Top 10 Best Mothers in Comics



10. Animal Man’s wife, Ellen Baker: She kept her family in one piece while her husband was considered MIA for a year, following the events of Infinite Crisis. And yet she still stayed strong, and kept her two kids hopeful during all that time. That automatically puts her on the list.

9. Queen Hippolyta: Warrior queen, yet tender mother. She was Wonder Woman’s confidante and best friend — even if at first she did not approve of her daughter’s compassion for Man’s World. Yet Hippolyta has always served her daughter, first and foremost, stemming from the love that turned a hunk of clay into Themiscrya’s first daughter.

8. Linda Park West: She dropped a career as a successful journalist to basically pioneer a new field of medical science — all in the name of her kids! Linda Park has her hands full with two Speed-Force-imbued children, but she always handles them — and her hyperactive husband, Wally West — with care. Give that woman a prize!

7. Sarah Connor: In retrospect, go Connor go! Now that Judgment Day has actually taken place, all that training the slightly off-kilter Sarah Connor instilled in her son John may be the only thing that saves his life in a world where machines have run rampant. (Editor’s note: She’s also my all-time favorite heroine.)

6. Invincible’s mother, Debbie Grayson: How this woman isn’t a sobbing mess, I’ll never know. The mother of Mark Grayson — aka Invincible — she survived heartbreak when she learned her husband Omni-Man was in fact an agent of the Viltrumites, sent to take over the planet. Yet she has not only instilled Mark with a bedrock moral foundation, but has also begun raising his half-brother, Oliver, as he ages quickly due to his alien heritage. A trooper if I ever saw one.

5. Blue Beetle’s mother, Bianca Reyes: Easily my favorite mother in comics, who handles her superpowered son with both humor and morality. Bianca Reyes has even teamed up with her son on one occasion, when a fight broke out in the El Paso hospital where she works. Never one to let her son’s “extracurriculars” get the better of her, she even chewed out Guy Gardner for creating a giant green fist in their backyard. You get ’em, Mrs. Reyes!

4. Invisible Woman: Talk about a cool mom. She’s the most powerful member of the Fantastic Four, and her powers act as a built-in security system for her children Franklin and Valeria. Why go to Disneyland when you can time-travel to the first World’s Fair? Invisible Woman Sue Storm can not only make that happen, but keep your kids safe as well! Is it any wonder she’s on the list for the Best Mothers in Comics?

3. Aunt May: The rock of Spider-Man’s life, the one who reminds him of Uncle Ben’s message — with great power comes great responsibility. Every time Peter runs out of cash or gets his wife stolen by Mephisto, Aunt May welcomes him home with open arms (even if she thinks he, like Danny Glover, is getting too old for this… stuff). Of course, she’s shacking up with J. Jonah Jameson’s dad now, which bumps her down the list a bit. What, it’s awkward!

2. Lara Lor-Van: She made the ultimate sacrifice — to send her son in a space capsule to make a new life for himself outside of the doomed Krypton. She even gave her infant a copy of Kryptonian history (at least in Superman: Birthright, my preferred Superman origin). Always an unsung heroine, Lara Lor-Van’s leap of faith meant the salvation of a universe. So it’s not too much to at least give her some flowers and chocolate, OK?

1. Martha Kent: Patron saint of all comic book mothers, she instilled in Clark Kent an unwavering sense of truth, justice, and the American Way. If it wasn’t for her, we’d probably be living on a cinder right now.

Takanakuy Festival at risk? – Strange Events




250px-Location_of_the_province_Chumbivilcas_in_Cusco.svgDid you ever heard about “Takanakuy”? Did you have wanted the opportunity to straight up your differences with somebody you knew in a fight, enjoin a good food, special dress, dance and booze? Well a lot people call that Saturday night.

Chumbivilcas is a province in the Andes, South Peru, and according to the Peru 2005 Census 77,721 inhabitants, rural communities families with eight and more children are not unusual, one of the poorest regions of the country.

The people in the province are mainly indigenous citizens of Quechua descent.

Takanakuy Festival for beginners

Each December 25th part of the population from Chumbivilcas Province reunite to the Takanakuy “festival”, where participants practice of fighting fellow community members.

Takanakuy Festival at risk - 02The practice started in Santo Tomás, the capital of Chumbivilcas, and has now spread to other villages and cities, the prominent ones being Cuzco and Lima.

The festival consists of dancing and of individuals fighting each other to settle old conflicts or simply to display their manhood.

Those holding the grudges call out their opponents by their first and last name.

Kicking and punching are allowed in the middle of the circle. Biting, hitting those on the ground, or pulling hair is not allowed during the fight, this is a civilized community!

Takanakuy Festival at risk - 01Although the government of Lima has tried to eradicate Takanakuy Festival, the celebration has diffused into urban areas such as Cuzco and Lima.

People of non-indigenous descent are now taking part in this originally indigenous cultural custom, yeah, why not?

Then everybody goes drinking to numb the pain and move on to a new year.

Now serious, tells us, don’t you have a co-worker, neighbor, a church member you have a beef with?

Polish company to brew beer from a Czech models vagina bacteriaPolish brewery company launched a crowdfunding for its attempt to brew beer from a Czech model’s vagina bacteria.

Warsaw-based The Order of Yoni — “Yoni” being a Sanskrit word for “vagina” — is seeking to raise about U$170,000 (£118,000 or 150,000 Euros) with an IndieGoGo campaign for Bottled Instinct, a beer brewed using lactic acid bacteria collected from the vagina of Alexandra Brendlova.

The Order of Yoni says the initial run of beers would include sour ales, lambics, flanders ales and sour stouts. Each bottle of beer will be stamped with Brendlova’s name as well as “the date of the collection of her vaginal swab.” Also it will brew six batches of 16,600 beers each, with funds going towards the ‘brewing process, ingredients and bottles’ decorations’.

The money will also cover the ‘model’s reward’ and a budget for the ‘perks’ offered to investors. However, there is no detail provided as to the breakdown of the costs.

The beers do not, however, feature the taste or odor of a vagina, the brewers say.

The company says their future plans include brewing other types of beers using bacteria harvested from other woman, as well as other products incorporating said bacteria including kefirs and yogurts.

Not as strange as vagina bacteria beer

In 2012 an Oregon brewery, developed a drink that led, among the ingredients, beard strands of his brewmaster. The drink was sold, including in other countries.
