No Batusi?: 10 Crazy Moments In Batman History

This is a fun little list (in video form!) compiled by Looper about the 10 craziest things that have happened to Batman throughout his existence. The craziest thing in my opinion is that he and Superman never got it on. I know what you are thinking, wouldn’t he and Robin bang first? No, that’s too easy, but the sexual tension between Bruce and Clark is so thick you could cut it with a knife! Enjoy the video.   and for those who thought The Batusi would be on the list, enjoy!

That Time Transformers Saved Bruce Springsteen…Sorta

Back in 1986 Marvel decided to take a shot at one their own comic books saving a rock icon just as DC did years earlier. However, much like DC couldn’t get the rights to use The Beatles name, it appears Marvel couldn’t lock Bruce Springsteen into a deal, but you think that stopped them from using Bruce and the E Street Band’s likeness? HELLS NO! The comic basically drew the band in perfect likeness but used some pretty genius writing to cover their tracks. How genius? Well I’ll tell you Tony (all of our readers are named Tony today). They named the lead singer Brick Springhorn and had him sing hit songs like “Born in America” and “Dancing in the Night”. So, the heroic Transformers were likely saving Brick Springhorn from the Decepticons during a rousing version of “Dancing in the Night” which probably sounded/looked like this, but in this version I like to think Ironhide is doing the dance instead of Courtney Cox.

History Lesson: Chart Showing Which Superheroes Have Been Portrayed By Which Actors

This is a cool little chart that shows the actors who portrayed superheroes in film, tv, voice, etc. It even links up actors who have played multiple superheroes too (how nice of them!). Feel free to print off a copy for yourself and hang it in your bedroom. However, if you do that, make sure to put it in a frame because hanging posters is immature, but hanging posters in a frame? Oh, that’s classy as hell. Enjoy the chart! *For a higher resolution version click here.
