"Bitch Better Have My Money!"

The End

Yeah how come Gerry Conway or later writers never addressed this point? I mean he was paid to do a job that he didn't do, so.......the Jackal should have a small claims case right here. Maybe?.....

So, Who Would Win?: The Fantastic Four VS. The Metal Men


For this week's edition of So Who Would Win?, I decided to try something out.

Let's say today's all-out battle used to be a traditional super-hero team-up....until Doom happened.
To Sum it all up;

The world is attacked by the combined might of the Gas Gang and Diablo, and confronted by their respective foes,

the Fantastic Four and Prof. Magnus and his Metal Men.

After their inevitable defeat, both Mr. Fantastic and Prof. Magnus attempt to make sense of these sudden and uncharacteristic attacks.
But both genius inventors don't get allowed time to reflect for very much longer when they're suddenly attacked by a seemingly endless array of Doombots!

Amazingly both teams survive the attack.

It's then that the architect of their misery, Doctor Doom makes his presence known.

It appears he orchestrated the whole thing, intentionally bringing both teams together so that they can essentially eliminate each other, while Doom collects the Metal Men and appropriates their responsometers for his own uses.

For this end, he;s developed a virus signal that will remotely and sonic-ally, attack each of the Metal Men's responsometers, effectively putting them solely under his control.

He activates the signal, and the Metal Men go cold and silent. The theory eyes begin to blaze an inhuman shade of red, and the Metal Men begin to attack their creator and the FF.

Dream Waves: Youngblood


What's up people? For this week's edition of Dream Waves, I'm going to step back a bit from my usual routine of showcasing waves of figures I'd like to see get made concerning either Marvel or DC. Nope, instead, I'm going to give companies like Image Comics a shot, as I talk about the figures I'd wish were made from certain Image Comics' franchises, like say Youngblood, Spawn, Savage Dragon and the like.

Today I'll be focusing on Rob Liefield's Youngblood.

Ah Youngblood. Rob Liefield's first published creation at Image comics, debuted in the fall of '92, selling millions in just a few short weeks, following the infamous exodus of seven artists from Marvel comics and the formation of Image Comics.

Giving the devil his due, it was with Youngblood that Liefield really explored the celebrity approach to superheroes in general, making Youngblood a high-profile government-sponsored superhero team that were media darlings for the most part. That particular angle of the genre hadn't really been explored before, or so publicly on a large scale before.

Despite being a trendsetter( if only for a very short period of time) Youngblood was plagued with chronic lateness and a long, coherent mission statement and purpose, with many starts and stops along its long published history. Even with high profile names like Alan Moore, Kurt Busiek and
Joe Casey working on the franchise, it just never took off and made a lasting impact beyond it's initial appearance like it was meant to.

Well today I'll be giving the team the spotlight by showcasing at least two waves' worth of figures that I'd like to see finally made and out for toy collectors to well, collect.


Youngblood Wave 1:

1). Shaft

2). Vogue

3). Chapel

4). Diehard

5). Sentinel

6). Combat

7). Batttlestone

BAF:   Badrock

Youngblood Wave 2:

1). Riptide

2). Knight Sabre

3). Cougar

4). Photon

There's the original male version, then He switched gender into a she. Alien culture thing apparently.

5). Suprema

6). Crypt

7). Dutch

BAF:  Troll

And that's just in two waves. I imagine I could stretch out another two waves' worth of material. Maybe next time.

I will say there's not really too many recurring villains to slide into these waves, outside of Crypt. Well I guess Warwolf, so there's that/
