It hurts us, it hurts us.

Ahhh, what the f*** Marvel?! This kiddie sh*t was supposed to come after your buyout by Disney! I couldn't stand five SECONDS of this show! For those of you who haven't noticed yet. this is The Marvel Super Hero Squad, basically the Marvel Universe as portrayed by bobbleheaded children. So basically Jim Henson's Marvel Babies would be a good summation. Only difference is, Kermit the Frog never had adamantium claws, and Gonzo never had the Power Cosmic, athough I'm pretty sure Ms. Piggy did have the ability to devour planets. Now, I don't have a problem introducing children to your franchise, but that doesn't mean you have to spoon feed them this drivvle. Maybe it's just aimed at a younger crowed than I should've expected, but that didn't stop me as a child from enjoying the X-men and Spider-Man cartoons on Fox, and those are second only to Batman the Animated series for greatest cartoon based on a comic. Granted this is because Spider-Man had strict censorship, and X-men can only carry the other shows so much (I'm looking at you Avengers, Silver Surfer, and Iron Man), while Batman was the foundation for the Timmiverse, or DC Animated Universe, with classics like the Justice League cartoons and Static Shock. Hell, even Batman: the Brave and the Bold has more dignity than this tripe. With any luck, children will ignore this show and it will get cancelled five episodes in, and they'll go back to watching things like The Spectacular Spider-Man or the Brave and the Bold.

Yet even more webcomics you probably aren't reading

Hey hey, it's that time again. Time for me to introduce you to more webcomics that don't have that much coverage in my opinion. Now let's start this thing.

Bad Gods: Lore Sjöberg is the author of quite a few webcomics on his site, my personal favorite being Monster Manual Comix, just because I'm that big of a nerd. but my all time favorite strip from his strip comes from One Word: Cute. Let's just say it can be summed up in four words, "Huge Plush Charles Bronson!" And if you don't like comics, at least his Lore Brand comics come with the recipe for an alcoholic beverage.
Weregeek: Listen, if you've ever even considered playing a tabletop RPG, you should at least read the first chapter. Seriously, that's all I'm going to say, because anything else would be a spoiler.
Nerf NOW!: Really I just found thi when I was looking for Team Fortress 2 webcomics. It's really just a cute silent comic that covers popular Video Games like TF2, Starcraft, and sometimes a few others. Latley the author seems to have decided to introduce original characters in the form of Casual Kid, Hardcore Dad, and Old School Grandpa. I'll admit that even I don't understand all the jokes, since I don't regularly play TF2, and even then it's only on the Xbox 360, so I don't get some of the slang or the Class evolution week jokes. But if you've been playing it from the start, then maybe you might understand better.

And that's all for now. I've decided that I'm going to hold back on my #1 Mad Scientist until I get some followers, so as not to spoil it for new readers. I won't add it until I have five followers and a comment on each of my posts.

Top 5 Mad Scientists Part 2: Wrath of the Electric Boogaloo

Yesterday I sang my praises of the most misunderstood of scientists, The Mads. Whether it be their death rays or giant robots, one can't help but love their future Overlords, especially when they use a mind control device on you. Now on to the show
#3 Dr. Cube
. What can be said about this living legend, other than "Please stop hitting me." Dr. Cube is a man who, unlike other Mad Scientists, isn't afraid to get his hands dirty and grapple with the heroes alongside his sins against god, especially in the case on his #1 monster Hell Monkey. Unfortunately for people just being introduced to the glory that is Cube, he has a very extensive back story, just like every one else on Kaiju Big Battel. It would be easier to just jump in and then hope to get filled in along the way, or you could just purchase the DVD's from KBB's website.

#2 Dr. Clayton Forrester. Now you might say, "Gee, Lemur, didn't he start out on television?" And to that I say, "Don't call me Lemur, cause that's not my name. And you try to watch Mystery Science Theater 3000 this day and age without the use of the internet." Sure you could purchase some of the DVD's at Best Buy, or wait for the 1:00 A.M. Showing of MST3K: The Movie on Showtime, but good luck finding any other way to watch KTMA era episodes. So he stays, and if you don't like it, I'll shoot you into space. Where was I? oh yes, the genius that is Dr. Clayton Forrester. A whole generation of internet celebrities have him to thank for the brilliant punishment of making people watch horrible movies. Unfortunately they forget to make other people watch them, and instead submit themselves to unbearable movies for the amusement of others.

Now you may be asking yourself, "But who could possibly beat out the Original Mad?" to which I respond, "Stop talking to yourself you weirdo, or I won't tell you." And I won't. At least not tonight. In closing, remember to check in on Doc Mock's moview Masoleum, specifically episode 9, part 2 for a bit of my sage wisdom. Until tomorrow, farewell.

Top 5 Mad Scientists Part 1

I'd just like to draw some attention to some attention to some of the less appreciated individuals in the science community, that of the mads. Too long now have they been cast in a negative light, always equated with horrible abominations against God. Not all are complete monsters, and are merely misunderstood. Or is it underestimated. I always get those to confused. Without further ado, here are my top five Mad scientists on the web right now.

5. Dr. Insano. Whether it be utilizing the Giant Robot Neutro to destroy his enemy's house, or letting loose fire apes that are on fire to cause rampant chaos, or simply bringing SCIENCE into a shootout, Dr. Insano always has a way to ruin your day...with SCIENCE! What he lacks in elaborate costumes, he more than makes up for with persistance, even once coming close to destroying coming close to destroying all of Hypertime with the Anti-Comic equation, known only as Warrior #1. But that was an Elseworld story, so no one really cares about that.
#4 Doc Mock. Doc Mock has a masoleum, and he kept movies there so nobody could see 'em. But many years passed, and the time has finally come to bring the movies out to have a little fun. Cause these are the kind of movies that never go out of style, so why don't you sit back and enjoy yourself for a while. THe Doctor is in, and he's got something to say, " These crazy movies are going to blow you away." Doc Mock Host "Doc Mock's Movie masoleum, an internet show similar to Mystery Science Theater 3000 if crossed with Space Ghost, Coast to Coast. Every Friday night at 10 P.M. PST, 1 A.M. EST, Doc Mock has a celebrity guest join him, Miss Diagnosis, his lovely asissntant, and Lickey, the control booth monster, to watch old movies on their live stream show. Be sure to check in tomorrow for their return from their break, and be sure to watch the previous ten episodes on their website.
That does it for part one of my Favorite Mad scientists turn in tomorrow for part two.
