Every decade of pop culture has its indelible moments of foolishness, frippery and eminently mockable memories. The 1990s does not contain more that’s terrible, silly or indefensible than other decades, it just seems that way. Especially in terms of superhero costumes… Welcome to Ten Things!
ComiXology has announced the best selling indie titles released through its Submit program, and the results are somewhat surprising.
It was a very crazy couple of days in Southern California as the San Diego Comic Con took over the city. With movie stars, cosplayers, comic professionals, and hundreds of thousands of fans in attendance, there was certain to be some big news revealed at the show. With the hundreds of stories posted over the last couple of days, Major Spoilers runs down the Top Ten Stories from Comic-Con 2014.
This summer’s cinema slate has been backended by two apocalyptic-minded comedies from both sides of the pond. From This Is The End to this week’s The World’s End, it seems like today’s comedic talents might be trying to tell us something. Let Major Spoilers figure it out for you… in song.
The Star Wars Universe is a big, broad, beautiful setting populated by a colorful cast of characters. And we’re not just talking about your Han Solos, Princess Leias and Jar Jar Binkses. Major Spoilers brings you some of the Star Wars universes’ lesser known denizens…
On the eve of the San Diego Comic-Con, McAfee – you know those virus protection people – have done some “research” on what comic book characters most often lead to bad links, viruses, malware, and sites with stuff that could be bad for your computer.
Humans have always been fascinated by the possibility of enormous monsters and killer robots. Countless movies, like the recent Pacific Rim; along with comics and yes, even songs have been written on the subject. So I have decided to once again force popular internet meatbags George Chimples and Rodrigo Lopez to count down the best of the best. And the Machines better come out ahead… OR ELSE!
Humans greatly respond to the image and idea of Superman, The Man of Steel is pervasive in American (and world) culture and is the subject of many songs. In order to better understand this phenomenon I have tasked George Chimples and Rodrigo Lopez with compiling the top 10 songs about Superman… OR ELSE! Here are their findings:
With the announcement that The Walt Disney Company has purchased Lucasfilm, half of the Internet is very nervous that Disney could monkey around with the property and ruin it completely. We’ve taken a moment to reflect on the pros and cons of this concern, and have discovered five ways Disney could both ruin and improve the Star Wars movies at the same time.
With the upcoming release of The Dark Knight Rises, the much-anticipated ending of the Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy, we at Major Spoilers have been discussing what we believe to be the most awesome Batman moments of the character’s nearly 90 years of history. Stephen and I clashed over what the best Batman story EVER would be (I say ‘Joker’s Laughing Fish,’ Stephen’s votes have lately been turning towards the Court of Owls, and Rodrigo likes Justice League Unlimited Bats) but we agree on one thing: The guy gets around! I guess when you haven’t got super-powers, one has to get
Mysterious ships are being totted around by the military. Faces are being eaten off by humans. These certainly are the times we have secretly dreamed would happen. Most of you probably have a rudimentary idea of what you would do if a zombie apocalypse broke out, or signs pre-made to welcome extra-terrestrials to our world. But if I had to choose between invasion, or the dead coming back to life, I’m going with ET every time. And here I present my Top Ten reasons why.

From his earliest days with Alpha Flight to his current stay on Utopia, Jean-Paul has a long and storied career of heroism, haughty attitude and terrible costumes, but I imagine many of us only know him as Marvel’s first openly-gay superhero.
