From writer and artist Ed Piskor comes a three-part comic book miniseries that retells the story of the X-Men so far. Similar to what he did in Hip-Hop Family Tree, Piskor summed up over 50 years of X-Men stories in a retro and verbose style. More here and here.
Mashup maker Darth Blender chopped up bits and pieces of classic sci-fi, superhero, and fantasy footage to create an awesome retro take on the Avengers: Infinity War trailer, had the movie come out sometime in the late 1970s or early 1980s. I-ron Man is the best.

(PG-13: Language) The merc with a mouth paints us some happy little trees while channeling Bob Ross in this promo clip for the upcoming Deadpool 2, regaling us with witticisms and playing with his 2-inch brush. We think Pool looks rather smashing with a ‘fro, don’t you?
FINAL JUSTICE! Kaiyodo follows up its instant classic Wolverine action figure with Captain America. The 6.5″-tall action figure has an amazing 38 points of articulation. You can place its shield on its arm or on its back. It also comes with a bullet ricochet effect for the shield.

“Is there anyone who isn’t worthy of this horrible hammer?!” ArtSpear Entertainment makes the god of thunder even dumber than he is in this nicely animated spoof of the Thor: Ragnarok trailer. It’s still not as funny as the fact that we paid to see Thor 2 though.
Hot Toys keeps raising the bar for head sculpts. Their 12″ action figure of Yondu from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 looks exactly like Michael Rooker. It’s a shame it doesn’t come with extra heads. It does have the team’s jet pack, both of Yondu’s fins, his trusty arrow and more.
The Toys Asia’s life-size statue Iron Man’s Mk. 43 armor opens up to reveal, well, sadly not enough space for a man. It still looks amazing though. It takes 46 motors and 28 seconds for the armor to open up. The statue is limited to 50 units and costs… cough… over $370,000.
Hot Toys’ latest Iron Man action figure is based on Iron Man’s appearance in Spider-Man Homecoming. The 13″ tall figure has 28 LED light up points and has tons of interchangeable parts and accessories, including a new weapon that was hinted at in the movie’s trailers.
