Everyone who has seen Episode VII has a theory on who are Rey’s parents. These theories range from the intriguing to the totally insane. Rather than try to contribute to the growing collection of suspects, I thought it would be better to take the opposite approach. Rather then take wild guesses as to who her parents might be, let’s try and eliminate some potential suspects from the list. And so now I present to you the 33 Star Wars characters that are definitely not Rey’s parents. Jump after the break to know who we can finally let off the hook.
Remember a long, long time ago…ok, it was March 2015, when we posted the epic battle between Batman and Darth Vader? In the same vein we bring you another video from the minds of Super Power Beat Down that pits Darth Maul vs Spider-Man. You guys know I love Spidey, so you know who I’d vote for. Check out the video after the cut and let us know in the comments who you think should have won.
(If you want to skip over the preamble and fan interviews, the actual fight starts around the 6:50 mark.)
Sometimes you want to be a Sith. Sometimes you want to be from Hell. And Sometimes you want both, especially if you’re Luis Projects… Say hello to Darth Maul HellBoy. Fear not for your soul, for there are more Photos by James Rulison after the break.
Anybody can be Thor. But can it takes a creative genius to pull off Ronald McDonald Thor! I hear you like cosplay. I hear you like geek mashups. What about some freaking cosplay mashups? We got it here at Gabbing Geek!
This week on the podcast, those darn Gabbing Geeks discussed how to fix disappointing stories. They also discussed pop culture mothers after Mother’s Day, but I don’t have anything to add there. They also discussed feminist action heroes, but that might be the work of a future column.
Just go see Mad Max: Fury Road if you haven’t already.
But I’m going to take a moment to discuss how to fix a certain infamous set of prequels.
The interwebs is a cesspool of awesomeness, especially when it comes to Star Wars parody videos! Check out some of our favorite varieties that have graced the galaxy like: “Do You Want To Kill Some Rebels (Frozen)” and “Wrecking Maul” and of course the Bohemian Rhapsody: Star Wars Edition! See these and more after the break.
In this weeks edition of “Original Geek Art” we’d like to bring your attention to these beautiful Star Wars hand drawn and colored posters. All credit goes to Ben over at Bensmind. Ben states that when he was younger he used to make books about going out and about in the world where he’d write and draw about his experience. Now, all grown up, Ben is a graphic designer. The Star Wars prints came about because he proclaims himself as a massive sci-fi geek. His ETSY shop proves his passion. You can see anything from what we are featuring, to Star Trek, Game of Thrones, Dark Tower, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5, Breaking Bad and so much more! See more of Ben’s amazing work after the break…
