lego mash-ups 3

If you have a pile of LEGO minifig parts in front of you, it’s only natural to mix them up and see what happens. Artist Alexandre Tissier came up with some perfect mash-ups for a Fiction Meets Fiction campaign for LEGO. He’s got Homer Simpson as Wolverine, Spider-Man as James Bond, Darth Vader as a geisha, and Batman in pajamas and holding a teddy bear. I feel compelled to make these designs a reality.

See more funny swaps after the break.

glover

Donald Glover is a big Spider-Man fan, and when casting for The Amazing Spider-Man reboot was happening in 2010, fans circulated a petition to get him cast to play Spidey on the big screen. It didn’t happen, but Brian Michael Bendis took note. He ended up basing Miles Morales on Glover when the character took on the role of Spider-Man in 2011.

Now, everything has come full circle with news that Donald Glover will be voicing Morales in upcoming episodes of Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors which will air in 2015. Glover talked to USA Today about why he likes the character saying:

“He can be anybody. Spider-Man could be a girl. Spider-Man could be an old man. You don’t know. So I just tried to be as me as possible, because you’re always just going to bring it back to yourself when you watch the show.”

Catch new episodes of Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors when the latest season debuts this Sunday at 9AM on Disney XD.

See pictures and a clip from the show after the break.

2036_spiderman_windshield_sunshade_folded_inuse

One of the grossest feelings in the world is getting into a car that’s been soaking in the sunlight all day. No one likes sitting in an oven, not even for a couple of minutes. ThinkGeek has three sunshade solutions to help keep your vehicle cool, and the designs feature Spider-Man, Batman, and the Avengers. The windshield shades block out UV rays and proclaim your geekiness to passersby so they’re really cool in two senses of the word.

See the other styles after the break.

This is one patient dog. Good actor too. Looks great in a wig.

spidey parkour

Get ready for the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 this Friday by watching what seems like a real life superhero perform parkour in Provo, Utah. Athlete Ronnie Shalvis dons the Spidey suit and shows how Peter Parker might get around if he ran out of web fluid. It’s nothing short of incredible to watch him flip and jump around city buildings. I can’t even imagine what kind of shape you would need to be in to accomplish feats like these.

Check out the action in the video after the break.

poop batman

You know that collector in your life who has everything, and is impossible to buy presents for? No need to stress any longer because you can buy him or her superhero poop! No one will see this gift coming.

Etsy seller Antoni’s Art Asylum makes fake turds from polymer clay and puts them in a special, labeled jar. They’re extra fancy because they’re created to match the colors of superheroes like Batman, Hulk, and Spider-Man. So many poop choices! Each pile of colorful crap is made to order so no two will be alike, just like real poop. Leave it in the jar or put it on a friend’s floor or bedside table for laughs.

Check out Hulk and Spidey droppings after the break.

commute drawing 1

When you spend part of every day commuting, it can get boring. October Jones, of Text from Dog fame, spent some of his time on trains in late 2012-early 2013 drawing new and cartoon-y heads for his fellow passengers. It looks like he based the heads on the commuter’s outfit. The person dressed in red (pictured above) became Spidey, and others got Batman, Hellboy, or Waldo heads. Though it’s not exactly subtle – you might get caught taking the picture – it’s a fun enough idea that people probably won’t mind.

Check out more of the illustrated heads after the break.
