#312 (12/1985; FIRST PRINTING;

** FIRST appearance of Karl Morgenthau aka the Original FLAG SMASHER cover and story; 

Wikipedia Notes;

** The original FLAG SMASHER version was most often a foe of Captain America while other adversaries include the Punisher, Moon Knight, Ghost Rider, the Runaways, the Liberteens and Deadpool.

** A group called the Flag Smashers appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe / Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2021), led by a female version of the Karl Morgenthau incarnation renamed Karli Morgenthau (portrayed by Erin Kellyman).

** Mark Gruenwald created Flag-Smasher as a character in the tradition of the Red Skull: a villain with a symbolic aspect that would make him a nemesis specifically for Captain America. Whereas the Red Skull symbolizes Nazism, Flag-Smasher symbolizes anti-patriotism;

** Appearances by; Bushmaster, Diamondback, Serpent Society and MODOK;

** The Flag-Smasher is an athletic man who is a gifted hand-to-hand combatant with great proficiency in the martial art of shotokan karate-do. He is also a brilliant terrorist strategist, and has fluency in English, French, German, Russian, Italian, Japanese, and Esperanto; Following the apparent assassination of the original Flag-Smasher, Canadian ULTIMATUM agent Guy Thierrault assumed the role as the new FLAG SMASHER to continue the spread of anti-nationalism agenda;

 (Los Angeles, CA) July 19 , 2011 Minds Eye Entertainment has picked up the rights to the Canadian comic book Superhero CAPTAIN CANUCK from writer/creator Richard Comely, as announced today by Kevin DeWalt, CEO and President of Minds Eye. Working closely with Comely, Minds Eye is currently in development on a film adaptation based on the comic book series. The first issue of CAPTAIN CANUCK hit newsstands in May 1975. Thirty-Eight years later, the superhero franchise has garnered fans around the world. To date, more than 2 million copies have been sold and 26 different editions have been printed. IDW Publishing recently published two hard cover collections of the original issues that have since sold out. DeWalt said: I have always been a big fan of CAPTAIN CANUCK, and we are honored to be working with Richard on bringing Canada’s greatest Superhero to the big screen. Over the years, there have been a number of licensed CAPTAIN CANUCK products, including t-shirts, sweat shirts, doodle posters, etc. Canada  In addition, CAPTAIN CANUCK has also made the cover of TIME magazine. Creator Comely said: I’ve had a great beginning with Minds Eye. I’m confident we can make a movie that will appeal to audiences both in Canada and around the world.  On July 12, 2012 it was announced that ARNE OLSEN (Canadian-born Hollywood-based screenwriter) is on board to adapt Richard Comely's iconic Canadian crusader CAPTAIN CANUCK for the big screen, for Minds Eye Entertainment (one of Canada's most prolific independent TV & Movie production and distribution companies).  Arne Olsen has had 12 movies produced including  (MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS: THE MOVIE, COP AND A HALF, REPEATERS, ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN II, and RED SCORPION);  Arne Olsen said to expect it to be more of a Suspense Thriller (similar to Carl Bessai’s Repeaters) and not like the typical hollywood Superhero movies.

    Richard Comely tells me, that Captain Canuck was the officially the #1 best Selling "special" edition Canada Post Postage STAMP in Canadian Stamp history at the Time in 1995; A proposed "special" COIN was in the Works for Captain Canuck (but abandoned at the time), but still might surface one day; [NOTE; 99% of ALL vintage Captain Canuck ORIGINAL ART is now in Canada's National Archives]; .

Working closely with Comely, Minds Eye is currently in development on a film adaptation based on the comic book series. The first issue of CAPTAIN CANUCK hit newsstands in May 1975. Thirty-Eight years later, the superhero franchise has garnered fans around the world. To date, more than 2 million copies have been sold and 26 different editions have been printed. IDW Publishing recently published two hard cover collections of the original issues that have since sold out. DeWalt said: I have always been a big fan of CAPTAIN CANUCK, and we are honored to be working with Richard on bringing Canada’s greatest Superhero to the big screen. Over the years, there have been a number of licensed CAPTAIN CANUCK products, including t-shirts, sweat shirts, doodle posters, etc. Canada  In addition, CAPTAIN CANUCK has also made the cover of TIME magazine.

