Things We Saw Today

Well this certainly would have made things interesting. Comics Alliance showcased as series of artwork from Alex Tuis depicting some interesting personal casting choices for Marvel superhero roles. Among them: Bruce Lee as Spider-Man, Naomi Harris as Storm, and Rutger Hauer as Thor. Now take a gander as what else we saw today.

Oh, Valve, we adore you. You’ve added a Portal Space Core mod to Skyrim. Watch the video to find out where to locate it, or if you just want to see the little sphere, the action happens just under a minute in. (via Rock Paper Shotgun)

  • Lastly today, Ghost Rider creator Gary Friedrich is in some serious legal trouble with Marvel after a long battle over rights. The latest suit was over unauthorized sale of Ghost Rider posters, shirts, and cards Friedrich was selling online and at conventions. He’s been ordered to pay the company $17,000, which he doesn’t have, and told not to say what he created. Well now, creator Steve Niles has taken it upon himself to assist Friedrich with his financial problems by organizing a spot for folks to donate if they are so inclined. The money will go towards food and keeping Friedrich and his wife in their home. You can read more about the entire situation here.
