You’ve heard the news. Betty Draper is the new Emma Frost in X-Men First Class. Or January Jones is, but at least 80% of the announcements called her Betty first, January second (and the last 20% had lines about January Frosting. So clever, right?). On the surface, Emma and Betty are quite similar. Underneath the surface they are nothing alike, and that makes it all the more interesting.
It is very unclear to me (and I’d venture a guess, to EVERYONE) what this movie is about. Emma Frost is not a “First Class” X-Men (meaning one of the first members of the team, whether or not she is First Class meaning awesome is up for debate and something of a polarizing topic for many fans — another similarity to Betty Draper, I’ll add). My favourite Emma is actually found in her solo title that featured her early years (circa First Class) but who knows what Emma this Emma is going to be so who knows if January is a good fit!

Continuing the theme of starlets who purport to read comics, here’s Miley Cyrus and her gadget of choice:

Knowing that Pattinson had it in the BAG, I think it was kinda mean of MTV to have Vanessa give out the award Zac was up for. And forcing the Kiss Cam on them without warning was even more awkward. But let’s talk about Vanessa’s dress:
The week is ending and my Oscar posts are done (Recap if you missed any), but the Academy Awards were not the only awards handed out this week — my co-conspirators and I over at Fantastic Fangirls presented the results of the first annual Fantastic Comic Book Awards aka the Fannies! And just one day after our post went up stating:
[Stephanie bounds on stage, dressed in a darling and age-appropriate purple frock, and grabs the microphone] about Fanny presenter (and nominee for Batgirl) Stephanie Brown, she showed up in Batgirl 8 dressed like so:
