The New Fantastic Four Reboot


I don’t blame Fox for rebooting a series that was never that good in the first place.  With the popularity of superhero movies and Marvel owning the rights to most of them, it seems logical that you should cash in while the getting is good.  The only drawback is that nobody wanted a Fantastic Four movie in the first place let alone a reboot.  The creative wizards at Fox decided to set their Fantastic Four movie apart. ‘How?’ you ask?.  By making Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) black.  This gimmick will set it apart from the other abominable Fantastic Four movies, so as to get confused with this (most likely) abominable Fantastic Four movie.

Fans are up in arms over this change of race and certain plot points.  Instead of being siblings, the Human Torch and the Invisible Woman are now step siblings….or half-siblings….cousins?  Who knows?  No, wait, I think…

An Adorable Baby

I did this design, but I don’t know if it’s humorous or horror.  I think it’s a combination of both.  I could have gone really creepy with this and made it look more realistic with darker shadows.  However, If I did that he wouldn’t be the chubby bundle of blood-sucking cuteness he is.  Then I look at this design more closely and think to myself ‘Where do I come up with this stuff?’  I’m sure a psychiatrist could answer that one…..maybe.  For more shirts like this (well, not exactly like this) check out

Let’s assume we do, in fact, use only 10% of our brain. If you could unlock the remaining 90%, what would you do with it?

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Brain Power.”

This is a question that has been covered in movies (Powder, Lucy) and comic books (Deathstroke).  Powder used the full power of his brain to heal, Lucy (Scarlett Johanssen) was insanely smart and could kick ass, and Deathstroke is an assassin.  So I would be an hyper-intelligent assassin with the ability to heal myself when wounded.  And use the 100% of my brain to solve a rubiks cube.

John Smoltz: A First Ballot Hall Of Famer and Here’s Why…..

John Smoltz was a consistent starting pitcher with a Cy Young award to his name.  He then made the successful transition to reliever (and was one of the best relievers in the game).  This switch was very reminiscent of Dennis Eckersley.  However, one distinct difference was John Smoltz is one of the greatest postseason pitchers of all-time (check the stats if you think otherwise).  All these combined elements make him a first ballot Hall of Famer.

As for some other pitchers who others think are on equal footing with Smoltz, they’re not. Schilling will never get in because he was never consistent (he had about five,six good seasons spread apart).  His totals don’t add up either.  And Mussina will never get in because he never did anything spectacular in his career (no awards, big playoff wins, a big win down the stretch).  Being from New York, watching Mussina pitch in the postseason was agony (aside from the ‘flip play’ game against Oakland).  He would either: give up a couple runs right off the bat or give up runs right after he was spotted a lead.  As Michael Kay so accurately put it, ‘He pitches good enough to lose’.  Amen.
