The Unnamed Avenger Minimix 2

868633176837456.24563483486231

It’s essentially the spiritual sequel to The Unnamed Avenger Minimix. It’s still as strange and for sure totally lacks direction. This time we trade cosmic luchadores and Bollywood fighters for Afro super sentais. Sort of. Enjoy.

Kudos to Jussi and Discotruper for part of the selection. (more…)
