Every few years or so I go through a creative
explosion triggered by inexternal influences.
Round about the early 1980's, the comic
book industry was having a Renaissance
of sorts & consequently ideas were
flowing like hot melted butter
over the corny cob of my brain.
One such idea, entitled 'Manican',
was not entirely original at the
time (unbeknown to me), but
has resurfaced with James'
Cameron's mega-hit 'Avatar'.
In my version, an 8-year-old Kid
is a quadriplegic. His Scientist
Father gets booted out of the
Military Industrial Complex
for failing to complete new
super-soldier Robots that
work; only to have an
epiphany & succeed
in private. His Son,
of course, becomes
a New kind of Crime-
Fighter, living vicariously
through the animated 'Manican'...
