A few days ago in the most recent Superhero Round-Up we saw the newest and greatest augmented reality game/viral campaign for The Amazing Spider-Man, notably the two pages of cryptic code from the journal of Peter Parker. Well, the math nerds over at Superhero Hype have already cracked the code and found the secrets it protected.
Here is what the two pages of spider doodles actually said:
SOMETIMES THE FACE IN THE
MIRROR DOES NOT EVEN LOOK LIKE ME
ONE MINUTE I AM ACING MY MIDTERMS
THE NEXT I AM IN FISTFIGHTS
I HAVE MADE EVERY MISTAKE A
TEENAGER COULD MAKE BELIEVE ME I
WISH I COULD TAKE BACK MY WORST
DECISIONS BUT I CANNOT LIVE IN THE
PAST INSTEAD I MUST BECOME THE BEST
VERSION OF MYSELF I WILL SUCCEED
Yes ladies and gentleman, crappy high school poetry! This led to the discovery of the photoblog www.parkerspov.com. Yes, post after post of incredibly lame hipster-esque instragram photos. Ugh. The new Spider-Man is a filter happy emo teen. However he’s also pretty awesome at the science, because the real treat the viral/ARG revealed as a butt tonne of pics and even a video of the mechanical based webshooters from the movie.
Since they could count as spoilers, they are up after the jump.
P.s, With the revelation that Spidey really is a emo-hipster in the new movie, how many of you just started cheering for the Lizard?
The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s crazy things like Tetris porn or the big reveal of where Catwoman stashes the hidden scepter Bastet while on the run. Hey, it’s the internet folks. Luckily there is always the counter balance of some mind blowing nerd based art. We collect it, you enjoy it, and we are all better for it.
ABOVE: Aww, looks like someone got their giant gamma powered butt stuck in the “werm hole exparimunt” at Avengers HQ. A wonderful blend of Winnie the Pooh and The Avengers, this piece by cpwilsoniii also defines every comic nerds nightmares now that the Mouse owns the House of Ideas. [Deviant Art]
Hit the jump for an anime Princess Peach, X-babies, Batman in chains and MOAR!
The Interwebz is a great place for artists to share their nerdy work, even though the majority of the time it’s a bunch of fuckin’ weird shit. There are a ton of awesome things to behold every day but we’re fuckin’ lazy bastards, so we just put it all together once a week to keep your mojos happy. Because I wasn’t able to get the stock pile up last week, we’ll be having a double feature this week showcasing only the best of the best from the past two weeks! Buckle down, guys, and have your socks at the ready.
We’ll start off this week with some work by Marco D’Alfonso of the Iron Giant being fuckin’ hungry and deciding to nom himself some Optimus Prime.
So if it isn’t bad enough that Superheroes already have a “greater than thou” attitude imagine the worst case scenario folks, imagine if they were….HIPSTERS! Oh Noes! Hispters are hard enough to handle in human form, now imagine them with powers; what kind of world would that be like to live in? Well, it is depicted in these wonderfully hilarious and badass pics of these Heroes turned Hipsters. Check ’em out here!
