Nexus, animated at last: Animation World Magazine talks with Steve Rude about his 16-year effort to animate Nexus, which finally makes its debut this year at Comic-Con International in the form of a two-minute promotional DVD:

"I wanted Nexus to reflect my own personal vision because I felt that was the only way it would look like Nexus and not some watered-down, committee-produced kiddie version of what the comic book was all about. ...

"You may be surprised to know that, to me, Nexus is very traditional, in that he goes after bad guys and destroys them. That what superheroes do."
