How much are our favourite social Superheroes Tweets worth?

Being a celebrity geek isn’t easy. Being a social Superhero is even harder. Some of our favourite TV, Movie and internet friends have incredible Twitter accounts. Even though us, as fans, are particularly hard on our online Superheroes. Watching their every Tweet. Waiting for something to pounce on. I guess it’s the price you pay to be an internet hero hey?

The question is, how much would people actually pay. I was messing around online last night and decided to compare some of our favourite geek profiles on the Webfluential Influence Estimator. If you’re reading this blog i’m sure you know the likes of Will Wheaton, Batman himself, Stan Lee, The Mary Sue and even Tony Stark.

Lets run a little comparison and see what the price of social superhero life really is?

Stan Lee and Will Wheaton are cleaning up. Guess thats the value of being the real person behind the Twitter account.

You can estimate your own value by visiting Webfluential.com and using the estimator tool.

Technology makes for good internet hey 😉

Fun with a little madness these holidays :)

The festive season is around the corner. It’s the season for family and in our case, competitive board games for the whole family! Our sponsor for today, King Price, knows best about family values. One of the family values they live by is ‘fun with a little madness’ – I think my families board game obsession falls right into that world.

We don’t have much time together in the year but when we get those few days off we spend our spare cash on board games. I dig finding cheap hidden gems – like this Marvel Monopoly below. Granted it’s only cheap because we bought it in Hong Kong but still. It’s MARVEL Monopoly!

Getting the same insurance cover, but with super cheap premiums, allows us to consider that extra family board game for the Christmas holidays. Preferably one involving Superheroes 😉 But how are you meant to decide on the geekiest family board games to buy this festive season? Luckily we’ve done the research for you!

 

1. The Big Bang Theory board game

board game -  big bang theory

2. Batman Snakes & Ladders

board game - batman snakes ladders

3. Star Trek Uno

Hope you manage to dedicate some time to family fun these holidays. My family is into board games, yours might be into beach vibes. Either way, try not to let the budget stress get you down during the holidays.

Thanks again to King Price for supporting the geeks. If you want to support them in return AND save money at the same time, go here for a quick quote!

A Batman Burger at McDonalds. Only in Hong Kong!

Bleak they didn’t have these when i was in Hong Kong!

If you are a Justice League fan and you like McDonalds then you should move to Hong King RIGHT NOW. They are going to be rolling out a series of Justice League superhero meals and the first one goes to our favourite, Batman.

We al know South Africans love their flip flops. Sun. Beach. Hunters Dry and a pair of flip flops… a South African holiday in a nutshell.

Add some Superhero style and i’m in 😉

Peter Parkour

Peter Parkour. He probably isn’t the best parkour athlete you’ve ever seen but he is wearing a Spiderman suit. So that gets him a feature.

Have a good day all :)

How cool is this Vintage 1975 Marvel Calendar?

Vintage is kinda cool these days. Well at least that’s what the hipsters tell us.

Not sure if you knew this but calendars repeat periodically, every 28 years a year will start on the same day of the week as previous years 3 times. Because of this you can actually use vintage calendars from 1975 to navigate your way through this year. Obviously if the calendar was made by Marvel back in the 70’s you would be the most retro geek around.

Good news. I’ve found a calendar for us that you could print or save on your desktop, i’m thinking about framing these for my study even. It’s an original 1975 Mighty Marvel Calendar, click on the images for the high res version.

Let’s kick off 2014 with a Superhero breakfast!

Morning friendies. We’re back after a month of travelling, toy shopping, cycling and Disneylanding. Yip, i just made that word up.

Got some great content coming up this week. Pics from Disneyland, a review of the famous Hong Kong toy malls and even a discussion around the movies we’re excited for in 2014.

But for now, let’s just have some breakfast and get back into the swing of things…

Ladies. I have a Halloween gift for you.

Morning ladies. Hope you are feeling extra Halloweeny today.

I may or may not follow a board on Pinterest that just shows off hot geek guys. I’ve been DYING to share it with you but haven’t really had a reason. Halloween is reason enough right?

SORRY BOYS, close your eyes!

The Evolution Of Superhero Costumes

Superhero costumes have progressed faster than iPhone technology. Then again, what hasn’t? If you haven’t seen the parody video i posed this might not make sense. See it here.

Ok i’m sorry. I’ll stop making fun of Apple fans now.

Superheroes have been around for longer than most of us have been alive, and their appearances have changed pretty drastically over the years. Whilst sticking to their key elements, the advancement of technology and what can be produced has changed the way we see Superheroes today. I think the only major change is that Superman lost those iconic red underpants this year.

These are how the costumes of your favourite Superheroes have changed and evolved over the years.

The Green Lantern (1979, 2011)
