[X-Men] Professor X can secretly walk, he is just really lazy

Professor Charles Xavier, otherwise known as Professor X, is the brilliant leader of the X-Men: a genius telepath who is often seen in his iconic wheelchair. But other times he can be seen walking about having been 'cured', only to them return to the chair. Once might be fair enough, but this constant roundabout of miracle cures followed by mysterious accidents is very suspicious.

It is more likely that Professor X could walk all along but was just very, very lazy.

[Avengers] Thanos won't be a villain

For years, movie fans have been excitedly waiting for the moment when Thanos appears on Earth wielding the Infinity Gauntlet and fights the Avengers. Tantalising teases of Thanos have popped up throughout the Marvel movies, each seeming to move the overarching plot forwards towards 'Infinity War'.

What if all these fans are wrong though? What if Thanos won't be a villain at all?

[Avengers] Age of Ultron is about the positives of Tony Stark's unethical arms dealing past

As everyone knows, Tony Stark's past is one full of darkness and misery. Loved by the US military, he used his genius talents for evil, creating deadly weapons and bombs to be used on innocent people, not caring who he hurt as long as he made lots of money. Tony Stark then turned his back on this, dedicating himself to truth and justice as Iron Man.

Age of Ultron turns this on its head: it is a film that celebrates this past, and forces the audience to agree that unethical military capitalism can be necessary.

[Sonic] Sonic the Hedgehog is as slow as a normal hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog is the world's fastest hedgehog. People see just a blue blur as he races over the land to defeat the evil Dr Robotnik and his robot creations. He claims to be able to travel faster than light... a strange claim given that hedgehogs can only run at 15mph.

Is Sonic a special hedgehog then? Or is he simply no faster than a normal hedgehog?

There is little reason to believe Sonic is special. The biggest difference between him and normal hedgehogs is his vivid blue colouration. Of course, colour doesn't affect speed in any way, and science tells us that a speeding object shifts towards the red end of the spectrum in a 'red shift'. Blue would indicate that Sonic is somehow slower than a normal hedgehog!

[Always Sunny] It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia takes place in an alternate universe where Hitler won World War 2

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is an hilarious show depicting the day to day lives of an average group of Philadephians. Some fans have picked up on subtle hints showing a darker undercurrent to events

Are the lives of Frank and Charlie and co really so happy? Or is 'Always Sunny' set in a terrible parallel universe where the Nazis won World War 2.

[Doctor Who] The Time War was fought against giant invisible spiders

At first glance, this is a completely ridiculous statement. "The Time War was clearly fought against Daleks!" you might say. "Look, look, right there, you can literally see them fighting the Time War on screen! See?" Yes, at first glance this is the case. But there is compelling evidence that the Daleks were simple patsies for the true enemy: giant invisible spiders.

[The Mist] The Mist is a warning against marijuana legalisation

Stephen King's famous novel and subsequent film 'The Mist' is a harrowing tale of a man trapped in a grocery store whilst outside a terrifying mist hides hideous monsters. He must fight to survive from both the insane human element inside, and the monstrous monster element outside.

The Mist follows the proud Hollywood tradition of anti-marijuana films, especially prescient in an age where there was imminent danger of marijuana legalisation.

[Star Wars] There is a tiny man trapped inside R2D2

R2D2 is Luke Skywalker's best pal; everyone's favourite little plucky droid! He fearlessly helps the Rebel cause against the empire with his robotic skills. There's only one problem with this synopsis: R2D2 isn't a robot at all: there's actually more evidence that he is just an empty shell with a tiny man trapped inside.

[Batman] Alfred is bankrolling all the villains

The Joker's just got out of jail and is terrorising the city with a personalised Joker-tank constructed in his own image. Two-Face has had all his assets seized but somehow has hold of a gigantic coin-flipping machine which he plans to threaten city hall with. King Tut's a crazy man with a Tutankhamun fixation but somehow has enough capital to build a giant golden death-statue but also hire a gang of thugs dressed in custom Egyptian-themed battle garb.

Gotham's criminals are all at each other's throats all the time. There is no kingpin of crime who sets up destitute criminals with high-tech organisatons. So who is financing them? Alfred Pennyworth, that's who.

[House of Cards] Frank Underwood is secretly Lex Luthor

An evil, power-obsessed man who wants only wealth and control of the world, not caring who he manipulates. Is this man Frank Underwood or he is Lex Luthor... or he is both?

