If any of you get the chance you should watch the documentary they did on him a while ago. Crumb Lotta insight into him and his family and the way he thinks. Very interesting.
Yeah, the Zwigoff movie? I watched that at college. Great film but his brother really depressed me... remember him? Sad.

And I know what you mean. I'm not a fan of that stuff either, a while ago I was actually gonna put up The Spirit's mostly-forgotten sidekick, Ebony White here.
I thought better of it though...

Well, Darwyn Cooke did that amazing reboot of the Spirit for DC awhile back and brought Ebony back. Not like the bad ole days. Great reimagining.

I liked Dennis back in the day. I never read the strip, but I watched cartoon. That movie with Walter Matthau ad Mr. Wilson was fun too.

For me though, when some says "Dennis the Menace" I'll think of this guy:



who's a bit more of a bad seed than US Dennis, I believe.

Wasn't even until like a few years ago that I even heard of the European version. Dudes a punker and I dig that. The adventures of Kid Sid Vicious.

The American version sucks.

Kid Sid Vicious is a really good description. Though I can't see Dennis stabbing Gnasher to death, then OD-ing in The Chelsea Hotel happening in the strips anytime soon...

It's funny though, both US and UK Dennis' have the same name and same basic premise but were thought up completely separately by their creators and -get this!- were both first published on either side of the Atlantic on the exact. Same. Day.

It made #3 on Cracked.Com's "The 5 Most Mind-Blowing Coincidences of All Time" article a few years back.

That's too much to be a coincidence. I mean they both of dogs for Christ's sake.

Somebody got wind of what the other was doing and totally ripped him off. Gotta be.

The American kid is not a menace, not to anyone other than Mr. Wilson
The other one is a real menace

Awesome villain.

I remember seeing a comic where the Predicons were on strike or something, hiding out in some jungle, Megatron walked in, beat the s**t outta them, then dragged the leader out by his tail. He's the evil version of Optimus. In every way really.

Didn't The Question describe a comic this villain is in? In the previous thread?
Something about mining, wars, him discovering he loves to fight and $#%^, etc...

Yeah, in the beginning, the Decepticons were the good guys, but it all went Quagmire on em.

Megatron is one of the coolest & coldest villains ever. I especially like him in his G1 version.

Megs is one of the better 80's toon/comics villains. Welker made that his signature role, to me anyway. Loved him on the latest toon, TF:Prime.. It's like Welker brought all the years of experience he's had into that performance.

As far as I'm concerned, the Mighty Morphin Rangers are the only Rangers.

But I'm a 90s kid so I'm probably biased.

What good can I say about Power Rangers? They are legacy characters moving forward and hardly look back
Tenure is over? Get out, no complaints

Grant Morrison's early cult character. From Wiki:

Zenith (Robert McDowell[1]) is a British superhero, who appeared in the science fiction comic 2000 AD. Created by writer Grant Morrison and artist Steve Yeowell, with original character designs by Brendan McCarthy, he first appeared in 2000 AD #535 (22 August 1987).
Shallow and sarcastic, Zenith was a distinctly Generation X superhero. Morrison used the Zenith serial to explore cultural differences between generations and criticize the Conservative Party.
Zenith was featured regularly in 2000 AD from 1987 until 1992, with occasional appearances since. The series was an early success for Morrison, who has since written popular works for DC and Marvel, and using his own characters.

Zenith, real name Robert McDowell, is the son of two members of Cloud 9, a super-team of the 1960s who had been created by the British military but rebelled and became hippies and psychedelic fashion icons. Zenith himself used his somewhat unreliable superhuman abilities not to fight evil but to promote his career as a pop singer. Shallow, spoilt, self-centred and initially cowardly, he was reluctantly dragged into the struggle against malevolent supernatural entities known as the Lloigor or "Many-Angled Ones".

I actually think I have some Zenith stuff sitting around. I should give it a look, I've enjoyed almost all the Morrison stuff I've read.
I think early stuff might be interesting...
