The 1983 X-Men Coloring Book Is A Lost Psychedelic Masterpiece

When famous science fiction heroes make the jump to children's coloring books, usually the characters' dignity is jettisoned in the process. But such was not the case with the 1983 Uncanny X-Men Super Activity Book. Indeed, this unheralded tome — in which Magneto builds a frightening "Alphabet Beast" — may very well be » 9/26/12 12:25pm 9/26/12 12:25pm

Arctic megastorm is so powerful it's turning the ice cap into "slush"

A massive storm has been lashing the Arctic, and its fury is so great that it's actually breaking up the remaining ice at the pole and whipping it into a substance that one scientist called "slushy." Over at the awesome DotEarth blog, Andrew Revkin has been keeping tabs on the storm, which is incredibly unusual for this … » 8/10/12 1:18pm 8/10/12 1:18pm

And now, a mural of Spider-Man, Wolverine, and The Hulk hanging out…

Behold, the mother lode of sex-swapped X-Men fan art

We've seen sex-swapped incarnations of the X-Men before, but Deviant Artist Timberoo is devoted to giving almost every X-Men — no matter how obscure — the Victor Victoria routine. Let's kick off these creative offerings with He-Dazzler, who I imagine would look a lot more like Cerrone or Giorgio Moroder in real life. » 10/26/11 3:45pm 10/26/11 3:45pm

Storm, Elektra, and Wonder Woman get body-painted for Rio de Janeiro's…

For the Cubango samba school parade for Rio's 2011 Carnaval, several nice young ladies donned painted-on superheroine outfits...which is more or less how they look in the comics. I also love how Elektra's music in this segment is the theme song to Electra Woman and Dyna Girl and Storm's theme is from Marvel vs. Capcom… » 3/07/11 7:50am 3/07/11 7:50am

The strangest Spider-Man public service announcements ever


Spider-Man's a stand-up guy, and he'll go to bat for almost any good cause. Unfortunately, the fact that he's an arachno-sapien in a bodysuit transforms any serious attempt at advocacy into a perplexing tableau. Here are 10 odd Spider-PSAs. » 10/17/10 8:45pm 10/17/10 8:45pm
