Marvel Comics announced this week an ambitious and comprehensive plan to reintroduce its Ultimate Comics line to new readers and lapsed fans. Once known for its high profile creators and truly epic and unpredictable storylines, the fever around the Ultimate line has cooled in recent years. Marvel's aim is to re
If you haven't heard about the Obama "birther" controversy, then congratulations, because it's colossally stupid: A fringe group of conservatives are insisting that President Obama was born abroad, is not a U.S. citizen and therefore cannot be president. It's a hard point to argue since Obama has publicly released his birth