 (Los Angeles, CA) July 19 , 2011 Minds Eye Entertainment has picked up the rights to the Canadian comic book Superhero CAPTAIN CANUCK from writer/creator Richard Comely, as announced today by Kevin DeWalt, CEO and President of Minds Eye. Working closely with Comely, Minds Eye is currently in development on a film adaptation based on the comic book series. The first issue of CAPTAIN CANUCK hit newsstands in May 1975. Thirty-Eight years later, the superhero franchise has garnered fans around the world. To date, more than 2 million copies have been sold and 26 different editions have been printed. IDW Publishing recently published two hard cover collections of the original issues that have since sold out. DeWalt said: I have always been a big fan of CAPTAIN CANUCK, and we are honored to be working with Richard on bringing Canada’s greatest Superhero to the big screen. Over the years, there have been a number of licensed CAPTAIN CANUCK products, including t-shirts, sweat shirts, doodle posters, etc. Canada  In addition, CAPTAIN CANUCK has also made the cover of TIME magazine. Creator Comely said: I’ve had a great beginning with Minds Eye. I’m confident we can make a movie that will appeal to audiences both in Canada and around the world.  On July 12, 2012 it was announced that ARNE OLSEN (Canadian-born Hollywood-based screenwriter) is on board to adapt Richard Comely's iconic Canadian crusader CAPTAIN CANUCK for the big screen, for Minds Eye Entertainment (one of Canada's most prolific independent TV & Movie production and distribution companies).  Arne Olsen has had 12 movies produced including  (MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS: THE MOVIE, COP AND A HALF, REPEATERS, ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN II, and RED SCORPION);  Arne Olsen said to expect it to be more of a Suspense Thriller (similar to Carl Bessai’s Repeaters) and not like the typical hollywood Superhero movies.

    Richard Comely tells me, that Captain Canuck was the officially the #1 best Selling "special" edition Canada Post Postage STAMP in Canadian Stamp history at the Time in 1995; A proposed "special" COIN was in the Works for Captain Canuck (but abandoned at the time), but still might surface one day; [NOTE; 99% of ALL vintage Captain Canuck ORIGINAL ART is now in Canada's National Archives]; .

** Captain N: The Game Master is an animated television series that aired on television from 1989 to 1991, it Lasted 3 season and 34 Episodes. as part of the Saturday morning cartoon lineup on NBC. The show was produced by DIC Animation City and incorporated elements from many of the most popular video games of the time from the Japanese company Nintendo. There was also a comic book version by Valiant Comics, despite only featuring characters from games produced by Nintendo. The show is also part of an hour-long block in Season 2 with The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and with Super Mario World in Season 3 in a half-hour block.

** The TV Series Includes; CAPTAIN N, THE GAME MASTER (portrayed by Dorian Barag in the live-action sequences, voiced by Matt Hill in animated sequences), SAMUS ARAN (Young WOMAN, the main character in METROID; Upon completing Metroid in under five hours revealed Samus to be a young woman.

(VILLAIN; voiced by Garry Chalk), EGGPLANT WIZARD from KID ICARUS (VILLAIN; voiced by Michael Donovan), DONKEY KONG from Donkey Kong (voiced by Garry Chalk);

** The character Captain N first appeared in Nintendo Power magazine, created by Nintendo staff member and magazine editor Randy Studdard. The original concept involved Captain N (originally known as Captain Nintendo) as a Nintendo employee and the Mother Brain as a piece of programming from a Nintendo game pack that went rogue. Captain N had the power to temporarily give life to characters and items from Nintendo games.

** To fulfill an ancient prophecy, Kevin is destined to become the hero "Captain N: The Game Master" and save Videoland from evil forces led by Mother Brain from the floating world/fortress called Metroid. By the time Kevin arrives on the scene, Mother Brain has almost succeeded in capturing the Palace of Power and conquering all Videoland. Kevin (who in Videoland is armed with a Zapper and a belt buckle shaped like an NES controller) and Duke appear suddenly on the other side of the Ultimate Warp Zone before the N Team, which consists of Princess Lana (the acting ruler of Videoland as the first episode explains the absence of her father the King), Simon Belmont, Mega Man, and Kid Icarus, none of whom show any confidence in Kevin's ability in the beginning. However, after Lana is kidnapped by the enemy shortly after Kevin's arrival, the reluctant group puts their differences aside to go on a rescue mission where Kevin eventually gains the others' confidence. During season 2, Game Boy (a human-sized supercomputer shaped like the console) joins the N Team.

