Apparently, we can't just have one new Iron Man in Riri Williams. A "reformed" Doctor Doom will also be taking on the Iron Man mantle in a new title called Infamous Iron Man. According to Nerdist, “the greatest villain of the Marvel Universe will try something new. Where Tony Stark failed, Doom will succeed. What is Doom’s Master Plan?” I guess Marvel's really determined to have, like, a jillion people being each hero, huh?Read More

I've been loving Titan Comics' Doctor Who stories for both the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors - they sound just like the characters from the shows, they both feature female companions of color, and they're way more interesting than the actual current episodes of Who.

Not designer Drew Rummell, who sells his ware on Etsy under the name of DTEK Designs and at Glassman and Hanson Jewelry in Denver, Colorado.
