First up, a little bit of sideways self-promotion. The reason I'm posting a few hours late today is because I spent most of the morning and afternoon promoting the latest music release from my rap group, the Unlicensed Attorneys at Law. It's called The Bacon and Eggs EP -- three all-original hip hop tracks stuffed with NSFW rhymes and offensive jokes, just in time for XXXmas.

Now be forewarned -- it's not for everybody. The humor is raunchy and risque, and the satire is extreme. But if you dig the in-your-face side of the Super Haters, then you'll probably get a kick out of the Attorneys. Here are the songs in SoundCloud's Flash player:



And now... back to our regularly scheduled blog post!

As I announced yesterday, I'll be spending the rest of this week spotlighting The Many Armors of Destruct-O-Tron. First up, let's take a look at Destruct-O-Tron throughout the years:



Little Todd Purvee first appeared in Super Haters #63, alongside kiddie versions of his sister and Mind's Eye. We know that he had his orange armor before he had his codename -- in Super Haters #66, we learned that he stole the theme of his superhero moniker from his sister, Destruct-O-Bot. It's not exactly clear who raised Destruct-O-Tron, especially since Super Haters #232 revealed that his father wasn't around while he was growing up (and who knows if that red armored stranger is even his father to begin with!). What we do know for sure is that little Destruct-O-Tron was just as stupid as adult Destruct-O-Tron.

And what about adult Destruct-O-Tron? Well, according to Super Haters #1, he's currently piloting the Destruct-O-Gear 5000... which, as far as anyone knows, is the only Destruct-O-Gear he's ever made. He's obviously not very good at taking care of his armor, especially if he's able to mix up his self-destruct mechanism with a self-cleaning oven. We also know from Super Haters #17 that he uses Destruct-O-Lube to stay "greased up" inside the suit. But other than that, the qualities of the Destruct-O-Gear 5000 largely remain a mystery. Supposedly he had (or has) a laser cannon... but even that's unclear. Will the secrets of Destruct-O-Tron's armor ever be unlocked? Only time will tell!

Speaking of time, the last armor we're looking at today is the tentacled shell of Future Destruct-O-Tron a.k.a. Disgust-O-Tron. Exactly how far he comes from in the future is unclear. But according to Super Haters #25, Todd Purvee is going to end up a nasty blob no matter what. From the looks of Disgust-O-Tron, his armor is basically a casing for his massively deformed head and the whole thing is overflowing with Destruct-O-Lube. He has three visible tentacles, two in the place of arms and one on his head. Whether it was a battle with a supervillain or self-experimentation that landed Todd in this future predicament, one thing's for sure -- he's really fucking gross.

Anyway, thx for being patient and waiting for today's update. I'll be back (much earlier) tomorrow with The Many Armors of Destruct-O-Tron pt 2: Accessories and Disguises! Plus, fun linkage to some extracurricular material :)
