Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #38

It's interesting that Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #38 has a similar set-up to Super Sons/Dynomutt Special #1 which featured Dynomutt asking for help when the Blue Falcon started behaving erratically. While Super Sons/Dynomutt Special #1 went for a gritty feel that didn't really fit the characters, Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #38 features a more all-ages story that involves the criminal Manyfaces masquerading as Blue Falcon to ruin the hero's reputation (and not being possessed by an evil spirit, and Dynomutt believes).

If something wasn't wrong with Blue Falcon there would be no need to call in Mystery, Inc. which limits the mystery a bit more than usual. While not one of the comic's stronger issues, there is still fun to be had with Scooby-Doo and Dynomutt working together and the constant comparisons to Batman and Robin. The less realistic version of the cartoon dog using his many cybernetic features is also far less ghoulish (and plays on Dynomutt often malfunctioning when trying to help). For fans.
