Quote:Not too eager to see Shazzan as his whole point seemed to be a deus ex machina character, there was no real tension to his stories as his magic seemed able to do anything, it had the appeal of a cat playing with a caught mouse. The ending being a foregone conclusion, the only question as to how creative he could be in dragging it out to fill the time slot.
Quote:I'm sure they'll find a way to limit him, or come up with a threat imposing enough he can't immediately defeat.
I suspect (and hope) you're right. It seems plausible. Probably he couldn't make an entire city disappear, for example.
Quote:We're missing all the Scooby Doo riffs, though it would be cool to see a serious take on the Blue Falcon here as a competent and respected superhero (just leave Dynomutt at home, even as a kid I never cared for him, more useless than Robin).
I always thought of Blue Falcon and Dinomutt as the superhero alternate universe versions of Shaggy and Scoob.
Actually, I think it would be cool to have another Future Quest-style comic but focused on Blue Falcon and Dinomutt, the Scooby Gang, Devlin, Inch High Private Eye, and any other Hanna Barbera characters who sort of fit the secret agent or private eye or Batman motif. Were there any Hanna Barbera secret agents? I'm sure there must have been.
