Smithsonian displays Wonder Woman’s invisible jet

Getting into the spirit of the day, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum has unveiled its limited exhibition of Wonder Woman’s invisible jet. Not content with a simple press release, the museum went all out for this April Fools’ joke, publishing an article and creating a video showing the jet’s installation and care.
The aircraft is purportedly on loan from the Museum of Flight in Seattle, which acquired it in April 2013 “with help from Lieutenant Diana Prince.”

“The trick for the National Air and Space Museum was to display the plane in its jet formation,” explains museum specialist Beth Wilson. “The plane has only been displayed publicly in the propeller configuration. The new design was made possible by the plane’s shape-shifting properties. Although The Museum of Flight staff was concerned about this formation change, they worked with our conservation staff so that the shift was safe and temporary. […] Other features on this jet include shape shifting, telepathic abilities, and multi-dimensional transport. Although the jet was invisible the passengers were not, and they often appeared to float on the clouds. It should be mentioned that even though Wonder Woman can fly under her own powers, the plane has come in handy when needed to transport Etta Candy and the Holliday Girls as well as Steve Trevor and others.”

1966 Batmobile Slot Car authentic, fantastic, incredible!

This is a very cool slot car track!
The legendary 1966 George Barris's Batmobile customized from a 1:32 kit by Polar Lights (Aurora) and turned into a powerful slot car! See it as you've never seen before, running on a Scalextric "Batman-ized" track, even from Batman's seat! Chassis, motor and silicone tires by A fan's tribute to the coolest car ever! POW! 

"Street" art, or at least in the driveway.....

^_^ INVISIBLE BAT SYMBOL ONLY SHOWS UP IN THE RAIN ;) Create a secret message or symbol that will only show up when it rains. You can create any comic book symbol or logo you want. This last a lot longer than you might think. It rained again today 3-26-15 … almost 3 months after I sprayed this … and it is still showing up great! I’ll post a pic I took today in the comments.

WWII-era Canadian comics full of home-grown superheroes!

 “Dixon of the Mounted” is one of numerous Canadian comic heroes who thrived during the Second World War.
Behold the raven-haired demi-goddess Nelvana, born of human woman and Koliak, god of the northern lights. With the power of light and heat, Nelvana battles the enemies of Canada’s north and, as alter-ego secret-agent Alana North, she protects us from the perils facing a country at war.
Arriving a few months before Wonder Woman, Nelvana was the first female comics superhero, and rode a wave of Canadian comics known as “Whites” (for their typically black and white interior pages).  
Nelvana was born to protect our borders in 1941, in response to the War Exchange Conservation Act (WECA), prohibiting the import of luxury items, including comic books, from the United States. But Nelvana was not alone. Between 1941 and 1946, Canadian kids (and other comic enthusiasts) feasted on the adventures of Johnny Canuck, Canada Jack, Tang the Wonder Horse, Brok Windsor, Dixon of the Mounted and many more.
Now, thanks to a generous gift from an anonymous donor, 119 of these rare and extraordinary works are part of the collection of the Ryerson University Library Special Collections. “It’s the holy grail of Canadian comics,” says Ryerson professor Andrew O’Malley. O’Malley’s current project, “Comic Books, Children’s Culture, and the Crisis of Innocence, 1940-1954,” was awarded an Insight Development Grant by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
