Opinion: How DC’s Mister Miracle Helped Me Confront Fatherhood

Warning: this article contains spoilers for all 12 issues of Mister Miracle!

When it debuted last year, Tom King and Mitch Gerads’ Mister Miracle seemed to be a story about master escape artist Scott Free confronting the one trap he can’t outwit: death itself. Even as Scott joined in on a massive cosmic war between the rival worlds of New Genesis and Apokolips, he faced the prospect that his very reality is a lie. At a certain point, readers are left to question if the entire series is some sort of fevered hallucination generated by the mind of a dying god.

The series reached a major turning point midway through, however. Scott abruptly learns in issue #6 that his wife Big Barda is expecting, which hit home to me: this spring, my wife very matter-of-factly informed me she was pregnant with our first child as we were driving home from the grocery store one afternoon.

Peter Dinklage Helped Jamie Dornan Run Lines for Fifty Shades Freed: ‘I Nailed It’

Peter Dinklage is here to help out a friend in need.

The Game of Thrones actor stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Wednesday, when he recalled helping out his friend Jamie Dornan prepare to film some reshoots for his final turn as Christian Grey in  Fifty Shades Freed.

While costarring in the film My Dinner With Hervé together, Dinklage and Dornan ran lines from the famously steamy movie.

“I read some of the screenplay, though, in our dressing room,” said Dinklage, 49. “I went in, he had to do some reshoots for Fifty Shades and I would help him out learning lines.”

Naturally, Dinklage took on the role of Anastasia Steele, while Dornan read his lines as Christian.

“I would read the Dakota Johnson parts,” he said. “I was just helping a friend learn lines. I nailed it. I really did.”

And when host Stephen Colbert compared the Game of Thrones fans to Fifty Shades fans, Dinklage pointed out one major difference.

“Very different fans,” Dinklage said. “I think Game of Thrones fans would take issue with comparing the two because Game of Thrones fans are very specific and lovely. Fifty Shades fans have issues. It’s all suppressed issues, I think.”

Dinklage recently finished filming the final season of Game of Thrones. And while he couldn’t give any hints as to what fans can expect, he said Dornan attended the wrap party.

“It was a crazy night in Belfast, and he’s from Belfast,” he said. “So that was fun. It was a great wrap party.”

My Dinner With Hervé hits theaters Oct. 20.

Years After a High School Senior Was Nearly Beaten to Death, Hypnosis Helped Her ID the Suspect

For years, all Brittani Marcell knew was pain.

In September 2008, when she was a 17-year-old high school senior in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Marcell was nearly beaten to death in her home, according to the Albuquerque Journal. The attack was so vicious it left her blind in one eye and deaf in one ear.

She underwent more than a dozen surgeries in order to recover and had to re-learn how to walk and talk, the Journal reported earlier this year.

Though Marcell’s mother inadvertently walked in during part of the attack, calling 911, the assailant fled, according to the paper. Marcell had no memory of what happened to her, and authorities had few fruitful avenues to pursue.

And then, in 2016, a change. First Marcell recalled a man with whom she was acquainted while working at the mall. Then, according to the Journal, a name came to her: Justin Hansen.

Her revelations reportedly led to DNA testing that showed a drop of Hansen’s blood was at the scene of Marcell’s assault. Prosecutors said a witness reportedly further confirmed having seen Marcell speak with Hansen at the mall where she worked. He was indicted in July.

Local TV station KOB reported that in April — nearly a decade after Marcell was struck again and again by a shovel — Hansen pleaded no contest to two charges in the assault: first-degree attempted murder and aggravated burglary.

His change came days before he was set to stand trial and not long after an appeals court declined to weigh in on whether his indictment violated the statute of limitations, the Journal reported.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

Hansen faces up to 18 years in prison at his July sentencing, according to prosecutors.

Still, he maintains his innocence.

The case’s progression is traced on Friday night’s episode of ABC’s 20/20, which is exclusively previewed above, in a clip that explains how Marcell first decided to undergo hypnotherapy to aid law enforcement.

The episode features interviews with Marcell and her mother as well as investigators in the case and Hansen himself.

ABC says that Hansen, who does not have a previous criminal history, argues additional testing on the weapons at the scene in 2008 — now impossible due to a 2015 error resulting in their destruction — would have exonerated him.

But Marcell is certain of his guilt, and her family agrees.

“We knew in our hearts he did this when this came about and Brittani remembered his name, but he took responsibility today and that goes a long way, to say that ‘I did this,’ ” her sister Alicia Marcell told the Journal in April. “I think that’s where we start to have some closure and healing.”

