“Oh, I am Zee Sad Supair Villain, No?”: Evan Dorkin pities The Gray Gargoyle; Chris Butcher hosts. Maybe sorta NSFW-ish…?
“Star-spangled, earnest, and totally a product of World War II. That description could be referring to either Captain America or Wonder Woman…”: Writing for i09.com, Charlie Jane Anders meditates on the similarities between Cap and Wondy, and ponders why the former is getting his movie made, while the latter’s had trouble even getting a TV show off the ground.

How did they narrow it down to just eight?: “The 8 Most Awkward Sexual Moments in Comic Book History”

Batman is so much fun, and that is why everyone makes comics about him”: That’s from Kate Beaton’s explanation for why she did a half-dozen, three-panel gag strips featuring Batman under the title “The Adventures of Sexy Batman.” Sometimes I feel a little weird linking to Beaton’s comics like, every single week.

So far we’ve seen Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Sexy Batman.
