There Will Be a New Multiple Man Action Figure!
Once upon a time, we lived in a world where there were no action figures of my favorite superhero, Multiple Man. It made no sense. His super power is to make multiple copies of himself. That automatically means a person should buy multiple action figures! It makes so much sense! I wrote about this year ago, when we didn’t have such action figures.
Since then, we got a sweet Marvel Legends Multiple Man figure. And it looks like we’re getting another one, based on his original comic book costume!
It’s part of a classics line, packaged in old timey action figure packaging. That’s pretty neat. I used to buy X-Men action figures when they were packaged like that, and I would have loved to have a Multiple Man figure back then. I guess I’ll just have to settle for this one now.
The new figure goes on sale in April, I believe. Here’s hoping I can get a couple for my shelf!
Strong Guy Watch: Sometimes We Do Get Nice Things
It’s a good day, my friends. Just yesterday I was talking about how I enjoy spotting my favorite comic book characters when they randomly show up. And it’s happened again! In the best possible way! If you’re subscribed to Marvel Unlimited, you’ve had access to some Marvel web comics, including an X-Men book. And as if Marvel was reading my mind, this week’s issue kicks off a new story starring a friendly reunion between Multiple Man and Strong Guy!
Even better, the whole thing is written and drawn by creator Jason Loo. Remember him? He’s the incredible fan who created his own Madrox fan comic and got discovered by Marvel honchos on Twitter and was brought on to do real Marvel work for the recent X-Corp comic.
I won’t spoil what happens in this issue — available now — but it features a real, awesome reunion between Jamie and Guido that recognizes that the two are best pals. I think that’s the first time we’ve seen such a thing in years! There’s also some quality time with wife, Layla Miller, and their son, along with some X-Corp cameos. And the comic will continue!
Jason Loo is the Multiple Man fan in all of us, and he’s getting to actually take the reigns on the character. This is a pretty good dream come true.

Happy vacation, everybody! Vacation for me, that is. I’m finally taking a week off from work for the first time this year, and oh man, I needed it. I need a week to just relax and do not much of anything. Thankfully, I’ve got the likes of Batman, X-Men and X-Corp to kick it off.
Comic Book of the Week goes to X-Men: Onslaught Revelation for a truly excellent and exciting end to this chapter of the story. I have loved Way of X, more so than I thought I would, and the first part of Sy Spurrier’s X-Men epic has come to an exciting end!
Meanwhile, I don’t have much planned for my vacation. Can’t exactly travel anywhere. I’ll go visit my parents, I’ve got a dentist’s appointment, and Venom: Let There Be Carnage will come out at the end of the week. That should be fun. Mostly I’ll just relax and spend some more time playing No Man’s Sky. It’s also pretty fun!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/17/21
What a time to be a comic book fan! Black Widow came out a week ago! Loki just ended a wonderful season, with a promise of more. And we’ve got Multiple Man making awesome multiple moves in a regular comic again! Life is good.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #9 for just another consistently wonderful comic book about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
Meanwhile, things are going to be a little different around here…sort of. I’ve decided that I give too many details away in my synopsis. So I’m gonna try to dial that back. I still want to be a review place where I can talk about spoilers and stuff…but I also want you readers to buy the comics and enjoy them yourselves. Don’t read me just to avoid buying comics! I love buying and reading comics!
