I was thinking that this action figure really ought to have a name
and a comic strip.
The figure could be named Silver Streak in partnership with Golden
Girl. They would be known as the Diamond Duo.
Their evil nemeses would be the vaporous Chlorina, who could weaken
and ultimately dissolve Golden Girl in her presence…, and
Fire Scale, who casts a dark pallor over Silver Streak and renders
Silver embarrassed to show his or her face in public.
Golden simply has to make certain that she is never in the same
vicinity as evil Chlorina, but luckily, Silver can don his fantastic
Cuprinil body suit to repel the dark forces of Fire Scale.
Just think of the adventures these two could have!
Stopping gem stone smugglers, improving safety conditions in foreign
mines, capturing jewelry thieves, aiding the Jeweler’s Vigilanty
Committee, upholding the Patriot Act(!)…
And along the way, they could be jewelry store owners in their
civilian personas, with all of the “white gold mine” stories and
other humorous customer encounters that we have cumulatively amassed
adding to the daily interest.
The cartoons could ultimately be printed and compiled into booklet
form and available as a fundraiser for Orchid.
