Atom Eve’s Pregnancy

I know Invinciblepresent Atom Even and Rex Splode #2 came out awhile ago, but I’m just now getting around to mocking the cover. In the first issue of Atom Eve the title character was introduced as a little kid, even though the cover showed an adult in a provocative pose. I didn’t even look in the issue, but based on my past experiences I bet that Atom Eve isn’t really pregnant like the cover clearly shows. She looks pretty angry too. Is she upset because of her pregnancy, her mismatched hands, or her dislocated hip?

Omegamen Fractals

I have no idea who Omegaman is or what this comic is about, but I like that there are fractals on the cover!

Thor’s Hammer

I wonder just how effective Thor’s hammer would be at pounding nails. I have the feeling that kids who get this toy hammer just end up beating their siblings with it!

Superhero Yoga: Psylocke Pose

I thought I should wait to build up my flexibility before attempting the Psylocke Pose. Since I decided I didn’t want to cut off my left arm, I figured it would be okay for me to balance on it. If I had PhotoShop, I could have erased it.
First of all, it’s pretty difficult to turn one’s upper torso the same direction as one’s rear end. I wouldn’t recommend it. Second of all, I could barely hold my right arm up that high when my spine was all twisted, so there was no way I was going to try to hold a sword. I was injuring myself just my twisting and turning and putting a lot of pressure on my kneecaps, and I didn’t want to add something heavy and pointy into the equation. Thirdly, my head is turned a little too far, but I thought my expression was pretty funny.

Superman’s Muscles

I’m a little concerned about Superman’s skin. Does he have any?  Do any of the men in the Legion have skin, or is it very thin and their costumes are painted on with latex body paint? There must be something wrong with Superman and the other male superheroes because we shouldn’t be able to see all of their muscles with such clarity. The women don’t seem to have this disease or disorder because I can’t see their musculature. Unless of course in the superhero universe male superheroes are so strong their muscles show through their skin and clothes and female superheroes are weak and frail.

Superhero Yoga: Half Spider-Man Pose

Not only is Spider-Man a nerdy photographer who is part spider, but he is also a contortionist. The Spider-Man Pose from Ultimate Spider-Man is for Advanced Superhero Yoga. The best I could do is a modified version, otherwise known as the Half Spider-Man.
This pose requires flying through the air, but balancing on one fist is an acceptable modification. Since this is impossible, I had to balance on another foot. I was also unable to hitch my leg around my right shoulder, and I also failed at hyper extending my left elbow. At least I was able to do the web-slinging mudra!

Green Lantern Gun

Because of the Green Lantern movie, there are a lot of Green Lantern toys and merchandise available. Ash wanted this gun, but considering that there are only two people in our family I know that I would be the only person getting shot! I’m very happen that we decided to buy Boggle instead.

Duplicate Comics

A symptom of fanboyitis is owning multiple copies of the same things. In Ash’s case, he sometimes has the same book in hardcover and soft shell. Other times, he might have a CD and a vinyl record. However, I was a little surprised when I saw that he had the exact same Legion comic twice. Did he think Superboy in a hair net was really funny and he needed an extra copy?
