipper, and the boys all look menacing.

    Yeah, the men have at least 2 different Poses, while ALL the women have ONE. They Couldn’t even let Harley more Menacing?
