No seriously, what's going on?
No, seriously. What's going on?!
I'm honestly just lost.
Quality Rating: D+
Chronological Placement Considerations: This is apparently what Puma has been doing with himself since giving up the Daily Bugle.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Clearly this is the "Ultimate Universe" version of Puma. Because. that is not "our" Puma.

Dan Mishkin was the original writer of Amethyst in DC Comics back in 1983.
It was a story very much at odds with itself when it came to tone - saccharine, oversimplistic yet gory plot centered on a protagonist that was at one time oversexualized while also rather naive, even by the standards of the thirteen years old girl that she was in truth, and gloriously unashamed of being pure Mary Sue.
If the scans above are any indication, his writing is not any more convincing nor deeper seven years later.

Puma seems to be one of those characters that Marvel can't decide if he should be a villain or a hero.

If I got to write for Marvel, my secret plan would be to bring back Puma and make this story so incredibly important to the current continuity that there's a run on this otherwise utterly obscure issue of MCP. But only after I bought every copy I could find on the internet.

Mishkin was also the co-creator and initial writer of Blue Devil, a light comedy adventure comic where random weird mystical stuff showed up to prompt adventures.

If nothing else, 'Blue Devil' had a great premise: an actor magically becoming the character he was playing for real.
