These evil villains looks so cute you kinda just want to pinch their little cheeks. Artist Mr. Florey has taken the scariest of villains like Magneto, Voldemort and even an Alien and turned them into something lovable and huggable. How can you not love these guys?

In the video after the break, a very nervous cat jumps whenever the sound effect is played in the original Super Mario Bros. It’s as hilarious as you might expect.
Speaking of nerdy cats, the image above is of a beautiful Portal-eyed kitty named Bristol. Some a*shole spray painted her, but she is currently available for adoption at the Wake County Animal Center. So, if you live in the Raleigh, North Carolina area, you can finally show this cat some kindness—and make some awesome Portal cat videos in the process.
Snow days are terribly exciting when you’re a kid, and I love to think that somewhere a bunch of neighborhood kids hang out and pretend to be characters in The Princess Bride. Heck, I just like to imagine that they know the movie. This adorable art is by Patrick Ballesteros, the same genius behind the cutest Firefly art ever. The little Inigo Montoya spray painting the sail might be my favorite part.

Hold onto your horses – DC Comics is doing something fun and non-controversial!
They’re releasing a new digital first series called Batman: Li’l Gotham by Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolfs. It will be released monthly with each installment focusing on the major holiday of the month; the debut issue today will be all about Halloween.
The series will be in the style of the above image by Nguyen. It’s super adorable, and I can’t help but wonder if it has anything to do with the success of Skottie Young’s Marvel babies variant covers. From the DC Comics blog:
“This has been a passion project of mine for some time now, and for anyone that’s followed my work, I’m sure it’s more of an ‘its about time!’ explained Dustin Nguyen. “The look and style is a slight departure from my usual (think the exact opposite of serious), but the idea has always been the same—to take our favorite existing Gotham characters, place them in fun scenarios without having to be tied to just one continuity or look and feel. It’s basically a Batman book for fans, by two huge fans.”
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s issue will follow after Halloween. I’m looking forward to downloading it and giving Li’l Gotham a try!

Skottie Young’s Marvel heroes as babies variant covers are more than just cute; they’re inspiring. After seeing some of the delightful covers, soon-to-be-father Eric decided to incorporate them into his baby’s nursery and go full on Marvel with the theme.
He was frustrated with the lack of products available on the market so he painted a mural based on Young’s art on the wall and designed some simple yet awesome themed decorations to complement the art. There are some commercial products like plushes and lamps among the decor, and those are nice but I particularly love the handmade alphabet art and paper crafts. It came together perfectly.
Forget babies, I want this cute Marvel-themed room for myself!
