both great accounts. I do like the story atphantom came up with, but I would agree that he should have an emotional feel towards it.
I liked atphantom's story too. I just think the lack of the good half of the emotional spectrum is a plot hole. Like I said, insanity can hold that at bay well enough.
My biggest pet peeve with Metallo is the Cyborg Superman. He's looking for ways to discredit or defeat Supes, and can inhabit any material he wants. Why wouldn't he take over Metallo's body for the cybernetics and the kryptonite? It would delete the character of Metallo, but would be in line with Henshaw's vendetta against Superman. Although there's a comic book plausibility that Metallo's mind could fight back to reassert control, the cybernetic auto-protect function finding a way to oust Henshaw, but that doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Pretty much, I see Henshaw "stepping in" and squishing Metallo's organic brain, to splice and multiply genetic material to make the organic parts he's so fond of for his appearance - something that makes no sense about Henshaw's character. He can configure himself however he wants, but chooses a half man, half machine appearance? Blah. I still want pre-Crisis Brainiac back over Henshaw.
