Didja Ever Want to Bitch Smack Superman?

July 16, 2012

Well, now you you can! DC premiered a new game called Injustice: Gods Among Us which is apparently a two person fighting game similar to the Mortal Kombat engine. Sweet. Here is are two things I’ve always wanted to do that this game would hopefully let me: A.) Be Wonder Woman and repeatedly bitch smack SuperMan- maybe even backhand him a few times. B.) Drive the Batmobile into the Flash- because the Flash always sounded like he’d be a dick. The folks over at IGN have posted 15 minutes of game play that looks like it would be a lot…

New Iron Man Armor- Makes Stark Look Like An Uncooked Chicken Nugget

So there was a lil’ media event called San Diego Comic Con this week. An event which none of us here at The Pig got to go to, nor could we really afford. That having been said we are just going to have to make the best of what the Internet saw. The folks at Marvel, bless their lil’ hearts- were nice enough to show us a display of all the Iron Man armor- including the new one. Frankly, it’s a good thing that I wasn’t there. I would have promptly felt up the crotch on the suit from Iron…

GirlDuality: Someone took all the released clips from the new Spider-man movie adn put them together for 25 minutes…which is like 18% of the film. I really don’t have to watch the movie now That’s pretty funny/ NLTAG: What happened? You’ve seen all the Dennis Leary footage already? GirlDuality: They managed to give you pretty detailed version of the whole film in 25 minutes of released footage Aside from that, it looks like more first person shooting then Doom 3. Wouldn’t have been good for my vertigo NLTAG:I guess. I’m kinda wary of the Peter’s parents storyline Pretty much every…

Yah Know What’s Messed Up?

This gets to me. I don’t know why. Check this out.   So there’s this superhero named Seaguy, and like his big problem is that there’s no need for superheroes anymore. All the villains are gone, all the crises¬† are over, and all the girls have been saved. He was just too late. He’s plucky though, and he lives out his idyllic life chugging on Xoo and watching Mickey Eye on TV.¬† He even has a side kick, Chubby da Choona. Here’s a picture of them playing chess with Death.   Everything is perfect until one day the Xoo jumps…

This one actually happened as a result of my most recent post. GirlDuality: name the most unrealistic looking female comic book character you’ve ever seen NLTAG: hm Unrealistic in what way? GirlDuality: Like Starfire, for example or Power Girl NLTAG: You mean physically? GirlDuality: Yup NLTAG: and here I was gonna say Death from Sandman GirlDuality: lol NLTAG: Probably Caitlin Fairchild GirlDuality: Why is that? NLTAG: Every woman in Gen13 has huge tits, a tiny waist and no spine and she’s the most prominent one. Gen13 is horrible Also, a strict safe search of her on google still gives you…

If Your Back Can Move Like That It Might Be Broken

I’m finding that Tumblr is an amazing thing. I just stumbled on to the ‘Eschergirls” which state their mission as ‘ a blog for pictures of female characters in impossible or ridiculous poses or with disturbing anatomy because the artists need to show teh sexy” The blog takes no mercy and includes Fathom, Darkchlyde and a wealth of anime and Power Girl into account. The also offer ‘re-drawings’ to more realistic poses. Give it a look here: http://eschergirls.tumblr.com/page/3

GirlDuality: I think the Superman logo is one of the most recognizable around the globe though. That and Coke Cola NLTAG: yup spider-man is the closest thing to them in terms of Marvel GirlDuality: Wolverine, no? NLTAG: Not really, Wolverine’s cool, but Spider-man’s been super popular for 50 years GirlDuality: I guess so, but Wolverine’s outfit is more consistent and he doesn’t have two super villains that wear pretty much the same damn thing NLTAG: Wolverine doesn’t have a stable of villains as vast as Spider-man GirlDuality: He’s got some of the stupidest looking villains ever NLTAG: Spider-man villains? absolutely!…

NLTAG Spider-man trailers are driving me crazy ErR0R42: how many are there? And is someone forcing you to watch them? NLTAG: Did you see the 4 minute trailer with him saving the kid from the car? ErR0R42: so when you say… driving me crazy Do you mean to say you want to see it it or that you can give a shit? NLTAG: No, it’s driving me crazy because it keeps concentrating on the 59th street bridge and Gwen Stacy It’s like “OMG, Why don’t you just telegraph to the fans what’s going to happen?” ErR0R42: wait.. did you just…
