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.
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.
Just because President Obama won re-election last week, that doesn't mean that the apocalyptic horror world that Mitt Romney and various right-wing elements promised us were forthcoming won't actually happen
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? One Utah resident allegedly made the wrong choice, with horrific consequences.19-year-old Kristopher Ryan Huff
For those who thought that the idea of Activision and Beenox's upcoming TheAmazing Spider-Man video gamefeaturinga 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 sho
It's been a while since we've talked about one of our all-time favorite titles here at ComicsAlliance, and to be honest, the past few issues of Jim Balent's Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose have actually been pretty boring. As much as I love the bo
It is hard to know what to say about these incredibly strange live-action reenactments of handheld Pokemon video games. This video is definitely 13 minutes long, and involves a lot of what appear to be Japanese teenagers in their underwear, wearing creepy masks and throwing weird stuff at each other. It's kind of li
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. I guess because there ar
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.

Of all the Marvel characters you could pick to make it big in Hollywood, Dazzler, the roller-skating mutant disco diva, probably isn't all that high on the list. And yet, according to legendary editor Jim Shooter, there isn't just a time when that was a pretty likely possibility, it's also the entire reason she was created.
