NBC has released seven images from "The Line," the Monday, Oct. 29 episode of Heroes.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"West (Nick D'Agosto) convinces Claire (Hayden Panettiere) to teach head cheerleader Debbie (guest-star Dianna Agron) a lesson after she deems Claire too ordinary to join the squad. While Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) faces a serious moral dilemma with the Company, H.R.G. (Jack Coleman) pays his Russian mentor a visit in an effort to locate Isaac's last prophetic paintings.

"Meanwhile, nearing the U.S. border, Alejandro (Shalim Ortiz) becomes increasingly uneasy about Sylar's (Zachary Quinto) intentions, especially towards Maya (Dania Ramirez). Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) and Caitlin's (Katie Carr) search for a mysterious doorway he painted ultimately leads them to a surprising place. In feudal Japan, while attempting to repair history, Hiro (Masi Oka) struggles with his feelings for Kenseišs (David Anders) 'princess' Yaeko (guest-star Eriko Tamura)."

Beginning Monday, Papa John's is offering a Super-Hero XL3 pizza in conjunction with the Oct. 30 release of Spider-Man 3 on DVD.

Papa John's customers can purchase the Super-Hero XL3 -- a three-topping, extra-large, 16-inch pizza (30 percent bigger than Papa John's large size) in a box featuring Spider-Man 3 on DVD -- for $12.99. And, while supplies last, all Papa John's orders include a $3-off instantly redeemable coupon for the Spider-Man 3 DVD.

Halloween is consistently one of the top three nights of the year in the pizza industry, ranking alongside the Super Bowl and the night before Thanksgiving.

"This year, while the kids are dressed up as their favorite super-heroes, families can treat themselves to the Super-Hero XL3 pizza and enjoy Spider-Man 3 on DVD as they wind down from a big night of trick-or-treating," said Jim Ensign, vice president, marketing communications for Papa John's International, Inc.

Papa John's will begin airing a new commercial spot on Monday highlighting the promotion. The ad features footage from Spider-Man 3.

In addition, for a limited time, Spider-Man-themed Papa Card gift cards will be available at all Papa John's restaurants and other retailers where Papa Cards are sold. Papa Card gift cards are available in $5 increments.

Prior to the Spider-Man 3 release on Oct. 30, Papa John's and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will collaborate on a DVD launch event next Monday in New York City's Times Square. Papa John's founder John Schnatter will play host to Spider-Man, Spider-Man 3 director Sam Raimi, along with others from the entertainment industry. The action-packed press event happening outside the NASDAQ MarketSite on 43rd and Broadway,will feature Spider-Man performing some of his acrobatic feats from the Spider-Man trilogy.

Papa John's and Spider-Man will then make a "special delivery" to honorary heroes that will kick off a campaign giving away more than $1 million worth of Super-Hero XL3 pizzas nationwide.

Cartoon Network will premiere Ben 10: Race Against Time, a live-action movie based on its animated series, on Nov. 21 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).

Graham Phillips stars in the role of Ben Tennyson, a normal 10-year-old boy who is able to transform himself into a variety of super aliens like the powerful Heatblast or the beastly Wildmutt. Haley Ramm, who played the young Jean Grey in X-Men: The Last Stand, is Gwen, Ben's level-headed 10-year-old cousin and Lee Majors stars as Grandpa Max, who uses his past experiences with the paranormal to guide and protect his grandchildren, Ben and Gwen, through their many adventures in fighting evil.

Christien Anholt plays Eon of Chronia, Ben's nemesis in the movie. Eon was the first alien ever captured by Max's secret organization, The Plumbers. The now-escaped Eon is trying to locate the doomsday device that was taken and hidden when he was captured. The device is capable of opening a gateway to Earth, signaling the start of an alien invasion that would mark the end of humankind.

Alex Winter, best known from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, is the director.

Leading up to the movie, Cartoon Network will air a marathon of animated Ben 10 episodes on Nov. 21, beginning at 10 a.m. (ET/PT) and hosted by the stars of Race Against Time.

* Ford Lytle Gilmore is writing Dynamite Entertainment's new Darkman series, which launches in December.

"I've long thought that Darkman was one of the greatest comic-book movies ever made, even if it wasn't actually based on a comic book." Gilmore said. "Peyton Westlake is a very real, very flawed, very human character living in this over-the-top world. When Nick (Barrucci) told me what Dynamite was doing with the Army of Darkness crossover and how they wanted to do an ongoing series building upon that, it was hard to pass up the opportunity to be a part of it."

Joining Gilmore on the series are artist Tommy Smith and cover artists Tomm Coker and Fabiano Neves. Gilmore was co-executive producer on Coker's Catacombs movie that is currently airing on FEARnet.

* The Friday, Nov. 9 episode of Sci Fi Channel's Flash Gordon is titled "Sorrow."
