Machine Man #16-17 (1980)


From bad to worse, DeFalco is now writing this book that is really, really begging to be cancelled.  In this issue, Machine Man takes on a so-called (self-professed) “master of the mystic arts.”  Really not the right villain for a robot hero.

The book reads like 1960s Marvel, and if that’s not enough, it name checks The Rockford Files.  Absolutely nothing here feels youthful or new.

First appearance of Madame Menace.
