If you wanted a cool toon with M.A.S.K., you got one. If you wanted a power ballad to open it up, you got one. The Mobile Armored Strike Kommand was an elite task force that ran through 1980s animated television with the likes of G.I. Joe and the Transformers. Better known as M.A.S.K., the group featured a number of specialized warriors led by Matt Trakker, who each possessed a vehicle that could transform into battle mode. This was especially helpful when they went up against their nemesis V.E.N.O.M., also known as the Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem. Best of all, the soldiers each donned specially charged masks that offered super powers to the wearer. Now, Shout! Factory and FremantleMedia Enterprises are bringing the classic M.A.S.K. series home to DVD and downloadable formats.
