Stan Lee, Legendary Comics Writer and Editor Who Co-Created the Marvel Universe, Dies at 95
Stan Lee, the legendary comic book writer and editor who helped redefine the medium when he co-created much of Marvel Comics’ vast library of characters and concepts, died Monday, according to THR. He was 95.

Working alongside fellow comics titans like Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby during the 1960s, Lee was instrumental in sparking what became known as “the Marvel revolution,” a shift in superhero comics that emphasized flawed protagonists expressing humanistic values. Concepts and plots remained as colorful and weird as ever. But Marvel characters, written with complex, realistic personalities and mundane private lives, often had to resolve family, dating and even financial challenges while protecting the public from an increasingly packed roster of supervillains.

This new approach to superhero comics debuted in “The Fantastic Four,” a team of superheroes presented as a dysfunctional but loving family unit that Lee co-created with Kirby in 1961. Lee credited his wife, Joan, for

American Horror Story: If This Is True, Michael Isn't the Antichrist and We've All Been Had

American Horror Story: If This Is True, Michael Isn't the Antichrist and We've All Been Had
As American Horror Story: Apocalypse nears its conclusion, it seems like we're finally going to get the confrontation we've been waiting all season for: the showdown between the last witches defending humanity and Michael Langdon, the powerful Antichrist. We've been assuming, since way back on Murder House, that Michael is indeed the Antichrist, born of a human woman and a ghost father. But what if we've had it wrong from the very beginning?

Reddit user zy-cray thinks so, at least. Digging deeper into the apocalyptic mythology that the season seems to be based on, this theory suggests that Michael is not, and never has been, the Antichrist. In the Bible, the Antichrist is harder to differentiate as evil at first; the whole point of his existence is that he is similar enough to the real Christ that many people believe he is the second coming of Christ. Michael, on the other hand,

The relationship between Prince Charles and Princess Diana was tumultuous, to say the least; they met after Charles first dated Diana's older sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, and only went on 12 dates before getting engaged in February 1981 and tying the knot five months later. By late 1992 (after collective affairs and embarrassing leaked audio conversations), Charles and Diana's 11-year marriage was a disaster - and the royal family couldn't hide it anymore.

Michelle Obama Shares 7 Surprising Things About Her Flotus Style
While we may remember and acknowledge the success of public-serving initiatives from our former First Ladies, when it comes to their legacy, fashion plays a major role. Many, including Michelle Obama and current Flotus Melania Trump, would say this is unfair as their presidential spouses do not have the same pressures or importance placed on their outfit choices. "I sighed sometimes, watching Barack pull the same dark suit out of his closet and head off to work without even needing a comb," Michelle wrote in an excerpt pulled from her new book and shared with Elle. As a female public servant, getting dressed requires so much more, including a professional stylist, long fitting sessions,...

Kelly McCreary Talks That Major Reveal and the Future of Jackson and Maggie on Grey's
To say that Jackson and Maggie have had a hard road on Grey's Anatomy would be an understatement. After all, they managed to survive Jackson's crumbling marriage with April, the fact that he up and ghosted (right after saying "I love you" to Maggie!), and his sudden spiritual awakening.

In the season's seventh episode, which aired Nov. 8, it didn't seem like she was up to the challenge.

Luckily, it doesn't seem like everything's over for the lovebirds. Kelly McCreary sat down with Popsugar to talk about the ins and outs of their big emotional breakthrough and what Maggie might be working through going forward. Don't give up just yet!

Though Not a Rule, the Queen Usually Hears Royal Baby Names First For This 1 Reason
We all know that the process of assigning names to royal babies is anything but simple (especially since they usually get three to four names). But what you might be surprised to hear is that - unlike most major royal decisions - the name doesn't necessarily need to meet the approval of the queen. Queen Elizabeth is always given the power of determining titles (even gifting Philip with a new title to celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary), and though her opinion is respected when it comes to determining a new child's name, her permission isn't required.

It's understood Queen Elizabeth doesn't have to approve of royal baby names, but traditionally (and out of courtesy), she is told the name before anyone else. As royal commentator Kate Williams explained to CNN, the names chosen by royal parents

Lorde Goes After Kanye West and Kid Cudi for Suggesting They
Lorde is taking some issue with Kanye West and Kid Cudi's most recent concert at Tyler, The Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw festival in Los Angeles.

In both instances, a transparent and enclosed stage-like area is suspended above the ground. Kanye and Kid Cudi were both in the box, whereas Lorde stood in front of it in her photos.
