As a “child of the 80’s”, artist Billy Butcher took inspiration from the new wave era he grew up with and merged them the iconic heroes of DC Comics.

What makes a pop culture icon?
Would it be the effect of their contribution to a cultural movement? Is it the way they impact the time and the generation they are targeting? Or just how their exposure constitutes a defining characteristic of a given society or era?
As a child of the 80’s I was heavily influenced by everything from saturday morning cartoons on TV to the music coming from the radio. Ian Curtis or Johnny Rotten are as iconic to me as Superman or Batman. Real people or imaginary characters, the incorruptible ideals of perfect superheroes or the human flaws and desires sometimes so desperately depicted in song lyrics – all of those influences affect us to the point of defining our character and personality, career paths and life choices.
The references we are exposed and specifically the ones we choose to absorb make us who we are. Who are your heroes?

It’s kind of weird, but Billy Idol makes one helluva Aquaman.

We’re not a team, we’re a time bomb… ticking down to a wardrobe disaster. (by Karina F.)

The fine folks at Latino-Review just dropped an exclusive first look at a conceptual trailer for Wonder Woman done by stuntman turned director Jesse V. Johnson! Unlike the failed attempt by NBC and producer, David E. Kelly’s Wonder Woman, JVJ’s take on the “Amazonian Warrior Princess” isn’t cheesy and over the top. It walks a fine line between glamour and grit. Plus, watching Wonder Woman (played by Nina Bergman) whoopin’ on some Nazis and unloading a MG-42 is mighty sexy. I hope this fan-made trailer gets some attention in Hollywood as JVJ definitely is ready for the big time. I can only hope that CW’s Wonder Woman series, Amazon is just as good. I highly doubt it though…

Hit the jump and check out the trailer!

Sara Jean Underwood is the 2007 Playboy “Playmate of the Year”, a presenter and host on G4’s ‘Attack of the Show’, and now Esquire’s “The Ladies’ Tournament” champion for the “Hottest Woman of 2012″. To celebrate her big win, Sara Jean Underwood was the newest feature in Esquire’s very popular “Me in My Place” photo feature and as usual she is cute as a button and pretty damn hot in Wonder Woman undies. Sure, this isn’t too “geeky”, but I have a soft spot for purdy things, especially Ms. Underwood. Congratulations Sara!

Spencer’s Tom: Hey, Bob. You know all those skimpy bikinis that strippers wear that we make with the marijuana and beer logos and stuff?
Spencer’s Bob: Yeah, sure. What about it?
Spencer’s Tom: Superheroes are popular. Let’s just replace the marijuana leaf or Corona logo with Batman or one of them superhero people. Then, we’ll have our big boobie models wear them on our site so kids can come and stare!
Spencer’s Bob: Thomas… That is the greatest idea ever. WE WILL MAKE MILLIONS!
Spencer’s Tom and Spencer’s Bob: HAR HAR HAR HAR! /highfive
The end.