20/20 airs Friday (10 p.m. ET) on ABC.

Prince Harry Reveals How Counseling Helped Him Cope With Diana’s Death

In a surprisingly candid interview, Britain’s Prince Harry has revealed his struggles in the wake of Princess Diana’s death in 1997.

The 32-year-old prince told The Telegraph that his way of dealing with his mother’s sudden death in a car accident in Paris was to simply shut down his emotions.

“I can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but my work as well,” said Harry.

He added: “My way of dealing with it was sticking my head in the sand, refusing to ever think about my mum because why would that help? It’s only going to make you sad. It’s not going to bring her back.”

By the time he was in his 20s, Harry said he felt like he was going to explode.

“I have probably been very close to a complete breakdown on numerous occasions when all sorts of grief and sort of lies and misconceptions and everything are coming to you from every angle,” he said.

Harry spoke about his experiences as part of The Telegraph’s series of “Mad World” podcasts about how people grapple with mental health issues. The prince participated in order to battle the stigma surrounding opening up about personal problems and to encourage people to get help.

Harry and his brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have also set up the charity Heads Together to promote mental health.

Harry gained a reputation known as the wild brother, particularly after photos of his nude hijinks in a Las Vegas hotel room came to light in 2012. But now he’s involved in numerous charitable projects such as supporting the Invictus Games for wounded warriors, working to eliminate hidden land mines, encouraging HIV testing and helping to save elephants in Africa.

As for his emotional struggles, including two years of “total chaos,” Harry said he finally sought counseling at the age of 28 and started opening up about his feelings. He also said boxing lessons helped after he came very close to “punching someone.” Now, he’s in a “good place.”

Harry encouraged others to learn from his struggles.

“The experience I have had is that once you start talking about it, you realize that actually you’re part of quite a big club,” he said.

These 4 Precious Pups Helped Their Parents Tie The Knot

Shandess Griffin is a devoted mom to four precious fur babies: Zero, Holden, Navi and Arbor.

When she tied the knot with Jason Griffin on Sept. 19 in Tofino, British Columbia, there was no doubt that the whole gang would be right by their side.

“There wouldn’t have been a wedding without them,” Shandess told The Huffington Post. “It was a spectacular feeling to have all my loved ones there and it just wouldn’t be complete without my daily companions!”

Zero, an 8-year-old Samoyed, is the oldest of the bunch. Next up is Holden, a 6-year-old Bernese mountain dog, followed by Navi — a 4-year-old Australian Shepherd mix. The baby of the group is Arbor, a 2-year-old Bernese mountain dog. 

The boys sported dapper bow ties for the occasion, and Zero even had his fur styled. 

At the reception, Zero and Holden joined the newlyweds for their first dance.

 

Zero and Holden, pictured above, have been a part of the couple’s love story since day one. Jason and Shandess first met online after he sent her a message, asking if he could accompany her and her dogs on a walk. 

“He struck the right chord when he talked about the dogs right away,” Shandess told HuffPost. “Dogs are my world, especially my own and it was very important that he was a dog lover. My dogs loved him immediately and that spoke volumes!”

Since the couple got together five years ago, they have added Navi and Arbor to their brood. When Jason popped the question in June 2014, all four dogs played a part in the proposal. 

In December, the newlyweds will be adding yet another pup to their growing family — an Australian Shepherd named Harvest.

Couple Who Helped Win Marriage Equality Finally Ties The Knot

Two women who played an integral role in the Supreme Court’s ruling to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide have finally tied the knot, and Now This News has compiled a beautiful video documenting the occasion.

Jayne Rowse and April DeBoer, a Michigan couple who became plaintiffs in the recent historic legal battle for same-sex marriage rights, married one another in front of approximately 300 friends and family members last week, according to Detroit Free Press.

The pair, who have four kids, initially only pursued a legal case about adoption rights, since Michigan’s adoption code doesn’t allow for joint or second-parent adoption. However, Rowse and DeBoer became one of the couples to join other plaintiffs from Ohio, Tennessee and Kentucky in a combined marriage equality case known as Obergefell v. Hodges, wherein the Supreme Court ruled in favor of gay couples, thereby guaranteeing marriage equality across the nation.

“Little did I know that you would bring me four beautiful kids… and drag me into the Supreme Court,” DeBoer told Rowse during her vows. “I am honored to soon be your legal wife… You are my best friend. I promise to love you forever. I can’t imagine my life without you and without our kids. I promise to stand by you forever.”

Congrats, Jayne and April!

This Remarkably Cool Bride Helped A Friend Propose At Her Own Wedding

There aren’t many brides out there who would genuinely be okay with a guest popping the question at her wedding. But bride Chelsea Pulse is one of those rare souls.

