#84: Marvel Universe Juggernaut

After the past few months of only seeing Iron Man on the Marvel Universe pegs at Target, I was shocked to see some new figures hanging from the pegs, with Juggernaut right there on the end of one. He's one of the figures I've been trying to find, so I immediately grabbed him. He was the only one on the pegs, and unfortunately none of the other figures I want were there. I don't have any particular interest in the Juggernaut as a character, but I do have a fondness for the bulky oversized figures in the Marvel Universe line. Maybe it just feels like a better deal, getting all that plastic. Although not quite as bulky as the Hulk figures, Juggernaut fills up a lot of room in his plastic bubble, and has a nice heft to him. He's a well designed figure, so he looks really cool. He has plenty of useful articulation, and none of it mars his appearance. I think the only thing that could be done to improve the figure would be a removable helmet. His head can move back and forth, at least.

It's a good thing that Juggernaut's unstoppability only applies to voluntary motions (or he has some control over its use), or at least I think it does. Otherwise, what if he tripped and fell? Then hit the ground, but kept falling... falling... falling? Then what?


  1. Hmm, I suppose he would rupture the core, then drag a whole glut of magma with him and create the worlds newest super-volcano when he blew out the crust on the other side somewhere in rural China.

    On the other hand, what would even trip him, his foot is unstoppable? If he tangled his own feet they would just tear through each other.

    Wow, I just put a lot of thought and physics into that.

  2. Maybe he tripped because he's drunk. Or maybe he was spinning in circles and got dizzy.