The links between both characters run more than skin-deep. There is a whole network of evidence that builds up a tantalising picture: Frank Underwood is literally Lex Luthor in disguise.

[XCOM] XCOM was designed to fail

The Earth is in danger from constant alien attack. Only the brave force that is XCOM can possibly save the world. All the nations of the Earth have teamed up to finance and outfit this elite force of human justice. There's only one problem with this: for the cream of the cream of humanity, XCOM is a bit rubbish.

[Game of Thrones] Ned Stark is in league with the White Walkers

Ned Stark was the hero at the beginning of Game of Thrones. He was a kind, honest man who loved his family and his king, and above all was honourable to a fault. He is a good man. Or so we were led to believe.

Ned can actually be seen as one of the chief villains of the whole series, and architect of much that has happened. The Starks have a stake in winter, but it isn't necessarily on the human side...

[Star Wars] Obi-Wan Kenobi was the Sith Lord that everyone was looking for

 During the Star Wars prequels, the Jedi order were shown to be investigating the whereabouts of an evil Sith Lord thought to be masterminding events behind the scenes. Their detective work was to no avail though as the evil Palpatine revealed himself to be a Sith, killing the Jedi and grabbing ultimate power for himself. Palpatine wasn't the chief Sith Lord everyone was looking for though.

That was Obi-Wan Kenobi.

[Doctor Who] The TARDIS doesn't move in time or space

The TARDIS is a miraculous piece of technology that can take the Doctor anywhere in time and space. It is bigger on the inside than the outside, and it is disguised as a humble London police box. The Doctor has travelled from the start of time to the end, and gone to places as far apart as ancient Rome and the majestic alien world of Karfel.

Can the TARDIS really move anywhere in time and space? There is actually more evidence that it doesn’t.

[Star Trek] Q caused Picard's baldness

Captain Jean-Luc Picard is famously known as 'the bald captain' of the USS Enterprise. People laugh to think of him 'baldly' going, and the hilarious japes never stop. Picard was not always bald though, he once had a lush head of hair... that is until Q stole it!

[Jurassic Park] There were no dinosaurs in Jurassic Park

Billionaire John Hammond created a marvel with his brainchild of a dinosaur-themed park that featured real dinosaurs. Jurassic Park was to be the greatest family day out ever, but this soon turned to tragedy when the dinosaurs escaped and murdered everyone. There's just one problem with this synopsis: There were no dinosaurs in Jurassic Park.

[Lord of the Rings] Sauron's power was in Gollum, not the One Ring

The central focus of 'The Lord of the Rings' is the One Ring, a piece of jewellery forged by the Dark Lord Sauron and possessing all of his evil power. It is said to be able to corrupt minds and turn men to wickedness. The entirety of Frodo's quest is based around throwing the Ring into Mount Doom in order to destroy Sauron's power forever.

But Sauron's power didn't lie in the Ring. It lay in Gollum.

[Ant Man] Ant Man doesn't have shrinking powers

Ant Man is a popular Marvel superhero with the amazing powers of shrinking. Using his high-tech suit, he shrinks his body down to fight crime and befriend ants. Or at least that is what is commonly believed: the truth is that Ant Man can't shrink at all.

[Daredevil] Daredevil is the Devil

Daredevil is Marvel's newest most exciting hero, by which I mean an existing hero from the 1960's that everyone suddenly realised was actually cool due to a new television show that doesn't star Ben Affleck. His origin is simple: blinded by a childhood accident, Matt Murdock is a lawyer by day but a costumed vigilante by night, beating up the criminals who get away with crimes in court!

Does Daredevil simply dress like Satan though, or is there something much more sinister about him? For it is possible that Daredevil is the literal Devil!

[Labyrinth] Labyrinth was a 'day in the life' documentary about David Bowie

Labyrinth is a classic fantasy film about the Goblin King (played by David Bowie), who kidnaps a baby and forces the child's older step-sister to undergo a series of fantastical adventures in the titular labyrinth to get him back. It is a remarkable fictional movie created by the team of Terry Jones, George Lucas and Jim Henson. Or is it?

A careful watching of Labyrinth and knowledge of behind the scenes happenings indicates strongly that Labyrinth isn't a fictional film at all, but instead the result of a documentary film following a day in the life of David Bowie. During this period it was not uncommon to see cinema releases of documentary films following around famous musicians, such as the Beatles and Spinal Tap. So what happened to the David Bowie documentary?

