Characters Appearing: Ken Reid, NFL Superpro, Repulsor
NFL Superpro #12
Issue(s): NFL Superpro #12
Repulsor eventually makes his way to America to target Roxxon.
Superpro is busy trying to get footage of himself on television.
The interesting bit is that after the lip service that Superpro gave, Repulsor thinks that he'll share his goals.
But Superpro has to disabuse him of that.
Superpro punches Repulsor in the face a lot, and then gives some more lipservice about the environment. Maybe he goes home and recycles some cans and bottles after this, i don't know.
But maybe he should save those cans and bottles to sell at the salvage yard, because he's unemployed after this.

Jeez, even in his final panel, he's being laughed at. That's low. But I guess he had it coming with that ridiculous pose of his.

About that pose : So many artists suffer from invisible high heels syndrome. Is it not a requirement to be able to draw feet from all angles before you are hired to draw in comics?

They really should have killed him off...he's licensed and terrible, obviously he'll never appear again. But now we have to assume that he's having politically-correct side adventures, possibly participating off-panel in major events...

There is a reference to him in Robert Kirkman's Marvel Team-Up.

Naw, Andrew. He just went on to co-star in The King of Fighters '94
Still I seriously can't believe that this books actually lasted 12 issues. I mean we live in a time when "A-list" characters can barely make it to 12 issues, and this somehow survive to a full-year run.
So by this time next year, Superpro will have been brought back in an attempt at "post-ironic nostalgia" right?

Regarding the last panel: That is hands down the worst Heisman pose I've ever seen! However, if the artist made some adjustments and drew Superpro playing a flute, it could be a decent nod to the classic Ian Anderson/Jethro Tull pose. That stands to reason because I'd imagine if we ever see the character in the present time, he'd likely be "Sitting on a park bench!"
