Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Secret Wars Memorial Edition


When I was young, I used to love coming home from school and checking out the adventures of the Transformers, G.I. Joe and lesser luminaries such as Jayce & the Wheeled Warriors.  (They were pretty awful.  Seriously, feel free to Google it.  I’ll wait…)  The fact that I could go to my local TG&Y and Duckwalls and purchase the plastic representations of my cartoon pals was, to my mind, nothing but a bonus.  These days, the things that entertain kids like my Widget have a lot more scrutiny applied to them, with the expectation that there be some educational component involved, rather than base marketing concerns (which in a way is sort of a shame.)  At least I can comfort myself in knowing that kids like myself who grew up wanting to buy Metroplex can get a Superman t-shirt, a replica Green Lantern ring or even my own sonic screwdriver, which in turn begs a query…
