The tales have Princess Peach pegged all wrong- they portray her as a helpless maiden who needs a moustachioed man to save her from Bowser and his baddies, but Peach knows how to handle herself. She grew up in the wilds, riding tamed Yoshis and spearing ShyGuys without remorse, but something about Mario's fragile ego made her want to play the damsel in distress to his powerful plumber protector.

For every speeding wheel there's a brake, and for every flash there's a reverse flash ready to give him a run for his money. Speedsters don't always agree on the best use of their abilities, but when opposing forces clash at speeds faster than the human eye can register it's hard to tell which one is the bad guy. All the citizens of Central City can do is hold their breath and pray the fastest man alive comes out on top.

Jason isn't very good at knocking before he enters, in fact he prefers to skip the formalities and simply walk right through the front door before letting his axe greet everyone in the room. His mother taught him to be polite, but somewhere along the way Jason has forgotten all of her advice and now spends his days cutting snotty teenagers into bite sized chunks. The Voorhees boy might not be winning an award for Most Polite anytime soon, but at least he's keeping Camp Crystal Lake free of millennials!

Kaiju come in all kinds of crazy shapes and drastically different sizes, from tiny and almost cute to giant and gruesome, and the only way to effectively deal with them is by studying their anatomy. The knifehead may seem large and intimidating when you see them in the wild, like when they're busy reducing your pacific rim town to a pile of rubble, but once you know what makes those monsters tick you can finish them off for good. Knowledge is the key to destroying kaiju, and the only way humanity stands a chance against these rampaging beasts is by knowing their weaknesses and becoming one with the Jaeger!
Spread some kaiju knowledge with this Knifehead t-shirt by Adam Works, and expose what lies beneath the scary surface of those city smashing movie monsters.

Superhero cosplay starts at home, when the hero buried deep inside a cosplayer starts to emerge
Max wandered across the wastelands in search of fluids- water to slake his thirst, gasoline to fuel his engines, the blood of his enemies to satisfy his need for revenge. The thought of finding these fluids all in one place seemed impossible, but Max knew that people were banding together out there, and towns are where the fluids are found. The desert haze made it impossible to see what lay more than fifty feet in front of him, but he knew that whatever he encountered as he wandered across the wastelands would start the fluids flowing again...

Rocket has found himself in all sorts of predicaments over the years, from intergalactic starship battles to rocket launcher battles to good ol' fashioned fang and claw battles, but he'd never felt more scared than when he found himself dangling from a tree branch a hundred feet off the ground. He had mistaken the tree for his buddy Groot, albeit a Groot who'd received too much galaxy growth serum, so he scurried up into the branches to take a nap. But when he awakened and discovered it was just an ordinary old tree, and he was stuck way up in the top branches with no easy way down, he started to freak out...

Luke was looking to add a new droid to his entourage, but he'd decided this time he would only add one that had max medical capabilities, in case he lost another limb in a light saber battle. He discovered a unit being sold by Jawas that looked kinda like a 3PO unit only much more plump, and when he approached the droid he was amazed to discover that it already knew his name. Fascinated by the unit dubbed "big hero bay" Luke began to haggle with the little droid salesman, which generally involved a little force-ful persuasion...

It's hard to tell what Rick is looking for when he starts shouting "Coral!", but maybe he was a marine biologist in his pre-apocalyptic life?

Austin was feeling totally groovy after defeating the nefarious Nude Noodler, and his after mission party was in full swing when something came crashing through his roof. It looked like an ordinary blue police box, but last time he'd checked police boxes didn't fly. He went in for a closer look when a man emerged from inside the box, head bloodied and clothes in tatters. The man called himself The Doctor, and he told Austin a strange tale about aliens with amazing powers, screwdrivers that emitted sonic waves and time machines that were far bigger on the inside. The Doctor handed Austin a strange device, and with his dying breath he muttered "You're the Doctor now, Austin, and you must keep the universe totally shagadelic..."

Daryl and the rest of the survivors were tired of simply destroying the undead wandering all around, so they started rounding them up and putting them to work.

The Krusty Krab was no more, and the alien invaders who had destroyed the restaurant, along with half of Bikini Bottom, were still roaming free. Bob had been standing in everyone else's shadow his whole life, but this time he wouldn't just stand by and watch his world crumble around him- he would act.

