Reintroducing the 'Introducing!' format, in which we shine the CGS spotlight on the first appearances of three characters, all sharing some common trait or feature, from three different publishers and decades. Taking 'Androids' as our theme, we investigate the inorganic origins of three synthetic superstars: the Silver Age Red Tornado; Jack Kirby's X-51, the Machine Man; and that small-press sensation of the '90s, Scud the Disposable Assassin! If you're in the mood for all-out android action (and origin analysis), these are the droids you're looking for! (1:38:17)
