Power Lords #1 (1983)
Does anyone remember the Power Lords action figures as a kid? Probably not many of you. It was kind of high-concept sci-fi stuff that your grandfather probably liked if he watched Doctor Who. I mean, it feels like DUNE with a prince of mystical origin and all that. Sadly, Patrick Stewart wearing a pug into battle is nowhere to be found.
Regardless, DC did a comic to promote the gimmicks featuring one of the most veiny protagonists outside of John Cena. He’s teamed up with Red Tornado in an owl costume to take on a space crab and his friends. There’s also a snooty astrologist because kids love condescending colleagues wherever they can get them.
