Badass Digest reports
on the next step in Marvel's
ongoing cross-platform adaptation of their comic book properties to video media. Another example is that ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." will apparently crossover with both the new Captain America
movies, the later of which has also garnered some positive coverage from Badass
for reasons other than the crazy aggressive experimental delivery plan.

Short film of climber
Dan Osman scaling Lover's Leap in California without ropes, racing over 400 vertical feet in just under four & a half minutes. Link goes to direct wmv download. Having never heard of Osman before, I was shocked to find out that his daredevil ways led to an early death when a rope snapped
while Osman was performing a modfied form of bungie jumping in Yosemite back in 1999.

When headlines go bad (Part the Nth)
With a headline like, "Daredevil Carried From Ice Cell After 2-1/2 Days," you'd think it was about Matt Murdock, Marvel Comics' Man Without Fear (tm), after a fight with Mr. Freeze... But no, just some guy in an ice block for a publicity stunt. Shame, really...
