As a Batman fan, one might expect that I’m excited about the upcoming Gotham series just because it’s Batman. But, in reality, I’m excited to see a crime drama based in the DC universe that is as close to GCPD that we are going to get right now. Plus, with the actors that are being lined up, who wouldn’t want to check out this show? There’s a brand new trailer for Gotham that shows off the villains, and now I can’t wait to add it to my weekly subscription when it lands on iTunes.
Gotham keeps rolling out the character images to introduce us to the characters for the upcoming Jim Gordon centered show. Check out Selina Kyle and Penguin now!
Toy Fair 2014 is this week so many companies are prepping to show what they will be releasing from the toy department during the coming year. As with most things now, announcements tend to be released before the show even begins, which is exactly what DC did when they announced multiple new lines including figures from Batman: The Animated Series and Son of Batman. We at Major Spoilers are perfectly fine with this early announcement.
I’ve long complained that, as well as female characters, women creators don’t get the chance to strut their stuff in the pages of comics these days as much as they should be able to.

Ever since Bob Kane and Bill Finger decided that “cat” was the opposute of “bat” back in 1940, a lot of people have played the role of Selina Kyle. My high school crush Adrienne Barbeau even voiced her in a Batman cartoon once, and no fewer than three actresses (Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether and the lovely Eartha Kitt) starred opposite Adam West’s Batman back in the late 1960s. As for poor Halle Berry, though she looked good without her mask, her solo Catwoman tale belly-flopped like a cartoon snowman, but the proliferation of actresses who have played Selina Kyle does
The “Forever Evil” event continues to shake things up in the DCU. Admittedly a small one in terms of number of releases, this week the fourth issue of this miniseries hit the stands! It’s all-out chaos as the DC Universe continues its march through darkness! War erupts across the Earth between the villains! Allegiances are formed! Rivals are murdered! And at center stage it’s Lex Luthor versus Batman – and their fight couldn’t come at a worse time as Deathstroke’s hunting party closes in on the world’s only hope against the Crime Syndicate!
Or – “I Haven’t Been Keeping Up With This Book At All…” When the New 52 launched in late 2011, it seemed that all anyone had to say about Catwoman’s ongoing revolved around her sex scene with the big bad Bat. After nearly 2 years, has Selina Kyle reached the point where she has her own identity? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Now that Congress is taking up the issue of gun control due to recent violent events in the U.S., we can expect they’ll be looking for someone or something to blame these terrible occurrences on. Some already have come out and said that they think violent video games are at fault, desensitizing players using rapid-fire guns to murder large groups of “people.”
The new Justice League of America débuts with a whoppingly ridiculous 54 covers, with Geoff Johns on script and David Finch handling art. Will Justice League of America #1 have you declaring “America, F yeah!” or just mumbling “America… ehh… whatever…”? Stoke your patriotic pride as Major Spoilers reviews Justice League of America #1 (this reviewer got the Indiana cover).
News of the potential Doctor Strange movie from Marvel had my curiosity take over and I headed on over to deviantART to see what the fine artist there had come up with for the character. I never expected to find this. Take the jump to see deviant user alienfirst mashup My Little Pony with characters from DC and Marvel.
