    It's an action figure. Sometimes when you try to make a cartoon character look "lifelike," it comes out a little ... yikes!

    In the 70s and 80s, DC Comics actually had a ripof--er, homage to Popeye in the character of Captain Strong, who turned up time to time in Superman comics...

    And, of course, there was that time Robin Williams played Popeye (here with Shelly Duvall as Olive Oyl)...

    And of course Captain Strong later "inspired" Bibbo Bibbowski, a character I really miss from the Superman comics.
