Mickey Mouse The Barbarian

Mickey, what is best in life?

Gosh... crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women. Ha ha!

Even as a muscled out mouse, I imagine Mickey would still be sickly sweet.

Bond Vs. Bond

This is a fantastic idea for a James Bond film. From ninjaink:
"Only the Good Die Twice is a spy story set within the fictional James Bond universe. Through the prologue, it is revealed that the name "James Bond" is the codename for agents with 007 status and that the original James Bond from the Cold War (played by Sean Connery in a returning role) has gone rogue and is now the head of SPECTRE. The current Bond is tasked by MI6 to stop him before he can initiate a global thermonuclear war."

Daniel Craig vs Sean Connery? That would be awesome!

How Spider-Man Saved Christmas

Of course the down side is that the Grinch never learns his lesson, his heart never grows three sizes and he continues to terrorize the Who's for years,because nobody that gets caught by a superhero ever seems to remain in captivity.

The Breaking Bad Mashups We Deserve

These are two Breaking Bad mashups I've had sitting around, finally getting to them. Above: Jeff Matsuda, producer and creative director on The Batman, drew a pile of mashups for an awesome Reddit thread. Below, Dann Matthews brings The Muppets into the world of meth, where I'd always assumed they'd been for the past few years.

BBC's Sherlock Characters Interrogate Internet Cats

I don't know anything about the BBC show Sherlock, but I do love internet cats, especially when they are all bunched together. Thanks Tumblr, for bringing reapersun to my attention.

Marvel Vs. A Christmas Story: You'll Shoot Your Adamantium Eye Out!

"Are you kidding? Stick my tongue to that stupid Iceman? That's dumb."
"That's 'cause you know it'll stick." (For reference)

They must have triple-dog dared him. (Logan Takes a Bet by Jason Welborn for draw2d2's lastest mashup.)

Of course the Hulk has a different way to handle things. (Hulk by Alex Ryan)

Awesome! I love A Christmas Story. (Wolverine by Justin Hansen)

Batman's Last Supper

There are enough Batman characters to make their own Last Supper? Clearly, yes. It's times like this that I have to admit my comics knowledge is puddle deep. Apparently that is Nightwing in the Judas position, but wasn't who the artist, Glasmond, had intended. Anywho the Latin translates to family comes before all things or family over everything.

How The Sesame Street Gang Felt About The Muppets

You just know they had to be a little bitter. Sure, they're famous, but they're not stars like The Muppets. And before anyone points out that they are all Muppets, including Yoda and the Fraggles, when anyone says The Muppets, they mean The Muppet Show. (Brought To You By The Letter A by Ian Abando for the Lovers, Dreamers & Me show)

The Archie Breakfast Club

A brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel and a recluse. A great rendition of the Breakfast Club as the Archies, bit I think Mike Perkins got the characters around.

If anyone should be playing Molly Ringlwald (and sorry, I don't think of them by their character names) it should be Veronica, not Betty. Spoiled rich girl? That's Veronica.

Reggie as Emilio Estevez seems to work but he really should be playing Judd Nelson while Archie should be be Estevez. He's always wearing a letterman jaclket. And Jughead should be playing Ally Sheedy, so that makes Betty the nerdy Anthony Michael Hall. (Via 50 Archie Covers)

Los Rebeldes Feroces!

"A long time ago in a country not so far away, the hope of freedom was kept alive by eight brave and honourable luchadors known as Los Rebeldes Feroces!"

Seriously, El Robo Diablo? Someone found a way to make C-3PO look cool. (Chris McVeigh & Matthew Parsons, via Distracted by Star Wars)

Secret Agent Calvin Hobbes

What if Calvin grew up to be a secret agent? You don't have to wonder, Coran Stone has done it for you: "I thought of Calvin as a boy who grew into a man and never gave up on imagining himself as different characters."
