In this edition of the Hottest Stories and Best Comments of the week we rock out with SF rockers turned actors, dab Hulk-stank behind our ears, adopt sci-fi pets, discover Weyland-Yutani in the damnedest place, consider board-game movies, cheer The CW for its Arrow decision and realize that the end of the world probably ain't happening. (But just in case it might: Click now!)

Your best comment: Rather than trolling and gabbing around on the internet, she has effectively found an enjoyable way to express her appreciation of multiple genres of "geekdom" while providing witty commentary. What's great about it is that it is humble and it's done in a way that is most often not hurtful or disrespectful. She's getting all of this positive attention because she has elected to do something creative. Her work is consistent and she is completely dedicated to her "fandom" and her fans alike.
I stopped reading the comment of most BLASTR articles because sci-fi and fantasy nerds are the worst trollers around. Rather than criticizing what other people are doing in regards to this kinds of stuff, why not find a creative outlet. — Benjamin

Your best comment: My wife swears she saw him floating around in the background of a shot near the end. I didn't see it myself. But it wouldn't surprise me that they faked his death, but if they did, should give him a break until the next avengers, and let it be a huge surprise. — Alex
