This elegant wedding cake hides a superheroic secret


Kia Parsons wanted a traditional wedding cake, with sophisticated flowers and beads. However, her husband-to-be Billy Bunning envisioned something more playful that would reflect his love of comic books. Their compromise is pretty inspired.

Designed by Julia Baker of Tier By Tier in Milton Keynes, England, the beautiful four-tiered cake is all business up front, precisely how Parsons imagined. But in the back? Fondant curtains are pulled back to reveal tiers representing Iron Man, Batman, Spider-Man and Captain America.

iron man experience1

Perhaps overshadowed at the D23 Expo by big announcements about Star Wars- and Toy Story-themed lands at Disney parks was the first ride footage from the Iron Man Experience, debuting next year at Hong Kong Disneyland.

Announced in October 2013, the estimated $100 million attraction will “take guests on an epic adventure against the forces of evil over the streets and in the sky above Hong Kong.” It will be the first permanent Marvel attraction at any Disney theme park.

Superheroes soar into New-York Historical Society

"Wonder Woman" #7 ("Wonder Woman For President')

“Wonder Woman” #7 (“Wonder Woman For President’)

The New-York Historical Society will explore the history of superhero comics, and the city’s importance “as a creative force behind a uniquely American mythology,” in an exhibition called “Superheroes in Gotham.”

“Comics are a huge cultural force, but few remember their New York roots,” Dr. Louise Mirrer, president and CEO of the New-York Historical Society, said in a statement. “’Superheroes in Gotham’ will immerse visitors in the early days of comics and their evolution, so they can learn more about the genesis of their favorite characters, encounter new voices that continue the creative tradition today, and perhaps see aspects of their own neighborhoods imaginatively captured on the page.”

Watch the Hulkbuster lay waste to Los Santos in ‘Grand Theft Auto V’


When you set out to unleash hell on the crime-ridden streets of Los Santos, sometimes plain ol’ Mark III armor with repulsor rays and missiles just isn’t enough. No, sometimes you need to break out the serious firepower, like, say, the Hulkbuster.

That’s exactly what JulioNB did in his latest PC mod for Grand Theft Auto V, which is pretty impressive. His Hulkbuster is so detailed and on-model, that it could be mistaken for an official release.

Here’s how to create your own Iron Man arc reactor

Iron Man

Dustin McLean of “DIY Prop Shop,” who only recently demonstrated how to create a hoverboard like the one from Back to the Future Part II, is back, this time to reveal the secrets of Iron Man‘s arc reactor. Not a working arc reactor, mind you (I’m not sure the local hardware store even carries those parts), but rather a pretty convincing replica.

The cost? About $39.

Iron Man blasts his way into ‘Grand Theft Auto V’


Sure, Superman, Spider-Man and The Flash entered the world of Grand Theft Auto V ahead of him, but now that Tony Stark has shown up, he’s at this car-punching, repulsor ray-firing, missile-launching, high-flying best.

In the new PC mod — it’s the work of JulioNB, who earlier added the character to GTA IV — Iron Man exchanges Stark Tower for the mean streets of San Andreas, where he proceeds to wreak havoc in the grand tradition of the hit game franchise.

Hot Toys’ ‘Age of Ultron’ Hulkbuster gets a serious upgrade


When Hot Toys teased it had more in store for its previously announced 1/6th-scale Avengers: Age of Ultron Hulkbuster figure, that wasn’t mere marketing hype. And this morning there are photos to prove it.

The company has revealed “upgrades” to the nearly 21-inch figure that include two more interchangeable neck-armor parts that allow the Hulkbuster to be displayed in different stages of suiting up, an interchangeable battle battle-damaged chest armor plate, and improved arm, legs and feet articulations.

These gorgeous superhero watercolor paintings make a splash


Artist Clementine Campardou challenged herself to paint a new picture each day that she’d share through an e-newsletter “Colour Up Your Day.” Over the course of two years, she’s produced more than 500 paintings, mostly beautiful watercolors, featuring an eclectic mix of subjects, ranging from birds and flowers to movie characters and superheroes. A lot of superheroes.

Superman, Wonder Woman, Silver Surfer, Wolverine, Supergirl, Gambit — they’re all there, in some cases multiple times, alongside the likes of Goku, Totoro, R2-D2, Astro Boy and Ken from Gatchaman. Oh, and Prince.

Here’s how those impressive Hot Toys figures are made


Although this brief video from The Story Plus certainly won’t answer all of your questions about Hot Toys, it offers a fun glimpse behind the scenes of the collectible company’s production facilities.

JC Hong, president of Hot Toys production in South Korea, breaks down the laborious process of creating the often startlingly life-like action figures based on the stars of Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Dark Knight and other blockbusters.

“It’s always a hard challenge,” he explains, “like giving birth to a new child.”

It’s Hulk vs. Hulkbuster in LEGO’s Comic-Con sculpture


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.

This stunning Hulkbuster may have all those other figures beat


Due to its big-screen debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron, there have been a lot of collectibles based on Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor — a lot. However, few are quite as cool-looking as this Re:Edit Hulkbuster figure from Japanese collectible company Sentinel International.

Like the Marvel Select figure, this one eschews the Age of Ultron design, and instead draws inspiration from the comic books. But while Diamond Toys stayed true to the armor’s roots, Sentinel gives the suit a bit of a makeover, adding plenty of LED lights, and what looks to be exhaust pipes (rocket launchers? I don’t know). As a bonus, the head opens to reveal Iron Man inside (alas, not a full, second figure.)

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


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.

This Asgardian Iron Man armor is better than anything Tony Stark has


Samuel Lee of Prince Armory is behind such mind-blowing costume and armor creations as the medieval versions of The Joker, Loki and Darth Vader. Now he’s back, this time with a gorgeously detailed Asgardian Iron Man.

The one-of-a-kind suit, made from leather, with brass hardware, isn’t for sale, but he’s always willing to discuss custom orders. However, you may need to have Tony Stark-sized bank account to afford it.

Forget Tony Stark, you can print your own Iron Man action figure

iron man-3d

We’ve already seen 3D printing technology used to produce Iron Man-inspired prosthetic hands and life-size Hulkbuster armor. Now one fan has used it to create a fully posable Iron Man action figure.

The Iron Man Mark VI armor is actually the result of an attempt by Tony Davis (not Stark) to scale up an earlier minifigure. He tells now that’s he successfully scaled the joints — “the joints get weird when you scale them up and down” — he plans to create for figures.
