10 Most Convincing UFO Stories From May 2015
25 May 2015 12:40 AM, PDT
The above image highlights the good and the bad of the current era of ufology. For a while, a groundbreaking photograph that possibly showed a Roswell alien corpse was rumored to exist. The owners of the slide in question waited until earlier this month for their big reveal.
Underwhelmingly, the Kodachrome slides were no smoking gun after all and turned out to be quite a bust. When screenshots of the slides were inadvertently leaked through a promotional video, scrutiny abounded.
When the reveal finally happened all hopes of an authentic 1940’s image of a deceased alien turned out to simply be a picture of a mummified child. A blurred placard next to the creepy looking being became unblurred, proving it was a mummy. The picture was simply taken in a museum.
The bad in this situation is that it is easy for anyone to create a buzz out of literally nothing. »

Batman: Arkham – Ranking The 10 Greatest Villains So Far
25 May 2015 12:30 AM, PDT
Across thirty main games and plenty more secondary roles, the crown jewel of all of Batman’s appearances is undoubtedly the Arkham series; where starting with 2009’s Arkham Asylum, developers Rocksteady and Warner Brothers stunningly recreated a world that has been revamped and overhauled since the 1940’s.
What makes the Arkhamverse so rich and immersive is Batman’s unparalleled Rogue’s Gallery, and in the Dark Knight’s illustrious history, it is the villains who mainly drive the action and intrigue of the comics, films and games.
The Arkham games are so appealing to die-hard Gothamites because no detail is too small to be included and no villain is too obscure to be mentioned. While criminals like Maxie Zeus and Ratcatcher merely pop up on signs and billboards, tertiary foes like the Mad Hatter, Victor Zsasz and Firefly have significant in-game roles.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Rihanna
24 May 2015 11:46 PM, PDT
Feisty singer Rihanna has recently made headlines in a legal battle (that no one can really believe is actually happening) against DC Comics in an attempt to trademark the name Robyn. Why is this, you ask? Well, you may not know this, but Rihanna’s first name is actually Robyn. She’s filed a trademark request for the name in order to use it as a title for her upcoming fashion and cosmetics franchise.
As if this woman hasn’t got enough money already…
Regardless, she’s going ahead with it. Thing is, DC don’t like it, because the name Robyn is too close to that of Batman’s sidekick Robin – and they’re fighting against the threatening trademark in case comic consumers confuse Rihanna’s make up with their own boy wonder.
