Regarding the Contemplator's Buddha-like appearance: In his introduction, they were downright blatant about it, as he introduced himself to Captain America as "Mister Buda." Jack Kirby was never known for his subtlety...

When I saw "Monty Python's Flying Circus" in the list of audio clips, I was expecting it to be the bit about "Ken Buddha and his inflatable knees." I wasn't expecting the Spanish Inquisition...

Since they asked about the Controller's brother Vincent and what happened to him: While it would be reasonable to assume that Basil killed Vincent, either in a fit of rage or in the old "your usefulness has ended" tradition, Vincent's death actually had nothing to do with his brother. Vincent had his own reasons to carry a grudge against Tony Stark, and when he tried to kill Stark, he wound up crossing paths with ANOTHER assassin called "The Mercenary" (who had disguised himself as Tony in order to get close to his own target) and Vincent and the Mercenary killed each other in the confusion.

Nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.

Their chief weapon is surprise. Surprise and fear... fear and surprise.... their TWO weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Their THREE weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Their four...no... amongst their weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise...

Wow, the penis talk started early on this one. The text mentioned Colossus's eyeballs could deflect .45 calibre bullets, but strangely didn't say anything about his dick.

As for the bare legs thing, I have a Wizard X-Men Collector's Edition from the 90s where Dave Cockrum said Colossus's costume originally did show his bare legs, but Len Wein (the editor) didn't like bare legs for male characters so Cockrum drew him with blue tights in human form and bare legs in armoured form (due to the unstable molecules in his costume).

Didn't Constrictor eventually turn out to be a deep cover SHIELD agent?
