What I’ve seen of the cel-animated Action Man cartoon of the mid-90s has been tedious and boring. However, the lead villain - Doctor X - sports an incredible fashion combination, including an eyepatch, a big droopy mustache, a ponytail on an otherwise bald head, a robot hand, and a plateglass stomach that reveals his glowing green intestines. Stylin’.

Doctor X’s henchgoons are nothing to sneeze at, either, featuring as they do  purple jumpsuits with rebreathers and crossed bandoliers which sport only three bullets and a tiny pouch. Plus their masks are skull-themed, despite Doctor X himself not seeming to have a skull motif.

Still, if the G.I. Joe Club were to ever make these goobers - not out of the realm of possibility, given Action Man’s ties to Joe - I would probably be interested.
