Deathlok Joins Star Wars

 

This was a team up that I hadn't considered before but once I started to put together, began to really to make sense.  Luther Manning fits right in with the world of Star Wars.

I am always happy to use an image by the amazing Dave Cockrum.  I was lucky enough to pick up a couple of pieces by him several years ago:

Too bad you couldn't have included a certain other cyborg from Marvel's original STAR WARS period. You could've entitled it...

"The Men Who Shot Beilert Valance!"

What you and Deathlok himself say is quite true: aside from his visual appearance, he fits right in with Star Wars, most of all in the Rebellion period. (As would, I think, the Guardians of the Galaxy; has that been done yet?)

Ah, yes, the non-conflicted uncomplicated best-there-is Wolverine. That's a sweet pinup, Ross.

This one is quite fitting, as the first time I encountered Deathlok was as a backup strip in Marvel UK's Star Wars Weekly!

Good old Dave Cockrum! As Bob McLeod (of the Clan McLeod) might say:

"There can be only one."


"HERE WE ARE! BORN 2-B KINGS..."

It could be Deathlock vs Dark Vader - cyborg vs cyborg.

Or Deathlok (mind-controlled by Megavolt) vs. Roboduck?
