MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: A Midsummer’s Nightmare
Something is wrong with DC’s classic heroes. Each has forgotten the life in which he or she wore a flamboyant costume and protected the weak with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. Even stranger, ordinary people everywhere are gaining their own powers in an insidious plan to cultivate Earth’s population as a race of super-soldiers.

    Oh Schleicher you..you..YOU SKANK!
    Now that’s outta the way I have a message for the residents of the luxurious Spoiler Manor.


    When are we gonna see an All-Star Superman review from you guys?
    That would be awesome just as awesome doing one of TOM STRONG!
    You know like a Christmas present.

    Signed all the little sick street urchins

      Oh, it is on! Seriously, it’s all in fun from my end :D

      I looked down the list and All-Star Superman and Tom Strong are both on the list, but not before the end of the year. Those who pay special attention to certain episodes have an idea of where we stand for the next couple of weeks.
      December 22: Squadron Supreme
      December 26: Christmas Special Topic
      December 29: Best of 2009 (did you post on the forum yet?)
      January 2: What’s ahead in 2010

      All of these will be sans Rodrigo, as he is going on his yearly trek to the great white north to spend the holidays with his family.

      Wanna be on the show? Better call the Major Spoilers hotline, or better yet, record your thoughts and send them our way to be included in the December 29, and January 2 shows.

      Oh, crappit! I think I just spoilered our upcoming shows… sorry about that ‘glitch ;)

          Doing a show On The Squadron Supreme has appeased me. I will bless the website with mild weather and less earthquakes. It is off* for now…
          And good to know they(All-Star Strongman and Super Tom) are on the list.

          in other news…

          So do you have a holiday replacement for Rodrigo? Maybe some friends from the super-future or perhaps a Skrull? The show just works better with a 3-5 panel.

          Oh and its still me(glitch) but with a much more batman(Its an adjective now) name.

            We might. I have to make a few phone calls.
            That being said, the Best of 2009 show almost doesn’t need a third wheel IF enough Spoilerites start sending in their audio comments NOW!

        So, no Planetary podcast in the foreseeable future :(

        BTW

        Matthew, it’s your birthday
        God bless you this day
        You gave me the gift of endless pop culture references
        And I’m proud of you today

    I would like to commend Matthew on his open. Those have become one of my favorite parts of the show and this weeks is second to none!

          How can it be worse? He never lets you or Rodrigo get a full sentence out without adding a comment or mocking you guys. Of course its hilarious(specialy since Rodrigo forgets what he was saying half the time)and one of the reasons I hear the podcasts to begin with.

            Rodrigo doesn’t forget what he’s saying… He just doesn’t finish when I interrupt, to punish me. :)

            And as for Stephen, he and I have a workable rhythm wherein he gets to be Mr. Icicle, he’s Mr. Snow. He’s Mr. White Christmas, He’s Mister 10 Below.
            I, for my part, am Mr. Green Christmas. I’m Mr. Sun. I’m Mr. Heat Blister, I’m Mr. Hundred and One…
            It’s a balance that works.

    If Rodrigo’s going to be gone make him send in a sound clip to the Major Spoilers podcast.

    Because I’m sure everyone is already thinking about it anyway:

    “Max Damage! Is a man, whose name you’d love to touch! But.You.Mustn’t.Touchhhh! His name sounds good in you ear, but you know you mustn’t fear, ‘cuz his naaame can be said by anyoneee!”

    Sorry, I’m a little behind due to the holiday’s but during the tpb review. Matthew kept saying SEVEN. Superman – 1, Batman – 2, WW – 3, Flash – 4, GL – 5, Aquaman – 6. Am I missing a character?

      Yep. The Martian Manhunter was the seventh member of the League, in it’s original incarnation, and here.