** In most episodes, the N Team's enemy is a group of video game villains, usually led by the boisterous and loud Mother Brain who is accompanied by her minions, the Eggplant Wizard from Kid Icarus, the thuggish King Hippo from Punch-Out!!, and the scheming Dr. Wily from Mega Man. A "villain of the week" is featured in some episodes when a particular video game becomes the setting (such as Malkil of Wizards & Warriors). Several other characters make recurring appearances, including Donkey Kong, The Count from Castlevania and Dr. Light from Mega Man. The cast of the Legend of Zelda cartoon reprise their respective roles for several guest appearances during the series.

METROID is an action-adventure game franchise created by Nintendo.

The player controls the bounty hunter SAMUS ARAN, who protects the galaxy from Space Pirates and other malevolent forces and their attempts to harness the power of the parasitic METROID creatures.

METROID combines the platforming of Super Mario Bros. and the exploration of The Legend of Zelda with a science fiction setting and an emphasis on nonlinear gameplay.

Most METROID games are side-scrolling, while the 3D games use a first-person perspective.

Players battle hostile alien enemies and obtain power-ups as they progress through the game world. The series is known for its isolated atmosphere, featuring few non-player characters.

The first METROID was developed by Nintendo R&D1 and released on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1986.

METROID II: Return of SAMUS was released for the handheld Game Boy in 1991.

Super SAMUS (1994), released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, received acclaim and is considered one of the best games on the console.

METROID Fusion (2002) and METROID: Zero Mission (2004) were released for the Game Boy Advance.

The first 3D Metroid game, METROID Prime (2002), was developed by Retro Studios for the GameCube and received acclaim. It was followed by METROID Prime 2: Echoes (2004) and the Wii game METROID Prime 3: Corruption (2007). METROID: Other M (2010)

Mercury Steam developed a new 2D METROID, METROID: SAMUS Returns (2017) for the handheld Nintendo 3DS, followed by METROID Dread (2021) for the Nintendo Switch.

As of September 2012, the METROID series had sold over 17.44 million copies.

It has been represented in other Nintendo media, including the Super Smash Bros. series. Additional media includes soundtracks, comic books, and manga. Along with the 1997 Konami game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, the early METROID games defined the Metroidvania subgenre, inspiring other games with continuous, explorable side-scrolling levels.

SAMUS was one of the first prominent female video game characters.

-----

** TELEVISION: A Metroid animated series was considered for the Super Mario Bros. Power Hour, a cancelled animation block that would have aired in the 1980s. Concept art was produced for the series, which notably featured a male incarnation of Samus. Power Hour never moved forward in the intended format, instead being replaced by The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! which aired in 1989. Mother Brain was the primary villain in the Captain N: The Game Master TV show.

** MANGA; Comics and manga have been made for various magazines based on Metroid, Super Metroid, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and Metroid: Zero Mission in both the United States and Japan. Samus Aran and other Metroid characters also featured in the Captain N: The Game Master comic books by Valiant Comics

*** Proposed MOVIE; In 2003, two producers optioned the rights to create a live-action film based on Metroid, but the rights expired. The director JOHN WOO acquired the rights a few years later, and his studio Lion Rock Productions was to produce and release the film before 2006. The writers included David Greenwalt, who had worked on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Grimm. According to the producer Brad Froxhoven, the film would have explored SAMUS' origin story; she would be an exceptionally talented, but also flawed character who was looking for redemption ... We wanted to see her struggle, to be humbled, and to be forced to rise up against crazy odds. And of course we wanted to see the cool weapons in all of their glory.

** According to Foxhoven, Nintendo was protective due to the failure of the 1993 Super Mario Bros. film. Nintendo had no answers to the team's questions about Samus' personal life, relationships, and other personal characteristics, and was uncomfortable with the film team being the ones to propose those answers. Foxhoven said Nintendo left the discussions appreciating that they needed to develop the franchise further if it were to become a Hollywood film. In 2013, Sakamoto said he could support a film directed by Ryuji Kitaura, the director of the CG scenes in Other M, if the concept and methodologies were good enough.

