Since arriving in the mainstream Marvel Universe following Secret Wars, Old Man Logan has taken on a life of his own as a standout solo star, and his adventures beyond the original eight issues have been expanded upon in great detail.

However, what a lot of people forget is that Mark Millar actually wrote a sequel to "Old Man Logan" at the same time as he was writing the original, as part of an experimental attempt to link his work-for-hire superhero comics with his own creator-owned franchises.

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.

In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

Matthew Vaughn Teases Hit Girl Prequel, Possible ‘Kick-Ass 3,’ If You’re Into That

Lionsgate

First of all, let’s not take this news too seriously — Matthew Vaughn has been known to set his sights on projects only to abandon them when he loses interest, and he’s also never directed a sequel to one of his own films before. That may change soon, as Vaughn is currently writing a Kingsman sequel, which he’d also like to direct. And since he’s got sequels on the brain, he’s also revealed some other potential plans. The keyword here being “potential.”

‘Kick-Ass’ Director Matthew Vaughn Says Audiences “Have Had Enough” of Dark Superhero Movies

Kick-Ass Chloe Moretz
Lionsgate

As ‘Batman’ goes, so goes comic-book movies. When Tim Burton turned the Dark Knight into a retro-gothic hero, Hollywood followed suit with a slew of heavily stylized pulp throwbacks. (See: ‘Dick Tracy,’ ‘The Phantom,’ ‘The Shadow,’ etc.) And when Christopher Nolan turned the Dark Knight into, well, ‘The Dark Knight,’ it sparked a wave of “grim and gritty” movies, with serious superheroes doing and saying serious things in outrageous spandex costumes that had been reimagined as biker gear or body armor. (See: ‘Man of Steel’ [Or maybe don’t.]) There’s been some pushback, but we’re really only now coming out of the trend toward ultra-serious, uber-dark comic-book movies.

Josh Ln’s ‘Hero-Glyphics’ Take Pop Culture Back To Ancient Egypt With The Avengers, The X-Men And More

Heroglyphics by Josh Ln

When you think about ancient Egyptian superheroes, there aren't a whole lot that come to mind. Apocalypse was around back then, right? And presumably there was some version of Moon Knight running around before the Fist of Khonshu was a dude who hung out with a French helicopter pilot, but really, that's all that comes to mind off the top of my head. But what if... what if... there were more?

That is the question that artist Josh Ln has answered in a series of prints called "Hero-Glyphics" that he "excavated and restored," presumably from a pyramid that was just full of pitfalls and tripwires connected to poison arrows. Check 'em bout below to see hieroglyphic-style reimaginings of some of our favorite characters! And also Kick Ass.
