Will the REAL Remo Please Stand Up?

With the knowledge of a new Destroyer movie coming out, and distrustful of the big Hollywood machine, Remo decided to do the casting himself.

Does Sinanju Make Your Wrists Thick?

Some Destroyer fans are under the wrongful impression that Remo's wrists are thick because of his Sinanju training and that is simply not true. At no time were Chiun's wrists ever mentioned as being thick... this is a weird trait that Remo carries all on his own.

To help show the truth of the matter we obtained an x-ray machine and the two Masters of Sinanju were kind enough to submit themselves to its radioactive fury for the fan's enlightenment.

Harold Smith is forced to send Remo and Chiun after Beasley when his refusal to accept "No means no!" leads to tens of thousands of Japanese corpses, and a new plan to make the islands his once and for all.

Unfortunately for the nation's innocents caught in the crossfire the trend is catching on and growing to epic proportions.

Only Remo and Chiun have the skills to shelve the book permanently. But why has Robert Powers, the author who had denounced his evil book, backtracked out of a peaceful life to spread this new message of guns and death? And who is whispering the secret voice in his ear that dreams of both ancient conquests and bloody vengeance against the House of Sinanju?

Impossible? Let's Test It...

After seeing the movie HANCOCK, my friend Jeremy expressed doubt that someone would actually be able to continue standing after having someone's head rammed up their bum. Hancock himself was in the neighborhood, and with my little brother's assistance, helped Jeremy test his hypothesis for truth and accuracy...

Favorite Character #7: CHIUN



Name: Chiun

Property: Ongoing paperback novel series; ten-title cartoon graphic novel series

Genre: Men's Adventure

Created by: Warren Murphy & Richard Sapir

Character Background/Synopsis: His name is Chiun, and he is the Master of Sinanju. Sinanju is not only the tiny, isolated fishing village in the West Korean Bay that Chiun calls home and is the guardian ruler over, but it is also the name of the sun-source of the martial arts invented by the master's distant ancestor and passed on faithfully from father to son. Gaining power and force continuously with each succeeding generation for the last five thousand years, the Art of Sinanju is currently a super combat form, bestowing upon its practitioners vast super powers and abilities.

What makes him/her cool: Because he is the master of the Art of Sinanju, Chiun is literally the deadliest man alive, able to move as silent as a falling hair and known to decapitate a room full of armed warriors almost casually. But what really makes him fun are his impossible to figure out personal quirks and idiosyncrasies which, together with with his maniacal temper and belief that everyone in the world was born to bother the sh*t out of him, makes for some hilarious but frightening moments.
