It occurred to me today that the TV show is entirely wrong.

Captain Scarlet is treated as the greatest hero Spectrum ever had, yet no-one has a thing to say for his unsung comrade, Captain Blue.

Captain Blue is dependable, honest as the day is long and fearlessly brave. More to the point, he is not indestructible.

Captain Scarlet on the other hand isn't even human. He is a Mysteron construct who "claims" to have broken free of their influence. Yeah, right. At least Captain Black has the courage of his convictions and has stuck with the Mysterons through thick and thin. He knows that when you rat out the good guys, you stay ratted.

No, Captain Scarlet should be kept in solitary and dissected to see what makes him tick. He'll get better, he's indestructible. There's no bravery involved if you know you're going to get better - and he's turned traitor once, what's to say he won't do it again?

Captain Blue's the man. Let's settle this once and for all:

Did you ever experience a comic called (I think) "Solo" which had a The Mysterons strip?

Not as good as The Daleks saga in TV21, but interesting.

Are they? Then I wonder if the publisher will compile and print them in a bumper multi-volume set for Christmas? The Marvel comic comps sell decently.

Nah, Sergeant (? can't remember the rank) Green was the hero for being the only man to point out that it's *easy* to be brave when you indestructible, but all he got for making this valid point was a drsssing down from Major (? again dunno is this is the rank) White.

That would be Lt. Green and Col. White.

I am in complete agreement. Even as a wee nipper back in the 60s I preferred Captain Blue to Scarlet. I like in the new CGI version they've made Captain Blue more of a bad ass so he doesn't pale so much in comparison to Mr Indestructable.
