The Avengers Movie - Captain America

Captain America (Avengers Movie Version)

Well, fortunately for me, there are plenty of early photos out there of Captain America's new look for the upcoming Avengers movie.

My initial reaction is that I prefer the original Captain America movie costume to this new one. I like the grittier, rougher, workman-like look of that suit as opposed to the tighter, somewhat over-produced Hollywood-esque costume we look to be getting for the Avengers film. Of course however, I'm willing to wait and see this one on screen in context before I make a firm judgement.

Here's hoping it's a good flick!

Doctor Who - the 5th!

The 5th Doctor (Peter Davison)


Don't worry Whovians, I haven't forgotten about you! With the Doctor Who Christmas special almost upon us, I figured it would be a good time to get out there with another one of the Doctors - This time, Peter Davison's 5th Doctor. He's a favorite Doctor to many - I mean, how can you not respect a man confident enough to wear a vegetable on his lapel?

Anyway, enjoy the DW special this weekend Whovians!

Before you waltz off though, check out some cool Who-Punx inspired stuff by some SP fans. First is a fun piece by Mike;
Also is a great "Dawgs" version of Capt. Jack from Noel at
It's A Dawg's Life;

My introduction to the Tick was the fantastically hilarious Tick Animated Series. It was just so outrageously bizarre, what with it's crazy dialogue and villains inspired by household objects or farm animals. The live-action show was even enjoyable for what it was, albeit short lived.

DCnU Wonder Woman

DCnU Wonder Woman

Originally in the promotional material, the Wonder Woman of the New 52 had covered legs. Eventually as the date came closer, more material surfaced with Wondy no longer sporting pants, but back to her shorts. I'm not sure why they did this, but my guess is that they wanted to update the costume, but decided to keep a look that was close enough to the "archetypal look" of Wonder Woman that the public at large associates her with.

The Archie Gang - Betty Cooper!

Betty Cooper

Betty is the girl I always envisioned Archie ultimately ending up with if he were to allowed age and all that.
What do you all think?

On another note, some friends from "down under" at Pathtags sent me this awesome metal tag featuring one of the Doctor Who Angel Punx from this blog! Wow, thanks guys! They use Pathtags as little rewards for people when they are geocaching. If you've never geocached, it's pretty neat, you should look in to it!
 Anyway, check it out -
