On this Cinco de Mayo, we have the Hottest Stories and Best Comments (picante!) from the last week: Game of Thrones paintings, Avengers' sequel, Golden Era magazine covers & pulpy SF travel posters and ... the net worth of some of sci-fi's richest characters. (These are definitely in the 1 percent!) Oh yeah, and Peter Jackson discusses The Hobbit's critics.
Your best comment: The Wonder Woman pose...classic!
Marilyn Monroe on the first cover of Playboy couldn't have done it better! — Karma
Your best comment: Given the show, I'm surprised there aren't any nude paintings :) — P K
Your best comment: The Scarlet Witch and Ms. Marvel please. With only one lady on the team, it's currently a bit of a sausage fest. Not that I'm not looking forward to the movie (my husband and I have advanced tickets for tonight), but I'd like to see more female heroes. — Someone
Your best comment: This version also seems to have missed the big final twist in the original story. PKD's rather short story never leaves the Rekall office, and definitely never goes to Mars. I was about to spoil the twist, but I'll refrain, in the hopes that Len Wiseman is using it. I read his movie won't go to Mars at all. — Andrew VH
Your best comment: Judging by the color of the atmosphere in Uranus, it doesn't take long for us to imagine how the planet actually smells like. — Glenbw
Your best comment: People, I think we're losing sight of the real question here: does Chris Pine get to grit his teeth and scream, "KHAAAAAAANN!!" ? — Andy
Your best comment: Written by a Hollywood lawyer, you say? Wow, that really gets the blood flowing ;) — Happy Harry
Your best comment: Looked like a common drawing of a tesseract (especially since the previous page shows a line, square, cube progression. Didn't take it for the Cosmic Cube then and I'm still not sure I do now. Someone may have said "draw a cube" to imply the Cosmic Cube, but I don't necessarily think what actually got drawn really seemed to relate in my mind, but whatever. — Clyde M
Your best comment: Looks like Tywin Lannister needs to get some fiber in his diet to make his way up the list. — Adam
Your best comment: "The Hulk's image conveys a message about channeling strength to overcome workplace challenges."
HULK SMASH PUNY TYPEWRITER!
Today's CAPTCHA: "turrets, ktiesont". Amen to that. — macmikey
Your best comment: One word: Hong Kong Phooey reboot. — Eric Wilbanks
Your best comment: Yet another tempest in a teapot, the net effect of which will to be cost us an IQ point or two. — down2muchalready
