Matt Harvey, the New York Mets ace, has been going by the nickname “The Dark Knight” since early 2013—the name stuck after Sports Illustrated put Harvey on the cover of its May 20, 2013 edition along with the copy, “The Dark Knight of Gotham.” In retrospect, this may have a bit of a premature move, not because he…
U.S. high jumper Inika McPherson finished 10th in the Olympic final, finishing second for Team USA behind Chaunte Lowe. She cleared 1.93 meters, but missed three attempts at 1.97 meters.
Playground folk culture is oddly, comfortingly consistent. Small children laugh themselves stupid over the same dumb material, then grow up and move on while their dumb jokes and rhymes stay behind, to be discovered by new generations. So my four-year-old came back from baseball day camp singing an old familiar song:
Even if you didn’t see Suicide Squad and somehow escaped the reviews of it and, like, also didn’t hear the horror stories about Jared Leto’s Joker, you’d already know that it would never have topped Heath Ledger’s Joker in The Dark Knight anyway.

There’s a reason Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice went with that slightly wordy title. In addition to featuring a showdown between the two DC heavyweights, Zack Snyder’s film was largely created to help set up a bigger DC Extended Universe. How exactly did it do that? We’ve got you covered.
A fun thing you could do during the two and a half hours you spend watching Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is count the number of times some rando blurts out something like “It’s uninhabited!” or “It’s after five, so downtown’s nearly empty right now!” whilst Batman and/or Superman throw various bad guys (and/or…

A few days ago, many people were shocked—shocked!—at a pair of new studies that found that many Americans have authoritarian tendencies. They want a strong leader, who can sort out “those” people.

(Sure, you feel cool, and that’s all that…
Tyson Fury, a British boxer who is set to get his face punched off by Wladimir Klitschko, thought it would be cool to dress up like Batman for the pre-fight press conference and wrassle with another guy who dressed up like the Joker.
As the title suggests, the upcoming stupid-ass movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will feature Batman and Superman opposing each other, at least for a while, before they inevitably come together to form what will become the Justice League of America. I do not follow this garbage film franchise, because it is…
