    He survived from Age of Apocalypse, didn't do anything for awhile, and then started being like a Mr. Sinister type character, iirc.

    He escaped into the 616 Universe from the Age of Apocalypse Universe. Something involving the M'kraan Crystal if i remember correctly.

    He was one of the only characters to make it over into regular continuity, along with Nate Grey and Sugar Man. Yayyyy Sugar Man!

    Did Sugar Man ever do anything in 616? Is he still alive?

    And what about Nate Grey for that matter? Did he explode like he was going to or is he still around somewhere?

    Nate is gone, not sure about Sugar Man. Pretty sure Dark Beast was actually sent into 616's past and was retconned as being responsible for the Morlocks. The mutant massacre was retconned into a kind of turf war between Sinister and Dark Beast if I recall.

    I think Nate Grey got smeared across the universe to save everyone from insert-catastrophe-here. The door is open if they ever want to bring him back.

    Alright dudes, I have 2 questions:

    Are there any collections of the original Blue Beetle? Or anything of Dan/Ted besides Action Heroes Archives?

    I've seen scans of a Teen Titans series with Robin showing Kid Flash around the Batcave which were pretty awesome. What book are they from?

    Dan's stuff is currently only available in the Archive books. Ted's series by Len Wein and Paris Cullins was never collected, but I wouldn't rule out a Showcase book some time in the future. But Ted's best and most memorable appearances, in Justice League International, are currently being collected in hardbacks. There's currently three volumes out. You can also check out the more recent Formerly Known as the Justice League and I Can't Believe It's Not the Justice League, though both tend to keep Ted in the background a bit. Oh, and the most recently collected arc of Booster Gold's book, Booster Gold: Blue and Gold, has a heavy focus on Ted.

    During the assault, Sugar Man took advantage of the chaos to escape, jumping into the M'Kraan Crystal—the "Nexus of all realities"—and vanished. He appeared in "our" timeline, arriving in an unspecified location some twenty years in the past. Sugar Man then traveled to Genosha, where he contacted the Genegineer and gave him the formula for the mutate bonding process which forcibly enslaved hundreds of mutants to the human Magistrates. He worked in secret, occasionally showing himself to torment X-Man or others. He survived the destruction of the first Genoshan government, led by the Genegineer and Cameron Hodge. He worked behind the scenes affecting the seemingly more peaceful new government run by Sasha Ryan.

    Eventually this government fell into a brutal civil war. During this clues to his existence were uncovered in a hidden facility by a team consisting of Cable, Domino, Jenny Ransome, Phillip Moreau and the brainwashed assistance of the ex-Magistrate Pipeline. The clues that led the team to Sugar Man's base were passed to Phillip by Mister Sinister. He kept to himself until after Genosha was destroyed by the wild Sentinel attack on the island that was orchestrated by Cassandra Nova.

    He reappeared after Genosha was destroyed, emerging to try and kill a band of Magistrates who were exploring the island with the Dark Beast. Callisto and Karima Shapandar confronted Sugar Man and severely injured -if not seemingly killed- him with a pipe through the head.

    However, he has since reappeared alive in X-Men #200, during the Endangered Species crossover, having been contacted by Beast for information to reverse the effects of M-Day.

    Dazzler, in the dimension ruled by Mojo has encountered child-like versions of the Age of Apocalypse villains, including Sugar Man. These entities were seemingly created by Mojo himself, then he lost control.

    I'm surprised Mike Carey made that kind of mistake to be honest.

    On a total side note, you know what shits me about comic stuff in Wiki? There is never enough references to when something happened. Like, WHEN did Sugar Man die? What issue, what series?

    I know people try to do it, but it's very hit and miss.

    While they were usually pretty fucked up, and quite often little more than Ditko jerking off over Objectivism, the Mr. A comics I've read were really beautiful to look at, and contained some really interesting ideas for the time the character was conceived. Here are some scans and a lengthy history on the character.

    X-Men Evolution got pretty good once the focus moved away from high school drama, and of course there's the whole DCAU to consider. Outside of licensed cartoons, Megas XLR is my favorite.

    I didn't dig X-men evolution, but that may have been related to the fact that I tried to watch it on TV, and kept having to deal with reruns. Also, everything major from the 90s I've seen.

    What is this Megas XLR?

    What is this Megas XLR?

    Here's the intro.
    In the distant future of 3037, Earth is fighting a losing war with an alien race known as the Glorft. In order to save the planet, the human resistance steals a prototype giant robot from the Glorft and modifies it, renaming it Megas (Mechanized Earth Guard Attack System). The idea was to send Megas back in time to the Battle of the Last Stand in 3035, which was the last major offensive fought by humanity against the Glorft. Humanity lost that battle, but the members of the resistance believe that Megas can tip the scales and hand the Glorft a decisive defeat.

    Before the plan can be executed, an attack by the Glorft forces the human resistance to send Megas back in time ahead of schedule. Kiva, one of the main architects of the plan, decides to pilot it and attempts to transfer into it from her own mech. During the attempt, Megas' head is blown off by enemy fire, destabilizing its timedrive and sending the robot to 1936. Megas languishes in a New Jersey junkyard until it ends up in the hands of two slackers, Coop and Jamie (who bought it for two dollars which Coop didn't pay anyway), around the year 2004. Coop turns Megas into a hot rod project and names it XLR, for eXtra Large Robot.

    Kiva and the Glorft also go back in time in the hopes of retrieving Megas, arriving in Coop's time. When Kiva finds it she discovers that she is unable to pilot it because of Coop's modifications: because the Glorft attack destroyed Megas' head, Coop had to jerry-rig together a new set of controls using a car and various videogame controls. Coop's constant video game playing has made him the perfect pilot for the remodeled Megas, so Kiva grudgingly decides to train Coop in Megas' proper use until she can repair the timedrive. (which Coop destroyed with a golf club)

    I noticed that some of the creative team behind The Brave and the Bold was also behind Ben 10. Is it any good?

    Also, a few months ago, I noticed toys in Wal-Mart that looked like a red and white Megaman knock off. Are they from a cartoon series?
