Just thought I'd write this document to show what universe
Pantsman is set in, and what kind of universe it
Short answer : It's really, really messed up.
Now this answer would satisfy mere mortals, but not
you and me, who want continuity, dammit, so now the long version....
"....As Shao Khan and
Shinnocks forces opened up the dimensional
portals to Earth Realm, something occured that they didn't expect.
very fabric of the multiverse started collapsing, causing different
realities to merge. Soon, the Death Star was battling
was getting his ass handed to him by Snake-Eyes, and Homer Simpson
found himself working for Cobra
Commander . At this point, both the Elder
Gods and the Elders of the Universe stepped in to clean up the mess.
managed to return most realities to normal, but ended up creating
several new ones...." These are the words of Raiden.....
One of those realities is the Pantsman Universe, and amalgaman of
the GIJOE cartoon, comic and toy universes.
All this while overlapping
with several other alt. universes too.
As a result, you'll see toy-only characters,
like Sidetrack, cartoon-only
characters like Sparks mingling with comic characters.
In this universe, GIJOE
is not as covert as in the comic, nor is Cobra.
Additionally,several Joes that died in the comic are alive here.
Several stories from both the comic and the toon have happened here,
so far referenced, for example, have been the
Millville story and "The Viper
GIJOE Headquarters looks like the cartoon HQ, but also
undeground floors, like the Pit. (any of them)
In the future, it could be that elements from non-Joe
universes are also
incorporated, whenever I feel like a cross-over.
Some universes are not in the Pantsman one,
though, such as :
- The Buffyverse (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) as people commented on
Buffy fanfic in "Settling
- Power Rangers, as Hawk mentioned it was just a TV show in
"Pantsquest - part 1"
- The simpsons, Zartan mentioned watching the show in "Pantsquest,
Who's Who ? AKA
The Order Of Battle.....
As we are talking parody, persons in these funfics are dumber than they
