Please add G.I. Joe to the list of live-action franchises that Hollywood is determined to turn into a cinematic universe, hoping to replicate the success (or at least the ticket sales) of Marvel’s movie output. The twist is that the plan is for this G.I. Joe-verse to include several other Hasbro action figure lines,…
We all agree that, no matter where you stand politically, it’s a good thing to “support the troops.” But what if, instead of defending our freedom, the troops were playing football games with terrorists? That’s the question posed by one particular episode of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, titled “Pigskin Commandos.”…
The Iron Fist show is still happening, according to Marvel. Get a look at Wonder Woman’s emblem in Batman v Superman. Steven Moffat discusses the moments that lead up to Doctor Who’s latest climax. Plus, a look at Galavant’s second season, and a familiar face returns to Arrow. To Me, My Spoilers!
As action figures have become more detailed, toy fans have been treated to some amazing-looking figures over the years. But not that long ago, when sculpting techniques were less advanced, toy likenesses could range from the mediocre to the terrifying. Here are 11 figures who look less like they’re ready for action…
The Hasbro Cinematic Universe? There have been dumber ideas in Hollywood. GI Joe: Retaliation (a.k.a. the good one) and Jem director Jon M. Chu wants to make it happen with one big crossover flick, according to a recent interview.
When Christy Marx was a little girl, she took her Batman comics and gave Robin a girl’s hairdo and a little skirt, because she was tired of not having female heroes to look up to. Then she grew up and gave us Jem and the Holograms. This interview with her by The Front is incredible and fascinating.
They fought for freedom wherever there was trouble—and by god, there were a lot of them. Over 150 soldiers, from common infantry to terrifying cyborgs, made up the GI Joe: A Real American Hero team in the ‘80s (and early ‘90s), and we’ve ranked every. Single. One.
Ninjutsu, the art of the ninja, is an ancient, closely guarded tradition of stealth, martial arts and assassination that is only taught to the most skilled of Japanese warriors… and pretty much any white dude who happens to be in the neighborhood. Seriously, it’s like ninjas have their own version of Affirmative…
Comics are a visual medium—but most comics still rely heavily on narration and dialogue. Once in a while, though, a series, a single issue, or even one great scene in a comic will forgo text, or keep it at a minimum, to tell a gorgeous story with just images. Here are 10 pieces of comic art that don’t need words to…
Mental Floss has a fantastic article on the history of the iconic G.I. Joe action figures, and how Joe had to be rebooted in the 1970s to appeal to new consumers.
Through a series of bizarre occurrences, you have found yourself in charge of All Entertainment for the next five minutes. You have just enough time to issue one decree — to get a show made, to recast a role, to put someone new in charge, etc. Basically, you have one entertainment-themed wish. What is it?
We constantly get our hopes up for upcoming movies... and then they let us down. It's easy to get sucked into the hype cycle, as people talk up their projects — but sometimes, you can tell just from the way people talk about a film that it's probably not going to work. Here are eight key phrases that usually indicate…
Please take a Channing Tatum-sized grain of salt with this news, but a new rumor says the third G.I.Joe movie will bring in the evil twins Xamot and Tomax as the film's antagonists, but that the Joe team will bring Matt Trakker and the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand to fight Cobra in this installment.
I kind of totally forgot that the live-action G.I. Joe movies were a thing that were happening. And now it looks like Paramount is gearing up for a third go at this, with another new director.
I'm so glad the latest videos in Honda's bizarre, toy-themed adverts are for good causes, because otherwise... well, these would be just as nightmarishly terrible, but there would be nothing hopeful to feel about after watching them!
I can barely stand how awesome this series of pictures by Andy McDonald is. Honestly, Note: I want an actual cartoon special devoted to an all-supervillain '80s b-ball team asap. Note 2: I may never stop staring at the picture of Cobra Commander. Honestly, I may need to get a tattoo.
As the title song always said, G.I. Joe 's purpose is to defend the world against Cobra, a ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world. They may have been ruthless and determined, but they sure as hell weren't smart. See these actual 14 ludicrously moronic plots for the G.I. Joe cartoon for proof.
That's the thing about Deadpool: he warps the reality of every medium he's translated to. And, in this print from Marco D'Alfonso, neither the Joes nor Deadpool has quite figured out how this crossover makes sense.