Not only was she supportive of her friend Brett Davidson proposing to her cousin Megan Creal at the reception, it was actually her idea in the first place. This is how it went down: At the April 2015 nuptials in Excelsior Springs, Missouri, Chelsea pretended like she was going to toss the bouquet. At the last minute, she handed it off to Megan instead and prompted her to turn around, where Brett was waiting.

“When we told [Brett and Megan] the date we had set for the wedding, they mentioned that it was the same day as their anniversary,” Chelsea told The Huffington Post. “I couldn’t resist having something special for them on our day. After a couple months of pondering, the idea came to me that he should propose at our wedding! I messaged him about it and he, of course, did not want to steal our thunder. But my husband and I both assured him that would not be the case and that we would be honored to have him do it on our day.”

Wedding videographer Gold Hairpin Films captured the sweet moment and uploaded it to Vimeo earlier this month.

“She was completely speechless!” Chelsea told HuffPost of Megan’s reaction. “She had no idea and was noticeably confused as Brett dropped to one knee. It really caught her off-guard and her reaction was priceless.”

The bride also said that she didn’t realize how unusual it was for her to be on-board with a mid-wedding proposal until the video started going viral.

“That was a complete afterthought to us,” she said. “Not one ounce of us wanted to hold back from allowing this occasion to happen!”

Watch the sweet moment unfold in the video above.

When Books Went to War: The Stories that Helped Us Win World War II


When America entered World War II in 1941, we faced an enemy that had banned and burned over 100 million books and caused fearful citizens to hide or destroy many more. Outraged librarians launched a campaign to send free books to American troops and gathered 20 million hardcover donations. In 1943, the War Department and the publishing industry stepped in with an extraordinary program: 120 million small, lightweight paperbacks, for troops to carry in their pockets and their rucksacks, in every theater of war.Comprising 1,200 different titles of every imaginable type, these paperbacks were beloved by the troops and are still fondly remembered today. Soldiers read them while waiting to land at Normandy; in hellish trenches in the midst of battles in the Pacific; in field hospitals; and on long bombing flights. They wrote to the authors, many of whom responded to every letter. They helped rescueThe Great Gatsbyfrom obscurity. They made Betty Smith, author ofA Tree Grows in Brooklyn, into a national icon.When Books Went to Waris an inspiring story for history buffs and book lovers alike.

Dick Cavett Explains How David Letterman’s ‘Mask Of Innocence’ Helped Him Get Away With Anything

Late-night TV legend Dick Cavett joined HuffPost Live on Wednesday to look back on the legacy of David Letterman and say goodbye to the subversive comedy icon, who officially begins his retirement after his final “Late Show” episode airs tonight.

Cavett, a longtime fan of and former guest on Letterman’s show, told host Josh Zepps that the key to Letterman’s incredible interview style was his ability to hilariously insult his guests even as they sat right next to him, creating a unique “sense of danger” on his show. Cavett said Letterman was able to sneak by his biting barbs thanks to “that hayseed, rustic, Midwestern, innocent, clownish face.”

In order to do “those things that he was criticized for and the dummies didn’t get,” Cavett explained Letterman often hid his cutting wit “behind a wonderful mask of innocence, and I think that’s what made it effective for those who dug it, among whom I was one.”

Cavett added that often guests had no idea they’d been hilariously ripped apart by Letterman until after the interview was over.

“David’s attitude — it wasn’t so much ever what he said — but his attitude and his looks were priceless, and I’m sure some of [the guests] were stunned when they got home, saw themselves with David and saw what he had done to them,” Cavett said.

Rape Survivor: Working On A Sexual Assault Documentary Helped Me Heal

Ari Mostov says she was bitter that she felt pushed out of her “dream school” in 2013, after campus officials didn’t take her report of rape seriously.

Now, the 22-year-old is channeling her energy into “It Happened Here,” a documentary about campus rape — work she said makes her feel like she is making an impact and has also helped her heal.

Mostov filed a complaint in May 2013 against the University of Southern California that resulted in an ongoing federal investigation of the school. In the complaint, Mostov detailed that the university’s Department of Public Safety had told her she had not been raped because her assailant stopped and did not orgasm.

Records later obtained by The Huffington Post showed that the DPS had also labeled Mostov’s report as an “injury response” rather than rape, which she believes shows how the school kept sexual assault statistics low.

The increased scrutiny on USC began to subside in 2014. Some of the complainants graduated, while others said they became too stressed to continue speaking about their cases in public. Mostov was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and clinical depression. She had found university employees’ responses to her report of an assault to exacerbate her mental anguish, so she left USC behind.

