I wrote “The Bad Side of Town” with the strange idea in my head the Magnetica can’t speak. Afterwards, I went back and read “Robo-Scouse” in which I had actually had her talk a blue streak! *Wah wah wah…* This is my (not necessarily needed, but it makes me happy) attempt to fix it.

The little pink guy, Terri-Bull, is from the M.U.S.C.L.E. toyline from the 1980s. It was based on Kinnikuman, a Japanese property about galactic wrestlers. The (much) bigger figure is a recent articulated version of the same character, called Buffaloman in Japan.
