And yet another thing within Excalibur.  Clearly the British singing show X Factor stole more than a Marvel Comic series name.  They also copied Excalibur’s judge panel set up.  I mean the nerve!

Let’s take a ride on Pirates of the Caribbean shortly after the ride opened in 1967. The original “Lust” sequence is still in place. I also have the original ride audio if you want to give it a listen!

Obit of the Day: The Creator of Slush Puppie
Over a six-pack of beer Will Radcliff, his sister Phyllis, and their mother Thelma, tried to come up with a name for a new frozen drink that Mr. Radcliff wanted to sell. Sitting on the front porch of their Cincinnati home, the Radcliffs wrote down names on a brown paper bag. When they finished, “Slush Puppie” was the consensus choice - and for millions of children history was made.
Mr. Radcliff had discovered a company that manufactured “slush” drinks, which was nothing more than a drinkable snow cone. Although the beverages had a history dating back to the 1950s, no one had successfully marketed them. (ICEE and Slurpee were invented in the 1950s and 1960s, respectively, but were made with carbonation so they are slighlty different.)
Happening upon a Wisconsin-based manufacturer of the slush machines, Mr Radcliff decided to re-brand the drinks and distribute them nationwide. With $970, “[b]ecause that’s all I had,” Mr. Radcliff began creating a network of Slush Puppie distributors across the United States. 
Originally available only in cherry, grape, orange, and lemon-lime, as of 2014 Slush Puppies are available in 41 flavors including cotton candy, mango, and kiwi-strawberry. 
Slush Puppie was a hit and sales doubled every year after the product was introduced to the public in 1971. By the late 1990s, Mr. Radcliff oversaw a Slush Puppie empire that had 160 U.S. distributors as well as 65 others in countries such as Greece and Saudi Arabia. The company was purchased from Mr. Radcliff in 2000 by Cadbury/Schwepps for $16.6 million, and later purchased by ICEE Co. 
Will Radcliff, who drove around in a car with the license plate “I SLUSH,” died on September 18, 2014 at the age of 74.

fuck you ellen, trying to play me like that, i trusted you, watch your back, this ain’t over

Don’t make promises you can’t keep Ellen.

The problem with children is that they’re not nearly as gullible as we think they are. The bastards.

Mind you, Callum does genuinely think that ice-cream vans play their music when they’ve run out of ice-cream…

Wonder Woman casually hands Mjolnir to Thor

One of the highlights in a not brilliant crossover (although I love the Amalgam comics).

Oh man. I had forgotten ’90s Makeover Thor’. There were some real costume missteps for the Avengers around that time.

Great scene though.

The twins. Sooner or later, they will meet the twins. It’s not a world of spies anymore. Not even a world of heroes. This is the age of miracles. There’s nothing more horrifying than a miracle.

A breakdown of medieval armor, since a lot of pieces are required to create a full suit.
