In the Age of Meaningless Comic Deaths, This Is How You Kill Superheroes

Warning: full spoilers for House of X #4!

If you show me a superhero death in a comic, then I’ll show you a comic reader rolling their eyes in response. Death has become so impermanent in Marvel and DC’s stories that even the loss of a fan-favorite hero won’t do much to get an earnest reaction out of people. But Marvel’s House of X #4, by writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Pepe Larraz, manages to buck that trend by embracing the profound emotion of the characters’ final moments rather than trying to make a spectacle out of their demise.

The issue sees the X-Men assaulting a nefarious, human-run space station orbiting the sun. Their goal: to destroy the Mother Mold Sentinel so it won’t bring about the end of mutantkind, as those pesky purple robots always seem to do. Despite the experience and power level of the strike team, the human defenses prove lethal. An unexpected detonation takes two of the mutants out in a flash. It’s not long before one more is overwhelmed by guards and another is sucked out into space, leaving Wolverine and Nightcrawler to finish what has now become a suicide mission.

Is This Kylie Jenner’s Dress for a ‘Special Occasion?’

MI CASA SU CASA: Is it a wind-up or a wedding? No one knows for sure, but beauty mogul Kylie Jenner certainly has social media abuzz about her Italian escapades. TMZ broke the news that what looked like a wedding dress was stowed away, when the beauty billionaire and Travis Scott boarded a private jet bound for “Bel Paese.” The fact that their toddler Stormi wasn’t the only member of their extended family who was along for the ride only ratcheted up the rumor mill. Kris Jenner, Corey Gamble, Scott Disick and Sofia Richie have also been photographed on various strolls in Italy. Jenner jump-started the celebration of her 22nd birthday two days early on Thursday night with Scott over dinner, complete with a candles-ablaze birthday cake and what looked like a serragghia serenade. Italian tradition calls for a groom to serenade his bride-to-be with musicians from beneath the balcony or window on the night before her wedding. Chalk that up to coincidence. The “Sicko Mode” singer did not appear to be sharing his talents at the dinner table in Capri. The feathery white dress that set the rumor mill in motion was carried in a white Saks Fifth Avenue garment bag. Staffers at

Why this ESPN analyst thinks Warriors could be ‘terrifying’ next year

The Warriors will enter the 2019-20 NBA season in unfamiliar territory. For one, they won't enter the season as title favorites for the first time since lifting the Larry O'Brien Trophy in 2015 after significant roster turnover headlined by Kevin Durant's departure in free agency. "I'm not a betting man, but if I were, I'd be all over this bet," Goldsberry wrote in a Friday column, referring to the Warriors opening the season as +1,400 championship favorites according to Caesar's Palace. "Why?

Charles Barkley named this Celtics legend as best player he had to guard in NBA

Charles Barkley played in the golden era of the NBA. His career began in the 1984-85 season at the height of the Larry Bird/Magic Johnson rivalry, and it ended after the 1999-00 campaign — two seasons following Michael Jordan's second retirement from the Chicago Bulls after winning six championships in the 1990s. Barkley played against many of the most talented players the sport has ever seen, but when asked about the best player he ever had to guard, one Boston Celtics legend stood above the rest.

Here’s Where to Stream This Sunday’s Episode of Game of Thrones

If you buy something through this post, IGN may get a share of the sale. For more, read our Terms of Use.

The end of Game of Thrones is in sight. There are still quite a few people left living, which means the next few episodes will probably see a lot of people dying. Game of Thrones season 8 episode 5 airs this weekend, Sunday May 12, at 9 PM ET. If you don’t have cable, fear not: streaming HBO has never been easier.

There are lots of choices, but most of them have a 7-day free trial before you fully commit. If you want to watch every episode of the season so far, you could do so without paying a cent if you qualify for a free trial. You could even watch every single episode, from beginning to Game of Thrones season 8, but you’d also need to either not go to work or school, or just skip out on sleeping.

Met Gala 2019: Everything to Know About This Year’s Met Gala

The Met Gala countdown is on.
With less than a month to go to the 71st annual Met Gala, news on attendees, designers and the exhibit itself are coming to light as viewers speculate who will win the red carpet — many guessing Rihanna, yet again — and who will be attending.
This year’s theme, “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” gives fashion designers and celebrities room to experiment with extravagant, avant garde costumes. With Lady Gaga, Blake Lively and Katy Perry confirmed in attendance, we can expect some out-of-this world looks.
From which designers are dressing the red carpet to the Costume Institute’s exhibit itself, here is everything you need to know about this year’s Met Gala.
When and where is the Met Gala?
The Met Gala will be held on May 6 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. While the event is sold out, individual tickets went for $ 35,000 and tables of 10 went for $ 200,000 or $ 300,000.
What is this year’s theme?
In October 2018, it was revealed that this year’s Met Gala theme and Costume Institute exhibit will be “Camp: Notes on Fashion.” Andrew Bolton, head curator at the museum, has taken inspiration for the exhibit from Susan Sontag’s instrumental 1964 essay, “Notes on Camp,”
