We’ve had Pirates vs. Ninjas and Kirk vs. Picard but what about Ewoks vs. Hobbits? A good Geek is supposed to love Hobbits but hate those cute little Ewoks. It’s as natural as breathing, or doing the Vulcan salute or saying “Use the Force!” when an object is out of reach, but not for me. I am standing up for those little furballs.

I love Ewoks and couldn’t care less about the fate of the Hobbits. They’re troublemakers who can’t walk half a mile without a snack break and they have dirty, hairy feet. Ewoks, on the other hand, are adorable and I love them. I know this is an act of Geek Heresy so terrible the universe may implode at the very notion. However, if you think about it, really think about it, you’re better off with cute, furry Ewoks than you are with hairy-footed Hobbits.

After the death of the Human Torch, some of you might have been left wondering what would happen to the Fantastic Four. The answer, apparently, is that they will regroup as a new superhero team known as the Future Foundation (FF)—and Spider-Man will join the team.

You can see them in there new duds in the cover for FF #1 (left) and the variant cover (right) pictured above (click to enlarge).

“FF will alter the very fabric of the Marvel Universe,” explained Tom Brevoort, Senior Vice President of Publishing. “Jonathan and Steve have crafted a unique, powerful new series that’s going to surprise a lot of fans with its combination of mind-blowing ideas and visuals.”

Injecting Spider-Man into the Fantastic Four will probably boost sales, but it feels like Marvel is kind of pimping out the character and spreading him too thin. But what do you think? Vote in the poll after the break.

With the constant barrage of Star Wars stuff coming down the pipeline, I got to thinking—how many times have people actually seen the films? I’ll bet the number is astronomical in some cases.

So, ballparking the figure, how many times do you think you saw your favorite Star Wars film?

I figured that the bizarre casting of Seth Rogan would mean that the Green Hornet movie would be an action-comedy, or actiomedy (comaction?) if you will. And it appears that that is, in fact, where director Michel Gondry is taking it. I’m not sure how I feel about this to be perfectly honest with you, so why don’t you tell me how I should feel about it in the poll after the break.

This simple “iPoop” concept starts with a common wastebasket, and transforms it into a laptop/tablet stand. It’s convenient, although it looks like it would be uncomfortable to hunch over and use. Still, the creator has started a facebook page in an attempt to draw the attention of a manufacturer that can turn this into an actual product.

But here’s my question: do you use your laptop, phone, or tablet pc on the toilet?

Nintendo’s annual fiscal report revealed that the company’s profit dropped for the first time in six years due to price cuts and sliding demand for the Wii.

Overall, Nintendo is still doing well with net profit totaling $2.4 billion (down from $2.9 billion last year), but it seems pretty clear that the novelty of the Wii has worn off. That having been said, I have to ask: do you still play the Wii?
