Meet Fumikage Tokoyami, a hero-in-training in a world where over 80% of the population has a super power, or “quirk.” Tokoyami is part-bird, part human, and he can manifest another entity called “Dark Shadow.” Of all the characters on My Hero Academia, now in its fifth season, Tokoyami is my favorite. It’s my hope the manga/anime’s creator, Kōhei Horikoshi, will spin Tokoyami into his own series.
Look what this guy can do:

Today I learned some tragic news from a tweet by Joseph Mallozzi, executive producer from Stargate SG-1 (among other shows).
“Incredibly saddened to hear of the passing of the wonderful Cliff Simon.”
Terrible news. And what a loss.
Cliff Simon, an actor and athlete hailing from South Africa, played the recurring role of Ba’al, a villain in the Stargate SG-1 series. He was a marvelous performer, virtually stealing the scenes in which he appeared.
I’d like to commemorate his talent by posting my favorite scene from Stargate SG-1 Season 8, episode 16:
