I’m not sure when the Taiwanese animated news team NMA decided to animate things other than news stories, but it appears to be about the same time they lost their minds (well, lost their minds more). This new clip is ostensibly an Avengers trailer, which involves Loki taking Scarlett Johansson’s recently leaked nude pics, Iron Man doing a mound of cocaine, Sam Jackson handing out what appears to be Transformers scripts, the worst CG model of Joss Whedon ever coming down and — you know, I’ll just let you watch it. I will say this, though: If Loki did release the ScarJo pics, he’s the greatest hero the world has ever seen. (Via Comics Alliance)
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.
