Cyberskull: Ha, that wasn't me, you protoplasmic preteen pinhead! That was just a shell, a prototype. You can't defeat Cyberskull, I am everywhere! All the world's information, all the world's wealth, is mine for the taking! Soon I will know everything, I will have everything-I will be a digital god!

The slightly inferior sequel to the superb slice of Max magic that was "The Cyberskull Virus".
24 March 2014 | by (ukwitchcountry) – See all my reviews

Well, not to say that this is a bad episode or anything cause it's definitely not it's just to me, compared to the first appearance of one of the most awesome and cool villains in the series in an episode that I loved to death because I found it such a hugely fun, crazy over-the-top and all-round tour-de-force of a story which is one of my favourites, this just lacks a tiny bit somewhere. I don't find Cyberskull nearly as impressive as when he was a virtually invincible, walking tyrannical computer virus that could warp and transform reality at will, which was a concept that I thought they really managed to animate in such an awesome way visually. It's not exactly "The Next Level" at all, he's in fact considerably downgraded and reduced, the way he now has to possess human beings and inhabit diminutive and gigantic robotic versions of himself, and I just plain don't think he's as much fun this time around. I don't like the way he sort of twice re-uses his epic "Digital God!" line, come on now guys, you could have thought up some snappy new material for freaking Cyberskull surely! And I really do hate the stupid goofy character design of the mind-controlled head of the gaming corporation, he looks like a moron's badly-drawn negative extreme stereotype of what a nerd should be! I noticed that in the scene where "J.C." is first possessed his eyes look like Tetris for a moment! I mean all of the scenes with the deceptively harmless-looking but super-strong Cyberskull figurine are great and a lot of fun. It makes me laugh when Norman says after just being sent flying by the pretty scary little menace - "He's small but wiry!" I also find it hilarious in the scene where Norman punches an electrified computer door and gets a shock and then the computer politely informs him that his grunts of pain are not the correct access codes! It's not a brilliant episode but it is topped-off by one corker of a creepy epilogue with Cyberskull preserving what's left of his mind by hiding inside the doll-sized robot that springs to life in the trash can and menacingly says: "I'm Cyberskull, it's time to play", in what is obviously a nicely-done little homage to Chucky from Child's Play! And about the toys of Mighty Max for a second.. There are many people who played with them as kids that like to collect them as adults, and there are fascinating videos on Youtube of reviews of all the Doom Zones and stuff, and I considered collecting them too, and that's fine that some fans like to do that, but I changed my mind, I mean what would I do, 'play' with them? Put them on display on some shelf or put them away in boxes where they can only gather dust? I think sometimes certain things should just remain in the past where you can best remember them. Anyway it's not perfect, but this is yet another good example of an excellent series that will always be classic to me.
