Notes

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.

Trivia

  • In the 20th century, Opal City police officer Matt O'Dare exists as the reincarnation of Brian Savage.

Brian Savage (born February 24, 1971 in Sudbury, Ontario) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey left winger.

Playing career

Savage attended Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School in Sudbury as a teenager. He was a proficient golfer and track athlete. He played one season with the Sudbury Cubs of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League before jumping to college.

The nephew of former NHL player Larry Hillman, Savage was originally drafted in 1991 in the 8th round, 171st overall by the Montreal Canadiens. After completing his college hockey career at Miami University, he began his professional career with the Fredericton Canadiens of the AHL in 1993. His first taste of the NHL came at the tail end of the 1993–94 season, playing in 3 regular season and 3 playoff games.

Savage was the first Montreal Canadien since Joe Malone in 1917 to record six points in a road game when he had four goals and two assists against the Islanders on April 8, 1999. He also recorded the Canadiens' first hat trick in Bell Centre history on October 7, 1996. After several fast starts in the month of October and subsequently fading the rest of those seasons, Savage became known as hockey's Mr. October.

After parts of eight seasons with the Canadiens, Savage was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes on January 25, 2001 along with a 2002 3rd-round pick for Sergei Berezin. Playing only one full season with the Coyotes, he was traded to the St. Louis Blues for their playoff run. Due to the parameters of the trade, he was claimed off waivers by Phoenix in the off-season.

Following the lockout, Phoenix bought out his contract for $1.9 million. Savage signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Flyers prior to the 2005–06 NHL season. After one season in Philadelphia, Savage announced his retirement on September 21, 2006. He is currently the co-owner of the New Mexico Scorpions of the Central Hockey League.

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

HEIL—er, YO, JOE!

Brian Savage is the owner of Fun Publications, which has held the license to the name BotCon and its status as the Official Transformers Collectors' Convention, along with the license to the Official Transformers Collectors' Club, since 2005. Fun Publications was already the organizer of the official G.I. Joe Collectors' Convention and club, which apparently impressed Hasbro enough for them to offer Fun Publications the Transformers convention and club, as well.

Savage's tenure overseeing BotCon began with a number of changes to the convention. Most visibly, the name "Botcon" itself was restored as the title of the official convention, consigning the often-lampooned OTFCC to the rubbish bin.

The date of the convention was changed, prompting howls of outrage from the fandom. BotCon/OTFCC had previously been set around the end of July. The first two BotCons run by Fun Publications were scheduled in the fall; BotCon 2007 was in mid-summer to align with the release of the live-action movie; BotCon 2008 was scheduled for the spring.

Under Fun Publications, the number of convention-exclusive toys rose dramatically. The main toy offering each became a multi-toy boxed set, rather than one to three individually boxed toys. These boxed sets tend to run around $250 each, prompting more howls of outrage from the fandom, even though the per-toy cost is virtually unchanged from the days of 3H's tenure. Additional toys are typically sold at the convention itself; and preregistered attendees receive a bonus toy, often not revealed until the convention itself.

Other changes include pre-convention tours and activities in the host city, and expanded program of events at the convention itself, all of which have naturally been met with howls of outrage by the fandom.

Fun Publication's greater financial resources and/or business model seem to have granted it a greater pull with Hasbro than 3H enjoyed; the seemingly endless delays, changes, missed deadlines and cancellations that plagued 3H's later years have been far less common under Savage's run, though it should be noted that Fun Publications is not immune to the vagaries of being a small licensee to a major multinational corporation.

In early 2008, a number of the exclusive toys for the upcoming BotCon 2008 were stolen from Fun Publications' production run. By April, many had appeared for sale on eBay; the thefts were beginning to eat significantly into the numbers required to ensure Fun Publications would receive enough toys to cover their needs. A copy of an emailed letter that Brian Savage sent privately to fans in possession of stolen BotCon toys was posted publicly by one of the recipients on a Hong Kong newsgroup. He threatened legal action if the product he paid for was not returned to him within two days, so that he could have enough to sell to BotCon attendees. This move was characterized by some fans as a "rampage" and an "unprofessional public display" on the part of Savage... even though it was not made public by him.[1]

But geez, he mighta run it through a spell-check first.
