In superhero news, here's the new Dark Knight Rises teaser:

I never really got into it, but I know they're some folks who did.

For those of you (gay) who like their heroes lovingly hand drawn with rippling muscles and too-square-for-real-life jaws , meet DC Comics' latest flightless, loveless space orphan, the superhero formerly known as Superman. How the mighty have fallen.

And since Ace already posted the other Captain America video today (see, I read the blog sometimes), some of you may be old enough to remember the old Captain America show:

That's all I've got. Now, FLY MONKEYS.
