History:

(Skybox Ultraverse trading card #72 (fb) - BTS) - Irving Finkle was a business executive and as he grew older, he became more ruthless in building his empire. But his body became frail, so he turned to black magic from unrevealed means; from that, he could turn his body into 7' stone golem to crush those in his way. The only side effect is that Finkle's heart has since become actual stone, but this has apparently made no change in his behavior.

 

 

 

Comments: Uncredited creators.

If memory serves me correct, one of the "Ultraverse Founders" Tom Mason stated that every character in the Ultraverse trading card set was meant to appear in the comics (altho I think Requiem was never intended to make it, see my comments there). There are several unique characters that only appeared in the 1st series (1993). The 2nd Ultraverse trading card series provided additional background info on some of the characters while the 3rd set had beautiful painted art. The Ultraverse had a few gimmicks, so I consider the trading cards as adding to the Ultraverse experience. With patience and hunting, you can score yourself a cheap base set.

So I wonder whose foe he was intended to be? Prime or Mantra maybe? Perhaps even Prototype?
