Born with the extraordinary ability to transform his body into raw iron, Ferro Lad is not afraid to leap into dangerous situations. Often driven to take chances to save his teammates, this well-liked and courageous hero remains insecure about revealing the face behind the mask. The FERRO LAD ACTION FIGURE measures approximately 6" tall, features multiple points of articulation and is packaged in a 4-color blister pack.
Item is in stock and ready to ship.
Ferro - Zorro - makes no difference to me! The former is, in fact, a greater hero in my eyes than the latter! Ever since I read that LSH tale in which the original Ferro Lad made the ultimate sacrifice in order to save his friends, teammates and even denigrators from a near-invincible adversary, an entity called the "sun-eater"... Oh yeah, I tell ya, folks... FERRO is DA BOMB! *lol* DC has since dissolved and diminished the impact of that tale, having Ferro return in the form of a clone (at least it wasn't the original one brought back to life, as it usually happens in those comic-bookies...) STILL - Ferro remains the quintessential hero to me. And a great lesson in altruism (as well as self-denial if not outright self-sacrifice) for all readers, ages 7 to 77, inclusively...!
The Big One... they called him!
Bobby Heenan called him that - ALL the Pay-Per-View promos had that weasel say "We're waiting for the big one"! A huge tidal wave? Nooooo... More like a large tugboat (oops - that's the other guy - you know, the OTHER big goof they called "Shockmaster"...!) so let's call this one the big freighter... For he sure did carry with him a large supply of spares such as the 'Honky Tonk Man', Jimmy Hart and that insufferable "brother Bruti" aka Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake aka Zodiac aka The Butcher aka The Man With No Name... and no charisma either, but I digress...
They bring in Hogan - and make him the world champion right away?!?
The big bird clod had to pay his dues! But noooooooooo...
Let's skip all the good matches he could have had, as warm-ups AND build-up, both...
Let's have him wrestle ONLY Flair...
No other interaction with anybody else in the WCW...
And let's have him WIN the belt on the very first try!
And then, he'll be the LOUSIEST CHAMPION OF ALL - never present, only defending against Flair... GREAT PLAN, WCW!
Hindsight being 20/20,
I'm surprised it didn't backfire SOONER than it did...
