The internet, as it is wont to do, got into a bit of a hissy fit recently with the announcement of ThunderCats Roar, a comedy-tinged, heavily stylized re-imagining of Lion-O and his friends that had some fans wishing the franchise could’ve gotten a more serious reboot instead. But Thundercats already did, seven years…

If there’s one thing that Marvel could learn from some of DC’s more recent comics, it’s that weird crossover series uniting characters from entirely different companies can make for some incredibly fun stories.

I can barely stand how awesome this series of pictures by Andy McDonald is. Honestly, Note: I want an actual cartoon special devoted to an all-supervillain '80s b-ball team asap. Note 2: I may never stop staring at the picture of Cobra Commander. Honestly, I may need to get a tattoo.
Although we can look back now and see how terrible most '80s cartoons used to be, most of them still have their charms. ThunderCats… not so much.
