O is for Outlaw
And it was M.A.S.K.'s job to stop V.E.N.O.M.
I loved M.A.S.K. toys as a kid and the cartoon was better than most from the '80's. While I hadn't been into vehicle toys since my love for Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars from well before elementary school, M.A.S.K grabbed me as awesome alternative to Transformers. I also liked the scale of the figures and the fact that each mask the heroes and villains wore had unique powers.
I still remember that M.A.S.K stands for Mobile Armored Strike Kommand and that V.E.N.O.M stands for Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem. Miles Mayhem, that is (M.A.S.K was led by Matt Tracker).
It would be cool to see Hasbro (they bought out Kenner) bring these back.
It would be even cooler to see Hasbro allow Wizards of the Coast to make RPG's of M.A.S.K, G.I. Joe, Transformers, and Battle Beasts that was cross-compatible. Think World of Darkness but where the games actually worked together.
