- From Letters Page Interlude 7 - Nemeses
- All of Guise's nemeses seem fairly wacky except Argentium, how did this rather serious-seeming character wind up involved? Argentium is not really a Guise villain, but a writer noticed that they have similar powers (shape-changing) and it would be funny if they fought. Argentium was pulling a job at a power plant and Guise happened to be the one who stopped him. Argentium was always good as escaping when heroes had him on the ropes. Guise was just the first one to pull out a fire extinguisher and be all "Hey, it's like in Terminator. Get it?" and it actually worked, freezing him in place and allowing Argentium to be captured - thus the animosity.
To Other Works
- Argentium's "liquid metal" appearance and the background art evoking a steel foundry brings to mind the finale of the film Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
