PiracyWatch: Megaupload is shut down by the US – which shows that authorities don’t need SOPA or PIPA to target internet piracy. Now all they have to do is close down the forty Megaupload-wannabees.
AngelWatch: Axel Alonso talks about that Archangel/Daredevil AVX teaser image.
Nothing should be read into that teaser image. It was commissioned BEFORE “X-Force” #18 came out and we weren’t even sure when we’d release it.

The Legend Ends. The terrorist leader Bane will arrive in Gotham City, pushing it and the police force to their limits, forcing Batman to resurface after taking the fall for The Joker’s crimes. The Dark Knight Rises movie will be coming this Summer and this Bane Collectible Figure will be launched in coming months before movie launches! Batman fans, please stay tuned!

Here are a couple of toy concept and prototype photos from The Dark Knight Rises, which Hot Wheels filed with the FCC today. Below, we get a look at The Bat-Pod, The Tumbler, and The Bat (formerly known as the Batwing) via concept drawings, as well as an early prototype of The Tumbler. These three vehicles will be small remote controlled toys, all available this summer in lieu of the film’s July release. Check them out below.
Just a few minutes ago, the toy manufacturer posted this teaser image on their Facebook page of The Dark Knight Rises’ Bane 1/6th Scale Collectible Figure.
