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!

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!

Stephen King's Adaptations [Infographic]

There's no question that Stephen King is the one of the most prominent, influential horror authors ever. Since selling his first short story in 1967, Stephen King has been a publishing machine over the past 50 years. He's penned more than 50 novels and more than 200 short stories, with plenty of other written work in between. Over the years, King has even built his own fictional universe in connecting the worlds described in his work, many of them to The Dark Tower series along with several other characters and locations that either appear or are referenced in other stories.

Game of Karts

Winter is coming, and so are spoilers, so consider yourself warned if you’re not caught up with Game of Thrones.

The Evolution of Spider-Man

2017 Update: just in time for Spider-Man: Homecoming, we've updated our infographic to include post-2014 costumes. Don't call it a sequel, more like a soft reboot! The original blog introduction is below:

"Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can." Boy...that song is almost as iconic as Spider-Man himself! Even though the classic red suit with black webbing detail is the most...

Sentient Vehicles: 25 Cars, Trucks, Buses, Bikes, and Trains That Can Think On Their Own [Infographic]

Sentient Vehicles Header

The concept of a vehicle that can act on its own has been around for decades. Movies and TV shows have often featured these characters with varying degrees of sentience, from cars that can talk and sing and interact with humans to other vehicles who are portrayed merely as self-driving, with no other personality traits. With both Cars 3 and Transformers: The Last Knight in theaters this month, there was no better time than now to create this infographic which features 25 of our very favorite sentient vehicles, dating all the way back to 1941. We’ve included Lightning McQueen and Optimus Prime, of course, but we're also sure to mention some lesser-known vehicles, such as a vampire motorcycle and a murderous semi-truck.
