SUPERIOR THANKS FOR ASKING

We have are first look at Marvel's long rumored, new company-wide cross-over event, "Superior!" Artist Ed Quinby, sent us this diabolical twist on the theme, with Ant-Man's Arch Nemesis Egghead, switching places with THE WASP!

JIMMY OLSEN'S PENIS

Superman's red briefs won't be the only thing missing from a crotch in this years Man of Steel. Rumor has it Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen has been rewritten as "Jenny Olsen."

When reached for comment, Jimmy Olsen's penis seemed resolute. "I can't complain, some say I should. Shatner called, said they have this support group." But the long time sidekick's penis said he's not angry and won't be seeking the spotlight, "I wish them well, it's a tough industry to be in, and I've had a long run, I can't complain. Jimmy Olsen wasn't even in the original comics. They squeezed us in later, when they needed someone for Lois to talk to in sticky situations." I think it was in the radio show, or was it the cartoons, y'know Kryptonite was my idea..."

"Times were good, and I was happy for the work."

FOUL PLAY

The new Principal at a suburban Philadelphia pre-school has taken action against  children, whose “imaginary play” often ends up “causing injuries.”  New Principal Mr. Darkseid could not be reached for comment, but both Vice Principal Desaad, and Guidance Counselor, "Granny" Goodness, would only go on record to say the memo speaks for itself. (Memo pictured above, note the typo, way to go educators!)

ZOMBIES v TROLLS

Producers of the web series Zombieland, blame "hate" for the series failure. Zombieland based on the 2009 hit movie, was to be a web based series distributed by Amazon. Until hate reared it's ugly head.  "I'll never understand the vehement hate the pilot received from die-hard zombie fans," said producers via Twitter, "You guys successfully hated it out of existence."

This isn't the first show to fall victim to hate. Apparently, television networks have often used viewer preferences when deciding which shows to broadcast. Going so far as to develop advanced technology to allow them to study audience reaction to shows. Stalwartly refusing to broadcast shows with low likability.

HARPIES

Two identical twin sisters Camille and Kennerly, playing the theme from Star Trek TOS, while wearing Trek uniforms. Is it wrong I find this hysterical, and just a little hot? They also do Dr. Who, The Hobbit, Game of Thrones, some video game themes, Final Fantasy, Zelda, Blue Oyster Cult's Don't Fear The Reaper, The Rolling Stone's Paint in Black, Aerosmith's Dream on, AC/DC's Highway to Hell, Ghost Rider's in the Sky, Stairway to Heaven, Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, U2, Journey, Bon Jovi, Guns & Roses, and all in costumes and on location.
