|Tomax and Xamot...or is it Xamot and Tomax?|
|On the run|
Fast forward to a trip at my local drug store only to browse through the comics only to see Tomax and Xamot had made their first appearance in the comics. I was so excited because I love the way the twins interact with others. For example, when one gets punched the other feels it. That, for some reason, always stuck with me through the years and allowed my battles as a child to be entertaining to say the least.
I must apologize, I have spent this entire post talking about my love of the twins without giving you any facts. Tomax and Xamot were first introduced in 1985 for the Real American Hero series that promoted the G. I. Joe toy line. They also made their appearance in Marvel Comics in 1985 with their first appearance being in issue # 37. They have gone on to star in other comics from the Joe Universe as well as make appearances in the G.I. Joe app Battleground. (An app they should bring back by the way)

Well, I could go on and on about the Crimson Twins, but I feel I am biased and you should make your own decisions about how bad ass Xamot and Tomax were.
Until next time, get your READ on or in this case, watch some classic cartoons. COBRA!!!!
