In the past Transformers and G.I. Joe have shared a universe on more than one occasion. I’ve covered all of the comics and elements of the cartoons were shared between them and two other Hasbro lines turned cartoons, Inhumanoids and surprisingly Jem (namely Geraldo Rivera ripoff Hector Ramirez, while other characters bounced between Transformers and G.I. Joe. While Paramount and Hasbro’s “All-Spark Studios” have no plans to merge them together in movie form, Spinoff Online reports plans for the special mission force to share a universe with other planned movies based on MASK, Micronauts, ROM: Spaceknight, and…Visionaries? Okay, wait, Matt Trakker DID show up in the G.I. Joe toy franchise at one point as part of some anniversary (but Sgt. Slaughter and the Street Fighter game characters were properly included back during the “A Real American Hero days) so there is a precedence and I don’t see where the Joes and Mobile Armored Strike Kommand couldn’t get along, but Micronauts? Rom? VISIONARIES?
Look, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is awesome and all and I kind of like that they’re considering more movies for Transformers and Star Wars to take different looks at the universe, but how the heck do the Visionaries, who exists in a post-apocalyptic magic and tech world, fit in with any of these guys. I could even buy Rom and the Micronauts. Both had successful Marvel comics runs and were part of the Marvel universe (and still are even if they can’t appear, like Godzilla.) But this is just pushing things, guys. What’s next, adding in Furby? The Battle Beasts?
