‘Wolverine: Top Secret’ Takes That Lovable Grump To The Prom

animated wolverine

In 1994, X-Men: The Animated Series was still going strong, and X-Men comics were buoyant. Things were going pretty poorly for Wolverine on both counts; season three of the cartoon began with his delicate ex returning as Lady Deathstrike and moved quickly into the Phoenix Saga, whilst March brought the wedding of Scott and Jean into the pages of X-Men. That poor sad gravelly muscle beast! Marvel took pity on him, I suppose, and farmed out publication of Francine Hughes’ Wolverine: Top Secret. It’s a novel. It’s for young readers. The first chapter is called Chapter 1: The Prom.

The Fantastic Four Nativity Scene (and other Nerd Nativities)


The Thanksgiving holiday is now behind us, and you know what that means: the stoplight for Christmas insanity has officially turned green, and now every department store, television ad, and song you hear at Starbucks will be unrelentingly focused on our favorite annual holiday of economic consumption and good cheer.

We'd like to start out the new season with our tongues firmly in cheek, thanks to these Not-Right Nativity scenes for sale on Etsy. Our personal favorite, below, features Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman as Mary and Joseph, the Thing as a shepherd doing one-handed curls with a sheep, the Human Torch and Silver Surfer as Wise Men, and presumably Franklin Richards as everyone's personal savior.

This ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Hardee’s Ad Is The Worst Thing Mystique Has Ever Been Involved With [Video]

X-Men themed Hardee's ad

Folks, I have seen some dumb things involving the X-Men in my time. It is, in fact, my actual job is to see dumb things involving the X-Men on a fairly regular basis, and I have also seen more than my share of terrible ads over the years. This new ad from Hardee's and Carl's Jr. that makes an attempt to promote their Western X-Tra Bacon Burger, however, might just be the new gold standard for idiocy.

See, shapeshifter Mystique (not played by Rebecca Romijn or Jennifer Lawrence, mind you) is going to eat this burger, but it's just too much burger for a li'l lady to handle, so she turns into some scruffy bro because only men can fully enjoy the taste of fast food bacon. Seriously. That is what this ad is about.

We Are The Law: America Petitions White House For ‘Judge Dredd’ Style Law Enforcement

Man Allegedly Attacks Roommate And Mother With Fake Wolverine Claws


Just say, for example, you happen to have a set of replica Wolverine claws in your possession. Do you (a) keep them in a place of prized possession, admiring them from afar except for the occasional use during cosplay every now and again, or (b) use them against a roommate, who also happens to be dating your mother...

Stan Lee Swings, Cracks Wise In New ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Video Game Trailer [Video]


For those who thought that the idea of Activision and Beenox's upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man video game featuring a playable Stan Lee (for those who preorder the game through Amazon) was some kind of belated April Fool's joke, we now have dizzying proof otherwise: A video showing the 89-year old comic creator demonstrating the agility and fighting skills that a man half his age -- Hell, a quarter of his age -- would risk a radioactive/genetically modified spider bite to be able to pull off...

Parting Shot: The Full-Figured Amanda Waller Now Skinny in DC Comics Relaunch WTF


In the newly released Suicide Squad #1, out today, you might notice something very different about the Squad's tough-as-nails leader Amanda Waller: Formerly one of the rarest breeds in the DC Universe -- a full-figured lady -- "The Wall" has apparently transformed into "The Rail," adopting the same interchangeable hourglass figure and 22-inch waist as pretty much every other superheroine...

Parting Shot: The Cheesecake Hypocrisy of the Newspaper That Called R. Crumb ‘Smutty’


This screenshot from the newspaper that decried Robert Crumb as a "sex pervert" and his art as "smutty" -- prompting the cancellation of his trip to the Graphic Festival in Sydney, Australia -- leaves us wondering when we can expect a similarly outraged, alarmist op-ed from author Jesse Phillips about the smutty, perverted news coverage of The Daily Telegraph...
