Building up the Wreckers

In the Transformers universe, the Wreckers are a special task force supposedly composed of the deadliest, toughest and often times craziest warriors in the Autobot ranks. They’re basically the team that handles the missions that no other bots would want. A last resort solution designed to come in and blow everything up.

Man, Monkey...or Bird?

If there’s one major identifying trait in the He-Man universe, it’s that it is populated by some of the most unique and oftentimes strangest characters. Nothing is off limits in this universe. Animorphic warriors, cybernetic cowboys, demonic ninjas and even evil plant people are just some of the interesting creatures that inhabit this fantasy world. But if you were looking for one of the oddest of the bunch, I would say you wouldn’t have to look farther than the beginning of the Masters of The Universe toyline.

The Mutant Messiah

It is pretty much second nature for a kid, that when confronted with a group of new colorful characters in a new lineup of toys or comic book to immediately pick a favorite. The basis of which varies for person to person, but in most cases it usually boils down to who looks the coolest. It was many years ago when I picked up my very first issue of Uncanny X-Men and was introduced to the merry world of mutants. For someone already familiar with Marvel’s flagship heroes like Captain America, Iron Man and Thor, meeting all these new interesting characters was a treat and even before actually reading the issue I set off to find who my favorite X-Man would be.
