While other sites may be content to bring you Rocktober, Shocktober or Mohawktober, ComicsAlliance is committed to commemorating the things that really
matter! That's why this month, we're bringing you 31 days of Youngblood's teenage strongman as we celebrate Badrocktober!DID YOU KNOW...
Even though he's the largest and strongest member of Youngblood, Badrock is only 16 years old, having been mutated into his current form when his father's science experiment went haywire. As a result, he's the most immature and impulsive member of the team. One more time for those of you in the back: He's the most immature and impulsive member of a team created by The Rob Liefeld. You can see why this would create a problem.
Badrock was the most popular member of the team among the public, which is why he was the first to -- within the story, at least -- get a movie option based on his life.
Thomas McCall's original codename was "Bedrock," which explains why his original catchphrase was "Yabba Dabba DOOM!" After a few issues, though, both name and catchphrase were changed, the former to "Badrock" and the latter to "Please don't sue me Time Warner!"
Join us tomorrow for more Badrocktober celebrations!
