<![CDATA[The Coolest Celebrity Autographs]]> http://ranker.com/list/celebrity-autographs/celebrity-lists This list features only the coolest and most impressive celebrity autographs. They say that you can tell a lot from someone's signature, but with most celebrities, all you can tell is that they are in a hurry. However, a few famous people take the time to make their autographs special and unique. Some add a fun doodle to their signatures, while others have beautiful penmanship.

Who is the most famous person with a notable autograph? Madonna sometimes makes an autograph extra special, by adding a lipstick kiss. Her actual signature is long and loopy, which is also fun for collectors. Kanye West is an artist in every sense of the word and even creates a fun doodle when signing his autograph.

Several celebrities just focus on their initials when signing autographs. Brad Pitt's autograph is simple, but effective. He makes sure that the "B" and the "P" are clear, but the rest is unidentifiable. Similarly, Joey Fatone balances the "J" in his first name with the "F" in his last to create an interesting autograph.

Which celebrity autograph do you think is the coolest? Vote up the most awesome celebrity signatures below.

<![CDATA[The Best Spider-Man Comic Book Writers]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-spider-man-writers/ranker-comics Comic book writers are oftentimes some of the most under-appreciated artists. Every panel, every speech bubble, every thought, and every plot arc that's created in comic books is thanks to the writers. Not only do these stories need to be pumped out at breakneck speeds, they need to be well written, with deep, meaty stories, and huge character development. They need to keep the villains fresh and dynamic, and have smaller plot lines within each issue in addition to the overall story arc. It's a complicated process.

Top that off with pressure from publishers and millions of adoring fans, and you've got writers who are constantly under the gun and cranking out their most creative thoughts at will. That, my friends, is working under pressure.

Let's tip our hats to the people who keep us fans coming issue after issue, year after year to some of the greatest writing the comic book world has ever seen. These are the best of the best, the ones who make all of those wonderful web-slinging memories, these are the greatest Spider-Man writers of all time.

These are things everyone should know and should have figured out before they become full-blown adults and have families of their own. 
Many of the items on this list are skills every man should have and that every woman should know in order to feel confident and self-reliant. The more life skills you have, the easier it is to take chances and strive for greatness. Some skills people should have are simply practical--like knowing how to swim, build a fire or drive a manual transmission. These skills are relatively easy to learn and are based on facts you should know. Other of the life-skills on this list are more subtle and need to be learned over time--how to tell a good story, negotiate and set a longterm goal and meet it are examples of these skills. 

Since we all have different priorities in life and we all value skill sets differently, this list is an open list where users can add what they think everybody should know before 30 and vote for what they think.

From abandoning his own pet monkey in Germany to showing up with a 20-person entourage to guest-host SNL, the Biebs has done quite a few questionable things in recent history. There comes a time in most young famous peoples' lives when their "acting out" incidents become more and more frequent, and the public reaction starts to move away from, "Aw, he probably didn't know any better," to "Ah! What a douchebag!"

Is Justin Bieber a douchebag? Obvs, this depends on who you ask. Devoted fans –Bielebers and those who have Bieber-fever would (or course) say that he is not. But what about the general public? Is spitting in your neighbor's face, threatening paparazzi, and refusing to pay for services that you used enough reason to call someone a douche? Is he actually one of the biggest douchebags in Hollywood? Or is he just acting how any other young person would in these circumstances? Does the Biebs deserve a little slack since he is from Canada and new to all of this fame? 

You can use this list of douch-ey JB moments to make your own decision and judge for yourself. Vote on your favorite d-bag move by the ever-popular teenage heartthrob/popstar, and share with your friends to see what they think.

The clothes make the man (or woman) and all that. Things to consider in outfitting your hero are: the costume's ability to disguise its hero's secret identity, translation of powers to costume, color schemes, team affiliation, (theoretical) practicality, and, of course, looking awesome.

