Possibly I am late to the dance, but "Eagleland"?

Should MacGuffin be in this? "Once Upon A Joe" had a "MacGuffin Device" that could alter reality; Shipwreck found it and it made the characters from his story to the orphans come alive.

  • Mixed Marriage: Quick Kick's father is Japanese and his mother is Korean.

The trope is now known as Maligned Mixed Marriage. Was the couple's interrracial relationship looked down upon in-universe?

Yes, it states on the back of his file card (link - http://www.yojoe.com/filecard/85/quickkick.shtml ) that he wasn't accepted by either the Japanese or Korean kids in his neighborhood due to his mixed ethnicity. Moving link back to main.

In the last volume of "GI Joe vs. the Transformers," "Black Horizon," (volume 4) Destro received payment for transporting what seems to be mushrooms in the bottom of his ships. Since the shipment was lost and he still got paid well, as well as Pythonia not being honest about the mushrooms' purpose, he admits to Mistress Armada that he feels he might have "sold out the human race."

On the other side of the communication, Pythona reveals to Mindbender that Destro's services were only a means to get the Autobots exposed to the mushrooms, which are organic devices designed so the Autobots can be located by the Nyarath, a large, floating, biological transport which hunts the Autobots and their human allies to their underwater base.

What kind of trope would this qualify for?
