    Micronauts the Lost Voyages 1998

    http://www.innerspaceonline.com/scb1...f66ni9BS_blHBk

    Micronauts fans were finally given a reason to rejoice…well, they would have that is, had they known why. After being trapped in limbo since 1986 The Marvel Micronauts- Commander Rann, Princess Mari, Bug, Acroyear and the evil Baron Karza- were about to make a stunning comeback, and at the helm was an up and coming writer named Shon C. Bury. At his side was a fledgling artist by the name of Cary Nord, and the two budding talents were given carte blanche to do whatever they thought necessary with the book to make it a top seller once again.

    With nothing to lose and everything to gain, they went all out and produced some of the most amazing stories since the series inception back in 1978. But before anyone else had a chance to see the magic they were brewing, the series was unceremoniously cancelled and hidden away, never to be seen or heard from again…that is, until now. 10 years later, the untold story can finally be told, questions can finally be answered, secrets revealed.

    Well it sounds interesting, but the intro is wrong, Bug hadn't been hidden away since 1986, he had a one-shot from Marvel in 1997, a year before this "lost project"



    and the reason they only did Bug was that they had already lost the Micronauts license and could only use the characters Marvel itself had created.

    So color me skeptical about this.

    Councilman 10 from the Venture Brothers always felt like a Bug homage to me.

    Given that Bug doesn't look like Galactic Defender at all, and Marvel has used him in comics seemingly without needing to license from A.G.E. (at the time prior to Hasbro buying the Micronauts property), I guess there is a case to be made that he is a Marvel owned character.

    From the sounds of it though, they didn't want to chance it in the MCU given that James Gunn wanted him for the Guardians of the Galaxy and was denied.

    It wasn't called Microverse, but was released as this...




    Commander Ranna, Marionette, and some of the other characters from Micronauts are Marvel property, but they cannot refer to them as Space Glider, Galactic Defender etc. names that were part of the toy line and licensed for use at the time of the Micronauts series. It's also why those characters have never appeared in any revivial of the Micronauts at other publishers because they are not part of the Micronauts IP.
