    So the character in the literature, comics, game, and toy is just his twin brother named Mirage?

    Either way, it doesn't matter; most of us don't think of Brawl as "Devastator" and most of us won't think of Mirage as "Raphael" or whatever.

    So help me if they name him Mario. His name is Mirage so there.
    This had better be a joke.

    In all the treatments and scripts all the way up to the post production of the DOTM movie, the Ferrari was never referred to as Mirage. He was referred to by other names such as Rush & Enzo, but never as Mirage.

    Capisce?

    He'll be called the Pesci for always wanting to start a fight with those scary looking blades on his arms.:) 

    Anyways, I'll just wait until I see the film (maybe, hopefully Botcon toy preview images/news) to make final judgement.

    The point is the Ferrari in the film can't be named after any Hasbro TF name. Period.

    May I ask why you even brought it up in the first place? I mean, I'm sure you knew this would be the kind of response you would get especially when you can't even say who the character is.

    Alright...then why would Hasbro allow SO many uses of the name Mirage for this character? I just don't see why they would allow that to go on for so long...I mean, shouldn't they know more about it than you or anybody else?

    But hey, I'll find out when I go to the movie. It doesn't really matter to me what his name is, but this whole situation doesn't feel right at all...

    ]

    Does the Hasbro packaging of Mirage mention the name Ferrari in any way shape or form? Do we see a Ferrari shield, emblem or logo on the packaging or toy?

    I don't hate the name Enzo. But seriously, the toys will all be Mirage regardless of his name in the film (ex: Devastator in movie, Brawl for all merchandise) so who gives a good goddamn.

    like the Audi wasnt Sideways?

    i dunno. i throw my hands up. this whole argument is silly and to be honest, im not even sure why anybody had to pipe in and say what they said about Mirage not being Mirage. Why stir the waters and rile up the fandom? :p

    No, I'm just saying...*sigh*...is or isn't the red robot that we've been seeing so much of, the ferarri bot in the movie? If he is, then there's really no denying that he's been named Mirage by every other official source but you. You can see why we're skeptical here.
