I know "our" Mixie's name was on the cover, but did anyone notice how PrimeSlime said the name? "Mix-ill-plik"?

Was that how the pre-Crisis Earth-2 version's name was said?

Either way, I don't understand how he could kidnap (let alone hold captive) a being like Mixie.

I mean, he could turn Superman's hands into bouquets of flowers if he wanted to, or turn him into a giant teddy bear or even an immobile paperweight...

HOW do you capture a being like that, or hold him? And despite his power level being high and his being immune to mainstream Kryptonite, shouldn't Mixie's powers have some kind of effect on PrimeSlime? I don't get any of this.

I do like his costume tho'.

Make the S and the armbands red, and it might have been an interesting costume for Kon-El. (Maybe make the cape red too, but the dark blue cape is a nice difference.)

No, it was different. I think he's doing what we'd do. Mispronounce it.

It's possible that the Anti-Monitor infused him with some Anti-Matter which can protect him from magic. And he's figured out how to nuteralize his powers. Assuming he still has his powers. Things changed after "Infinite Crisis" regarding magic. It might be this way for Mxy as well.
