0706 Billy by FutureDami 0706 Billy by FutureDami
I kind of like this character "Billy" from the hit film Laserblast.

[link]

The problem I have with him is more the premise of the story, assuming it has one. A revenge fantasy works well if the character is really downtrodden and mistreated. We as the audience are right there with him and cheering as he metes out justice and all that crap.

Only... Billy doesn't have anything to avenge at all. He has a van, a girlfriend who was probably considered hot in the 70s, and the house all to himself as his wealthy mom goes on extended business trips.

So I think the laser/aliens thing was just as excuse for sociopath billy to have a violent tantrum. This would have happened eventually anyway.

It does - It has a pose that just tells you that Billy's "READY FOR SUM FOOTBALL"
