Tension Around The Avengers Is Tighter Than ScarJo's Crimefighting Suit

I felt my Spite-y senses tingling yesterday and, lo and behold, the internet erupted over this clumsy "Girl's Guide To The Avengers." The piece comes off as sexist and dumb and I'm not buying the editor's note that it was intended as satire. (Moviefone) For a non-fangirl take on the franchise, may I suggest this excellent piece over at Persephone Mag. Her rating system is what really sold it for me. (Persephone)

Some young man who has just discovered what it truly means to be in his bunk was given a lovely gift by his mother. The ribbon's a nice touch, mom. (Reddit)

You lovers of ladies might want to open that gift from mom for this next link of The Best Black Widow Cosplay. Why is that one girl, green? Comic book nerds, assemble and explain. (Unreality)

Speaking of true comic nerds, here's one who will be boycotting The Avengers. His argument seems very, um, long, and complicated. I'm hoping you true nerdlingers can dissect it for me. (Slate)

It's not all Avengers links today, I swear. For you frugal geeks, check out the awesome sale going on over at QMx. Me? I'm getting as many "Firefly" shirts as I can. (QMx)

Speaking of the height of fashion, check out this oddly adorable Very French Gangster photos. (MMM)

Speaking of adorable, you like cuddly baby animals, right? Check out THESE cute froggies (TYWKIWDBI) and then check out these even cuter baby critters. (ZooBorns)

Speaking of nature's abundance, they've unleashed the first images of the new Spider-Man villain. He, uh, looks just like you'd think a Lizard in a Lab Coat would look like. (Bleeding Cool)

Aaaaaand we're back to comic book movies. Check out Joss Whedon at the Gallery Show of Avengers artwork. (/Film)

But my favorite bit of fan art has to be this Birth Of Black Widow painting. Oh, Cap, you scamp. (HeroChan)

While we're on the subject of fan art, I adore these Summer Blockbusters re-imagined as Indie flicks. (Next Movie)

Gizmodo has a rendering of what it would look if a black hole were to devour a star. Spoiler alert: amazing. (Gizmodo)

And while we're on the subject of science, both MIT and Harvard are offering free online courses. . .get on that, Pajibaverse. Man's brain cannot live on pop culture references alone. (NYT)

Um, but if your brain has dined out on pop culture for the past twenty years or so, then you'll enjoy this "Perfect Strangers" video game. Final Level or BURST! (Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now)

If you haven't heard already, Ashton Kutcher released a sh*tty racist chip ad that was promptly pulled because of the aforementioned sh*tty racism. I also object to his sh*tty English and "German" accents. And, well, I really just object to Kutcher in general. (Celebitchy)

Finally, to cleanse your palate of all the spite, here's an amazing video of the Holi Festival of Colors. Unreal, no?
