I am alone and slightly pissed off and having a few drinks and
looking through the Marvel research stuff I mentioned earlier,
and I found this.. thing. That apparently supported its own
title at some point.
It is called DARKHAWK.
According to this character bio I found, Darkhawk is some
American kid who, through use of a special amulet...
...turns into a robot.
And, even better, somewhere down the storyline, he discovered
that his mind was simply transferred into the robot, which
swapped places with him teleportationally from its storage
unit in subspace, MIRACLEMAN-stylee (kinda).
But seriously. Magic amulet turns kid into robot.
I swear to you, I'm not so drunk that I'm making this up.
(Bad Signal pal Danny Fingeroth was the writer, apparently,
working from a concept developed by Tom DeFalco.)
Stop me from pitching this as some appalling blood-and-guts
Marvel MAX adult project.
