A lot of epic stuff went down at Comic-Con (check out Morning Brew for all of the lezzie/bi shenanigans), but the most heroic thing to happen all weekend was a counter-protest by fanboys and fangirls against those fools from Westboro Church. Fred Phelps & Co. were torn out of the frame because comic book readers spend too much time idolizing Batman. Their response? “God Hates Nerds” signs. The nerd response? “Superman Died For Your Sins” and “God Loves Gay Robin” signs.
Heroes 1, Haters 0.

Like, I couldn’t even enjoy Allison Janney is how bad it was. But Bynes is back and the world is right and She’s the Man will be playing at my house all week. (Bring your own popcorn.)
