The Avengers Panel [Video]

We can’t all be at Comic Con.  I mean, think of the overcrowding!  And so for all of us who graciously refrained from attending so that everyone else might be more comfortable, here’s the footage of the Marvel Studio’s panel, where the entire cast of The Avengers debuted with their director, Joss Whedon.

Let the poster photoshopping begin!

If you’re wondering why Robert Downey, Jr. asked everyone to refrain from stabbing anyone, it’s because some dude stabbed another dude at Comic Con yesterday.

No one is quite sure what caused the incident, but the man was arrested for “assault with a deadly weapon” while the victim was taken away by paramedics to have “a minor cut on or near his eyelid” treated.  The weapon was a pen.  Wired has the official take on things, while Geeks of Doom has a more eye-witness account.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
