Didn't know turning Caucasian was one of Spot's powers before this comic. The fact that he didn't use to wear a costume, he got turned to how he looked by the experiment that gave him his powers, is kinda a minor detail compared to that.

In his original appearances, he was just that: a white guy who became pasty-white with black spots all over... but he could consolidate the spots into one big one and look normal as long as he was wearing clothes to hide it. I'm not sure why he'd wear a costume, though, unless either his powers changed or he wanted something where he didn't feel naked all the time... or of course writer error because obscure villains don't deserve continuity. :)

Hm. I was sure he started as asian. Guess I should get that memory upgrade done earlier rather than later.

Believe it or not, someone did some posts about the Spot on S_D!

Yup. I stumbled on that too when I went to check. I was actually reading comics when the issue came out here in Finland. Memory's just playing tricks on me.

Gotta admit, that last bit is a heck of an image. JRjr has always been great at designing random-ass superhumans who look somewhere between Kirby and silly and not -quite- generic.

Truly, when you want to strike fear into the hearts of men, you use...The Spot and Slyde!

Honestly, they're both on the list of characters whose powers and abilities would be pretty scary if they weren't in the hands of unimaginative dorks.

The Spot's covered in a few hundred short-range interdimensional teleport gates and Slyde invented a virtually frictionless, reactionless material. Either of them could be made into killing machines with a little work.

Now that I think about it, the Hand's resurrection trick is basically an in-universe gritty reboot.

Spot got reimagined fairly recently as an unrepentant killer, if I recall.

I always have a hard time taking these "Bad Guy Team Goes On A Rampage" stories seriously, when they always either dodge or nerf any heavy-hitter who could stop them cold or seriously slow them down (Northstar can't dodge Wolverine, Iceman suddenly can't throw a wide enough ice beam to nail all the borders, Lorna's reflexes are suddenly gone, etc.)

I forgot this was during the Chuck Austen era of X-Men. What the everloving fuck is Polaris' costume about?
