No. 1 —tie— Mysterio [ASM 026 and 206] Multiple Man [WXM 013 and 205] WHY I WANTED THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE: Well, both are longtime favorite characters of mine. I became a Madrox fan back in Peter David’s first X-Factor run and even more so with the character’s solo mini that led into the […]

No. 6 Question [WizKids D-008] WHY I WANTED HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE: Well, he’d be an addition to my Trenchcoat Brigade theme of long-coated figs. But with A) him being a convention exclusive, and B) me hating team bases and C) there being little incentive for owners to sell or trade him as a […]
