Marvel Select Abomination figure looks great (link roundup)

The new Marvel Select Abomination figure looks great. Via.

And a few more links:

1. On the positive side, a Transportation Security Administration officer was caught on film stealing items from a suitcase that was a trap set by the TSA and Delta Air Lines. On the other hand, such theft is apparently enough of a problem that the trap was set.

2. Remember all the fuss out about car dealerships being closed (and the disproven claim that Republican dealerships were targeted)? More than 240 House members have signed onto a bill that would reinstate the dealerships. Via.

3. Lego Palaptine starts a dead battery with Sith Lightning. Via.

4. Michael Luongo wrote a book called "Gay Travels in the Muslim World." The version translated into Arabic has a title equating gays with "perverts." Via.

*Previously: The character of John Constantine was created because the artists wanted to draw Sting.
