?As god is my witness, I honestly don’t which new pic makes me more excited for X-Men: First Class. I do know this — these pics are the only thing that make me want to still see the movie after I watched the TV spot with Lil’ Mystique (after the jump), which terrified the shit out of me. She’s like a Smurf and a Cenobite gave birth a Cabbage Patch Kid. I keep waiting for her to jump out of my computer so she can eat my face and then shit on my skull. (Via Gamma Squad)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
