I just saw X-Men: Apocalypse, which was pretty good. Oscar Isaac’s take on the titular villain, created in 1986 by writer Louise Simonson and artist Jackson Guice, had the right amount of godlike solemnity and bellicose bravado that the role needed. If you ask me, no portrayal of Apocalypse can come close to the performance of John Colicos in the 90’s X-Men animated series. Here’s a montage of some of Apocalypse’s greatest quotes from the show compiled by thejokersonyou!

One of the things I love about the Star Wars fandom is the high level of creativity that they display when it comes to showing their love of the franchise. Case in point: the wealth and variety of fan films and shorts. From straight-forward, action packed lightsaber duels to clever parodies, the Star Wars universe has been a vital inspiration to many independent filmmakers.
Speaking of parodies, here is one of the first videos I’ve seen on one of the top Star Wars fansites, TheForce.net. Here’s the 2000 short, PA Wars, featuring Scott Hahn, Dennis Stay, Tadd Callies and a Taco Bell Yoda cup.

Holy first appearances! Today marks the 77th anniversary of the publication date of Detective Comics #27, where a certain cowled, Chiroptera-themed gumshoe made his debut in a grim, six-page story called “The Case of the Chemical Syndicate“. Let’s celebrate this day by focusing on the two stars of the much more lighthearted 1966 Batman TV show that, at the time, sparked a wave of enthusiasm about the character. So sit back in your Bat-recliner and listen to a couple of songs that Adam West and Burt Ward performed in the midst of Batmania.
First is West’s “Miranda”, a strangely moody pop tune about a Batman-esque hero attempting to balance his crime fighting career with his relationship with the titular damsel.
Finally, check out this schmaltzy yet charming musical team-up of Ward and the experimental music maven Frank Zappa in “Boy Wonder, I Love You”. Never before has a recitation of fan mail sounded so pleasant!
Hope you enjoy these and don’t forget to share your favorite Batman stories and moments in the comments section!
