New Trailer for Next Bond: Spectre

Editor’s Note: “Ah…Jimmy? No.”

Sorry.

Editor’s note: “Better. Thanks.”

I’ve never thought that Daniel Craig was a particularly good “Bond”, but there’s no doubt his films have been some of the best of the “generic spy thriller” genre.  Except Quantum of Solace.  What the hell was that?

After the break, check out the trailer for the latest Jason Bourne James Bond spectacle.

Disney is going to make so much money in 2015 they’re recreating the Duck Tales title sequence in their offices.

Slightly Misplaced Comics Hero Case File #7: Dr. Thirteen

This isn't him, but this is the person whose face pops up a lot when you do a Google Image search for "Dr. Thirteen".
This isn’t him, but this is the person whose face pops up a lot when you do a Google Image search for “Dr. Thirteen”.  I am not sure who she is, truth be told.

I’ve always thought it must be tough being an atheist superhero in one of those big superhero universes.  Think about it.  Many heroes have firsthand knowledge of the presence of gods, angels, the afterlife, and demons.  And while many superhero characters are rarely identified as belonging to any particular faith or lack thereof, the only atheist hero I can think of is the Michael Holt version of Mr. Terrific, and he was an atheist because he couldn’t believe God would let his wife die as opposed to the idea of just not believing in God.  Holt was also as a member of the Justice Society, where he spent time with the Spectre, the embodiment of the Wrath of God, and probably had some encounters with Zauriel the angel on the Justice League.
