Superhero Tan Lines

Superhero Tan Lines

Today marks the first official day of Summer, and the longest day of the year, so make sure you wear plenty of sun cream, or you’ll end up like these iconic DC superheroes – can you guess which one is which?

See Mike Draws shows us what happens when you wear your costume out in the sun – though I can’t imagine Batman or Robin get too many tan lines since they mainly fight crime at night.

Villains Need Love Too

If you’re struggling through Monday as much as I am, you might appreciate these illustrations by artist Nacho Diaz – they’ve certainly made my week a hell of a lot better. Depicting heroes hugging their evil counterpart / misunderstood frenemies – depending on which way your moral compass points, these pictures are beyond cute.

Diaz’s collection is aptly named Villains need love too, and include the likes of Batman and the Joker, Harry and Voldemort, Han Solo and Jabba, and my favourite – Deadpool and.. Deadpool. You can see my favourites below, but if you need more cute in your life, check the rest out here. Which one’s your favourite?

Justice League Teasers

Get ready guys – DC are releasing the first theatrical trailer for the upcoming Justice League movie later today. Who else is stoked? I’m probably one of the few people who prefer DC to Marvel, and even though Batman V Superman didn’t quite meet my expectations, I’m still super excited to see the whole team together in one movie.

To tide us over, Warner Bros have kindly offered up some teasers for each of the main characters. That includes Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Cyborg – there isn’t one for Superman as of yet.

Check them all out below, along with some character posters. Who are you looking forward to seeing the most?


Here we get a quick peak at Arthur Curry, aka. Aquaman – played by Jason Momoa. The teaser shows snippets of Aquaman facing waves, being handed the Trident of Neptune, and most excitedly, using the trident – which is a magical weapon that gives its wielder divine power over the sea. There’s also a rather dramatic shot of the whole team, minus Superman.


We already got quite familiar with Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne in Batman V Superman, so this teaser isn’t really showing us anything new. We do however get a quick look at the parademons – those flying human wasp things from BvS – as the Batmobile blasts them from the sky. It seems we’ll be finding out a little bit more about these creatures in Justice League.


Ezra Miller plays Barry Allen in this teaser. The best thing by far is getting to see The Flash show off his lightning bolt speed, but we also get a close up of his costume whilst he prepares for battle, and a glimpse of a casual looking Allen in his apartment. We got quite a good look at The Flash in Suicide Squad last year but it’s still nice to see more of him.


This was the longest teaser out of all of them. At first we see Diana Prince examining a massive statue, we then catch a glimpse of her entering a hanger holding a huge carrier – presumably the Flying Fox. In the third snippet, Gal Gadot is dressed in her Wonder Woman garb, and finally we see her protecting herself from some sort of blast with her cuffs. I cannot wait for the Wonder Woman movie.


I probably know least about Cyborg out of all the Justice League members, so this teaser has been the most exciting one for me. Ray Fisher plays Cyborg in this clip, where we get to see him before and after the accident that turns him into alter ego Cyborg – who looks incredible. Check out those arm cannons. He literally blasts a piece of falling building to smithereens.

Batman v Superman Pop! Vinyls

The one movie I’ve been looking forward to watching in 2016, above any other, is Batman v Superman. I don’t think it will be the greatest movie in the world, but I LOVE Batman and everything he stands for, so no matter what the movie is like, I HAVE to watch it, and I already know I’ll love it.

I’m preparing my pockets for the inevitably huge array of merchandise coming to tie in with the film, and already know what my first purchase will be – a new Batman Pop! Vinyl to add to my collection. Funko have just released images of their Batman v Superman Pop! Vinyl collection, and they are perfect.

The collection includes Batman, Knightmare Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Superman, and a Superman Soldier. Knightmare Batman has gone straight to the top of my want list. He looks steampunkly badass with his clenched fists, trench coat and goggles. I’m also in love with their Aquaman. The detail on this pop is incredible; all of his tattoos are there. Funko have even added Jason Mamoa’s iconic missing chunk of eyebrow.

