Thinking 4th Dimensionally: Back to the Future

 

The world  may have waited 30 years only to find out that we don't have hover cars, dog walking drones, or fully-functional hoverboards (thanks a lot, Father Time!), but that doesn't mean we can't think 4th Dimensionally. Here today, just over a week away from October 21, 2015 - the day when Marty McFly, Jennifer Parker and Doc Brown famously ventured into the future in Back to the Future Part II - we have the distinct pleasure of seeing beyond our past to take stock of our "future".

 

In the spirit of exploring the delecate fabric of the space-time continuum, we bring you three cross-sections of time from the Back to the Future trilogy. And quite literally, we've pulled apart the threads to explore the principle costumes worn by Marty McFly, Doc Brown, and Biff Tannen throughout 1985, 1955, 2015, and 1985. Cosplayers delight - this is your source for finding the Back to the Future costume that no one else thought of for Halloween 2015! Enjoy the ride.

Minnie-Mouse-Header.jpg

 

Minnie Mouse, lesser known as Minerva Mouse, has been on the Disney scene since 1928. Walt Disney and Ub lwerks needed a replacement for Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and their new star Mickey Mouse wasn’t enough to fill that void all by himself, so it was determined he needed a love interest. It is never clear whether Mickey and Minnie are dating, married, or if he is just trying to win her affection, but their relationship changed throughout the decades. Her role opposite Mickey has also wavered from an independent woman, to a damsel in distress, and back to a stronger female character in later years as she became increasingly popular.

 

Early on, Minnie was designed like a typical 1920s fashionista. She had her flapper dress, patched knickers, black stockings, and her over-sized heels. We can’t forget her iconic bowler hat with the flower! Minnie doesn’t quite look like that today, and she has had an assortment of physical changes to accompany the changing styles. In fact, since Minnie has been drawn in comics, appears in animated shorts, television shows, and so much more, she has been estimated to have over a hundred outfits! That’s every girl’s dream! You can see the most major changes below, in our style evolution infographic of Miss Minnie Mouse!

Batman’s Rogues Gallery ranged from common criminals to supervillains and criminal masterminds like the Joker. In this infographic, we catalogued the first comic book appearance of every Rogues Gallery villain, and also highlighted some of the more iconic supervillains.

Jason Voorhees Infographic Header

 

You can't mention Friday the 13th without thinking of Jason Voorhees, the legendary killer whose origins began at Camp Crystal Lake 35 years ago. The first film in the franchise opened on May 9th, 1980 and told the story of a group of camp counselors who were being stalked and killed during the re-opening of Camp Crystal Lake. Of course, the killer turned out to be Pamela Voohees (sorry, statute of limitations on spoilers expired for this film), who was seeking revenge after her son, Jason, drowned at camp years earlier. Once Pamela was killed, Jason emerged from the lake to pick up right where she left off at Camp Crystal Lake. Through the years, Jason Voohees has been to many other places like Manhattan, outer space, and even hell. While his heart will always be at Camp, let's take a look through all 12 Friday the 13th films to learn more about the machete-weilding killer.

Evolution of the Flash

 

Season three of the C.W.’s hit show Arrow introduced many to Barry Allen, a forensic scientist from a little town called Central City. Barry Allen is known to many as the Flash, the Fastest Man Alive, a founding member of the Justice League, and the first official superhero of a time known as the Silver Age of Comics. The title of the Flash has been held by more than just Barry; Jay Garrick, Wally West, and Bart Allen have all held the title of Scarlet Speedster throughout DC’s long history.

 

The Flash’s iconic red jumpsuit has not changed all that much in his history, even when other characters like Wally West or Bart Allen took up the mantle. The Flash’s look has stayed true to that original look developed by Carmine Infantino. Since his creation, the Flash has been featured in television, cartoons, video games, and comics—each medium giving him their own unique flair. Explore how the Scarlet Speedster has changed in his 75 year history with this infographic!
