A lot has been said about the Man of Steel this past week. We’ve had a couple of reviews (both text and video), and featured a place where you could share your thoughts on the movie. Online there is also a lot of talk about the pros and cons of the film, with some absolutely loving it, and others loathing it. We’ve heard all the good and all the bad, but today, it’s about your fellow movie goer.
Comics and video games seem to go hand in hand, and this week, we not only get a dose of cool comics, the news from E3 now has two new gaming systems headed our way.
Though The Doctor has been through a number of incarnations since the television show debuted 50 years ago, the announcement that Matt Smith is stepping down, once again has the Intardwebz in a kerfuffle. But the prospect of the How and Why and What Happens Next should be a bigger draw than that bemoan the fact that change is occurring…right?
This is going to be a controversial poll of the week because of spoilers and all, and I realize that many of you get upset when we reveal too much on this Major Spoilers site. So if the title didn’t ruin it for you, take the jump to participate in this week’s poll of the week.
Summer time means swimming pools, blockbuster movies, and comic book conventions.
This week, many of us at Major Spoilers are preoccupied with our jobs as educators and students. That means final exams, final projects, and of course the walk across the stage during graduation. Some will seek immediate employment, while others will go to graduate school to further their education, and some will return to their parents’ basement to live out the rest of their lives.
This week, we turn the spotlight on you and ask the all important question…

Reality horror films have been around for decades now, with the Blair Witch Project still sending Matthew diving under the covers the instant the snot rocket scene appears. There have been a number of franchises that have used the found footage gimmick to put the scare into audiences, and get that well timed jump of fright.
Comic book match-ups often leave readers at odds with one another over who really won the big fight. Logan vs. Spider-Man? Juggernaut vs. Superman? Batman vs. Batman? It gets everyone worked up. So, let’s keep the dialogue going by asking the age old question, “Who would win in a fight?”
There have been a number of heroes to hold the mantle of The Green Lantern, and like The Flash before him, everyone seems to have their favorite. Which brings us to the Major Spoilers Poll of the Week!
VOTE! (after the jump)
While Major Spoilers moves ever forward to its funding goat (see more about it here), the promise of new and returning features has us jumping around the office in giddy anticipation of what could be.
Now that Barry Allen is back as The Flash, there are those who still pine away for the good ol’ days of Wally West or Jay Garrick. Still some like Bart Allen, Jesse Quick, and Kryad. Which brings us to the Major Spoilers Poll of the Week!
Rodrigo and I had an interesting discussion the other night following a massively long recording of Muchkin Land – a fan podcast that celebrates the card game Munchkin from Steve Jackson Games. I know i didn’t need to explain the podcast to you, because you already listen to it faithfully as one of the Major Spoilerites. Regardless, the topic of being stuck in a boat in the middle of the ocean or stranded on an island worked its way into the conversation and Rodrigo raised an interesting question.
