It's not always exciting to be a superhero. There's downtime, when superheroes go back to their daily lives, screw around, play jokes on each other, and pass the day. Finally, we get to see all this recreated in collectible figures and slick photography.
Fan favorite Castle—and Firefly!—star Nathan Fillion was the guest of Conan O'Brien yesterday, and well, they've discussed things I didn't expect: DC and Marvel-themed nail polish.
If you're watching a movie and the main character takes a whole scene to get ready, there's a pretty good chance that shit just got real. Here's almost 100 characters getting ready for their Big Moment.

Why did Superman wear his frilly red underthings on the outside of his body stocking? The fine folks at Today I Found Out offer this simple, sensible explanation.
This year's superhero movies? They kind of suck—well, in comparison to last year's kickass superhero movies. What gives?
