Notes from the Terminator chronology


This story takes place in an unidentified future year some time after the first RoboCop film, in an alternate universe from that seen in either the main RoboCop or Terminator franchises.


Didja Know?


Robocop versus the Terminator was a 4-issue mini-series published by Dark Horse Comics in 1992. A 1994 video game of the same name for the Sega and Nintendo gaming systems was loosely based on this mini-series.

Dr. Marie Lazarus



Didja Notice?


    Pages 2-3 depicts a hypothetical launching of Terminator spaceships from Earth to explore and conquer the cosmos, eliminating all living things in order to organize the universe. Some past Terminator stories have indicated that Skynet is only interested in eliminating humanity, not all life on Earth.

    At the bottom of page 3, notice that there appear to be several Terminator endoskeletons standing watch on a conning tower of one of the spaceships.

On page 12, a sign on the chain-link fence around the ball field reads "NO SHOOTING, KILLING, MAIMING, PUSHING".


On page 14, a Terminator dog bursts out of its own skin and fur to reveal a sort of spider-Terminator.
