Box Office Smashes: The Marvel Cinematic Universe [Infographic]

Marvel Cinematic Universe Box Office

We may not have known at the time, but the world of entertainment changed significantly on May 2, 2008 when Iron Man hit theaters. The movie, which featured one of Marvel’s mid-tier characters which they still owned the rights to, opened to rave reviews and made nearly $100 million on opening weekend en route to becoming the 2nd biggest movie of the year behind The Dark Knight. The most important thing, however, came in a scene shown after the credits (known as a stinger) in which Nick Fury approaches Tony Stark to talk about The Avengers. From that moment, the Marvel Cinematic Universe began to form.

Deadman Forever: The Evolution of The Undertaker [Infographic]

The Evolution of the Undertaker

The Deadman. The Phenom. Mark Calaway has gone by many nicknames over his professional wrestling career, but he will always be known to most simply as The Undertaker. Since his WWE debut nearly 30 years ago, The Undertaker has been a fan favorite and one of the most iconic Superstars to step into the ring...or the cage...or the boiler room...or the cell. Having never been one to back down from a challenge, the list of accomplishments and ground-breaking matches (both figuratively and literally) over The Undertaker's storied career is among many all-time wrestling greats. Even though he didn't carry the gaudy number of championships of other such legends, he remained at the top of his game for the longest time. It wouldn't matter if he was thrown in a casket or buried under a giant mound of dirt. He always came back. After all, you can't kill what won't die...

Funding Football: The Cost of the Big Game [Infographic]

The NFL's championship game has grown into one of the biggest and most watched events. The game itself and the week leading up to it are quite the spectacle and getting tickets has proven hard to come by. The first such game had empty seats and you could walk up to the box office and pay $12 to get in, which would be unheard of today. In fact, you simply can't just get tickets to the game at face value anymore. Fans typically pay at least three to four times the face value of tickets.

They’re Good Logs: The Most Famous Logs of All [Infographic]

They’re Good Logs: The Most Famous Logs of All

Twin Peaks is coming back to television, and so many wonderful memories are coming along with it. Wacky, weird, whimsical memories. We were joking about the Log Lady around the office and that branched out to Ren & Stimpy’s “The Log Song”, and then a whole discussion about logs ensued. What can we say? It’s a strange place. So we made this definitive infographic about our favorite logs, from the Lincoln Logs that some of us played with as children to the Yule Log that some of us still watch around the Holidays. Because everyone needs a log, right? After all, they’re good logs, Brent. So many bad log jokes on the “b-log” today, sorry. Anyways, we hope you get a laugh out of it, too!

Super Anniversaries [Infographic]

Super Anniversary Header

Comic book artists breathe life into new creations each and every year. Some of these new characters might start as a doodle on a napkin, or as a well-thought out addition to a long-standing comic book. It’s such a momentous occasion either way, but why do we stop there? Why do we forget their entry into this world without even so much as a nod of celebration? Well, this infographic looks to change all that by giving us an in-depth view of every major superhero “birth” since Superman first graced the pages of Action Comics back in 1938.

This extensive infographic shows the month and date that each superhero character hit the shelves of stores. It covers characters from Marvel, DC, Image, and even many other big name comic book mainstays. Unfortunately, Jughead didn’t make the list. His exploits as Captain Hero STILL weren’t enough to get him considered as a real superhero. (Sorry, Jughead. You tried.)

The Evolution of Batgirl [Infographic]

There have been several versions of Batgirl over the years, but the most the definitive one has been Barbara Gordon, who made her DC Comics debut on November 29, 1966 in Batman #359. While it’s been 50 years since Gordon’s debut as Batgirl, there was another Bat-girl (Betty Kane) who debuted 5 years earlier in Batman #159. Betty Kane is the niece of Kathy Kane, the original Batwoman who, coincidentally, debuted 60 years ago in 1956.
