In 2011, Creator/{{Hasbro}} released a re-imagined version of ''MASK'' at NYCC, under the "UNIT: E" umbrella, which includes Hasbro's more famous lines such as ''G.I. Joe'', ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'', and other, not-so-famous (or even out-of-left-field) properties like ''Toys/{{Micronauts}}'', ''WesternAnimation/ActionMan'', ''Stretch Armstrong'', and even ''TabletopGame/CandyLand''. [[http://www.oafe.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UnitE2.jpg Here]]. It seemed to have been [[CompositeCharacter roughly merged]] with another Hasbro property, ''WesternAnimation/{{COPS}}''; it takes place in a futuristic, (even more) dystopian UsefulNotes/{{Detroit}}, where the government has left the Motor City's people to fend for themselves, resulting in widespread chaos. An ancient workshop belonging to the "League of Ancient Wheelmen" was found and used by Matt Trakker (now a police officer) and a new team of civil servants, who use the tech they found to help Detroit's citizenry and combat the decay, as M.A.S.K.

December 2015 saw Hasbro and Creator/ParamountPictures announcing the formation of a shared Hasbro movie universe (using the ''G.I. Joe'' movies as a starting point), which will include this series, as well as the ''Toys/{{Micronauts}}'', the ''WesternAnimation/{{Visionaries}}'' and ''[[ComicBook/RomSpaceknight ROM]]''. 2016 had Creator/IDWPublishing announcing a rebooted comic based on the series, to be part of the new SharedUniverse for Hasbro-based titles called ''[[ComicBook/Revolution2016 Revolution]]''; Miles Mayhem here was previously a member of [[Franchise/GIJoe Joe Colton's Adventure Team]].

* TheStarscream: Sly Rax SpiritualSuccessor: Ten years after the end of ''M.A.S.K'', Kenner (now under Hasbro ownership) created ''WesternAnimation/VorTechUndercoverConversionSquad'', another cartoon-backed toyline about two rival team of agents fighting with superpower-granting helmets and transforming vehicles. According to one of the writers involved in the comics.''Vor Tech'' cartoon, the brand created by Hasbro as a way to reuse the ''M.A.S.K'' toy molds (as the [[Film/TheMask then-recent Jim Carrey movie]] apparently made using the ''M.A.S.K'' name not viable).

* DemotedToExtra: A lot of the chareacters who weren't downright [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome Chucked]] were subject to this in the second season. Most notable being Scott, who was a major character in the first season but in the second season only appeared in the [=PSAs=] at the end of the episodes "For One Shining Moment", "High Noon", and "Cliff Hanger". "High Noon" is also the only season two episode to feature T-Bob, but, like Scott, he only appears in the PSA at the end and he also doesn't have any lines.
