As of yesterday, the LA version of GeekChicDaily.com’s daily email newsletter is up and blasting. The company — backed by such heavyweights as Peter Guber, Bob Pittman, and Joe Roth — also threw itself a little shindig Thursday night at Meltdown Comics on Sunset Boulevard.

In today’s mirrored website posting, the LA folks ponder potential Fantastic Four kill-off scenarios. For Jessica Alba’s character, they suggest “forcing Sue Storm’s alter-ego to sit through a screening of The Love Guru. Death by embarrassment.”

Meanwhile, Canadian chain IMAX has announced a screening series partnership with Geoff Boucher’s LA Times blog Hero Complex, beginning with a May 4th unveiling of Thor. As a sign of just how marketable the whole geek thing has become, check out the second paragraph of the IMAX press release:

The Hero Complex has grown into the go-to resource for all things geek. (Their italics, not ours.)

Not too long ago, that would have been seen as a liability. Go geeks!
