Boxcar Wild

Daredevil, cosmonaut and record-collector, always on the lookout antiquated design and photography.

Big fan of The Beatles, Victoriana, Doctor Who, Bob Dylan, New York, Manchester, World War Two, Wes Anderson, Tom Waits, 1950s kitsch, etc.
Deal with that.

Superman Vs. Muhammad Ali, 1978The Plot (via Herocomplex): Some nasty aliens called the Scrubb arrive on earth and threaten to invade unless the planet’s greatest champion will fight their massive, snarling gladiator, Hun’Ya. Superman steps forward as the obvious choice but then Ali cries foul — Superman is an alien himself and if Earth needs a champion, shouldn’t it be a human? Superman and Ali then fight for the right to go and since the Man of Steel is stripped of his powers during the bout, Ali wins.  (via)
