By MarimoMy Little PonyComments Off on My Little Pony The Movie Prequel Coming in September
A prequel comic to this year’s My Little Pony movie will be coming out on September 5th. No details on the story yet, but the comic will be written by Ted Anderson and drawn by Andy Price, both of whom have experience working on MLP comics.
Edit: According to a Tweet by Andy Price, this prequel seems to be a 4 issue miniseries.
Amethyst (aka “The Purple Puma”) and Steven (aka “Tiger Millionaire”) are tag team champions of the Beach City Underground Wrestling Federation. They retain their titles after winning another fight when Purple Puma suddenly announces that she is quitting because she doesn’t need it anymore—much to Lars’s chagrin (to say the least). Steven still wants to wrestle, so he becomes “Tiger Philanthropist” and is a bit of a John Cena (the wrestling fans among the show’s fans should know where I’m going with this one)—much to Lars’s chagrin (to say the least).
Steven confides to Amethyst that he enjoyed the wrestling because it was something they did together—not just because of Amethyst’s inferiority complex which she doesn’t have anymore. “Tiger” decides to give up the belts—much to everyone’s chagrin (because the natural state of a pro wrestling fan is bitter disappointment). “Purple Puma” comes back to help Steven….put over one of the tag teams—all of whom look like fugitives from wrestling video games.
It kind of seemed like the idea was to do away with this sort of angle. “Tiger Millionaire” was episode 9 and here we are 113 episodes later. There are better more interesting arcs deserving of a sequel (*cough* “The Lion Series *cough*). To that effect, the episode succeeds in what it’s trying to do. Amethyst is no longer being put down like she was earlier in the series, so why continue to wrestle? Steven is being Steven while being “Tiger Philanthropist,” so why continue to play the Ted DiBiase persona (especially against a couple of cheap I.R.S. knockoffs).
Oh, by the way, the next episode is also a sequel of sorts.
