Others are more discreet and deadly, like Mystique's ability to cloak herself under anyone's skin, and Professor X's penchant for invasive psychosis. Regardless of size or steel, these powers are sharp, cutting and are the perfect tools to sto...

“They’re sort of over it now,” Marsden said. “The whole thing’s been demystified for them. I have a four-year-old daughter and a nine-year-old son. What’s really interesting is when my son was about that age, I got excited because I thought, ‘Oh, they’re going to get to see their dad in this film.

Everything Geeky - Give Female Superheroes A Chance!

At the San Diego Comic Con I was speaking with Michael Jelenic, the writer of the recent animated movie "Wonder Woman," and we were lamenting that the film did not do quite as well as everyone hoped. Even with the positive critical response and excellent promotion, it just didn't get the high sell numbers fans were waiting for, although it did moderately well overall.

The reason I personally watched closely was because without proving that a female superhero can sell DVDs and toys, it is unlikely we'll see very much more of it in the mass media. They mostly sold the movies Elektra and C...

Welcome to "Everything Geeky," a brand new regular column on Starpulse.com. Now I've been branded a geek my entire life after growing up in a comic book store and focusing more energy on the X-Men than American History.

First and foremost what we all have to realize is one simple truth: we're all geeks. The definition of geek has changed a lot over the years, but these days it seems to be a person who is overly obsessed with a subject or hobby. Now that does traditionally extend to things like computers, fantasy, and sci-fi, but believe it or not, a football fan who obsesses over the ...
