What exactly was Moss Man's backstory? Was he made of moss? Or did he have the power to cover things in moss?
I loved more Stinkor.
Two things...First, I totally agree with the earlier post about the violence. The very idea that a writer has the notion to toss the baby out the window and then some 'artist' has the ability to draw it offends! Since Red Skull is a mainstay bad guy, we know that he's not going to get what he has coming to him (justice-wise) and therefore the idea of a revenge plot is pointless. The reason a story like TAKEN worked was that Liam's character DOES get revenge for the abduction of his daughter. Will red skull wind up splattered on the streets? I doubt it. I think that violence (in comics as well as in film) works best when it's done the way Hitchcock did it. Otherwise its Gore-nography.Second, check out my blog for some cool images from the Star Wars display at the Indy Museum.www.darknessaftermathreport.blogspot.com
I, too, agree with the last post, re, Marvel's sick violence.I opened that issue, saw the gun to the baby's head, and put it down. I'm done with the Ultimate line of books now--and I wasn't really sold on them to begin with after Ultimatum. Old Man Logan was more of the same garbage.Violence can be used to make a point, this was just the comics version of torture porn. I've read a lot of comics, and a lot of violent comics as well, there's a place for hard violence, and it's not in a comic with Captain America on the cover. Not something a kid could pick up. Marvel should be ashamed.
Oops! I accidently closed the violence post's comment section. It's back up.
Jim Just found your blog recently and I think its really awesome! Just thought I would comment. My blog is fairly new, check it out if you have a chance.http://shaunstroup.blogspot.com/
Wiki has this about Moss Man:"As his name indicates, he is a man made of moss, whose power is to camouflage into foliage and other green areas (making him a useful spy), as well as control all plant life. He lives in the Evergreen Forest in harmony among the animals and plants."I thought he was a bad guy, but nope. I like him better as a villain.
At first, I didn't like Moss Man.I do now. He slowly grew on me.
Did he grow on you.... LIKE MOSS?!!!!:)
Jim my man, you are the dork that i lack the self discipline to be.You have now earned a place on my daily feed, right there between oneplusinfinity and illdoctrine. Moss man does rule, doesn't he? i never realized. An anecdote before i go..when i was little my father thought the word "penis" was inappropriate so he dubbed our wee trouser trouts manee's. "my manee hurts"..and so forth. Imagine our delight when He-man made the acquaintance of the heroic human..robot..monster Man-E-Faces. good times.
Another figure we won't be able to get from Mattel
Did Mattel cancel the figure? Pics 3 & 4 were from Toy Fair showcasing this year's new He-Man Classic figures. I want me some Moss Man, Man!