[Game of Thrones] Lord Manderly just really, really likes pie

One of the more outlandish Game of Thrones theories relates to events in 'A Dance With Dragons' where Lord Manderly is accused by fans of having killed three of the Freys and baked them into pies. There is however, far more evidence to suggest that Lord Manderly just really, really likes pie.

[The Wicker Man] Nic Cage's character is Ghost Rider

Marvel fans are saddened by the news that there won't be any more Ghost Rider films after the popular 'Ghost Rider' and 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance'. In a perfect world, Avengers 3 would headline Nic Cage as the flaming biker from hell. Will the trilogy ever be complete?

Fans need not have worried, for it is a little-known fact that the Ghost Rider trilogy has already been completed, with Nic Cage's 2006 classic 'The Wicker Man' acting as a key instalment in the fascinating tale of the Ghost Rider.

[Les Miserables] is the story of the battle between Wolverine and Gladiator

The Marvel cinematic universe has many films in it, with fans desperate to keep up to date with all the visual delight that Marvel has to offer... but there is one film that may have passed all but the die-hards by!

You see, Les Miserables is not just set in the Marvel universe, but features several characters both familiar and new who will factor in to future Marvel films.

[Superman] Superman is a plant

The Last Son of Krypton came to Earth many years ago and grew up amongst us. He has fabulous powers and looks just like us. But he isn't like us.

He is a plant.

[Game of Thrones] Littlefinger's masterplan and the Yellow Wedding

Littlefinger is one of the most mysterious figures of Game of Thrones. With his Satanic beard, it is clear that he is a villain, but until now his masterplan has been shrouded in mystery.

On 2nd April 2015, George RR Martin released a nail-biting new advance chapter from his upcoming novel 'The Winds of Winter'. The chapter was previously described by super-fan Elio Garcia who had a sneak preview as "controversial" and for ages fans debated whether it would rival the legendary Red Wedding. We were not disappointed, as Littlefinger shockingly unveils a 12 foot lemon cake.

This cake is the key to Littlefinger's ambitions in both the show and books, and gives tantalising clues to the upcoming, devastating 'Yellow Wedding'.

[Star Wars] The Emperor was masterminding the rebellion

Star Wars is the classic story of good vs evil, a brave rebel force battling insurmountable imperial odds... or is it? There's plenty of compelling evidence to suggest that all is not as it seemed, that the Rebel Alliance was simply a front for the Empire to help it achieve its aims of power and control over the galaxy.

[My Little Pony] Twilight Sparkle died at the end of season 3

Twilight Sparkle is every right-thinking person's favourite pony princess. She is clever and brave and is best at friendship and friendship-knowledge. Her ascension at the end of season 3 was a highlight for many a fan, but was this event all it seems? It is in fact more likely that instead of becoming a princess, Twilight Sparkle died.

[Game of Thrones] is the sequel to [Battlestar Galactica] and the White Walkers are Cylons

"All this has happened before, and all of it will happen again."

In Battlestar Galactica, mankind creates a robotic race called the Cylons. The Cylons turn on their creators and develop further, rendering themselves indistinguishable from humans. They attack and destroy the Colonies of Man and the survivors flee, searching for a new home planet. It turns out that history is a cycle, and that the events of the show repeat themselves again and again, with the victors of the battle building new Cylons that turn on their masters, and so on. At the end of the show, the Cylons and humans find a new planet to call home and join forces, settling it together and destroying their fleet so they could start again without technology in the hope that this new start will stop this cycle once and for all.

It failed. Because they settled Westeros.

[Star Trek] Kirk actually meets the real God at the end of Star Trek V

At the end of the film ‘Star Trek V: The Final Frontier’, Captain Kirk and crew finally reach the planet Sha Ka Ree at the centre of the galaxy and discover God… only it isn’t God, it’s an evil alien entity who Kirk must battle!

Or is it?

[Batman] Batman doesn't have any superpowers

Batman is one of the world's most popular superheroes. He fights villains in Gotham as well as helping the Justice League battle evil throughout the globe. He's been under the water, gone to other planets and other dimensions and even travelled in time. What many people don't realise though is that all of Batman's many amazing powers can be explained by more conventional means: it is possible to argue that Batman doesn't possess any superpowers at all!
