Are you ready to unite the league? Justice League is set to hit theaters and be one of the biggest movies of the season (that is, until a little movie called Star Wars: The Last Jedi comes out). Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman (maybe?) will be welcoming newcomers Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg to the team in a fight to save the world. The latest DC heroes team-up is the fifth in what has...

The Evolution of Thor [Infographic]

The Evolution of Thor

Marvel superhero Thor debuted in 1962, primarily the work of artist Jack Kirby, editor Stan Lee, and scripter (and Lee’s brother) Larry Lieber. While the original costume that they designed (blue armor, red cape, and silver winged helmet) is considered a classic at this point, it’s certainly not the only one Thor has worn over the past 55 years. In this infographic, we show how Thor’s appearance has evolved through many comic trends, while often calling back to archetypal features like his cape or winged helmet. We’ll also take a look at some other characters who were worthy of wielding Mjolnir, whether they were called by the name “Thor” (like Jane Foster) or simply gained his powers (Beta Ray Bill and Throg). So let’s cross the Bifrost Bridge into Asgard and see how Thor has evolved!

Spider-Man Homecoming DIY

Spider-Man first appeared in 1962 and has grown into one of the most popular superheroes. It’s no surprise that every year kids want to dress up as Spider-Man. With the recent release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, this year will not be any different. During the movie, Peter learns “If you’re nothing without that suit than you shouldn’t have it”. Having it taken away by Tony Stark, Peter then dons his old homemade Spider-Man suit. Who didn’t love that suit? That’s why we decided to make one ourselves.

This year, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hit theaters and did not disappoint. The follow up to the surprise summer hit of 2014 was an action-packed visual spectacle with even more of the fun character dynamics that were introduced in the first one. Every character had their chance to shine with some hilarious dialogue exchanges. Whether it was Rocket calling Star Lord “Star Munch”, Drax’s poor attempts at sympathy, or Baby Groot being...well...Baby Groot, the movie provided plenty of great quotes.

American Ninja Movies [Infographic]

American Ninja Movies

Ninjas are everywhere, you just can’t see them. They’re hidden, silently observing you and waiting for the perfect time to strike. In fact, studies have shown that there are more than a dozen ninjas, on average, in the room with you right now. Since there’s no escape, you might as well put on a ninja movie to pass the time. And we’ve got the perfect guide for you: a timeline of American Ninja movies from The Octagon through The Lego Ninjago Movie! Note that we went with a rather broad, pop culture definition of ninjas, and stuck to films that featured Americans as main ninja characters or were American-produced with significant plot points involving ninjas. With that qualification out of the way, let’s break out our guide to American Ninja movies!

Defenders Throwbacks: Then and Now

Defenders Then and Now

It's about to get a little crowded in Hell's Kitchen. The time has arrived for Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist to assemble as The Defenders premieres on Netflix this month. The show will follow the storyline from the end of Daredevil season 2, in which all of the characters finally cross paths to take down The Hand, an ancient organization that is (as you may have guessed) up to no good. If you've watched any of Marvel's shows on Netflix, you know that the personalities of these characters are not of those who work well in teams. Therefore, The Defenders is bound to offer some fun and intriguing character dynamics. In fact, we've already seen some of it in the trailer!  

Though this will be the first live action version of The Defenders; the group has existed in comics since 1971 when Doctor Strange recruited Namor and Hulk to form a team that eventually added others as well. This lineup may be an all-new team of Defenders, but they do each have their own history in comics. Most of the characters featured in the series were introduced in comic books more than 30 years ago, with the exception of Jessica Jones, whose first appearance in Alias #1 came in 2001. Jones also happens to be the one who most resembles her initial comic book appearance. Take a look below at our interactive images comparing the main four Defenders and several supporting characters to their original comic book...
