Biography[edit]

Major Tom was a member of the original Team Venture and a test pilot. He crashed the TVC-15 into the Bermuda Triangle while on a test flight and was presumed dead.

His ghost surfaced years later when Dr. Venture disturbed the crash site (possibly awoken as a ghost by the Metasonic Locator), although the spirit didn't appear to want to do much of anything other than stand around screaming.

He is placated briefly by speaking to his widow Jeanie, but resumes his howls with even greater frenzy upon being informed that she has remarried his former friend, the Action Man. Major Tom's Ghost is then summarily decapitated by Brock Samson and his remains hurled back to the ocean floor, still screaming.

Inspiration[edit]

  • The character Major Tom was inspired by the character of the same name, created by David Bowie. His death scene was a near perfect recital of the song "Space Oddity", also incorporating some lines from the later Bowie song "Ashes to Ashes," including "a message to Action Man."
