    Les Aventures de Tintin Is among the more popular franchises in France post war, continuing even after Hergé's death 1983, still being published and translated.
    Franco Belgian art and animation has gained popularity in many western countries, as well as its fair share of controversy both abroad and at home, in particular the more adult oriented variety, such as Barbarella which has even been banned in many conservative countries and places around the globe for its overtly sexual nature and in some places, the depiction of emancipated, sexually liberated women.

    Following Lik-e-Leaks posting of Dr. Tatopolous' sketch of the alleged monster at Ogasawara Island, the Hacktivist news group released what they claim is a photo taken covertly at the facility. They claim it shows the monster at the facility before it underwent more experimentation:

    "Thou shall not invade Poland"

    Warsaw Uprising was a major World War II operation conducted by the Polish government-in-exile, United States, Great Britain, South Africa with a support from the Soviet Union.

    During late 1944 war seemed to be turning in favour of Allies. On June 6, 1944 Operation Overlord was executed to land on Normandy's beaches and liberate France. Simultaneously, 15kT nuclear device was detonated over city of Potsdam on June 7, with a next one exploded over Munich two days later. Refusal of surrender had caused Wehrmacht generals to launch unsuccessful coup d'etat against Adolf Hitler, with the help of rebellious troops located in the Western Front. Allies used that to advance as quickest they could - on June 11, Operation Dragoon liberated Marseilles and Toulon, three days later Charles de Gaulle's motorized infantry reached Paris. By the end of June, whole France and Belgium were liberated. During July 1944, Allies crossed into Central Germany where they encountered significant resistance (when anti-Nazi officers were executed in the Reich).

    Operation Tempest was created by the Polish government-in-exile, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and American President James F. Byrnes who wanted to reduce postwar Soviet influence on Europe. Home Army (Armia Krajowa) was supplied by the United States Air Force and the Royal Air Force with guns, ammunition and even light anti-tank weapons to overtake local German garrisons and prevent Red Army from "liberating" Poland. On August 1, 20,000 of Polish fighters arose against German garrison of the city. A day later, Polish 1st Independent Parachute Brigade and American 17th Airborne Division landed in Praga suburb. Seeing no other choice, Joseph Stalin ordered Polish First Army (part of the Red Army) to advance across the Vistula river, hoping to gain as much influence on Warsaw inhabitants as possible. Within next 12 days, German forces either surrendered or were pushed away from the city. From the Presidential Palace, Tadeusz Bór-Komorowski announced creation of the pro-Western, capitalist Third Polish Republic.

    After discovery of the German death camps, 5,000 Prisoners of War were executed by the Polish nationalist partisans National Armed Forces (Narodowe Siły Zbrojne) and other, smaller groups often formed by civillians disgruntled with a five-years' long brutal occupation and national humilitation. Killings were stopped only after arrivance of Dwight D. Eisenhower, who ordered American Military Police to restore order (which resulted in a few "heated discussions" between Polish partisans and Americans).

    Shortly after battle of Berlin conducted by the American-British-Franco-Polish forces, member of the Anders' Army raised the Polish flag over Reichstag. This image can be seen in the Presidential Palace of the Third Polish Republic. It still remains a source of pride for Poles. (August 21, 1944)​

    Following the sectioning of the Royal Navy sailor known only as Sailor X, the following photo was released by Lik-e-Leaks. The Hacktivist news group say that the photo was sent to them by a relative of Sailor X who called herself 'Sister Rosebud'. She clims the photo was sent to her by someone serving on the same ship with her brother. Lik-e-Leaks claim the photo shows proof of the giant lobster sighted by Sailor X; though where exactly the photo was taken remains unknown:

    Dictator Edward Smigly-Rydz on December 24th, 1938 gave an order the Ministry of Paranormal Investigation to pack up and move their operations from Warsaw to Wilno. His decision was promoted by a report from that team about various strange things occurring around Warsaw. Rydz would also order elements of the Polish to be deployed around Warsaw in case something were to happen.