METROID is an action-adventure game franchise created by Nintendo.

The player controls the bounty hunter SAMUS ARAN, who protects the galaxy from Space Pirates and other malevolent forces and their attempts to harness the power of the parasitic METROID creatures.

METROID combines the platforming of Super Mario Bros. and the exploration of The Legend of Zelda with a science fiction setting and an emphasis on nonlinear gameplay.

Most METROID games are side-scrolling, while the 3D games use a first-person perspective.

Players battle hostile alien enemies and obtain power-ups as they progress through the game world. The series is known for its isolated atmosphere, featuring few non-player characters.

The first METROID was developed by Nintendo R&D1 and released on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1986.

METROID II: Return of SAMUS was released for the handheld Game Boy in 1991.

Super SAMUS (1994), released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, received acclaim and is considered one of the best games on the console.

METROID Fusion (2002) and METROID: Zero Mission (2004) were released for the Game Boy Advance.

The first 3D Metroid game, METROID Prime (2002), was developed by Retro Studios for the GameCube and received acclaim. It was followed by METROID Prime 2: Echoes (2004) and the Wii game METROID Prime 3: Corruption (2007). METROID: Other M (2010)

Mercury Steam developed a new 2D METROID, METROID: SAMUS Returns (2017) for the handheld Nintendo 3DS, followed by METROID Dread (2021) for the Nintendo Switch.

As of September 2012, the METROID series had sold over 17.44 million copies.

It has been represented in other Nintendo media, including the Super Smash Bros. series. Additional media includes soundtracks, comic books, and manga. Along with the 1997 Konami game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, the early METROID games defined the Metroidvania subgenre, inspiring other games with continuous, explorable side-scrolling levels.

SAMUS was one of the first prominent female video game characters.

-----

** TELEVISION: A Metroid animated series was considered for the Super Mario Bros. Power Hour, a cancelled animation block that would have aired in the 1980s. Concept art was produced for the series, which notably featured a male incarnation of Samus. Power Hour never moved forward in the intended format, instead being replaced by The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! which aired in 1989. Mother Brain was the primary villain in the Captain N: The Game Master TV show.

** MANGA; Comics and manga have been made for various magazines based on Metroid, Super Metroid, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and Metroid: Zero Mission in both the United States and Japan. Samus Aran and other Metroid characters also featured in the Captain N: The Game Master comic books by Valiant Comics

*** Proposed MOVIE; In 2003, two producers optioned the rights to create a live-action film based on Metroid, but the rights expired. The director JOHN WOO acquired the rights a few years later, and his studio Lion Rock Productions was to produce and release the film before 2006. The writers included David Greenwalt, who had worked on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Grimm. According to the producer Brad Froxhoven, the film would have explored SAMUS' origin story; she would be an exceptionally talented, but also flawed character who was looking for redemption ... We wanted to see her struggle, to be humbled, and to be forced to rise up against crazy odds. And of course we wanted to see the cool weapons in all of their glory.

** According to Foxhoven, Nintendo was protective due to the failure of the 1993 Super Mario Bros. film. Nintendo had no answers to the team's questions about Samus' personal life, relationships, and other personal characteristics, and was uncomfortable with the film team being the ones to propose those answers. Foxhoven said Nintendo left the discussions appreciating that they needed to develop the franchise further if it were to become a Hollywood film. In 2013, Sakamoto said he could support a film directed by Ryuji Kitaura, the director of the CG scenes in Other M, if the concept and methodologies were good enough.

There was also a comic book version by Valiant Comics, despite only featuring characters from games produced by Nintendo. The show is also part of an hour-long block in Season 2 with The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and with Super Mario World in Season 3 in a half-hour block.

** The TV Series Includes; CAPTAIN N, THE GAME MASTER (portrayed by Dorian Barag in the live-action sequences, voiced by Matt Hill in animated sequences), SAMUS ARAN (Young WOMAN, the main character in METROID; Upon completing Metroid in under five hours revealed Samus to be a young woman.

** The character Captain N first appeared in Nintendo Power magazine, created by Nintendo staff member and magazine editor Randy Studdard. The original concept involved Captain N (originally known as Captain Nintendo) as a Nintendo employee and the Mother Brain as a piece of programming from a Nintendo game pack that went rogue. Captain N had the power to temporarily give life to characters and items from Nintendo games.

