Hercules and The Herculoids


This was another no-brainer team-up that I somehow didn't think of, so I am thankful to Blog Patron Tim Stellmach for suggesting it to me. It's very cool to see The Herculoids back in comics again.  DC has been having fun with the Hanna-Barbera properties lately.  Seeing artists like Aaron Lopresti interpreting Alex Toth's designs is a real treat.

Still waiting to see that Travis Morgan/John Carter team-up!

Wait- where’s Tundro?

What about Tennessee Tuxedo/Tuxedo Mask?

Paul Schilling said...

"... Where's Tundro" If you look at one of the alternate covers for DC's Future Quest #1 Tundro is standing where Hercules is on Ross's cover.

It's occurred to me that the Herculoids would make perfect (if not, perfectly logical) additions to the STAR WARS LEGENDS universe. Specifically, a family of Zeison Sha Force-users! Tundro, alone, could be one of those sentient quadrupeds called the T'chuukthai (like Master Thon from the first SW: KOTOR limited series from Dark Horse).

Ross,this is a great cover...
...however i think that i would have gone with Disney's cartoon Hercules instead...
i am a HUGH fan of the Herculoids...
...say how about Gloop and Gleep team up with Odo from Star Trek:Deep Space 9 and Al Capp's
Shmoo...
...as a team of gelatinous shapeshifters...
...they could even get Gumpy and Pokey to join them...
They would truely be a team that could be all that they can be....

...not HUGH but rather HUGE...
i hate autocorrect...

@jackel: and lets not forget the Legion's gelatinous blobs, Proty / Proty II.

From the way Hercules is smirking, I think the secret involves Tara being one of his many love-children. Perhaps through a one-night stand with one of the Danvers' twins?

Ross said...

In his dreams.

Glenn Host said...

Actually I think SHE was the love interest - the boy looks a lot more like Hercules than his father.

Bradley Walker said...

How about Hercules and Hercule Poirot? (From those recent graphic novels)

For that matter, how about Hercule Poirot and Tintin?

Cary Comic said...

@BW: How about Tintin and Tin of the Metal Men?

@Carycomic: I second that emotion.

Cary, I'm sure you will remember this has benn suggested before, along with Tin Tin from the Thunderbirds, Rin Tin Tin and others. A title may even have been suggested but I can't recall it.
