What happened to Lord Buckethead?

[-] Cornelius_Wangenheim 93 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

The guy playing him didn't own the copyright, since it was originally from an 80s TV show. Once he made the character famous, the TV show copyright owner fucked him over and he had to come up with his own character, thus Count Binface.

That’s pretty shitty. I think count binface is a better name tho tbh.

Pretty sure the good Lord Buckethead only runs against the Prime Minister in general elections.

Every hero needs a sidekick for the smaller jobs

Ok, I'm completely wrong; they're the same person. Lord Buckethead was copyrighted so he had to metamorphasize (painfully by his account) into Count Binface.

Not sure if this is a better supehero backstory though.

I heard he was rebuilt after a long and arduous war on the planet Kopirite

Interesting back story.

Lord Buckethead has been three different people in different elections.

Count Binface is the second Lord Buckethead, the one who made the character famous when he stood against May in Maidenhead.

May in Maidenhead

That's not a part of the bit, is it?

A sad story involving a young food waste bin and Operation Yewtree.
