"U.S.Avengers": A Guide to Marvel's New Patriotic Superhero Team
It’s understandable if you haven’t tried your hand at that Batman v Superman cake. Maybe you’re not a fan of the Dark Knight or the Man of Steel, or perhaps you’re not much of a baker (believe me, I understand). But how do you feel about the Incredible Hulk … and pudding? No gamma rays required!
Baker and author Rosanna Pansino shows us how to make these adorable Incredible Hulk pudding cups as part of her “Nerdy Nummies” series. Even if you’re not big on pudding or Oreos (gasp!), how can you pass up that teeny Green Goliath with his angry eyebrows and cookie hair?
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.
Aside from the contents of Batman’s subterranean garage, and Ghost Rider’s motorcycle-turned-low-rider, superhero vehicles are pretty rare these days. However, there was a time — let’s call it “the 1970s” — when every other costumed character seemed to have their own custom wheels, whether it was Superman’s Supermobile, Spider-Man’s Spider-Mobile or The Punisher’s Battle Van … mobile.
But if the work of WrapStyle Singpare is any indication, perhaps superhero cars are poised to make a high-priced comeback.
Toshib Bagde has gone where few other artists dared with his series “Super-Heroes Poop Lab,” envisioning what the excrement of some of the world’s most famous do-gooders might look like. Hey, it’s a crappy job, but someone has to do it.
“I love superheroes,” he explained on Bored Panda. “They are just like us but, yeah, with powers. So I wondered, how would the poop of superheroes look? I think it should represent the characters.”
Although fans are gearing up for the release of Captain America: Civil War, Marvel licensees have yet to finish with their Avengers: Age of Ultron merchandise. Case in point: This impressive Hulk statue from Sideshow Collectibles.
Based on the Green Goliath’s appearance in the blockbuster sequel, the highly detailed
statue maquette stands 24 inches tall, and boasts a body rippling with muscles … and rage. Also: purple shorts.
Most of us have warm memories from childhood of jumping from chair to chair, or running with a towel tied around our necks, pretending to be a superhero. Artist Jason Ratliff captures that feeling of boundless imagination, and an undeniable sense of nostalgia, in his new series of prints “Super Shadows.”
This “Absolut x Marvel” line isn’t real, but part of me — the large part that likes vodka, comic characters and graphic design — desperately wishes it were.
It’s a concept by Indonesian designer Krizia Soetaniman uses the iconic Absolut bottle as a vessel for minimalist, yet instantly recognizable, portraits of such Marvel characters as Wolverine, Spider-Man, Venom, the Hulk and, yes, Iron Man.
A century-old Scottish kiltmaker has unveiled a line of tartans inspired by Marvel and DC Comics superheroes.
It’s part of an effort by Paisley, Renfrewshire-based Houston Kiltmakers to spur interest in the traditional garments among a younger audience.
“I just did this to try and get to a younger generation and try to involve them with the tradition,” Stuart Davison, the company’s head of marketing, tells The Scotsman. “It’s a bit of an older generation thing at the moment.”
Considering how much damage armed criminals do to Los Santos, the last thing the city needs is a rampaging Hulk, but that’s exactly what it gets in this new PC mod for Grand Theft Auto V.
Created by JulioNIB, the mod allows Marvel’s roaring Green Goliath to leap through the air, hurl vehicles and wield a street lamp like an enormous club. This Hulk is even armed with his signature thunderclap.
Superheroes like Batman, Thor and the Incredible Hulk have been used to promote a wide range of products over the decades, but this may be the first time they’ve been enlisted to promote dental floss.
Produced by Ecuadorean agency Independiente, this series of ads for Oral-B cleverly uses dental floss to create instantly recognizable outlines of the Dark Knight, the thunder god and the Green Goliath. They’re probably not authorized by Marvel or DC Comics — there’s no trademark information to be seen — but they’re clever nonetheless.
The next time Marvel and DC Comics want to reboot their superhero universes, they may want to turn to Vladimir Putin for inspiration.
The Russian president, famed for his public — and frequently shirtless — displays of virility, celebrated his 63rd birthday on Wednesday by playing hockey and accepting an award (for his contributions to hockey). Some of his supporters, meanwhile, marked the occasion with an art exhibition in Moscow titled … wait for it … “Putin Universe.”
A reddit user’s twin daughters wanted a Hulk princess cake for their fourth birthday, so by gosh that’s exactly what he made them.
It’s not fancy, and it’s probably not going to earn this dad a spot on Food Network, but it has won him a place in our hearts. From the lavender skirt to the purple bodice to the red tiara, it’s undeniably awesome. Or should that be totally awesome?
Eric Levine originally planned to transform his nephew’s wheelchair into an AT-AT Walker from Star Wars for TerrifiCon. However, when 11-year-old Ellijah Davila decided he’d rather go as the Incredible Hulk, his uncle leaped into action. Butt-kicking action.
An optician from Keene, New Hampshire, Levine doesn’t have a background in costume design, but he told the Keene Sentinel he wanted Elijah’s outfit to be “the Hulk with butt-kicking action.” After researching materials that he could turn into legs to attach to the wheelchair, Levine settled on foam and PVC pipe, and went to work.
Thor and the Incredible Hulk have faced each other on so many occasions that it’s virtually impossible to keep count (although I’m sure somewhere there’s an intrepid fan who knows the exact number), but it’s safe to say this new animated short is the first time Marvel’s new Thor has fought zombie Hulk.
The work of Milton Pool of Miltonius Arts, the video is a little heavy on fan service, with Thor (or “She Thor,” as he refers to her) clad in a costume apparently deemed too skimpy by Red Sonja. However, the short possesses an undeniable frenetic appeal, with a story — OK, there’s not really a story: Thor smashes some zombie skulls, only to be confronted by an undead Hulk.
LEGO always makes an impression at Comic-Con International with its enormous brick sculptures created by Master Builders. For this year’s display, the toymaker is calling in the heavy hitters — namely, the Incredible Hulk and Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor.
MTV News has the first look at the sculptures, which recreate that memorable moment from Avengers: Age of Ultron when the battling Hulk and Iron Man punch each other, creating a sonic boom.
