1343924242-angry_supermanLast week had the typical “Best Nerd Things of 2014”, so now, it’s time for the real fun: the WORST nerd things of 2014. Yes, these are the movies, TV shows, video games, and comics that made my blood boil to molten lava, my head feel like it wanted to implode, and my nerd rage levels to reach almost Berserker.
