If I offered you a drug that would give you super powers, would you take it? Assuming you believed it did what I said, how could you not? It worked for Underdog and Hourman. But what happens when the effects wear off? How far will you go in chasing that initial high? How much would you give up for that feeling of power? Find out after the jump.
Ex-girlfriends can represent painful experiences for many of us. If you feel that someone from your past did you wrong, I’m willing to bet the pain you find within the pages of Zenescope’s Fly #4 will surpass your personal discomfort threshold. That’s not even counting the actual STORY! Jump, if you dare…
Zenescope Entertainment has released a trailer for the upcoming Fly #1 by Raven Gregory and Eric J.
Who’s afraid of flying, but loves buttermilk? If you are playing B.A. Baracus in 20th Century Fox’s A-Team movie, then you better be able to pull it off.Â At least I hope that’s what Quinton “Rampage” Jackson plans as he steps up to the plate to play the muscle-bound hero of the movie.
The role of Baracus was one of the hardest to cast, as out of the all the characters from the special forces team forced to on the lam, it carries the most iconic qualities. The character was a highly skilled but ill-tempered mechanic who preferred milk over alcohol, loved to fight but was afraid to fly, and spouted catchphrases. The role made Mr. T into a household name.
50-cent, Common, and The Game were also considered for the part.Â The only cast member still waiting to find an actor is Howling Mad Murdoch.
With a bazillion people reading the Scott Pilgrim series, and the movie in production, it’s a pretty sure bet that merch will fly off the shelves when the movie hits.Â That is if Universal Studios Consumer Products Group can find someone to produce the clothing, accessories, action figures, novelties and whatnot.
When those figures do become available, I’m hoping they are the Bryan Lee O’Malley designs and not Michale Cera version.

“Working Mini-Marvels was cool, but G-MAN, VOL. 1: LEARNING TO FLYÂ is what I’ve been wanting to do for years,” Giarrusso said. “It’s the story I was wanting to write and draw the entire time doing Mini-Marvels so I’m happy those fans are psyched by the collection. G-MAN and company are going to be taking up all my attention for the foreseeable future and I aim to make the long-time Mini-Marvels readers happy!”

As the new year begins, itâ€™s always a good idea to take a moment and look back at 2008 and examine my favorite Major Spoilers moments for the year that make running Major Spoilers one of my most favorite jobs in the world.
There were a lot of complaints about the second season of NBC’s Heroes – from the lackluster storyline to the writer’s strike causing the season to end abruptly, fans were less than amused with the sophomore trials of the series.Â Unfortunately, those feelings are still reverberating into the third season.
The Hollywood Reporter has viewership for the season three two-hour premiere down 25% from last year.
The “Heroes” debut (9.9 million viewers, 4.9 preliminary adults 18-49 rating and a 12 share and matched its lowest original episode rating ever. (“Heroes” was actually down even more, 33%, if you include NBC’s heavily protested move last fall to roll its Saturday encore rating into its premiere). Clip show lead-in “Heroes: Countdown to the Premiere” (6 million, 2.6/7)Â placed third in the hour.
If the ratings don’t pick up, you can expect some heavy changes and shuffling to occur as the network scrambles to save the show.Â I did get a chance to watch the premiere, and while good, it felt a lot like season one mixed with the remake of the Fly movie.
Archie Comics has gotten a lot of publicity with its realistic interpretations of the Archie gang, and the latest installment to get this treatment is Pals-n-Gals Double Digest #125, that features the break up of Midge and Moose – and you aren’t going to believe who Midge is dating.

Green Lantern #30 was highly anticipated in the Hill household, as I would get to see part 2 of what I believe to be a 3 part origin story, and it didnâ€™t disappoint. Beautiful artwork, beautiful storytelling, and just the right amount of twist to give the story a new breath of fresh air.
Now donâ€™t get me wrong, the Green Lantern origin story is one of the greatest there is. It is simple, uncomplicated; Abin Sur crashes, Hal Jordan is brave. What more do you want?
But the GL origin story was, more often than not, part of a greater story. This time, it is the story!
