Or – “Major Spoilers, Major Time Crunch!  I Blame Stephen!”   There’s a couple of reasons why I do what I do here at Major Spoilers…  The first is, I love comics, and I know you do, too.  (See what I did there?)  I want you to look at Wednesdays the same way I do, with a combination of joy, expectation, and “What in the world will they do next?”  Basically, I want to share the love. Also, and possibly more importantly, I’m an attention whore.  Problem is, I actually have two jobs other than this one, both of which tend

Or – “Never Trust A Shady Government Agent With Nigh-Limitless Power.” When comics were young, the heroes were firmly pro-establishment.  Most were goverment agents of some stripe (you should excuse the expression) or another, but sometime in the mid-60’s the shift from “Kindly Government Supervision” to “Jack-Booted Thug Wrapped In The Flag” began.  We went from Franklin Roosevelt convening the founding members of the Justice Society to H.P Gyrich firing Avengers to establish a team with the proper seven-person mix of diversity and powers.  Even Nick Fury, that last bastion of red, white and blue lower-middle class honesty led several Marvel heroes

What exactly goes on behind the iron curtain of superheroes? Sure we get to see Bruce brooding in his cave, Clark attempting to have a normal life with Lois, Wally and family trying to cope with their particular lifestyle, but all of these views are from the perspective of the writer, not the person living in the world of the heroes. It is surprising that there are not more stories that focus on the celebrity aspect of superheroes and the lengths those heroes will go through to keep their private life separate from their hero identity. Fortunately, Noble Causes from