Many of these heroes, in addition to being clad in some of the most iconic suits in the world, have had so many other, supplemental costumes. For example, you see the Spider-Man costume or even a part of it, mask, chest, anything and it's instantly recognizable. Beyond that main outfit, the black suit is almost just as well known. In comics, sometimes an alternate suit can become a fan favorite, and be made canon too.

All of these variations have served their individual purposes throughout the years. These are the best alternate costumes of the Marvel Superheroes. Vote up the best alternate Marvel comic book character costumes.

This list features the times that Marvel has taken liberties with fan-favorite comic book characters, changing them for the worse, and for no good reason. What are the worst, most unnecessary character changes in Marvel comics history?

We're not talking about deaths, or alternate universes (including the Ultimate Universe), or silly temporary transformations (Cap-Wolf, Man-Spider, Spider-Hulk, Six-Armed Spider, etc.). These are the changes that lasted more than an issue and that were meant to (at least for a while) change the status quo of the character.

It's important to mix it up with characters, to change them, and to keep them fresh, but you must remember to stay true to their core when doing so, like what they stand for and what about their character makes them so beloved. 

Below are the times Marvel has changed a character... for no good reason at all.

They've come such a long way in the last decade or so that people who could only maybe point out Batman or Spider-Man know how Thor speaks or that Namor is kind of a dick.

Springing from this surge in pop culture awareness came an amazing series of conversations from hero to hero. What would Thor text Captain America if he was at Target? Do any Avengers often forget their grocery lists? How does Namor text with Sue Storm? Now we can know these and other pressing matters!

<![CDATA[Comic Book Characters We Want to See on Film]]> http://ranker.com/list/comic-book-characters-we-want-to-see-on-film/ranker-comics Certain comic book characters definitely lend themselves to film better than others.

Sometimes it's their costume, or their power-set being cinematically dynamic (how Hydroman made this list), or how necessary they are to the universe, or even to a specific storyline. Many heroes and villains out there deserve their turn in the limelight. With Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel showed no character is too obscure to delight fans, and with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Dark Knight they proved that you really can have multiple villains work in a film... unlike the disasters that are Spider-Man 3 and Batman & Robin.

From Fan Favorites (Carnage!) to how-do-they-not-have-a-movie-yet?! (Doctor Strange, and yes we know it's eventually coming but it's not here yet), these are the comic characters we want to see on film. We also added characters that need to be redone in the comic book film industry (Deadpool... among others).

And he's terrifying. The worst Mickey Mouse pictures, though, were taken at the very inception of Disneyland. The old walkabout characters and depictions of Mickey Mouse himself were absolutely terrifying at the beginning of The Happiest (scariest?) Place on Earth. Mickey Mouse's first appearance to the park goers of the world wasn't the lovely, sing-songy rodent we've all come to know and love, it was a plastic-faced, dead-eyed and horrifying representation of something that may or may not be a demon from hell. 

So here, in one place, are the best, funniest, and most scary Mickey Mouse pictures in the world (on the internet). Vote up the most horrifying Mickey Mouse photos below and enjoy sleeping with the lights on tonight.

<![CDATA[The Best Characters Created by Stan Lee]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-characters-created-by-stan-lee/ranker-comics Stan "The Man" Lee is the most iconic and innovative comic creators of all time. He invented, or had a part in creating, over 339 (!) characters throughout his 50+ years in the comics industry. Which Stan Lee characters are the best? Now's your chance to vote and decide which Stan Lee comic book characters is the greatest.

Lee was responsible for ushering in the age of the realistic, down to earth, underdog type characters when the standard was the bright, shiny Superman type. They famously turned him down dozens of times when he brought them the idea of Spider-Man stating that not only was he too downtrodden, but that nobody liked spiders so it would never sell. The only reason Spider-Man (one of the most recognizable figures in the world) exists is that he snuck it into an already cancelled magazine, Amazing Fantasy, in their last issue and it sold like hotcakes.

So here, we acknowledge the man who's earned every single one of his Marvel movie cameos for his contribution to the world of comics. These are the best comic book characters created by Stan Lee

Typically royal families like to see their children marry fellow royals, but every once in a while a "commoner" sneaks into the castle. Some of these ladies and gents have become famous due to their royal spouses, while others were already famous in their own right before marrying into royalty.

