I definitely had my girlfriend watch the 3 - minute expert on Bane after we saw TDKR. I love how those videos start out fairly calm but eventually reveal how nuts comics continuity is.

Definitely happy to see the Superman article regarding how to make him cool again was the number one news article for the week. Shows to me that people wanna see the Man of Steel get his pizzazz back.

Edited by hyenascar

I love small articles like this because it cuts to the heart of our social psychology. At least within this community. People can say what they want, but like a demographic survey this shows what we are passionate about. And apparently its a romantic story between batman and spider-man.

For all the hate people want to throw at deadpool at times, apparently he ticks the box as far as the general curiosities go.

Posted by G-Man

@hyenascar: Exactly. It's no surprise they're making a DP video game.

@ChernobylCow: As much as I love comics, there are so many times I start cracking up during these shoots at the absurdity of it. Reading it is one thing. Trying to say it in front of a camera seriously is another.

Posted by hyenascar

yeah I'm cautiously excited. Software company trying to cash in on a hot product, or fans of deadpool trying to give him his due. Discuss amongst yourselves.

Posted by Man of Lengend

still surprised that deadpool kills the marvel universe got a lame review .... It was good!!!!

Posted by Barkley

WW will battle her way up top

Posted by BATinc

Batman = Best

Posted by Grey56

Remember when Wizard featured an article over top superheroes of the month ? Glad that this method actually uses site hits to justify that standing. It's also amusing that despite all the hate the capes get - they still drive the train and rightfully so. Thanks for the article, G-Man.

No doubt and if people aren't buying the current run of WW they are crazy. It should be on everyone's list. Fine comic.

Posted by CMSAM - my new blog entry is about how DC can top Marvel in the movie bizz. Please read and feel free to leave comments if you like :-) other entries on there involve my thoughts on how Justice League should be made, my review-ish of The Dark Knight Rises, how DC and Marvel can make their comics more accessible to new comers and in turn gain new readers, my thoughts on Arrow and some sport stuff. Have fun!
