Another year is coming to a close, and this morning people around the globe woke up to see what Santa left them for being nice in 2018. Of course, those who were naughty woke up to nothing, including our very own Jessica Chobot. Hey, we love Jess! We love her so, so much…especially because she might see this…but Kris Kringle runs a tight ship, and the jolly old elf checked his list twice and she didn’t make the cut. Again. But don’t worry, because we still got her something, a present that is also a gift to all of you who have spent the year with us checking out the biggest stories in pop culture every day. It’s our favorite Christmas tradition: the best and worst of Jessica Chobot’s year on Nerdist News.And while Old St. Nick didn’t come down Jess’ chimney, she did get a strange visit from another magical being; one who doesn’t violate Marvel’s intellectual property rights.[brightcove video_id=”5981789200001″ brightcove_account_id=”3653334524001″ brightcove_player_id=”rJs2ZD8x”]Ah, yes, Professor Weird, a totally original, time-bending character that in no way infringes on any other superhero. No, seriously, we checked with our elves in legal and they said we’re good to go. And maybe, instead of Santa, his visit is the one Jessica truly needed to be a lot nicer next year.Unless that would mean no more bloopers. Then we don’t mind if she’s naughty.Merry Christmas, everyone!
