Welcome to TV's only source for all the stuff you care about from the coolest viral videos to the hottest new gadgets, comics and movies. Attack of the Show gets it before it gets out.

The List

Wouldn't it be great to date a comic book hottie, to finally be able to go out with a flesh and blood version of the ink and paper super babes you've been pining over since your adolescent years? Sure it would, unless you picked the wrong one. Not every babe in a cape and cowl would make a good girlfriend. Quite the contrary. Some of them would make outright rotten love interests. In honor of Valentine's Day, a day dedicated to true love and romantic union, we've come up with a list of the top five female comic book characters you should never date (presuming you got the chance through some miracle of science or more likely, the bestowal of a magical ring or other mystical artifact).
Crack The Spine: The Top 5 Female Comic Book Characters You Should Never Date
Power Girl
This buxom super heroine is every nerd's dream, but for all practical purposes she'll have to remain just that. Being Superman's cousin, Power Girl's essentially the busty, female equivalent of the Man of Steel. So, unless you've got the stamina of The Flash and the muscle mass of a juiced up Bane (or a bed sprinkled with flakes of Kryptonite), there's no hope of satisfying her in the sack or even surviving a sexual encounter without ending up in a hospital bed. It really makes you wonder how Lois Lane continues to have nuptials with Clark Kent.

 

Crack The Spine: The Top 5 Female Comic Book Characters You Should Never DateEmma Frost
The last thing you want in a healthy relationship is a controlling partner. As such, the one time White Queen of the Hellfire Club turned X-Man, Emma Frost is high up on the no-date list. The sultry telepath has a lengthy track record of using her mutant powers to manipulate or literally control her enemies, allies and even lovers. Furthermore, if you're the jealous type, you'd eventually tire of seeing Ms. Frost parade around in attire that would make a fem dom blush.

 

 

Crack The Spine: The Top 5 Female Comic Book Characters You Should Never DateBomb Queen
She's great for a one night stand, but this libidinous magister of the explosive arts has a very fragile psyche and an incredible temper. What she lacks in clothing she makes up for in pure, psychotic rage. The moment you made her unhappy, she'd blow you to pieces, and not in a way you're hoping.

On an average day, nobody likes watching the commercials for a television program. On Super Bowl Sunday, the commercials are the best part. With the big game just around the corner, we’ve decided to take a look back at the greatest commercials in Super Bowl history.


1. Apple (1984)


Apple’s 1984 ad from, you guessed it, 1984 is probably the most recognized Super Bowl ad of all time. It’s clever, intense, and most importantly, original. No sexual innuendo, no over-hyped shock value. It blurs the heavy line between product advertisements and pure entertainment and for that one minute, you forget you’re watching a commercial. Plus, being an Apple commercial, it is totally ironic and hipster. A commercial about not following the crowd, being an individual, and buying an Apple product. LOLZ. Love it.

AOTB's Super Bowl Prediction!

AOTB's Super Bowl Prediction!

Unless you've spent the past week and a half in stasis, or in a Mrs. Winterborne-type coma, you know that Sunday brings with it the game-of-all-games, the Super Bowl. This year's combatants, the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers, are two storied franchises with long histories that make them two of the most important teams in the history of the sport.

Every year, here at G4tv.com, we make our predictions for who will win the game. Usually, as in last year's Feed article, it's based on videogames and what they might tell us about the future. We're down with that idea at Attack of the Blog, but we wanted to try something a little less scientific, namely comparing aesthetic points of the cities of Pittsburgh and Green Bay themselves, to see which one was truly worthy of winning the title.

If Gamers Gave The Oscars

As he has since ancient days, this morning, Tsulvoth, The Mighty God of Hollywood, opened his gargantuan throat and vomited the list of nominees for the 2011 Academy Awards. (All hail Tsulvoth!) As usual, this year’s nominees are mostly flicks that are pretty good and made money, spiced up with a few movies that are very good and didn’t.

Other than the surprisingly solid Toy Story 3 tie-in game, none of the movies nominated this year have accompanying video games, but it’s still possible to “play” them, with a little imagination. We got together with our sister blog, Attack of the Blog, and compiled the following list of games that are equivalent to this year’s academy award nominees.

Wii Punch Out!!

The Fighter: This film tells the story of "Irish" Micky Ward, an amateur boxer from Boston who eventually went pro. Though no game exactly captures Ward's difficult struggle with repeated disappointment and the turmoil caused by his brother's tragic drug addiction, in Punch-Out!! for the Wii, you do get to play as a white guy (Little Mac) who beats up cartoonish characters based on harmful, racist stereotypes. No game is truer to both the spirit of Boston and professional boxing.

Top Five Trolls in American History

Posted January 20, 2011 - By Moye Ishimoto

Today on Around the Net, we declared a War on Suck against the most pointless news report ever: Internet trolling. Where have these people been? In celebration of this battle against a we-can't-believe-this-is-a-headline topic, we thought we'd run down some of our favorite trolls in the history of mankind.

Top Five Trolls in American History

5. The Troll from Three Billy Goats Gruff

The story of Three Billy Goats Gruff represents the quintessential fairy tale: for one thing, there are talking goats. But with three different animals trying to outsmart a hungry villain, we learn the moral about greed and wit, where size and power can overcome even the scariest monster. Wait, that's the lesson, right? I don't know, I never really paid attention to this stuff. Though this troll found a grisly end inside the big billy goat's belly, he represents what all trolls strive to be: fearful, hungry and ugly.
