We think it might be… transformative." No? Okay, then, Transformers: Primacy #4, as you were. Looks like four idiots to me, Snoopy, from Peanuts #23. But what does it make the bullets out of? Bullets fired at it? Shell casings? Itself? Eventually, Magnus #8, there will be nothing left… Lumberjanes #8 finds a way to feed the world. Not to[...]

Though usually these kind of things seem to revolve around diamond jewellery that, apparently, has sentimental value. Or, as in Magnus #0, do you decide to become wedding confetti? Strangely enough Doc Savage gives us a situation that just never ever happened to The Mole Man Or maybe he just never cared if he was covered in[...]

Though that might make for a more interesting episode of X-Files. While Magnus #4 has a robot developing a sever case of Stockholm syndrome There must be a patch for that by now… Eye Of Newt #1 gives us a new public transport option, though I'm not sure if dragons would be a solution to smog or[...]
