This weekâ€™s ephemera: Former Captain America Steve Rogers is STILL dead, but at least heâ€™s out of development hell! Itâ€™s night in Hyboriaâ€¦ do you know where your children are? And, cyborg versus cyborg in a no-holds barred chair-swinging extravaganza smackdown. Plus: all hell breaks loose, the pulps rise again, Archieâ€™s girlfriend gets a new paint job, andâ€¦ begun, this clone war has. Or, begun it will have been someday, this after which we are living now, or began, however that sentence did. Hmm.[podcast]http://media.libsyn.com/media/majorspoilers/majorspoilers_48.mp3[/podcast]
