Wanted

The Sad History of Image Comics Video Games
Comic books and video games go together like pork chops and applesauce. Video games make the perfect playground for characters with abilities that are larger than life, and over the years we've been graced with a number of strong contenders for the best comic book video game. But like most creative ventures, not every swing results in a hit. Despite not being around nearly as long as Marvel or DC, Image has had its fair share of video games based on the properties it's published. While lately the Image Comics gaming universe has had a string of successes with the likes of The Walking Dead from Telltale Games and The Darkness from Starbreeze, the going wasn't always this good. In fact, at times, it was downright discouraging.
The Superpoll Round IV: Prattworld vs. Evansworld
Chris Evans and Chris Pratt have made a bet on the outcome of this weekend's Super Bowl that will see one of them show up at the other's choice of children's hospital or hospice in their Marvel superhero costume brandishing their rival's team colors. Either Captain America will carry the flag of Pratt's Seattle Seahawks, or Star-Lord will don the jersey of Evans's New England Patriots. We couldn't let this titanic tussle between two of Marvel's super-Chrisses pass by without a contest of our own, so we're pitting the worlds of Star-Lord and Captain America head-to-head in a series of polls that we call... the Superpoll. Round three saw Avengers take on Guardians, and it looked like it might go either way, but at the time of this writing the Guardians could dominate two of the five contests thanks to Groot and Rocket Raccoon, while the Avengers are pulling ahead in three thanks to Black Widow, Hulk, and Hawkeye -- who has astonishingly pulled off an upset against a troll doll. But everything could still change, as today we explore the cinematic worlds and nerdy careers of Chris Pratt and Chris Evans. Welcome to the Superpoll: Round III.
