Growing up, a lot of time was spent in front of the television learning social skills, spelling, and why you should always believe in an invisible hairy elephant. Sometimes the worlds created in children’s television shows are so magical and fun that we wished we could actually live there. Which brings us to this week’s Major Spoilers Poll of the Week! VOTE!
It’s time once again to pick the next trade paperback we will discuss on the Major Spoilers Podcast.
With Batman v Superman landing in theaters on March 25th, we’ve seen a lot of the pick your side type promotions going on, which includes popular breakfast cereals getting in on the act. Not one to be left behind, we have our own Batman v Superman debate for your consideration this week.
Recent discussions about the fate of Thag Simmons had me thinking about days long ago past, where reading the newspaper meant discovering items of world interest, seeing who was looking to hook up, and best of all, the comic section. Back in my day (yeah, yeah, quiet you), there were two must read strips that would never disappoint – The Far Side by Gary Larson, and Calvin and Hobbes, by Bill Watterson.
I’ve been spending a fair amount of time revisiting the Netflix Daredevil series in anticipation of the new season arriving on March 18th. While pondering what makes the show work, and why I want to see more, it made me wonder about other Marvel properties.
Sure, we’d all love to be adopted son or daughter of Bruce Wayne, or the ward of Matt Murdock.

When it comes to great parents, with a super dynamic, two spring to mind; The Parrs (The Incredibles) and The Richards (Fantastic Four). Given the choice, which parents would you like to have? VOTE!
When it comes to sounding off, many of us can go on a jag ranting and raving about comic books, working in call centers, or driving in Topeka. But when it comes to the Geek Rant, none can hold a candle to Kevin Smith and Max Landis. But who is the Geek Rant King? VOTE!
NBCUniversal completed its annual survey of Fandango users, asking them to pick their most anticipated movies of 2016. It’s a pretty good list, but I’m rather surprised Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is ranked number one. This leads to this week’s Major Spoilers Poll of the Week.
Marvel and DC both have Earth based shape shifters in the form of Sandman and Clayface. Each can be brought down with a well place gush of water, but if the two had to go against each other, who would win?

When it comes to robbing graves while seeking fortune and glory, two archeologists rise above all others – Lara Croft and Indiana Jones. But when it comes to the actual job, one has to wonder if Lara’s constant gunfire, or Indiana’s constant screaming for Marion to shut her eyes, get in the way of the job. If there are questions about their methods, then there must be a question about who is the better collector of rare artifacts? VOTE! Thanks to Silvergray for submitting this week’s Poll of the Week!
