Jocasta and Magnus: Robot Fighter



I'm not sure why I have always liked Jocasta.  Maybe it is because she is from my favorite era of the Avengers, or that she has ties to Ultron (my favorite villain of theirs), or maybe just because she has a really cool design.  At any rate, I always enjoy when she makes an appearance in a story.

These two shared an adventure once before, with Machine Man along for the ride...

Hi Ross, I can't seem to find the "view mobile version" to click onto on my phone and it's stuck in desktop version. Whereabouts on the page is it?
Cheers, John.

The Mobile version was buggy (not allowing zoom) so I switched to desktop.

I know why I like Jocasta so much- it's because of the way David Michelinie wrote her. He gave her a very interesting personality. He wrote her as if she thought of her entire existence as some sort of tragic joke, and she was simultaneously amused by it and had extreme low self esteem issues because of it. most other writers at the time (including her creator, Jim Shooter) didn't give her much personality at all.

I love it! Sort of a cross between Rog-3000 and the look Robotman of the Doom Patrol sported all through the Eighties.

Hi Ross, another great cover!!!

As far as the mobile version, it's been non-zoomable for awhile. If I want to zoom I just open the pic on a different window. I still prefer that mobile version IMMENSELY more than the current desktop version. My two cents!

OK, I switched it back, let me know if there are any issues - some have said when they try to zoom it clicks to the next cover. Why are folks looking at this page on a tiny phone screen though? an Ipad or Computer Screen is the way to go!

Ross, how about teaming up Jocasta and Platinum from Metal Men?

Ross said...

They met when Machine Man and Jocasta teamed with the Metal Men....

I was just going to add that she always reminded me of Platinum & maybe her creator/s took some inspiration from her being one of the more popular Metal Men characters.
She's always been one of my top 10 super-heroines from the Marvel universe.
I even remember buying that cover appearance of hers way back when.
