MEAN MACHINE ANGEL

When he was young, he was gentle, nice and utterly unlike his viciously criminal family - The mass-murdering, Cursed Earth desperadoes and cannibals - THE ANGEL GANG.

Pa Angel was not pleased by this, and kidnapped a surgeon from nearby Texas City to operate on him, making him the crazed cyborg he is now. He has a biomechanical right arm and a plasti-steel dome over his skull with a dial on the front.

But despite these obvious cosmetic cybernetics - Mean Machine is actually 65%-70% cyborg.
Spine, neck and legs have been given enhancements. And all these give him immense superhuman strength, agility and speed above peak human and a certain degree of invulnerability to damage that would kill a normal human.
And is capable of running at top speed thru walls with his head as a battering ram.

His head dial has four settings; from 1, where he's surly and disagreeable, all the way up to 4, which is when he is fully berserk. His favorite attack is running at high speed and head-butting with his plasti-steel skull.
Means headbutt is so powerful he can stop a vehicle as big as a starship from taking off.
On rare occasions, an extremely hard headbutt causes Mean Machine's dial to get stuck on 4½, which causes him to enter an Uncontrollable Butt Frenzy, where he can't stop headbutting.

Judge Dredd Killed Mean Machine and most of his family during the Judge Child saga, but Mean was brought back from the grave by the Judge Child to seek revenge on Judge Dredd.
At the end of his return, he was captured by the Mega-City One judges and imprisoned. While there have been escapes and attempts to cure him, he is usually incarcerated in Iso-Cube 666 (which holds the most dangerous foes Dredd has gone up against and subsequently captured) in Mega-City One. He is also occasionally "loaned out" to the Judges for missions, with Dredd famously impersonating his father on one occasion, thru hypnosis and psychotropic treatments.

He once married a competing Cursed Earth criminal named Seven-Pound Sally Suggs (named after the 7lb hammer she used when committing her crimes). This turned out to be a scam, as she easily tricked him into demonstrating his highest setting by ramming the side of the shack the Angels lived in, collapsing it on the rest of the Angels and allowing her to abscond with the loot the Angels had extorted from neighboring people as "wedding gifts". Mean Machine later discovered that she had born him a son, Junior, who is exactly as kind and gentle as Mean was during his childhood.

In Judge Dredd Megazine #218-20, Mean Machine received a cranial cybernetic implant called a Warden Device, which delivers extreme pain whenever he gets angry, so he could be released into society to marry Iso-cube visitor Porsha Wuss. Mean quickly shorted out the device and was reincarcerated.

Over the Years Mean machine or his family have added a few more "enhancements" to make him even "more Mean" - including hidden guns and Knives in his cyborg arm.

If People paid me in cash instead of figures for customs - I just might get a new camera, pc and scanner
I feel like Matthew Murdock in the Daredevil film - waiting to be paid in Wheels of cheese and fish

Hmm, maybe you should try sell some customs on a website?
Not sure how effective that is.. just a though
Punstarr - Friday, October 5, 2007
You have a shot of him in the movie? I don't remember a cyborg among those cannibals (not that I'm questioning... I believe you, bro)... then again I last saw the movie when it was in the theaters.
Unknown User - Friday, October 5, 2007
YES !!! :roll:
A movie version of him was obviously
I already said so - why would I make that up?

Unknown User - Monday, October 1, 2007
Thanks man but hes more MEAN than Bada$$
LOL you talking about the guy who played Doctor Hill in REANIMATOR?
yeah I think its around the eye area - see what youre talking about
Personally I think he looks a bit like Boss Falcone from Batman Begins in the face, but I was kinda going for Michael berryman from Hills Have Eyes (original Wes Craven one)
What do you mean you don't know who he is?
Read the back story - it tells you where hes from and who he is - Hes also in the JUDGE DREDD MOVIE fighting Stallone and going to be in the next Legendary Heroes Figure series
Captain Coder and Doc Nightmare -
A full length pics missing guys, showing his Cyberarm functions? And a comicstrip one
THESE ONES
Can I re-add it, Please?

No clue who this is but he looks badarse. His head kinda looks like that actor who played the bad guy in the movie "The Guyver".