Which normal people have married members of the royal family? Princess Diana is the most notable non-royal to have married royalty. Born Diana Spencer to John Spencer and Frances Roche, she married Charles, the Prince of Wales on July 29, 1981. The couple had two sons, William and Harry, before they divorced in 1996. Prince Charles previously dated Diana's sister, Lady Sarah, before beginning his courtship with his future wife.

While some outfits are as simple as something you'd buy at Wal-Mart for Halloween, the more experienced cosplayers make elaborate costumes worthy of their own starring role in a Hollywood production. For some women, however, the choice of female characters tends to be on the, shall we say, "light" side. As in slim. Most of the choices for female cosplayers are skinny bitches. There. Said it.

When it comes to cosplaying, all women were not created equal and there just happen to be some costumes that are a better fit for plus sized women. This isn't to say that a bigger girl CAN'T wear a Wonder Woman one piece, there are just simply SOME women who would rather dress up without showing off all the parts their maker gave 'em. For those women, there is this list of plus size cosplay costume ideas. 

What are some good costumes for plus sized women? What are popular plus size cosplay costumes? What are the best cosplay ideas for plus sized ladies? This list of costume ideas for big girls includes some of the best Comic-Con outfits AND some costumes for every day (read: party) use. This list of cosplay ideas for bigger women is far from exhaustive, but it's a good start if you're thinking about cosplaying without letting all your business hang out.

<![CDATA[Best Ways to Detox]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-ways-to-detox/dani-porter The best ways to detox are those tried and true methods to get rid of whatever toxins you may have in your body and increase your overall health. While these tips can all be used on a daily basis for overall increased wellbeing, as with any health advice you find on the Internet, be sure to consult your doctor before taking our word for it.

Detoxification, by definition, is the removal of toxic substances from the body. Many may want to detox from specific things, such as drugs, alcohol, and sugar, while others may want to detox for overall increased health and wellbeing or for weight loss, though the science to back up weight loss detoxification claims is highly disputed.

So what are the best ways to detox? Simply put, stop putting the toxins in your body and get rid of the ones you have. Stop drinking, smoking, or doing drugs. Drink a lot of water and eat only healthy, organic, and natural foods such as fruits, vegetables, and healthy grains. Get enough sleep, reduce stress and, perhaps most importantly, exercise sufficiently and regularly.

While there is no reason to skip any of these tips on a daily basis to lead an overall healthier life, if you're looking to detox, such as when your hangover after a long night of drinking is making you miserable, try these best ways to detox to get back to the living in no time.

Several famous actors, musicians, comedians, and politicians identify themselves as asexual.

Comedian Janeane Garofalo identifies herself as asexual in her stand-up act. She says, "I don't have a fear of intimacy, I have sort of a genuine lack of interest." Fashion consultant Tim Gunn is believed to be asexual. He has stated that he hasn't been in a relationship since the early 1980s.

Be it a scheduling conflict, inflated production costs, script disagreements, the studio wanting the film to go in a different direction, a similar film being released (or worse yet a similar film not doing well), there are endless reasons why movies stop mid pre-production (and more rarely, but still an occasionally, during production itself). Which comic book movies that didn't happen do you wish you could see?

There was a time when comic movies were NOT considered bankable. Thanks should be given to the vastly underrated (and as such not given nearly enough credit for ushering in the superhero film movement) first Blade film, as well as Sam Raimi's Spider-Man, Bryan Singer's X-Men, and Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins. They all allowed the genre to become the powerhouse it is today.

There have been some follies, LXG, Spider-Man 3, Batman & Robin, and many more all went through endless hoops and sign offs and still got made, but overall, the Comic Book Film is consistently entertaining and a generally welcome addition to any theatre marquee.

These are the comic book movies that never made it for whatever reason, the films (or film ideas) that started and stopped in various stages of development before they graced the screen.
