Here's the most entertaining economics blog I've seen for a while - Ecocomics, applying economic theory to problems raised in superhero comics. How do super-villains pay for their dastardly schemes (all those minions!), what kind of insurance structure could pay for all that downtown devastation, the challenges of establishing an intergalactic union and monetary fund. That kind of thing. The latest entries focus on game theory as applied to super-villain team-ups - amazingly, the Joker isn't always being rational when he collaborates with the other inmates of Arkham Asylum.
