A weird freaky show based on a comic (or did the game come first?)
5 September 2003 | by BlazeFoxSee all my reviews

This show ran on Fox around the same time as Bucky O' Hare. It was based on a comic series (or so I'm told) about a few repairmen turned into superheros after they were exposed to Dr. Mayhem's "Protocola." Later they team up with some others who were unfortunate enough to have had the same experience with the substance.

The heroes were Ms. Megawatt who had electrical powers, Toolbox who had a hammer for a head, Radium Dog the radioactive super pooch who could carry cars in his mouth. Jet Headstrong the man with the detachable rocket for a head, Monkey Kid who throws metal bananas at the bad guys, and Buzz Saw Girl who had a buzz saw for a leg (think Gizmoduck's motorcycle wheel thingie) and they're all trying to stop the evil Dr. Mayhem from taking over the city with his Robot Drone Soldiers.

I was curious as to the origins of this show and I found a website saying that it was a Lucas Arts NES game, I rented the game when it first came out and enjoyed watching the cartoon. But I don't know which came first, or who created it. When I do web searches I mainly get stuff about the game and not much at all about the comic or TV series.

A great show durring Fox Kid's best years in my opinion.

-BlazeFoxKitsuné =^.^> PS: Thanks goes to whoever it was that told me the correct name of the show, my memory of those years isn't great so I had thought it was called "Dynacity Warriors."
