HAHAHAHA Greetings, all you infinitely replaceable Earth humanoids! It is me, your magnanimous tyrant, The Mysterious Dr. X! I figured I should probably take a little time out of my day full of Secret Science Stuff to write that article I promised, so here it is!
Today is part three of our (probably) three-part series on Mad Max! We spent some time talking about the series in general, and then took a closer look at exactly what he looked like (statistically) in the first two films, Mad Max and The Road Warrior. Today we look at the final movie (chronologically) in the series- which is also considered the weakest entry, and definitely the most polarizing- Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.

And when he wandered off into the wastes at the end of Beyond Thunderdome, as we can see, he was more than capable of holding his own!
I gotta say, these blocks have been pretty fun to do! I just hope Fury Road doesn’t mess this up too bad (it takes place after Mad Max but before The Road Warrior, so if it really shakes stuff up, this post and the previous one will both become at least partially invalid, a fate I hope not to see come to pass).
Anyway, thanks for listening, children! I am your host, The Mysterious Dr. X, saying “WE DON’T NEED TO KNOW THE WAY HOME”!
