At first I was somewhat offended, thinking that this was just another in the long line of "humorous" insults directed at Sleepy over the years, but upon seeing the comments of yourself and others, I've begun to get the humor behind it. I'm just not the kind of person who'd be inclined to satirize the things I myself love.

It's funny how more and more people seem to be clamoring for a new Sleepwalker series, whether it be in the MAX or Ultimate lines, as I've seen on a number of forums-that's exactly what I'm doing in my own fanfiction series-writing an Ultimate-style re-imagining of the Sleepwalker mythos, set it its own distinct version of the Marvel Universe.

I've incorporated, or am about to incorporate, all of Bob Budiansky's old villains, some of them in very different forms from their original versions, and I've even revived some of the really obscure Scourge victims for good measure.

Anyone ever heard of Hellrazor?

How about Megatak?

How many people heard of the Ringer before I mentioned him on this forum?

They're all here, and they've all been re-imagined.

Omar Karindu, if you're reading this, I have you to thank for this idea. Your criticisms of Hellrazor and Megatak on the Appendix to the Handbook of the Marvel Universe provided a challenge I couldn't resist-take these lameasses and make them into badasses.

Heh -- yeah, I'll admit the video can be seen as offensive, but the satire aside, I have to admit I was impressed by the amount of time these guys put into creating a video about an obscure Marvel character (and I did think the animation at the end was actually pretty cool)

Personally I don't have a problem when people lampoon my favorite characters (although there are a few instances when I think they go a bit too far).

Speaking of which, did you know that there's a Marvel Comics "What The --?!"issue (I can't remember the number) that includes a parody of Sleepwalker? I don't know if it was written by Budiansky, but it was about Sleepwalker moving permanently out of Rick's mind (yeah I know that's technically impossible) and moving into the minds of various other Marvel characters in hopes of finding a better place to live.
