Always thought, that in Fantastic Four (2005) all that "supernova" stuff was just fancy name for power, and noone really thought about SUCH temperatures. And he didn't incapacitate Dr. Doom - he partially melted his armour, which was then instatly cooled with water, locking joints immobile.

The Misc. entry for Tomb Raider mentions all the planets (including then-still-a-planet Pluto) being in alignment. Wouldn't it make sense to move that entry to When the Planets Align?

Why does Stars Are Souls qualify as Artistic License? You cannot possibly scientifically prove that stars are not souls. All you can do is prove that if they are they are also blobs of really hot gas which is of no more consequence then the statement that if humans are souls they are also clumps of protoplasm.

I think the distinction is that people say that humans have souls, which isn't quite the same as saying they are souls. There's quite a bit of debate about what a soul is, assuming that it even exists. However, I don't think anyone claims that a soul is a ball of incandescent plasma, considering us humans don't have any of that in our bodies.
