I automatially love anyone who recognizes this guy.
And for those of you who don't recognize him this is Pretorius, the mad scientist (or "chaos theorist" as he refers to himself) in Edge City from the cartoon The Mask the Animated Series.
Quite possibly my most favorite fictional character ever. There's just something about an evil villian who made it so his head is detachable and can walk around seperatly from his body on little metal spider legs that's so irrisistable. (that or I just have weird taste in men) Either way this guy just screams "awesome".
A common misconception about Pretorius is that his body is fully robotic. It's not. He's just a cyborg. You can tell his body is still real flesh and blood because he still feels pain. (as seen in the episode "Mutany of the Bounty Hunters") And then there was that one time (in "Bride of Pretorius") when he wanted to find a wife so he could wipe out the rest of humanity and restart the human race himself. Can't do THAT without a "real" body now, could he?
But anyways, favorite character from my favorite cartoon Mask the Animated Series. I figured it was about time I posted something for it.
Pretorius (c) Film Roman? New Line Cinema? Or maybe Dark Horse comics. Not sure exactly who owns this guy.
