Iron Man Arc Chest Light

There’s a friendly local gaming store in a certain southern city that has a man behind the counter who hates Iron Man. You cannot mention Iron Man in the presence of this guy without him flying off the handle for a good 20 minutes about how much he despises Tony Stark for all the things […]

“Remember that scene in that zombie movie where the people survive by adopting the mannerisms and speech patterns of the zombie horde? They walk right through the undead and nobody even notices them.

The Big Bubble Thing
