Buy Your (Potential) Dream Home

As a child I often imagined my dream home and what sorts of mind-blowingly sweet (not a word I use now) amenities it would feature. My grandest dream of all was to have a swimming pool filled with cereal and milk. I wasn't great with logistics - l didn't consider the fact that I would quickly have a pool full of extremely soggy cereal and possibly spoiled milk. Or the fact that you'd be swimming in your own food while you ate it.

This 90,000 square-foot Orlando mansion is being sold for $75 Million, so you'd think it would have everything you could possibly imagine - including that disgusting indoor lagoon filled with Fruity Pebbles. But no. In fact, it doesn't even have carpet. The picture above is an artist's rendering of what it could eventually look like. Instead your money gets you the partially completed home shown below - which comes with the caveat that it's being sold "as is."

What does it really look like?

So if you were to buy this place and finish it, what features are a must-have for you?

No matter what their powers, every super hero has an origin story, from Spider-Man’s radioactive bite to Iron Man’s life-threatening chest shrapnel. In their latest poster, the designers at Pop Chart Lab have taken their infographic savvy to the Marvel Universe, charting the heroic origins of 36 different Marvel characters through miniature, minimalist comics.

Without using any words, they’ve managed to illustrate Bucky Barnes's plane explosion and subsequent transformation into the Winter Soldier, Jessica Jones’s car crash, the death of the Punisher’s family, and other classic stories from the major Marvel canon while paying tribute to the comic book form.

Explore the poster below, and see a zoomable version on Pop Chart Lab’s website.

Keep your eyes open for future Marvel-Pop Chart crossovers. The Marvel Origins: A Sequential Compendium poster is “the first release of what we hope to be a marvelous partnership,” as Pop Chart Lab’s Galvin Chow puts it. Prints are available for pre-order starting at $37 and are scheduled to start shipping on March 8.
