RAJ COMICS SPOTLIGHT #6
This comic (from the fine folks at Raj Comics in Delhi, India), is the final part of a larger crossover. Besides the usual characters that you'd expect to see (Dhruva, Nagraj, and the Fighting Toads), those wacky guys decided to throw in a few unexpected cameos. Have a look.
See how confused this girl looks? Don't worry, by the time this comic is through, we'll all be just as confused as her.
Nagraj meets up with two of the Toads. But is it really Nagraj? He looks a little sinister there doesn't he? The toads suspect something too, that's why they're whispering.
Since when did Nagraj have Plastic Man's powers? Oh that's right, NEVER. And the mask comes off.
And the costume comes off as well (thankfully, the pants stay on). But this guy has other tricks up his sleeve, as you'll soon see.
Now these next few pages are the ones that will really perplex you for a minute.
Now for the reveal: All those "cameos" were the same guy. Apparently, he's some sort of shape-shifter that got his powers from the mad scientist in the next sequence. Now why would a shape-shifter waste his time wearing a disguise in the earlier part of the comic? (Yes, it is the same guy.)
Since this is a seventy page long comic, we're skipping a lot of the subplots. So here's the short summary: while the four toads are battling villains on the street, Nagraj and Dhruva infiltrate the criminal mastermind's lair.
After Dhruva and Nagraj battle through a legion of monsters that were protecting their creator, the toads show up at the last minute to join in the final showdown and save the green-haired lady.
And of course it goes without saying that there's a happy ending.
Or should I say that it could've went without saying there's a happy ending, but those kooky guys went and wrote "happy ending" on the last page. *Oh, you guys*
