I know when I was younger and I collected Masters of the Universe I was more excited to get the villains then I was to get heroes. The reason being is that my Mother always bought the heroes for me – since they always looked nicer. I mean that she THOUGHT they looked like nicer toys to play with. I used to beg her to pick me up a Beast Man, Skunkor, I would have even settled for an Evil-Lyn. Let’s be honest – as much as you root for the good guys a lot of the time they truly don’t have a purpose when there isn’t a bad guy to square them off against.
That’s why I was so excited to see that they Playskool Heroes finally decided to release the Abomination (even a small one stuck in a car) to battle against the Hulk. Every hero deserves a villain to match wits or strength against. It’s what makes them so fun to read. Who would Sherlock be without his Moriarty? Kudos to Playskool for this move – now give us a Leader!
