    Well, if I'm not mistaken, Derrick Wyatt wasn't really a fan of the comic, so it's possible he wouldn't know about Regan. Lockdown, as I heard it, was supposed to have a Frankenstein vibe to him, but damned if that's not a wicked coincidence at the very least.

    I'm not feeling the connection at all. Lockdown has always seemed like a homage to Death's Head to me.

    Not a fan? Hm... that is curious... considering that Lockdown's ship is named after the comic character...

    ...but he doesn't look like Death's Head at all though... They did, however, reference him with Lockdown's Ship... hmm, yes?

    The only commonalities I'm seeing are spiked joints and a large underbite...neither of which are uncommon design features. I remain unconvinced.

    Huh, never heard of Mister Regan before -- never read all of the Marvel comics.

    I'm pretty sure his ship was only named later, possibly in the comics or the Allspark almanac, which drew from a wider variety of sources than work by Wyatt exclusively.

    He was from the UK comics, which may also explain why you havent seen him before.

    There must have been enough of a similarity though as it was the first thing I thought of when Lockdown was initially revealed back in the TFA days. Greens, brown, yellow and silver colouring, one hand a weapon, the head could easily be a Death's Head style design if it had the skull and chin horns. And he's got that bounty hunter (or should I say Freelance Peacekeeping Agent, yes?) sorta tracking and capturing people occupation.
    Lockdown just needs a nice red cape. :)

    Okay, this makes a lot more sense. When I read 'Mister Reagan, I was thinking Ronald Reagan. LOL!
