Whodathunkit?
Yesterday's The Multiversity: Ultra Comics #1 convinced me that +Grant Morrison and me are both fans of a certain Sesame Street book.

Well, Lookie Here!
What a handsome-lookin' fella there second from the left.  Honestly, this ain't a bad look for Yours Truly.  Trank coulda done a heckuva lot worse if you ask me.  The general face/head shape is there and the features are pretty accurate, particularly to how Yours Truly looked in the very early days where I had less defined features.  Still, he ain't as much of a looker as the genuine article o' course.  Maybe a Idol o' Thousands instead of Millions.

What do all o' you think?

I like the way you look! I hope the face gets a little more definition with different movement/angles, but I like the  asymmetrical elements of everything shown.

New Fantastic Four Poster
Yours Truly still doesn't have any pants but at least the CGI has been tightened up.  Seriously, if you compare this to the first #FantasticFour  trailer, you can see a significant improvement in how their version of me looks and the quality of his orange, rocky skin.  The fire effect on their Matchstick and the invisibility on Suzie-Q are certainly nice touches.

Still haven't forgotten about Trank's "slutty secretary" crack about Sue Storm in the source material though...  Can't wait until someone involved in this +Fantastic Four flick addresses that one.

Rocket and Iota from Milestone comics. Nether invented their own tech, but their powers were inextricably linked with technology.

Tachyon, from Sentinels of the Multiverse is an inventor, as is her apprentice, Unity.

Bulma, from Dragonball.

I'm still burned up about Josh Trank's "slutty secretary" comment about Suzie-Q.  Here's some new photos from his take on the +Fantastic Four.  Yeah, I'm pretty much taking these pictures as an opportunity to remind you that Trank said a dumb thing.

Kinda Love This-Here Headline
As much as I love Top Gear and Jeremy Clarkson's work in it, I can't really have much sympathy for the guy.  Anyone angry at the BBC for sacking him probably oughtta reconsider whether they or the bloke who couldn't NOT PUNCH HIS PRODUCER IN THE FACE is more deserving of their frustration.  Apparently, Clarkson never learned the finer points of Clobberin' Time versus Use Your Words Time.
In a completely reasonable move, a man was today fired after he was found to have punched a colleague in the face. Can't believe that the bbc has sacked clarkson #RIPTopGear— StefanCalvert (@1701Stefan) March 25, 2015 The attack lasted ...

Apropos of Nothing...
Here's the absolute best thing I've seen in a while.  Whodathunk that a mash-up of Harry Potter and Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars would be so darned catchy?! Dark Lord Funk indeed.

I hope people actually exercise some self control and not just go see this because it has the title Fantastic Four...