** To fulfill an ancient prophecy, Kevin is destined to become the hero "Captain N: The Game Master" and save Videoland from evil forces led by Mother Brain from the floating world/fortress called Metroid. By the time Kevin arrives on the scene, Mother Brain has almost succeeded in capturing the Palace of Power and conquering all Videoland. Kevin (who in Videoland is armed with a Zapper and a belt buckle shaped like an NES controller) and Duke appear suddenly on the other side of the Ultimate Warp Zone before the N Team, which consists of Princess Lana (the acting ruler of Videoland as the first episode explains the absence of her father the King), Simon Belmont, Mega Man, and Kid Icarus, none of whom show any confidence in Kevin's ability in the beginning. However, after Lana is kidnapped by the enemy shortly after Kevin's arrival, the reluctant group puts their differences aside to go on a rescue mission where Kevin eventually gains the others' confidence. During season 2, Game Boy (a human-sized supercomputer shaped like the console) joins the N Team.

** In most episodes, the N Team's enemy is a group of video game villains, usually led by the boisterous and loud Mother Brain who is accompanied by her minions, the Eggplant Wizard from Kid Icarus, the thuggish King Hippo from Punch-Out!!, and the scheming Dr. Wily from Mega Man.

** Since the SUPER MARIO BROS Movies was a HUGE SUCCESS and the LEGEND OF ZELDA Movies is in the Works, Fans are Predicting FUTURE NINTENDO Game Movies Might Include;  SAMUS ARAN, KID ICARUS, METROID and CAPTAIN N, THE GAME MASTER!!! 

** Captain N: The Game Master is an animated television series that aired on television from 1989 to 1991, it Lasted 3 season and 34 Episodes. as part of the Saturday morning cartoon lineup on NBC. The show was produced by DIC Animation City and incorporated elements from many of the most popular video games of the time from the Japanese company Nintendo. There was also a comic book version by Valiant Comics, despite only featuring characters from games produced by Nintendo. The show is also part of an hour-long block in Season 2 with The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and with Super Mario World in Season 3 in a half-hour block.

** The TV Series Includes; CAPTAIN N, THE GAME MASTER (portrayed by Dorian Barag in the live-action sequences, voiced by Matt Hill in animated sequences), SAMUS ARAN (Young WOMAN, the main character in METROID; Upon completing Metroid in under five hours revealed Samus to be a young woman. Although Samus wears the Power Suit throughout most of the Metroid series, she traditionally removes it at the end of most games, often as a result of satisfying certain conditions such as completing the game quickly or with a high percentage of the game's items collected or even both. As a woman in a male-dominated role, Samus has been widely considered a breakthrough for female characters in video games, and is one of the most beloved video game characters of all time by critics and fans alike. Samus is one of the first major female protagonists in a video game games), KID ICARUS (voiced by Alessandro Juliani),   PRINCESS LANA (voiced by Venus Terzo), DUKE (voiced by  Tomm Wright),  MOTHER BRAIN from Metroid (VILLAIN; voiced by Levi Stubbs), KING HIPPO from PUNCH-OUT!! (VILLAIN; voiced by Garry Chalk), EGGPLANT WIZARD from KID ICARUS (VILLAIN; voiced by Michael Donovan), DONKEY KONG from Donkey Kong (voiced by Garry Chalk);

** The character Captain N first appeared in Nintendo Power magazine, created by Nintendo staff member and magazine editor Randy Studdard. The original concept involved Captain N (originally known as Captain Nintendo) as a Nintendo employee and the Mother Brain as a piece of programming from a Nintendo game pack that went rogue. Captain N had the power to temporarily give life to characters and items from Nintendo games.

** To fulfill an ancient prophecy, Kevin is destined to become the hero "Captain N: The Game Master" and save Videoland from evil forces led by Mother Brain from the floating world/fortress called Metroid. By the time Kevin arrives on the scene, Mother Brain has almost succeeded in capturing the Palace of Power and conquering all Videoland. Kevin (who in Videoland is armed with a Zapper and a belt buckle shaped like an NES controller) and Duke appear suddenly on the other side of the Ultimate Warp Zone before the N Team, which consists of Princess Lana (the acting ruler of Videoland as the first episode explains the absence of her father the King), Simon Belmont, Mega Man, and Kid Icarus, none of whom show any confidence in Kevin's ability in the beginning. However, after Lana is kidnapped by the enemy shortly after Kevin's arrival, the reluctant group puts their differences aside to go on a rescue mission where Kevin eventually gains the others' confidence. During season 2, Game Boy (a human-sized supercomputer shaped like the console) joins the N Team.

