Deathlok Vs. The Terminator



The Terminator is set to have one more theatrical go-round.  Installments in the franchise after T2: Judgment Day have been less and less successful in my eyes, so I'm wondering if the magic can be captured once again.  Still, this latest outing has the involvement of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and James Cameron, which could finally signal a return to form.  I'll be very interested to see a trailer to get an idea of what the film has in store.

I don't know that The Terminator ever needed a sequel. Kinda like The Matrix.

Hey, Ross have you ever done a cover where Deathstroke meets Deathlok???
i couldn't find one but could not believe that it could have been missed... ...however if indeed it has not happened let me be the first to suggest this to you....

Oh, gods! This seems so obvious a meeting that it's a shame there's never actually been a story published.

Somewhere online, by the way, there's a Terminator/Jane Austen crossover fanfic story. I read it, or part of it, a few years ago. Entertaining...

Mike Shirley said...

Oh wow, I remember making this suggestion forever ago! :D
I agree that the sequels really dropped in quality after T2
We need to see a Conan vs Terminator throwdown some day

Great cover, Ross! I can just hear Arnie's voice as "Luther" listens to that pronouncement. :-)

It occurs to me that the Terminator should be a foe for Robo-Force. I also wonder that he's never faced his DC Comics semi-namesake, Deathstroke the Terminator.

I mostly agree with you about the Terminator films, Ross. Genisys was interesting enough (up until Matt Smith's overhyped and disappointing cameo), but the rest kind of fell flat for me -- not enough to be a waste of time and money, but not really exciting either.

PS: Four words: Inferior Five Versus Cthulhu.

Or, even better; "I-5 v. Marvel Zombies!"

@Anonymous: I'd prefer INFERIOR 5 v. THE INHERITORS.

With the titular antagonists out to get the Cobweb Kid!*

Yesterday Deathstroke, today Deathlok- tomorrow Deatgh's Head? Or Death? Or Deadman, or Deadpool, or Deadshot, or Dead Girl?

Cary Comic said...

How about "Deadly Harry" (a Dirty Harry/RIPD crossover)?

ELS said...

DC took a turn playing in the Terminator sandbox. I think Marvel might want to consider it... I mean, who doesn't love a GOOD crossover? And now that the Fantastic Four is back, I think it would make a great showcase crossover.

Of course, seeing it HERE would also be a delightful treat! But 'most anything on STF is a delightful treat...

Such a great suggestion that Ross did it years ago ;)

Dethlok VS The Impossibles. Dethlok VS The Archies. Dethlok Mugs The Monkees.

Cary Comic said...

@Brother Barnes: Or Catwoman steals the voices of the Monkees! Compelling the Gibbon to swing to the rescue!!

Brother Kellymatthew Barnes said...

Cary Comic Who is the Gibbon?

Cary Comic said...

He was a one-time foe of Spidey during the Seventies. But, after a short stint in the self-styled "Legion of Losers" (imagine the Sinister Six made up of Spidey's weakest foes), he became a minor-league crime fighter alongside...The Grizzly!*

It was later revealed (in the mini-series "Marvel Zombies vs. Marvel Apes) that he might be from the same parallel-Earth as those simian superheroes Iron Mandrill and the Amazing Spider Monkey.

Brother Kellymatthew Barnes said...

Cary Comic is The Gibbon related to Henry Gibson (As in "A Poem by Henry Gibson" - Henry Gibson(You bet your sweet bippy)) or Yule Gibbons ("Did you know certain parts of a pine tree are edible ?" - Yule Gibbons (Grapenuts Commercial)?

Cary Comic said...

@Brother Barnes: Nope, nope, and nah-uh! :-)
