Recently, site head honcho Stephen Schleicher reported that Cartoon Network’s Beware the Batman was no longer on the air. He noted that some rumors have been circulating that the animated show might return in January. Sound familiar to anyone?

This week, I have a special conversation with Robert Venditti, who created The Surrogates (which was turned into a major motion picture). He’s doing terrific things with Valiant’s X-O Manowar, which he discusses, including the upcoming Unity event, which will begin in November. We also talk about his work on DC’s Green Lantern, so don’t miss it!

Now, we can debate the quality of the film, which is fine. But I’m intrigued that we’re not hearing about “superhero fatigue” nearly as much this year.

I’ve always been a fan of when heroes from different universes meet (or clash, as the case may be). For instance, I would love to see a new Marvel/DC crossover take place. Justice League of America/Avengers is still one of my all-time favorite books!
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)
