Delirious Nendoroid Deadpool Figure

These Nendoroid Deadpool figures are too cute to be taken seriously (until the Merc with the Mouth actually stabs you in the eye or chops off your head. Then it’s not so funny).

Record Breaking Arkham Batman Cosplay

Julian Checkley Batman cosplay

Julian Checkley has set the Batman cosplay bar pretty high with his history-making, Arkham-inspired Dark Knight armour. He’s now part of the Guinness Book of World Records for having the greatest amount of working gadgets (23 in all) on a cosplay suit. Personally, I question the legitimacy of the Bat-Flask as an actual gadget (to my recollection, the Caped Crusader never drank on the job. Then again, maybe he should).

Superman Concept Art for Genndy Tartakovsky Short

Genndy-Tartakovsky-Superman-short

Many projects never see the light of day. The reasons for this and the merits of these unproduced works may vary, but there are times when we are made aware of a concept that is so exciting that it’s absence makes the world a little sadder.

One of these forgotten endeavors is a cancelled Superman animated short film by Genndy Tartakovsky (of Samurai Jack and The Powerpuff Girls fame) for DC Nation, which included beautiful background artwork by artist Scott Wills.

There have been many representations of this iconic superhero, most memorably (to me, at least) in the Max Fleischer cartoons, and as interpreted by Christopher Reeve (he made me believe a man can fly). I like to think that this unrealized animated adventure could have been a worthy addition to this list. Sadly, we will never know.
