I never even bothered with the Metaphysician when I was writing X-Force. I figured that my legions of fans would be disappointed by a villain who's defeated in less than three panels. They like BAM! BOOM! WHAP!! BIDDY-BIDDY-BAM!! and all that. I did create a totally unrelated character called the Megaphysician, though, on my award-winning* run on Bloodwulf. No relation at all. See, he beat up all the Image heroes in an annual I did, until he was fighting Badrock, but instead of him respecting Badrock's tenacity, they decided to go snowboarding! EXTREME sports, yo!!!!

Should I look down and say it?
