The Major League Soccer playoffs begin today and run through November 20, when the last two teams standing will play for the MLS Cup. This year's title game will be held at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., home stadium of the Los Angeles Galaxy, who once again compiled the best regular-season record to win the Supporters' Shield and are, at least on paper, the team to beat. "They have the perfect mix of superstars, young talent and veterans who have been in the league a long time," says ESPN's Adrian Healey. "All over the park they are solid. Defensively they've been very hard to...

And you thought your family reunions were tense? Supergirl's first meeting with her cousin as an adult results in a seismic showdown in Siberia.

Here comes the Injustice League! In tonight's episode of Cartoon Network's Young Justice, a secret society of super villains emerges — and there's some cool voice casting on the roster. Star Trek: The Next Generation's Brent Spiner (who appeared on last night's Big Bang Theory) stars as the Joker, while Charmed vet Alyssa Milano plays Poison Ivy.
We sure are gonna miss Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Only a handful of episodes remain of the exuberant Cartoon Network series, and clearly there's no been no slacking off in the writers' room. This week's installment, "Triumvirate of Terror" (airing Friday, October 7 at 6/5c), is a charming and lighthearted tribute to the "Big 3" of DC Comics, with Superman and Wonder Woman teaming up with the Dark Knight. The trio meets at a diner for a meal of bacon cheeseburgers, fries and shakes while discussing what items to leave in a superhero time capsule. The fun doesn't last for long when their archenemies — the Joker, Lex Luthor and Cheetah — plan a team-up of their own. After years of futility they decide to switch ...

(originally slated to air in May), guest-starring Green Lantern and Wonder Woman (in an awesome opening segment).
As if his day job as co-executive producer on Supernatural didn't take him to enough dark places, Adam Glass' new gig writing DC Comics' Suicide Squad is also packed with depravity. The comic book, whose first issue goes on sale Wednesday as part of DC's relaunch of its entire line, features a team of hardened super villains who are recruited into a government black ops team as a way to reduce their prison sentences. Their missions are brutal and bloody (the first issue includes a harrowing torture sequence) and as the name of the team implies, survival is never guaranteed.
Neil Patrick Harris is fast becoming the busiest man in show business, so it's fitting that he'd be working on Labor Day. The How I Met Your Mother star — whose summer activities included hosting the Tony Awards, starring in the box office hit The Smurfs, and a guest-judging stint on So You Think You Can Dance — guest stars on next Monday's episode of the Cartoon Network whimsical series Adventure Time...
