Justice League Avengers: Manchild Uprising
DC and Marvel Comics unite for the first time on the big screen.

(Cameos by the Hulk, Thor, and Zach Galifianakis.)

From The New York Times:
A self-described magician and escapist who once set a record for eating a household light bulb in fewer than 34 seconds was arrested and charged with committing a string of Brooklyn bank robberies.

Williams, 22, also holds the record for eating a light bulb at an incredible speed (33.86 seconds, as per recordsetter.com) – truly a man of many talents. Perhaps he thought he could get away with these robberies by eating the cash, or making it magically vanish? Whatever the case, he was arrested Wednesday, June 6. Brooklyn banks are now safe from the magical robber.
