Great story at Marvel.com featuring Top 10 characters from the 90s (I still don’t like Cable or Gambit). The ’90s: a much-maligned period in comics history, and yet one that produced many a memorable and successful story as well as a score of awesome characters. The ’90s were about more than just pouches, guns, trench coats and more pouchesâ€”though all those things ruled. Here’s a list of the Top 10 Marvel characters that emerged from the ’90s.

No, that image isnâ€™t from a redesign or another blog, itâ€™s from Swurl.
Swurl is a site thatâ€™s similar in functionality to FriendFeed, but upâ€™s the ante on dsiplaying the data. You can aggregate all your services into a blog-like page display. Check out my allaboutduncan.Swurl page to see what I mean.
I like the way everything is displayed. Flickr photos are automatically displayed as slideshows, Twitter posts are formatted to look like â€œcommentsâ€. Each type of content is unique looking. Itâ€™s easy to tell what is coming from where.
Also, Swurl has a nice timeline feature that shows all your activity per year. Itâ€™s a little large when you have a lot of photos. Ideally, you should be able to drill down by month as well. Maybe that will be added in the future.
I can see myself using this a lot if more of my friends/people I follow signed up. Itâ€™s nicer looking (and easier to follow) than FriendFeed. You can comment on anything. Overall, itâ€™s very nice looking and worth checking out.
