Characters Appearing: Byron Benjamin, Eddie Harris, Kublai Khan, Machine Man, Maggie Jones, Peter Spaulding
Machine Man #13
Issue(s): Machine Man #13
So Khan captures Machine Man...
...and attempts the mind transfer.
But it doesn't work, and both Khan and his henchman Tong are seemingly killed when the blimp explodes.
Also in this issue we get to see more of Aaron Stack's awful co-workers.
His boss, Byron Benjamin, who knows he's Machine Man, tells him that he needs to try to seem more human, so he agrees to go to a party. His awful co-workers conspire to get him drunk.
Very little going on here in terms of characterization or interesting plots or villains or anything.
Quality Rating: D+
Chronological Placement Considerations: N/A
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Weird: the debut of Dazzler (the disco, roller-skating mutant) and Shulkie (a heroine created to stop Universal Studios from making their own female Hulk) in the same month that Machine Man goes to Xanadu...didn't Marvel realize that crazy movie wouldn't be out for six more months? (but then again I like that movie)

This is actually a reference to the Coleridge poem, not the movie.

Yeah I know of the poem; I just found it interesting how things seemed to align in February 1980 towards the movie.
