In November, a bunch of Marvel characters are getting TRON-ified. There will be several variants covers for various characters who will be redesigned to match the imagery of TRON. It’s at one point shameless cross-promotion between new bedfellows Disney and Marvel, but it looks pretty cool so I think we can forgive them.
More covers and press release at CBM.
I’ve always wanted super powers, but seeing as reality doesn’t work in my favor, I figured the only way I’d ever get close is through technology. Enter Everett Bradford, the inventor of the Prometheus Device, a wrist-mounted flamethrower! This essentially turns anyone into Pyro, sans the ability to manipulate the flame. The best part is that a civilian made this, so it’s not some super-exclusive military device (yet). Pretty soon, gun laws will be a thing of the past when people start wondering what to do about flamethrowers in bar fights. Word of advice to cops: invent a wrist-mounted hydropump or be prepared to be bacon.
UPDATE: Looks like Pyro has nemesis:
By now, most of ya’ll probably know that Wolverine was disappointing. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t great. And even though Watchmen was pretty fantastic, it too didn’t quite live up to our (my) expectations. On the other hand, Push, Coraline, and Fast & Furious were much better than I anticipated. And with several more big flicks from my bone picks still on the horizon, 2009 isn’t out of the movie game yet. Well, here’s a few more that promise to be…um, interesting. Check ’em out after the jump.
