Also, a bit off topic, but was I the only one who liked the Metal Men series where they were retconned into having been real people that Magnus had worked with, who he'd put into the bodies to save them? I thoiught that was interesting, and I was really annoyed when DC retconned that later to have all been in Magnus's head.
You're talking about the Mike Carlin/Dan Jurgens mini-series of about 1993/4?
Yeah, I liked that. And I liked how Magnus himself became one of the Metal Men at the end.
I was disappointed to learn a few years ago that that story was no longer in continuity. Much like the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale Challengers of the Unknown
story, which I also loved the heck out of.
