That Darn Deadpool: Now on 21 Variant Covers This Month Not to sound like an old-timer, but I can recall an age when appearing on a cover (yes, even a variant) meant a character, however limited their role, would at least grace a storyline in some small capacity. That age is dead and Deadpool killed it. Personally, I don’t mind. I drew Ed McGuinness’ DP on every third homework assignment I filled out through seventh grade. Still, I take notice when Marvel’s February line bears more than two dozen ‘Pool covers, even if most are just variants. All told the Merc With a Mouth graces 21 variant covers, all of which play to DP’s comedic strengths by employing fan-friendly gags. Take a look to see which one you’d rather live in this month after the jump…

Sunday Buzz | A 'prescient' warning to Boeing on 787 trouble Originally published February 5, 2011 at 10:00 PM | Page modified February 9, 2011 at 2:49 PM In a late January appearance at Seattle University, Boeing Commercial Airplanes Chief Jim Albaugh talked about the lessons learned from the disastrous three years of delays on the 787 Dreamliner. One bracing lesson that Albaugh was unusually candid about: the 787's global outsourcing strategy — specifically intended to slash Boeing's costs — backfired completely. "We spent a lot more money in trying to recover than we ever would have spent if we'd tried to keep the key technologies closer to home," Albaugh told his large audience of students and faculty. Boeing was forced to compensate, support or buy out the partners it brought in to share the cost of the new jet's development, and now bears the brunt of additional costs due to the delays. Some Wall Street analysts estimate those added costs at between $12 billion and $18 billion, on top of the $5 billion Boeing originally planned to invest.

Sure, Disney's cartoon ducks are some of the most iconic characters around -- Uncle Scrooge, his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and of course, their half-naked uncle with anger control issues, Donald. But it's not like they're relevant to your life at all. Oh, you couldn't be more wrong. For the last 50 years, these ducks have been busy changing the goddamn world, and it continues right to this moment. #5. Inception was the biggest film release in a long time, and audiences and critics alike gushed over how original it was. In a 2002 comic book, eight years before Christopher Nolan's little dream exploration film, Scrooge got his mind hijacked by the Beagle Boys. After they're inside Scrooge's mind, the Beagle Boys have trouble differentiating dreams from reality -- again, exactly like the characters from Inception, who need special items, or "totems" in order to tell dream from reality. #4. #3.

Why Are You People Defending Apple? As you’ve doubtless heard by now, yesterday Apple revealed its new fee structure for premium content: all apps that offer premium content outside of the App Store have to also offer it via Apple’s official in-app purchases (this includes Amazon’s Kindle) and Apple takes a 30% cut of all subscriptions. The response has predictably ranged from outrage to approval — my colleague MG Siegler did a thorough piece talking about why this makes sense for Apple and users, even if it may leave developers up in arms. But I’m still having a hard time swallowing it. My reaction has been one of trepidation. I don’t like where this is headed, and I think that many who consider themselves technophiles are completely dropping the ball by rationalizing what Apple has done. The first mistake people are making has been to focus on whether or not this move is Apple’s prerogative. Yes, that’s right: Apple isn’t the best at everything. Which brings us to why I find all of this so alarming.
