Alongside the Pookey doll, we also recovered a half-completed colouring book from the Xister's lair, apparently modified using some variety of arcane science.
"But I'm in the open air now! Why do I not burst into flames?"
"The MAD THINKER! But...his specialty is ANDROIDS!"
"It's the one INFALLIBLE method of DESTROYING a flaming android!"
"I've got to find some isolated spot, where no one will be
INJURED by what I'll do with my FLAME!"
"There seemed to be NOTHING he couldn't do with that
flaming body of his!"
It's difficult to know just what to make of these creations. In the character of the flaming android there may be a veiled desire on the part of Xister to set fire to the assassin-bot, Maskatron, who has recently betrayed his former master and absconded with Xister's ex-consort, Spirella, in a stolen time machine. But then, there are strange, homo-erotic overtones to the pictures as well (not that there's anything wrong with that -ed). Perhaps Xister has a secret crush on Maskatron, and his current state of fury is fueled by secret jealousy. We'll know more once we manage to get the hypnotist in custody, where we can subject him to a series of psychological tests.
