I read that a long while back. I hope so, DC has so many properties whose potential go untapped.

I'd like to add this to my group dedicated to fan-casting. If you'd like me to send you an invitation to become one of the members of my group (because you've got a good eye for casting) then respond to this message.

Plus that comic definitely answers the burning question: Which is worse, ten 3 foot high Chemos or one 30 ft high Chemo? Not that IQ was left standing to get the answer...

I also recall that. I also recall Chemo listening as IQ explained to him how he was needed to neutralize a solar imbalance affecting earth. Still, he bided his time to strike at his supposed ally at the right moment. Chemo doesn't speak, so one can't tell what he's thinking.

IQ WAs turned to stone, but somehow recovered off-stage later.

Absolutely incroyable. On the nose. Sure wish they'd actually make this thing. And I'm pullin' for CHEMO as the McGuffin -- it couldn't carry the whole movie by itself, but it could sure make the StayPuft Marshmallow Man pale in comparison when turned loose in the climax. SSSSSS!!! SSSSSSSS!!!!

We oughta see B.O.L.T.S. and Z-1's Missile Men at some point, too.

Thank you for the comment! :) I am always glad to hear from someone who knows their Metal Men lore and you certainly fit that bill! :)

I guess they'd have to set up Chemo's maker as an enemy to Doc Magnus, that could stretch the movie out a ways.

THere was a Superman/MM team-up some years ago in which the evil genius Ira Quimby came up with a diabolical plan involving Chemo -- rewrite it without Supes and it would be a great film. Chemo was right where he should be in that story, which hasn't always been the case for the big guy. He's a monster, and a particularly dangerous/mindless one -- anything more than that doesn't work. And he was WAY dangerous in that comic. Wanna see the cover? Check out my blog:

I recall he was needed to correct some solar imbalance affecting earth. When the Metal Men all failed to stop him -and were destroyed- it was up to Superman to stop Chemo. He did -but failed to destroy the last few drops of Chemo's mass -and Chemo lived to fight for the bad guys in CRISIS.

Very cool, thanks for the link too. I totally have that issue somewhere in a box! :)That movie would rule. Interesting, IQ is a Hawkman villain if I remember correctly, maybe they could spin off! :)

I think I read in an Amazing Heroes Preview Special that Robert Kanigher and Irv Novick were supposed to do a Metal Men mini-series in the 1980s that would have centered on a Metal Men movie. It is some sort of crime that we were denied that and instead got that horrible Dan Jurgens mini-series which I will once again refuse to acknowledge exists after this comment thread.

Oh wow, I had never heard that. Interesting. I do remember the Jurgens series, that's the one where Magnus eventually went Metal? I did read the most recent series collected in the back of Doom Patrol, found scans online.

I hadn't either until comparatively recently. You can read about it and a ton of other stuff on this page archived from the old DC Message Boards.

Yep, the one where Doc became a Metal Man. Looked nice, but such a bad idea.

That whole series was retconned as a delusion -Byrne should NOT be allowed to do any scripting as he can not write or pace, tho he is an excellent artist.

Yeah, I was always too big a fan of the Metals to be happy seeing Magnus galvanized, but used to seeing my faves get the shaft. :(

I flipped when I found out they were going to guest star! It was great!

The old Brave & Bold comic had them guest star at least 5 times with Bats.

The only robot part is the "responsiometer" which is inconsistently described, just as their nature and essense is not consistently described. Since their very first mission -to destroy the flying atomic mantra ray- their responsiometers have been replaced a few times, and DC never explained why they were dismantled and scrapped and after some time, rebuilt from scratch (and a new member,Copper, added).
I got the impression that you take a responsiometer from any of these robots and stick it in a mass of whatever element they are set to, and that mass becomes -the Metal Man.

They are, tho DC very loosely held to consistency and logic in these stories. I recall in THE BRAVE & THE BOLD where they teamed up with the Atom to fight a metal man that predated even Platinum -Uranium ! Apparently his responsiometer wasn't perfected ,so he proved a reckless irresponsible and criminal menace. Uranium could release his radioactive energy in the form of 3 dwarf minions; once they wore themselves out in fighting the Metal Men, Uranium melted down into a pool of radium ! Brave & the Bold, after it switched from SHOWCASE-like trial series like JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA followed by CAVE CARSON, had very little consistency with the team-ups, but whether this improved after it became a BATMAN team up series, and finally OUTSIDERS I don't know.

Byrne, ever the heretic, had the idea that they WERE originally human, but their consciousnesses were transferred to the responsiometers -app. leaving a lot of dead bodies for Dr. Magnus to deal with. Tin was originally a pizza delivery man and Gold was Dr. Magnus' brother (the resemblance ?) and so on. The next writer, understandably, disowned that nonsense.

It was undecided whether they were made of the actual metals they had the powers of, or a plastic polymer that could be programmed to copy the properties of any metal element - even KRYPTONITE as Lex Luthor managed to turn Tin into by monkeying with his responsiometer in one noncanon story !

Say- did you know that Mercury is the only metal that is liquid at room temperature? XD

Good choices. I'd go see it!

I'd go see the movie - IF it was made. I'm not holding my breathe,tho.

Mercury uses that expression about being the only metal that is ... as a catchphrase, but gallium comes a near second. It's liquid on very hot days. It, like Mercury, also has amalgamating tendencies, infiltrating and breaking up many element metals when pressed against them.
