It's not brain surgery, it's Steve Gerber. Oh---it IS brain surgery
I originally thought I'd have a few hundred words about the passing of the Soviet Union, how its former political existence still effects the world, and what a fine exemplar of humanity Gerber fashioned in the new Red Guardian. Her civilian guise, Tania Belinsky, is called upon by Dr. Stephen Strange to perform a one-of-a-kind surgery: replace the brain of Kyle Richmond within his own body!
Meanwhile, a plan of sudden inspiration appears...as Chondu's body is changed in horrible, childish ways by the time his mind is transplanted within one of Ruby's artificial brains. Immortality, however, assures this need not be the end of Chondu's horrible, super-human experience.
Instead of discussing the Soviet Union, or the plot, I spent the evening playing a golf video game with my best friend. When do I ever take real time off to enjoy her?