“I knew returning to school, it was going to be absolute hell again,” Mostov said, so she took time off to address the aftermath of her assault on her own terms.

Mostov was a film and screenwriting major at USC, and was able to find some short-term production work after leaving school. Then she was introduced to Marjorie Schwartz Nielsen in November 2014, who agreed to hire Mostov to help work on the “It Happened Here” release and subsequent campaign and promotions. The film debuted on the cable channel Pivot earlier this year and began being screened on college campuses in conjunction with the White House’s “It’s On Us” anti-sexual violence campaign. It will be released on iTunes and Google Play on May 12.

Working on the film, Mostov said, has been “one of the most amazing experiences” of her life.

“For the longest time I wasn’t able to think about what happened, I wasn’t able to grieve,” Mostov said. “Not being able to return to the school of my dreams and all of this hurt and pain I was putting off — I was finally able to put it to work.”

Nielsen said the survivors she has worked with and interviewed came forward for various reasons — that their assailant attacked someone else, that they felt their school’s atmosphere was getting worse, that they were tired of hearing stories similar to theirs — but what has kept them involved is a desire for “not letting the momentum die.”

“None of them pursued civil suits against their attackers,” she said. “They took up activism because they wanted it to change things.”

Neilsen said the social activism component is critical because to actually eliminate sexual violence, awareness isn’t enough — advocates need to address actual solutions.

At each screening, Neilsen said she explains campaigns some colleges have hosted on their campuses to inspire copy-cat demonstrations, and asks students in attendance to take the White House’s “It’s On Us” pledge.

The “It Happened Here” team has had more than 130 screening requests for the film, including some from organizations in France, Canada and Bangladesh. It’s stretching beyond college campuses, getting screened at several California high schools. On March 30, Mostov and Neilsen spoke about sexual assault at a TEDxYouth event in San Diego. Over the summer, the team will plan for more screenings at schools in the fall. They said they are particularly hoping to get more high school students to see the film, so they can start engaging young people before they arrive at college.

“This affects everyone, and really, in order to stop the cycle, we need to get ahead of these behaviors,” Mostov said. She envisions a day when asking for consent is as routine as asking for a condom.

“We’re really hoping to help to teach people, especially the younger generation, that they have a right to advocate for themselves,” she added. “It’s personally something I really struggled with because I didn’t know.”

Mostov wants to send the message that “I am brave.”

“I am doing this, this happened to me and I’m not going to be silent about it,” she explained. “My story matters too. This is what happened. I don’t care if you don’t believe me, I don’t care. This is what happened to me.”

The Woman Who Helped Raise Billions in the Battle Against Breast Cancer – The Oprah Winfrey Show

Original airdate: September 30, 2008

At 33 years old, Susie was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was 1978, and the disease wasn’t yet a significant part of the public consciousness. Doctors didn’t know much about treating it. There were no support groups, toll-free numbers or Internet forums.

Eventually, Susie lost her battle with the disease; however, her memory lives on thanks to her sister, Nancy. In 1982, Nancy founded the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. To this day, the organization has invested more than $ 2.5 billion in breast cancer research. Watch as Nancy shares how her life’s work has affected hundreds of thousands of women.

Lea Michele Reveals Kate Hudson Helped Her Heal After Cory Monteith’s Death

Lea Michele is opening up about her boyfriend Cory Monteith’s death in the new issue of Elle magazine.

The “Glee” star, 27, covers the December issue and reveals that her co-star Kate Hudson took her in and helped her cope with Monteith’s death. Michele admits that Hudson was one of the first people she called upon hearing the tragic news, explaining, “I called her and said, ‘I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters].’ She was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.’ Like it was nothing.”

And Hudson didn’t just open her doors to Michele.

“She let my family stay there, and any of my friends. She made sure that in the refrigerator were my favorite juices,” Michele tells Elle. “I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.”

Monteith died in July at the age of 31 from a “mixed drug toxicity” consisting of heroin and alcohol and Michele has been slowly adjusting to a life without him ever since.

“It’s very hard,” she admits, continuing, “You have to be very strong to come out of this alive, but I think by doing the best for myself, by showing that you don’t have to lose yourself, maybe someone else will feel some sort of strength or comfort.”

In the interview, Michele also admits that she and Monteith began dating during the first season of “Glee,” but that “no one really caught on.” In early 2012, they made it official: “‘You wanna do this?'” Michele recalled them asking themselves. “We knew.”

“I know that Cory would want nothing more than for me to take this situation and use it to help people,” Michele adds, “I don’t know if I will. I don’t know how.”
