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.

PLEASE.

GENIUS.

Ha, I just saw this.

If he's going to do this, he should use Darkhawk and the whole Excelsior team in Runaways, but I can't remember if Darkhawk left... :?

I'm confused, but it has nothing to do with a magic amulet that turn a kid into a giant robot.

He's still talking about it in the next e-mail.

I think this might be happening.

But I want Excelsior as well. :(

He's gauging responses.

Proj I hope you are writing and encouraging him.

I would but he wouldn't listen to me. I'm an American. :D

Maybe I'll reply telling him to read Runaways Vol. 4 and then he can write Darkhawk.

You know what was supprisingly good? Dark Hawk in War Machine MAXX written by...




....wait for it...














Chuck Austin.

It was pretty entertaining. Doom was good. Decent use of AIM. Didn't really let you know it was in its own little universe though. Had to figure that one out for myself. MODOK was the best part of it tho. All the living bits had died and it was just the equipment keeping it running. Giant floating skull that did whatever you told it to.
