Archie Comics sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of World of Archie Double Digest #29 that arrives in stores this week.

When it comes to your Japanese five-person super-teams, there are a few rules of thumb. You get a leader, usually the upstanding hero and/or rookie. You get a comic-relief character. You get a girl. You get yourself big guy. And, to round out the group, there’s often a mysterious loner, the brooding bad boy outcast, the guy who has an axe to grind, but still quietly respects the other members of his group. This is a story about the first of those loners… Your Major Spoilers (retro) review awaits!
The Walt Disney Studios sent over this clip from Planes for all to check out.
Disney’s Planes arrives August 9, 2013.

The big finale for the seventh season of Doctor Who aired last night, and from the title we were promised the name of the Doctor.
“Clara is summoned to an impossible conference call, alerting her that the deadly Whisper Men are closing in on Vastra, Jenny and Strax. Someone is kidnapping the Doctor’s friends, leading him toward the one place in all of time and space that he should never go. It’s a deadly trap that threatens to unravel his past, present and future…”

Or – “Every Life Makes Ripples…”
Wolverine must have never seen an episode of Doctor Who, because he’d know that you can’t mess with a fixed point in time. After his world turned to madness, the Canucklehead traveled back in time to murder Henry Pym before he created Ultron, but things are not as simple as all that. (They never are…) Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
It is no secret that I have a profound pseudo-crush on Victoria, the most lovely ex-girlfriend of ultra-douchey Ted Mosby on the sitcom ‘How I Met Your Mother.’ My adoration of the character/actress aside, I have always enjoyed the adventures of young Ted finding his way in the world, making mistakes and spouting half-educated psycho-sexual theories on THE ONE and how to find her. Although the series has literally NO clue about realities of love or married life, I still enjoy watching the characters bumbling around, being funny and awesome in spite of their crippling personality flaws. That said, the beginning of Season 8 damaged the Ted character beyond repair for me, as the man who supposedly believes in love and honor above all stole another guy’s girl ON THEIR WEDDING DAY. Yes, Victoria is amazing, and sure, he’s had a lot of jerkass moments before, but after spending 8 years pontificating about finding your true love (as well as getting left at the altar himself), the hypocrisy of Ted’s actions were a solid shark-jumping moment in a series known for it’s potential S-J-Ms.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) also hasn’t forgiven Iron Man for the entirety of 2006, no matter how good his movies are, asking: What’s the most unforgivable decision made by a fictional character that you otherwise love?
Don’t miss a special interview during the 90th episode of the Wayne’s Comics podcast, now at MajorSpoilers.Com!
This week I get to talk with John Layman, from Image’s Chew and DC’s Detective Comics! John talks about how both gigs came to be, and even hints at what fans might expect from both titles in the coming months! It’s always something terrific when I get to chat with a person working on Batman, but it’s extra great to discuss the fascinating Tony Chu!
Then everything wraps up with Gianluca Glazer discussing the latest ‘News & Previews’ with me!
Wayne’s Comics is created by Wayne Hall, who also writes the weekly Comics Portal column and reviews comics for this site as well!
Set during the early 1940s in the city of Chicago, Green Hornet is the story of a hero who stands up against crime and corruption plaguing his city. By day, Britt Reid is the publisher of the Daily Sentinel. At night, he roams the mean streets of Chicago, disguising himself as the Green Hornet. However, Britt Reid is no ordinary hero. While other alter egos fight for the side of good, Green Hornet pretends to be a criminal, gaining the respect of Chicago’s shady underworld. Britt then uses his connections with the Green Hornet to expose criminals and corrupt officials through the Daily Sentinel. With his sidekick Kato, the Green Hornet sets out to hunt down the criminal elements of his city, by pretending to be one.

As the Empire dawns, the Dark Lord of the Sith and his nefarious master work to consolidate their absolute power. We know from Star Wars that it worked, but it’s the journey, not the destination, that matters… Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
I admit it: I’m reticent to accept new versions of properties that I’ve enjoyed in the past. As any fan-child (or, to be fair, any human) does, it’s hard to see them make changes that could invalidate or disrespect that which I loved. While I may never forgive DC for the Archie-legion reboots of Tenzil Kem and Chuck Taine, even I admit that sometimes it’s for the best. Sure, Spider-Man’s new brain is scary, as is Jim Kirk’s new actor and Superman’s now-missing crimson boxer-briefs, but the audiences have responded positively to these changes, and have responded with additional money spent. In short, we’ve trained the producers of our media to know that they can move extra units if their next big thing is a version of a past big thing (even if in name only.) Still, sometimes I like to try to transcend my base human nature and take a positive look at what good might come of this trend…
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is waiting for the new version of the new version of ‘Ocean’s Eleven,’ asking: Given that the cycle of relaunches, revamps, reimaginings and reworkings will certainly continue, what property do you most WANT to see get remade?
