But then, just so you don't get the wrong idea about him and forget about his cute and cuddly side, MANNY joins the "SQUADDIES" as he makes his first appearance in the SUPER HERO SQUAD universe.

The "Trick or Treat" part is alright,

Ya happy?) Oh, plus, there's a Halloween Party at the Baxter Building! C'mon…you're all invited!

Now, the SHS characters are supposed to be squat and cute.
Let's hope that "L'il Manny" is rendered that way.

Hey, Leonel Alexis Castellani... if it helps any, you couldn't go wrong if you emulated the style of Colleen Coover (from the X-Men: First Class series) - as shown, lovingly in this old post [HERE].


Aww.... c'mon. Isn't he ADORABLE?
You just want to squeeze that tooshie!
*ahem* sorry.

If Manny is to be featured in the comic, then I wonder how long it'll be until he's on the cartoon and then... made into a tiny little Squaddie figure?!?!?

OOOOH! I want that so bad I'm AFRAID I can hardly wait.
And you know what that means...
"WHOMSOEVER KNOWS FEAR..." GETS HUGS!

-------------
So, it looks like ALL -TREATS and NO TRICKS this Halloween!

Tamam Shud!

I LOVE the rendition of Manny on the Super Hero Squad cover. With these two plus that month's issue of Thunderbolts, I'll have to sell plasma or something! I need to finish grad school :(

Great post, thanks for the work!
