Captain America Shot on Courthouse Steps

Captain America, the Sentinel of Liberty, the Star-Spangled Avenger, has been shot dead by a sniper on the steps of a New York courthouse, the New York Times reports today. He was 66.

In the wake of Civil War, the Marvel Universe-wide event that pretty much pitted everybody against everybody else, but was plagued by delays and no small amount of disappointment, I guess Marvel figured they needed a little extra 'oomph' to cap it all off.

I'm not a Marvel Zombie (although, ironically, I did really enjoy Marvel Zombies), but as a long-time reader of comics, hell, even just a citizen of North America, I know one thing for sure: Cap will be back. I'm getting a bit cynical about this, as you may have suspected, but I must express my comparative admiration for DC Comics, who killed off my namesake, The Flash, in 1985, and haven't succumbed to the pressure to bring him back. Although Barry Allen is dead, at least he has the good sense to stay that way and avoid stupid publicity stunts.

Nevertheless, I'll pick up Cap's comic this week and give you a review soon.

Seems So Slow

Great video - the song is called 'The Ballad of Barry Allen' and comes from the band Jim's Big Ego - the lead singer's name is Jim Infantino, I'll let the readers guess where the inside joke in that is...

Michael Buble - Spiderman

A new twist on an old favourite

See, Mom, You Can Get A Job Doing This. Or At Least an Education.

Or at the very least get yourself a grant from Wizards of the Coast to start or maintain your on-campus RPG.
Which will mean you'll get twice as many hot college girls as before by using your devotion to D&D as a pick-up line... Which is probably a -15 CHA penalty.

"Wow, you just granted me a hardness bonus of +10!"
"Did you just cast 'Enlarge Person'?"
"You're so beautiful I'm stunned for 1d4 rounds."

We Are Not Alone!

For those of you who haven't seen it before, "Invader Zim" is an absolutely hilarious cartoon which showed originally on the Nickelodeon network.
My favourite moment comes at about 1:26 - "Take me to the WEASELS!"
