Fan of Robocop? Fan of Terminator? Then you are going to love Robocop Versus the Terminator, written by Frank Miller. Robocop has always been awesome by himself, but when you mix Terminator, Frank Miller and Robocop all wrapped together, you got yourself one delicious burrito that is good to go.
Robocop Versus the Terminator is a four-comic series (or one graphic novel) about the end of humanity, and explores how Alex Murphy, aka Robocop, becomes responsible for both saving and destroying all humans on earth. It turns out that when Robocop’s human mind was combined with technology, it created the consciousness that lead to terminators being born. The last human on earth goes back in time to kill Alex Murphy before he could become Robocop. From this, Robocop discovers the true weight of his existence.
I hope I am not giving anything away by saying this, but Robocop ends up fighting Terminators in the future, alongside man, with advanced weaponry. The result of combining Robocop and Terminators together is very cool. I love every inch of this awesome story. I have always been a fan of both Robocop and Terminator, but the distance that Frank Miller takes such a topic is incredible. Stop whatever you are doing right now and get this comic in your hands. At the time of this writing, it is available here.
The graphic novel Robocop Versus the Terminator stands out as a masterpiece in the realm of science fiction crossovers. Its gripping storyline effectively combines two iconic franchises, providing a thrilling journey for readers. The collaboration between writer Frank Miller and artist Walt Simonson elevates the storytelling to a whole new level, blending action-packed visuals with thought-provoking narratives. Furthermore, the artwork showcases a distinctive and memorable style that resonates with fans of both series, solidifying its exceptional status within the genre.
I probably should also mention that they made this Robocop Versus the Terminator into a video game. The video game was available for the Super Nintendo and the Sega Genesis, and it was awesome as well. Personally, I preferred the Sega Genesis version because it was bloody, and there was a code that put sexy women into the game (seriously). Yes, I love violent video games. Playing Sega Genesis games are no problem (SNES games too) because you can buy either real or knockoff consoles surprisingly cheap. You can even get a combination NES, SNES, and Genesis as one console! Time has been good to technology. Comment below.
