    Celebrate the Apocalypse That Wasn’t With This End of the World Movie Supercut [Video]

    Congratulations, human race, we've survived yet another prophesied doomsday scenario and can continue on with our lives without the fear of fire raining down from the sky. There's only one way we know how to celebrate such a momentous occasion right: Crack open a can of green beans from the emergency rations stockpile, kick back, and watch a whole bunch of end of the world movies with the smug satisfaction that only comes from making an entire segment of the world's population look like a bunch of raving crackpots. For the sake of time, YouTube user Critica Daquele Filme has strung together some of the best scenes from these films in one bombastic supercut package, showcasing what could have been, but thankfully wasn't.

If beings like that were tearing things up right here, right now, 12/21/12 truly would be a day to remember. On that note, here's seven comic book characters you wouldn't want to see on December 21st -- though your efforts to hide would prove futile!

    As a man of science, I know there's nothing to be afraid of on 12/21/12 besides the things I'm usually afraid of, like robots.
