So this picture just popped up on Facebook and Twitter. “This is one fine piece of fan art,” says everyone who appreciates shirtless men ever. Only…it’s not. Fan art, that is. According to Newsrama, it’s actually an official cover variant for 2015!

IMG_0308.JPG

There will be 22 DC Comics titles with variant covers, each inspired by a select movie respectively. The movies will include Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Purple Rain, The Fugitive, The Matrix, and more.

Now I know what you guys are saying: “We’re even right? You have over-sexualized men in a comic book cover. Are you happy now?!” No, but that’s another post for another day.

I want you dudes to know that we women objectify as much as the opposite sex. It’s just we’re classy about it…mostly. All we need are a few muscley dudes with their shirts off (pants still on, please), and we’re good…

MAJOR SPOILERS! SO MUCH DEVASTATION!

Hold on to your butts, Agents, it’s about to get bumpy. Last night marked the mid-season finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Questions are answered, destinies are realized, people are devastated (and crying in a dark corner). Yeah, major spoilers ahead.

We pick up right where we left off last week when Agent 33 called in the kill order on Agent May’s team on the bus. In true Han Solo fashion May evades Hydra’s missiles by plummeting into some cloud cover, ejecting some anti-missile…thingies, and cloaking at just the right moment to make Hydra think they destroyed the bus. Silly Hydra pilots.

May and crew reroute to San Juan and fill Coulson in on the situation: Hydra has Skye now. Everyone’s in double crisis mode as they race against the clock to keep Hydra from…

The race for the mysterious underground city is on! Hydra has the key, and S.H.I.E.L.D. has the map. Who will get there first? Who will survive? Yes, there will be spoilers ahead.

We start off with Skye having one of those prophetic fever dreams. Wearing a sun dress that does *not* suit her current look (at least tie your hair back), Skye is wandering around an empty HQ. She hears a music box playing in the distance and finds herself in the workshop with Coulson clutching a Chinese newspaper. They’re both looking at the box wondering what it is. Coulson reaches out to touch the box, but Skye pushes it off the table. We then smash into another scene. Skye wakes up next to the fallen music box. Behind her are May and Coulson in suburban…

Assassins, youths, Alfred…OH MY! The youngsters take center stage in this episode as they try to outwit a gang of assassins. Some spoilers ahead.

We start off the episode with a mystery woman sneaking up to Wayne Manor. The gardner catches her and she wraps him in a body lock and chokes him to death. A few other men in cyber punk leather show up after her. She orders one to cut open the gardner, and then she wipes his blood over her face. Okay, this is one of the reasons why I could never be a psycho killer. What if that guy had some kind of disease that can transfer to you after touching his blood?! No thank you!

Bruce is at it again with his half-thought-out training session. This time, he’s trying…

Wow! Things are definitely happening! The psychos steal the stage, front and center, and I love it. Reader, beware! Major spoilers ahead.

Much of this episode revolves around the origin of Daniel Whitehall, whom we know was involved with Hydra back in 1945 and doesn’t look like he’s aged a day since then. We are transported back in time just after Captain America defeated Red Skull. Whitehall, known as Reinhardt back then, and his men are questioning a bunch of Chinese villagers. It seems he has been testing which ones don’t die from touching the Obelisk. So far he’s had no luck, that it, until he meets a woman (played by Dollhouse’s Dichen Lachman) whose touch actually makes the Obelisk glow. His interest piqued, Reinhardt orders his men to dissect her immediately…

Greetings, Gothamites. A new game is afoot! Penguin is closing in on Fish’s secret, another familiar character makes his debut on the show, and Bruce and Selina finally meet at last. As always, spoilers ahead.

Last week, Selina “Cat” Kyle got caught stealing a bunch of fur coats. Gordon takes her back into his custody since she’s still a witness to the Wayne murder. They stop by Gordon’s swanky apartment to find that Barbara has already gone. She left behind a note saying that she can’t stop seeing Zsasz and Falcone in her mind and it makes her nervous and scared all the time. So she’s leaving for a while to “get herself back together,” whatever that means. Gordon and the little cat burglar wait for a sketch artist to get down the details of…

Happy Wednesday, readers! Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is back after a bye week, and it just keeps getting better and better with no signs of slowing down. A mystery is finally solved, but it just opens the door to even more questions! Yes, there will be spoilers.

Hey, remember that guy at the very end of “A Fractured House”? Y’know, that mysterious dude at the tattoo parlor with all of those strange alien markings inked all over his body. He’s back, and he’s mackin’ on some artist who also knows about the markings. The two are just getting back from a night of drinks at a bar. They just met, but the artist feels like she still knows him from somewhere. The mysterious guy reveals himself to her (sort of), takes out a knife, and starts…

The battle for Gotham’s soul continues! Gordon’s faces the consequences for not doing what Falcone ordered him to do, and Penguin makes a move that could shift the power in Gotham’s crime scene.

Starting a little after where we left off last week, Gordon is scrambling to get his ducks in order after Penguin revealed himself to the entire GCPD and MCU that he’s alive and well. He may be off the hook from the law, but now Fish Mooney and Falcone are after him. Unfortunately for Gordon, they know where he lives and how to get to Barbara.

Two of Mooney’s men are already waiting for Gordon when he gets home. Barbara is there too (does she ever get out of the house?). The goons were instructed to bring Gordon in alive…

Gotham 8 - Gordon and Bullock

Legion contributor Christina Janke is recapping and reviewing Gotham for us this season. Follow her on Twitter @IntrotoGeek!

It’s a dog-eat-dog world in Gotham. If you didn’t know that from the beginning, you’ll certainly get an education courtesy of the Black Mask.

An office brawl results in a brutal murder and a body dumped in Gotham River. Their first clues found on the dead body are someone else’s thumb, which was stuck inside the victim’s mouth, and black ink smudged all over his clothes. Gordon and Bullock are on the case, but Gordon is still a little sore about his comrades (excluding Bullock) abandoning him when Don Falcone’s man, Victor Zsasz, came a’ knockin’. He’s having a hard time trusting anyone else and insists on overlooking/doing most of the investigation himself.

Meanwhile, Penguin and Fish Mooney have a private meeting in Mooney’s club to discuss logistics of maintaining a…

Barbie is a Terrible Computer Engineer

Originally posted on Legion of Leia:

Computer Barbie

In a world that is all up in society’s grill about equality for women, Barbie just had to go and mess things up, as usual. Sure, she probably meant well, but… Sigh. Do women actually write these “I Can Be ___” stories? Or is some begrudging dude in charge of these books, whose machinations are to indoctrinate little girls of the world with the thought that “sure, she can be such-and-such, but not without the help of someone-else-with-penis”?

Sorry did that get too graphic? Suck it up, it’s a legit medical term.

I’m not saying all of this as a scary, angry feminist, but a cynical one who dabbles in over the top conspiracy theories. But you have to wonder about what the heck goes on in people’s minds sometimes. The image below pretty much sums up everything that’s wrong with Barbie’s I Can be a Computer Engineer:
