Occasional Links: The Custom Supergirl Edition

This cartoon from Something Positive reflects on the beloved institution of the comic book universe known as The Girlfriend:

Need Coffee points out that somebody is selling these cute little I Heart Warren Ellis T-Shirts on
Which reminded me of some other cute T-Shirts for sale...

Marvel & the UN are teaming up for a comic to boost the international organization's image:

In a move reminiscent of storylines developed during the World War II, the U.N. is joining forces with Marvel Comics, creators of Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk, to create a comic book showing the international body working with superheroes to solve bloody conflicts and rid the world of disease.
See, now Marvel should just get the rights to GI Joe and just go to town spreading Pro-America goodness all throughout the continents and fight teh Cobra.

Some of the first official Incredible Hulk movie images are being released...

This new movie -- not a sequel -- differs from Ang Lee's version in the sense that after Bruce gets hit with the radiation, he becomes this dude:

As you may or may not know, customizing action figures to fit your character of choice (or make a better version of another company's crappy one) has become quite the move. But I thought I saw everything when I came across these mods based on the Ape Entertainment series Sullen Grey. Marvel Legends never has a figure that sported a Bauhaus T-Shirt before...

And from the sublime to the gratuitous panty shot, we have this custom Supergirl action figure...

Hey, don't get me wrong, a realize to some people that little swatch of white cotton -- that virginal Playtex triangle -- is exciting. But it's a little creepy too.

Well that's it for now at Occasional Links. And remember, kids:


  1. i was stunned...STUNNED at that something positive when i saw it yesterday. i usually get annoyed at myself for still checking it, since it hasn't been funny in forever. (funny = joke dnd stats, i guess? i DO think those are hillarious. NERD). but something funny & cool? must have been a good xmas for rkm.

  2. also, it isn't that the panty shot isn't hot...just...constantly? supergirl fights crime mostly for the updrafts? lame.

  3. Supergirl mod = CREEPY!

  4. If something similar to that Something Positive had occurred in Identity Crisis, I might still be reading DCU books today.

    And that Batman clip has cratered my day. I hit play and I just. Couldn't. Look. Away.

    I must now try and pick up the pieces of my Friday. Anyway. Thanks for the linkage.

  5. I like the hair on that Supergirl figure. In fact, I like the hair so much that I didn't notice the panties until you pointed it out. I think panties on a girl figure is weird.

  6. "I am Bruce's raging Gamma irridated hypothalamus"

  7. It's official.
    Drunk rapping Batman made me shit myself with laughter.

    feel so dirty... and yet can't look away!
