Stephen Schleicher

Stephen Schleicher began his career writing for the Digital Media Online community of sites, including Digital Producer and Creative Mac covering all aspects of the digital content creation industry. He then moved on to consumer technology, and began the Coolness Roundup podcast. A writing fool, Stephen has freelanced for Sci-Fi Channel's Technology Blog, and Gizmodo. Still longing for the good ol' days, Stephen launched Major Spoilers in July 2006, because he is a glutton for punishment.

I told you this week would be one of reviews and announcements. Please join me in welcoming Matthew Peterson to the Major Spoilers writing staff. I have known Matt for nearly 20 years, when we met on our first day of college. Matt is a brilliant writer, and has an amazing memory when it comes to all things comic. He first got me interested in Legion of Superheroes with his amazing ability to recall characters, events, and storylines for the twenty or so years prior. This of course was back in the days before Zero Hour when many of the

USA Today has an interview with Peter Cullen, voice of Optimus Prime. As many of us already know, Cullen was not the first choice to play the part. I (heard) the movie was going to be done, and then I heard rumors that big actors … were being considered for the role. And that’s when I found out about (my) fan base — I was very, very surprised.
