Death's Head hoax cover

Death's Head...A mechanoid Freelance Peacekeeping Agent who wanders through time and space, originally created by Simon Furman & Geoff Senior. He first appeared in a one-page comic strip called "High Noon Tex" so that Marvel could establish the rights to him before his Transformers UK appearance (in UK continuity, he killed Bumblebee. He got better...). Later he fought The Doctor, the protaganist of the BBC series Doctor Who, then went to the far future and fought the Dragon's Claws (imagine the world as a giant FPS multiplayer arena. The Claw's are the government's enforcers, trying to pacify the "players"), at which point he kinda died. Then he was rebuilt by genius gang member, who tried to be his sidekick. Death's Head later travelled to the year 2020 and met the Iron Man of (*shock*) 2020, Arno Stark. After a friendly brawl, Death's Head tells Arno, who was now feeling disenchanted with being a merc, to hang in there and believe in himself. He also ran into She-Hulk, the Fantastic Four, & Kang. He was reimagined (butchered) in the early 90s by Dan Abnett & Liam Sharp, during which time he seemed to appear in every Marvel UK comic at some point.
In 1994, Furman & Senior collaborated on What If? #54, What If Death's Head I had lived? (Expect a review in THE FUTURE.)
Recently, Death's Head turned up in the S.W.O.R.D. series. Supposedly, this is DH before he met the Transformers, but due the differances in design, I just classify him as the Death's Head of the Earth-616 universe...

Crazy things happen in OUTER SPACE

An all-new, all-different remix of OUTER SPACE #17!

Enough expository banter! Now you read!

BREAKING NEWS: Mr Adam meant to say "will slowly die after we reach the moon".

(Where it says "LANDS THE OCEAN", that is exactly what it's supposed to be.)
