I’m sure you’ve all thought it at some point – what would Wolverine look like in drag? I mean, he wears spandex so I don’t think it’s too far fetched to imagine him in a dress…
Well neither did David J Prokpetz. Since Marvel is now a part of Disney, he thought hey hey, Wolverine is totally meant to be a princess – and he should be dressed as such. So he commissioned some Tumblr artists to do it and…well…it’s magical.
This is apparently a first instalment of a series that will be premiering in America on October 28th after Conan in a show called “The Pete Holmes Show”.
Professor X tries explaining to Wolverine that his powers are a liability in this sketch that debuted during “The Pete Holmes Show” panel at New York Comic Con.
Did you like this sketch? Be sure to watch more installments of “Ex-Men” on the “Pete Holmes Show.” We premiere on October 28th after “Conan,” and we’ll be on weeknights at midnight/11 central.
It’s pretty funny – and let’s admit it, there’s a nugget of truth here. Though he doesn’t seem to mention the fact that Wolverine’s ACTUAL mutant power is his rapid healing, not the adamantium skeleton (that was installed later, because of his healing ability) but still…gave me a good chuckle.
Because I hate Wolverine.
Yes, I said it. Jean Grey all the way baby! Telekinesis is totally the most awesome power. And she’s telekenetic AND psychic. Boom.
And then Storm. Because Aurora is such a damned badass. Go watch X-Men: The Animated Series and you’ll see the awesomeness that is Storm – “I SUMMON THE ARTIC WIIINNNNDDDDDSSS.” Love that crazy chick.
This is a fan trailer, and a wonderful example of why there should be a Wonder Woman movie. They say there’s not enough content to create a solo movie for Wonder Woman? Well considering how they’ve mauled every other superhero movie, I don’t think that’s a real problem. The comics didn’t sell well when they first came out? Hello – the rise of feminism has seen an entire generation of female geeks, not to mention feminist men, who are dying to see a Wonder Woman film now…we’re a very different society from when the comics first came out.
The care and effort that has gone into this trailer is the proof.
Make a Wonder Woman movie already! (And not just as one of the characters in the Justice League!)
I’ll just leave these here. I don’t think I really need to say much more, do I?
The new season of “Arrow” begins on the CW (in the USA) on October 9th. I can’t wait for it.
Geekery with man-candy? Yep, I like this show…a lot.

Seems like publicist Gary Miereanu is the one to watch for Justice League fans. Just over a fortnight ago in late August, Miereanu tweeted the first of two images so far from Warner Home Video’s work-in-progress, “Justice League: War“. The animated feature will follow the events of the JL comic’s first volume, “Origin” and is set for release in early 2014.
Fans of the comics shouldn’t necessarily expect a blow-by-blow replica, however, given the latest reveals from Warner Home Video’s representatives. Miereanu’s first reveal showed that (comic) Batman’s iconic cowl received a few adjustments for the movie, most noticeably the addition of a jaw-fitting chinstrap.
DC’s self-dubbed ‘Super PR Guy’ has since caused further stir with the latest promo pic, in which Wonder Woman appears to have undergone a complete makeover.
The star-spangled bodysuit we’ve come to recognise seems to have been traded in for a sleek new look, still with the general shape of the heroine’s old costume but with some new touches:
Diana now sports a colour scheme more like Captain America’s, replacing gold with metallic silver. Her arm guards remain relatively unchanged, but navy spandex now extends out from underneath, covering the backs of her hands and nearly her entire arm. The ‘V’ at her hips has sunk a little lower and we’re now missing the bold double ‘W’ on her chest, which is now a more subtle shape more similar to a thin plane or bird. Her hair, much longer than usual, has been wisely tied back – obviously to avoid the distraction in combat. Finally, the cleavage of her previous outfit has been ditched altogether in favour of a smooth high-neck collar.
The new outfit retains a sexy edge but is definitely a more modern, practical change for the Amazon Princess.
Excitingly, it appears that Wonder Woman has also upgraded her arsenal! Something not being discussed nearly enough is the nearly-hidden hilt and blade tucked away in the background of the shot. Subtly placed behind her, the sword at her hip seems to have evaded the inquisitive eyes of most – but didn’t make it past us! What could easily be a broadsword or a claymore now sits alongside her famous golden lasso – one part of Wonder Woman’s old equipment which we’re happy to see has made it into her modern gear. Given the powers of her trusty lasso, we at GayGeek hope that any fantastical properties of this sword will make it fit for a warrior princess.
