Subscribe to ComicsAlliance on

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

While DC Comics is known for having the most popular characters with super-speed, Marvel Comics has its own deep roster of dudes and ladies who can run like, really fast. Whether it’s cosmic alien gods, petty criminals or even World War II-era vampires, anyone can be a speedster and we’ve assembled a countdown of five of the best in an all new Fantastic Five.

How To Transfer Activity Data From The Health App To A New iPhone

When you buy a new iPhone, you can set it up in one of two ways. You can restore it from a back-up of your old iPhone or you can set it up as a new device.

Marvel’s The Inhumans TV series made clear at the moment of its announcement that the new IMAX-shot story wouldn’t use Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a basis for spinoff, though it remains an open question if the two series might share any mythology in common. At the very least, we know the new Marvel series won’t utilize the same VFX as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., perhaps creating a different look.

This Is The Quickest Way To Switch Chrome Profiles

Chrome supports multiple profiles. If you have multiple users logged into the same Windows or macOS account, they will likely share the Chrome browser. One simple way to keep everyone’s auto-fill data and search history separate is to create different Chrome profiles for each user. The profiles are easy to create and we’ve detailed how you can switch between them via keyboard shortcuts. You can also create special desktop shortcuts to launch a particular profile. That said, the quickest way to switch between profiles isn’t via the keyboard. The mouse is the superior tool in this regard.

How To Add A Do Not Disturb Switch To The Volume Controls In Android 7

Android has a do not disturb mode that you can enable to block out all unimportant alerts. The feature was introduced in Android 6 along with Quick Settings in the Notifications shade. This shade includes a toggle for enabling and disabling do not disturb. The shade can be accessed from any and all screens which means you can enable and disable do not disturb from any screen. If the shade isn’t the easiest for you to access, Android 7 has an option to include a Do Not Disturb toggle in the volume controls. When you press either of the two physical volume keys on your device, a slider appears on your screen for managing the volume. As of Android 7, you can add a Do Not Disturb switch to this on-screen slider. Here’s how.

The slider is added through the System UI Tuner. It’s a set of hidden experimental features in Android. It must be enabled first. To do so, make sure you have developer options enabled. Pull down the notifications shade all the way so that the Quick Settings are visible.
