As a big Metal Men fan, it's gratifying to note that they're not portrayed as jerks here. There's none of the 'go home, you wheezing old fart!' attitude that was found in the Blackhawk story - instead, they're genuinely regretful that they're replacing a comrade in arms, wish him well, and Tina gives him a hug on the way out. They're happy to have the job, but sorry that it involves booting out an old friend. It's a nice bit of characterization - they're his replacements, but not his antagonists.