** In most episodes, the N Team's enemy is a group of video game villains, usually led by the boisterous and loud Mother Brain who is accompanied by her minions, the Eggplant Wizard from Kid Icarus, the thuggish King Hippo from Punch-Out!!, and the scheming Dr. Wily from Mega Man. A "villain of the week" is featured in some episodes when a particular video game becomes the setting (such as Malkil of Wizards & Warriors). Several other characters make recurring appearances, including Donkey Kong, The Count from Castlevania and Dr. Light from Mega Man. The cast of the Legend of Zelda cartoon reprise their respective roles for several guest appearances during the series.

METROID is an action-adventure game franchise created by Nintendo.

The player controls the bounty hunter SAMUS ARAN, who protects the galaxy from Space Pirates and other malevolent forces and their attempts to harness the power of the parasitic METROID creatures.

METROID combines the platforming of Super Mario Bros. and the exploration of The Legend of Zelda with a science fiction setting and an emphasis on nonlinear gameplay.

Most METROID games are side-scrolling, while the 3D games use a first-person perspective.

Players battle hostile alien enemies and obtain power-ups as they progress through the game world. The series is known for its isolated atmosphere, featuring few non-player characters.

The first METROID was developed by Nintendo R&D1 and released on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1986.

METROID II: Return of SAMUS was released for the handheld Game Boy in 1991.

Super SAMUS (1994), released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, received acclaim and is considered one of the best games on the console.

METROID Fusion (2002) and METROID: Zero Mission (2004) were released for the Game Boy Advance.

The first 3D Metroid game, METROID Prime (2002), was developed by Retro Studios for the GameCube and received acclaim. It was followed by METROID Prime 2: Echoes (2004) and the Wii game METROID Prime 3: Corruption (2007). METROID: Other M (2010)

Mercury Steam developed a new 2D METROID, METROID: SAMUS Returns (2017) for the handheld Nintendo 3DS, followed by METROID Dread (2021) for the Nintendo Switch.

As of September 2012, the METROID series had sold over 17.44 million copies.

It has been represented in other Nintendo media, including the Super Smash Bros. series. Additional media includes soundtracks, comic books, and manga. Along with the 1997 Konami game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, the early METROID games defined the Metroidvania subgenre, inspiring other games with continuous, explorable side-scrolling levels.

SAMUS was one of the first prominent female video game characters.

-----

** TELEVISION: A Metroid animated series was considered for the Super Mario Bros. Power Hour, a cancelled animation block that would have aired in the 1980s. Concept art was produced for the series, which notably featured a male incarnation of Samus. Power Hour never moved forward in the intended format, instead being replaced by The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! which aired in 1989. Mother Brain was the primary villain in the Captain N: The Game Master TV show.

** MANGA; Comics and manga have been made for various magazines based on Metroid, Super Metroid, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and Metroid: Zero Mission in both the United States and Japan. Samus Aran and other Metroid characters also featured in the Captain N: The Game Master comic books by Valiant Comics

*** Proposed MOVIE; In 2003, two producers optioned the rights to create a live-action film based on Metroid, but the rights expired. The director JOHN WOO acquired the rights a few years later, and his studio Lion Rock Productions was to produce and release the film before 2006. The writers included David Greenwalt, who had worked on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Grimm. According to the producer Brad Froxhoven, the film would have explored SAMUS' origin story; she would be an exceptionally talented, but also flawed character who was looking for redemption ... We wanted to see her struggle, to be humbled, and to be forced to rise up against crazy odds. And of course we wanted to see the cool weapons in all of their glory.

** According to Foxhoven, Nintendo was protective due to the failure of the 1993 Super Mario Bros. film. Nintendo had no answers to the team's questions about Samus' personal life, relationships, and other personal characteristics, and was uncomfortable with the film team being the ones to propose those answers. Foxhoven said Nintendo left the discussions appreciating that they needed to develop the franchise further if it were to become a Hollywood film. In 2013, Sakamoto said he could support a film directed by Ryuji Kitaura, the director of the CG scenes in Other M, if the concept and methodologies were good enough.

