Marvel Minimates Continue With Nimrod, Fantomex, Betsy Braddock and Mr. Negative!
Jay Cochran - June 15, 2011
Another wave of Marvel Minimates, another array of classic characters, perennial favorites and ultra-modern noobs! Wave 41 will be anchored by First Appearance Iron Man and Mega-Rage Hulk, one of the beefiest Hulks we’ve ever made, as well as Unmasked Spider-Man and Green Goblin with his glider — re-create the classic cover to Amazing Spider-Man #39! Plus, comic and specialty stores will receive an exclusive set of Mr. Sinister with Nimrod, as well as a variant pack that has Age of Apocalypse Sinister instead. For their 11th wave, Toys “R” Us stores will get Hulk/Iron Man and Spidey/Goblin, but also exclusive sets of Nightcrawler (with bamfing base) with Betsy Braddock (in her classic costume), and X-Force’s Fantomex with Spidey villain Mr. Negative! The toys will hit stores in August, but in the meantime, read up on the characters below!
FIRST APPEARANCE IRON MAN & MEGA-RAGE HULK
FIRST APPEARANCE IRON MAN
Captured by a warlord and forced to build weapons for him, brilliant industrialist Tony Stark instead builds a magnetic chest plate to keep lethal shrapnel away from his heart. Then he builds a powerful suit of armor to help in his escape!
Caught in a gamma bomb test, Dr. Bruce Banner found that the radiation had affected him on a genetic level, and that moments of stress or anger transformed him into the monstrous Hulk. The madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets, and the Hulk never met anything he couldn’t smash.
GREEN GOBLIN w/GLIDER AND SPIDEY UNMASKED
GREEN GOBLIN W/GLIDER
Scientist Norman Osborne was developing a formula that would enhance strength and intelligence, but when he exposed himself to the untested serum, he discovered its terrible side effect: madness! Super-strong and super-smart, the criminal mastermind called the Green Goblin is also super-dangerous.
Crimefighter Spider-Man had already earned the wrath of would-be crime lord Green Goblin, but once the Goblin deduced Spidey’s secret identity, all bets were off! Peter Parker found himself caught in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with the father of his best friend, one who has no qualms about revealing Spider-Man’s face to the world.
BETSY BRADDOCK & BAMFING NIGHTCRAWLER
The sister of superhero Captain Britain, Braddock was recruited by the government for her precognitive powers, which later bloomed into full telepathy. Crossing paths with the X-Men, she was recruited onto the team after surviving an encounter with Sabretooth and assisting them during the Mutant Massacre.
BAMF! With that distinctive sound, a purple cloud of smoke and the smell of brimstone, Nightcrawler makes his appearance on the scene, and is just as quick to leave it. A mutant teleporter, Kurt Wagner is feared by humans due to his blue fur and demonic appearance, and a longtime member of the X-Men.
FANTOMEX & MR. NEGATIVE
The mutant Fantomex is a hybrid of man and machine, a technorganic sentinel with an external nervous system and multiple brains designed to police the world’s mutant population. Striking out on his own, he became a self-styled thief and solo operator before reluctantly joining up with the mutant black ops team known as X-Force.
The man who bears the name Martin Li lives two lives: one as the kind-hearted operator of a soup kitchen, the other as a ruthless crimelord in New York’s Chinatown. And where Li has the ability to heal, Mr. Negative has the ability to corrupt people, including Spider-Man, as well as charge his weapons with dark energy.
MR. SINISTER & NIMROD
Mr. Sinister is that potentially lethal combination: a brilliant scientist with near-unlimited powers. The shape-shifting, energy-projecting telepath has been following the life of the X-Man Cyclops since he was a boy, and manipulating it in ways that no one could have expected.
A deadly, mutant-hunting Sentinel from an alternate future where Sentinels rule, Nimrod first came back to the present in pursuit of a time-travelling mutant, and has been destroyed and reincarnated more times than the X-Men can count.
