stan lee – the original superhero

Stan Lee, the creative behind iconic Marvel Comics and the architect of beloved superheroes, has passed away at age 95. Lee has said that he felt what he did “was not very important”, comparing his talents to those of humanitarians and doctors, but his legions of fans would beg to differ. My husband is a huge fan of Lee’s creations including Spider-Man , the X-Men , Thor , Iron Man , Black Panther and Fantastic Four and I have no doubt that as soon as my 1-year-old son is old enough, he too will be a passionate fan. Superheroes are more than mindless entertainment, they take us on journeys far beyond the daily grind and they inspire little girls and boys to think big. They’ve also made billions and created…

palace in chaos

In the lead up to their wedding on May 19, Prince Harry made it clear that Meghan would not be pushed around. According to royal correspondent Robert Jobson, Harry, 34, yelled at palace staff, “What Meghan wants, she gets!” But it appears that royal waiters may have become fed up with the duchess, 37 – who is set to give birth next year – with two staff members walking out since the wedding and a third resignation reportedly underway, after a palace aide confirmed the latest walkout to the UK’s Daily Mail. “It’s a real shock, why would she want to leave such a prestigious job so soon?” the royal insider said of Meghan’s personal assistant, known only as Melissa. “To lose one member of the household could happen to anyone.…

terror in melbourne

FLOWERS COVERED THE PAVEMENT outside Pellegrini’s Espresso Bar in Melbourne. It was a colourful – and heartfelt – tribute to a much-loved man tragically caught up in a terror attack. A community – and a nation – was left reeling when cafe co-owner Sisto Malaspina, 74, was fatally stabbed in the Nov. 9 incident at the Bourke Street Mall. The man responsible, Somali-born Hassan Khalif Shire Ali, injured two others before he was shot by police after he lunged at them with a knife. He later died in hospital. Out of such horror two uplifting stories have emerged. The first is the outpouring of emotion – including from celebrities who knew him – for local icon Malaspina. And the second is the emergence of a local hero – initially known only…

my amazing’ new love

BACK IN MARCH, KYLIE Minogue – still licking her wounds from her broken engagement to actor Joshua Sasse in 2017— got real about her romantic track record. “I know people often like to paint me as a bit of a failure in that department,” she said. “Maybe it’s not my destiny yet to have met the one.” It seems fate may have stepped in. In an interview with News Corp on Nov. 11, Minogue, 50, gushed about her new beau, GQ creative director Paul Solomons, 43, six months after first confirming their romance. “It’s been lovely and wonderful to have someone who really is there,” she said, ahead of bringing her Golden tour to Australia in March. “It’s great to have success in your life – to have someone to share…

‘i had a stroke!’

Terry and Margaret Perkins are causing quite a stir on Bride & Prejudice mainly because their son Hank’s fiancée, Lily Wellsmore, appears to be far too much of a feminist to meet their conservative views of life. Viewers have witnessed Hank’s parents labelling Lily a “controlling feminist vegetarian” and openly admitting they would prefer their son to marry a woman “who doesn’t speak back and does what she’s told”. Despite all of their hang-ups, Lily was there beside Hank and his family when Margaret suffered a stroke in the past. “We thought someone was breaking in,” says Lily, 23, who was visiting her fiancé’s family home. “It was full-on,” Hank, 26, tells WHO. “I was back on my R&R period [from his mining job] and Lily and I were at Mum and Dad’s house…
