The story so far: “Incursions” are happening across the multiverse, where two Earths from different realities will occupy the same space and collide. Upon collision, both universes are destroyed. The only way to prevent that, each time there’s an incursion, is to blow up one of the Earths before they properly collide.

'Aren’t most superhero comics basically pornography with fight scenes instead of sex scenes (with the knockout punch acting as the cum shot)? Aren’t superheroes usually depicted visually as naked human figures with lines drawn onto them and colored as costumes? I think I remember Frank Miller once saying that, in his first run on Daredevil, the scenes where Elektra and Daredevil would fight were basically the two of them consummating their relationship. That’s the way superheroes do it.'People were unconvinced by Joe Casey, but I do think the premise makes sense. It’s a shame that Sex is so didactic and asexual, but it got me thinking about why and how sex and violence are linked in superhero fights. 
Note: there’s nothing explicit in these scans, and I don’t bring up outright sexual assault, but the confluence of sex and violence can get pretty uncomfortable and misogynistic at points, so fair warning.

Some very nice views of the new book The Secret History of Marvel Comics by Blake Bell and Dr. Michael J. Vassallo, juxtaposed with a lovely model and “Guns of Brixton,” because… well, why not, we suppose?

I love that they are all in the Scribblenauts game. It hit me surprisingly hard to see the Aerie Two and the Boppers in the first few minutes of gameplay.

If you wonder just how popular the Lynda Carter show made Wonder Woman here’s some evidence. Thirty three years ago Ben Cooper saw her at the level of Spider-Man and Batman when it came to promoting Halloween Costumes.
