Celebrating the Superheroes of Science

Wed, 11/05/2014 - 12:50

  With all due respect, Tina Turner was wrong. We do need another hero. We need lots of them. Disney gets it, which, in theory, is part of the reason it acquired Marvel and made those little films about Avengers and Guardians, respectively. Maybe you’ve heard of them.  But Disney didn’t stop there. Obviously kids look up to superheroes, so how about some heroes they can relate to? Say, six of them? That’s where Big Hero 6 comes in—the first animated...

Tue, 11/04/2014 - 08:50

Annie, the little orphan girl with signature curly red locks, first appeared on the Broadway stage in 1977. The musical was a hit.
