Spider-Woman #1' has a special variant cover that's…not working out so well.

Ender’s Game is set more than a century in the future and has nothing to do with political issues that did not exist when the book was written in 1984.

With the recent Supreme Court ruling, the gay marriage issue becomes moot. The Full Faith and Credit clause of the Constitution will, sooner or later, give legal force in every state to any marriage contract recognized by any other state.

Now it will be interesting to see whether the victorious proponents of gay marriage will show tolerance toward those who disagreed with them when the issue was still in dispute.

Orson Scott Card’s response to those who want to boycott the upcoming film adaptation of Ender’s Game, exclusively on EW.com.

The best-selling author has come under fire for his stance on same-sex marriage: In 2009, he joined the board of the National Organization for Marriage, which opposes same-sex unions. That year, he also wrote a piece in Mormon Times that railed against “dictator-judges” and argued, “Married people attempting to raise children with the hope that they, in turn, will be reproductively successful, have every reason to oppose the normalization of homosexual unions.”

What’s your reaction to the statement?

In which Paula Deen apologizes amongst the jump cuts.

Pro tip, Fashion (and Michelle Williams): Stay away from photo shoots that style non-Native American actresses to look like Native Americans. It will never end well.

Kill those f—ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives/ Kill those f—ing Yankees who ordered them to torture/ Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law, and fathers/ Kill them all slowly and painfully.

Umm, yeah, so: In 2002, future “Gangnam Style” rapper Psy was pretty mad about a pair of American soldiers who were accused of (and eventually acquitted for) killing a 13-year old Korean girl. Then he wrote this song.

Here’s the design tattoo artist Peter Koskela used as the basis for the ink:

It’s a newsmagazine smackdown! Which one has the more controversial cover — Time or Newsweek?

The left media and Wasserman Schultz will try to tell you that I threaten the president’s life and that I’m a mean, nasty man who wants to rape your puppy.

Okay, Ted Nugent — it might be time to just stop talking altogether.

Yikes — Ashton Kutcher and PopChips are being criticized for an ad in which the TV star dons brownface and puts on an exaggerated Indian accent. The video has been taken down — but Kutcher’s character, Raj, lives on in this other PopChips spot.

PopChips CEO Keith Belling posted on the brand’s official site that the ad was intended to be “a light-hearted parody” and that the creative team behind it “did not intend to offend anyone. I take full responsibility and apologize to anyone we offended.”

He has to be a little more responsible and write a little bit and think a little more before he does it next time. That’s why I don’t like people having cameras in the comedy clubs, because you’re just throwing thoughts out there, and that’s the creative process. You’re going to offend some people as you’re finding the lines. Now, he didn’t find a line, he found a cliff. But unfortunately, that happens.

Tracy Morgan’s Little Man co-star Marlon Wayan weighs in on that whole homophobic rant thing.