The Millennium Falcon is one of the most iconic starships in the history of science fiction, and both its overall look and the role it played in the original trilogy’s storyline influenced the role starships played in many sci-fi movies to come.
Han’s iconic smuggler ship has been commemorated and brought to life as toys, model kits, beds, cake molds, and countless DIY projects, and even though it’s not as shiny as other sci-fi ships it’s definitely an integral part of the Star Wars universe.
This detailed graphic lays out all the ways the Millennium Falcon played in to the original trilogy (and its brief appearance in Episode III), and even if you already know
For most people prank calling means ordering a pizza for an unsuspecting neighbor or calling a bar and asking for Amanda Hugginkiss, but for one little Minecraft obsessed prankster crank calls simply aren't enough.
This kid likes doing two things above all- playing Minecraft and swatting his foes, meaning he got SWAT teams to kick in the doors of those he felt had wronged him in real life and in the Minecraft universe.
The targets were a classmate and teacher from his school in Ventura County, California, and a player he considers his arch-enemy in Minecraft, who lives in Ocean City, New Jersey.
Two questions come to mind after reading this story- how does a Minecraft rivalry become so overblown? and can you really get the SWAT team to show up at somebody's house with a threatening phone call?

It appears 3D printing technology has already gone from new and useful to experimental and strange, and some people aren’t content with simple plastic printouts anymore.
Chocolate printers have been a reality for some time, as well as the amazing pancake printer (aka the future of flapjack technology), but creating a Easy Cheese printer is proving to be a lot harder than anyone thought.
Artist Andrew Maxwell-Parish is the cheese whiz who came up with the idea of using 3D printer technology to shape squeezable cheese food product into eye pleasing shapes, and this ridiculous test video proves it's ain't easy to print with Easy Cheese! (Video contains NSFW language)
Barney Lebowski has surrounded himself with some rather rock-headed friends over the years, but Walter Flinstone really took the cake in terms of having rubble for brains. Barney and Walter met while working at the stone quarry- Barney was a bumbling goofball with a mellow mindset and Walter was a big, angry vet who had just come home from the Raptor Wars. They represented opposite sides of the emotional spectrum, and yet they bonded over one major thing they had in common- a love of bowling...

Edward and Alphonse Elric are a mighty odd looking pair, but you'll never find two brothers with more in common, or less to lose, than these strange siblings. Trapped inside a magic suit of fullmetal armor, Alphonse is often thought to be the older of the two, which Edward really hates hearing, but once you get to know them it becomes quite clear that Alphonse truly is the little brother. His skills as an alchemist can't compare to Edward's amazing abilities, and he often makes mistakes that require his older brother to bail him out, that is, when his armor shell can't do all the defending for him...
Go fullmetal fabulous with this Little Brother t-shirt by Bocaci, it's sure to cast a spell over your fellow fans!
People love to post flyers all over the place, and putting up pieces of paper where everyone can see them is a great way to advertise the fact that you offer discount massages, dog sitting services, or guitar lessons.
Posting bits of paper with funny stuff printed on them is also a great way to troll the world, bringing a smile and a quizzical “whuh?!” to those who see your handiwork hanging from a power pole or bulletin board.
Professional wrestlers are paid to play larger-than-life roles that read well no matter how far away from the ring the fans are sitting, and their characters wouldn’t be complete without a signature style of dress.
WWE NXT's Finn Balor is no stranger to playing big roles, and he enjoys sporting "war paint" into the ring to make a big impression on both his opponent and the audience.
He has donned a variety of superheroic looks, from Carnage to the Joker, but when he saw the amazing bodypaintings being created by Emily Anderson he just had to go under the brush.
The Spencers were watching old home movies they’d recently digitized when they discovered that their first meeting didn’t take place on a fateful blind date ten years ago, but rather at Sesame Place amusement park when they were kids back in 1988.
Jourdan's family was behind the lens back in '88 when a bespectacled young Ryan entered from stage left and set Ryan's theory in motion:
...people come into our lives when they’re meant to and leave when they’re meant to, and obviously we were supposed to meet again. Our paths crossed more than once.
The Sixties will always be known as an extremely exciting and interesting era, and with all the interesting and exciting things going on in the world kid's TV shows tried to keep things interesting as well.
Some shows played on the world's obsession with space, others embraced psychedelia and rock music to keep things thoroughly mod, but above all kid's TV shows were stranger in the 60s than they'd ever been before!
(This list is far from comprehensive, so please feel free to tell me about any shows from the 60s that I left out and I'll include them in a follow-up article.)
Space Angel centers around Captain Scott McCloud and his crew, who are agents working for the Interplanetary Space Force aboard the spaceship Starduster.

Compositing video footage of a talking human mouth over traditional animation is a practice that is seen as silly and hoaky to this day, but adding talking mouth footage to illustrations by legendary comic book artist Alex Toth- now that's just plain criminal!
Awww, look at the cute little extraterrestrial sock critters! The Clangers are a family of mousey aliens who live on, and inside, a faraway planet. They're called clangers because of the clanging sound made by the trash can lids that cover their burrows, which help protect them from meteor strikes.
They eat Blue String Pudding and soup provided by the Soup Dragon, encounter strange flora and fauna on the planet's surface, and solve problems while under the protection of their dad, Major Clanger. They're cute and, like, totally far out, and if you watch one episode you're sure to fall in love! -Thanks Skipweasel!
