What could possibly drive Miles Morales to abandon his role as Ultimate Comics Spider-Man? This better be temporary because Donald Glover still hasn't been cast as the webslinger.

Marvel promises the story behind this image will leave readers in tears.
If Slinkys mated with Greco-Roman art, this would be the result.
Li Hongbo is a thirty-nine year old artist from Beijing, China. His current gallery is called Pure White Paper and features these amazing flexible sculptures.
Each work of art consists of thousands of thin sheets of paper lightly glued together to form fluid, eerie creations.
Love of electronics and manicures is not mutually exclusive. Minx Nails just introduced the newest addition to their nail art collection.

Part of the new Minx signature collection designed by Leah Light, these circuit board nails are transparent appliqués that fit right over any nail color. Light, a well known in New Zealand and Australia as a celebrity nail stylist, wanted to design something that looked complex but was easy to apply.
Though not pictured, Minx will offer the design in silver for those of us who aren't overly fond of gold.

Molting never looked so sexy. It had a pretty low bar though, to be honest.
The leggings by Camille Cortet are laser cut textiles designed to resemble reptilian scales. As the wearer moves throughout their day, the leggings begin to age and break apart. Much like a snake, the pants not so much removed as escaped from once they become too old.
With great power comes a great number of bad guys trying to take you down a peg. Threadless held a design contest for the webslinger and out of 547(!) submissions, these were voted as the best.
Blacksmith is still a viable occupation. Instead of nobility, they just work for Hollywood.
Movie magic isn't all smoke and mirrors. Swordsmith and propmaster Tony Swatton has been forging weapons and armor for Hollywood costume departments for over thirty years.
Franchises like Pirates of the Caribbean and Blade are notches on his professional belt. But Game of Throne, with its long history of named Valyrian steel swords, is new kind of challenge.
This behind-the-scenes look shows off how cool it is to create Jaime Lannister's sword, though they do not mention if it's his everyday one or the Valyrian Oathkeeper.
Bruce Banner has more personalities in his head than George R.R. Martin. Comic books are notorious for playing fast and loose with the origins of their creations.
Gray Hulk - "The Incredible Hulk"
More intelligent than his green counterpart, the Gray Hulk went by the pseudonym of "Joe Fixit" and took up residence in Las Vegas working for a crooked casino owner. Banner, repressed in Hulk's mind, eventually reasserted himself until they began to change places with each sunrise and sunset, with Hulk asserting himself at night.
The Incredible Thing - "Age of Apocalypse"
In an alternate reality where Bruce Banner never became Hulk and mutants rule the world, the human Banner was a member of the Human High Council, the ruling body of the surviving human population.
However, he longed to become a mutant in order to escape being a second-class citizen. Caving in to the moral low ground, Banner sold himself to one of the Horsemen of Apocalypse in order to experiment on mutants and eventually himself. The results were the Thing, a Gray Hulk variant Banner could revert between at will.
Aboriginal Hulk - "House of M"
To control his dark side, Bruce Banner goes into seclusion. Setting up shop among the Aborigines of Australia, they help him achieve peace with himself by detaching from society — until the new totalitarian mutant government threatens the safety of his new friends. Then all bets are off as Hulk teams up with terrorist group A.I.M. to conquer all of Australia.
This story is the lead-up to the much lauded Civil War series.
Infernal Hulk - "The Incredible Hulk"
In a reality where Bruce Banner and Hulk were separated into two bodies by magic, Hulk ended up being cast into hell. Corrupted by the demonic beings he encountered eventually converted Hulk into a demon. Devoid of any sense of good, Infernal Hulk escaped from hell and attempted to kill his creator, Bruce Banner.
Waldo made an unexpected appearance in a recent Marvel comic book. Now that he's officially part of the lexicon, it's time to reveal his true identity.
Can you spot Waldo hidden in the final page of Gambit #8?
This raises the question, is Waldo a superhero? He might be. Think about it.
He has a superpower.
The ability to hide in plain sight.
He wears a costume.
Like all good superheroes, Waldo knows the importance of brand identity.
From the air, dirty snow resembles sand. The result is straight out of a post-apocalyptic scene.
The photo was snapped from a Boeing 777 two days after Nemo roared up the east coast.
It's basically the Olive Garden of love stories. In hindsight, maybe true love shouldn't make you hate yourself.
Netflix understands me.
First impressions are crucial in the 24th century.
Both the arts and space exploration could use more funding to keep making awesome collaborations. Just sayin'.
Col. Chris Hadfield has done more to raise the profile of astronauts in a few short months than anyone else in years. Between recording the first original song in space to having a conversation with Captain Kirk to showing off day-to-day life aboard the Internnational Space Station, Hadfield is doing his part to reignite a love of space travel.
His most recent contribution is a song he co-wrote with Ed Robertson, "I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing). It's being described as the first space-to-earth musical collaboration and was recorded with help from the children's choir, the Wexford Gleeks.
Between 2009 and 2011 U2 had some astronauts pre-record verses during their 360 Tour but live music co-written by the commander of the ISS is a totally different animal. Sorry Bono.
Conversely, perhaps the United States is way bigger. Obtuse geographical distances can be hard to wrap your mind around until something like this happens.
Redditor BoredBoarder8 created this map when he was having a difficult time grasping the size of the moon. Using a known distance, the continental United States, as a reference point, he extrapolated the data onto the moon.
According to BoredBoard8:
It was difficult for me to fathom the size of the moon, thus inspiring the creation of this map. For me, this map puts the scale of the moon much smaller than I previously imagined. But it's really interesting hearing how others (already grasping the size of the moon) now see the US as larger.
It was one definitely a weird challenge to take a "flat" map of something on a sphere and project it onto a smaller sphere. [...] Certainly take it only as an approximation, but what intrigued me the most is that the distance spanning the continental United States is roughly equal to a little less than half the circumference of the moon.
Family drama is always the worst. Aquaman calls on the Justice League to help stop his brother from destroying the surface once and for all.
The Justice League/Aquaman "Throne of Atlantis" cross-over concludes with a sinister discovery in Justice League #17.
After America declared war on Atlantis in the last issue, lines were drawn and sides were chosen. Now the Justice League has to put a stop to Aquaman's brother Orm before the King of Atlantis destroys the surface world.
But what is THE GRID, and how will it affect the bot the war and the expanding ranks of the Justice League?
Sculptor Nathan Sawaya and photographer Dean West have joined forces to create a series of multimedia images using stark photography and Legos called “In Pieces” . Introspective modern art has never been more fun.
Mathematical! Boom! Studios is set to reprint the first six issues in May with connecting cover art.
Above are issues #3 through #5.
The guys over at Bleeding Cool got access to all six and were kind enough to line them up in order for the full effect.

To boldly go to infinity and beyond! Canadian artist and illustrator Phil Postma gave the cast of Star Trek: The Original Series the animated treatment.
These are some unrealistic time tables. Music montages have to be partially to blame for our instant gratification society.
You can find a man.
Or become one.
You can get built.
Or get building.
