Modesty Blaise co-creator Peter O'Donnell dies

From the London Evening Standard:

Peter O'Donnell, creator of the Evening Standard's long-running Modesty Blaise cartoon strip, has died at the age of 90.

Mr O'Donnell, who had been suffering from Parkinson's disease, got the inspiration for his all-action heroine from a young woman he encountered in a refugee camp after the Second World War.

Lost star interested in playing Marvel's Sub-Mariner

Jin as Subby?

Even though "Lost" will be ending in a few short weeks, Daniel Dae Kim would like to stay in the water as Namor the Sub Mariner — Marvel's first mutant.

“Living in Hawaii, I’m always in the water," explained Kim during an interview with UGO, "And I think Sub-Mariner looks Asian. So I feel like if there’s any one I could play, it would be him. I’ve met with Marvel about a few other things, but if and when it becomes appropriate — sure, if they’d have me.”
