Spolier alert!!!!!!!!! I have amazing news, DC and Marvel are teaming up for (yet another) super, mega, crossover comic book event. And here’s the real kicker—it won’t be a comic book—it’s gonna be a movie!
Unfortunately, it looks like there’s not a lot of budget which means they’re gonna have to skimp on fancy sets, costumes, and visual effects. Big name actors are definitely out. The entire production is being shot somewhere in Mexico.
Apparently, this is the crossover we deserve, not the one we need. Sorry for disappointing y’all.
I don’t think we’ll ever see a real DC vs. Marvel movie. But, if we did, what would it look like? Sound off in the comments below.

So, I scoured some old books I had laying around and … (ta-da) I found a couple vintage gems to share.
Hawkman Saves the Day and the Cupcakes
Hawkman preserves a plummeting parachuter and his precious perishables in this ad scanned from The Flash #282, 1980.
Penguin Fruit Pie Heist
The cops foil the Penguin in his attempt to steal all the Fruit Pies for himself. Rather than applauding the policemen, the bystanders toast the pie filling in this ad from the pages of Green Lantern #99, 1977.
Apparently both superheroes and villains will shill for just about anything if properly motivated. I’ve seen everything from BB Guns and Chuck Norris Action Jeans to Sea Monkeys and hovercrafts in the comic book ad pages. Sadly, we’ve probably seen our last Hostess ads.
Which Hostess products will you miss the most? Sound off in the comments below.

Superheroes can be such jerks! When they’re not busy saving their city, the Earth, or the entire cosmos they’ve proven time and time again to be mean spirited, petty, and immature.
The other day I was over at my parents’ house and stumbled onto a few boxes of old comics. As I scanned the boxes for something I could give my five year old I came across these gems which illustrate my point perfectly.
The Flash is acting kind of touchy—keeping Green Lantern at arms length, not wanting him to get too close. Old GL’s not even fighting back against the Scarlet Speedster’s barrage of physical and verbal assaults. Why is the Flash adding insult to injury? It’s because he’s a jerk.
Seriously, Batman, the old push a bad guy into your sidekick who is on the ground to make him trip!?!? What would inspire Batman to use this junior high humiliation tactic when he could just as easily have incapacitated the baddie with a batarang, bat-lasso, or similar gadget from his utility belt? Say it with me now—It’s because he’s a jerk.
What’s the jerkiest thing you’ve ever seen a superhero do? Sound off in the comments below.
