Moss-Man

    Moss-Man smelled like pine needles, probably from sleeping in the forest undergrowth. He was a master of camoflage, unless of course he was removed from the forest, or anything green.

    He was described as a heroic spy, but I really doubt he was smart enough to do any actual spying. He was more of a lumbering freak.

    Moss-Man sneak-attacking Tri-Klops, Tri-Klops is all "What the Hell is that?" He seems to have respect for Moss-Man's bashing club though, probably wise.

    Mossman was pretty cool, but what's the deal with his weapon? I presume that it is some sort of mace... how the heck are you supposed to use one of those to defend against a sword attack? Or even worse... numchucks?

    Moss man didn't come with any fancy gun or jet propultion pack, no, he didn't need items like that to prove his power. Moss man onlt weapon was that of sheer brutality. Armed with only a wooden club Moss Man was able to strike fear into the heart most anyone who attempted to battle him. And good god he was covered in Moss! Thats pretty damn cool if you ask me.

    Yeah I really wasn't too sure on that. It was in that same linguistic grey area as sammich/sandwich when I was thinking of it in my head. :)

    I assume he did a lot of sneak attacking, blending with his surroundings to effect the element of surprise. After that it must have been all bash first ask questions later. He had a twist action waist, so you know he packed a punch.

    Still, Tri-Klops fired lasers out of his eyes, what good is a mace there ?

    hey mr. tall, i had a dream that you were swinging off a chandelere and fell off and died - but then you arose and came back to life - oh yeah, when i awoke from the dream, it was easter sunday.

    i thought you might like to know that you *may* be jesus - although i can't confirm it.

    Here is another flamer from He Man land. I guess this guy's super power is that his neck pops up. Gee I wish I had that super power. He certainly strikes fear in his enemies with his neck all extended. Wow! He could probably see over fences and such. All I can say is that he had better have a bottle opener on that club somewhere or he's totally fucking useless.

    I hope the chandaliere was ok.

    I was gonna post Stinkor, but he pretty much deserves his own thread

    Moss-Man reflects lasers, and freshens your car with piney goodness

    Anyone remember that He-Man car-thing? You'd put a plastic stick with rivets inside, and pull it out, the wheels would turn and then it would just go? Well, once, after I revved it up, I put it to my sister's head, and it wound a whole bunch of her hair into the wheels. She screamed and ran after me with the He-Man car thing dangling from her head.

    My mom had to cut her hair, cuz there was no way that fucker was coming off any other way.

    cheap rip-off of alan moore's SWAMP THING

    (created by the same comic book legend responsible for THE WATCHMEN, V FOR VENDETTA, BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE, FROM HELL, et al.)

    then again, he-man was a cheap rip-off of the old hercules cartoon (same storylines where the good guy would be losing until able to activate his super-power ...)

    ... and i guess lion-o of THE THUNDERCATS was a rip-off too ...

    lion-o had the best battle cry.

    "by the power of greyskull ... i have the power!!!!!" was not as cool as "thunder ... thunder ... thunder!!! thundercats!!! hooooooooo!!!!!!"

    ..and Swamp Thing smelled like.. well, like swamp.

    BBB.

    Ewwwww.

    (Although Swamp Thing is my favourite comic book of all time, esp the Alan Moore years.

    BTW, Swamp Thing was created by Bernie Wrightson and the original stories written by Len Wein, Alan Moore came on later and REALLY evolved the character to new heights.)

    That stumpy guy on He-Man's team was pretty cool, even if his super power wasn't much than the guy with the extending head. Only stumpy guy's whole torso would extend, and he would ram stuff. I think his name was Ram Man or something obvious like that. No pine-scented goodness, but he made up for it with head-bashing goodness.

    I would argue that all of the above, although not stupid, were highly gheigh.

    Don't make me prove it.
