Little Known She-Ra Spinoff He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Is Being Rebooted by Netflix

Just so we’re all on the same page regarding the important information, there are currently no plans for Netflix’s excellent She-Ra and the Princesses of Power to somehow incorporate He-Man’s prince Adam into its story. But that’s not to say that He-Man’s not about to come back in a big way.

Announced at Power-Con and followed by an official Netflix press release, Kevin Smith revealed he’s...

The Boys' Superhero Cheesecake Calendar Is, Uh, Fish-Flavored

Even though superheroes are people with idealized bodies that we’re supposed to ogle and wonder at, because of how seemingly impossible they are, it’s rare that you see male-bodied heroes objectified in a way that highlights their sex appeal. Every so often, you might get a glimpse of Nightwing’s ass or Batman’s wang , but those are always made out to be bigger deals than they need to be....

This Week's Best New Comics Are Veritable Orgies of Monsters and Mayhem

This Week's Best New Comics Are Veritable Orgies of Monsters and Mayhem

The funny thing about being an adult who’s into comics is how you become accustomed to reading stories that graze up against things like sex and real-world politics just slightly enough to convey that while the creative wants you to think about them, the publisher might not exactly be comfortably proclaiming it out loud. So, you’ve got to fill in the blanks a little bit.

But every so often,...

Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus Is More Than Its Nostalgic Sensory Overload

Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus Is More Than Its Nostalgic Sensory Overload

Netflix’s Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus is the sort of long-awaited revival of a cult classic that makes you appreciate the unique space the original series carved out for itself on Nickelodeon. But the special also makes you reflect on what audiences in 2019 ultimately get out of a series like Invader Zim beyond a potent dose of nostalgia.

Much like Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling ,...

Hal Jordan Joins a Space Cop Cult in Grant Morrison's New Green Lantern: Blackstars

Invader Zim Creator Jhonen Vasquez Discusses Alien Daddy Issues and Turning Misanthropy Into Art

Invader Zim Creator Jhonen Vasquez Discusses Alien Daddy Issues and Turning Misanthropy Into Art

When Invader Zim first began airing on Nickelodeon back in 2001, there really wasn’t anything quite like it in the animation space, particularly when it came to series squarely aimed at a younger audience.

Invader Zim was filthy, and often morbid in the way it depicted a world well on its way to falling apart long before Zim showed up planning to conquer Earth. That grossness was a big part...

A New Study Reminds Us How Ridiculous Spoiler Culture Has Become

Not a day goes by without someone, somewhere on the internet, feeling the need to express how they’ve been personally harmed by a news site focused on genre entertainment that committed the unforgivable sin of running headlines that very vaguely allude to the interesting parts of films and shows. “I have been slain by spoilers,” these people cry. “Why have you slain me?”

To be fair, there are...

The Return of an Old Face in House of X #2 Champions Some of Its Boldest Ideas

While speaking about his new “Dawn Of X” revitalization of the X-Men at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Jonathan Hickman explained one of the core rules for the event, an idea more comics publishers should take to heart. Though House of X and Powers of X were meant to take the X-Men into a bold, new direction, the series wouldn’t feature many new mutants.

Dark Phoenix's Concept Art Is Better Than Anything in the Movie, Shocking No One

To listen to people who worked closely on Dark Phoenix, like writer/director Simon Kinberg and VFX supervisor Greg Butler , there was a point during the film’s production when the vision for the final product included all of the cosmic pyrotechnics and epic space battles people associate with the “Dark Phoenix Saga” from Marvel’s comics.
