Superheroes take to the court with these NBA logo redesigns

logos-social

With Batman v Superman‘s record-breaking opening bringing new meaning to March Madness, and the NBA Playoffs just around the corner, Uproxx Sports has brought the worlds of superheroes and basketball together in a series of redesigned team logos.

Although the website offers explanations for the pairings, some of them are admittedly pretty flimsy. (The Bucks are matched with Blade because they share the same first letter?) “I’d like to say there was a big connection between which hero was chosen for which team, but there wasn’t,” writes David Rappoccio. “Some of them are obvious, some not so much.”

daredevil5-social

As fans count down the days — heck, the hours — until the Friday premiere of the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix, Mezco Toyz has unveiled its own impressive take on the Man Without Fear.

The second Marvel figure in the company’s One:12 Collective series (Captain America is the first), the guardian of Hell’s Kitchen boasts 32 points of articulation, a highly detailed fabric costume (complete with shoulder and knee pads), three portraits (standard masked, battle-damaged mask and unmasked Matt Murdock), billy clubs, billy clubs with poseable cable, interchangeable fists, display stand and clip-on sonar effect.

Artist reimagines heroes, villains in minimalist ‘Masks’ series

min2

Experimenting with the iconic nature of their costumes, Ukrainian illustrator Yuri Krasnoshchok has distilled the masks and faces of numerous fictional heroes to sparse geometric shapes in a minimalist series called simply “Masks of Superheroes.”

Spider-Man, represented only by those oversize white eyes, is probably the most successful of the bunch, but most of them are almost instantly recognizable, without the aid of the characters’ names.

We’ve seen Wayne Manor, the Baxter Building and Tony Stark’s many bachelor pads depicted in countless Marvel and DC comic books over the decades. However, in “Interheroes,” illustrator and architect Federico Babina offers a look at the stylish homes of superheroes if they were decorated to reflect their costumed identities.

‘Daredevil’s’ hallway fight scene inspires ‘Lucha Underground’ video

vampiro-img

If you’re attempting to sell your audience on a match between a 50-year-old retired wrestler and a current top-shelf talent, then it makes sense to turn to Marvel’s iconic underdog, street-level hero for inspiration: Daredevil. And with the character’s Netflix series still fresh in everyone’s minds, it makes even more sense to pay homage the show’s epic hallway fight scene.

Aquaman reclaims his crown as Internet’s ‘Most Toxic Superhero’

aquaman41

Sure, he’s the King of the Seven Seas, a founding member of the Justice League and, if all goes as planned, the star of his own 2018 movie. However, for the second time in three years, Aquaman is also the “Most Toxic Superhero.”

That’s according to Intel Security, which today released its third annual list of online superhero searches that are most likely to lead you to bad links, viruses, malware and websites containing malicious software used to steal passwords and personal information. The information is compiled using McAfee Site Advisor, which rates sites by risk level.

The Fifth Color | Netflix’s ‘Daredevil’ is Punisher’s perfect home

daredevil-punisher

Frank Castle is a simple yet evocative character who would be as much at home in a pulp novel or in a ’70s action movies as in a comic book. He’s a man out for revenge, which is an age-old trope. However, the fact that there are three Taken movies proves we don’t care; we just want to see it. What was initially a throwaway Spider-Man villain has become a fan-favorite character, making The Punisher ripe for adaptation in other media.

Being so popular means you can survive a lot of bad ideas, like Dolph Lundgren or being an Angelic host. But what’s the best use of the Punisher?

Matthew Pocci

Legal | A judge has ordered Matthew Pocci to stand trial on charges of felony reckless driving for an incident at last year’s SDCC ZombieWalk: San Diego that left one woman seriously injured. In a preliminary hearing held Wednesday, the defense argued that Pocci, who is deaf, was scared for his and his family’s safety, and was just trying to drive through an opening in the crowd of spectators, but the prosecution countered that he had grown angry and impatient.

Daredevil totally should’ve been called Batman

daredevil-batman

I’d never really thought about it, but considering Daredevil’s blindness and sonar vision, it would’ve made way more sense for the Man Without Fear to be named “Batman.” Well, except for those pesky trademark issues, and the Caped Crusader’s 25-year head start.

Dorkly’s Andrew Bridgman makes the case in this funny animated video that finds the guardian of Hell’s Kitchen struggling to rationalize his costumed identity, only to find his shaky argument further undermined by the appearance of Ghost Rider. Sorry, Matt, from now on you’re “New Batman.”

Chris Schweizer pays tribute to superheroes’ roots with ‘Marvel Pulp’

marvel-pulp-web-1

Superheroes sprang from the era of pulp icons like The Phantom and Doc Savage, and now cartoonist Chris Schweizer has some of today’s most popular costumed characters back to their roots.

In a project undertaken just for fun, the creator of The Crogan Adventures imagined some of the Avengers and X-Men as they might’ve appeared in the 1920s and 1930s in a series called “Marvel Pulp.”