    On December 27th, 1938, an Alkonost had landed at the Presidential Palace in Warsaw. In which she would inform Marshal Rydz and his Government of an ultimatum from the Chief Ancient God, Piorun. The ultimatum was that the Gods demanded that Rydz and his Government recognize them as the legitimate gods of Poland. They also wanted all of the Ethnic Polish people revert back to the Pre-Christian Religion. The Alkonost would also mention that negotiations could be held, but only at an open field outside of Warsaw.​

    Muhammad Ali posing on the set of Ocean's 12 (1962). He would star alongside an all star cast, lead by Frank Sinatra, and would go on to have a successful film career, though he would say of his co-star Frank Sinatra: "Sinatra was the worse to be honest" joking "He's the kinda guy who'd run for president out of spite of the last guy and the competition... Oh wait he did".

    A week after Lik-e-leaks released the photo of the giant lobster claw, their insistance that the giant lobster is a real creature is seemingly given more validation when Makoto Nagano, captain of the fishing boat Yakata Maru, releases a photo he took which he claims shows the ghostly image of an unknown giant monster in Tokyo Bay. The JMSDF dismisses the photo as 'a clever forgery':

    After seeing the photo released by Captain Nagano, Genji Okamura who served in the Imperial Military during WW2 as a Captain, releases a photo of his own which he says shows a giant monster attacking the first wave of US Marines that tried landing on Okinawa during the closing days of the war. The U.S. Navy refutes the authenticity of the photo, saying it is nothing more than a photoshopped image of real marines and a monster from a b-movie:

    A colorized photograph of a Gamayun photographed near along the banks of the Warta River near the city of the Czestochowa by Franciszek Kwiatkowski. This photo would smuggled out of Poland and ended up in Britain where it was printed onto the front page of the Daily Mail on January 1st, 1939. In which Warsaw would claim that the photograph was a hoax, being the body of a taxidermy hawk and the head from a porcelain doll. However the photograph would be reprinted onto the front page of every major newspaper in the world, thus gaining international attention.​

    With the JDSF and US Marines having to pubicly deny the existance of any other monsters aside from the two that attacked New York, a photo taken by American tourist Matthew Gledhill on his honeymoon in Okinawa hits the front pages of all the major newspapers in Japan, the UK and US. In an interview for the Japan Times, Matthew says that he had left his husband in the hotel and went out to take some photos for a honeymoon souvenieer photo album.

    He says that when he stopped to take a photo of a grove of trees, he heard a low rumbling sound, and when he looked up, he saw what he described as a 'large dog-like monster that towered above the trees'. He took one pjoto before the monster dissapeared into the trees:

    On December 30th, 1938, Marshal Edward Smigly-Rydz would make a very fateful decision, he would all forces in the Warsaw Area to be all put on High Military Alert.
    [​IMG]
    A Polish Air Force PZL. 23 Karas Light Bomber flying near Warsaw. The Polish Air Force like the Army in the Warsaw region were all on very high alert. The High Commanders would for sure know the reason why for the alert, it was in case Poland were to get into a war with the Polish Gods of Old.

    To the West, the Third Reich didn't fail to notice of what is happening in Poland, Hitler himself got a feeling that something not good is bound to happen in Warsaw, and as such, might effect Germany.
    [​IMG]
    Czechoslovakia in the wake of the Sudetenland Crisis of 1938 would also ready their forces in case of something were to break in Poland. December 31st, 1938. (ignore the Swastika Flag)
    [​IMG]
    The USSR would also move troops to it's with Poland, and Red Army Commanders would plan for an invasion of the country if the see the right opportunity.
    [​IMG]
    A Polish wz. 37 37mm AT gun near the Polish-Soviet Border, these were the defenses against a possible Soviet Invasion in a possible conflict with the Gods. The Polish High Command held the fear that the Gods of old had allied themselves with either the Soviets or the Germans. However, Ozwiena would truthfully tell them that she and the other Gods hold no alliances with either the Bolsheviks or the Nazis.​

    He was still boxing in this ATL after the fact. He did a lot of crazy things, another I may get into later on.
    Also a bigger question would be "SINATRA RAN FOR PRESIDENT?!"

    The first poster for Genndy Tartakovskies full length animated film Superman, released in 2015. Superman, starring Karl Urban, Rashida Jones, James Spader, Keith David and John Goodman would be loved by critics and audiences, loved for its animation, uplifting feeling (Including Walk by Foo Fighters and Mr Blue Sky by ELO on the soundtrack) and its voice acting, and would go on to jumpstart the DC Animated Cinematic Universe, which would be followed by The Batman in 2017...
