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.

April 14th, 2015 will mark the next milestone in a 23 year journey of the iconic fighting game Mortal Kombat, with the release of Mortal Kombat X .
