We Are Venom.


Sony Pictures has released the official teaser trailer for Venom, and it really is a true teaser as we don’t actually get to see the titular antihero in all his glory. Instead, we’re greeted with a variety of action beats featuring Academy Award-nominated star Tom Hardy battling the demon from within.  The footage also provides us with our first official looks at 4x Academy Award-nominee Michelle Williams, Primetime Emmy-winner Riz Ahmed, and several others, but we still don’t have an real idea as to who they’re playing.

Box Jellyfish


box-jellyfish_482_600x450

The infamous box jellyfish developed its frighteningly powerful venom to instantly stun or kill prey, like fish and shrimp, so their struggle to escape wouldn’t damage its delicate tentacles. Their venom is considered to be among the most deadly in the world, containing toxins that attack the heart, nervous system, and skin cells. It is so overpoweringly painful, human victims have been known to go into shock and drown or die of heart failure before even reaching shore. Survivors can experience considerable pain for weeks and often have significant scarring where the tentacles made contact. Box jellies, also called sea wasps and marine stingers, live primarily in coastal waters off Northern Australia and throughout the Indo-Pacific. They are pale blue and transparent in color and get their name from the cube-like shape of their bell. Up to 15 tentacles grow from each corner of the bell and can reach 10 feet (3 meters) in length. Each tentacle has about 5,000 stinging cells, which are triggered not by touch but by the presence of a chemical on the outer layer of its prey.

Box jellies are highly advanced among jellyfish. They have developed the ability to move rather than just drift, jetting at up to four knots through the water. They also have eyes grouped in clusters of six on the four sides of their bell. Each cluster includes a pair of eyes with a sophisticated lens, retina, iris and cornea, although without a central nervous system, scientists aren’t sure how they process what they see.

Super Heroes and Their Secret Identities


To be a superhero, you must usually have a secret identity, a “normal” personality with which you can blend in with the masses. The consequences of an enemy finding out their real-life identity could be most dire, oftentimes leading to the destruction of the hero’s alter-ego and/or the villain using a hero’s loved one(s) as bait. In some cases a Super-Hero chooses to keep their identity secret to avoid any legal ramifications (ex. Lawsuits) or public scrutiny that would ruin their life. Check out some of these illustrations.

The Minimalist Hero.


As super hero movies continue to dominate the summer blockbuster season, the graphic designers behind their poster seem to have been running the same circles.  The posters for Ironman 2 look quite similar to the Tron posters, which in turn, look strikingly like the classic Star Wars posters.  Designer Marko Manev has taken his time to turn the tables on this trend.  Take a look at his brilliant minimalistic super hero posters.
