Bringing home a new pet affects all members of the household, so everybody, even the kids should be included in the discussion. The animal you decide to bring home, or in my case ‘sidekick’, will become a loving member of the family, so it’s essential that everybody is on the same page. You need to use common sense too; you shouldn’t buy a cat if you already have a pet mouse or gerbil in the home! Let’s take a look at ways you can choose the perfect pet for your family: Image Taken from Flickr How Much Time Does Your Family...

Bruce Banner was cursed with having two personalities after he saved a teenager from being killed by a gamma bomb, taking all of the force and radiation from the bomb.  The results of this accident as I am sure most of you will be aware is that when angered Banner would turn into a giant green monster, known as the Hulk.  It is actually a desperately a sad tale...

The title of this blog is definitely something I have considered at many times in my life since I first picked up a DC comic featuring either of these amazing superheroes.  I don’t think you can actually read through a comic, be sucked into the characters’ lives and not think about what you would do if you had their super powers.  Superman and Wonder Woman have...

I wouldn’t be surprised if most people in the world have heard of the mighty and heroic Superman at some point in their lives.  Ever since the first comics were published he has become an icon character in US history and his loved just as much across the globe.  If you have children that are big fans of the Man Of Steel then you may want to consider checking out...

Regardless of the reason for having the party, what girls and boys don’t like superhero parties?  If you want to throw a superhero themed party for your children and their friends, but don’t want to spend too much money then this post is ideal for you. Instead of focusing in on one particular trademarked superhero or superhero team, it is a nice idea to just refer to it as a Superhero Party.  By doing that you are keeping it all nice and general and do not have to stick to a particular colour scheme or picture on all the napkins,...

One of my, and many others, biggest bones of contention with comic books and their creators is the way that females are often portrayed in them.  They are normally over-sexualised and their bodies are often represented in an idealized, culturally acceptable way.  However, there are a few worthy exceptions of comic book superhero characters who are actually positive...
