The Inhumans are hybrid alien/humans with special powers and in short, Marvel doesn't have the rights to X-Men. But I'll be tuning in just to see if they can pull off Medusa's prehensile super-hair.Read More
Separation of church and state, Darth.
Listen, I know the rebels at the end of Rogue One were trying their best, but some high school kids just put them to shame. When Darth Vader showed up at Ashwaubenon High School, their evacuation turned out a lot better than that hallway scene—though the absence of Force powers may have worked in their favor.Read More

Quirk Books Staged a Preview of William Shakespeare’s Star Wars On The Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Steps
Did everyone have a lovely Star Wars Day yesterday? Our friends at Quirk Books celebrated May the Fourth with a flash mob preview of their upcoming release William Shakespeare's Star Wars, which as you can probably guess, is a version of Star Wars written in the style of William Shakespeare. The audio in the video isn't great, but they've subtitled it to get the full emotion of Obi-Wan's final battle with Darth Vader across.Read More
Yesterday was Star Wars Day, and everyone tried to ride the wave of "May The Fourth Be With You," but some did it better than others. Surprisingly, geeky space heart-throb Chris Hadfield misquoted Master Yoda's most famous line in a tweet.

A factoid in honor of Star Wars day, which is today ('May the Fourth be with you'): The Internet memelet 'do not want' has its origins in a Chinese bootleg version of Star Wars Episode III. Not LOLcats.
When used as an interjection, No! is often said as 不要 (literally, "do not want" or "do not"). The now-infamous bootleg version of Star Wars Episode III, poorly translated from Chinese to English, translated Darth Vader's cry of "Noooooooo" (不要) as "Do not want"; this translation error became an internet meme.
