Today, we're going to take a look at Destruct-O-Tron's unique and varied accessories. As you can see in the image above, he's a man of many looks -- from lo-fi to glamorous to party chic.
First up is Destruct-O-Tron's Hawaiian shirt. I mean, there's not too much to say about it. He wore it when he was on vacation from Super Haters #167-187. And it's a shirt. Soooooooooo... yeah.
Next up is Destruct-O-Tron's most enduring accessory -- his wireless headset, which first appeared in Super Haters #59. Due to the fact that his armor is made of slick metal, he has to use tape to keep it stuck on his helmet. Frankly, how the headset works is a pretty big mystery considering that his cellphone is a holdover from the Paleolithic Era.
In the middle we have the very non-PC Destruct-O-Tranny, defender of cross-gender robot rights. This was an identity Todd briefly assumed in Super Haters #16 in an attempt to trick Mind's Eye into working with him again. While Destruct-O-Tron's drag persona didn't stick around for long, it did reappear in Super Haters #19 during his first encounter with King Steve.
Moving to the right, we see Destruct-O-Tron garbed in his frat boy finest -- a beer hat. He donned this cap in Super Haters #291, hoping to convince Mind's Eye to get filthy drunk and do stupid things on camera.
Speaking of on camera, our final accessory today is none other than Destruct-O-Tron's painfully dated camcorder. This antiquity first showed up in Super Haters #287 when Todd was hell-bent on making a Super Haters reality TV show (hence his desire for drunken hijinks). While the reality show never got off the ground, he did manage to film Mind's Eye pooping. And that's gotta be worth something, right?
Before I split today, I'd like to share a couple of things with you, including this incredible 3D Disgust-O-Tron by Byron Winton:
Byron made this model as reference for his recent Super Haters Guest Week(s) stint, and I meant to share it earlier but it just slipped my mind. And... while we're on the topic, Byron has posted a detailed account of his Super Haters work, discussing the development of his comics and his artistic process. Check it out!
That's it for today. See you tomorrow for The Many Armors of Destruct-O-Tron pt 3: Changing Colors.