** In most episodes, the N Team's enemy is a group of video game villains, usually led by the boisterous and loud Mother Brain who is accompanied by her minions, the Eggplant Wizard from Kid Icarus, the thuggish King Hippo from Punch-Out!!, and the scheming Dr. Wily from Mega Man. A "villain of the week" is featured in some episodes when a particular video game becomes the setting (such as Malkil of Wizards & Warriors). Several other characters make recurring appearances, including Donkey Kong, The Count from Castlevania and Dr. Light from Mega Man. The cast of the Legend of Zelda cartoon reprise their respective roles for several guest appearances during the series.

METROID is an action-adventure game franchise created by Nintendo.

The player controls the bounty hunter SAMUS ARAN, who protects the galaxy from Space Pirates and other malevolent forces and their attempts to harness the power of the parasitic METROID creatures.

METROID combines the platforming of Super Mario Bros. and the exploration of The Legend of Zelda with a science fiction setting and an emphasis on nonlinear gameplay.

Most METROID games are side-scrolling, while the 3D games use a first-person perspective.

Players battle hostile alien enemies and obtain power-ups as they progress through the game world. The series is known for its isolated atmosphere, featuring few non-player characters.

The first METROID was developed by Nintendo R&D1 and released on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1986.

METROID II: Return of SAMUS was released for the handheld Game Boy in 1991.

Super SAMUS (1994), released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, received acclaim and is considered one of the best games on the console.

METROID Fusion (2002) and METROID: Zero Mission (2004) were released for the Game Boy Advance.

The first 3D Metroid game, METROID Prime (2002), was developed by Retro Studios for the GameCube and received acclaim. It was followed by METROID Prime 2: Echoes (2004) and the Wii game METROID Prime 3: Corruption (2007). METROID: Other M (2010)

Mercury Steam developed a new 2D METROID, METROID: SAMUS Returns (2017) for the handheld Nintendo 3DS, followed by METROID Dread (2021) for the Nintendo Switch.

As of September 2012, the METROID series had sold over 17.44 million copies.

It has been represented in other Nintendo media, including the Super Smash Bros. series. Additional media includes soundtracks, comic books, and manga. Along with the 1997 Konami game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, the early METROID games defined the Metroidvania subgenre, inspiring other games with continuous, explorable side-scrolling levels.

SAMUS was one of the first prominent female video game characters.

** TELEVISION: A Metroid animated series was considered for the Super Mario Bros. Power Hour, a cancelled animation block that would have aired in the 1980s. Concept art was produced for the series, which notably featured a male incarnation of Samus. Power Hour never moved forward in the intended format, instead being replaced by The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! which aired in 1989. Mother Brain was the primary villain in the Captain N: The Game Master TV show.

** MANGA; Comics and manga have been made for various magazines based on Metroid, Super Metroid, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and Metroid: Zero Mission in both the United States and Japan. Samus Aran and other Metroid characters also featured in the Captain N: The Game Master comic books by Valiant Comics

*** Proposed MOVIE; In 2003, two producers optioned the rights to create a live-action film based on Metroid, but the rights expired. The director JOHN WOO acquired the rights a few years later, and his studio Lion Rock Productions was to produce and release the film before 2006. The writers included David Greenwalt, who had worked on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Grimm. According to the producer Brad Froxhoven, the film would have explored SAMUS' origin story; she would be an exceptionally talented, but also flawed character who was looking for redemption ... We wanted to see her struggle, to be humbled, and to be forced to rise up against crazy odds. And of course we wanted to see the cool weapons in all of their glory.

** According to Foxhoven, Nintendo was protective due to the failure of the 1993 Super Mario Bros. film. Nintendo had no answers to the team's questions about Samus' personal life, relationships, and other personal characteristics, and was uncomfortable with the film team being the ones to propose those answers. Foxhoven said Nintendo left the discussions appreciating that they needed to develop the franchise further if it were to become a Hollywood film. In 2013, Sakamoto said he could support a film directed by Ryuji Kitaura, the director of the CG scenes in Other M, if the concept and methodologies were good enough.
