Mecha Mania: Our 5 Favorite Giant Robots
Everyone loves mechas. Who isn't thrilled by the sight of a four-story-tall robot laying waste to an equally large robot (or better yet, an equally large monster)? Recently, we asked you to name your favorite mechas in geekdom and you answered. Here's a look at the 'bots who made the cut.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - With a name like "Heaven Piercing," it's no surprise that the massive bot topped your list of favorite mechas. Not only is Gurren Lagann the titular mecha of the extremely popular Gurren Lagann series but it's also the most powerful and destructive. With armor made of the skulls of vanquished enemies, it has a constant energy source burning at its core (and a pair of “non-functioning demonic sunglasses”), which makes Gurren Lagann the strongest mech from the series and the coolest looking.

'Man of Steel' Trailer Wows From 'Birthright'
The new Man of Steel trailer is setting the Internet on fire with kudos for its classic feel and big movie spirit. It digests the Superman origin story, along with a taste of the conflict in the film.
The Man of Steel origin story has elements drawn from Mark Waid and Leinil Francis Yu’s Superman: Birthright limited series. Waid tweeted, "New Superman trailer? I am OVER THE MOON. Goyer used Birthright’s 'The 'S' Stands for Hope.' I am EUPHORIC." He followed it up with, "Also? The line about 'You're the answer to the question 'Are we alone in the universe' also directly from BR. VERY chuffed."
