What was the last storyline or issue with the Micronauts ..err.. Microns that are on listed on this Micronauts #19 splash page? And why doesn't Bug have a series by now?! - if IDW Hasbro don't have the rights.

They last went by the group name Enigma Force. They had a mini, Incredible Hulks Enigma Force (around the time of Realm of Kings: Son of Hulk). New members at that time were Jarella's niece, another Death's Head variant named Carl, Psyklop.

And they made appearances during the "Minimum Carnage" arc that ran through various titles. New members during this were Flare, a Tinker Bell-like female, and Quark, a rocky guy. No appearances since then (2012?).

Bug was a member of the Knowhere Corps, which seems to be no more.

Acroyear, Biotron, and Mirotron cannot be used... at least not by those names, I guess.

I, too, wish there was a Bug ongoing.

Wouldn't mind seeing Cilicia again, either. She left the group ages ago. She was an Acroyear/Spartak, as well.

Thanks for the status info (as always).

Maybe Marvel should've hyped 'em more to not lose them by marketing their images on company jigsaw puzzles back then. ;\)

Did anyone, here, ever own this (nostalgic group shot) puzzle?:

Micronauts was just too hard of a sell. It was a strange niche within a niche. Marvel even tried to make them relevant with an X-Men mini and Secret Wars II tie-in, but that did nothing. IMO, had ROM not had the stronger MU connection, it probably would have died before or at the same time as Micronauts.
