A History of The Avengers (Infographic)

One thing that often happens when comic book movies come out is that fans will compare the comics to the movies. Sometimes, the comparisons are favourable. Sometimes, less so.

The Avengers Meets The Power Rangers in an Intro Mashup

You know what? I’m already sick of those 1995 style intros for TV dramas. One was unique but I’m already tired of it and only a couple more have popped up since that first one for The Walking Dead.
