Yemen is in for a mess as last week’s rapidly-growing Cyclone Chapala continues to hold it together while approaching the dry desert air. If it makes landfall, it’s anticipated to be the largest storm to hit the country since we started recording them.
Dallas Nagata White is a photographer based out of Honolulu, Hawaii, with a particular interest in pop culture. She recently completed a photoshoot titled Heroines Over Honolulu. The island state makes for a great backdrop for these characters.
Even as a little kid who wanted lightning to strike me so I could get superpowers, I’ve always loved seeing the electric bolts get speared down from the clouds. Seeing lightning was always cool, it was the lagging and crackling thunder that was the scary part of any storm. That’s why this video of slow motion…
Jada Pinkett Smith really wants to be part of a second Suicide Squad. Ron Perlman still wants a third Hellboy. Plus, see Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1 in action, new clips from Ant-Man, Sam Raimi talks Ash vs Evil Dead, and our first look at Damien and the Sherlock Christmas special. It’s time for Spoilers!
A severe storm front in Texas spawned many inches of rain, multiple tornadoes, and hail huge enough to smash windshields last week, according to the National Weather Service. (Thankfully, no injuries were reported.) This baseball-sized hail fell April 26 near Rising Star, 150 miles southwest of Dallas.
Predictably, in the wake of the massive snowstorm burying Buffalo, we're getting a lot of mislabelled photos floating around of other, not-Buffalo places buried in snow some time in the past. Here's a few fakes we've spotted.
Earlier this week, an Air Europa Airbus A330 travelling from Madrid to Buenos Aires flew directly into a rather serious hailstorm, receiving serious damage to the nose and both windshields.
Whenever anybody asks about black women in comics, the immediate response is to bring up Storm. But Storm isn't the only black woman to rock superpowers and a costume. Here are 20 other black female characters in superhero comics who deserve more love and attention.
A pair of tornadoes touched down within a mile of each other in northeast Nebraska today. While multiple tornadoes spawning from a single storm are common, having an independent pair of strong twisters touch down this close together is rare and downright devastating.
On April 27th, a tornado cut through Mayflower and Vilonia, Arkansas. The EF4 storm had winds raging at between 267 and 322 kilometers per hour, wrecking devastation. A new satellite image reveals the 66 kilometer path of destruction.
Stargate's approach to addressing climate change involves wormholes to a parallel universe. It sounds utterly bonkers, but that far-out science fiction plot contains sneaky, real science. I know, because I put it there.
A massive bolt of lightning just struck the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa — and a photographer was there to catch it the precise moment when it all happened.
Earlier this week, Storm Ivar left tens of thousands of homes without power in Sweden. It also huffed and puffed against folks walking around downtown Ålesund, Norway, threatening to blow them away.
Kevin Wada loves giving X-Men characters fashionable makeovers, and his rendition of the all-female X-team doesn't disappoint. Storm looks especially spectacular in that suit; handy that she can make that jacket whip in the wind on command.
Well, that was intense; Superstorm Sandy cut a swath through the North East last night and is now making its way through the interior states and up into Canada. Twitter was absolutely abuzz last night with news coming in from the various networks, first-hand accounts, and the FDNY first-response scanner.
When famous science fiction heroes make the jump to children's coloring books, usually the characters' dignity is jettisoned in the process. But such was not the case with the 1983 Uncanny X-Men Super Activity Book. Indeed, this unheralded tome — in which Magneto builds a frightening "Alphabet Beast" — may very well…
A massive storm has been lashing the Arctic, and its fury is so great that it's actually breaking up the remaining ice at the pole and whipping it into a substance that one scientist called "slushy." Over at the awesome DotEarth blog, Andrew Revkin has been keeping tabs on the storm, which is incredibly unusual for…
We have absolutely no clue where this artwork comes from, but one can only presume that some confused Sunday school class somewhere is learning that the Three Wise Men once battled the Sinister Six and that Lazarus had a mutant healing factor. I suppose now is as good a time as any to mention that Ghost Rider is also…
Earth and space combine to create a striking image from photographer Bret Webster. The Milky Way almost looks as though it's come crashing through our atmosphere in a fury of thunder and lightning.
Call me crazy, but I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that Marvel and DC didn't sign off on these Mozambican print spots depicting comicdom's foremost superheroines mid-breast exam.
