I always have a soft spot for the teenage Avenger stories. The Young Avengers (which I will review later) is my favourite Avengers storyline, so when I got Avengers Academy from MARVEL, I couldn’t wait to get to it.
Semester 2 starts up with the former students (Finesse, Reptil, Hazmat, Mettle and Striker) fear that with the arrival of Captain America and some of the Avengers, they are going to be sent away from the academy because of some of the events that happened prior to this storyline. After Mettle punches out Luke Cage, Cap and Dr. Pym assure that even with the arrival of the new students they are absolutely not going anywhere. One of the new students is HYBRID (obviously in disguise) and evil villain telepath that needs to feed on students energy to survive. But how is he getting the energy?
Reptil, one of the original students has been taken over by his future self. Future Reptil came back to make sure some events happen so that the timeline can end up how it’s supposed to. Marvel loves to play with the timeline so that they can have an aswer for everything, it’s genius but can be quite confusing at times. The future Reptil is trying to save is one where he and Finesse get together and have a child, but that can only happen is Hybrid kills some of the students, morbid right?
The last time I wrote about the brand was to share their new Spring/Summer styles and mention that they’ve revamped their website and also added in Undeez, as previously they only focussed on swimwear.

HA! Don’t you just LOVE the name of new column. I TOTALLY stole it from Austin Powers and it’s totally fitting don’t you think? So here’s the scoop, I have gotten some really great stuff from the people at MARVEL COMICS. Obviously it’s going to focus more on the gay and lezzy types of story lines (But I will read anything *wink*) to fit in with the content of our homolicious website here so here goes the first one…NORTHSTAR!
Northstar, as any true nerd knows was one of the first openly gay superheroes ever, and he’s Canadian so that’s a double bonus. MARVEL made a huge announcement this year when they said that Northstar was going to be marrying his partner Kyle in the first ever Gay Superhero wedding, this collected edition gives us the run down of how they got engaged and finally the wedding.
Australian hottie, Jarrod Scott models for H&M Spring/Summer 2013 Lookbook featuring a colorful range of suits and casual looks.
Shrunken jackets and cropped pants in bold hues are all the rage for this coming season, but you’ll also find the classic navy blue and blacks. Preppy cotton and linen fabrics are the de riguer here along with a few additional slim fitted suits and resort looks. The looks are finished off with Panama hats and casual ball caps that add a cool addition to pink blazers and green leather motorcycle jackets.
See the video on the next part of the post. Read the rest of this entry »
Model Nadja Bender rocks the runway with trends of the coming season featuring oversized and body hugging silhouettes with leather and bold patterns. Embellishments and metallics are here to stay with studs, fringe, and patchwork carried over from previous seasons. Vest inspired jackets and strong shoulders come in all shapes and sizes. Blacks are still prevalent but white embellishments lighten them up for Spring.
Baseball maybe America’s national pastime, but the Aussies know how to make swinging a bat super sexy. For their latest ad campaign, teamm8 looked to the sport for its creative direction. The Australian brand shows off their athletic wear and underwear line using Bondi fitness trainer Jesse Hogan as their muse. The results are simply steamy. Side note. During my trip to Sydney earlier this year for Mardi Gras, I stopped by teamm8′s store in the gay-borhood. It was totes cute.
Once again, teamm8 taps photographer James Demitri to snap their campaign titled “Dream Love Live“. Check out the 25-year-old fitness trainer in various states of undress. Whether he’s out in the field, undressed in a car backseat or taking an old-fashioned bath, Hogan sizzles. I’d definitely catch all his “pop flys” and slide into his “home plate”. LOL. Warning, a few of the pictures below are a bit risque so proceed with caution. No nudity, just a strategically placed glove and bat ;) Check out the photos below.
Happy Thanksgiving to all our American readers. Hopefully, you’re all having a great day with your friends and loved ones. Nothing says holiday like a tasty cocktail, right?
Since our previous posts sharing drink recipes proved really popular, I thought I’d share a few more for this festive holiday. Our friends at EFFEN Vodka, JDK & Sons, Cruzan and Basil Hayden’s sent over drink suggestions you might want to serve your guests this holiday weekend. I haven’t tried any of them yet, but the Cruzan® Pilgrim Punch and EFFEN® Cinnamon Fizz sound delicious. Check out all the recipes below and remember to drink responsibly.
Method: In a mixing glass, combine all ingredients over ice. Lightly shake, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with grated nutmeg.
EFFEN Chai Infusion: Place 3 bags of Twinings® Indian Spiced Chai Tea into a bottle of EFFEN Vodka and remove after two hours. Agitate bottle every hour.
Usually companies want David Beckham for his handsome face, chiseled abs or soccer dribbling skills. Who knew his wrists were such a hot commodity? Breitling just revealed their new ad campaign featuring the 37-year-old Brit. The watch company has chosen Beckham as the face of its Transocean Chronograph Unitime worldtimer watch. Now that’s a mouthful. The watch is equipped with the new Manufacture Breitling Caliber B05 and provides permanent readings of the time in all 24 timezones through its crown-operated correction system.
“I’ve always been a long-time admirer of Breitling,” said David Beckham. “As a company, they create not only the highest-performance watches but also timeless designs that have inspired generations. It was a natural choice for me to partner with this fantastic brand.”
Photographer Anthony Mandler snaps Beckham in front of a private jet on the runway of the Mojave Air & Space Port in California. I must say, the outcome is stunning. Becks looks absolutely handsome sporting his Movember mustache. I can see why so many companies want him. His brand exudes a fashionable masculinity that appeals to both women and men. Check out another photo from the ad campaign below, along with a behind-the-scenes look from the shoot.
