What do you want to bet he's walking away from that in slow motion?
What do you want to bet he’s walking away from that in slow motion?

This column has always been there for lesser known, forgotten, or frequently recharacterized superheroes from various ages.  Today, though, I’ll be discussing Amadeus Cho, former Mastermind Excello and future Hulk.

Now I’m going to agree with one of his other points.
