Heads Up Metal Men by HeadsUpStudios Heads Up Metal Men by HeadsUpStudios
I've been working on these guys for a long time. When I saw them pop up on an episode of Batman Brave and the Bold a couple of weeks ago, I was "re-inspired" by how cool these guys are, and finished them up. I was going to put them up one at a time, but it's quicker to do them as a team. :)

No. No it didn't. You need to quit going to those Turkish bath houses.

They're DC Comics characters...Gold, Iron, Tin, Mercury, Lead and Platinum, with their creator, Dr. Magnus. Look up info on them at www.comicvine.com, if you like! :)

Pretty nicely done! Say, what do you think of the portrayal of Doc Magnus in the episode where they were introduced? I found him dissatisfactory, myself.

I didn't think they did a bad job, necessarily. I'm not sure how he's characterized in the comics, as I haven't read any of their books. There is a bit of a cheese factor in Batman Brave and the Bold, so it was probably in-keeping with the tone of the show...

Why didn't you care for his portrayal?

Well, his name's supposed to be Will Magnus, and in every Metal Men comic I've read, he was this slender and kind of nervous insecure fellow. And Platinum is supposed to be in love with him, which makes him uncomfortable. So, I'm hoping there's another episode that introduced Milton's brother Will, who Platinum likes WAY BETTER than she likes Batman. All in all, not a bad episode, but I don't understand why they would change Doc like that.

I see your point. It's difficult when animated shows and movies mess with what "how things are in the comic world"...sometimes with crappy results. It's probably a some clown in a suit who thinks his/her idea is better, or sometimes your at the mercy of just how much exposition you can cram into a half hour cartoon.

They've messed with a lot of things, usually with amazing results. Their Aquaman is the best Aquaman in all history. But this is one of two cases where I truly disapprove of the changes.

Thanks, George! Not familiar with the Metal Men? There's Gold, Iron, Tin Lead, Mercury, Platinum and their creator, Dr. Magnus. DC Comics characters. Google them if you'd like...I think they're kinda fun-looking characters! :)

Yeah they're fun looking characters but couldn't they come up with any better names for them?!? Seems a bit o' a cop out but at least it's straight to the point and you know what they're made of.

Nice to see a "big grouping" of your Heads Up's Jay! Always a highlight of my day when something new pops up from you in my "watch."
