- Comic book character featured on the sitcom
MAD ABOUT YOU/NBC/1992-99. The premiere issue of Mega Void No.
1 "Talon Emerges From Her Crib" debuted a blond-haired super
vixen named Talon, the Evil Queen of the Universe, who could
crush a planet between her thighs.
The idea for Talon was
apparently inspired by a former relationship between Jamie Buchman (Helen Hunt) and her artist ex-boyfriend Alan Tofsky
When Jamie saw the Mega Void issue and that she was a dead ringer
for the evil tyrant, she became infuriated and confronted its creator at a comic
book store signing party.
"This whole comic is our relationship but in outer
space," Jamie screamed. "Turn to page 14 - The Centurion General forgets to
fetch Talon's scepter and she peels back the layers of his brain." (the time he
forgot to make reservations); "Talon sucks the life force from his soul" (The
time she took a sip of his orange juice at some diner); "Destroys the planet
Cardigan" (she accidentally burnt a little hole in his sweater).
Jamie claimed that his problem was that he always had to get in the last
word. When Jamie tried to say Good-Bye, Allen made some little remark that gave
him the last word. Frustrated, Jamie dove over the table to pummel him.
In a final cartoon fantasy scene, Allen says, "Face it baby, you got a
nasty streak" and Jamie as Talon tosses him into the blazing white-hot fury of
the nearby star.
