Here is the idea; a sci-fi genre inspired by late 20th century culture, fashion, technology, and science fiction. It would be a compressed, mixed up history of those decades, as might be imagined by someone a century from now who has an incomplete knowledge of the era.

There would be team-ups of David Bowie and Steve Wozniak, who travel in Wozniak's amazing harrier jet. Assassins in Disco clothing would work for the M-13 gang. The Gunslinger from Westworld, under command from the Colossus supercomputer, would go on a killing spree across Los Angeles, and the Terminator, under the command of HAL 9000, would arrive to save Sharon Tate.

It would be a nonsensical blending of everything iconic from a half-century period. A great setting for adventure.

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Presumably Collosus would be housed in the body of a metal man with a Russian accent  Wink Cheesy Presumably created by the radiation leak from Chernobyl "He was an heroic firefighter on a suicide mission to shut down the reactor. Little did he know that against all the odds he would survive to be rebuilt. Better than he was. Better. Stronger. Faster."

Which would tie in with the killing spree that would somehow tie in with the end of the Cold War...

I speak in syllabubbles. They rise to the surface by the force of levity and pop out of my mouth unneeded and unheeded.

We need a girl from the future, Alice. We need at least one good-looking Communist.

I was thinking of Magic Johnson, but yes, that MJ would merge well! Maybe under certain circumstances he changes into a panther himself.
