I was always fascinated with Mr. Mxyzptlk as a kid. If I could choose one weakness as a hero or as a villain, saying my name backwards is a pretty sweet one. Now I know that no one has been trying to get me to say my name backwards, but I can say with some certainty that I have never reversed my name and spoken it aloud. I would even challenge people to try and trick me. It ain’t going to happen.
I like to check out what Hakes has added every week to jump start the pop culture battery (especially after a candy fueled Halloween weekend) when I spotted this classic Mr. Mxyzptlk bendy figure from MEGO. I think I owned the Riddler from this collection when I was a kid, which I think I bought at a garage sale for a dime.
