I've done that already. In City of Heroes, we called it alt-itis.

It's kinda funny that they put PedoMan* right in the center.

What the f*ck weird slide show is that? A full page reload every click? And can you scroll through the thumbnail? There isn't even a "next" button, just like 12 or so thumbnails along the bottom. Holy f*ck people need to get their sh*t together. Every website is turning into a piece of junk. Have you seen Engadget lately? Ugh.

Anyhoo...

See I am actually glad they haven't (they may be working one one or vehemently against it, I have no idea). I think it wrapped things up nicely at the end. The story that was told couldn't be repeated again, they can really only pull that once, so what would it be about? Another villain just turns it into a serial opera. Like another episode of a Saturday morning cartoon.
Maybe the kids grow up? They seemed well-adjusted and happy, not sure what stories you could tell unless you change one of their personalities.

However I'm a fan of not doing sequels ever, really. With the exception of a few (original SW, BTTF, etc), what happens is this:
-the first time they do a movie, it just comes together. They didn't try to do anything. They just; created.
-all of a sudden it's a hit, and gasp, they need to do a sequel. So then they start trying way too hard to re-create the magic, and it's almost just never as good as the first one.

Click the "view all" link below the article. You're welcome.

But the fact that it's not the default view is inexcusable.

Looking forward to FOLLOWUP when the task is actually completed.

Boooo they don't have it sorted for which day of the year gets which superhero, just posting dates on the linked blog.

I wanted to know my birthday hero. :(

It takes a real superhero to survive with a cape.

The view on the blog is a much better to look at the creations, which include dates and the names.

My favorite is "Think Thank" from November 17. Link

Is it me, or did there seem to be about half-a-dozen Venture Bros characters on that list?

Just my luck, the fat chick would be my birthday hero. Pretty sure I'm the guy underneath her arm there...

"This one jumped into my head today. I was thinking abou heroic imagery, the reluctant hero and self image. This would be an amazing hero to write for. A character who's super strong, bullet proof. But her power is connected to her weight. Man. Talk about power and responsibility..."

And yet DC/Marvel keep writing for the same dozen for 80 years...

Oh, Pixar?

Color me bored.

Where's the actual list a superhero for every day of the year? All I see is a slideshow with a dozen or so thumbnails.

Or maybe do what they've been doing with Woody and the gang: the shorts before other Pixar films shows what they're up to.

Why? I'd rather not see that and let me enjoy the timeless awesomeness that is the original.

/Also: Pixar rules.

Well the artists have to have SOMETHING to do since Pixar just wants to make sequels now.

What was Brave a sequel to, again?

even my non-comic reading sister in law is like 'dude, some of those are really cool'
