Back in the comic book day, The House of Ideas teamed The Thing with a guest superhero star of the month for Marvel-Two-in-One.

But while it might not necessarily be an even match comparing a playboy in a souped-up suit of armor with an alien-Norse demigod, the evil elf-sponsored end of the universe versus an […]Read On »

Unfortunately, Nathan Fillion walked half of the carpet, then went and posed with Zachary Levi and Tom Hiddleston and decided not to walk the rest of the carpet and wouldn’t stop no matter how loud everyone yelled Nathan. Of course, I was at the end where he didn’t pose. The premiere was held at the […]Read On »