I can’t find a specific date detailing when they will be available, but January 2016 is listed so I expect soon. You can pre-order now from Entertainment Earth.


Five Fictional Vehicles I’d Love to Travel in

This week’s Fandom Friday looks at the fictional vehicles you can only fantasise about taking for a spin; the cars of your dreams, and the spaceships of your nightmares. Check out my top five favourite vehicles below.



I like my cars fast and indestructible, and if Batman’s in the passenger seat, well that’s even better. Batmobile, you are my dream car! I love every version I’ve ever laid my eyes on, and would gladly ride them all, but my absolute favourite has to be the Tumbler from the Dark Knight movies. It has machine guns and a rocket launcher, explosive mines and a jet engine. It’s heavily armoured, looks freaking awesome, and even transforms into a motorcycle if you need a speedier getaway.



Who wouldn’t want to drive around in a car that can transform into a giant alien robot at any second? There is no doubt in my mind that Bumblebee would be the loveliest car around. He’s friendly, funny and would protect you from anything. You don’t even have to go through the hassle of steering the car yourself because he’ll take control for you, and do a better job at it x 100. Plus, he takes the form of a yellow Chevrolet Camaro – that is one sexy car right there.

Knight Bus


I’ve always liked the idea of taking a ride in the Knight Bus, ever since reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, but when I started working in London it became an obsessive daydream. I cannot express how handy that triple decker bus would be. It’s super-fast, so would get me to the office in no time, and it can shrink in size to get past all that pesky traffic. It even boasts a rather fantastic array of comfy looking beds so I can take a nap on the way home.

De Lorean


Because.. Time Travel! Yes, you could go back in time and change your past, blah blah blah, but why would you want to see something you’ve already seen. What I’d like to do is travel to the future to see all the crazy technology before anyone has even thought it up – the flying toast and egg robot, yum! Better yet, I’d go way WAY back and see dinosaurs and Egyptians and Walt Disney. I’d discover life’s greatest mysteries. The De Lorean – my personal history book.

Mario Kart


I’m a fan of semi-automatic weapons as much as the next guy, but you know what’s even better – Koopa Shells. Those bad boys are lethal. Driving a Mario Kart would be the epitome of fun; power up mushrooms that let you travel at the speed of light, disposable banana peels that make your opponents fly off the track. Even better than all of that – The Rainbow Road. Who hasn’t fantasised about driving along the trippiest road in video game history?

So what fictional vehicles do you yearn for? Would any of these make your list? Let me know in the comments below.

Batman and the TMNT Team-Up

DC Comics and IDW are joining forces to bring us one of the most epic comic book crossovers of all time; Batman meets Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The six part miniseries will be set in Gotham, where the TMNT, and their nemesis Shredder, have been transported interdimensionaly by Krang. As you’d expect, Batman and the turtles cross paths, which results in one mighty team-up. Batman villains better beware, because the TMNT are in town.

Batman Eternal creator, James Tynion IV, is set to write the series, whilst Freddie E. Williams II will contribute his artistic talent. TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman will provide variant covers.

The first issue is set to be released in November later this year.

Image of the day | Party on Wayne


What do you get when you put Darth Vader and Bruce Wayne (Batman) in a room together? Wayne’s World! This little graphic is brilliant, and combines not two.. but three of my favourite franchises, that’s why it’s my image of the day. Party on everybody!

You can find a few more funny Star Wars related images on the No Disintegrations site.

Image of the day | Batman is Daredevil

Heart melt activated..

J Salvador really knows how to mess with my heart. His Super Emo Friends collection is, well.. Super emo. This Batman / Daredevil illustration is one of his latest and it’s making my face scrunch up at how adorably soul crushing it is. Ben Affleck may make a better Batman, but we will never forget his Daredevil – probably not for the best reasons mind you.
