> ...the GG posed as a successful sculptor who specialized in life-size female figures? Well, it turned out to be the GG freezing women into stautues and selling them. Not a bad twist on the GG formula, I thought. And fairly creative for a single-issue story.

Emphasize being a single story. Unless you wanna go the creepy Purple Man route, there isn't much potential there.
> About the same time, the Radioactive Man took a job as a regular (non-green) human being at the huge science-based corporation so he could use their resources to conduct his own experiments. That made sense to me; no reason that he necessarily has to be green, toting a glue gun, and wearing a mini-tunic.

Radioactive Man never had a glue gun. You're thinking of someone else ;\)
> Over the years, we've seen many, many criminals used creatively and imaginatively, and also the opposite: some have been ruined by 'progress,' like the Plant Man and Black Tom.
> I see no reason why the GG can't fly around in his costume causing havok; maybe he could have the Fixer make him invisible when he wants to be, so that he can sneak up on those he wants to turn to stone.

You seem to mistake formidable with growth. There's a difference. Until GG gets some growth as a character, cannod fodder is the best he deserves.
> I belive he'd make an excellent addition to any new Masters of Evil.

As muscle, maybe. On his own, much less so.

...during his time with the Masters of Evil incarnations 1 & 2/3 (since Klaw led the third MOE rather than Ultron), the Radioactive Man did indeed carry and use a glue gun, which emitted a kind of glue-ish white plaster that was fairly strong and gave the Avengers a run for their money.

He may have even utilized it as late as the Klaw-led MOE excusion in Rutland, Vermont, when the MOE attacked the Avengers and was stopped by the Lady Liberators. In fact, he may have used it during Egghead's MOE.

In this cover from Avengers 55, you see him holding the gun; on the cover of 54, you see Giant Man bound in the substance. If anyone has any panels from inside the books further showing the gun and its discharge, please post.

As far as the GG sculptor story, MOST stories at that time were, thankfully, one-shots. There were longer stories only occasionally. So your criticism holds no water on that particular ground.
