On the upside, we got to snark a lot. On the downside... everything.
We try to see the positive in all situations around here at TMS, but occasionally, some things happen in fandom that we just have to call out. 2014 had a series of moments in which it didn't feel super-awesome to be a female fan of things like comics, cosplay, and video games, so let's take a look at the whole horrible list.Read More

Things We Saw Today
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.
