Many moons ago we brought you a Top 5 list of our favorite costumes across various mediums. This time Biff and Martian Luthor Kang revisited the idea with a keen eye and a finer toothed comb.
5) Iron Man Armor (MK III)
Iron Man’s well known red and gold armor is a masterwork of sleekness and simplicity, but it never stood out to me. Maybe because it has existed for the entire time I’ve been alive. Yet when I dove back and saw him for the first time with that armor and the oh-so 1960’s horns on it, I knew I was looking at something special. Designed by the legendary Steve Ditko the horned look didn’t stick around long, but man do I wish it did.
Bonus: The original giant silver armor (MK I) and the original giant gold armor (MK II)
I completely get why these were redesigned especially since they seem so incredibly bulky, but I just love that vintage 1960’s Sci-Fi B-Movie look.
Oh hello, Internet, I didn’t see you come in. How does this morning find you? That’s good to hear… oh, I’m doing quite well, thanks for asking. I recently acquired a new piece of art. No, I didn’t visit that gallery exhibition downtown, although I hear they had some delightful pieces; This was a work I commissioned from two of our generation’s greatest masters: Biff Tannen and Arthur Harkness. You may recall that in the past I have tasked them with recreating some of my favorite nerd culture images, yes? This one is almost undeniably the finest of those works. Here is the classic, (if amateurishly illustrated) original.
Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come. After a long period of waiting and sitting in such rabid anticipation, the new season of Doctor Who is just a week away, and us Geeks are having a hard time not freezing ourselves in an avalanche to avoid having to wait. Unfortunately, most of us would die ( I, of course, am immortal so I don’t have to worry about that) so we have graciously and humbly decided to just deal with the wait, and sit patiently until the hour finally arrives.
We have already been made privy to a slight taste of what is to come this season in terms of returning villains and characters, but we have also been made aware that this season is going to be darker than previous ones. The only thing I can say about that….is a resounding YESSSSSSS. We are going to get Daleks, we are going to get Cybermen, and we are going to get dinosaurs messing things up, and I can only hope that its just as good as Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. I personally have been trying to steer clear of teasers and info snippets because I don’t want to get overexcited, but with the return of past villains, it sort of got my mind working.
We all know the TARDIS is capable of going through time and space, but sometimes, on rare occasions, it can cross over into other dimensions. This, I feel has been sorely underutilized, but I understand it is for good reason as that could easily bring the series into a different direction that would not be very much in line with the series’ roots. However, it doesn’t stop one from thinking what would and could happen if the Doctor crossed over into other dimensions and universes. After much thinking, I came up with 2 lists of 3 situations. Now before you start, let it be known that these are things that will never happen or appear on Doctor Who….mainly because the world is not yet awesome enough to have it happen. So with that out of the way, let us get on with it. Also, there may be some recurring things from a specific universe that I would love the Doctor to have a hand in, and that is the Dark Tower universe…..deal with it jerks.
COMPANIONS: The Doctor’s companions are usually a huge part of the series. Along the way though, he does meet some people who are not actual companions, but more akin to one episode friends who either impact his life or impact ours in some way. If I had my way, the Doctor would most definitely cross paths with these people.

Hey Fellow Nerds!
The folks at IGN have given us a treat a few days before Halloween in the form of the Justice League: War trailer that you can check out below. War is the first movie since The Flashpoint Paradox and as Greekimus and I discussed in our podcast, this movie is set in the current New 52 Universe.
Justice League: War is being directed by Jay Oliva and produced by James Tucker and uses the voice talents of Jason O’Mara, Christopher Gorham, Alan Tudyk, Michelle Monaghan, Shemar Moore and Sean Astin.
Happy Weekend Evil Geeks!
DC just wrapped up their Trinity War storyline that pitted the various Justice League teams against each other to bring us into their villains month and then the much anticipated Forever Evil event! Rather than being spoon-fed issue by issue I decided to gulp down the six issue storyline all in one go and was pretty much satisfied with the entire thing. There were some moments throughout the read that really stood out to me, but the best ones were in the final issue of the arc in Justice League #23 drawn by the amazing Ivan Reis! The story is cool because it starts off with justice Leagues vs. Justice Leagues, but then the teams begin to fracture and they mix up a little along the way. I’ve pulled a few panels for you to check out. Not gonna lie…they’re pretty awesome. Enjoy!!!

In what I felt was somewhat a controversial move, DC canned Legion of Super Heroes last month. Don’t get me wrong, I understand because I’ve even shared with my boy Kang that I’ve always wanted to be into the Legion, but just couldn’t get find my way with them. I like the characters, in fact I like them a lot, but just couldn’t get hooked despite trying multiple times. Anyway, DC has announced that it’s replacing the title with Justice League 3000! The title will include new takes on Batman, Supes, Wonder Woman, GL, and The Flash!
