The author himself – Hadrian from his own Mechanical Maniacs Moments. In both cynical Future flavor and psychotic Dark. Hardian was one of the most influential team scene writers. His influence continued in the Mechs canon long after his tenure as Hardman was over and was even felt in the Mechs series finale! One regret I have is that he never properly finished the Mechanical Maniacs Moments. My quickie joke ending just isn’t a good substitute.
