ABC appears to have quietly canceled Inhumans, its extremely cheap-looking adaptation of one of Marvel’s less-popular superhero franchises that premiered in IMAX theaters to a 10 percent Rotten Tomatoes rating. Over the weekend, SpoilerTV noticed that ABC had totally scrubbed any mention of the show from its press site, which sure seems like a sign that it won’t be coming back for Season 2. To the vast majority of people, this cancellation means nothing, but Inhumans did have a few fans, and some of them are apparently desperate to save the much-derided series.

Presumably, one of those fans started a petition, and a couple of news outlets are reporting on the petition. As of the time I wrote this, fewer than 1,000 people had signed it, so the petition really, really doesn’t matter.

Inhumans was canceled because almost everybody hated it (even Rotten Tomatoes audience score, which is typically much kinder than the critics’ score, was just 51 percent) and the ratings were abysmal. Fewer than 2 million people watched the finale. Those are two very good reasons for a major network to cancel a series, and it’s doubtful that a few hundred jabronis on are going to make Disney, a company worth tens of billions of dollars, do an about-face.

Also, anybody can make a petition. I could log on, right now, and make a petition demanding that NBC bring back the 2011 superhero drama The Cape. My petition would not be news, and wouldn’t be a signal that there’s a huge groundswell of support for a revival of The Cape, let alone that NBC is going to listen to some pseudonymous fans who clicked a button to sign a petition. All it really means is that a small group of people have access to an official-looking platform that makes their demands look more serious than they are, especially when news websites add legitimacy to these petitions by covering them. Heck, the only reason that the Inhumans petition might have cracked 1,000 signatures by the time you read this is that folks heard about it from these news websites. Some might’ve signed it as a joke.

Even fan petitions with more impressive numbers, like that fan petition demanding that Waner Bros. release a Zack Snyder cut of Justice League, are unlikely to make an impact, but with 170,000 signatures, the petition is somewhat newsworthy, at least. That’s not enough people to get Warner Bros. to do anything, probably, but it is a somewhat interesting look at fan culture. The Inhumans petition is an uninteresting look at what a couple hundred people are clicking online.

Fan petitions are about as convincing as this request. 

I will eat all of the hair shaved off of Medusa’s head if I am wrong, and this petition goes mega-viral, forcing ABC to capitulate and renewed Inhumans for a sophomore series. That’ll probably be when Disney removes The Last Jedi from Star Wars canon because some users were Mad Online, so I feel pretty safe.

One of the latest challenges to hit Fortnite: Battle Royale requires a steady aim and lightning fast reflexes if you want to succeed at the shooting galleries in this Week 4 challenge, though you’ll have to find them first. Less serious dancing is reserved for a totally different challenge this week.

The Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 6 Hunting Party Challenge continues, and much like Week 3, the focus of the new secret loading screen is Fable, the character that looks like a badass Little Red Riding Hood. We’ve got all the details on how to solve this new loading screen puzzle and the secret this week, but just like in Week 2, there’s a secret banner instead of a battle star.

Gone are the days of “search between” and “treasure maps,” because Fortnite: Battle Royale’s location-based challenges these days involve multiple steps and dancing on top of random landmarks. So where can players dance on top of a Clock Tower, a Pink Tree, and a Porcelain Throne?

Fortnite Season 6, Week 4 kicked off Thursday morning, and with it came the typical seven new challenges. This week, however, they’re all fairly difficult, or otherwise just involve a lot of work. The fifth challenge initially just reads “Dance on top of a Clock Towers,” but it’s essentially one of the multi-stage challenges that we’ve seen before. This time around, however, it’s a bit misleading because it doesn’t actually say “Stage 1” in the title.

With less than two weeks before Halloween, Epic Games is starting to get a little bit more festive with a new Fortnite: Battle Royale Challenge in Week 4. “Ring the doorbell of a house with an opponent inside in different matches” is a very wordy way of telling players to go trick-or-treating.

Rumor has it Nintendo is teaming up with Square Enix to bring another new character to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster. Leaks have been few and far between (possibly because the Final Fantasy developer is doing its best to keep the secret), but new information may have finally confirmed exactly which new Square Enix character is coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate.
