Fantastic Four Evolution Header

 

The Fantastic Four has been fighting crime in the Marvel Universe for over 50 years, ever since they first appeared in The Fantastic Four #1, all thanks to the super-duo creative team of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Countless comic issues, cartoons, and movies, have all been released since that first appearance, and, as expected, the quartet's costuming has changed quite a few times in these past decades. The newest movie, Fantastic Four, is out this July 2015, so we thought it would be a perfect time to pull together all of the group's looks in one infographic! This image shows 15 of the superheroes' notable outfits, and is narrated by the Invisible Woman herself, Sue Storm. We've also included an interactive slider at the top, so you can compare the Fantastic Four's look from 1961 to the actors from the 2015 film!

Ant-Man Evolution Header

There is a reason comic fans eagerly anticipate that first blurry shot of their favorite character’s costume after a cinematic adaptation is announced. True fans know that almost every comic book character in history has gone through numerous costume changes (except maybe the Hulk—tiny shorts and a bare green chest forever), and every fan wants to see their favorite character’s costume represented accurately on screen. Since comics are illustrated, turning hand-drawn ideas into tangible and realistic on-screen attire can be a challenge. Thankfully, though, it looks like the creative team behind the Ant-Man film has paged thoroughly through comic history and found the right mixture of both old and new for our favorite pin-sized superhero. As you "ant"icipate the film's release next Friday, enjoy reading up on Ant-Man's interesting evolution!

Harley Quinn Header.jpg

 

Dr. Harleen Quinzel, better known as Harley Quinn from the DC/Batman Universe, is the posterchild of a classic love story gone way wrong. And with a past that’s tangled and disturbing enough to give The Silence of the Lambs a run for its money, there’s no wonder why countless cosplayers and comic readers favor this unlikely antihero for their Comic-Con or Halloween costume. An ex-Gotham City University gymnast and ex-Arkham Asylum psychiatric intern turned murderous supervillainess, Harley Quinn hit the scene in the early ‘90s as an extra (an afterthought, really) on Batman: The Animated Series before evolving into a cautionary tale of what a “wicked attraction” can cost a girl in Gotham.

 

Sometimes funny, other times rather sad, Harley Quinn’s descent into madness is one riddled with makeovers, costume changes, and all around reimaginings that even the most devout comic enthusiasts may have missed along the way. So whether you are following the media frenzy surrounding 2016’s Suicide Squad or can’t stop playing the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham Knight, Harley Quinn’s sordid past is one trip into madness that fans can’t resist and neither can we! Track her beginning in 1992’s Batman: The Animated Series to countless appearances in solo comics, video games, and big titles like Suicide Squad, Gotham City Sirens, and the storylines from the New 52, as we follow the corpse riddled path of the Clown Prince of Crime’s first lady and puddin’ pop, Harley Quinn.

Suicide Squad Throwbacks

 

Is it just us or is the buzz surrounding Suicide Squad something extra-special? Sure, there have been a few examples of other movies creating this kind of excitement so far out from their release. But 2016’s highly anticipated anti-hero film seems like it's been hard to miss if you’ve even spent only a few minutes trolling the geekosphere in recent months. The attention around David Ayer's upcoming film, which is set in the DC Comics universe, started with the “leaked” images and a meme stampede in the wake of images of Jared Leto’s tattoo-laden Joker. That was quickly followed by an all-around collective gasp at the unveiling of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Then the rest of the star-studded cast, including the likes of Will Smith, Ben Affleck as Batman, and Cara Delevingne, just kept feeding the buzz and here we are today. Here to feed the beast some more!

GothamCitySirens_Header.jpg

 

In Greek mythology, sirens lure unwitting sailors to shipwreck through their beautiful singing. With a captivatingly deadly mix of danger and beauty, it’s no wonder comic book writer Paul Dini carried that mythology into the 2009 comic series Gotham City Sirens. Following the paths of an infamous fearsome threesome - Poison Ivy, Catwoman, and Harley Quinn - it not only showcases one of the best lineups of villainesses in comic history, it paints a rich and detailed picture of these seriously unforgettable characters.

Gotham City’s leading ladies have taken on many forms far beyond their appearances in Gotham City Sirens. Between countless portrayals in everything from video games and movies, to animated series, and every type of merchandise between here and Gotham City, can you read between the franchises and guess which Batman villainess each of these three minimalist posters...
