Or – “His Original Costume Is The Only One That Isn’t Awful…” With the recent announcement that Jean-Paul “Northstar” Beaubier would marry his long-time (you should excuse the expression) beau, Kyle, I started thinking about the long and illustrious career of Canada’s fastest man alive. 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. Seems to me that it’s time to right that particular wrong…
The sad fact of the matter is that we live in a world where being exposed to radioactivity will kill you rather than allow you to grow 50 feet tall and shoot energy beams from your eyes. But what if we didn’t? What if we lived in the crazy world of comic book superheroes? Who, then, would the heroes of this world be? We could certainly guess, but fortunately we don’t have to. Since comics are always pretty specific about who gets to become a superhero. The signs are there, you just have to put it all together.
Or – “Goin’ Rogue, Over Here…” For the last few weeks, at the end of our Tuesday recording session for the Major Spoilers Podcast, Stephen has rather pointedly asked me, “You gonna do an editorial this week?” I always answer him the same way I answer my day job boss when he asks if my team will lower their AHT, or when Deon at Gatekeeper Hobbies (Huntoon & Gage, Topeka!) asks if I’ve remembered my timesheet this week: “Sure, that won’t be a problem…” With the advent of Top 5, it’s been a while since we’ve done one of these,
Top Five Black and Movies Top Five is a show where the hosts categorize, rank, compare, and stratify everything… from cars to gadgets to people and movies. From stuff that is hot, and things that are not nearly as interesting – it’s Top Five. This week, we listened to you, and focus this week’s episode on the Top Five Black and White Movies! We know Peter Lorre is on the list, but what about Orson Welles? Did Humphrey Bogart make it, or not?

The first day of Fall has arrived, which means, the summer movie season is officially over. There were a large number of pop culture related movies released this season, and we’ve got the rundown of the highly anticipated movies, and how they fared.
Cartoons are awesome, and a big part of cartoons is that show open. Superman flies around, cheetara beats up some mutants and Ash tries to catch some pokemans, all while some rockin’ music plays. This is not a list of ‘the greatest animated shows’ just the greatest opening sequences! What follows is a list of animated show intros, each more awesome than the last.
Hey! What’cha doin’? It’s that time of the week where go link baiting for eyeballs and click-throughs in an attempt to get more of you to visit the website. Today, it’s another round of guest stars lending their voices to animated television shows. If you haven’t seen Disney Channel’s Phineas and Ferb, you are missing out on one of the best produced, best written, best scored, best use of continuity in a series, and really any other category you can think of show. It’s that good. There isn’t a day that goes by that my son and I aren’t rolling
Or – “I Didn’t Want Those Stoopid Grapes, Anyway!” During a recent issue of the Major Spoilers Podcast, Stephen, Rodrigo and myself had a discussion about big comic conventions and the pros and cons (heh) of attending. The conversation turned to my thoughts on the sheer enormousness of San Diego Comicon, and the conclusion that it is probably not for me. Shall I list the reasons why? Well, I don’t see whyyyyyyyy… NOT.

Recently, DC Comics announced they would be “relaunching” their entire line of comics, with new number ones. Along with these new number ones, will be a line-wide redesign for every character. Many of these redesigns have already been criticized, so instead of hating on a bunch of costumes from comic books that haven’t even been published yet, I will be taking a stroll down memory lane, in the hopes of digging up redesigns that should never be forgotten. Join me, will you?
Everyone has a Dad, whether you knew him or not. Even if he rocketed you from a dying planet, or built you in a lab, one exists. As Father’s Day approaches take a look back at the Top Ten Father’s that only existed upon the page, and screen. Take the jump to see who makes the list.
Or – “In Honor Of The Series Finale…” It’s been a long, strange trip for the denizens of Smallville, Kansas, and it looks like there might be a red cape in their near future… Before the finale, Major Spoilers says farewell to Tom Welling, the Junior Lifeguard Association and all those beautiful young women with this week’s Top Ten!
